Clothing haul!

Saturday, June 2, 2012

Ah, I haven't blogged in forever. I'm so sorry!
But yesterday was my last day of school! In a backwards fashion I went shopping yesterday. Usually I go shopping before school, or at least whenever there is school afterwards for my to shop, but my sister came home and we always go shopping with her so I guess this is a summer haul.
First up we went to Ross and I found a few really cute things.
I first found a pair of white shorts, but I already wore them and they are in the wash.
The next thing, the picture does it absolutely no justice. It's pretty much one of those sheer tanktops, but this one is navy blue with white polka dots. It has a collar, buttons all the way down, and it ties at the bottom.
 When we were at Ross, my mom actually saw these shorts and made me try it on. It looks a little bit crazy, but this shirt would be a statement piece. It's a zebra racerback with ruffles and black lace. It's a bit crazy for me, but it's cute.
 The last thing I picked up at Ross where these white sandals, which my sister actually also got. Call me crazy, but I don't have any sandals, at all, excluding flip-flops. These are really cute and extremely comfortable.
 Then we went to the mall and we went to Burlington Coat Factory. I feel like it's not as well known as Ross or TJMaxx but it's the same principle. Discounted clothing.
The first shirt is very summery. The stripes are more coral in person, but I think it's very flattering. The vertical strips down the sides break up the normally widening horizontal stripes.
 This next shirt is very lazy, casual, and tent-like. When I tried it on, my sister hated it, but it was only $4 and perfect for this lazy summer days. It's just sheer, white, lacy on the top, and with a high-low hemline.
 The last thing I picked up at Burlington Coat Factory was something I've been looking for for a long time. If you watch Youtube beauty videos you probably have seen the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac in bright colors. It's adorable but I do not have the money to buy one, so I was looking for a cute bright colored-bag that was big enough to carry the basics and cross-body. I wanted it for summer when hanging out with friends, because I remember last summer, I ended up leaving my purse in a store and that is just no fun.
 My sister absolutely loves layering tank tops and we went into every store in the mall looking for some bright tank tops that were lacy. My personal favorite tank tops are from Charlotte Russe so when I saw this bright light green and teal in my size it was pretty exciting. They were on sale for $5.
 The last store at the mall was Rack Room Shoes where I picked up another pair of sandals from the brand xappeal. These are silver with flowers and really cute. They also had them in gold and black. I ended up getting an entire size smaller than usual, because they didn't have half sizes and the eight was just way too big.

Then we went to Kohl's and I picked up three tops. The first one is a very casual teal short with yellow, purple, and navy stripes. This runs small, so try on a size larger.

This next shirt is showing up a little bit mint, but it is actually a true lime green. It is just a big "tent" shirt with a cinched bottom. It has little holes throughout it. I am planning on wearing this with a bright colored tank top (like the bright teal) under this shirt.

 The last thing is one of my favorites. This piece can easily transition from summer to winter. It's pink with purple stripes, outlined in hot pink. It has the "butterfly" sleeves.
So that's my clothing haul! I hope you enjoyed. (:

Clothing and Shoe haul!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I've missed blogging so much and I promise I will be back soon. I decided to take a break of studying and make a post of a few clothing items I've picked up recently.
The first pair of shoes is from Rack Room Shoes. My sister's college graduation is coming up soon and I wanted a new pair of heels. These were on sale for $30 and their really simple and comfortable. I believe these are 3 inches. They have a peep-toe, and I tried to catch a picture showcasing the fact that they have really small holes throughout that create a visual interest without being crazy.

Then I went to Kohl's where the rest of my money was spent. I got these pair of really adorable silver strappy flats. I like these because they are open and spring/summer-like but they don't slap your feet like flip-flops do.
The next thing I got was this casual dress. It's navy blue and lime green with a t-shirt style top, a cinched waist with a braided brown belt, and a short flowy skirt.

Then I got this sunday-style grey skirt for church with some "flowers" on the bottom.

I have been searching for a pair of colored shorts and I absolutely fell in love with these. They are actually much more green in real life. A true bright teal, where as in the picture they just look bright blue.

The last piece of clothing was this shirt I got specifically to tuck into a high-waisted black shirt (which may be my first OOTD post in a few weeks) and it's just a bright blue shirt that looks quite simple. My mom likes to tell me the clothes that look simplest on the hanger look the best on me (that could just be motherly-love talking.)

You guys seeing my color scheme for this spring? The last thing I bought at Kohl's was this pair of earrings. Their gorgeous silver earrings with teal stones. 
The last place I went was Bath and Body Works. I had a $10 off a $30 purchase and all of their signature line was buy 3 get 3 free. I got a shower gel and lotion of the following scents: Black Raspberry Vanilla, Rio Rumberry, and Bali Mango. The BRV shower gel is for me, the lotion for my mom, and one of either the RR or BM sets is for me, the other is for my sister.

I hope you enjoyed and watch out for more posts soon. (:

Spring Things Tag

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Hey! Since I don't have a lot of time to do reviews or tutorials right now, I decided to do a tag. This tag has been going around on Youtube so here goes:

1. What are some things you are looking forward to this season?
I'm really excited for the warmer weather since I hate the cold. I am also really excited for spring training for drill team that starts in a few weeks.

2. What are some nail polishes you reach for during spring?
I actually didn't wear nail polish as often last spring, but this year I really have been loving Sally Hansen's Extreme Wear Nail Color in Coral Reef, which is a gorgeous really bright coral. I also really like Revlon's Minted.

3. What are some fashion and beauty trends you are going to rock?
I'm not huge on trends, but I really love the lace trend for fashion as well as the "Sun-Kissed" cheeks for makeup trends. Bronzer is a definite must for me.

4. Favorite spring accesories?
My favorite spring accesory is a simple pair of pearl earrings. They are so classy and I really love the way the look all year, but especially in spring.

5. Favorite spring scents?
I absolutely love Bath and Body Works Be Enchanted. It's the perfect blend of fruity, floral, and sweet.
Notes according to fragrantica:
Top Notes: citrus, Iced Pomegranate, wildberries, passionfruit.
Heart: honeysuckle, floral frosted bouquet, sugared violet, dewfruit, Asian pear.
Base: vanilla, musk, sandalwood

I tag anybody that wants to do this tag in a blog post or in a video or even in a comment!

You know those sheer nail polishes that never seem to get opaque? I had one nail polish from Ulta in the shade Baby Doll that really couldn't get opaque. I decided to try to layer it over a white and the result is pretty interesting. The pink shade is pretty translucent so it kinda looks like a pink and white duochrome nail polish. This is two coats of Wet and Wild's Wild Shine nail polish in French White crème and then two coats of Ulta's Baby Doll.

Also, I made drill team! Ah, I'm so excited! I still have to finish my state mandated science and history test so regular posts will still have to wait.

Cheap jewelry site?

Friday, April 6, 2012

I was watching some youtube videos and I came across a review for this cheap jewelry website, I don't have money to spend on jewelry right now, but I wanted to share this with you in case you did have some money. It's all really cheap and adorable. There are plenty of reviews on youtube if your interested in looking at the quality of the pieces, but I haven't seen any videos that give bad reviews.
Here are just a few pieces that I thought were really cute.
