Coat: H&M (old), Blouse: Forever 21 (gift), Leather Pants: H&M $30 (similar here), Shoes: Christian Louboutin
 
 Hey guys! Last time I wore these leather pants were in Grungy Chic. This time I wanted something a bit more feminine. My sister gave me this peplum top for Christmas and I love it! The puffy sleeves make it so girlie so I thought it was a perfect match. The color blocked envelope clutch was also a Christmas present. I LOVE the color combo, it was the perfect pop of color for a black and white outfit.
 
On another note, it was absolutely freezing this day! The struggle of a style blogger! lol
 
 
Have a great day loves!

Polka Dots and Plaid at the National Gallery of Art

 





 
 
 Happy Friday loves! Before VA was hit with the most recent snow storm, Angel and I made a little day trip to DC. We love to explore so we ended up at the National Gallery of Art. With the west building, east building, and sculpture garden we still weren't able to see everything. Guess we'll just have to make anther trip :)
 
Now for some outfit details...
 



 
 


 
Rings/Bag: H&M

Blazer: JCrew Factory $40 (sale), Shirt: Forever21 $15, Jeans: Hollister $20 (sale), Booties: BCBGeneration $55
 
By now you probably all have noticed my love for plaid. I was so excited when this blazer went on sale at JCrew Factory! (Original price was over $100.) I thought I would pair it with another fav print of mine, polka dots. It's always fun to mix prints. A rule I always keep in mind when mixing is to make sure one print is smaller than the other. Mixing 2 large different patterns can overwhelm you, especially on a petite frame. 
 
So if you guys are ever in the DC area make sure you check out the museums! They are all pretty incredible. It's a great (free) way to spend your day!
 
Have a great weekend!!

T-Shirt: PLSCO $15, Skirt: H&M $50 (Similar here), Clutch: JCrew (gift), Shoes: Christian Louboutin
 
Hello beauties! I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! Yesterday's weather was great so I was finally able to wear this full midi skirt. I have been searching high and low for a classic skirt like this (that wasn't $100+) and finally found one at H&M. I love how feminine it is! Makes me feel like a 1950s house wife. I was going for a more casual modern look, so I opted for a tee and statement necklace. This skirt can also be worn with a crop top, classic white collar shirt, or chunky sweater. I'm really looking forward for Spring so I can wear it more often :)
 
Talk to you guys soon! Oh, and happy snow day!

Snapshots From My Dressing Room

Happy Wednesday babes!
About a year ago our second bedroom was turned in to a blog/dressing room. It's where Angel edits my blog photos and where I keep all of my favorite things.  I love everything about this room! Some of my favorites things are the purple wall, the motif of Audrey Hepburn, and my one of a kind clothing and shoe racks made from metal pipes (made by my Mr.). The room is furnished mostly with things from HomeGoods and IKEA and inspired by photos from Pinterest. :) Here is a look...
 

Metal Pipes for Shoe Rack: Home Depot
 
Inspiration Board: HomeGoods
 
Audrey Photo: Ikea
 
 
Mini mannequin: Gift//Candy Dish: Ikea//Candle Holders: Gift//Jewelry Display (plates & handle holder): Ikea 

 
Bookshelf: Ikea
 


Heels: Nine West//Flats: Forever 21//Eiffel Tower: Target
 
 
Mannequin: HomeGoods//Fur Vest: Urban Outfitters//Peplum Belt: ASOS
 
 
Candle Holders/Candy Dish: Ikea//Small Desert Dish: HomeGoods.

So what do you guys think? There are still a few things I want to add like a white fuzzy rug and a small ottoman. I do have a small black computer desk that wasn't photographed. That's where Angel's computer and editing equipment is kept.
 
Well hope you guys have a fab rest of the week!
