Weather vs. Fashion

Hello loves!

I'm quickly writing this before getting ready for class but I decided I HAVE to share this website with you.

I am constantly checking my weather channel app or the actual "Weather Channel" website to find out what the temperature is outside and what it is going to be like whenever I am done with class, work, or shopping at the grocery store.

Well...the weather channel app lies. Not all the time, but sometimes. I've found myself walking outside with a sweater and a long sleeve shirt only to be welcomed by 85 degree weather.
Not pleasant.

If you're anything like me, and like to dress according to the weather check this site out. I found it a couple of weeks ago and have been meaning to blog about it!

Daily Dress Me

I took a screen shot so sorry for the terrible quality. You can go to the website and type in your own city or zip code and it gives you accurate information about the weather, a little description, and an out fit example for every day of the week. These are the outfits chosen for the area I live in.

All of the outfits come from Forever 21 but you can always tweak them to match your own personal style.

I don't know if it works for other countries besides the U.S. but check it out and see! It's definitely a life saver.

That's all for now loves. I have to go start getting ready for class or I'll be late...again. Have a fabulous day!


Do you pay attention to the weather when you get dressed or do you just pick out an outfit?

Going the Glinda Route

"In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." - Mean Girls
Halloween costumes are a HUGE deal. I know I started thinking of mine in early September, and not only do you have to worry about the costume but where you'll be wearing it to.

Last year I was lame and went trick-or-treating with some of my friends. I was in it for the candy and not so much the costume...I threw on a freaking sheet and called myself a roman alright! Ugh. Not my finest hour.

Anyways, this year I'm going to a halloween party that my boyfriend's boss is throwing.

So basically, I can't dress like a slut.

I've decided also this year that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on my costume because as everyone knows you only wear it once because you don't want to be caught DEAD in a repeated costume.

I chose to be a witch this year. Simply dress in all black and buy a witch's hat.
($3 at Target. Whatta steal) I'm just going to play up the makeup a TON.

Anyways. I'll post photos of my finished attire but I'm thinking more of a pretty, more sophisticated witch. I'm not all into the green Wizard of Oz look, I'm going the Glinda Route.

Here are some of my ideas for makeup..I'm definitely digging the sparkle one.

Have you guys decided what your costume is going to be? Do you have any other makeup ideas? Leave a response!

Thanks for reading and have a fabulous day!

Coral & Leopard = LOVE

Hello lovelies!
I'm sorry I haven't updated in a while, butttt, I have exciting blog posts coming up in the future!

I cleaned out my closet and spent TWO hours at Forever 21 which consistently fuels my addiction to fashion.

Back to the news, I got these new coral high waisted shorts which I ABSOLUTELY adore.

I paired these shorts with a black and grey leopard top, which I also got from Forever 21. 

Now some of you in the United States are probably asking why I bought these at the beginning of winter. In Florida it never really gets THAT cold and I think the shorts will look adorable with black tights or leggings underneath and black'll be cute. I know.

I also got this necklace which is adorable. I never really wear silver but the only other one they had was black so I picked up this one. I still think it's a cute statement necklace which will match a lot of my outfits. 

Do you have anything you're definitely transferring from summer over to fall? Leave a response! 

Have a fabulous day!

Ulta Haul/Smashbox Review

Ahhhh, today was a good day.

Finally after like 2 years of questioning, ULTA opened in my town. Today they had their soft opening which apparently isn't as grand as a GRAND opening but you could still get unnecessary makeup goodies and leave happy...which is exactly what I did. 

Mmm so let's get on with the pictures!

Left - Right: 
Essie "Mint Candy Apple", Essie "Splash of Grenadine", 
Butter London "Trout Pout", Tarte "dollface", Smashbox "Focal Point"

I really want to focus on "Focal Point" by smashbox...focus on "Focal Point"? Oh dear lord. I want to TALK about "Focal Point"...mleh.

This palette didn't really catch my eye at first, but when I looked at it closer and swatched it I literally fell in love. 

I'm surprised I picked this palette because for some reason some part of me associates glittery eyeshadow with the crappy makeup you get for 8 year olds...or vegas show girls. I'm definitely more of a matte type of girl so I tend to stay away from anything that sparkles like Edward Cullen in the sunlight.

Although, I digress. I like this palette simply because the shadows are so pigmented and they are so creamy and glide on smoothly.

I took swatches both indoors and outdoors



The lightest shade, Champagne (bottom or far left), and the darkest shade, Java (top or far right), are what I expected. Champagne is a little lighter and sparklier than I expected but as a highlight shade it's not THAT outrageous. 

However, Flamingo, the medium shade (obviously in the middle), was a complete surprise to me. I've been on the hunt for a coral colored shade after seeing a post on Pinterest (which I now cannot find) because the makeup was stunning. It was white, light gold, and coral with winged liner...that description did not do it justice. I'll try to find the picture and post it later.

ANYWAYS. I immediately "oooo-ed" when I swatched this color. Obviously in the pictures it comes off a little harsh and orangey but with a light application this color will be gorgeous. In person the color is a beautiful pinkish-orange color but with, I would guess, a pink base. 

Ahhh. That description doesn't do the color justice so if you're at ULTA or maybe Sephora just check this palette out. 

Good gravy I've done a lot of unnecessary rambling. 
I have one more thing to share and then I won't subject you to anymore of my gibberish. 

I got these shoes the other day at Target. They're adorable. My mother hates them but I love them! 

Have you ever purchased something your mother absolutely hated?

Outfit of the Day

Outfit Of The Day (ootd..for future reference) post and some obvious rambling. Let's goo!

It was a wee-bit cold outside this morning, more like low 70's but hey in Florida that's enough for a long(ish) sleeved shirt with appropriate layers. 

      -  Plaid Top: Target
      - Grey T-shirt: Forever 21
      - Shorts: Hollister
      - Purse: Steve Madden 

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this purse. I saw it at DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) and of course HAD to get it.  You can add it to any outfit and it's one of those pieces that blatantly states that YOU ARE stylish.  

As you can see, its very... fringey? I also love the gold accents on the handles. This is, what I call, a double handle bag. There's probably some term for it but whatever. I usually use the two main handles, not the cross body one but the fact it can become a cross body makes it so convenient.

...and the rambling begins

Hmmm. How do you start a new blog post? I guess I’ll just launch myself into this thing and see how it goes.
I’m Kelly if you haven’t read the handy side bar. A little random background info shall we?
  • I’m a floridian. I don’t like the cold..I’m a warm weather person..well, more like a mid 60’s to mid 70’s kind of person. 
  • I seriously might have a shopping addiction so don’t judge. THIS IS A NO JUDING ZONE!
  • I don’t have the best spelling/grammar skills. I’m a terrible speller and usually have a hard time translating ideas to words
  • …and I overuse the same adjective multiple times because I have no creativity. 
  • I’m a master procrastinator.
  • I love astrology and read my horoscope everday. (I'm a Leo and definitely a strong one at that)
PLAN for this blog to be about random fashion crap and my lame life.
I’m gonna try to do one post a day, hence, but as said before, I’m a procrastinator but I’ll do my best.
…I feel like that was a terribly long introduction. Mleh. Whatever.
