Heading to a music festival this summer? Here's my take on proper Day to Night attire:

This is the first piece of jewelry I ordered from the site. I think it's really unique. I love that it looks like two separate bands being held together by the heart and the little rhinestone details are so unexpected.
**I looked around the web for a coupon code you all could use & I'm pretty sure "WELCOME50" should still work for 50% your first purchase.

This post is for "thefirstgoldengirl" of Curious Leo. She requested a Prom themed What To Wear so I've styled a couple of looks for her:

As usual, I don't have any Memorial Day plans this year other than hangin' around the house with Jason & Nikki but if I happen to get a last minute invite to a backyard BBQ... I'd wear something along these lines:
Dress, Calypso St. Barth for Target
Earrings, Old Navy
Tote, Calypso St. Barth for Target
Total Cost: $140

Next Tuesday I'll be embarking on a 4 day, 3 night adventure to Atlanta & New Orleans to visit my BFF Kimberly & take a road trip to see one of my favorite bands Mumford & Sons! I'm only bringing a carry-on suitcase & my handbag, so I've gotta pack light.
Here's my game plan:
Jovovich-Hawk for Target floral dress
Jovovich-Hawk for Target polka dot dress
Tucker for Target floral dress
Rodarte for Target lace print tunic
Cognac boots from Target
Black boots from Torrid
I'll try to take some OOTD shots while I'm there so you guys can see my looks in action! In the meantime, any tips on packing light??

I thought I would try something new on my blog by sharing how I plan on styling my monthly ShoeDazzle buys. I've seen this done on YouTube before & thought it was a cute idea. This month I ordered the Matilda motorcycle boot. I love the chain & buckle details!
I plan on pairing these boots with skinny jeans & a simple top for a summer concert.
I can also see myself wearing these with a feminine LBD on date night!

Celeb-endorsed online shopping clubs are quickly becoming all the rage and while Kim Kardashian may have started it all with ShoeDazzle, Kate Bosworth is jumping on the bandwagon with her jewelry of the month society, JewelMint.
Started by Kate & her stylist Cher Coulter, the members-only site is filled with fun & funky earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets all priced at $29.99*. Here's a screen cap of my current showroom:
This is the third shopping club I've joined & I'm actually saving money! I've cut back my "in-person" shopping trips & limited myself to my beauty samples from Birchbox, a pair of shoes or a handbag from ShoeDazzle & a piece of jewelry from JewelMint. My total for the month is $80 -- I used to spend that in one store! Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE to go shopping, but I love getting pretty things in the mail every month even more!

I just wanted to write a quick post to let all of my amazing, dedicated followers that I may be a little slow with the blogging for a bit. I fear that my trusty MacBook may have gone to Apple heaven!
I have found an adorable & affordable netbook however, so rest assured that the hiatus shouldn't last long.
Crossing my fingers for the best!

Not only do I love samples because of their adorable, purse-friendly size, I love them because you get to try before you buy! Clearly, the people at Birchbox feel the same way. For just $10/month, you get to test-drive 4 to 5 beauty samples and if you decide to buy the full size product(s) from their site, you earn points towards further purchases. No more hounding the clerk at Sephora for a trial size of something you're unsure about, just check your mailbox!
Here are just some of the brands they carry:
For all the details on how the club works, watch the video below.
