Blouse - Target, Cami - F21, Jeans - BR, Pumps - Anne Michelle, Bracelet - TJ Maxx, Belt - H&M, Lips - See Sheer by MAC



My best friend and I have a thing for birds. She calls people she loves "goose" and I quickly caught on and followed suit. I don't know, there's just something about that word we enjoy saying. Goose. Goooose.
I found this casual top on a Target trip where I was returning a concealer. Good sense told me to just return the item and dart on outta there, but I couldn't help it and I looked through the clothes section. I like this flowy tunic top I found. It has character, what with the birdies and all. The color is also a pretty teal/green and it makes for a nice combo with jeans. Shades of green and blue are huge for Spring.

P.S.     After almost six years of dating, I  finally moved in with my fiance on Sunday! So if the background looks a bit different, that's the reason why (although the rooms are painted the same color as they were in my old house). We are in the process of buying our own condo or small home, so until then, this is where I'll be. Yup! Just me, my fiance, and three roommates. Oh, and two dogs :) It's a full house. I close the door to my little room that serves as my big closet. It's a room that's adjacent to the one I share with my fiance. His room doesn't have enough space for my stuff, so the room next to it serves as my powder room. It has my vanity where I do my makeup and hair, and a walk-in closet.
I keep the door closed while I'm getting ready and blogging. I think the roommates would judge me if they really knew what I do: behavioral specialist by trade (I guess?) but beauty and fashion blogger by heart. I may not do this for a living, but I love it a lot more then I ever dreamed I would.

  1. I would have never guessed the blouse was from Target. Love the birds and the length of it. You look great as usual!

    I love blogging too, especially "meeting" all the amazing women in this bloggy world. What's funny is that the first three blogs I came across (before I knew what blogs were) was yours, Andi's and Veronika's (don't remember the exact order but it was all within an hour).
    And that's how I started blogging...and became slightly addicted to it :)

    1. Yes, I just bought it! There were tons left, and in different prints and colors. Goose is such a funny word, it makes us smile more then anything! Please don't be afraid to try blogging. I am still learning! I may not have the best photos or the high tech stuff down, but that's not the point for me anyway. I think you girls can tell that I genuinely love it, and that is what motivates me :)

  4. That blouse is so pretty! I love it! The bird design is so cute, I just got a dress with a bird pattern on it!

    I can just imagine you working away in your little room and the boys outside wondering what your doing. You paint a funny picture of it!

  12. yay!!! congrats on moving in with the BF hon :) i love your top!! the bird print is so cute on this gauzy type of material it reminds me of miu miu without the ridonculous price tag! haha i know it's ironic that i have no problem spending X amount of money on bags and shoes.. but clothes are hard to justify because of the tear and wear.. plus they won't always fit.. now shoes and bags.. they ALWAYS fit hahahaha. i'm going to see if i can find this on target.com!

    as for my chanel bags.. i dunno.. i just don't really baby them.. honestly.. i carry my bags on the daily and i've found that they keep up pretty well.. caviar especially in black.. is almost totally foolproof.. it doesn't scratch very easily or change shape.. just make sure you don't purposely scratch it on something very sharp though... and def don't overstuff it.. (i do that a lot actually) but as you can see from my latest post.. it's pretty durable and still looks new.. i actually wear my caviar in the rain a lot.. HAHA. i know i'm bad.. but it holds up pretty well.. i dunno i just feel like there's no reason to spend so much on something if you aren't gonna love and use it!! often!! i do baby wipe my bags down about once a month and let them air dry out. i hope this helps!! let me know if you have any questions hon :)

  13. Thank you girls! I am loving all the feedback on moving in with my fiance. I know that most of you have been there!

    Shadowy Lady: I guess we subconsciously waited to move in until we got engaged. I feel like the past few months have been a whirlwind! I never expected him to propose, even though I really wanted our time to come :)

    Lisa: I am carrying my Chanel tonight, you have officially inspired me to get on with it and quit worrying so much about it! Thanks Lisa :)
