A Side Pony for Andy

Dress: Ross, old
Necklace: H&M $1
Bangle: Forever 21 $3.80
Wedges: Kohls $20

Since I'm a Bravo addict, my whole DVR list might be because of Andy Cohen. I really liked him on all the Housewives reunion shows, but he's even better on What What Happens Live. I love the mix of random guests! 

So here's a side pony for you! Please bring back Shahs of Sunset and keep all the Housewives drama!

Colorful Leopard

Sweater: Charlotte Russe $5 old
Shirt: Target, free with coupon
Necklace: Forever 21, 2011
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: Michael Kors, Marshalls $50

I'm loving leopard with any color. This is one of my new favorite outfits.

I'm wearing my Michael Kors sandals for the first time. They were a splurge for me back around my birthday. I loved that they are stylin even though it's a lower, wearable heel.
So comfortable for work days!

A Vintage Statement

Dress: Forever 21, old
Necklace: c/o ShopLately
Sandals: Payless $5, old

I ordered this necklace because it looked vintage to me, but I could also see wearing it with boho outfits. This time, I wanted to wear a simple dress to highlight the necklace.
 It's so pretty!

Channeling Audrey

Shirt: Loft; $20  2011
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: Payless 

Channeling Audrey Hepburn for #StyleMeJuly. I didn't want to do the typical little black dress, so I went for stripes and a side pony from a pic I've seen of her. Of course, I couldn't find the pic, but I found these ones instead...she is so pretty :)

Just finished reading "Fifth Ave, 5 am" for #StyleMeSmartly about the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's". I had high hopes for the book and the online book group, but even though I finished it, I found it was just semi-interesting. I do want to borrow the movie again so I can piece together stories from the book and my vague recollection of the movie.

Happy 4th!

Dress: H&M $3
Purse: Zatchels, won on Twitter

Happy 4th of July! Spent the morning along the water with my fave breakfast, a donut and coffee :) The rest of our day may be lunch out, a parade and fireworks. 
Regardless, I'm just happy I'm off for the next 5 days.. 

Linking up to #StyleMeJuly again...

Blank Canvas

Dress: TJMaxx
Necklace: Target, old
Belt: Old Navy
Shoes: Payless

Love dresses that are a blank canvas. I went neutral/ natural this time and I'll probably post more outfits with this dress over time. It's one of my favorite dresses because it's comfortable and has a pattern and sheen that makes it a little more special than the average dress.
