A Green and Gold Anthropologie Outfit

I love when Anthropologie has sales…every now and again you find the perfect item for the best deal. I got this skirt for $40 earlier this year and I have been waiting to wear it forever! Some of you may be thinking $40…that’s still a lot, but those of you that shop at Anthropologie know that that is a great deal! So I was pretty happy about it. I love that it poofs out a little bit and I’m obsessed with the color. Not to mention that it matches perfectly with my favorite little bow pumps that I got this year as well.

One Piece Swimwear

I have been loving one-pieces this year. I don’t usually wear them, but I actually bought some this year because I think they are so much cuter than they used to be. When I would think one-piece I would think of my ugly swim team stuff that was uncomfortable and ugly or total “mom” styles, but now they come in the cutest patterns and styles…there’s vintage 20’s, and cutouts, or a simple sleek black…you can get anything you want now. I think it’s great to have one on hand for those tricky times when you don’t want to be running around in a bikini from front of say your boss?! or maybe a new boyfriend’s conservative family. So for those of you that want more coverage or just want to do something different every now and again you have tons of cute styles to choose from. Here are some of my favorites this year!

The Met Gala 3013

I cannot tell you how much I loved the outfits this year. The theme made it so fun – Punk: Chaos to Couture. Loved it! You’ll be able to tell that I had a really hard time narrowing down the outfits to post, and especially my favorites. I had so many. Of course there were some pretty bad ones, but there were some AMAZING outfits this year. You kind of have to keep in mind the theme for some of them though, because they might seem kind of out there, but they totally fit the night. And some were great dresses, but then I didn’t like them because they were so plain! If you have a party with a theme, why not go all out for it?! After all the Met Gala is a Costume Party. It seemed like everyone who was anyone was there. I would have died to be able to go to something like this. I can’t wait to see if you agree with my picks or not! Anyway, here you go!
Instagram-Pictures-Met-Gala-2013

Jessica Alba: I had to start with someone who barely missed my best dressed because I seriously had to narrow it down. This is fabulous. It just didn’t stand out as much as some of my other favs. I wish you could see her shoes though…they were to die for.jessica alba met gala

Kristen Stewart: I almost put this in my favs too, because there was something about it that I loved because it’s really creative. Kristen Stewart met gala

Jaime King: This is really different for her and I love it.jaime king met gala

Leelee Sobieski: I like the contrast and the sleeves a lot. She looks a lot more polished than usual.leelee sobieski met gala

Ashley Greene: The dress was a little much for me, but I think she looks gorgeous and I like the punk take she did with her hair."PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute Gala

Julianne Hough: Not my fav color on her, but I like the idea of the dress with the theme. Julianne Hough met gala

Nina Dobrev: I really like this in the weirdest way. She looks absolutely gorgeous and it’s a great way to stand out.nina dobrev met gala

Gwyneth Paltrow: She looks beautiful as always and I love the dress, but it doesn’t really fit the theme at all. She stands out of the crowd though.gwyneth paltrow met gala

Alexa Chung: I’m not totally sure on this one. I don’t hate it, but it’s not really my favorite either.Alexa Chung met gala

Kirsten Dunst: I feel like she looks more like a mermaid than punk, but I think the color is really great against her skin.Kirsten Dunst met gala

Lily Aldridge: Again, not totally with the theme, but she looks great.lily aldridge met gala

Gwen Stefani: Gwen is like the queen of punk…Are you kidding me? Remember her pink hair? I loved her. This totally reminds me of 90s Gwen.gwen stefani met gala

Lena Dunham: She looks too pretty (despite the face shes making).lena-dunham-met-ball-2013-costume-institute-gala-red-carpet-fashion-pictures-07-05-2013-jpg_100138

Cameron Diaz: She looks so chic. I love this look.cameron diaz met gala

Dakota Fanning: She’s all grown up and grow wings, but I kinda like it.dakota fanning met gala

Heidi Klum: She looks amazing, but so fancy!heidi_klum_met_gala_2013_costume_institute_met_ball_punk_chaos_to_couture_red_carpet_celebrity_photos_18ogh3r-18ogh4c

Christina+Ricci+Vivienne+Westwood+Met+Gala+2013+1

Ginnifer Goodwin: I was trying to decide if I liked this dress, but I couldn’t get past her hair and that horrible eye makeup. Then I decided that I hated the fade at the bottom too.ginnifer_goodwin_met_gala_18ogil5-18ogin4

Mary Kate Olsen: I think I would like the dress underneath, but she looks horribly old in this picture, and I think she took a fortune teller’s coat and attached her dog to it. Mary-Kate Olsen met gala

Coco Rocha: I usually love this girl, but I hate the bangs, I hate the print, I don’t know what is attached to the top of the dress, and I do not like the boots with it either. I’m sorry girl! coco rocha met gala

Kate Bosworth: Love the print of the dress with the punk elements in the bag, belt, and shoes. Perf!kate bosworth met gala

Tribal Shoes and a Little Bug

I love boyfriend jeans! I found the best pair ever (see the link below!) They aren’t too baggy, but they are so comfy. Gap has some great pairs too. You definitely have to grab a pair for summer. They’re great to just throw on and wear around for the day and then you can switch it up at night by pairing it with a blouse for a little bit of a dressier feel.

Here is kind of my in between day or night look.IMG_0451IMG_0448IMG_0453IMG_0455IMG_0450IMG_0454IMG_0455IMG_0452

Blouse – Victoria’s Secret (similar here); Jeans – Pilcro; Shoes – Report; Hair Clips – Anthropologie; Rings – David Yurman, Lauren Wolf (see her collection here).

I’m obsessed with these cute hair clips from Anthro…look how cute this little guy is.IMG_0457
