Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Hey guys! I’ve been having so much fun playing dress up with Olivia and I thought that since it’s been a while since I last checked in that a cool kids clothes would be perfect! When I first found out that I was having a girl, I immediately started shopping for her. Her closet is filled to the brim with TONS of clothes, accessories and shoes. After having five boys, I definitely went a little crazy and bought her too much of everything. When I was given the opportunity to pick a few items out from Sailor Janes and have a kids fashion giveaway I jumped at the chance! Sailor Janes is an online boutique that carries fresh, current and, to be honest, hard to resist clothing, accessories and even toys for girls and boys!

It was hard not to buy Olivia AND Joseph just about every little thing at Sailor Janes, but I did narrow it down to two things I wanted for Olivia that I have been looking for and couldn’t really find anywhere else: a striped tank top onesie that is super soft and has amazing quality black and a white coffee muslin wrap which may or may not be just as much for me as it is for her.

I was debating on buying her a bunch of these fun Lucky Boy Sunday dolls (see below) but I just had to have that muslin wrap and onesie, they’re so so cute!

Win Jennifer Lopez's New Fragrance JLuxe By JLO

There’s nothing I like more than getting new perfume. This week I had one delivered right to my door and the perfume was by the and only Jennifer Lopez! It’s like a early Mothers Day gift for me! Ahhhh – so cool! Anyway, JLuxe by JLo is the latest fragrance from Jennifer Lopez thats inspired by her fierce fashion sense. I got it and immediately sprayed some on and just like all of her other fragrances – I loved it! The layers of warm amber (my favorite), cedar wood and musk mixed with a sweet raspberry scent makes it easy to wear for day or night. The scent lingers on the skin without being overpowering, just how a perfume should be! I hate those perfumes that you spray and by noon it’s as if you sprayed nothing and then when you reapply, it’s too strong. This one is just right!

In honor of Timex anniversary, I’ve teamed up with Times to giveaway one of their retro Timex 80’s watches from their throwback collection! This collection is inspired by the popular 80’s style digital Timex watch but updated with a stainless steel bracelet. I was sent the gold with a red face and I LOVE it! Compared to the original fit that I own, this watch fits the wrist perfectly. It’s big enough to have thats Men’s watch feel without the bulkiness which is one the most important things for me when picking a watch. Another revamped detail is the gold which was originally shiny and now is a fabulous matte gold. You guys will love this!

Starting today you have the chance to win the very same watch I was sent. (see below) You can keep it for yourself or maybe gift it to a friend or loved one who is a watch lover.

My One of a Kind Shopping Style

March 5, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

The Diet Dr Pepper One Of A Kind Style Sweepstakes is on and to help celebrate the kickoff this time I decided to highlight my personal way of shopping.  My love for shopping is like an art form and the way I shop has really defined my one of a kind style. I shop clearance aisles first and when I spot something I like it has to meet a certain criteria – like the ability to be worn at least two different ways and be easily worn for day or night (I have a tendency to “build” outfits piece by piece).  Also, while the new arrivals that are placed right smack in the front of the store may be the easiest choice, it can also leave you looking like everyone else.  Sure, It can be challenging and at times frustrating but it’s what sets my outfits apart from others. Another habit of mine is to mix and match high-end pieces with affordable finds that will get me the most wear. For the most part when I see something on the rack I can envision what I’ll be wearing it with before I even walk out the door…and those are the pieces I wear to death and the pieces that make my style one of a kind.

Just last weekend I went shopping for some spring shoes and I knew I wanted booties.  At first I was looking for a black and brown pair, but then I saw this tan suede pair with a gold platform and they were only $20!  Right away I knew that they’d be perfect to dress up or down so I snagged them right away.  The first outfit I wore them with a pair of mint green skinny jeans, a simple white tee, a boyfriend blazer  and a polka dot scarf.  For my second outfit  I wore the booties with my go-to skirt and a chambray top.  I love the way it gives the black skirt a more laid back look without taking away the dressy part. This particular outfit was under $100 and I’ve worn each piece a ton of different ways.

 

Not bad for a pair of booties that cost only $20!  Check out some of my other day to night looks below.

Striped Dress for Day or Night

Polka Dot Skirt for Day or Night

 

Don’t forget Diet Dr Pepper will be running its One Of A Kind Style Sweepstakes where for three weeks you’ll be able to enter to win thirty stylish prizes.  For more info visit http://drpepper.com/oneofakind/sweeps

Along the way, we make choices, we make mistakes, we get up, and we keep going. And like an amazing work of art, we become one of a kind. At Dr Pepper, we celebrate all that makes us an original, from your unique style to adventurous spirit. To check out more one of a kind stories, watch our films at www.youtube.com/drpeppervideos.
