To The Max

October 27, 2010 11:57 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

I must apologize for the lack of posts lately, life just gets a little crazy sometimes!  This maxi skirt is my new favorite go-to comfy item!  It's a little boho with this fringe vest, and clogs are the perfect balance to the silhouette.  I just can't get enough of those clogs!  What do you think about long skirts?  Would you wear this look?

The Short Of It

October 22, 2010 12:55 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

Since it has been raining a bit where I live I have been drawn to my hat collection a lot more frequently.  My hair turns to an awful, frizzy, mess in the rain and I would rather just avoid it altogether!  Not only that, but I am starting to get roots again!  Almost time for another hair appointment!

So what do you think of shorts with tights?  I love it because it enables you to wear shorts when it's cold!  It opens up so many more style options the colder months.  When I first wore shorts, tights and heels I felt a little hoochie (are people still saying that?) but when I asked my husband, he said it looked nice.  He is always my gauge in hoochie-ness!  I can always count on him for the truth!  I don't think he wants his wife parading around in booty shorts!  Heehee.

Grey and green is my new favorite color combination.  My husband actually wore some grey shorts and a green shirt the other day (by my suggestion).  He originally thought it didn't match but I explained to him that grey is a neutral and basically goes with anything!  You would think that being so into fashion, that I would want to style everyone I know!  Believe it or not, I don't normally pick out my husband's clothes!  I just throw in little suggestions here and there!  I tell him "You know sports, but I know fashion!"  To each his own!

How amazing is this purse?  It is Nine West and I got it at Marshall's for $15 because the clasp was broken.  I fixed it!  I love deals like that because a lot of damaged items are fixable!  You just have to make sure that it is worth the discount.  In this case I saved about $15.  Totally worth it!

Just being silly.  Seriously, I look so ridiculous when taking pictures of myself.  Just me...by myself...with a tripod...jumping around.  Ahhh the humiliation.

More silliness...

Jump Around

October 12, 2010 11:57 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Ahhhh...I absolutely love something that is comfortable and chic at the same time.  I do believe that jumpers/rompers are here to stay. If the fit is right, there is nothing easier to wear than a one piece outfit. This one I got at Urban Outfitters on the sale rack for $10 (I'm telling you I AM the queen of bargains!), and the fit is DIVINE! Although I don't normally shop there (the prices are a little more than I like to pay) Urban Outfitters has some extremely well tailored clothing.  Sometimes you definitely get what you pay for! The top of this jumper is a little slouchy and the bottom fits closer to my body, which is exactly the way I want it to fit.  I adore the tapered legs.  Finding the right fit can be tricky.  In my case, since I am small I want to create more of an hourglass figure.  The pockets and drapey fabric on the sides add volume to my hips.  If you don't want to call attention to your hips, you should avoid this sillhouette.  Instead, look for a straight leg that is not cropped.  Jumpers come in all shapes and sizes, so there is one for every body type!  But I'm begging you PLEASE do not wear the denim pant, tight fitting jumpers.  I don't know who started that, but they are not attractive on anyone!  Blah!

I have owned this hat for quite awhile, but have always been a little afraid of it.  I wore it to church once, and felt like the ladies who wear the giant hats and block everyone's view!  The more I wear it though, the less weird I feel!  I guess some things just take some getting used to.  Now I am on the hunt for a big black floppy hat, which will probably scare me too.  The people behind me in church will not be happy.  I'll have to make sure to slouch in my chair.  I apologize in advance. :)

What's In A Name?

October 2, 2010 1:18 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Sometimes I go online and look at photos of celebrity outfits for inspiration.  The other day I was looking at Nicole Ritchie's style and couldn't get it out of my head when I got dressed in the morning.  Hence, the bohemian, casual, kind of hippie outfit I came up with.  I absolutely love her style!  It seems so effortless.  To come up with an outfit that looks like you're not trying too hard, when you ACTUALLY DID try hard, is a task in itself!

This shirt is made by Hang Ten, which is kind of random because I didn't even realize they still made clothes!  I'm kind of oblivious to the whole "beach scene".  I remember when I was in Junior High and this boy would make fun of me for not wearing "name brand" clothes like Hang Ten and Roxy.  LOL!  My mom bought me a Hang Ten shirt that I picked out at Ross, and I thought I was sooo cool!  I don't even think that I liked the shirt, I just wanted to be like the "cool kids"!  What is it about name brands?  Have you ever bought something just because of the label?  I'm so glad I don't care anymore!  Cute is cute no matter the price!

Sea Of Green

September 28, 2010 11:39 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Ok, this is starting to get out of control.  My obsession with army green continues and it is getting ridiculous!  It's everywhere I look in the stores and I cannot refrain from buying every item in this amazing color!  Somebody stop me before I drown in a sea of army green clothes!  Pretty soon I'm going to be dressed in a complete ensemble of army green and look like Oscar the Grouch!  Except with a smile of course!   I loooove these loose shorts.  They were on sale at Charlotte Russe for $12.

I don't normally like pairing two loose items together, but showing a little leg kind of makes it ok for some reason.  This shirt appears to be shapeless, but is actually perfectly nipped and tucked in the right places to create a little silhouette.

I have to say that I am completely smitten with clogs.  They are awesome!

This gold necklace I bought at Burlington Coat Factory for $7.  My favorite bangle bracelets and a cocktail ring from Forever 21 add a little more sparkle...as if it needed it.  I just realized that if I was wearing a floppy hat, rather than a fedora, I would kind of feel J Lo-esque.  LOL!  Maybe it's the shirt...

Sweat Pants and Heels?

September 9, 2010 3:23 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

I am totally in love with this super comfortable, extremely chic, sweat pants and heels trend!  This look has it all; a little bit of sex appeal, the "cool and effortless" factor, and a whole lot of comfort!

From Left: Rag & Bone, Elie Tahari, L.A.M.B.

Here is my version of the trend (please try not to compare me with the models above).  The first time I saw it was actually in an issue of Lucky Magazine (my absolute favorite magazine for style inspiration).  I couldn't wait to find some cute sweat pants and put together my own look.  Today was a perfect day for it too, because wait for it...the temperature was in the low 70's!  A perfect overcast day just in time for this cozy, comfortable outfit!  Beware when you try this at home folks.  You may put your sweats on and want to climb back into bed!  Ha!

On my recent trip up North, my husband and I stopped at a flea market.  Even though he probably didn't want to go, he was a trooper and took me without one complaint!  Love that man of mine!  A flea market is definitely a hit or miss, and as soon as I saw this necklace, I snatched it up!  It is very special to me 1) because my husband bought it for me, 2) it is my first flea market purchase, and 3) I bargained with the lady to lower the price!  Excuse me while I pat myself on the back. :)

On another note, what do you all think of the clog trend?  I quite like it!  Especially when girls wear them with shorts or dresses.  So cute!  I bought these clogs last year at Target on a whim and ONLY because they were $5.  Nobody wanted these lonely little shoes.  They were the rejects at the time...but lucky for me, they came back in style!

I hope you enjoyed my sweat pants/lumberjack/military/clog outfit!  My desire is that it gave you some inspiration on this new trend!  Please send me your ideas of other cute ways to wear sweats!
