Once In A Blue Moon Shopping Moment

You know those very rare times when you go shopping and everything you try on you LOVE?!?! This only happens to me once in a blue moon, and I just recently had one of these glorious moments and had to share! In this post you’ll find a great dress for a spring event (wedding, Easter), a few great dressier tops and everything in between! Plus, SHOPBOP is having their tiered SALE event and most of it is on SALE! Club Monaco can be a bit pricey, so it’s always a bonus to get their high quality at a discount!  Dress- Club Monaco

This dress is the reason I went shopping on this day. I thought it would be perfect to wear to a talk I was giving, so I went to Club Monaco after finding it online. It ended up being too short for me, but if you are shorter than 5′ 8″ and need a dress for a Spring Wedding or Easter, look no further. Pair this dress with some cute navy flats (here, here and here) and these earrings, and you’re done! If you do, please take a picture and send it to me! I will love you forever! I’m wearing a small in this picture.

Sweater- Club Monaco

Have you guys ever seen a cuter collar? I freaked out over this sweater. I immediately sent a picture of it to a friend. It’s been the perfect addition to my wardrobe because it’s been chilly at night lately, and this sweater is the perfect weight! Plus, I can dress it up with a skirt or down with jeans (more on this outfit in Friday’s post). I’m wearing a small.

How cute is this top? I have been having the hardest time finding dressier tops recently, but I found quite a few that I love on this shopping trip! This shirt also comes as a darling lavender dress, which is another great idea for a wedding or Easter. I’m wearing an XS in the picture. I would go up a size so the arms are a little looser.

Here’s another cute, dressier top. It comes in black, too. I love how feminine this top looks. I’m wearing an xs.

I love a top that I can wear for any occasion that is also comfortable. I’ve worn this with my maroon coated denim jeans and my bow shoes. I’ve worn this with black jeans and my bow shoes. I’ve worn my new black Anthro jacket over it to add a bit of warmth and edge. Can you tell I’ve been wearing this top nonstop? I’m wearing an xs.


Sweater- Club Monaco

I really have no use for a sweater in Houston (at least not the last two winters), but we are going skiing for Spring Break, and I can’t pass up a nicely fitting, classic navy sweater. I’ll probably add an oxford or a blue jean shirt under it for extra warmth and to change up the look. I’m wearing an xs.

If you are going somewhere warm for Spring Break, this top would be darling for your vacation. Plus, you’ll be able to wear it once you get home, too. It is super soft and comfortable. You can wear it off your shoulders or how I’m wearing it in the picture. I’m wearing an xs.

I love this top because it defines the waistline without hugging it. It’s a figure flattering top that can be worn to work with pants or a skirt just as easily as it can be worn with jeans. I’m wearing an xs.

I’m wearing these jeans in all the pictures.

Now that’s what I call a once in blue moon shopping moment! Happy shopping!

The Real Reason a Statement Earring is a Necessity


I love a statement earring! I have good memories of going through my mom’s jewelry when I was young, and I also have good memories of watching her try on different earrings to see which one made her outfit. And that’s just it- accessories always make my outfits. But, if you ask me, the best part is that when they are unique enough, they can put a pep in your step or act as an instant ice breaker. I learned this the night I wore big, blue fur ball statement earrings. I had the best time because my earrings served as an instant ice breaker and conversation starter. This might be cheesy to say, but the next time you’re gearing up to go to an event where you might not know anyone or it’s kinda intimidating for any given reason, try wearing a really fun accessory. If nothing else, you’ll feel good and hopefully they’ll serve as a conversation starter. So if you ask me, a statement earring is a necessity! I think I may have just convinced myself to buy at least two new pairs of these statement earrings! Ha! Which one is your favorite?
