CRY ME A RIVER.



Hello my little mushrooms! ^_- This is an outfit I wore to a funeral I attended over the weekend. I still don't understand why the lighting made my face look 10 times darker than the rest of me...haha oh well! Here I went with an edgier look, wearing a chunky grey necklace, black dress, black tights, and grey booties. As always make sure and let me know what you think of my outfit in the comment section below!

March Rock-It Edit {Featuring Abbi Jordan}

A: Okay editors, you'll have to bare with me because I'm in the middle of wedding planning and it's taken over my life worse than when me and the sweetheart got hooked on Prison Break on Netflix. (Great show, you must watch it!) 

Moving on, since life for me is a whirlwind of white and all things bridal, I thought I'd just go with it and take this time to talk about the perfect LWD {The Little White Dress}

Nothing says rock my world like a girl that's not afraid to rock stark white - especially with a tan.


My friend Natalie wore one last summer for for a gig and it was one of my favorite looks ever. (Sorry couldn't find a picture of it!) 

You may think I'm nuts. I mean black is basically the bible when it comes to rock n' roll but done right it can not only work, but sizzle.

The most important thing with white (anything) is weight of fabric and fit. It must fit your body type (anything there is a fit for everyone if you look hard enough) because anything amiss is going to stand out. 


I say weight of fabric too because there isn't anything worse than a beautiful white shirt or dress that as soon as you step into the right light - shows the entire world everything you've got. Major buzz kill. Unless your Miley Cyrus,  in which case...nope not even going there.

Pair your white hot number with killer shoes and a few simple (but edgy) accessories and you've got the cool girl look on lock. 


Hope your life isn't has hectic as it is on my end, have have a lovely weekend!

M: Hey guys! I'm totally with Abbi this week - Working lots of overtime and have barely been home so this edit is going to be short, sweet, and to the point! Please forgive us and make sure to expect an awesome edit over on her blog next month! I've decided to go along with Abbi's idea that white truly can be quite edgy contrary to popular belief. 


Like black, using as your base color is you're best bet when trying to make it more edgy and rocker. This example above is perfect - You have your white v neck tee, white blazer with gold accents, and white jeans. 


This is another great example. This dress is edgy with just a touch of feminine and looks lovely against her olive skin tone.


One of my favorite ways to wear white is to add accents of black and gold. I feel like this makes any outfit look more statement as well as more put together.

THE KIDS ARE BACK.



Hey guys! It has officially been far too long since I've done one of these. Hoping to keep up with them from now on. Anyways today I thought I'd show you a casual outfit I wore, with a simple blue sweater, ripped jeans, and Steve Madden heals. Also I recently dyed my hair, definitely a change no? As always make sure and let me know what YOU think of my outfit.

Stay Beautiful,

Dear friends, I hope you enjoy this outfit idea I've created via Polyvore. Make sure and follow me there if you haven't already! For this outfit, I wanted to take a deep toned sweater, make it edgy by adding a pair of ripped jeans, and add a simple black bootie to finish off the look. What do YOU think?

I do apologize that I haven't been posting as frequently lately, school and work have been a bit crazy and if I can't put all of my time and effort into creating a post, I won't post at all. Know that I love you all very much, and look forward to lots of new posts in the near future.

My Fashion Favorites {February 2014}♥

Well friends, it's that time of the month again. And no, not that time. Today I am sharing with you my February Favorites. As always I would love to hear your thoughts so make sure and drop me a comment letting me know what you've been loving this month as well.


This first favorite is a chunky necklace I got from where I work. I love it because it's grey so it really goes with everything and makes any outfit have a little pop of sparkle.


I have been absolutely obsessed with these Madden Girl shoes this month. I find that Steve Madden has some of my favorite shoes in the world. It was shocking to find out that these are the most comfortable heals I own, despite them being so high. (Did the "All Day On Campus" test and it ended quite nicely!) 


Despite what this picture looks like, these jeans are actually a light mint green color. They are by American Rag and I think they add a really cute pop of color. (Anyone else still loving the "Mint Green" trend from last summer? I simply can't get enough of it.)


For those who don't know me, you should probably know that I am one of the biggest rock music junkies in the world. I live and breathe it. One of my all time favorite bands is Def Leppard so when I found this jumper from Target, I just had to have it.


Strangely enough, I bought this infinity skull printed scarf at Walmart. I will try to avoid this store at all costs but I must admit, this is a great piece. 


This last item is one that I bought on a whim the night I was going to see Bon Jovi live in concert. I found this right before we left to go there and wore it that night. I think it's really unique and although I don't find myself wearing it as much as I'd like, I really do love it.
