Embroidered Mini Skirt - Splurge VS. Steal

Goodnight Macaroon Embroidered Mini Skirt


Ladies it's Tuesday ........and I had a vacay day yesterday for my son's birthday.  I'm so NOT ready to be back in the office and the fat that it's 72 degrees outside in January is not helping at all.  Thank God I am out of work at 2:00 so I can enjoy some of this gorgeous weather.

Now that I have spring on the brain....Let me share with you one of my sick obsessions. EMBROIDERY! I know I'm not the only one either because it's been all over the fashion world since last year and it's not going anywhere anytime soon!

Now on to the mini-skirt deets! I know this post was titled as a "Splurge Vs. Steal"......but it's actually more of a post on where to get the EXACT skirt for less.  First let me just make a confession.  I own all 3 of these! I know .....I have a problem and I'm OK with that, but I want to share with you a little secret.  You can get all fird any one of these 3 skirts for an amazingly low price.  Remember a few months ago I told you about how many big box retailers just purchase the same items from wholesalers overseas and they really aren't exclusive to their brand?  Well here's a prime example.

GOALS FOR 2017

So I never ...EVER.....stick to resolutions, but I do try to set  goals for myself.  Usually I try to be realistic with them too.  For example.  I curse....Sometimes A LOT.  So last year I said I would curse less because let's be realistic...If I said I would stop cursing altogether I'm setting myself up for complete failure in the first 5 minutes.  Well....I totally crushed that goal...IMO because I definitely don't curse as much as I used too.  I think that's also in part to being a mom and hearing my son use several choice words that convinced me to try to tame my own potty mouth :) Hopefully I will continue to improve in that area in 2017!

2016 was also all over the place with ups and downs but it was the year that I will always remember when I decided to dive head first back into blogging but not as a mom blogger as I used to be.........but as a fashion/style blogger which has always been a passion of mine.  I really decided to go for it and also decided to start our YouTube and growing my social media.....and I haven't looked back. I actually decided in November 2015 to start YouTube but didnt purchase vlog cameras until March of 2016 then started the channel the following month.  So far it's grown little by little but most because of my schedule and not being very consistent with it.  For 2017, I really hope to push myself even further so that so that I can post consistently on both channels we have as well as growing my other social media platforms.  So much so that I may just be able to get myself into a position to leave my current full time job by 2018.  So here are a few of my 2017 goals.....

Winter to Spring Transition with SheIn

Shein Clothing Deals


Don't worry...I'm very well aware we are still in the thick of winter but once the holidays are over....I start planning my spring summer wardrobe.  SheIn is a great site where you can find hundreds of great pieces for all seasons at a great price.

One of my favorite pieces you can transition from winter into spring and even summer is the Maxi Romper.  You have the length of a Maxi Dress but it's open in the front with shorts underneath for a little added sexiness.  What I love about this is that the length paired with some cute OTKs and a leather jacket will keep you warm in the winter and once it's warm enough where you live you can throw on some cute lace up sandals and a night light denim jacket for an adorable spring look!

Hope you all had an amazing New Year! Early in the day we met up with some other YouTubers/Vloggers that live in our area which was super fun because our kids are the same age.....video coming soon!  Then that evening my hubby and I took the kids out to eat at Cheesecake Factory but unfortunately the food was awful and cold.  That was the first time we ever had a bad experience there but we will definitely still go back because we love it so much and I think they were just terribly busy,  Afterwards we had a chill evening at home.  My little guy crashed as soon as we walked in the door and my daughter stayed up to watch the ball drop and she also annihilated me in Pie Face showdown...HA!  All in all is was a great NewYear's spent with the peeps I love!

Now on to my outfit.......ya'll know whites are totally acceptable after Labor Day nowadays and I'm totally a sucker for white and blush......and of course anything ripped!  My blush pink sweater is from Target this year but I also got it in Mint last year.  The pumps are old ....like 5 years old and I want to say they are from Payless but I can't remember so I linked several similar pairs! 

Let's make 2017 an amazing blog year and here's to hitting goals and blowing last year out of the water!

Holiday Style ft. Target & Kate Spade

The good thing about living in the South is that you are free to rock a cute holiday dress without freezing your butt off!  When we lived up near NYC I dreaded the holidays because I am always cold anyway so I really hated freezing in dresses. Now I love the fact that I can wear just about anything on holidays.  Although, this year has been exceptionally warm ...even for Georgia.  Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are supposed to have temps near 70! INSANE! 

I was planning to wear this dress with a cute leather jacket on top but Im sure I wont need a jacket if the forecast is correct.  I snagged this adorable lace dress from Target and it was the perfect find.  I'm super short ....5'1" to be exact so it's really hard to find short dresses that hit above the knee.  This one is a size XS and leaves a good few inches above the knee which I love!  I paired it with my Steve Madden OTKs....which are a dupe of these designer Stuart Weitzman ones and just as cute! 

My clutch is from Kate Spade and was originally around $400 but I got it during one of the 70% sales so you do the math! Because it's so sparkly it's the perfect little bag to take to holiday parties or even on a date night! One of my favorite parts about this outfit is my necklace.....super sparkly and it can dress up any outfit but also works for casual looks too.  The only thing is the stones have a tendency to flip around easily/  I actually found an almost identical one at J.Crew in store not online and I tried it on and it actually lays flat without moving around so I may have to head back to J.Crew to snag that one!
