Stawberry Top

By | Uncategorized | 42 Comments
I was so easily distracted yesterday and didn’t get a thing done. I watched Endless Love twice instead of doing laundry or working out. Then new clothes arrived in the mail so of course I had to try them on. That turned into a mini fashion show that lasted longer than I care to admit. Later I got distracted cooking dinner by eating crackers + hummus and wasn’t hungry for dinner. And when I should have been replying to emails, I was watching YouTube videos. The funny thing is I felt like I had a very productive day. That is until I was headed to bed and realized I hadn’t gotten my post ready for today. And now I’m distracted with being distracted and haven’t even talked about my cute strawberry top. It’s the cutest, right?! Here’s to hoping today is more productive than yesterday.

Eye of the Tiger

By | Uncategorized | 36 Comments

It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rivals…
 You can bet I sang that song pretty much the entire time I wore this top. But now that I have it out of my system, I can continue on with my post. Can we just focus on my jewelry for a bit? Did you notice my fang earrings? How perfect are they with my tiger top? So perfect! And my name necklace from oNeckace (10% off w/code GIFT10)…it’s so if I wander off and get lost, people will know who I am. Kind of like a lost dog. It’s also so my husband’s boss will quit calling me Cassie and so the people at Starbucks will spell my name correctly on my cup. Last but not least, my rings. A set of four fabulous ILY rings that you will have the chance to win (along with another fabulous item that you’ll have to wait to find out) next week on the blog. 
…And as the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watchin’ us all with the eye of the tiger
 Sorry, I couldn’t help but finish singing the chorus.

Money Management Tips For The Fashion Lover

By | Uncategorized | 26 Comments

I think we can all agree that paying bills totally cuts into our clothes shopping budget. When you’re younger you never have to worry about paying bills. All your money can go toward fun stuff like clothes. And can we just recognize how it’s so unfair that our parents no longer give us school clothes shopping money? I mean sure, I’m not technically in school anymore but I drive past a school every once in a while so it’s basically the same thing. Joking aside, spending too much money on things like clothes can have a serious detrimental effect on one’s finances, to the point where people have had to hire financial advisors such as 7Wealth.com.au to help them plan their finances. When you grow up, you suddenly have responsibilities like buying food and paying for electricity and the list goes on, but spending money on clothes is way more fun! Sure you could join the life of crime to support your shopping habits but then you’d end up in jail and have to wear the same outfit everyday! Ugh! Instead, it’s better to learn to manage your money so you can pay the bills and still afford to look stylish. Lucky for me, my dad was in banking for 30 years and my parents taught me a thing or two about finances. Below are some tips I learned from them, as well as some I learned on my own, that have helped me transition into the bill paying part of adulthood while still shopping and not putting myself into debt.
1. Know What’s in Your Closet
 It’s important to know what you already own so you don’t spend money on something you already have. This means keeping your closet organized. I organize my clothing by style and color but you can find any method that works for you.
2. Set a Monthly Shopping Budget
Whether it’s $50/month or $500/month, set your monthly shopping budget and stick to it. Any leftover money from the monthly budget that wasn’t spent can roll over to the following month. And if there is an item that you love but it’s over your monthly budget, you can borrow from next months budget. But if you do that, make sure you don’t overspend the following month.
3. Shop with a Purpose
Have an idea of what you want to buy before you go shopping. There are so many cute items available, and it can be very tempting to buy it all. But then you end up with a closet full of cute clothes that you don’t really want/need and might not wear a lot. To avoid making this mistake, keep a list of items that you find yourself constantly thinking about. Take the list with you when you go shopping to help you stay on track.
4. Shop the Sales
I rarely buy anything full price. Before I make any online purchase, I search for coupon codes to save money. Holidays sales are also a great time to get amazing deals. I saved my money from my May budget until Memorial Day Weekend and was able to get two of the more expensive items on my list for half off!
5. Avoid Store Credit Cards
Don’t give into the temptation! I know they promise you major savings and/or rewards but it usually costs you more in the long run. Sure you save 5% when you first sign up but most people don’t pay it off when the bill comes and end up paying more in interest than the money saved. I have zero store credit cards and plan to keep it that way. Just say no to store credit cards, people!

These tips have helped me get to a better state when it comes to shopping and finances and I hope they help you too.

Grey Jeans, Lace Top, + a Rainbow

By | Uncategorized | 34 Comments

I’ve been keeping a secret from you. I have a pet rainbow. Her name is Randi, Randi the Rainbow. I didn’t notice it until I got home but she totally photo-bombed my pictures. I guess she just really wanted to meet you guys.
 Ok, you caught me. I don’t actually have a pet rainbow. I had a light leak (I think that’s the official photographer term for it) in my camera that created the rainbow look. But I like to think I’m awesome enough to have a rainbow follow me around all day so just let me keep thinking that, ok?

It has been hot here. Like really hot! Like I’m pretty sure my skin would fry if I were in the sun for more than ten minutes. And fried skin is not a good look on anyone, it’s just not. Luckily I have this Mott 50 maxi skirt with 50 UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) to protect my legs from the sun. Stylish clothing that protects me from the sun? That’s this pale girls dream!

I’m not going to lie, I completely copied this outfit from Kendi. When you like an outfit, you copy it. It’s as simple as that. And now I can claim that we are twins.
Tomorrow is mine and the hubby’s 6 year wedding anniversary! I can’t believe we’ve been together for nine years and married for six. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun. We’re going on a little get-a-way this weekend to celebrate. I’ll be back with regularly scheduled posts on Tuesday. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

Cut-off Shorts

By | Uncategorized | 45 Comments
Let’s all give me a little pat on the back today because I made my old jeans into the cute cut-off shorts I’m wearing in today’s post. Those of you that follow me on Instagram might remember that I was worried I would ruin the jeans so I’m very proud of myself for not destroying them completely. For you crafty people out there, this probably doesn’t seem like a very big accomplishment but for a non-crafty person like me, this is a huge feat.  I felt so crafty afterwards. Like I could sew a complete outfit by hand. Then the next day I tried to sew a button back on a shirt and failed miserably at it and they hubby had to take over. I guess I’m still not that crafty afterall. But I’m making progress people.
