So Collar-ful!

Do you guys ever see trends and you say to yourself "I'll never wear those!" and then you find yourself heading right for the article you rejected in the first place?! Well, this is exactly what happened to me when I went on a little excursion to Marshall's a bit ago.
 I had made up my mind that I did not like collar blouses, due to the fact that they had the same principle as a turtleneck; the choking neck situation. But then, as I saw this blouse hanging on the rack in all it's blush pink glory, I decided I should not discriminate against it and I should take it to the fitting room and give it a try. So try I did and the deal was done. I was a closet-lover of the collar blouses! Imagine my surprise! I have to admit, that with all the buttons buttoned up all the way to the top, I do look more put-together and a bit more refined, if I do say so myself!

So with that said, I now want more of these babies in different colors and in different prints. UGH! I feel another shopping addiction coming on. This is not good. Have any of you ever had an experience in which you rejected something and then found yourself loving it?! Thoughts and experiences welcome!

Thrifting Ain't Easy

This was my work outfit from last week, I forgot to upload this that day....sorry guys! Anyways, I want to start off this post by saying...I love thrifting! I mean shopping is already good in itself but going someplace to find awesome articles of clothing that no one is probably rocking right now, is even ten times BETTER!

At a thrift store you will be able to find things for a cheap price; things that you would probably find for a lot more money at regular retail stores. Not that that is a problem, but sometimes a girl just wants to save some money and still be able to shop. Ladies, I think you can agree with me on this, right?!

So yes I understand that a lot of people would say that thrifting is horrible because you are buying things that other people have worn, but I mean, it's not like you can't wash them and BAM.... they are clean again! It's just as if, you had worn something that belonged to your good friend and she let's you borrow it. I mean she has worn it and now, so will you!
 I think that people should really re-think this whole concept they have on the whole wearing things from thrift stores, it's really not that bad. So what are your thoughts on thrift stores and wearing clothes from there?

FALL! by jessiki83 featuring high heels

Fall is going to before here even before I finish writing this post. It's hard to believe that we will have to say good-bye to Summer dresses with bare legs, hot summer nights, and all those wonderful things that come with Summer.
But alas, with the arrival of Fall, come the warm fall colors, boots, scarves, and all those things we all love. I mean it's awesome being able to wear boots in the summer, but I prefer to rock them in the colder months. I look forward to joining in on some or all of the Fall Trends this month. I'm especially looking forward to rocking, faux keather pants or leggings, printed pants, wine and green colored clothing, baroque prints, and others.What trends are you guys interested in wearing this season??!!!

Printed Pants are Awesome!

So I just recently fell into the whole printed pants trend, and let me just say...I love it! I love the fact that I can wear prints not only on my tops, but now I can wear them on my bottoms and I couldn't be happier!The good thing about this trend is that it makes it possible to play around with different styles, while also taking a risk.

Take for example these pants I decided to pick up at my local H&M. To me, they look like a cross between a cosmic and splattered paint print. But who knows, they could be something totally different. But what I love about them, is that I can wear them casual like I chose to do in this outfit, or I can dress it up with a blazer and heels, and turn it into a much more dressier ensemble. 

But yeah, so the printed pants trend is going to be big for the 2012 Fall season, so I suggest you guys go and look for some printed pants to rock in the Fall. I have already started, as you guys can already tell but I promise you, I am no way near to being done with purchasing more. I have yet to acquire some in a floral pattern. That will be my next hunt. What are some of the Fall trends that you guys are going to be following this year?! Let me know by leaving me a comment, or feel free to shoot me an email or whatever you guys feel like doing.

OutsideLands Fest 2012 Part 2

These are the last pictures for the Outside Lands festival. Unfortunately, I am feeling out of sorts today and this post would be on the bright side but I guess sometimes we have our ups and other times we have our downs, and for me, this is one of those days. 
I would like to say that this day ended really great. Hence, the last pictures shown in the post.

So I ask you guys to excuse my short post. Once I have a couple days to figure things out in my life, I will be back to posting a bit more. Thanks for keeping up with my little blog, even if I don't always post, I still keep you guys in my thoughts.
