Saturday Steals (a day early!)

This weekend's Saturday Steals isn't a re-creation of my Friday Fancies, but instead about some amazing deals going on over at the J.Crew Factory Online Store! It has quickly become evident that I love almost anything J.Crew, so naturally I headed over to their website this afternoon to see if they had any steals, and they most certainly did! All of their Factory items are marked 30% off right now, and you get to take an additional 30% off with the code SHOPNOW. Plus there is Free Shipping on orders over $100! I literally couldn't put in my order fast enough because there were a number of spring items I had saved in my cart for the perfect sale moment. I scooped up four amazing items for just over $100. I am beyond excited. I will be posting pictures as soon as my goodies arrive. :) So if you love J.Crew as much as I do head to their website now before the sale ends tonight at midnight!! Happy Friday loves!

Friday Fancies #3

Stella McCartney Embroidered Top, Tibi Pleated Maxi Skirt, Pelle Moda Platform Sandals,
Michael Kors Runway Gold Watch, Kate Spade Bangle, Tory Burch Wrap Bracelet
This week's theme of "Let's Fly Away" took me me to far away islands with their cerulean waters, warm sandy beaches, and the sound of Frank Sinatra's voice in the background. I love all of these pieces separately for their capability to be paired with countless things, but I really love how they look put together. I like the effortless, ethereal vibe of this look with its mix of subdued colors, platform sandals, and the always necessary stack of bracelets. Creating this outfit definitely facilitated my dreams of far away places, I hope it does the same for you! :)

Zara's Done It Again

Ladies and gents, Zara has done it again. Their March lookbook, some of which I already saw on their webiste, is brilliant. The florals and pastels are so beautiful, and their print-on-prints and mix of colors will be a constant source of inspiration for me this coming season. If I were a millionaire, I would probably order almost everything from their current Collection, but sadly I am quite the opposite! Hello college girl budget. Maybe one day! I also did a little study on Zara last semester in one of my marketing classes and was impressed by their ingenuity in their business model, which I was pleasantly surprised to learn is highly respected throughout the retail industry. Fun fact of the day for y'all! Sending out good vibes for everyone today. :)

Polyvore Live Show

As much as I should have been more productive academically this morning, I just couldn't help but watch the entire Polyvore fashion show before hitting the books! It was so fun to see some of my favorite bloggers modeling in the show. Kimberly of Eat Sleep Wear, Helena from Brooklyn Blonde, and Alicia from Cheetah is the New Black are all definitely on my daily blog roll and I was most looking forward to watching them strut their stuff. And they didn't disappoint! If you haven't already, you should definitely check out the show here. :) I love the idea of bloggers being models for up and coming designers, props to Polyvore for coming up with the idea! Happy Hump Day everyone!

Stay Tuned

Just a little Valentine-esque number that I am currently loving from J.Crew. The print, the length, the fabric, the colors...I seriously love it all and wish it was mine!
Soooo of course I live in a state known for its beautiful weather, but said state decided to have rainy, frigid weather for Valentine's Day this year! BLAH. As much as I wish I was getting dressed up for a night out with the ones I love, instead I will be bundling up in many layers while going to class and working all day. But it's not all bad! I'm not entirely ready to let go of my winter cozies just yet and I actually adore where I work. Today I am mixing chunky knits with different textures in my outfit topped off with my favorite riding boots. I couldn't snap any pics this morning but I will be sure to upload some later on tonight! I hope you all are enjoying a day full of love and happiness!

Monday (Hopefully) Funday

Here's to me wishing, oh so desperately, that I was at #NYFW! I hope this mecca of fashion is part of my near future. :)

Unfortunately I have a MASSIVE exam tomorrow that has capitalized all of my time this weekend and will be my only focus from the time I wake up until its over! Therefore, no time for outfit posts for me. :( However, I managed to squeeze in some much needed shopping time with some new friends at the beginning of the weekend and I am so excited to share my new finds with you soon! For a little sneak peek, think flowy blouses in classic colors but exciting prints. :) I am so thrilled to have these new pieces in my wardrobe. There is nothing better than knowing the perfect new things are happily waiting in your closet for you. Am i right?! Have y'all (yes, I go to school in the south) found any amazing wardrobe additions lately? Do tell!

Saturday Steals!

(same from yesterday because even fancies can be reasonably priced!)

Here it is! My Valentine's Day look for less. :) I think I will be purchasing these Gap pants in the very near future! I love their silky appearance and the red/orange color. I also love their versatility in that they can be dressed up with a blazer and blouse, but could also be more casual with a striped tee, cardigan, and loafers. Have you ladies purchased any new bottoms lately that you just can't get enough of? If so please share!
