11 of 2011

I decided I would do a countdown of 11 things I loved in 2011. 

#11. Frank Ocean 
Back in May a friend of mine told me about an artist she had be listening to named Frank Ocean. I quickly downloaded anything I could find by him and fell in love! If you are already aware of Frank here are some songs for you to enjoy and if you're not then please give him a listen. 

Thinking About You (The original version is the only version worth listening to if you ask me.) 

Swim Good 


Nature Feels 

Frank Ocean was also featured on Jay-Z and Kanye West' Watch The Throne Album.

Pinning Over: Polo, Pearls and Pinterest

I started a pin board this week dedicated to somethings I hold dear to my heart: Pearl, Polo (Ralph Lauren) and all things Preppy. Ever since I saw Cher walking to school in her knee highs and peacoat in Clueless I was totally and completely in love with the preppy style. Throughout middle school I was definitely labeled  a prep. Today however I see myself as a "jack of all trades" kind of girl. I decided to post a few of my favorite finds for today's Pinning Over.

So Thankful

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I spent my Thanksgiving with my family watching movies and eating entirely to much. This year I am thankful for everyone in my life being healthy. This year I decided I wanted to set the table for our family meal. 

I filled the middle centerpiece with an assortment of beans and corn. The two round vases are filled with red balls I found at Michaels. The white candles are just vanilla candles found at the dollar store. The two small square vases are filled with corn and orange pumpkin scented candles, also found at the dollar store. I used a set of my mom's old placemats and a simple crayon to write the names of our guest. I found three different color ribbions at Michaels that I placed down the middle of the table. 

Now let's talk about the outfit! 
Shirt-American Eagle
Suede shorts- Free People 
Belt-Forever 21(old)
Boots- INC 
Pearls- Monet

Wellies for rain

I have always wanted a pair of Hunter Wellies but I am just not willing to pay over 100 dollars for a pair of boots that I will not wear very often. Well my Mother finally heard my cry and purchased these for me. 
She found these lovely Steve Madden shoes at TJ Maxx for a whopping $29.99. 

Outfit Details: 
Shirt: American Eagle 
Jeans: Zara
Boots: Steve Madden 
Belt: American Eagle 
Umbrella: Target (I doubt anyone cares about my umbrella)

Short Girl Problems

I love fall! I love it with every fiber in my body however I have a hard time finding boots that fit my calves. Often times when I shop for shoes I have to literally pray before I attempt to zip up a pair of boots. I found these boots online and they fit my calves perfectly. These boots have a 15 1/2 circumference. 
AK Anne Klein Black Leather Carloe Wide Calf Boots 

I wore this to work today and was asked several times if I planned on going horse back riding.

Pants: Zara (old)

Pinning Over

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I did a bit of shopping and a lot of sleeping. Well here are my favorite pinterest finds from this past week. 

Outfits Worth Remaking

I am not exactly a fan of animal print but I am really starting to warm up to it. I just love this cheetah print blouse!

This outfit is so simple and I think that's why I love it so much. 

Food Worth Fixing 

Spiced double chocolate chip cake

Hot fudge bourbon milkshake 

A Girl Can Dream 

These Burberry Rain Boots are not a dream item because of the price; but because I have huge calves and I would never be able to get these boots past my ankles. 

What I'm Searching For 

I am searching for the perfect pair of black suede heels. 

Have a great week!!
