Angie and Lola Ruffle Tote

Look at what just came in the mail! I ordered this a few days ago from Target. For $45. It's not something that I would usually buy. But as my mom and I were looking at Target's website a few days ago, she talked me into it!

I'm really loving this bag. I'm going to have to come up with a cute outfit to go with it. To me, it screams summer. Or even has a SW vibe to it. I can see myself wearing this with a cute summer dress, or even jeans and boots.

Jewelry Inspiration

I recently watched this YouTube video from scalmat. And I'm so inspired to go jewelry shopping. I really like accessories. I worked in a small boutique for years! And we had such an eclectic mix of things. I would spend hours playing with all the jewelry. And honestly, now that I own a boutique of my own, the accessories are still my favorite part of the store!

I really like those owl earrings. Not so much for me. They're a little too big and flashy for me. But for a really good friend. I'm off to go see if I can get my hands on a pair!

Day at the Ranch

We're getting ready to head out to a friend's Ranch for a few days. And one of the nights that we're going to be there, they're going to have a little more dressy of a dinner. So I came up with this look.

I happen to already have this dress. And I really love it! It's so comfy. Cute as heck too! Everyone woman that I know owns at least 1 denim jacket. And living in the SW, well boots and silver and turquoise jewelry are essentials! So I'm all set to go. I even had the cute clutch!

Poolside Fun

On Saturday we went to a pool party at my in-laws' house. It was loads of fun! And a pre-holiday celebration. Let's not forget all the good food. I'm pretty sure, I gained about 10lbs in 1 weekend! But this is what I wore.

It was definitely fun and comfy. And spot on for the holiday weekend. I love how you can take the things you already own, and make fun sets on Polyvore. This is really how I come up with a lot of outfits for myself. It's the online version of my design concept boards I use for my work designs.

A Little Inspiration

The other night, I couldn't sleep. I think it had to do with the fried ice cream Tony and I decided to have after dinner. But I was definitely wide awake at midnight. I have a Polyvore account that I use for work inspiration. But I like to keep it private. You know, I'm trying to work. But I decided to start another. Just for fun. And so I can post on my blog. :)

While I was there playing on Polyvore, I decided to come up with an outfit to wear for the 4th of July. I didn't want to look like a walking flag. But I wanted to feel patriotic. And I really wanted to use what I have in my closet. So I came up with a cute little outfit. But after it published, it looked awful! It has something to do with that particular account's pictures. I don't really know all the logistics of it. But I didn't notice it until I went back last night, wanting to write up a post. So I changed a few things and came up with this look...

It's what I wore yesterday. And I loved it! Except I had the romper from the 1st set. It was so comfy! And I felt very festive yesterday.

It's definitely a lot of fun to go play on Polyvore. I do it a lot when I'm watching sports with Tony. I'm not a big fan of sports. So it's fun to play a "Grown Up" version of paper dolls. Here's my account if you are on Polyvore. Hope you enjoyed this!
