I ♥ silky tops, and this kind of sleeve. What is it called?

accessories ~ a video post

Just this past year I've discovered 2 new loves~ lipstick and jewelry! I feel like wearing either can be such a fast, simple, and inexpensive way to completely change your look ~ for the better! When it comes to jewelry, I used to shy away from big statement pieces because I thought they could only be worn by tall, larger framed women. But, I've found that if you find the right piece that has the right proportions and placement, it can work no matter how short/tall or small/big you are! I also like adding color to my outfit using jewelry rather than an article of clothing.. it's much easier for me to wear, say, a red necklace than it is to wear a red shirt/sweater!

My idea of a "quick" video is to talk on and on for 10 minutes :p
Talk about jewelry until the 7:00 mark, then I show a few scarves.
Wearing NYX "India" l/s. Love it!

Gaah I love this necklace! And love the $7 price tag!

Love how it can glam up my yoga pants and cotton top. I think this necklace would work well with a jumpsuit.

While I was picking up some beads at a local craft shop, I spotted this - how ingenius to turn a picture frame into an earring holder!

casual weekend wear

Some old photos I found. Typical (lazy) me out for morning walks~


While my work is very casual, I still have to put a bit of effort into what I'm going to wear. And I find work clothes to be slightly uncomfortable. Come the weekend, I just want to wear soft cotton all over and be as comfy as possible. Hence, loose tees, leggings, and flip flops/Uggs.

This is why I like to take self photos~

casual work

I need ideas for casual work outfits! Help!

L: Express l/s cardigan (has lil bit of cashmere!)
H&M top
F21 leopard belt
Express twill leggings (on sale for $16!)

R: Express 3/4 sleeve cardigan
Victoria's Secret dress
F21 leopard belt
Aerosole peeptoe pumps

I love the crystal buttons on the Express cardis! And they're the perfect length.
The belt was part of a 3-pack for $7 (came w/blk and red belts)!

F21 top
7 For All Mankind kid's denim
Nine West pumps

Got tired of seeing my necklaces strewn about the apt. Found this lovely jewelry stand at TJ Maxx! I love it.


Some fall/winter shoes I'd like to own, preferrably paired with miniskirts/shorts/tunic dresses~

weekend (nonwork!) clothes

Happy Friday!

Walked to H&M at lunch again today. Great excuse to leave the office and grab some sunshine. Also I wanted to get the sweater dress on pg 5 (link) that's only $10 today, but the H&M on Post St. didn't have it.

But, while I was there, I tried other things (all non work clothes yay!).


Looking at the size 2 on the hanger, I just knew it would fit!

Oops! Never mind. My boobies are too big for this dress and can't zip it up! If this came in emerald or aqua I would sooo buy it in the next size up as a fun party dress.. but the color is kinda blah with my skintone for $49.95.

Fun way to wear floral.
Their bangles come in sizes!

For shit and giggles~

I only purchased this leopard scarf. So cheap for $6.95! It's not my style to rock full on leopard clothing, but I like accessories with it. Would be cute peeking out from a jacket.

And this is a Forever21 sweater I tried on yesterday that I'd seen online:
