Back to the Basics

Every closet needs a few basic items. A few of my favorite basic pieces:

Jessica Simpson Shoes, Comaso Flats
Jessica Simpson flats $37.50 at MACY's
I wear flats everyday. Jessica Simpson flats are by far my favorite brand to buy flats from.

Annie faux-wrap dress  $69.99 at Banana Republic
Wrap dresses are just great go-to items.

Perfect khaki pants  at Gap
I love the wide legs of these khaki's at Gap. So cute.

19.90 USD at Zara

I'm always on the hunt for a good, affordable cardigan. I don't think I can have too many of them.

Women's Denim Jackets Regular Price$34.94 at Old Navy
I have had the same 2 denim jackets for years! In fact, I'm wearing one right now.

Women's Seamless Stretch Tanks Regular Price$14.50 at Old Navy
I love a good tank. Layering is so great with tanks.

Favorite scoopneck T  Now $12.50 at Gap

 I love pieces that can be dressed up AND dressed casually.

I Don't Know What To Call This Post

So, this weekend I made my way to Old Navy. I didn't find any clothes, but I bought two pairs of shoes that were on sale!
Online these shoes are 24.99 on sale. I got mine for $17.49

These are hard to see but they are burgundy velvet flats. They ended up being $6.47!!!! I can always use another pair of flats.
Today, after work, I got a color change on my nails. I was tired of them looking so so because of me doing them, so I forked over the $7 bucks and got them done. I love the hot pink. It's me welcoming spring.

The Oscars were last night. I did not watch but a few of my fav looks:

I don't know why, but I really like this dress on January Jones.

Top Of The Morning To Ya

Hats are such great ways to change an outfit. Who doesn't love pulling out a hat on a bad hair day? A few great hat pictures:

I got a pink one of these at Target today! I love the pop of red on all black.
Demi Lovato. I loveeee the long curly hair with a hat!
Jennifer Aniston wearing my favorite kind of hat, the baseball hat.
Beyonce and the newsboy cap.
Mrs. Victoria Beckham. So chic.
Naya Rivera rocking the bandana.
Well, va va voom Sarah Jessica Parker!

This looks like Carmen Electra but it's actually Fergie.

I know these were popular for a bit. I have mixed feelings about these. Pretty sure they'd keep your head warm.

Loved the red hair.

Great summer hat.

These things have a hard time staying on my head!

Love these hats!

Because she's Cher, that's why. :)
Going out to dinner (without a hat)!

Must Haves:

Lurex Stripe Tunic
Lurex Stripe Tunic $39.00 at Arden B.
I'd like some long tops to wear with skinny jeans and leggings. I don't like to wear shorter tops with skinnies. I find it hard to locate tops that are long enough though.

Hair cut:
I need a haircut, like bad. I really should get my highlights redone as well, but don't want to waste the money or my time just sitting there. Love Carrie's layers!

I need a manicure! I will be opting for a color change and not a full manicure though!

Weekend bag:
Large Duffel
Large Duffel
$64.99–$85.00 from Vera Bradley
I need a weekend bag that is not a big piece of luggage and not a small tote bag. Vera Bradley has some fun designs. What I like most is the soft fabric they make their stuff out of. Bad thing? It's not cheap.

Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer, $38 at Sephora
I thought I read somewhere, where purple was good for skin with a yellow undertone. I have more of a yellow undertone than a pink one, so it's worth trying.

Enamel-button cardigan  On sale for $19.99 at Gap
I wear cardigans all the time. I would love to have one in every color. Gap has some great basic pieces.

Sleep - Lavender Vanilla Bath Soak - Aromatherapy - Bath & Body Works
Aromatherapy Bath Soak from Bath and Body Works: $16.00
They also have a stress relief version and a energy verion.

Sperry wedges:
Women's Fairwind Wedge
Sperry $79.99
I'd wear these everyday!

It's Relax Time, Everybody...

It's Wednesday evening and that means it's time to relax! My plans? Well...
 Modern Family is new

Catch up on Real Housewives of Orange County. I'm caught up on Atlanta, so now I must catch up with Vicki and crew. Gretchen has the best hair by the way. It literally looks like this all the time:

Skipping Topics:

I'm thinking I am going to have elephants as a running theme in my living room

$89.95 at Z Gallerie

Would love this elephant lamp shade on my desk.
I saw this on pinterest but I don't know where it came from. Sooo cute!

elephant pillow cover.
Another Pinterest find! I feel like if you can find the right fabric, this would be a pretty easy thing to make. I love the gold coloring
