What I Wore: April 17, 2014



|Sweatshirt-JcPenney (here)|Skirt-J.Crew Factory (same different colors)
|Tights-JcPenney|Shoes- Rialto Brand 
|Necklace-Forever 21 (here)

First up, I'm wearing a sweatshirt. Gasp? Right? But I bet with out knowing you would have never realized it. Hopefully I tricked those who viewed it in person too. I have a feeling I was successful. Nothing about the word sweatshirt is ever professional or probably work appropriate but I do really think that i did it.

And why not? I keep seeing embellished and dazzled up sweatshirts every where. While they're probably not appropriate or comfortable for working out, they are probably pretty comfy to lounge in or dress up properly for work. I'm calling it a success, what do you think?

I'll never support a hoodie at work though. Hoodies are my enemy.

Secondly, I'm having a really great hair day here and I'm pretty proud of that too. I did my hair super fast but the waves were just fabulous today! Not too frizzy, not too curly, just right. Bonus fact--it's second day hair. I just blew your mind, didn't I?

Easter is this weekend and I most likely will not get my Friday ootd up on time (or possibly at all). I will be heading home for a few days of relaxation and festivities. 

Wishing you and your families a very Happy Easter!

X&O,
Amber

What I Wore: April 15, 2014



|Sweater-Old Navy (cute neutral option)|Tank- The Buckle (BKE)
|Pants- Victoria's Secret (same style)
|Shoes-J.Crew Factory (here)|Necklace-groopdealz.com
|Bag-Zara (no longer available)

Yes. I am behind on my OOTD's. And a few days may be skipped. It's a (sorta) hectic week. Anyways, this was my Tuesdays attire. 

Nothing too out of this world, just a little sweater I purchased on Black Friday nearly two years ago. I love this sweater. They were so popular when they first came out. Every place had their own style too--J.Crew, Gap, Banana Republic...you name it, they had it. But how can you not be excited about it. This one was super affordable and I'm crazy about the mint green and the grey dots. Perfect.

Mint green will always be a favorite color of mine to wear and let's be honest, I'm definitely a neutral girl. Give me my grays! 

I'll be posting Thursday outfit soon. Sometimes ootd-ing gets to a girl, ya know.

What I Wore: April 14, 2014



|Shirt-Gap FItted Boyfriend Shirt (here in different colors/prints)
|Dress- Target (similar)|Tights-JcPenney
|Shoes-Nine West (here)|Necklace-jane.com
|Belt-Target

Today was annoying, so annoying...but it went fast. So at least there is one positive to it.

I overslept. But even worse I totally crashed on my couch last night with my hair wrapped up in a Twisty Turban, when I woke up I was still wearing that darn thing AND my hair was still wet. A quick blow dry and an attempt to give myself a beachy wave with some sea salt spray failed. So top knot/sock bun it was.

This shirt is definitely a bit brighter then my normal attire. I purchased it about 2 Thanksgivings/Black Friday's ago when it was on sale. It was on my wishlist for a long time. I do enjoy the color although-- if it were a bit more subdued, I would probably love it more. However, it is a great color for the spring/summer months!

And yes, flower necklace again. What isn't spring about it? Everything is!

Hopefully your Monday was a great one! 

X&O,
Amber

What I Wore: April 11, 2014

Cardigan-Forever 21 (similar color, similar style)|Shirt-The Buckle (super old)
|Jeans-Big Star "Sweet Straight" (similar styles) 
|Scarf-Walmart |Shoes-Madden Girl by Steve Madden (love these!)

Happy Friday! And a fast day it was (well at least for me). Hopefully all went smoothly in your world.

Another casual Friday where I ponder what to wear. Well, I went with this. And I wore leopard yesterday too, so apparently I am in a leopard kick. Of all the animal prints, it's really the only one I support wearing. Although,I do own zebra print pajamas. 

Can you even see my shirts through my hair. My hair controls me now, it is now officially the boss of me. Yet, I'm still way attached to it.  What is wrong with me? 

Wishing you all a splendid weekend. This is where I usually say I'll post something over the weekend and then fail to do so, so I'm not even going to mention it....oh crap, I just did. Well, if I fail at that again--stay tuned for more outfits next week! 

X&O,

What I Wore: April 10, 2014



Cardigan-JcPenney (similar style)|Shirt-Victoria's Secret (old but cute option here)
|Skirt- Victoria's Secret Pink (somewhat similar|Boots-JcPenney (similar here)
|Tights-JcPenney|Purse-Zara (no longer available)

The weekend is (almost) here. Sorta.

I would say it is officially spring here but yes, I wore tights. I thought it really pulled the look together. Don't get me wrong, I love bare legs but tights are great too (especially in the winter, obviously). And I guess I was in a boot mood today, spring or no spring. 

I've had this skirt for ages. I'm not even sure when I bought it, all I remember is purchasing it on sale from Victoria's Secret. It's not showing up in the picture but it is 100% cotton and in my opinion, a great casual skirt. I usually wear it in the summer very dressed down and comfy. I'm pretty sure skirts aren't always a common design from the PINK collection but I do remember seeing a few this year at the start of spring. Oh, and it has pockets, so you know I love it.

I'm not sure what I would call this look but, I like it. 

I don't have a clue what to wear tomorrow. Casual Fridays throw me for a loop sometimes. Hmmmmm.....

X&O,
Amber

What I Wore: April 9, 2014


 Dress-Target (similar)|Shirt-American Eagle (here)
|Belt-Target |Shoes-MIA Gold Gladiator Sandal (super old)
|Necklace-jane.com (Similar at Forever 21)



Hooray for bold necklaces. Am I right?!

And obviously I like them because....this little gem came in the mail today. I had ordered it from GroopDealz about a week and a half ago. I paid around $8.00 for it and that is with shipping!


I love statement necklaces. I want them to stay in style for forever. But just in case they don't, I suggest you check out places that have affordable ones such as Jane and GroopDealz. I can't say enough about their deals and steals!  I've also never had any issues with purchasing from there just an fyi.  But do heed this warning, they're addictive!

Where is your favorite place to find affordable (yet respectable and good quality) jewelry?

Well the hump of our week is almost over! I don't have to go to work until later these next two days, isn't that GREAT! Amber gets to sleep in. Or stay up unreasonably late and read blogs, which shall it be?

X&O,
Amber

What I Wore: April 8, 2014




 Shirt-Lauren Conrad, Kohls (last spring, current collection here)
|Skirt-Forever 21 |Belt-Target
|Shoes-Jessica Simpson Callie 

First of all let me just say that...I really like my outfit today. It's not the first time I've worn it but I always love to wear it. It's one of those looks where I look forward to wearing it and it's definitely "my style."

Speaking of style, Lauren Conrad definitely knows a few things about it, am I right? If you don't know who Lauren "LC" Conrad is, then have you maybe been living under a rock??? Laguna Beach, The Hills, her books, her clothing lines, bedding line too....they're great. The current clothing she has out right is just BEAUTIFUL. All of it is available at Kohl's and I linked it above. It's so girly and feminine, right up my alley. It's young yet still very appropriate for work. The sucky thing for me though is that the closest Kohl's is about an hour and a half away and when I have looked there before, they seemed to have limited products from the LC line. 

The skirt is a Forever 21 classic. I don't normally support skirts from F21 just because I think they run on the shorter side. Which if you are taller, such a moi, it's a bit frustrating. This one I think is just fine. I bought it around 2 years ago (give or take) and it had such an awkward lining in it, it was very rigid and plastic feeling. I had my mom remove it for me (go, mom!) but it did leave the skirt very light, possibly a bit sheerer then a few would like to wear. But it makes it a great wear in summer month. 

And that was my day...or well what I wore. I'll be back tomorrow with another.

Thanks for stopping bye!

Amber
