78° and Sunny

Tank – hand-me-down; Belt – mom’s; Skirt – Target; Flats – Target.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! Christmas is usually a pretty simple day for my family – not even a fancy breakfast or anything (this year, we opted for a nice lunch though!) Tonight I watched This is 40 with some family friends – I want to be just as fabulous as Leslie Mann when I’m her age. I also wanted to share my Christmas Eve really quick – we kept things simple yesterday with a BBQ. I guess that’s what you can do when it looks like this outside:

This outfit is almost a complete switcheroo of what I wore last year – except this year I opted for a red sequined tank and green nails (well and a different black skirt, but I guess I’m predictable like that!). I also wanted to show off my momma’s outfit (and also, puppy):

How chic does she look? I’m not sure where her pants are from, but we bought the sweater and her wedges on Christmas Eve! Both were on sale, and the wedges are actually from the kids’ section at Payless! We have small feet. (Hint: size 7 women’s = size 5 kid’s.)

For some unknown reason, my mom also bought me this Santa headband for the holidays. So I had some fun with that:

Merry Christmas! Thanks for reading, as always 🙂

Styling a Sun Hat

Floral Sun Hat

Sun Hat – Publix; Lace tee – Dorothy Perkins; Shorts – Oasis; Bangles – Payless; Shoes – Sperry’s.

Yes, now I’m buying accessories at Publix (the supermarket for those of you not in the know) and Payless. It happens, ok? And yes, that sun hat, with it’s perfect blue floral print ribbon, is sitting in my closet, begging to be worn. The problem? I just don’t know how to style it, especially if I want to be the centerpiece of my look. My matchy-matchy tendencies don’t help.

If I had my dream closet though? This would be it – cream lace tee tucked into on-trend colored shorts (with a decent in-seam), with olive-colored Sperry’s and a mix of bangles to tie in the preppy and bohemian elements. So summery and comfortable-looking right? Too bad I can guarantee the outfit I’m going to wear to work tomorrow will not look like this.

How would you style a sun hat?

P.P.S. Funny story about Publix today – I was on their website today looking for a picture of this hat I bought (as if it was Target or something.) And for some reason, I decided to look at their job opportunities. That’s when I found my dream job – a social media manager at Publix. Two of my favorite things. Unfortunately, my application was immediately rejected because I don’t meet the minimum requirement – an associates degree. Because I attend a four-year private institution that doesn’t offer such a thing. But it’s okay, Publix – next spring, I’m coming for you. I’ll teach you guys to use Twitter and Pinterest. I’ll even move to Lakeland, FL because that’s how much I love you.

White Hot Heat

So this happened last night:


This is what I wore to work the today:

Jersey – gift; Skirt – Target; Nude Flats – hand-me-down.

Just because I’m not home in Miami anymore (BAD TIMING), it doesn’t mean I can’t rep my team and my favorite player. Dressing for work in a heatwave was an extra challenge, but thankfully we have a lax dress code, so it didn’t take much to class up my jersey.

I don’t have much else to say about the Finals, except YAY! and I wish I was home. But I do have some recommended reading: the NBA Finals Shootaround from Grantland and 23 GIFs to Explain the NBA Finals from Buzzfeed.

Go Heat!
