It's the perfect weather for a light sweater and a flowing maxi dress paired with knee high tan boots and a splash of gold. I'm loving the tall grass and sun as an added touch to the overall look, comfy prairie chic. What are you wearing today?

Five lovely ladies stood out as my best dressed for this year's SAG Awards, making it much easier to pick contenders in a sea of pretty dresses. Here are my 5 best dressed picks from last night's red carpet...
1. Natalie Portman
She absolutely got it right this time around, and I love her goddess like dress paired with the embellished clutch. Simple, gorgeous and flattering.
2. Rosario Dawson
I adore this light yellow dress, it's just the right amount of draping and it makes me anticipate spring even more. Not to mention those amazing turquoise earrings are a perfect pairing with the yellow. I might have to DIY those...
3. Julia Stiles
Navy and Ombre = Gorgeous, this dress is the right amount of everything. I'm loving the simple accessories with the deep smokey eye. And if you didn't see her in Dexter this season you need to rent it - oh my ghad.
4. Kim Kardashian
Though I'm not the biggest Kim Kardashian fan, I absolutely love her in this one shouldered purple dress.
5. Mila Kunis
Last but not least this fiery Alexander McQueen watercolor number is oh my gosh worthy. I love everything about this look from the hair to the belt to the clutch. Ah-mazing.
While doing some much need internet browsing/ online retail therapy yesterday I came across a fabulous online boutique that I just couldn't wait to share. The Unique Closet is exactly how it sounds, unique, not to mention irresistibly reasonable carrying everything a gal needs from dresses to get you in the mood for spring to skirts that are bound to grab some attention. The Unique Closet also carries plus sizes, which is a plus in my book! Here are 5 of my favorite finds under $50.
It's been a long week and you need to reward yourself with something FREE, you deserve it. Just print this baby out and take it to the nearest Bath and Body Works and snag your freebie while supplies last (no purchase necessary, seriously).
Wow, this week went by fast! I did however finally get my Vince Camuto "Momas" (which are on sale at Dillard's for $56 until 1/29) in the mail and it made my day, I literally couldn't wait to slip my feet in them and thank goodness they went with my outfit so perfectly. I kind of want one in every color now ;).

H&M is kicking off Spring with eco-smart fashions bursting with color, from gorgeous dresses to Divided's urban collection there's something "green" for everyone this time around. The collection in-stores now, is made from organic cotton, recycled polyester or wool, and will have a green label (much like the Garden Collection) including all details of the materials used. For women H&M aimed for a more feminine feel whereas the menswear went with a more preppy effect. Here's a peek at what they have to offer (all dresses shown are $19.95, cheap and eco-friendly - my hero).
And in case you haven't heard the fantastic news about H&M launching online shopping in the USA at the end of the year, you know now and can start counting down the days until it kicks off!

Many of you already know about Affordable Scarves from here and here, but if you haven't gotten in the know you might want to catch up and grab some uber fabulous winter, leopard print, circle and many more scarves under $20. (Plus get 15% off your entire order with promo code: WINTER11)
So when Affordable Scarves asked me if I wanted to review one of their items I already knew what I wanted to try, the Laurene V-Neck Poncho, because I've been lusting after a poncho all season. And when it arrived it seemed to fit perfectly with my winter essentials, thus pairing it with my leopard maxi (because we all know I can't keep it away for too long). I'm actually looking forward to remixing it with other fabulous pieces.

Not to mention they have everything a mom-to-be needs from, diaper bags, nursing necessities, and plenty of baby gear - all on their easily maneuverable site. Plus an excellent customer service staff that is friendly and fantastic to work with. I snagged the Angel Ditsy Floral Maternity Dress (and a few nursing essentials for after baby is born) on my online shopping trip with Due Maternity and received it exactly 3 days later, and all orders over $49 get free shipping which is a serious plus because I hate shipping prices.
As far as the dress goes, there was a slight mishap (possibly during shipping) and my dress had a small tear in the seam. However the slip was actually thick enough to wear alone and I'm thrilled I got a 2 for 1 dress deal, that I may not have realized if it weren't for the mishap.
