My Outfit ~ The 'Carrie' Dress

Good morning lovelies!  I recently got this tulle skirted dress (the top is a cami style) that I've dubbed the Carrie dress, because it so reminds me of her infamous tulle skirt and tank top look.  I wanted to wear it to work, but not take away from it's over the top-ness, so I paired it with mirrored silver pumps, and a metallic purple sweater.  {More after the jump}

My Outfit ~ Rose, Black, & Gray

Hi lovelies and happy Friday!  Today's look is a bit conservative but major fun.  I wanted to wear this rose hued pleated skirt from Target that I bought months ago but hadn't worn yet.  So I challenged myself to throw something together in my normal 2 minute getting dressed morning haste and came up with this.  I'm kind of loving it, and the vibe is very me.  {More after the jump}

My Outfit ~ My Eclectic Style & Swarovski DIY Giveaway Winner

Hey lovelies!  It's Wednesday... we're halfway there right?  Well today I've got something different for you... it's (gasp!) an outfit post!  Usually I feel that what I throw on in my morning haste (getting myself & the kids fed, lunches packed, dressed and out the door) is definitely not worthy of sharing, and I do hide under my casual work dress code.  But yesterday, I decided to throw on something different, and I loved it and needed to share!  {More after the jump}

Spend or Save... Banana Republic Mixed Pop Stone Necklace

I must confess... I've been in love with this Banana Republic necklace since I first saw it.  And although it is under $100 ($98) and it's now on sale for $76, I still feel it's way too much to pay for a trendy piece.  But I've found a better (read: cheaper) option!  {More after the jump}

My Favorite Things (& Most Recent Purchases!)

Hey lovelies!  While I was on a DIY kick last week, this week I'd like to switch things up and share some of my recent purchases / favorite things with you all. I've been trying to curb spending lately, so I'm only buying things that I truly love and know I will use, all the while not buying expensive (ie, out of my budget) items.  {More after the jump}

DIY ~ 3.1 Phillip Lim Inspired Lips Sweatshirt

Hey lovelies!  Today's DIY is such a fun one, and a bit tedious, but I swear I made it in about an hour, while watching the Patriots game this past Sunday. (Go Pats!)  It's inspired by this rhinestoned 3.1 Phillip Lim beauty, but done with sequins I had on hand.  {How to after the jump}

Hi lovelies!  Today's DIY is inspired by this gorgeous Emporio Armani bracelet.  I was able to make it using items I had on hand, but it can be customized depending on what bracelets and rhinestone trim you have and can find.  I of course, made mine in Gator colors :)  {How to after the jump}

DIY ~ Leopard Print Sweatshirt

Hey lovelies!  Hope your week is off to a good start :)  So in my DIY tease on instagram, I showed 2 fabric markers... and yup!  That's how I spruced up this sweatshirt!  My inspiration came from this Sandro Leopard Sweatshirt, but I immediately knew I could make something just as fabulous for only a small fraction of the price.  {How to after the jump}

DIY ~ Pearl Collective Inspired Spike Pearl Necklace

Happy Monday lovelies!  As I teased on instagram yesterday, I've got 5 DIYs for you all this week!  This first one is inspired by this amazing Pearl Collective necklace.  I love the look of it but wanted to make it a bit dantier using these spike beads I had on hand.  I may make another one with bigger spikes and layer them together!  {How to after the jump}

DIY ~ Sequined Owl Sweater

Hi lovelies!  I showed you my DIY ball chain multi strand bracelet yesterday, and I actually got quite a few emails regarding the owl sweater I'm wearing.  It's actually a very simple DIY, inspired by (obviously) the ever popular (and so many people DIY'd it that I never posted it before) Burberry owl sweater.  You won't believe how easy this is to make!  {More after the jump}

DIY ~ Kate Spade Confetti Inspired Jewelry Plate

Hi lovelies! I know many people make resolutions every year to organize themselves, and while I don't make any resolutions, I do make a yearly "To Do" list and yes, getting organized is on it every. single. year.  One of my biggest problems is corralling my jewelry.  One of these days it will get under better control, but for now I like things where I can see them, otherwise I forget about them.  I wanted a pretty dish that I could put some of my frequently worn pieces on so they're all in one place.  I kept envisioning those pretty Kate Spade Confetti plates and wanted to make one.  {Get the how to after the jump}
