You know how as we get older, we all seem to refine and define our style a little more?  I know I have definitely done that over the years and especially when it comes to this blog.  But every now and again, it's fun to partake in a style that isn't necessarily my own, but that I LOVE.

I said sometime last year that I think it would be awesome to dress like a "rockabilly" "pin up" girl and have that be my style for a whole year.  But, I don't think I could actually stick with it.  There are just too many styles that I love.

It's always nice to dabble in something different though, and that's what I did with this look.  I've worn this pink dress before and you can see it's something a little different than today's look.  I was really feeling some pin up hair, so I rolled the back of my hair and pinned it all down and left some "bangs" for the front.  I used a scarf I recently thrifted as an accessory and then just victory rolled my bangs to the side.  I hope you like it and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3

I remember a time when I was in love with maxi skirts.  And it seems that when each new season comes around, my tastes change.  At the end of last summer, I almost got rid of this maxi skirt.  I had thrifted it and just never wanted to wear it.

But I'm glad I kept it, because this particular day, I was in the mood for a maxi skirt!  And the cutest part of this skirt is that the buttons down the front are shaped like daisies!  I should have gotten a close up. :)  I kept everything pretty casual with a simple cami I just bought from JCPenney and a thrifted Michael Kors Crossbody bag from Crossroads Trading Co.  It is one of my designer finds I spoke about in last week's post.

How are you feeling about maxi skirts?  Still loving or not so much?

When my beautiful blogging friend Abril came through Portland, we got together and had so much fun shopping and having lunch.  I really wish she lived closer, because she's the kind of person you can talk to all day long!  I really enjoyed meeting her!

While I took her around the Hawthorne District in Portland, I promised I would take her to one of my favorite shopping spots: Crossroads Trading Co.  While there, she found an amazing Chanel purse replica and I found these Urban Outfitters cigarette jeans along with some other amazing designer items! ;)

I always love anything high waist and even better when it is a skinny jean.  I really love the fit of these jeans and how they have just the right amount of crop at the hem.  I wore them with my favorite crop top of the moment: this white Mossimo one from Target.  It's boxy, slightly sheer, and goes with EVERYTHING.  I need to check online and see if it comes in another color.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3
