Clearly anyone who visits this blog will know my complete infatuation with kimonos this summer. I previously featured this one here, but I just had to style it a different wear it more! After all, what’s the point of buying clothes if we will only wear it once?!

I wanted to show how to wear this kimono dressed up a little bit, so I paired it with this black satin romper that’s a closet staple of mine. These incredible strappy heels have been featured here multiple times, but it’s because I can’t get enough of them! And again we have this cute radiant orchid hand bag which brings out a similar color mixed in the kimono.

My goal with my closet is to buy items that I can style multiple ways, that way I’m getting the most of my money. I view a wardrobe as an investment. I always think, do I love this? Will I wear this again? How many different outfits can I think up using this item?  It doesn’t make any sense to purchase an item if some form of “no” is that answer to any of those questions!

There’s one outfit left! This opportunity has been the biggest blessing, and I’m so thankful. I’ll be posting my thoughts on this entire experience on the blog next week! For now, check out more 0f my looks on the TJMaxx Tumblr page.

Happy Weekend!

I love how it's a neutral with some glam, which means it's versatility is almost endless! Throwing this simple white tee over the dress, essentially making it a skirt, dresses down the overall look. The dress goes from wedding attire to a night out with friends with the simple addition of … [Continue reading...]

I couldn't resist this one because I love the hi-lo style and fun summery print. I added some turquoise accessories, like these AWESOME earrings from TJMaxx, to bring out the pops of turquoise throughout the dress. I tend to stray from bold patterns and stick with neutrals, but this opportunity with TJMaxx pushed me outside of the box a bit! This dress … [Continue reading...]

No, no there's not. Which is why when I saw this dress from TJMaxx I knew it needed to be in my closet. And it was a STEAL (less than $20!!!!!!). I always gravitate towards whites and creams, and after searching everywhere for a white lace dress for my maternity shoot, I've … [Continue reading...]
