Peplum & Purple From Marshall’s

Happiness is walking into a store at the last minute before going out and finding exactly what you’re looking for…and that’s exactly what happened Saturday night.  I frantically walked into Marshall’s looking for a peplum top and not only did I find it, but the details were perfect: The zipper down the back was amazing and the slighty puffed shoulder on the lace three quarter length sleeves was beyond cute. Best of all it was only $19.99!  The peplum top is super flattering and I’m sure I can wear it with a few different outfits.   This time I paired it with a simple purple skirt and Vince Camuto heels that I got at Dillards on sale, my entire outfit (excluding the bag and jewelry) was under $60!  FYI I always carry a tote with me and this particular gold one from meet mark is my current favorite for carrying essentials like flats, makeup etc. for evenings.

 

 

 

 

What I’m Wearing:

Peplum top $19.99 at Marshall’s, skirt $7.99 at Marshall’s, Vince Camuto heels $30 at Dillard’s (sold out similar version here), the always perfect tote $38 c/o meetmark.com, arrow bracelets  from Forever21 (sold out similar one here) and the gurl white bracelet c/o Twisted Silver , sunglasses c/o Stunglasses.com (also seen here)

All About The Accessories

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again…I’m all about accessories (especially pieces that are versatile and good for all seasons!).  From vintage inspirtaional pieces, bangles piled on high, to studded pieces and funky glasses/sunglasses, accessories are the easiest way to add your signature touch to any outfit.

 These studded flats from TJ Maxx have tons of personality and will give any outfit an edgy vibe.

Classic mens button down shirt with a simple, inspirational necklace – love it and I too wear tons of inspirational necklaces (as mentioned here).

The Square One ring from Twisted Silver is my absolute favorite. Made from recycled objects, it’s perfectly “imperfect” with a fabulous vintage feel.

 Love to see a guy with a crisp white tee, funky glasses and a stack of beaded bracelets – effortless style that won’t go out of style!!

 

Bangles…and I mean tons of bangles piled on high….are must for any season 🙂

 Statement necklaces like this one from the Kardashian Kollection are easily transitioned from day to night.

 

A bright clutch will add a pop of stylish color to summer dresses or jeans.

 

One of my favorite trends this season: booties with shorts.  Wear them all year round for a casually cool look.
This belt can easily pass for vintage and it’s so chic.  Pair with a white button down or cinch it around your favorite dress.

 

A boyfriend watch is a no brainer and should be in every girl’s jewelry box.

Bold earring for all seasons!
