Happy TGIF!

I am so excited to pack my bags and head off to Colorado…not even this rainy day can change my mood.  Two more classes stand between me and Spring Break (holla holla). Bryce and I are leaving after St. Patrick’s Day and heading to Greeley, Fort Collins, Denver, and Colorado Springs. If you have any recommendations on what to do there or places to eat at,  please let me know.  I’m ready to wake up to those majestic mountain views and enjoy our car karaoke and snack stops!

St. Patrick’s Day is quickly approaching! I wanted to share little outfit inspiration and hope it touches you with a bit of Irish luck. Do you ever wonder where outfit inspiration comes from besides Pinterest?  This idea came from Kelly Ripa’s outfit last St. Patrick’s Day on her morning talk show.  She had on a black turtleneck paired with a green, sequin midi skirt.You just never know where you will see something that triggers your own outfit ideas.  I think this slip dress works perfect for any day festivities and also doubles for an excellent nighttime outfit. If you are blessed with warmer weather, the bodysuit I paired with it, could easily be taken off and exchanged for a little bandeau.  For an edgy vibe, grab a basic, black leather jacket and rock it with bangled bracelets and large hoop earrings.

I found this gorgeous, sequin, iridescent dress from Revolve on sale for $45. Revolve is wonderful.  If you have never shopped their online store, they offer two day free shipping guaranteed no matter how much you spend and the product reviews caused me size down when ordering. So, take the time to read them before making your purchase. The emerald dress is made by the sequin guru Motel. They are based in England.  If you click the link at the bottom of the post, this dress is currently $15 USD.  You read that correctly.  Gasp! A romper version of it is available at ASOS for only $36. Students get a discount of 10% from ASOS. The turtleneck bodysuit is from Brandy Melville, but they carry one just like it at Lulu’s. My sock boots are from Haute & Rebellious, and they are seriously so comfortable and were affordable. Earrings were made with all the parts from the jewelry section at Hobby Lobby. The iridescent gems match the sequins of the dress.

The shamrocks that grow,

And may trouble avoid you

Wherever you go.”
