Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Tag Archives: forever 21

It is heating up here in NYC and all I want to wear is light and breezy dresses! Was so excited when this beautiful LWD showed up at my door from Forever 21! Dress it down with flat sandals, or up with colorful heels. This exact one has a waitlist currently, but I found a few others for you that are really cute too!

Headed out for happy hour with the girls last night, still freezing here but decided to brighten things up with this fun blue blazer – I love this color! Added some texture with leather leggings and some sparkle with a statement necklace. Can’t wait to also wear this blazer with white jeans and a printed blouse for spring – it’s a great transition piece and even better, only $25. I’m typically a medium in F21 blazers but took a large in this. It could be a little smaller, but the medium was a little too small. And being able to move your arms is important I think.

Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend! Michael and I headed out to Woodinville Saturday to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. We started the day off by enjoying some of the wineries, and it was a beautiful day to find a patio at one of them!

I wore my printed ankle pants that I picked up at Loft last year and still love, with a cream colored tie front blouse that I managed to get for just $13 at Express. Some great black wedges and the new tote that Michael surprised me with as an anniversary/birthday gift finished the outfit off. My fun yellow bracelet was a purchase from a cute New Mexico shop, Crown Boutique, that is now online – check them out!

We had an amazing dinner at the Herbfarm restaurant and stepped out during dinner to enjoy the gardens where many of the herbs used for the meal are grown. A beautiful night!

Hope your weekend is off to a good start! Mine definitely is. Last night I headed out with my girlfriends to do some karaoke! We went to this place called the Rockbox where you get your own private room, so no waiting through a long line of people waiting to hear your name or listening to songs you don’t like. Such a fun time! Although this morning is a little bit rough as there was a lot of champagne involved…

The outfit I wore was inspired by this picture I found on Pinterest, I loved this gorgeous woman’s pairing of cobalt jeans with a blush blouse and said to myself, “hey, I can do that!”

So here is my version using my blush blouse with gold polka dots that you’ve already seen a number of times before.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Friday night I headed out for drinks with my fabulous fashionista friend’s, Mollie and Jaymee. The perfect excuse to jazz things up!

I picked up this top in Portland at Forever 21, but Mollie said she thought it was Kate Spade! (if only) I absolutely love it! Mine is a Medium if you are wondering about sizing. I decided to add a little edge to the femininity of the blouse by pairing with my faux leather front pants and this pair of gold studded shoes that I picked up on sale. I love the lower heel on these for comfort and they are currently 50% off! (even less than I paid) Do I need them in pink or navy too??

Pop on over to Rich Life in a Budget where I am participating in How I wear My: Green. Everyone looks great!

Is it Friday yet? The week after coming back from vacation always feels so long. I am looking forward to going to see The Music Man at the 5th Ave Theater tonight though! I’ve never seen it live and it was one of my favorite musicals growing up.

Yesterday I headed out to run errands, including picking up a case of champagne from Chateau Ste. Michelle for the wedding shower I am throwing for a friend this weekend – so excited about it!

Sweaters with fun phrases have been all the rage and a big thanks to Forever 21 for helping me participate in this fun trend on the cheap. Picked this adorable sweater up during my Portland shopping spree and I think it is so cute. I love the nautical feel and it is perfect for our cold Seattle spring.

Anyone else loving this trend?
