St. Patty’s Outfit {The Deets}

So yesterday in my Monday Musings post, I posted a quick, but not too quality pic of my outfit from St. Patty’s Day. I actually got a few compliments on the get-up while out and about that day, so I thought I would share with all of you just what it’s made of.

Dress: TJ Maxx / Boots: Minnetonka Moccassins / Necklace: Bohme Boutique /  Earrings: Target

Some of you may remember this outfit from the Rascal Flatts/The Band Perry concert I went to on Valentine’s Day when I got to meet The Band Perry backstage! This dress was such a great find at TJ Maxx for $12.99 – and now I have some much-needed green in my closet {I am seriously lacking in that department!} And plus, it is fitting with Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year: Emerald.

These earrings were a steal at Target for $7.99. I checked and they are not available online, so I suggest you run to your nearest store and raid their jewelry section…they had tons of great stuff.

The necklace is from Bohme Boutique. I got this when I visited Idaho last summer. They do not have these boutiques on the East Coast…I think so far they are only in California and the Northwestern states. So if you live over there, lucky you! They had a great selection of jewelry.

And I tell you, I have not gotten tired of my Minnetonka Moccassins and I don’t think I ever will. LOVE.

Hope y’all had a great St. Patty’s Day! xoxo

Bohme Boutique

While I was in Idaho earlier this month, I had a chance to stop by the old mall I used to hang out in and see how it’s changed – stores they’ve added {and booted} and just people-watch in general {love that.} Anyway, a SUPERCUTE new store that I’d never seen or heard of before stuck out at me and I fell in love.

Seriously, HOW did I not know about this store?

I immediately asked the girls that worked there where the other locations were {HOPING somewhere near Charleston, SC was on that list} and found out the company started in Utah and currently only has 14 stores {with 12 more opening by the end of 2012}. The stores are pretty much just in the Northwest states…but as fashion-forward as this place is…I have high confidence they’ll be spreading out to the East before too long…the company is only 4 years old and is spreading like wildfire out there in the malls.

Anyway, take a look at some of the goods…what got my attention most was the plentiful use of my favorite colors – teal and coral – so hot right now {and always, for me}.

They also have a badass accessories collection…so many cute earrings, bangles and necklaces…even some that emulate the look of that ever-popular J.Crew Bauble Necklace. I was also swooning over these watches {available in many colors}…which majorly inspired this post.

Are you as in love as I am yet? Oh, and forgot to mention how incredibly affordable everything is! I got this outfit while I was there for a total of just under $70.00 – skirt, tank and necklace. {Wow, right?}

Hubby needs to get better at taking pictures, my legs look so short!

And the fabrics are great…that skirt is so comfy {viscose & a little spandex}, I had to go back and get it in fuschia and black as well. I also got that tank in black. That tank fits better than any other tank I’ve tried. {Kid you not.}

Bohme, PLEASE come to Charleston…you would make bank here, seriously. King Street would be a perfect location for you.

And ladies, until they come to a place near you – you can get some of their stuff online at www.bohme.com

Trash to Treasure: Jewelry Display

A couple months ago, I found a skinny little basic black-framed bulletin board at Goodwill for a couple bucks. It also had a place at the top of it for a 4×6 photo. Not immediately knowing what I was going to use it for, I went ahead and bought it (I apologize for the lack of “before” photo, I could swear I took one and can’t find it!)
It then sat in my garage amongst my other Goodwill finds that I have yet to “treasure”.
I’ve been inspired by a lot of the bulletin-boards-turned-jewelry-organizers I’ve seen on the www lately. I decided that would be the perfect transformation for this little bulletin board find of mine.
First, I had to figure out what I wanted to put in that little 4×6 photo frame. After some thought, I decided a cute quote that would be inspiring in the morning would be the way to go, since I planned on hanging this jewelry organizer in the vanity area I have started making in my closet (more to come on that, by the way!) I will be starting my day there every day – picking out an outfit, putting on makeup and of course, accessorizing with some bling.
I went with this quote by Audrey Hepburn – and got on my computer to make a cute chevron background:
Don’t you agree that is the most perfect quote to start your day with (and so fitting for a dressing area)?!
I then put it in the bulletin board frame:

Super-cute, right? Eventually I want to paint the bulletin part of the board, but for now, this definitely works for me.
Here it is, hung up with my necklaces dangling:

I’ve decided I need to add to my necklace collection…many of my old faves have broken and I haven’t purchased any new in a while.
So what do you think of the jewelry board? Now that they are on display, they won’t be “outta sight, outta mind”…so hopefully you’ll be seeing me with more accessories from now on!
