Get Yourself an Armadillo

As I write this post, I realize that this necklace is sold out on the Anthropologie website so, I apologize in advance!  But, I do love it!  I think it was called the Armadillo necklace and I can't tell you how well it goes with so many different types of tops!  Specifically the Banded Ripples tee by Bordeaux.  I now own this in the ivory color as well as purple - it has become my go-to top for days when nothing else is coming together.  I highly recommend snatching one up before they are gone, like an armadillo into in his shell.  (Okay, that was bad.)

5th Grade Revival

I think it was somewhere around 5th grade that I got a pair of awesome red overalls (a.smiles for those of you that remember that brand) from my mom for Valentine's Day.  Unfortunately, being in Catholic grade school I could not immediately don them and wear them to school but, those babies were on the minute I walked in the door.  So, when colored denim came back in style this year, I was all about the red.  Here are a pair of Pilcro's from Anthropologie paired with a kinda blazer/shrug/something also from Anthro. 

Summer Lovin'

Growing up we were obsessed with Grease.  I used to dream about wearing black spandex and a leather jacket with blonde hair out to there.  I may not have succeeded on Olivia Newton John's epic outfit but at least I got the blonde part right.  Below you'll see a couple of my fave's from this summer - Splendid tank from the Rack that was a steal, my Old Navy jean jacket that goes with everything, an Old Navy chevron skirt that was the last on the rack, and the amazing Jennifer Aniston knock-off sandals from Steve Madden.  I love bargain shopping skills!

Love Me Some Precious Metals

Wow - I have not been good about updating this blog at all.  So, there's going to be an onslaught of OOTD's!  Here's a fav of mine from Anthro - the Precious Metals cardigan. Scored this on sale and has been worth every single penny...goes with everything!  Paired it with an awesome tank (also Anthro but can't recall the name), some Loft skinnies, and black Nine West wedges.  Easy peasy, go-to, outfit!
