Loving this 3 day weekend!

Helloooo. Can't believe it's already Monday!!! But, at least I have today off as well. I'm sure it'll fly by though. I don't  really have plans for today....just going to relax at the apartment- work out, bake chocolate chip cookies, read, watch movies, that sort of thing. But, that's fine by me! 
I did some shopping this weekend. I got a bright blue dress at Express, and a pair of bright coral shorts there, too. I used a gift card I got for Xmas, & still have a little bit of money left on it. :) I bought a Cable & Gauge rainbow print shirt at Macy's, and when I wore it out yesterday I got two compliments on it. It was only $25. A necklace I had ordered from Etsy.com came on Saturday. It's so colorful- I love it!!! It came from China, & took 3 1/2 weeks to get here. It's in the pics I'm going to post with this blog, as is my new blue dress. The dress is simple, but it's such a great shade of bright blue, and I make it more interesting with a belt on it, and my colourful accessories. I love the way Express clothes fit me! Most of them are so flattering on my body shape.


First pictures I'm posting are of some items I loveee in my apartment: 








Here are pics of my new blue dress & new necklace:

Another weekend is here!

Hellooooo. So glad the weekend is here, again. And very glad that Nemo hardly hit us! I ran a couple errands earlier...Marshalls & Target, and managed to not buy a thing at either store ha.I'm prety excited for a couple upcoming things:
Next weekend is a 3 day weekend! Bob & I will be going to Cheesecake Factory (late Valentine's meal), and shopping at either Willowbook Mall or Bridgewater.
3 weeks til we'll be in Las Vegas! It's coming up. It's something to get me through these cold, dreary weeks. 
In the spirit of getting closer to vacationing in a warm place...and the fact that Spring is a month and a half away....I'm going to post some pictures of me in warmer weather clothes. After all, I will have to start packing in a couple weeks! :)






















Outfit #1:
Dress: Express (one of my fav stores) I LOVE this dress. I bought it last May, and am crazy about it. The colour is FAB. It's a bright orangeish shade with a red tone to it. The band is tan. I love the shape of the dress. On the hanger it didn't look that great, but it is SO flattering!
Wedge shoes: Bought at a little shop in Myrtle Beach, SC this past summer. They are the same brand/pattern as my moccassins!! Loveeee
Bracelet: Express- love the shades of orange in it!
Orange ring: Gift from my sis

Hello, whoever may read this! Just starting out...my first blog. I wanted an outlet for my creativity, and am hoping this will be a good way to express myself! 
I think I'd like to focus my posts on fashion- I'll post picture of outfits I wear, and add commentary about them. I may also write about my life in general....or things that inspire me. 
I love clothes, shoes, and jewelry. I shop often, but try to spend as little money as possible, by buying things on sale, and/or using coupons. I shop in stores and online. My favourite stores are: Express, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Francesca's Collections, Target, and Ann Taylor. My favourite websites to shop from are: Modcloth.com and Etsy.com. I love bright colours! The majority of my clothes, shoes, and accessories are bright.
This is the outfit I wore today: 











Pink shirt: Ann Taylor
Orange tank: Express (they have GREAT tank tops! The material is decently thick, and they last a long time.
Jeans: Vera Wang- bought at Kohl's
Moccasins: Modcloth.com (these are my FAV pair of shoes!)
Orange ring: gift from my sister
Necklace: Etsy.com
Bracelet: Forever 21

Pink and orange are my fav colours, and I love pairing them together! The pink shirt is very flattering- empire waist style, with a little side rouching. The jeans are boot cut. (my fav style of jeans) The necklace matches well with the shirt. I have about seven necklaces of this style, in different colour combos. Can't get enough of them! I wear my rainbow mocs as much as possible :) They make me happy, just looking at them!


Well, that's it for now!~
