Friday Faves: Electric Inspiration

I've really been feeling the electric vibe here lately. I love these items and I'm especially yearning for that Urban Decay electric palette. Hint hint my birthdays coming up! (hi, family!) Check out all the item details here.

Happy weekend! TGIF!

Jumpsuit Jungle

 

 
jumpsuit: rainbow // sandals: Payless // necklace: gift // clutch: jun lee

This, my little chickens, is my first adventure in one-piece/jumpsuits/play suits land... Whatever you prefer to call them, I used to have a closed mind that onesies are for babies and completely unflattering. I wasn't completely convinced at first, but I've worn it a few times to positive reviews. What fun is personal style if you can't take any chances now and then. I'm excited to dress it up for night out soon with wedges. You can't really tell from the pictures, but it's a linen type material, perfect for continuing in to the summer months. The wide legs were the selling point.

Rompers, however, I'm not completely sold on.

 

Baby steps.

Music Fest Merrymaking

dress: Ross ($12!!!!) // necklace: accessory auctions FB //

booties: barefoot Tess

 

I wore this outfit over the weekend to the annual Memphis in May Beale Street music festival. Every year, we are either battling tornados, rain storms, or a heat wave. Thankfully, this year the weather was perfect. I picked the wrong shoes to wear (as I normally do) but when I was dancing on the banks of the mighty Mississippi listening to Alabama Shakes in the 65 degree breeze... I didn't have a care in the world.

I wish Music Fest was more than just once a year.

Happy hump day!

Hippie Hippie Shake

 

dress: rainbow (old) // necklace, bracelet: gifts // sandals: Payless // sunglasses: target

 

I always forget how comfortable and easy maxi dresses are! I tend to overthink ensembles from time to time, I love to layer, guilty as charged. However, today I was feeling super lazy (and HOT, we are not turning on a/c just yet.... Yikes!) and this tie dyed little number stood out from the rest. A statement dress, easy necklace, comfy shoes and bim bam dressed. Pretty sure i bought this dress for my first Black Crowes concert and i love the memories associated with it! I really need to invest in some more of these babies for the upcoming summer weather. What do you reach for on a lazy day?

 

PS My 80 year old grandmother, who suffers from dementia, took my photos today and it was the most fun for the both of us. :) enjoy your day!

Hola Monday!

 

black pants: h&m // tank top: dots // scarf: F21 // flats: Nine West // cardigan: Lauren by Ralph Lauren // fringe bag: target // ring & bracelet: gifts
 

 

Most weeks there is nothing worse than a Monday. But a Monday that follows an intense weekend music festival and a heartbreaking losing game of your favorite sports team probably takes the cake. I guess Mexican food and margaritas are the consolation prize. My pattern mixing was inspired by Cinco de Mayo festiveness. I think every day is a perfect time to celebrate with a marg or two, but I am always down for a holiday! Hope your weekends were swell!

AdiĆ³s Monday!
