Orange your glad to see me

Happy Hump Day, everyone! I apologize for the lack of posts lately, I have been hit hard with word deadlines and I took a little mini vacation to go home and see my family and do a little early spring cleaning of our storage unit!  Whew, it feels good to purge!  Below is one of my favorite shirts for Spring and Summer.  It comes in several colors and is under $100! How's that for a perfect addition to your wardrobe?

TGI Favorites {2.3.17}

And just like that, the weekend is here! This week seemed to move quickly for me. Not complaining one bit! Can't wait to get out and enjoy the nice weather and work on a few things coming up in the next few weeks.  xx

**My Mother-in-law gave me this phone case last summer and it's been one of my go-to's ever since. Especially down here.  I can throw it on and go without having to carry around a large bag. It's a necessary investment, y'all! 

**Am I the only one who gets hungry right as it's time for bed? This list of 'healthy eats' before bed that won't mess with our sleep may come in pretty handy for all of us late-night snackers! 

**I'm all about productivity and how to better myself with work and my side projects.  This list of productivity tasks is pretty legit and spot on.  I try to do as many of these a day as possible.  It's a work in progress some days, but trying to stay focused and on task is far less stressful than being all over the place. 

**Curious as to what your personality is or maybe your're significant other? This test can help you figure out if you truly are an extrovert.  Don't worry, it's not lengthy.

Today's post is all about being bold.  This would be a perfect outfit for Valentine's dinner with your significant other, or a girls dinner.  It's perfect styled with heels or if it's still a bit cooler where you are; add some tights and booties and you're good to go.

SUGARFIX by BaubleBar

Surprise post today!  I couldn't let this little jewel (no pun intended) go left unannounced.  There is a new reason to have a terrific Tuesday! xo

Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have heard of a little jewelry line called BaubleBar.  They bring high fashion jewelry to the masses for budget friendly prices.  

Well today, things got a whole lost sweeter.  They launched their even more budget friendly line of jewelry for Target; Sugarfix.  And just like all their other pieces, these do not disappoint.  Below are some of my favorites.  You can check out their whole line here

{mule-ing around}

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Chip and I went to a wine tasting Friday, took it easy Saturday and ran a few errands yesterday.  The weather was sunny but a little chilly for my liking, but I will take it over snow and clouds any day!  I have some fun posts on the horizon this week so I hope you'll stick around!  

Today's post is all about the new or should I say new again trend; the mule and slide.  For someone who used to wear shoes that were 3.5 inches and higher, I have certainly changed my style preference over the years.  And I think it started when I moved to NYC.  Before that, I was driving everywhere and could wear un-walkable shoes as often as I wanted.  When I moved to New York, things were very different.  If you wanted to get anywhere efficiently, you either took the subway or you walked.  And neither are heel friendly.  You got in the habit of storing your heels in your desk drawer to change in to when you arrived at the office.  

Needless to say, my preference started to shift in my shoe preference.  I was leaning more towards wedges, flats or heels that were 2 inches or lower.  Maybe it's me getting older and preferring comfort and practicality over fashion (dare I say that as a fashion degree holder and lover of all things fashion related) But my life has changed a bit and I don't have the need for heels as much as I did before. Now, that doesn't mean I don't pull out a high heel or two every now and then, but for my everyday or go to shoe, I'm choosing ones that are easy living. 

I am loving the mule and slide trend going on right now.  I wore mules when I was in Junior High and High school, so I am glad to see the trend return as they were one of my favorite styles.  But the slide is slowly becoming a closet favorite.  I ordered these and LOVE them.  I just love being able to slide into a pair of shoes and go.  My days are spent trying to balance several spinning plates at once, so I can just slip these on and go do what needs to be done and not have to worry about lacing, tying or buckling.  Life Hack 100%

Below are some of my favorite mule and slide options that I think would be great additions to your wardrobe.  Not only are they practical and functional, they are stylish too! The prefect trifecta!  xx
