ohhh, shiny! {a thrift style thursday post}

Hi friends!
I am so sorry that I’ve been pretty MIA lately. Things have been really busy with WORK WORK WORK, my mom going to NY and CA for job interviews (please wish her luck!!!!), lots of cooking (yay summer grilling), and general life stuff…

Anyway, this week’s TST I just could not miss. I am not one to wear a lot of metallic clothing so I went with OHH SHINY stuff such as my sequined cardigan, my metallic jelly flats, and my blingy necklace.

put a cat on it {thrift style thursday – bags}

I am a firm believer that things are better with cats on them, including handbags. I have many purses/handbags but this one is one of my favorites (for obvious reasons) even though I don’t use it much, mainly because I’m scared it’s going to get dirty.

thirft-style-thursday-bagsThe story behind the bag is funny. My hubby actually tracked it down for me via Craigslist because when I went to Target on the day the Jason Wu for Target collection launched and all the cat bags were gone.

Are you a bag-a-holic too?

I finally have a piece from the Phillip Lim x Target collection!

I hadn’t planned on buying anything but went into Target looking for shampoo for hubby and left with this super cute skirt – and it was on clearance! I loved the color (mustard) and the fun print right away, when I put it on, I really loved the style too 😉

layering a dress

First of all, I just wanted to say…this is my 300th post! wow! I couldn’t have continued this blog without all my sweet bloggy friends and commenters. Thank YOU!

I’ve really embraced the whole layering for warmth (AND style) thing. Here I am, wearing a sleeveless ponte dress over a long-sleeved shirt. My legs were cold though, should have worn tights 🙂

warm weather again!?

The weather here in NC is back to being its temperamental self so we go from chilly to warm and sunny in the mid 70s in the same week. So I took advantage of this and wore a few of my summery dresses that were neglected earlier this year.

I also wore a jacket with my dress so that when the weather warmed up in the afternoon, I could shed a layer easily! And here are my JustFab booties again, they’ve been getting so much wear lately!
