Shopping is my Cardio

I feel like this post just speaks for itself…I love this shirt so much. Haha, I think it’s hilarious, and it reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw, so what’s not to love? I also got these shoes forever ago from Steve Madden (they’re on sale!!!) and I’m so excited to get to wear them more now since fall is getting here! They’re so fun!

Snow Lumberjack

We had another huge snowstorm last night and all day today. Blah. I’m so over the snow 🙁 You don’t know how sad I get when I wake up to all white. You’d think it would be exciting seeing as I’m from somewhere that never got it when I was growing up. It took me 50 minutes to get to work and normally it takes less than 15. The roads were so bad all day. We literally sat and watched two cars come down the road and smash into a parked car on the side of the road outside of the office windows.

Well, sorry for the rant. Here’s just a little picture of some snow that makes it look a little bit pretty.

Apparently snow gives me the right to dress like a lumberjack. Since I was too lazy to actually take pictures or go outside in the snow (and cold) here are some awkward “selfies” for you. I’ll do better next time. I promise.redred2 2red4

What I Wore: Neon DVF Dress with a Fedora

Today was so nice! It was sunny and hot and didn’t even feel like fall so I got in another summery outfit!

I had been obsessed with this neon DVF dress for so long, and I was so excited when I saw it on sale, so I had to snatch it up! I’ll find some way to wear it this fall and save it for next year. I love the floral prints and I’ve already been able to wear it twice since I got it since it’s been so warm. Love it!

Hope you guys all had a great warm day!

Dress – DVF (no longer available); Hat – Banana Republic; Shoes – DV by Dolce Vita; Watch – Timex; Necklace – Nashelle; Bracelets – baublebar and baublebar.

What I Wore: Hearts on a Skirt and a Fun Braid

I think this is my favorite way to do my hair lately. The braid keeps all of my hair off the front of my hair in a functional, but cute way, and the messy bun keeps things casual so I can wear it anywhere…to the pool, out with friends, or even the office.

I like this outfit because it’s also casual and cute, but it’s dressy enough that I could wear it to church or an office if I have to dress up for the day (my office is pretty casual so I don’t really have to dress up there though).

What I Wore:

Shirt – Urban Outfitters Tee; Skirt – J.Crew; Shoes – Sam Edelman; Earrings – Forever 21; Watch – Timex

I almost think the earrings are my favorite part! They are total Forever 21 cheapies, but they’re clip-ons! And they remind me of some sort of grandma antiques or something. I wish they were real! I still love them anyway.

Super short tutorial! 

Start braid on one side of your head (next to your ear), and go across the front part of your hair in a french braid and pin on one side, if you want. I just pull it back into the pony. Then gather hair into a messy braid and you’re done! Message me on the facebook page or twitter if you have any questions!

XO, Kristin!

Favorites Lately – Already Accumulated

So that past couple weeks have led me to find ways to accumulate a few things…
My friend Jenn thinks I need an intervention (granted I probably do) and if she sees this post, she will probably laugh at me or stage one, but SOME of them were gifts ok, and some of these things were super cheap! Haha. But with the holidays, there was gifting, before and after christmas sales, and of course shopping with my mom in California. (That’s like a once or twice a year experience lately, so Jenn…let me enjoy it!)

My new pair of NY Giants sweats from PINK at Victoria’s Secret. This was a GIFT from my boyfriend. I came home one day from work, the day I got home from California and I had a little package sitting on my doorstep. He is a huge giants and tigers fan, so I’ve been getting an abundance of sports paraphernalia. These are super soft and comfy so I recommend becoming a sports fan and getting yourself some.
(also, notice I got my leopard J.Crew phone cover and my iphone for Christmas! love! best present ever)

Black Lace Necklace
I think it is so cute and for $11 bucks, why not?

Forever 21 Finds – Lots of earrings
One of my resolutions this year is to accessorize more…see my upcoming post. It will explain it a little more. But every single one of these was less than $5…not too bad huh?
I’ve been looking for some cute feather earrings so I just bought a bunch.
And I LOVE the cute little owl creature earrings…they even have little babies with them.
Then the cloth earrings were just different and cute so why not?
I do not feel one bit bad about my earring purchases. So there.

Faux Fur Coat
Yet another Forever 21 steal…pretty good for a cheapy huh?

PINK Bling Yoga Shorts
Another motivator for my resolutions…on sale for the semi-annual sale at Victoria’s Secret

Timex Leopard Print Watch
My little brother got me this for Christmas and I adore it. So simple and prefect.

Banana Republic Sequin Pencil Skirt
Went shopping for this in California. I love it. I wish I had had it to wear to church on Christmas.

My display of nail polishes that I have been collecting over that last couple of weeks…yay!

Sam Edleman Leopard Print Booties
75% off
enough said.

Dogarred Aries Necklace
I wanted this so bad! I think it’s so cute. My friend Aislinn point out that it slightly resembles a uterus, but I’m going to choose to ignore that, because some of the other necklaces resemble worse things 🙂

Anne Klien Lion’s Mane Luggage
Obsessed. Now to purchase the other pieces…my suitcase had a giant hole and a wheel that popped off…imagine how fun that is to drag around an airport or the parking lot. SO…I found this one, and I’m going to get the other pieces and finally have a completely set of luggage. I’m almost 26, I feel it’s time to grow up and have one.
