sequins, polka dots, and blogging

| Polka Dot Tee: J Crew Factory | Pants: Forever 21 | Purse: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target |
| Bow Flats: Marshalls | Pave Link Bracelet: c/o Urban Peach Boutique | Black Link Bracelet: Forever 21 |

Sequins. Polka dots. I honestly don't know which one I love more but when I saw this shirt I about died because it was so stinkin cute! I love J Crew Factory but some of their pieces are still expensive. However, I called and tracked down this shirt because not only was it on sale in store my friend Meghan sent me a gilt code which took an additional 40% off the total price. So overall I saved about $50, such a great deal! Oh and this 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target purse stealing all the attention in these pictures. Obsessed. Literally obsessed you guys. I love it!! I think it is a really good quality bag especially for the price. Plus you can fit so much into this purse, it would be a great bag for school or work. If for some reason you still haven't gotten one for yourself, you better get on it because these purses are hard to come by after all of the Limsanity.

Oh, and this is the first set of pictures not taken by my husband. My friend Lily took them for me and I took the pictures for her blog; they came out great right?! She was over at my house for a little blogger mingle party (read: gossip sesh, more on that later) that we threw and we thought it would be fun to take outfit pictures of each other. And it was so fun! I love that from blogging I have made some really great friends. Lily and I met through blogging a couple months ago and I already feel like I have made such a wonderful friend. We have started making some really fun plans together that I am really excited about! I have also made friends with other bloggers that live across the country who I talk to on Instagram and other forms of social media, and it is definitely one of the most positive things that has come from blogging!
