It feels like I made this tweet two days ago:
Screen Shot 2014-08-31 at 11.01.01 PMWelp. It’s now September 1st – Happy Labor Day everyone! I’m spending my day doing the most laborious of all labors, moving. Double ugh. However, whilst moving I’ll be listening to this rad playlist. Hope all of my readers can enjoy it poolside, on a boat, or just plain relaxing! Have a great day!

Wanderlust and Glitter Dust Dan Post

You guys. I really changed things up this week – instead of wearing straight red, white, and blue I changed it to red, white, and grey. Until I started doing these posts, I never knew how patriotic my subconscious fashion sense was! I’m ‘aight with it THO.

I’m also uh-bsessed with anything and everything fringy, so I knew this sweater was a must have! (You might remember seeing it in my “shop” tab of current favorites!) I also knew I had to have these Dan Post “Liberty” boots the moment I saw them. Seems obvious for me right?! I’ll be wearing these babies year around with shorts, dresses, skirts, jeans, leggings, etc. Over all, this is an easy and comfortable look that I will probably be wearing to some outdoor night-time concerts as the weather starts to cool off just a little bit. What do you guys think? Would you rock a crop top and short shorts? Too much? No such thing for a former beauty queen? HA! Thanks for reading, have a great weekend!

All of the new fall styles have been arriving in stores and I am practically salivating at some of the new pieces in some of my favorite stores. Here are a few things I might be picking up soon!

Nothing brings out crazy fashion like MTV’s VMA Awards – shock value is king for what is probably primarily a teenage audience. (So many memorable moments from Britney with the snake to Miley with that foam finger…) I’m here with my best and worst dressed list!

My favorites:

jlo

I can’t even handle this. She is 45 years old people and she actually pulls this look off. Gorgeous!

Get serious, I love everything about this. Crop top - check. Sparkle - check. Fringe - check. Now I'm just desperately racking my brain for any occasion where it would be appropriate for me to wear something like this! (Not kidding...)

For once Kylie Jenner gets to have a moment! I think she looks so beautiful! Love a good wrap dress and a nice high slit, get it girl!

Sleek and sexy. I'm into it.

Because confidence and a good sense of humor are ALWAYS fashionable, I have to commend Katy Perry for doing this hilarious throwback. As if I couldn't love her any more!

EW List:

I mean... yuck. Also, I'm sooo tired of seeing her in thigh high boots in every color of the rainbow. Time for a new look! She's an adorable girl with a cute body... fire that stylist stat Ariana.

I mean… yuck. I hate anything that flashes a brand across it. Also, I’m sooo tired of seeing her in thigh high boots in every color of the rainbow. Time for a new look! She’s an adorable girl with a cute body… I hope she gets a new stylist STAT.

A desperate cry for attention if I've ever seen one. That's all I'll say.

I have NEVER seen T. Swift on a worst dressed list - she is so consistently fashionable... and good for her for taking a risk... but... I hate it.

EW.

EW. This is one ill-fitting dress, which makes it look cheap and doesn’t flatter her figure at all. ‘t this fit her body better and they had sewn up that slit just a few inches this could actually be really pretty and elegant.

I might as well mention this fab performance by Sam Smith – LOVED IT! One of my friends tweeted that he satisfies the Adele comeback we’ve all been waiting for and I kind of have to agree with that!

What were your favorite moments from the VMA’s?

It was pretty much love at first sight when I found this dress whilst looking for something to wear to an upcoming wedding. I knew I would have to pair it with a bold red lip, retro hair (oops I tried, it was super humid the day I shot this look…), and my emerald green shoes. (Which are found on ebday in every size for about $25 by the way… I have two colors!) Hope you all like this look as much as I do – you can’t help but twirl in this little number!
