I’m not a sun lover and during the colder weather I normally use L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze self tanning mist for a hint of color, but I try to get a real tan a few times a year and last week I managed to sneak away to the beach for the day.  I’m not as tanned as I’d like to be but it’s definitely an improvement and it looks great with my little white dress, orange blazer and new tan sandals.  🙂

What I’m Wearing:

White Dress c/o Yesstyle

Orange Linen Blazer – $14.99 from Marshall’s

Envelope Clutch c/o Joules

Sandals (also seen here) – $24.99

Necklace c/o meet mark

Belts – $10.99 from Charlotte Russe

Angela & Roi Handbags

I don’t know about you but my handbag is a pretty important part of my outfit, and when I pick one it has to have every detail to fit my needs because I wear it all day long and it’s usually filled to the brim!  I was recently sent the Square Dark Orange Tote by Angela & Roi to review and immediately fell in love with the bag AND the company!  It’s a roomy tote that can easily carry an ipad or books and has separate pockets on the outside (essential for people like me that lose everything). It also has a detachable strap making it not only stylish but super functional.   Angela & Roi offer a wide variety of vegan made handbags with a vintage feel that have a luxurious look without the hefty price tag.  Their classic selection of bags and colors make them closet must-haves that will never go out of style.  I also think it’s brilliant how they incorporate charitable endeavors via color. How does the Donate by Color Mission work?  Different medical issues relate to specific colors. For example, Colon Cancer awareness links traditionally with the color blue. When customers purchase a blue handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Colon Cancer Alliance.  Check out my tote below and for more info visit – www.AngelaRoi.com

Mi Insta Life: 2/15-2/20

This weekend after I celebrated my sons 8th birthday I decided to take a few days off and do what I do best…SHOP! I took my time and hit a bunch of local Tampa boutiques that I love and found a ton of great stuff on sale.  Although I never made it to a mall, I did make my obligatory stops at Ross, Marshalls and of course T.J. Maxx.  My favorite purchases were the gray booties and chambray top seen below that I found for only $5 at T.J. Maxx.  I’ve been looking for this particular worn-out grayish/taupe colored booties for some time now, and I finally found them on sale for only $20!  The built in wedge gives me the height that I always want but still keeps me super comfy.  I can’t wait to wear them with my shorts and skirts this summer (actually this weekend because it’s going to be in the 80’s).  Click here for some outfit ideas.

The Formula: Stripes

The old saying, “if it ain’t broke. don’t fix it,” perfectly describes how I feel about must-have basic pieces in fashion. Trends come and go but basics never go out of style, particularly certain patterns and colors.  To that end I decided to start a series of posts called The Formula to highlight my favorite style “ingredients.”  The most obvious one to start with is stripes and if you follow my posts then it’s obvious by now that I love stripes.  I literally wear the pattern in some shape or form about 3 times a week. Tip: The thinner the stripe the better – keep that in mind when choosing anything with stripes.

Outta My Bag: Motel Rocks Tube Skirt

I’ve had this skirt from Motel Rocks for some time and I’ve always worn it casually with a tank and denim jacket.  This time I decided to dress it up a bit with a burgundy batwing cardigan, which is so lightweight I can wear it year round, and for a pop of color I added a blue bandeau top. Burgundy or shall I say oxblood is my favorite color this season – it gives everything a more luxurious feel. 🙂

What I’m Wearing:

Cotton Batwing Cardigan – $5 at Cotton On

Bandeau Top c/o meet mark

Motel Tube Skirt c/o Motel Rocks

Belt – $15 (last season similar one here) at HM.com

Studded Clutch (also seen here) c/o Yesstyle.com

Shoes $70 at Yesstyle
