Floral, polka dots and chambray = my favorite things.  If you are hesitant to try print mixing, adding floral and polka dot accessories to a basic outfit is a good idea. Just look for patterns with a similar color scheme.  For this outfit I chose my coral polka dot scarf to compliment these floral flats and - Ta Da! - I've added more interest to a simple chambray dress.  You can even reverse the prints - polka dot shoes and a floral scarf would work just as well.  

Speaking of floral accessories - it's you last day to enter the Pearl Blossom Boutique Giveaway! Enter below or check out my previous post for more information on this lovely etsy shop!

I hope you all had a nice Easter.  My husband and I had a potluck Easter lunch with some friends and watched one of the X-men movies in preparation for the new one coming out.  We have these superhero movie marathons every time a new one comes out...haha.  

I decided to pair this peach skirt with this tulip back sweater.  I usually never wear it tucked in but I thought I'd try something different.  I tried to keep the whole look pretty simple since this necklace is such a statement.  But I added my champagne Satin Flower from Pearl Blossom Boutique because it matched my skirt so well.  And the good news is you have a chance to win one too! Just enter using Rafflecopter below! 

Happy Monday!

If you have a birthday, anniversary or possible engagement coming up you need to tell your significant other about Anjolee.com! I mean, I would love a diamond eternity ring for my birthday - wouldn't you? Anjolee has been a leading manufacturer of fine jewelry since 1977. They have an amazing collection of wedding and anniversary rings, diamond bracelets, necklaces and earrings.

The great thing is all of the pieces on Anjolee.com can be customized according to preference of metal type, diamond size, diamond quality and size! That way you can get exactly what you want according to your taste and budget. It's really easy to change your preferences and the price automatically updates depending on what you choose. (It was actually kind of fun to play around with the customization calculator and watch the price change...haha). Anjolee also has a 30-Day money back guarantee and free shipping!

Anjolee kindly sent me this pair of stud earrings to sample (in silver and high quality CZ's).  I can only imagine how sparkly the diamond version would be! I wear statement earrings more often but sometimes it's nice to wear classic studs.  And I think these earrings compliment my dot print pants nicely!

I hope you all have a GOOD FRIDAY! Is it really Easter already? Well, I'm looking forward to the long weekend and eating some peanut butter eggs!  My husband has off so hopefully he can help my set up more of the apartment - aka hang pictures and shelves for me ;-).

So yesterday was not the best day...I LOST my Social Security Card and got a parking ticket.  It really stinks because I'm sure I didn't just misplace it. It was in my back pocket one second and then gone. I think it fell on the ground. I just have to hope no one sleazy finds it and steals my identity :-/ And I got the parking ticket when I was looking for my card. Sad day.

But at least I have this cute Satin Flower clip to make me happy! Anna-Rebekah and her sister, Eleah,  recently launched their Etsy shop, Pearl Blossom Boutique.  They create floral fabric jewelry and accessories.  Each flower is unique and made to order.  I absolutely LOVE my Satin Flower Hair Clip in champagne.  It is really well made and can be worn as a hair clip or pin! I love the seed beads in the center and the edging around the petals.  It has an alligator clip for your hair and a pin on the back to easily wear it in your hair or on your shirt.  I also love the way it can be worn on a scarf! Their flower clips come in different styles, sizes and colors so you can be sure to find something to fit your style.  

And the good news is Pearl Blossom Boutique is generous enough to give one of these cute hair clip/pins away to one lucky reader! The winner will get the medium sized Classic Flower in the color of their choice! Pick from Lyons Blue, Aqua Blue, Sunshine Yellow, Mocha, Champagne, Deep Red or Ivory!
