stylish overalls
Yep, I took the plunge and got a pair of overalls. I'm probably just as shocked as you are, because let's be real the last thing I wanted to do is recreate was my brother and I in our matching overalls as kids. Though I have a feeling he might be proud right now.

However, I figure when it comes to trends you have to try them at least once as you never know what you're going to love or not love without at least trying it once, right? Plus it was really hard for me to say no when I saw them hanging there for only $25 at Marshall's - so I grabbed them, tried them on and kind of fell in love. I wasn't the only one who loved them, when I showed my husband what I was wearing he quickly said how much he loved them, he was serious, and I was surprised to say the least. But I digress...I immediately knew that my first outfit would have to channel SJP on Ellen because I really loved it, like so much so that I was immediately ok with overalls. So, it felt natural.

So, Overalls anyone?

Short Suit

15 April 2014

I've been searching for a short suit for quite sometime now. Originally I wanted something subtly printed or perhaps even pastel (really, all the above), but when I spotted this one on major sale from ASOS I knew the price and timing was right. Luckily for me it goes perfectly with my also new blouse from Everlane

Tailored, Bold and Perfect for Spring. Expect to see more appearances in the near future while I pair it away...

Beauty Must-haves: Liquid Keratin

14 April 2014

If you read on a regular basis you're fully aware of my unruly mane. 

Now, while on most occasions I embrace it, I sometimes find that I want to look a little more polished. Enter Liquid Keratin. A new at home keratin treatment targetted towards creating longer, smoother and straighter hair. Now, I'll be the first to admit that I was worried it was going to turn my hair stick straight but I used it sparingly just in case. At first, yes it was straight and it was definitely smoother. However, as time went on I was able to keep my [precious] waves, like I had hoped.  It's been about 3 weeks since my treatment and I've found it's stayed pretty managable in the smooth department (less tangles baby!),  and it's supposed to last up to 3 months. Best part, the kit is under $60. Up to 3 months of sleeker, smoother hair ? I think yes.

What's In Stores: Kohl's

09 April 2014

It's been ages since my last tripe to Kohl's, so when I popped in last weekend while I was in the neighborhood I realized I may have been missing out. Pretty detailed tops, pleated skirts and playful caught my attention as well as a few structured bags and home goods...

Here's what I spotted...

Color was huge in the hooseware department, which hasn't changed much. Ikat and character mugs were massively on sale as well as some cheery kitchen essentials. Sometimes color makes everything so much better. You almost forget your overspending, almost.
