Stylish Sundays: Angela Chase

I am a big fan of the 90′s. I turned 4 in 1990, so everything I really remember about my childhood happened in the 90′s. My So Called Life and Are You Afraid Of The Dark were my absolute favorite shows, Clueless is still my favorite movie and Placebo is still my favorite band. So of course I’m a big fan of the 90′s Grunge revival that’s happening right now.

This outfit was a complete accident. I hang my long sleeved shirts and button downs on the same rail as my dresses and I completely forgot about this flannel. So I was flipping through my closet and this dress and top were right next to each other.

Since  this tweet conversation happened after I bought this dress,

Zoya and Sephora Formula X Haul

It’s been a while since I bought any new nail stuff, but a couple weeks ago Zoya was having their 3 free sale, where you only pay shipping. At the same time that was going on I ran out of both my top coat and base coats so I decided to try something new.

From Sephora I bought the Formula X top coat and base coat

and I also picked up A little Sexy because it was on sale for $5

admittedly I should have just paid $3 more and gotten their system, but hindsight is 20/20. Next time though.

Then from Zoya I picked up 3 gorgeous colors;

I think these are from the Tickled and Bubbly collection

I picked out Muse:

Binx:

and Wendy:

Binx is probably my favorite, because of the name. Hocus Pocus is probably one of my favorite movies, and Thackeray Binx is my absolute favorite Character.  Howl was very close to being named Thackeray, but Howl suited him better. I picked out Wendy because melon colors get me everytime, and it looked similar to one that Fleur had recently had in her favorites. And Muse got picked because as my husband says ” They’re a really good band”. I wasn’t kidding when I said I sometimes buy and wear polishes because of their names.

I forgot how much I loved Zoya nail polishes and am really looking forward to buying some more of them in the near future.

 

 

Stylish Sundays: Business Floral

I was getting dressed the other day and realized there’s been a lot of jeans and tee shirts lately, and my dressier, cuter clothes were getting neglected.

Before I show you what makeup I wore, I’d like to point out that both Howl and I got groomed:

Howl goes to Pawsitively Purrfect in Florence Kentucky, which we absolutely adore. Honestly, they do the best job on Howl’s fur, and he always looks so perfect when we pick him up. And I see Christie at Tonya’s Image and Wellness Salon. I adore Christie, and she’s probably the only hair dresser I’ve ever been to multiple times. This time we took about two more inches off for a style that’s a bit closer to how Taylor Swift has her hair currently. I’m completely in love with it, for right now, but I don’t think I’ll be keeping it this short forever. If you’re in the Crestview, Kentucky Area and you need a haircut or color, then definitely go see her.

Fall Keds

So you know I’m crazy obsessed with my Coral Keds that I got for spring last year. I can’t count all the times I wore them this spring and summer. You can see some of the ways I styled them here, here, here, and uh, here. So it would only make sense that I absolutely needed a pair for fall. So when I saw that they had Keds on sale, I picked up a pair in Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale.

I mentioned in another post that I wasn’t sure what color to get, and I was really torn between, Black,Grey, Burgundy, Red and Navy. But I ended up settling on Grey. It’s kinda my favorite color, and it’s definitely one of my most worn colors. And it’s a neutral that will go with anything, but especially Navy and Black. Which is good because sometimes I have trouble matching shoes to Navy, because I don’t always want to wear brown with it. Especially since my only brown shoes are my boots or my sperry’s.

and then preceded to take far to many pictures of them.

I’m absolutely obsessed with these shoes. The Grey looks way better in person than it did online and I will be wearing these to obsessively this fall.

They came with both yellow and white laces, and I decided that while the yellow laces are striking in the photos, and super cute because the Keds label on the tongue and the insoles are the same shade of yellow…

Fashion and Happy Things!   Fall Keds

I’m still probably going to use the white laces most of the time. They just look so crisp with the white laces. Once again there was no break in time needed and I’m wearing them for the second time right now and they’re so comfortable. I still want them in black, and in red, and all of the other colors, and I really want a pair of the Kate Spade for Keds,  so don’t be surprised if you see another Ked’s haul here in the near future.

If you were going to buy a pair of Keds, what color would you choose?

 

 

Stylish Sundays: Back To School

It’s back to school time everywhere, which always makes me nostalgic for when I was little. Not high school, but 3rd grade because that was my favorite year ever. Back to School then meant new crayons and saddle shoes and fresh pencils.

That year I probably wore something very 90′s like maybe plaid pants with a peplum and suspenders and a shirt that had a now on it. (No seriously, that’s what I wore. Stop laughing, it was cute…then)

So I decided that I’d put together an outfit that is wear if I were going back to school today.

Fashion and Happy Things!   Stylish Sundays: Back To School

Shirt: Feed for Target Skirt: The Limited Shoes: Old Navy (but a present from a friend) Necklace: Gift from a friend.

I love this outfit. The top fulfills my need to do good, because it was part of Feed’s Target campaign. If you don’t know what Feed is or what they do, there is more information here.
I’ve had this skirt for a while now and it’s a bit to big so I felt like I could never make it work. I wore it once before here. But I didn’t love how it turned out. However my dad taught me to sew so I took it in a bit, and now it’s perfect.
And these booties were a gift from my sister in law T. I absolutely adore these boots and they’re perfect for fall.

And of course since it’s back to school I had to wear my pen necklace that Mrs. Cannady gave me. It’s my favorite necklace.
