Blue Blouse and Mustard Jeans

I love bright colored denim. I went a little crazy last year and bought tons of colors. I think these mustard colored ones were probably one of the best ones that I purchased. They’re from J.Crew and they have just the right amount of stretch to them.

Also, I am obsessed with these little elephant baubles I got too! I can’t get enough of them right now. I love elephants! They are so cute!

Thirdly I am so excited that I can start wearing my spring clothes. It’s finally warm! You can tell by the snow in the corners of these pictures that I went ahead and bought my spring clothes early. I always do that. I buy my spring clothes early and my fall clothes early and I get so excited to wear them. Now I finally can!

Dark Places

dark_places_lI’m hooked on Gillian Flynn…so she better start writing some more books.

Libby testified against her brother to put him away for life when she was 7 for the murders of her mother and her two sisters; the murders that came to be known as “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.” Now 25 years later, The Kill Club, a society that is obsessed with famous crimes and murders, has convinced Libby that maybe her brother wasn’t after all the murderer that night. At first she hatches a plan that she will re-visit key players from the time period for the club, for a fee in return, but she soon becomes entangled in their stories and isn’t so sure that her testimony of that night was correct.

I could not put this book down. Gillian Flynn is a really dark writer, but she totally sucks you in. I love her. Read this and her other books. You can see my little reviews on Gone Girl and Sharp Objects by clicking their links.

ACM’s 2013

I love country music…but you definitely get some characters from country music, so I like to see what people wear to country music awards.

Carrie Underwood: I think I’m liking this the more and more I look at it, but a lot of people put her on the worst dressed. I think it fits her personality and it’s spring, so why not?Carrie Underwood ACM

Beth Behrs: I really like the dress and the color on her, but I’m not loving the shoes she picked. She should have just gone with a simple tan shoe.Beth Behrs ACM

Kelly Clarkson: not my fav, but not horrible. Kelly Clarkson ACM

Kaley Cuoco: I think the dress is ok, but I’m not a fan of the hair. It would have worked better at the MTV awards.Kaley Cuoco ACM

Ashley Monroe: I think she looks cute. Don’t LOVE the fringe, but overall it’s pretty good.Ashley Monroe

Sheryl Crow: I like this because it’s different and it fits her really well. I give her props for going away from the norm.Sheryl Crow ACM

Faith Hill: It works because she is at a country awards show, but otherwise I don’t think I would like it at all.Faith Hill ACM

Miranda Lambert: Her face is beautiful. I think she looks great. A little bit top heavy in this dress, but she looks fantastic.Miranda Lambert acm

WORSTS

Shania Twain: Did she go back in time to the 90s? Or was she channeling Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman without the dress? This is terrible…Shania Twain ACM

Beth Chapman: The color is bad. I hate this pale pink color for most things in general, but I think this color makes her look bigger than she is. I’m not sure why in the world she thinks her boobs look good in this. Also..is she going to a pageant?Beth Champman ACM

Tobi Lee: I have no idea who this is, but I posted it because this is horrible. At least her shoes match her dress, but I don’t have a lot to say about this…Tobi Lee ACM

RaeLynn: This might be worse…RaeLynn ACM

BESTS

Jewel: I don’t think I’ve seen her look this good in a long time. I love this color on her and her hair is perfect.Jewel ACM

The Band Perry: Her hair is done! (the boys’ is getting better) I love her dress though. Very clean with a little edge.The Band Perry ACM

Jana Kramer: I think she is gorgeous. Her and Taylor (below) are kind of twins, but I like the gold jeweled dresses. It makes her body look amazing.Jana Kramer ACM

Taylor Swift: I love her whole ‘Egyptian’ look…the bangs, the eyeliner, and the dress…reminds me of a modern Cleopatra and I’m diggin’ it. Taylor Swift ACM

Travel in Style with J.Crew and Discounts Galore!

J.Crew is one of my favorite places to shop. I can’t seem to get enough of it lately! I literally find something I want every single time I open an email or walk by the store. I think I’m going to have to ban myself, because it’s really becoming a problem. Well…let’s be honest, it was always a problem, but I need to control it.

BUT…I let myself go a little crazy, because this week their entire store is 25% off (30% for cardmembers)!!! You guys better take advantage of this before it is over, which is on Sunday (4/28)…so you have two more days! Use code: SPRINGBEST and get yourself a new spring wardrobe…because you deserve it 🙂 (oh, and if you have a J.Crew card, use code: CARDSTYLE, and get 30%)

Anyway, they always have their signature ‘preppy’ style, but right now they have a really cute tribal/travel/world type style going on that I’m loving so I thought I would share some of my favorite pieces with you from this trend.

This is a pretty big trend right now everywhere, but here are a couple other stores that have great discounts going on right now featuring this trend.
