Cozy Cable-Knit: A Fall to Winter OOTD

Hey there, loves!

The season of twinkly lights and coziness is upon us!   That means it’s time to break out those chunky sweaters and warm jackets!  I absolutely love all things about fall and winter.  In my opinion, this time of year is the best by far.  The Christmas decorations are already up in my house and I am listening to festive music at this very moment.   Of course, I had to include my merry Starbucks coffee that I was sipping while taking these cozy photos -it was keeping me warm in the freezing weather!

Today, I’m rocking a super cute and comfy outfit to get into the holiday mood, including some clothing pieces that were so kindly given to me by thredUp.  If you’ve never heard of it, it’s an awesome online place to shop for major deals on clothes and accessories!  Most prices are up to 90% off retail price, which is perfect for this gift giving season!  The Ann Taylor jacket that I am wearing today only cost me $50 compared to the original price of $228!  Also, I got a great deal on my cable-knit sweater from the Gap, which happened to inspire this ensemble!  I hope that you enjoy my wintery outfit of the day and it sends rays of coziness to you through the screen.

While the exact pieces I discovered on thredUp aren’t available any longer, I did find some pretty similar items for the sweater and coat!  You can also check out thredUp for yourself and find some treasures of your own for this cozy weather!  They have a huge assortment of clothes to choose from and you can specify what condition you’d prefer.  Both items I received were brand new with the tags attached!  It’s a great website if you like quality, name brand clothes with better prices. On top of all that, they’re a brand that’s great for the environment since they’ve upcycled 12 million items and saved them from going into the trash!

A Casual OOTD: Fall Flannel

Hey there, lovelies!

It sure does feel like November!  The leaves are falling and the air is crisp.  Starbucks has come out with their festive Christmas cups and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  Autumn is my favorite season -it means cute boots, hot coffee, and everything cozy and nice.  Today, I’ve put together an outfit that’s perfect for this chilly weather.  I wish I could live in these clothes for the rest of eternity.  Give me a flannel and some booties and I’m set for life!

Fall Floral

Hello, beauties!

With fall approaching fast, I’ve been very excited about infinity scarves, boots, and sweaters!  Autumn is my favorite season since I love the fashion, food, and the weather!  Even the makeup during this season is something I look forward to!  I’ve put together a neutral fall-inspired outfit that is very cute and casual for everyday wear.  Every piece in this outfit is a basic staple for the fall season and goes perfectly with the pop of color from the infinity scarf!  This is a typical outfit that I would wear on a cool fall day and I hope that you enjoy it!

Casual Summer Outfit of the Day | OOTD

Hi, everyone!

Today, I’ll be showing you the outfit that I put together for the summertime! I love how relaxed, but cute this look is!  It’s casual and comfortable but still looks like you put effort into the way you dress!  All of the clothes and jewelry I am wearing will be linked if you are interested in checking anything out. 🙂  Enjoy!

IMG_2685IMG_0345-1IMG_2632

I purchased my kimono from Abercrombie and Fitch, but they no longer have the same print or style available, so I would recommend this one from American Eagle instead since it is a little more similar to the one I am wearing in the photo.  One good thing about the kimono from Abercrombie that is in stock is that it’s 40% off along with everything else right now, online!

IMG_2691IMG_2638IMG_2630

I purchased my shorts and tank top from American Eagle (AKA my favorite place on earth).  These shorts are SO. COMFORTABLE.  I have them in every color since I love them so much and they are always on sale.  I purchased these for $25, which is what they are still on sale for right now!  The tank top is super comfortable and flowy.  I love the lace details on the neck and bottom edge.  I purchased this for $35.  American Eagle no longer sells the exact same tank top with the lace, but they have a bunch of extremely similar versions that are the same style.  I love everything from American Eagle since all of their clothing is extremely soft and stretchy -including jeans!

IMG_2707 (1)  IMG_2741IMG_2699 (1) IMG_2651IMG_2676 (1)IMG_2629IMG_0346

My necklace is from Forever21.  They no longer have the exact same necklace, but  they have many other similar heart patterns.  This cost $2.50.  If you are looking for some cute, cheap jewelry, I really recommend you look around Forever21!  Lastly, my toms were purchased from the Tom’s website for $48.  I LOVE these things and constantly wear them!

4th of July Party Ideas! | DIY Photo Booth, Snacks, Makeup, and More!

Hello again!

Happy 4th of July!

IMG_0361

Today I am so excited to be sharing with you guys some super festive, fun, and easy things you can do to make your fourth just a little more spectacular!  I have put together a bunch of cute ideas for an Independence Day Party and hope that this post helps some of you out and gives you a little patriotic inspiration!  All of these ideas are very inexpensive and can be done last minute as this holiday tends to creep up rather quickly most of the time! 🙂 Let’s begin, shall we?

First off, let’s put on some festive makeup to get in the mood for this fabulous party we’ll be throwing!  I started off with my base makeup on and eyes prepped.

IMG_0182

I added a brown shade called Tease from the Naked 2 palette to my crease with Sephora’s crease brush.  As you can see I love this color quite a lot.  I am devastated that I can barely get any product out of the pan anymore!

IMG_0247  IMG_0184

Next, I placed a shimmery, silver shade called Verve, again from the Naked 2 palette, all over my lid to give it some sparkle with Sephora’s shadow brush.

IMG_0194 IMG_0218

IMG_0252

I then put a bright, sparkly white shade called Swan Song (ooh, how fancy!) from my little Kat Von D palette on my inner corner and brow bone with Sephora’s concealer brush.

IMG_0259

IMG_0207 IMG_0208

Next, I lined my upper lash line with Sephora’s slanted eyeliner brush with a dark brown shade called Busted from the Naked 2 palette to give more definition.

IMG_0263IMG_0194

Now for the fun part; the color!  I used a sparkly blue liner by Nickak that came in my Ipsy a few months back to line the lower, inner corner of my eye.  I just LOVE this pop of festiveness!

IMG_0266IMG_0231

Now of course we gotta get dem lashes done, gurl, so I then went in with Perversion mascara by Urban Decay and then sealed in that coat with some waterproof covergirl mascara.  I find that Perversion tends to get all around my eyes if I don’t seal it in with a good, waterproof mascara, but when used together, these two are my current lash dream team!

IMG_0234  IMG_0274

Of course, we need to tie that bright pop of red in there somewhere and what better way than with a classic red lip?  I am lining my lips with a clear lip liner by MUFE that will make sure that my bright red lips don’t bleed.  Then I am going in with my adorable, little sample size of Marc Jacobs’ So Rouge lipstick.  IT’S SO PRETTY.  AGH.  I just love it. 🙂

IMG_0281IMG_0223 (1)IMG_0227 (1)

And there we have our beautiful, simple, patriotic makeup!

IMG_0285

Onto the outfit!  I am wearing a plaid shirt from Aeropostale, jean shorts from American Eagle, white vans, and, OF COURSE, a red bandana, because it screams country pride and is SO cute.  A red bandana is a super cheap and easy way to tie some festiveness into your outfit! 🙂  Also, any jean jackets look very cute for this holiday in my opinion, so if you have one lying around, it would be a cute addition to a simple red or blue shirt for a simple 4th of July outfit!

IMG_0295

Now that we look the part for this party, let’s make the food!

I have put together some ridiculously easy and cute recipes for patriotic snacks that your guests will love!  That is if you don’t eat it all first.

For the first snack, we will be making red, white, and blue skewers!  You will need some red and blue fruit or berries of your choice that you happen to have in your fridge (I have picked blueberries and strawberries), marshmallows, and -of course- skewers.

IMG_0371

Layer them on your skewers in a red white and blue pattern and lay them out in a cute dish.  Your guests will love them!  They are SO cute and, best of all, extremely simple!

IMG_0380   IMG_0376

Onto the next snack -Patriotic Popcorn! THIS STUFF IS SO DELICIOUS.  Be warned; if you make this, you may eat it all yourself. 😉

Start by popping some popcorn or buying pre-popped popcorn that has no seasonings or butter.

IMG_0420

Next, melt some white chocolate and drizzle it over your bowl of crunchy goodness.

IMG_0414 IMG_0421 IMG_0411 IMG_0423

Now sprinkle on some red, white, and blue candy, mix (I mixed mine with a spatula because it was very hot), and serve in a festive bowl.

IMG_0441    IMG_0429

Done!  Now you have the most delicious and simple snack to get everyone hooked on!

Of course, we’ll need a drink to wash all this sugar down, so I have made an Independence Iced Tea.

You’ll need red, berry-flavored tea bags, blueberries, and either sugar or sprite

Start by heating up your water.

IMG_0365

Next, add in your tea bags and wait for them to steep.

IMG_0370  IMG_0366

Take out the tea bags and pour the tea into glasses with ice. (and a cute straw;)

IMG_0383 IMG_0384

Add some blueberries, ice and sweetener of your choice.  I added stevia to mine.  I did not have sprite, but it would make this drink really fizzy and sweet! 🙂

IMG_0387 IMG_0385

Feel free to decorate your glasses with fruit!

IMG_0400 IMG_0404

Tadahhh! All done!  And so yummy!

Onto the best part… decorations!

A photo booth is always a good idea at parties and they are super cheap and easy to make!

You will need a table cloth, streamers, and props (which I will show you how to make).

Hang up your table cloth in an area with good lighting.  I first tried to hang mine outside, but then realized the wind did not want to cooperate with me… it ended up turning me into a superhero, so it’s all good.  I decided to hang it inside in the end. 🙂

IMG_0321IMG_0323IMG_0320 (2) IMG_0317

Add your streamers and any other decor your little heart desires.

IMG_0351 IMG_0354

Done!

Now, for the props.

You will need some stars, straws, and a glue gun (or tape).  You can cut the stars out yourself on some festive paper or buy them at the store.  I got mine at Walmart for supah cheap! 🙂

IMG_0324

Glue your stars to your patriotic straws with a hot glue gun and let the glue dry.

IMG_0328 \

I placed mine in a cute little jar along with some flags for everyone to use as props!

IMG_0336 (2) \ \

Now, you and your guests will have a ton of fun posing with your cute photo booth!

IMG_0364 IMG_0363 IMG_0362 IMG_0361 IMG_0357 IMG_0360 IMG_0359

If you want to make your house a little more patriotic for this lovely holiday, I have a perfect little DIY for you!

I will be making cute, burlap star signs!

You will need three small canvases, burlap, a staple gun, three wooden stars, red, white, and blue paint, paint brushes, and a hot glue gun.  I purchased my canvases from Walmart, where they already were covered in burlap, so I will not have to staple mine on.  These cost about $4 for a pack of two.  If you need to staple the burlap onto your canvases, simply wrap the edges like you would a present and staple in place along the backside.  Make sure that your burlap is stretched tight!

Now, paint your stars and let them dry.

IMG_0307IMG_0315 IMG_0310

Feel free to make your stars more rustic-looking with a little sand paper!  Then, hot glue them onto your canvases and let the glue set.

IMG_0340 (1)IMG_0341IMG_0344 (1)IMG_0345 (1)

All done!  These cute little stars are so easy and fun to make!  They can spruce up any area quite nicely and bring some patriotic cuteness into your home!

And with that, our Fourth of July Partay has sadly come to a close. Thank you all so much for reading!  I hope that you enjoyed this post and maybe found some patriotic inspiration!  Happy 4th of July!  See you next time!

XO,

Hanna

 

Affordable Gift Guide | Stocking Stuffers under $15!

~Hello, lovelies!~

I simply could not hold back the urge to do a Christmas post any longer, so today, I am going to show you some gifts which are perfect for stocking stuffers, little gifts for friends or family, or maybe even spoiling yourself. 😉  Some of the gifts are a little over $15, but I tried to keep them under that budget for the most part and the exceptions were just too amazing to not include.  The holiday season can leave your wallet hurting, so I thought doing a guide for less expensive, BUT still just as amazing presents would be a good idea.  I will have more gift guides and festive Christmas-y posts to come, also!  Did I mention I’m obsessed with Christmas?

Let’s start off with the beauty lovers, since I am one myself. Sephora’s All Access Glam Gold and Silver Eye and Face Palette is something anyone with a makeup obsession would enjoy!  And it comes with a lot of colors and products in it for only $15!  It’s a steal!

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 11.37.41 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.20.14 AMScreen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.20.03 AM

Another gorgeous palette is Sephora’s The Beauty of Giving Back Blush Palette, which costs only $15 also!  It includes so many gorgeous colors and the packaging is so pretty!

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.22.06 AMScreen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.22.13 AM

Any woman would enjoy receiving a nice bottle of perfume!  The sad part is they are usually really expensive, BUT not in this case!  The Chloé Mini Travel Gift Set costs only $15!  I think yes!  And I mean the packaging is just so perfect!

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.24.12 AMScreen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.24.22 AM

Any athletic people or health-nuts (myself included) would love a fruit infusing water bottle.  They come in tons of colors and make your water taste great!

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 1.02.00 AMScreen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.59.24 AM

Any tech-lover would enjoy opening up a lens that attaches to their phone!  These lenses turn your phone into a camera and they have many different kinds to choose from.  They work for android and iPhone AND only cost $20.  I know, that’s $5 over the $15 that I promised, but hey, this gift is amazing, so it’s worth it. 🙂

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 1.08.08 AMScreen Shot 2014-11-18 at 1.07.43 AM

For the bookworm, I recommend All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr.  It’s perfect for those people who have already read everything.  It’s a historical book that takes a little more thought, so it’s not quite a light read, but it’s an enjoyable one.  According to Amazon, it is “…about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.”  It costs $16.20.

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 1.33.52 AM

For teen bookworms, I recommend The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, in which a teenage girl, Clary gets pulled into the world of shadowhunters and demons.  I love this book so much and pretty much EVERY teen would, so it’s a great choice. It costs $7.37.

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 1.32.12 AM

A good present for guys or girls is this Water Resistant Speaker, which comes in tons of colors and can even be stuck to the wall of your shower!  It only costs $14.99 and is perfect for when you want music at the pool or beach! 🙂

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 12.07.36 AM  Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 12.07.06 AM Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 12.24.35 AMScreen Shot 2014-11-20 at 12.24.29 AM

Another good present is a DIY Guitar Pick Punch, which allows you to make a guitar pick out of anything!  I think that’s pretty cool and anyone who plays guitar would really enjoy receiving it.

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 12.40.01 AM Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 12.39.52 AM

Something that I think ANYONE would love is this Smartphone Projector from IWOOT, which works with iphones and androids. It’s amazing! It only costs 15 pounds, so it would be around $20. I think that it is just the perfect present and would work for guys and girls.

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.01.00 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.01.08 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.01.16 PM

Another unisex gift is this Scratch Map, from IWOOT. This is perfect for someone who loves to travel! It’s a map that comes in black or white and the land is gold, metallic and scratchable. When the person travels to a new place, they scratch it off on the map! Not only is it fun, it looks cool and would be great to hang on a wall as a really nice and personalized decoration. The white map costs 10 pounds and the black map costs 18 pounds.

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.04.51 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.05.02 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.08.45 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.08.55 PM

For anyone who loves to take pictures, this Snap Remote -again from IWOOT- would be an amazing present! It is a little button remote that allows you to take pictures while away from your phone.  It comes with a stand and an app that is used with the remote to take pictures. I would love this present and I think anyone else who loves photography would, too!  It costs 14 pounds.

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.11.05 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.11.12 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.11.19 PM

A good little gift for your girlfriends would be this little set from The Body Shop, called Soft Hands, Warm Kisses. It comes in a bunch of different scents and includes a hand cream and lip butter. They are just such great little gifts, because pretty much ANY girl would love lotion and a lip butter, so you know this will be a winner and it will be something they actually use! J These are $10 for one or $15 for two.

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.18.51 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.19.02 PM

Another good gift that you really can’t lose with is this set of Festive Picks from The Body Shop, which is slightly larger than the last one. This one costs $15 and include shower cream, body butter, body scrub, soap, and a loofah. This comes in many different scents and is on sale right now, since it’s usually $25, so it’s a steal!

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 8.36.09 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 8.37.03 PM

This next gift is for any man in your life and is called the Energizing Toiletries Trio Wash Bag, which includes two face washes and a post-shave recovery balm. I think that gifts like these are great for guys who you have absolutely no clue what to get for, because who doesn’t like face wash? Chances are, he’ll enjoy this AND it’s only $15, so your wallet will be happy, too!

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.32.29 PM

Absolutely anyone would love a cute mug for Christmas, so I included these adorable monogrammed mugs from Anthropologie, which cost $10.  They are impossible not to like and whoever you give it to will love that they have their own personalized mug with their initial on it.

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.48.53 PM

This Magical Thinking Faceted Glass Vanity Box from Urban Outfitters is perfect for anyone who loves jewelry and would go great with a cute little necklace or anything else that’s small in the gift you’re giving, because it will fit right inside! It only costs $14.99.

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.54.03 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.54.12 PM

Speaking of jewelry, a super cute necklace for any girl in your life is this Layering Initial Charm Necklace from Urban Outfitters, which costs $16. It’s beautiful, not too expensive, and personalized! What else could you want?

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 7.56.28 PMScreen Shot 2014-11-29 at 8.32.17 PM

Any woman who loves to bake in your life would love these ADORABLE cookie cutters from Anthropologie!  They are three stars.  One is coppery/rose gold, one is silver, and one is gold.  I am OBSESSED with them!  They are just way too cute!  They cost $14.

Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 8.26.27 PM Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 8.26.21 PM

And with that, this gift guide has come to close! Look for more of my gift guides which will be coming up and will include more expensive gifts along with affordable ones. I am planning on doing a girl’s gift guide and a guy’s gift guide. I hope you lovelies enjoyed! See you next time!

My Fall Favorites | Must-Haves for Fall 2014

~Hello, Lovelies!~

I’m back today to show you all my must-haves and favorites for, in my opinion, the best season; Fall! I am in love with the leaves, crisp air, and holidays in this season.  I also love the anticipation of Christmas during Fall along with all of the delicious and warm Fall foods. So, now, let me show you my necessities during this cozy season!

Starting off with makeup, I have been loving a nice matte, brown-ish red lipstick, because I think it just screams Fall.  I received City Color’s Be Matte Lipstick in M7 Cappuccino in September’s Ipsy Bag and I was so excited!  A lip color like this is definitely necessary for Fall!

IMG_0966IMG_0952IMG_0948IMG_0940

A simple trick I’ve been using to turn any lipstick matte and immediately more fall-like is by dabbing some translucent powder on top!  It’s SO simple and the, you won’t have to worry about going out and buying matte lipsticks if you don’t have any! Also, this prevents the lipstick from getting on your teeth and makes it last longer.

IMG_0927IMG_0930

The next makeup product that I absolutely could NOT live without in Fall is Tarte’s Limited Edition Rainforest After Dark Palette! It has literally everything you could possibly want for your Fall makeup from beautiful gold eyeshadows to gorgeous Fall-y purples and those matte browns, which are a must have.  Also, it’s blush bronzer and highlighter and perfect and it’s so nice to have them all in one place.  It makes getting ready much easier when all the products I need are in the same palette!

Next, staying with the same beauty-product theme are some nail polishes I have been loving!   NYC’s Matte Topcoat can turn any nail into fabulous matte Fall-ness.  A classic red nail is a must-have and I been really enjoying Pacifica’s Red Red Wine when I want to feel really festive.  Lastly, this has been my go-to color for Fall, Essie’s Penny Talk, which is a sparkly gold/silver polish that only needs one coat and tries super quickly! I am obsessed with it, because I get very impatient sometimes, when it comes to my nails, but with this, it only takes me a few minutes and BAM! Nails are done!

I have been obsessed with gold rings for Fall!  Midi rings have also recently become a new love of mine and I just can’t get enough of them!  I purchased these at Charming Charlie’s and they were super inexpensive.  Also, if you were wondering, I got my nails shellacked (Is that how to spell it?… I don’t know, so let’s just call it a gel manicure) at a local nail salon and went for some colors similar to the polishes i just mentioned.

My everyday fall outfit would consist of a lot of burgundy and gold colors and some chunky sweaters and scarves.  My favorite chunky sweater is this tan/cream colored one, from Old Navy, where I also purchased the purple/burgundy shirt, which IS Fall.  I mean just look at it.  It is.  And while I was at old Navy, I also purchased the black, chunky infinity scarf… I love.  I love.  I love.

Of course, I need to wear some shoes, too, so now I shall tell you what shoes you would see me wear literally every day.  They are just perfect.  They’re so versatile, they go with practically anything and they are so cute!  On the far left, are some converse, which were purchased in a grey, slightly green color from Zappos.com.  Also, the next part of shoes which are black, slip-on Vans were purchased from the same website.  The last pair of shoes are some super cute brown leather boots with a buckle on the side, which I got from JC Penney’s last fall.  I’m pretty sure they’ll still have some similar ones if you are looking for any.  🙂

Next, I have been listening to these songs to get me through the cold rain that makes me want to lay in bed all day and not get anything done.  Taylor Swift’s new CD, 1989, is perfection.   (I just might be listening to the CD right now, actually… hehe) I am obsessed with every song, because they make long drives in the car turn into dramatic music videos and dance parties, so I really recommend that you listen to it! AND it comes with some super cute polaroids that have lyrics written on them.  If that doesn’t sell you on it, I don’t know what will. 😉  I also am obsessed with Coldplay’s CD when I just want to listen to some nice, relaxing music.  I love every song!  They are all so beautiful and very calming! Again, nice to listen to in the car while rain is pounding on the windshield.

Last but not least is THE most obvious favorite for Fall… a candle!  I have found the most perfect scent that completely captures Fall!… BBW’s Spiced Pumpkin Cider!  When I feel like really getting into the spirit of cozy Fall-ness, this is what I will light.  I REALLY need the larger size, because the small one isn’t going to last much longer and I might die when it runs out.  I purchased a cute little candle holder along with the candle, which is also super Fall-looking!  I love it!  It immediately makes any candle put into it look fancy!

And with that, my Fall Fav’s have come to an end. 🙂  I hope that you all enjoyed them!  I love you all!  Thank you so much for reading!

#OOTD – My Comfy and Cute Outfit of the Day!

~ Hello again, Lovelies! ~

I went shopping recently and got inspired to put together an outfit that’s perfect for the transition from Summer to Fall! It’s cute, comfy and super affordable!  I will have all of the items and where I got them listed at the end of this post! Enjoy! 🙂

IMG_9475IMG_9472IMG_9469

This outfit is perfect for the beginning of fall, because it looks cute and put together, with or with our the sweater, depending on how warm it is.  Also, it’s SO. COMFY.  It feels like walking around in pajamas!  Another reason it’s perfect for this season is that the sweater isn’t so hot that you would usually need to take it off, because it’s a knitted material that’s really breathable.  This would allow you to wear it in school or other places, so if you wanted to cover your bootay while wearing leggings, you could, without suffocating in the heat of a huge fuzzy sweater. 🙂

Now, I’m going to walk through each piece of this outfit with you guys and show y’all some pictures that I took of them!

 Let’s start with the tank top! I bought this at Forever 21 and I’m in love with it!  It’s a patterned black and white/cream racerback. It is SO. SOFT.  I was super excited when I found this!  It’s cute and comfortable! It goes perfectly alone when it’s hot out and looks AMAZING, when layered with sweaters, so I’l be wearing this all year round. 🙂 Agh, I just love it!

 Overtop of that tank, I wore a beige knit sweater from Aeropostale. Again, cute and comfy!  This is my favorite sweater I’ve ever owned!  I was so excited that I finally had a cute outfit to pair it with!

The pants I wore with this outfit are black leggings, which I purchased from PINK.  Again, they are comfortable and cute, sticking with the theme of everything else in this outfit!

Now, of course, I needed some shoes to wear and I recently purchased some very cute sandals from Target (a.k.a my home away from home).  They are brown leather with pretty gold accents around the ankle, which make them look so fancy! (but don’t get too excited, the gold stuff is just flimsy plastic)  The first time I ever put these on to wear -which was today- one of the straps on one of the sandals broke, which I wasn’t very happy about as they are brand new, but they still work fine and it will be easily fixable.  I guess that’s why they only cost $11! Oh, well. *sighs* I’m still happy to have them. 🙂  It might seem weird that I hung them in a tree for a picture, but hey, hanging things in trees always makes a picture look fancy, so that’s what I did. 😉

Now, onto the accessoriessss!

On my head, I am wearing a bright coral headband, which I purchased from Charming Charlie’s.  I love how it crosses at the top, giving it a little more interest than a regular flat headband! 🙂

IMG_9445

Around my neck, I am wearing one of my absolute favorite necklaces!  I purchased this last weekend, at Charlotte Russe and it was the very last one, so it was obviously meant to be! 🙂
