If you are here from Hi Sugarplum!, so glad you stopped by to check out my blog!
It was so sweet of Cassie to send you over here!
And if you’re not familiar with Hi Sugarplum!, you totally should be.
Just look how cute she is!
She has awesome before/after pics of her darling house, some great DIY projects, and she dresses like she stepped right out of a
fashion magazine really cool home interior magazine!
You will LOVE her beautiful blog and you will definitely be inspired!
So, if you’re new to my blog, I typically take outfits that I’ve pinned on Pinterest, and I recreate them with things out of my own closet!
And every Friday, I do a post on What 3 Things I’m Obsessed With!
Along the way there might even be a funny story or two (see below, it’s a good one). 🙂
So, what am I obsessed with right now?
I’m so glad you asked.
1) My Mint Green Necklace
I got this necklace at the J Crew Factory Outlet this summer. Of course they no longer have any in stock (dangit!), but they do have lots of other really cute pieces!
(And I’m not sure how long it’s lasting, but if you enter the code LOVEIT, you can get an extra 30% off items that are already on sale!)
I was able to find some mint green necklaces for you on etsy that are great, and if you are brave enough to buy one, I think you will be amazed at how many colors go well with mint green.
What about this one?
It looks SUPER similar to the J Crew bubble necklaces that are WAY more expensive!
This one is only $16!
This one totally SCREAMS my friend Shay.
Shay – buy this today. Please.
How cute would you be standing in your kitchen, in one of your striped
shirts and your colored skinny jeans, bracelets probably up to your elbows, wearing this necklace, and
whipping up your Salted Caramel Mocha Frappacino bundt cake.
And Cassie – I know this isn’t an exact match for the J Crew version, but it’s only $16….
So what are you thinking about these little beauties?
I certainly hope you are thinking that mama needs a mint green necklace.
I mean, let’s be real.
You’ve probably had a really hard week, and one of these necklaces could be a little treat you give yourself for not losing your cool one of the 74 times you probably wanted to (and would have been totally justified I’m sure) lose your cool.
Yep, you deserve a little positive reinforcement.
Buy one, and don’t even feel bad about it.
2) Brass Earrings
I bought these brass earring at Limited a couple of months ago for 50% off, which made them about $11. I tried finding them on their website, but they no longer have them.
So sad for you, because these earrings are legit.
They are too legit. Too legit to quit.
I don’t know how they always do it, but they have this power to really change the look of an outfit and make me look like I’m trying harder than I really am, which I totally appreciate.
I found some similar ones here.
and if you’re not into big earrings, there is a smaller version here.
3) Okay…so this is totally random…but I couldn’t decide what else I wanted to highlight this week, so I have decided to share a story from my life.
Here goes nothin’….
It’s okay if you are TOTALLY jealous, because you TOTALLY should be.
but I still had a flipping blast.
all with my Target romper and dirty hair.
I’m going to give that a minute for you guys to let that sink in.
in a fedora no less…..
to a mother who trusts me with her child as his therapist.
maybe a little funny.
THANK HEAVENS, the mama was cool with it.
When I texted her this next morning apologizing,
she just blew it off and said she would use it as blackmail material.
SO thankful for that mama and her sense of humor!
So, in review,
I’m obsessed with mint green necklaces, brass filigree earrings, and a story that should mortify me (but instead just makes me laugh and shake my head at myself).
Come back next week for lots of new Pinterest inspired outfits,
and of course check back next Friday for a new list of 3 things I’m Obsessed With!
Thanks again to Cassie at Hi Sugarplum for sending some peeps my way!
I can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve next week. I tell ya, it’s gonna be hard to beat these fabric lined book cases that I am in love with.
And purely FYI…..
LOFT is having 40% off their sale.
LOFT’s sale is on sale.
AND if you buy a top or sweater, you get the 2nd one 50% off.
