Life has been pretty crazy busy lately... so busy that I'm tired just thinking about it all. Also, I cannot believe that tomorrow is the first day of May! Crazy how time just zooms on by. I have a ton of posts and things to share with you, but you'll have to excuse my slow blogging as I adjust to this busy bee lifestyle that has recently come upon me. For now, hope you will enjoy these bright snaps!

When your wrists haven't grown since the age of five and your fingers are like long string beans, you learn fast that bracelets and rings will almost never make it as a part of your daily ensemble. While this is a hard thing to accept, given the latest "arm party" trend, you learn to cope and work with what you've got. Thankfully for gals like me, there are statement necklaces to be had, and boy, do I love to have them. This beautiful bold necklace by Accesorize was sent to me as a part of DailyBuzz Style's April 9x9 Styling Challenge. I was thrilled when I received it because I kept thinking about all the ways I could wear it. For the challenge, I decided to style my new necklace with my favorite new ombré button up c/o Crash and Burn, a gold skirt from Forever 21, a white boyfriend blazer from Nordstrom, a bag from Urban Outfitters and quilted black flats by Steve Madden. I love how the ombré shirt matches with the clouds in the sky, the necklace compliments the gold skirt, and the bag and flats finish the outfit off. Often times, an outfit is amazing on its own, but once you add a statement necklace, like the one above, it makes your clothes come together in a different way.

I want to give a special thanks to DailyBuzz Style for giving me the opportunity to be featured in this month's challenge! Also, I know it seems like I fell off the face of the planet last week, but I was terribly busy with work, planning a last minute trip to Coachella, filming a special campaign project, and am just now getting back into real life, ha! Promise to be better in the weeks to come. Lots of good things coming your way, so I am excited to share!!

Finally, if you like my necklace (and why wouldn't you?) and want one for your own collection, enjoy 20% OFF the Accessorize shop when you enter the code: LAUNCHUSA20 at checkout. Offer good until May 5th! I hope you all enjoyed the way I styled my statement necklace!

Blue Crush

Is it just me, or does my hair seem to have already grown out quite a bit since my cut? I feel like it will be long again in no time! Maybe it's time to start thinking about what to do next... Anyhoo, here are some quick snaps of a dress that I've been getting a lot of wear out of. Excuse the first shot where it looks like I have a tummy poof! I love the simplicity of the dress --the chunky stripes, the classic colors, and the skinny belt. While I can see myself wearing it in many ways (fun collared shirt underneath, sweater over top, layered outerwear), this is probably the way you'll see me wear it most. The shoes were a gift from LuLu's and they are easily one of my favorite pairs at the moment. They're not just easy on the eyes either! The chunky platform makes these sky high babies fairly comfortable, so they're easy on my feet! This week is a really busy one for me, but I'm excited to share with you what's going on when I can. Until then, hope you all have a great start to the week!

Wisdom Wednesday

"One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation." -- Arthur Ashe
"Rockin' Everywhere" Look book, LF Stores, Spring 2012 

You never know when the moment is going to hit you. What moment? The moment that lives in your dreams. The moment that changes everything. The moment. So, while you are busy dreaming up that moment, dream up your drafts on how you will get there and how you will make darn sure that once it arrives, you are ready, in every single way, to take it. And not just take it. Take it; run with it; make it yours. Success is such a loaded word, as I've often discussed. But, one component of being successful is being confident. Successful people know, confidently (and not cockily), that their dreams aren't just dreams...they are realities waiting to happen. And how are they so sure? Because, they're not just waiting for their dreams to happen. They are working towards those dreams each and every day, planting the seeds, making them grow, slowly, but surely. Successful people are confident that they are going to make things happen. Confident people are prepared to make things happen. And what about the "luck" factor? Well, really, what is "luck?" It's opportunity meeting preparation. The moment that changes everything often only comes once. You have to be confident in your abilities to seize the moment, but more importantly, you must be prepared enough to handle it once it is there.

Wisdom Wednesday

“When men speak ill of thee, live so as nobody may believe them.” -- Plato
"The Weekender" Look book, Love and Bravery 

Today's post is going to be a short one. I'm a bit under the weather and any minute now, the two spoonfuls of Tylenol cold & flu cough syrup I took will set in before I have enough time to write a coherent post. In any case, today's wisdom is a just a simple reminder to live a life you will be proud of when it's time to look back on it. In the end, I truly believe it won't matter where you went to college, what kind of job you had, how much money you made, or what kind of stuff you had. What will matter is the content of your character and how you treated others. So, live a kind life. I guarantee that when you are kind, good things will always come your way.  No one forgets a kind heart.
