$10 Fridays - Mix & Match Bikinis

I just love a fun bikini that you can mix and match with other basic colors in your collection.  Pair any of these with one of the pretty colors in the suit and you've got yourself a fun look for the pool this weekend.  Each piece is under $10.  And PS, the one at the very bottom, the adorable floral print one with ruffles, is under $7 for each piece.  All pieces are available at Target.

Classic Combination

There are some color combinations I just tend to favor more than others.  Brown, tans and olives are a classic for me.  Along with navy and pink.  Sometimes, you just don't mess with the classics.  Sort of like my aviators.... oh how I've missed them.  I thought I had lost these but turns out they were in one of my many purses in my closet.

The Bar Cart

I associate the bar cart with my Mom's soap operas.  They walk into a house, grab the scotch out of the crystal carafe and pour themselves a drink.  Seems so classy.  I love these simple and modern bar carts that seem to be popping up everywhere on design blogs and magazines.  I have a wine cabinet, but not a bar cart.... May have to invest in a simple try and start displaying my best friend, Don Julio.  I'll spruce him up with some fresh flowers and a trinket or two.

Fears and Other Things

If my house was ever burning down, there are few things that I would HAVE to grab.  Besides my dog, wallet (I may need to buy a snack while waiting for the hot Firefighters!) I would also have to grab this top.  It's the one expensive blouse in my closet.  There are few things I splurge on, jeans, shoes and handbags.  The two things I refuse to spend a lot of money on, tops and jewelry.  Not sure why either, it's just how things turned out in my life.

$10 Fridays - Essie Polish

Spring has sprung (at least in Atlanta it has) and if you don't have something pastel in your wardrobe, you are behind the times my friend.  Here's a quick and affordable fix to being on trend this season.  Polish!  Essie makes some great pastels that are perfect for Spring.  Polishes available here.

In Vogue

I think I got the best compliment to date.  Someone told me my outfits are always in Vogue.  I almost broke down into tears... Ok maybe that's a bit dramatic, but I'm still pretty excited that someone is comparing my outfits to those in her most recent vogue magazine.  And I have H&M to thank for that for providing an adorable peplum top straight from the pages of all of my magazines at an affordable price.

Perfection is just as simple as a white button down and your favorite skirt.  And I felt sort of like a Panam flight attendant in the blue blazer...Bad move. 

Sometimes you don't realize how bad an outfit is until you take your photo... It's an unfortunate situation.

Mint Love

If you haven't heard, you must be living under a rock.  Mint is in.  And it's in BIG.  You can find it anywhere and everywhere. Nailpolish, handbags, shoes, clothes, everything!  It's a fun color to wear because it really can act as a neutral when you want it to.  Aren't sure you can pull it off?  Add it to your nails for a pop of interesting and fresh color for Spring.

The Short Suit

It's officially not Spring, it's Summer.  85 degrees, I declare it Summer.

Since it's Summer around these parts, it's only right to break out the shorts.  I have a slight shorts obsession, amongst other obsessions... But none the less, my shorts are my favorite.

Spring Bags

Nordstrom must have a special mailing list exclusively for me because I keep getting their catalogs on a weekly basis. This poses a big problem.  As soon as I receive one, I am under the impression that I have to have everything in it immediately.  I normally don't find too many bags that I love, but this week's edition has a ton of great finds.  And affordable ones as well.  These are all perfect bags for your new Spring look.  Ditch that brown satchel, and say hello to bold color, warm pastels and fun prints

Two - Liebeskind
Four - Cole Haan

The Denim Effect

I can't take full credit for today's title, someone graciously "pinned" my last outfit that looked.. well just like this one.  The denim effect really does casj everything down (slang for casual..).  The denim jacket brings me back to 9th grade, cheerleading practice and trying to find someone to buy us Smirnoff Ice (sorry Mom).  

The denim jacket's back, and I think I'm perfectly okay with it.  This one, which I love since it's not ripped up and shredded like my old one, is from American Eagle and you can find one for yourself here.

Man-Ic Mondays - Brad Goreski

Brad Goreski, Rachel Zoe's former assistant and now independent stylist to the stars, has the most impeccable style.  Bold colors, bowties and perfect tailoring.  His look is fresh, with a classic touch.  Take a hint from the expert and incorporate bright colors to freshen up your look.  Loving this spread he did for Refinery 29. 

Slight Addiction

I never thought I'd have such strong feelings for a denim jacket.  But turns out I'm madly in love.  I think I've worn this damn thing at least 3 times this week.  It's officially time to wash this thing, I think, right?  Where does one draw that line?

I suppose today will just have to be laundry day so I can get back to wearing this jacket ASAP.

Hello Spring!

I wasn't sure if I was taking photos next to a dumpster, or a storage container.... from the looks of the dead banana peel next to me, this may have been a dumpster.

Either way, the weather is gorgeous, and the mosquitos have yet to come out and attack me.  So life is good. Dumpster or no dumpster.

$10 Fridays - The Mustache

It's a fad right now and I don't understand why.  But if you want in, here's the best stuff for under $10.  And my tip when it comes to trends?  Don't splurge!  So this is the perfect way to add that perfect stache to your look. Because when it goes out of style next month, you'll be happy you didn't spend a fortune on it.
