"Tank" You Very Much

This black lace tank top has been hanging out in my closet for a couple of months now. It was a thrift shop find from my mother-in-law, but I wasn't sure how to wear it. However, Audrey from Putting Me Together is always showing me so many cute ways to wear lace tanks, I knew I didn't want to get rid of it!  This weekend I am definitely pairing it with a pair of skinny jeans for Sean's soccer game!

I'm short on words today- things have been super hectic around here- I'm talking soccer five of the past seven days, and a crazy detox diet, and a dog who's scared to poop outside. I feel like I'm way busier than I probably am, but  it's still taking it's toll on me. I'm so relieved it's Friday!

Give It Away Now!

Just stopping by for a quick hello today! I am currently baby-stepping my sophomores through a research paper and I swear it is the most physically exhausting thing I do all year! I don't have time for an outfit post today, but I do have time for some giveaways :) There's always time for giveaways, right?

First up we've got a $25 gift card for ASOS! Lulu and I are partial to the French bulldog t-shirt, but we will let you choose any piece you want.

The winner is..... Nancy C. Be on the look out for an email from me :)

Me and my BFF Callie
And finally, WAY back in February, I did a True Blue Friendship giveaway with the ladies at J.Jill. While, it's been a long time coming (they had lots of winners to choose from participating blogs and so many wonderful stories to read through), I promise for one lucky lady and her best friend, it was worth the wait!

 Our winners are Brynn and Andria, and here is Brynn's winning entry:

My true blue friend is Andria. We've known each other our whole lives, actually - her parents are my godparents, and her family lives right next door to my grandma. We have celebrated every birthday together, every Christmas, and nearly every 4th of July. We live about an hour away from each other right now, but we make it a point to see each other every week. We laugh, we cry, we vent, we snuggle, we play games, we sing's pretty much the most perfect friendship I have ever had, and will ever have!

How sweet is that?? Congrats ladies and I hope you all get some awesome new spring time clothes!

Peer Pressure Pants

Peer pressure got the best of me, and I broke down and bought my own pair of Pixie pants from Old Navy. So much for staying strong, I guess. Stephanie did a great job reviewing the pants, and I don't have much to add. I do think they have the potential to be universally flattering for MOST body types, but like the Rockstar skinny jeans, they require trying on and messing around with the sizes. Some women may feel more comfortable sizing up, and because these pants are a thick, stretchy material, sizing up is easy and won't result in baggy butts or saggy crotches.

I disagree with reviews claiming that the pants are too thin- that's just not true. In fact, I would say that thickness-wise, they are very similar to the Rockstars. It definitely feels like you are wearing a substantial pair of pants. That little 5% spandex addition, while it's not a miracle worker, did help me feel nice and tucked it, no muffin top action going on. I probably wouldn't pay full-price for the Pixie pants, right at $35, but when they go on sale for less than $25, I definitely think you will be getting your money's worth out of them.

I also like the versatility of the pants. Like Stephanie showed us, they can easily be dressed up or down. I usually shy away from graphic designs, but I thought this black-and-white option could be paired with tons of colors and different tops. I'm glad I branched out. I wore these on a laid-back weekend lunch and movie outing (I accidentally fell asleep during Muppets Most Wanted, but totally cried just watching the trailer for the upcoming Annie remake!), but I would feel equally comfortable in them at work.

I'm also loving these D'Orsay flats from Forever 21. I been looking for a new pair of black flats for a while now. My others has seen better days, and then Lulu finished them off for me in a chewing frenzy. I liked the cute cut-out details of these, but I am having to get used to the pointy toe length. I feel a little like I'm wearing clown shoes!
