Home is the Key: White House Black Market Ankle Pant

What is Home is Key? It is Habitat for Humanity’s national campaign to help address the nation’s rising affordable housing problem. Did you know that one in four households in the US pays more then 30% of their income for housing, leaving it very difficult to afford other basic necessities? Having affordable housing allows families to have more resources and live healthier safer lives.  Home is Key wants to unlock the future for many families this April by educating and partnering with people that want to help spread their message. So why not do your part?

There are many ways to get involved in this project, but one I want to specifically focus on in this post deals with shopping, of course! Chico’s FAS, the parent company of White House Black Market (WHBM), Chico’s, and Soma Intimates is supporting this campaign by allowing their customers to donate in each of their stores or online. Also the company has picked specific items from the stores that all the proceeds from that item will be donated to Home is Key during a set time. From April 23-May 31st WHBM proceeds from every Comfort Stretch Ankle Pant sold will go to support Habitat. These pants are super comfy, have great stretch (lets face it ladies we love a pant that has a little give), and the fit is excellent (true to size). I only have one pair, but I am thinking I need to invest in another, especially since it can help a family have a safe living environment and also because they look great with my cactus shirt! šŸ™‚

So join me and get involved by visiting Habitat.org/key and make a donation in any amount. Home is the Key runs through April 30. Every little bit helps!

Happy Friday! It is actually feeling like Spring today for the first time, and I couldn’t be more excited! What about you? I am so over the cold and snowy weather. Now that it has warmed up, what do you wear? Well for me its leggings of course. I love the faux leather ones, which are great for Spring, considering that in the morning and evening the temperature maybe a littler more chillier. I styled the leggings with a black tank, which is perfect for that afternoon warmer temps. I paired the outfit with a tan moto jacket to give it a little color. Added a couple of accessories and wedges and I was good to go. What are you wearing today??

Cheeky

Shop: Jacket | Dress | Necklace (one, two) | Handbag | Booties | Lipstick | Watch

I am always a bit cheeky! Isn’t everybody? Well in this outfit I feel like I can get away with it! I love dress and bootie season. And since this week started to feel like fall this outfit was perfect to showcase. I styled a brightly colored dress with black suede booties, a two toned fitted jacket, and a exaggerated statement necklace. All the textures and colors mixed together is what made me fall in love with fashion and personal style. I finished the look with a cross-body with gold trim and a red lip. This is probably my favorite fall look thus far and I feel like I can wear it anywhere.

That Blue Dress

Happy Tuesday! How was your weekend? Mine was great! Spent sometime in Wisconsin for a wedding. The weather and scenery were beautiful there, not to mention the lake I got to look at everyday (Pearl Lake). Also, not to be a dream taker, but soon it will change to fall like weather, so I thought I should take advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures and wear above the knee dresses with bare legs. 

I paired this navy dress with nude heels and accessorized with a bright beaded belt. I finish the outfit with this gorgeous clutch/ cross body, gold jewelry and topped it off with a bold orange lip (basically saying I am ready for fall). I think this outfit is perfect for a wedding, going out with the girls or a business meeting. I consider it comfortable, yet stylish.

Tassel Love

                               One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten

Tassel earrings are all the rage lately. But I am sure you can see why! They are cute, colorful and stylish.

You can use tassels earrings to accessorize any outfit. Dress up your jeans and tee with them or add a splash of color to a little black dress. They are a great accent to almost any outfit. Tassel earrings range from all prices, sizes and colors. I have rounded up many that are trending below. Some of my favorites are these beaded tassels ones here, or these multicolored ones here, this brightly colored pair here, and these ones here ; which are super affordable. What are your favorite tassels? I linked the rest of mine below. Enjoy!
