Flat Lay Favorites

Happiest of Fridays to you! Hope you have an exciting and/or romantic weekend planned with your loved one. All I know is that I have a lash fill tomorrow and I'm hoping to squeeze in my fave barbecue place, but otherwise, I guess I'll just wait and see what the weekend has in store for me! I thought I would leave you with some of my flat lay favorites. These particular flat lays were created for outfits I actually wore on the blog and took proper photos of, so I thought it would be fun to share the flat lay views of some outfits you've already seen. Flat lays are the most helpful for me when it comes to color and pattern pairing. Hope you get inspired!

Black, white, and blush

Sunnies: TOMS | Earrings: Stella and Dot | Jacket: ExpressScarf: Charming Charlie (c/o) | Bag: Charming Charlie (c/o) | Top: Express | Bottoms: American Eagle (option) | Shoes: Halogen

I felt a little 50's sock hop-ish wearing this scarf around my neck plus this moto jacket, but meh, I liked it anyway. The color combo is really great, and I love how the sweetness of the light pinks are spiced up a bit with the tougher moto jacket and destroyed skinnies.

My favorite accessory + a new look

Sunnies: Tom Ford | Earrings: Premier Designs  | Necklaces: Kendra Scott here (c/o) and here | Ring: Kendra ScottBag: Rebecca Minkoff (shop more colors HERE) | Tee: Amazon (option) | Plaid top: JCrew FactoryBottoms: Gap | Booties: Joie (limited sizes here, option here)

I'm currently wearing this outfit, writing this post, and watching the half time show all at the same time! Oh, and I was just Snapchatting as well. Funny how much we can multi-task, eh? I think I have a crush on Bruno Mars. Or perhaps it's just that I can't hear "Uptown Funk" and not get all excited and start moving to the music. So good!

Hello Monday: Kendra Scott GALentine's Day party

Sunnies: Ray Ban | Necklaces: Kendra Scott (here and here) | Blazer: Express (option) | Bag: Lo&Sons | Top: Frenchi  (option) | Bracelet: Kendra Scott | Ring: Kendra ScottBottoms: American Eagle (option here and here) | Heels: Valentino

I mentioned last week that Jenna and I were hosting a couple of blogger events this weekend. Unfortunately, the Madewell event was canceled. I say "unfortunately" but I have to admit that a part of me was a little relieved - the part of me that had to pick my outfits for both events! Madewell and Kendra Scott have two totally different vibes. I wanted casual layers for Madewell but something more feminine and springy for Kendra Scott, and I really didn't feel like changing in between the events. With Madewell's cancelation, I wish I could say outfit planning was simplified, but I was still at a complete loss.

Friday repeats

A couple weeks ago, we were out for happy hour celebrating a co-worker's 30th birthday. As I was sitting there enjoying my Grey Goose cosmo, another co-worker was checking out my outfit and said, "You never repeat outfits." She's partially right. While I may not completely re-wear an outfit 100% from head to toe, I certainly re-wear individual pieces all the time. I just like to spread the love and mix and match pieces in my closet so to the naked eye, it appears like it's a brand new outfit yet I'm not wearing any new purchases. I decided to start a regular series on the blog called "Friday repeats" and share some of my remixing ideas. Let's get started!

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

One of the things that I was surprised to learn in my blogging career is that many people wear hair extensions. Call me naive, but I had no idea. Yes, this shock is coming from someone who wears lash extensions. I've always been intrigued to try them and my curiosity has just continued growing, but I never have. When Irresistible Me approached me to receive a free set of hair extensions in exchange for an honest review on my blog, I was torn.
