Wedding Guest Outfit

This Saturday I will be attending a wedding as a guest.  This is the first time in about 4 years that I’ve been a guest instead of in the wedding party.  So, I get to have the fun of actually picking out what I want to wear and how I want to do my hair!  But, like normally I’ve decided to wait until now, 3 days before, to figure out what I’m going to wear!  This outfit is something that would be fun to wear to the wedding but would probably wouldn’t work since its going to be about 50 degrees.  But that really doesn’t matter much, since the last wedding I stood up in was on New Years Day, there was snow, it was 20 degrees out and we were wearing this dress (but in purple) outside taking pictures for about an hour. I was freezing!

On to the outfit!

Hair – I don’t do my hair… at all, so a wedding is a great time for me to splurge and pay to get my hair done.  Hopefully it will look a little like this, but with extensions because my hair is above my shoulders.
Dress – So freakn’ Cute! and it looks comfy but still dressy!
And because I love to go overboard on my fashion boards,  Some ideas of things to take for the night stay after the wedding, plus day after outfit idea

Ok, I went a little overboard and now I want all of these things from Forever 21!

Outfit of the week – New Work Dress

I have to admit I’m a little nervous with this post because instead of a fashion board, it’s an outfit that I’m wearing.

The dress is comfy, fits great, and looks professional enough that I can wear it to work…. Once the weather warms up and stays above 35 for more than 2 days.

I was wondering if my husband would ever take the picture.

Pepper and meNow that his picture is being taken, he doesn’t look so happy.

The bracelets I have on are from Pura Vida, I wear these 2 whenever my brother is deployed.  The are very durable, I’ve had them on this time about 3 months straight.

Maybe I’ll do more outfits instead of fashion boards, if it gets warm out.

Outfit of the Week – Versatile Outfit for my Sister-in-law

For this weeks outfit I wanted to create something for my sister-in-law.  I was trying to figure out an outfit with the colors she likes and pieces that can be fashioned with clothing she already has.  Plus, I wanted find some pieces that she could wear together as an outfit for when my brother comes home from deployment.

So here are the clothing pieces I came up with.  I might have gone a little over board with the jewelry/accessories but you can never go wrong with having plenty of options for icing on your outfit!

Outfit of the Week – Airport Travel

I haven’t traveled via airplane in a number of years, mostly because of cost.  But I keep dreaming of that day that I’ll go on a trip to some place fabulous and arrive looking refreshed and ready to enjoy the vacation.  Oh to dream…

Probably need a number of other things in the carry on bag like an eye mask, head phones, a snack, a head jacket splitter to share your music or movie with your traveling partner.

Have you traveled any where lately?  Where to and what did you bring with?

Outfit of the Week – An Evening Ball

After watching the Oscars I thought ‘What would I wear if I was at the Oscars?’ There were a number of lovely dresses on the red carpet and some not so great ones. I personally feel that if the blush tone of your dress almost matches your skin, it’s the wrong color to go with. Wear something bold or unique. With that being said I think that Charlize Theron’s dress and jewelry was amazing

Here is what I would wear, on a budget sort of.
