Spring Style – Half Sheer Skirt

Hello, hello! So much has been going on lately and I don’t know where to begin. Let’s see… There is a movie being filmed in my area called Spring Breakers starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and….James Franco. Really. In my hometown! They have been filming on St. Pete Beach, which just so happens to be where I work. The movie has everyone all in a flutter and everyone trying to be extras. What are the odds that my celeb crush is filming a movie here?! They just filmed a major pool party scene at a hotel near my work which is also the same hotel that my family has had a timeshare at for years. Kind of funny. The stars have been seen around town, even Selena with Justin. My boyfriend has been making fun of me for following the filming online via Twitter. How often is a major movie filmed in your town though? (if you don’t live in LA or NYC, etc.)

Check out this picture uploaded on Ashley Benson’s Instagram account:
The movie description on IMDB is “Four college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work.” Pretty different from Selena’s other roles, I would say.

Onto other things more relevant to my life…
I am looking to buy a house, so I’ve been house hunting lately and hopefully will find something perfect for me, my boyfriend and my two cats and his husky. I can’t wait to have a home of my own, so I am trying to be patient. 🙂 I also just started doing yoga which has been great for my posture and well-being. Meditation has really helped ease my mind and I am loving it.

I hadn’t been shopping in while but I had been seeing these half sheer skirts everywhere and found this bar III one at Macy’s that I fell in love with.

 It is so comfy!

I’ve also seen some other cute ones that are a lot more dressy with lace and such. What are your thoughts on these skirts? Boho-chic? Too long for your taste? At least my long legs are good for some sort of style for once.

Scarves & Cardis

On one of my trips to H&M with my Christmas gift cards, I purchased some cardigans and a scarf. Well, now I definitely wish I bought more than one scarf. I fell in love with it. I don’t know if it is because I live in Florida that I am just catching onto this trend, or what. We’ve had a few cold fronts lately that I most certainly have not been prepared for. It has been in the 40s and a little over a week ago it got down to the 30s.

I love this floral one because it has a few colors to match with it. It was only about $7 at H&M. I definitely plan on purchasing a few more. I’m thinking some bright colors and maybe a funky print and a basic one.
With my winter wardrobe lacking, I don’t have too many winter boots. These are a great pair of brown leather Steve Maddens that are cute and surprisingly comfy. The grey cardigan is from H&M, as well as the jeans.

I actually turned this scarf into an infinity to make it easier to wrap around and stay. I tied both ends in a knot and wrapped it up. I got the idea from this amazing video that has 25 ways to tie a scarf…who knew!

Do you guys have a favorite scarf?

The Holidays & 2012

Hello everyone! I am here, I am here! I have been slacking on my blog posting lately, which is no good! I started some new jobs and with that and family in town things have been crazy lately. Oh, and I got into minor a car accident (the day before Christmas Eve) and have had to deal with the stubborn insurance companies and finding transportation. Luckily I was not at fault, but boy has it been a hassle. Since I have been absent through the holidays, I’ll give a little update on what I received from my awesome family and boyfriend.

I received a year gym membership from my mother, which I am so happy about! I can now have my boyfriend be my personal trainer, feel healthy and get back into shape again! Rob got me a beautiful sterling silver heart necklace. I also got a bunch of H&M gift cards and a Sephora gift card. (Hello, shopping sprees!) I really couldn’t be happier. With my budget, I did my best getting all of my loved ones the best presents I could. I printed some photos I had taken over the year, and put together some jarred goodies. Hopefully by next year I can amp up the gift giving myself.

I began going to the gym immediately and my entire body has been extremely sore for the past week, but it feels so great. I missed feeling sore!

For New Year’s Eve, Rob and I decided to have a quiet night in. We went out to eat and had some drinks at home. I wore a new outfit I got from H&M, which was both simple and edgy.

[Everything is from H&M besides the stockings and boots.]

I can’t wait to get back to reading all of your lovely blog posts and get to commenting! Hope you all had a safe and happy New Year! I look forward to 2012 and can’t wait to make it great!

Thanks to all of my top commenters of the year. I love you guys, and your blogs!

The Good & the Bad at the VMAs

I have to say that I wasn’t totally impressed with the fashion at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Everyone (according to Twitter trends) was anticipating another insane outfit from Lady Gaga, but people seemed shocked when she came out dressed as a man. Where’s the McQueen, Gaga? No meat dress?

Beyonce announced her pregnancy in this stunning Lanvin dress.

Sunny Summer Solution: Dresses

Dresses are simple. You don’t spend extra time trying to find the right shorts, jeans, tops, etc to match each other. The only thing you have to pair it with are shoes and accessories. It is a great foundation to build upon for an outfit. Living in Florida during the summer, there are days where you just can’t even bear to think about pulling on a pair of skinny jeans. Here are a few dresses I’ve found online that I think are perfect for summer.


A great everyday dress – Forever 21 $27.80

The mustard yellow color is definitely IN this summer! I’ve been seeing it everywhere. Forever 21 $13.50
