Marilyn Style: You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile

It seems lately all I am doing is rejecting the idea that I don’t have any “basics.” I promise, I really don’t have that many comparatively (this is coming from a girl with three black lace ball gowns) but I am trying to fix that.
zIMG_6029ModCloth has been driving me CRAZY lately with all of their sales and one-day deals. It seems like every day something I had been eyeing on the site was on super sale. This being the season of giving, I survived with buying only ONE dress. I think I deserve a round of applause! I had this cranberry-colored dress on my wish list and it already wasn’t too expensive, so when I saw it go to 50% off I figured now was the time to pull the trigger. I don’t have a lot of go-to holiday dresses that aren’t obnoxiously in your face, so I am glad to have something a little more basic and comfortable for the many celebrations coming up.
zIMG_6035Keeping the “basic” theme going, I paired this dress with a leather-trimmed black blazer, cozy as ever fleeced-lined tights, my flannel boots and a pearl necklace and earrings to class it all up.

zIMG_6043This headband is my new favorite, as I have always struggled with wanting to wear them but having too large of a head to make headband-wearing a headache-free reality. Nothing like cutting off circulation to your forehead to make you feel pretty! This headband is the first one I have found that stays in place with out giving me a headache! Plus, it’s sparkly!
zIMG_6042My favorite accessory of all time, though, has to be this smile. I have been ragged on A LOT by strangers and family alike for not smiling more. It’s not that I am never happy, I just suffer from Resting Bitch Face, as I know most of us do. When I force a smile for pictures, I end up looking deranged or like I’m about to cry, so I normally just leave the smile out all together. My boyfriend snapped this when we were “done” taking blog photos. He cracks me up a lot, so the genuine smile makes an appearance! Photographic proof that I do not have a heart of ice (sorry, Elsa).

Jackie Style: Little Black Dress

Mixing patterns and playing with color is wonderful, but who doesn’t love a little black dress every once in a while?

I love how elegant a black dress looks, and it acts as a great base for accessorizing. Admittedly, I didn’t do much with this outfit, but I was going for a simple look this week.

I paired the outfit with a yellow belt (which someone told me made me look like Batgirl, which is AWESOME!) and some red flats. I love how the bright colors pop! My hair was also super huge, so I clipped it back with a fun accent flower.

This was a special day for me too, as I got my first tattoo! My best girlfriends and I all got a cherry blossom on our foot in memorial for our best friend, who passed away three and a half years ago, as she was going to get cherry blossoms up her side. The top-right foot is mine 🙂 Also, the tattoo parlor we chose is a all-female operated business and the only one of its kind in the Midwest. Cool, but also kind of sad. Time for more ladies to open tattoo parlors in the region!
