Cousin gave me a boat load of clothes recently, and this gem of a dress was in the pile! I wasn't sure it was going to fit, at first, but it fits like a glove! It gives off such a polished vibe, and of course I had to add my favorite necklace to complete the look!
Hand me downs are the best! ;)

Felicia over at FeFe Christine nominated me for the Liebster Award! This is basically an award for new and up and coming blogs, so that they can become known and gain a larger following. I was thrilled to see that she nominated little ol' me!
Here are a few questions to get to know me better!
-Who are your top three favorite bloggers?
I would have to say Lilly from Lilly's Style is my all time favorite blog. I've been following her since before I made my blog. She is such an inspiration and I would actually wear most of the outfits she posts!
The next two I would have to say are Sara from Glitter & Grace, and a new favorite Rachel from La Mariposa.
It was really tough choosing JUST 3.. I have SO many favorites! :)
-What is your favorite aspect of blogging/having a blog?
I love the creativity that it has allowed me to have. I have so many clothes in my closet that are so old and still good, and blogging has allowed me to incorporate them into new outfits, and to try things that I may not have otherwise tried.
-What would your advice be to someone starting a blog?
Be patient! Over night success is not a norm! You have to be consistent and grateful for what you have. I've blogged everyday since I created my blog, and I hope to continue to do so at least for the first year. It's going to be tough especially this coming full cause I'll be working and going to school, but it is something that I hope to be able to say that I did.
-What do you appreciate most in a typical day?
Right now I appreciate time! I was studying all summer and didn't have time to do what I wanted to do. Now that studying is over, I go back to doing what I like (at least for now!)
-What motivates you as a blogger?
Definitely the feedback and comments from my readers! I'm always floored when someone says they bought something because they saw it on me, or that I inspired them to do something! I never thought that would happen, but it's so great!
-What are three must haves that can always be found in your purse?
Lifesaver's Winter Mints, a pair or 2 of sunglasses, and coupons! (always gotta be prepared for a good deal! ;) )
-What is your favorite midnight snack?
I LOVE sugary cereal at night! It's too sweet in the morning, but late at night it just hits the spot... That or a big bowl of fruit (talk about opposite sides of the spectrum!)
-What is one thing on your bucket list/goal list?
A European Vacation! I've never been off the east coast and I've been dying to go to Europe- all over Europe! I think it would be such a fantastic learning experience and it would be fantastic to see other cultures and ways of life!
-What is your current favorite book or latest read?
Right now I'm reading "The Host" by Stephenie Mayer. I've wanted to read it since I saw the movie trailer. I never saw the movie (I'd rather read the book first) and I'm looking forward to seeing it once I finish the book!
