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

Ways To Wear Emerald

With St. Patty’s Day just around the corner, and emerald being Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year, I thought it would be great to show some ways to incorporate emerald into your wardrobe. I personally have never been a big fan of greens in my wardrobe, however, I love the tone of emerald if I am ever to start branching out with more green.

If you prefer just a pop of green, go with a scarf on neutrals:

 Maybe try it on your nails:

Or a fun statement necklace:

If you look great in green, or are just looking to brighten up your wardrobe I suggest trying some cute skinny jeans:

Or an emerald shirt or sweater paired with a patterned scarf:

Have fun with it – hoping to see lots of the emerald shade this St. Patty’s Day! I know that’s what I’ll be sportin’! xoxo

Monday Musings

I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend. I’m sure many of you attended holiday parties! I held my annual ladies’ gift exchange and it was a jolly old time as always. The gift I ended up getting was a supercute New York and Company zebra handbag…this is a similar one:

I love it…I think animal prints are forever fashion.

In other news, found out what Pantone’s Color of the Year is for 2013:

Seems like we’re leaning toward jewel tones for Spring. How do you feel about this color? I’m actually not much of a green person…it’s probably the least color I own as far as clothing goes. Though, this emerald is quite striking…I may fancy a few things as I start to {inevitably} see it pop up everywhere. What about interiors? Could you see yourself using this tone in your home?

I don’t know about you, but I feel like Christmas break should be here already. It’s like you get four days off at Thanksgiving and come back to work for three or four weeks and the whole time I’m just in prep for another holiday break from work mode. I have been having a hard time concentrating at work, y’all. Seriously. I’ve got less than two weeks til my mommy makes her visit and I’m super-excited!

Speaking of Christmas, I’ve still got a lot of shopping to do…what about you? Happy Monday, y’all!
