A Polished St. Patrick’s Day

A Polished St, Patty's

Beer, cheer and tacky t-shirts. That’s typically what a St. Patrick’s day looks like no matter where you go. But, if you’d like to wear an outfit this year that you may actually wear again, I’ve come up with a few ideas. Whether you’re going to work, a parade, or out on the town, these looks make you look festive…not foolish.

(P.S. There’s a Celtic necklace that I wore in this recent post if you’re really wanting something authentic. Click to check it out. Great price point by the way!)

Desert Sunset


Happy Hump Day! The weather has been so nice lately, and when it gets warmer, the bohemian chic in me starts to emerge. I love layering necklaces and rings, and this hat just tops it off (pun intended!)
Also, I’ve noticed my St. Patrick’s Day outfit post is receiving a lot of pinning on Pinterest. If you’re looking for something unique to pair with your green outfit – check out that Celtic necklace!
I personally love the trinity knot because you can layer it with other necklaces.
I’ve included the link below. What’s great it the website offers you a description of the different symbol meanings, which I love!

Bundled up

Growing up in Pittsburgh, I remember I was only allowed to wear shorts to school when it was at least 55 degrees out in the morning. Now that I live in Vegas, 55 degrees feels more like 25 and I find myself bundling up. Most people say your “blood gets thin” and that’s why the cold feels colder in the desert. In my opinion, I’ve become a big… old… WUSS!
But, I’m not too upset because I get to put my coats to use.
I got this burgundy sweatshirt from a thrift store for two bucks about 7 years ago and it’s still my favorite.
A way I can dress it up is by simple throwing on a button-down underneath.
I’ve got about three white button-downs in my closet right now, and I still feel like I need more!
I mean, can you really have too many?
Coat: Sheinside
Jeans: similar $40 pair here
Shoes: Nine West (similar here)
Purse: forever21 (old) Also love this satchel version found on Overstock
Hat: American Eagle (old)
Button down: h and m
Sweatshirt: thrifted

PINK PASTEL on a girl who doesn’t like pink

I’m breaking out of my “no pink” rule. I actually love the color on OTHER people. I just feel like it never looks good on me. But hey, people can change right?
To make it work for me I like to pair pastel pink with tougher pieces, like leather pants and edgy jewelry. That way I feel like it’s less Barbie, more ‘sweet girl with a bad side’.
Also, if you haven’t gotten yourself a fur vest I highly recommend it! It’s very easy to layer (blouses, plaid shirts, coats) and keeps you warm without adding a lot of bulk.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 

Vest: h+m (similar style here and on sale!)

Bag: Chanel (gifted)
Top: forever21 (love this high neck version too)
Necklace: Thrifted
