Monday Brights

Happy Last Day of March!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I went to Raleigh to see my bestie and to finally meet some of my amazing blogger friends at the Southern Blog Society NC meet-up.  Moon & Lola hosted the event, and can I just tell you that everything in that store is adorable?  I want to bring it all home with me to replace one of my spare rooms.  I'm sure the hubby won't mind.  The NC blogging beauties could not have been more precious in person!  A special thank you to Emily for organizing everything!

Today is the last Monday of the month, and a sups busy work day for me.  What better to tackle that than a neon work outfit.  Normally this bright skirt from Pink Slate Boutique would be too much paired with a neon yellow, but the grey & white stripes of the Poof! Apparel top serve as a nice buffer between the vibrant hues.  Need some brights in your life?  Use CODE MODANDTHEMAR for 20% off your purchase from Pink Slate Boutique !

And speaking of adorable brights, how cute is my new phone case from Minnie & Emma ??!?  Never underestimate how crucial a cute phone case is to a fashion/style blogger.  Selfies anyone?  
 Thanks for reading!  Go crush your Monday! {ps - don't forget to enter the White Plum Giveaway}

Mint To Be

Happy Friday, Ya'll!

I hope everyone is SUUUper pumped for the weekend!  I know I am!  I am traveling to Raleigh Saturday to see the bestie and to attend my first blogger event - a meet & greet with fellow NC members of the Southern Blog Society.  I am so extremely excited to finally meet some of these blogging beauties that I "talk" to everyday.  

Can you really ever have too many scarves?!  Not if they are as adorable as this polkadot one from FRAAS.  This turquoise blue is one of my go-to colors for Spring & Summer, and it is so lightweight and bright!  FRAAS scarves are sold worldwide via department stores, specialty retailers and online sites including Amazon.  You can also call: 212-575-0191 to order!  And, at only $32, this dottie scarf won't blow your accessory budget.  

The hue of the scarf matched too perfectly with my new favorite flats from White Plum!  It was mint-to-be.  Get it?...   So now that you are in love with these flats, have you entered the White Plum Giveaway yet??!?   First prize is a $50 giftcard, so these babies could be all yours!  And if you can't wait, or have no luck, you can shop with  code MAGGIE20 for 20% off your purchase! Honestly, if I could wear this outfit every day, I would.  Everything is so functional as well as fashionable.  The skort from Poof! Apparel makes it easy to "live" without showing the goods.  Perfect for all of you mamas out there.  You can find a Poof! retailer on their website, or check their social media accounts for info - instagramfacebook & twitter.

Happy Thursday, friends!

I have been waiting all week to bring you this fun giveaway from my friends at White Plum!  ...and to let you know about the sweet discount code - use MAGGIE20 at checkout for 20% off your order until April 6th!  ...  White Plum is another online favorite I discovered through Instagram.  Reading more about the company, you can instantly tell why I love it.  White Plum makes the shopping experience for women like you and me both convenient and affordable.  They have created an accessible lifestyle brand that you can shop from your desk, couch or pool chair.

I have already worn this hi-lo tunic waaaay too many times since it arrived on my doorstep.  Sadly, this is the first cotton tunic I have ever owned, and I have no clue why it took me so long to jump on the bandwagon.  This particular one is available in 15 colors!...and I may or may not already have another 5 in my cart... I just adore this coral/orange color for Spring and Summer.  

White Plum and I have teamed up to giveaway two amazing prizes!  First Prize will be a $50 giftcard to White Plum (trust me this will be SO easy to spend) and Second Prize is a gorgeous Genoa necklace that I will actually be styling on the blog next week.

Turbie Times

Happy Hump Day!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  Spring fever has hit me full blast and I am counting down the days to sunshine & booze cruises.  But until then, jeans are my bffs every weekend.  I was recently introduced to a denim brand that has quickly become one of my favorites.  Dittos is 70's inspired denim with a modern look.  The fit is incredible, and I just adore the zippered detail in this pair.  Check out their store locator to find all of your favorite retailers and stock up on some seriously good denim.

Did you catch my other secret in this post?  These Kushyfoot foot covers are a life saver...or, a foot saver to be exact.  I wear heels at least 6 days a week.  I know my feet are going to regret it, but I just love heels.  And sometimes, that much walking on stilts can kill a girl's feet.  These ultra low-cut foot covers have a cushioned pad for the ball of your foot, and they are completely undetectable with all of your favorite pumps.  They also come in adorable polka dot and lace options for extra pizzazz.  

btw- this turban is actually just a silk scarf tied and wrapped.  Easy peasy!

Thanks for reading!  Linkups below. ps - there is a SUPER fun giveaway tomorrow!

Socks & Heels

Happy Tuesday, friends!

The whole sock-heel trend is something I have been secretly dying to try for some time now.  However, when out shopping or browsing online, "dainty anklet socks" are not on the top of my list.  Imagine my joy when this pair arrived on my doorstep from my friends at Kushyfoot.  Challenge accepted.

I can't lie to you.  I struggled styling these socks.  I perused hundreds of pins and Instagram photos, and tried on nearly half of my closet.  Either the colors didn't jive, or the proportions just made it look off.  My initial instinct was to pair them with a flirty dress or skirt to create somewhat of a vintage look.  It just wasn't me.  So, I dug these lace shorts out of the bottom of my dresser and built the outfit from there.  I knew I wanted to go in more of a chic, street-style direction so the Francine top from Urban Philosophy was a perfect choice.  Now that I have tackled socks with heels once, I am extremely eager to create more looks.  Perhaps a girly sock with a sandal?  

The perfect touch to this look was these new statement earrings from Christina Faithe Jewelry.  Seriously, everything from this store makes me happy!  The shapes and colors are so fresh and new.  Don't forget to use code SHOP for 10% off your purchase!  And check out her Instagram page for more inspo!

So friends, are you going to be trying this new trend soon?  Linkups below.
