Sunday Splurge

I am terribly unorganized. This item looks like a really great way to keep your earrings neat and orderly. Plus it would look great almost anywhere.

This jewelry display is a repurposed antique printer drawer! It just think it is so clever.

Use Your Own Jeans

This post requires you to use your own jeans. Normally, I prefer to create the full outfit, but sometimes you just have to rely on a piece already in your closet. I liked the pieces I found so much that I didn't want to look for cheaper alternatives.

Blazer: Forever21
Top: Tilly's
Shoes: ModCloth

Sunday Splurge

This week's Splurge is for the Word Nerds! I love Scrabble, and I love these letter pillows. This shop offers pre-set words, or you can choose your own letters for a custom collection.

In Her Natural Habitat

This outfit is from last weekend. Yes, I took this photo with my phone in the restroom of a Mexican restaurant. I figured it was a good idea since I hadn't shown you guys my Sunday Splurge over the knee boots with an outfit of mine. So here's what I put together:

Unfortunately, since the boots were a splurge, the outfit doesn't stay under $100, but it does feature some really inexpensive pieces.
Jacket: Sears, 6 years ago, I have no idea how much I paid for it, but it was likely under $20.
Lace Tank: Charlotte Russe, $10
Black Cami: Kohl's, $6
Jeans: Macy's, $24.99
Necklace: Charlotte Russe, $8.50
Crossbody Bag: MetroPark, GIFT!
Boots: Macy's, I paid $69.00, but look! Now they're marked down to $48.30!

In Her Natural Habitat

In my last OOTD post, I had failed to find a dress for an upcoming beach wedding in Mexico. I had spent nearly three hours shopping for one and came home with a totally different outfit instead. I decided this Saturday to try again. I didn't really have the energy to spend another three hours shopping, but I sucked it up and headed to the mall.

Lo and behold, I found my dress at my first stop, Macy's. I tried on two dresses, one I liked, and one I liked more, but it was a little off in the bra cups. I decided to size up and see how that worked... and whaddya know, it worked!

Here's the dress I found:

It is this XOXO dress, which was $79.00 on sale for 40% off, so I took it home for around $50 after tax. The necklace-thing was just hanging with it and I really wasn't sure what it was. I tied it around my waist, but that looked silly, so I tied it around my neck. I only now confirmed that I did the correct thing when I found the dress online. I'm not sure if I'll wear the necklace-thing for the wedding. I think I'd prefer a long layered gold necklace like this

I still have to figure out what shoes I'll wear. Any suggestions?

(I was going to add another outfit to this post, but I think I'll save it for another day!)

Last Chance!
