Where: Work, home to help with my son's homework and then I was going to help my soon-to-be-bride friend with her centerpieces this evening, but she canceled. So I ended up working on my blog and chillin'.
Today's post is special because it is my very first inspirational-look post! I follow Ariana from fatale fashion. I always enjoy her outfits. She posted this outfit on Monday and I thought - Oh my gosh! Not only is this super cute, but I can actually do it, almost exactly!! And the rest is history. This was actually a super easy way to get dressed this morning, as Ariana did most of the work for me! All I had to do was grab my things and go! So, what do you think? Doesn't she look great? How did I do?
I did do things slightly different. I wanted to wear my brown havana belt (she did a black belt, black textured tights, and black boots). I thought this would be a good opportunity to wear my new maroon tights from Target too. Note about the Target tights... I don't really like them. I feel like I am entirely too tall for these tights (though I do fit in the sizing spectrum). Looks like I really do need to break down and just go ahead and put an order into welovecolors. But, the Target ones will do for now. Since I was wearing my brown havana belt, I went with brown boots too!
I put on my brown and teal bracelet my mom bought me a while ago. I love the color combination of brown and teal! The necklace was a gift from my parents. They gave it to me this past Friday when we went out to dinner to celebrate my passing of the Ohio RN NCLEX exam. I LOVE IT so much! It has the nursing symbol on one side and the other has "2011" with a little graduation cap on the numbers. It also has two little charms, a "J" and an "M" for Justine Meyer (me - heehee) with a little pearl detail. This is definitely something I'll be wearing a lot! Ariana's look even inspired me to break out my old glasses! I cannot lie - I pretty much copied her entire look I loved it so much!
And what a fun dress this is! I love the fullness of the skirt! And the material is so soft... I could feel myself all day (HA)!
A little note about the name of my blog, Luckey's Goods. Yes, I know how to spell lucky correctly... Luckey is my maiden name! And I thought Luckey's Goods sounded better than Meyer's Goods. Now you know!
Other ways I have rocked my havana belt:
