 My boyfriend and I went on a mini road trip yesterday and I dressed for comfort. Maxi dresses are my favorite car clothes as they are a great alternative to being wrapped in a blanket. I brought my trusty A&F jean jacket that has been in my closet for over ten years and wore a colorful beaded necklace to brighten up the outfit. Can you spot my new favorite way to wear my hair?

Just a few quick snapshots today via my trusty phone. After spending the afternoon laying out, I needed to run some errands. I ended up belting my swimsuit coverup and adding colorful jewelry for a casual, bright summery look. I am obsessed with my starfish earrings and my new bauble bar bracelets and this adorable anchor ring that adds a nautical touch.

Every closet has at least one of those “Yeah…I really own
that” pieces. 

What is a “Yeah…I really own that” piece you might ask? It
is a piece of clothing that you purchased at some point in time and are not
really sure why. At the time of purchase it seemed like a great idea, but
eventually you forget all of the reasons why/how it made its way into your
closet and are left with only feelings of buyer’s remorse or embarrassment. You
would think these would be the first things to go when you have a major closet
purge, but for some reason or another you just can’t let them go.

Introducing the “yeah…I really own that” monster hiding in
my closet…..The Miley Cyrus Playsuit.

I’ve never been one to shop at Wal-Mart, but a few years back when the Miley Cyrus line came out I had to take a peak. For some reason, this romper and it’s price tag jumped out at me and yes, you guessed it, it came home with me. Fast forward 2 years later and here it is, emerging from the depths of my closet for the first time. 

Determined to make it work, I paired it with a blazer, wedges, a skinny belt and a top knot for a more sophisticated look. I’m still not sure how I feel about it and it might be on it’s way to a better home soon, but what do you think?? 

Do you have a “Yeah…I Really Own That” piece of clothing?

PS the boyfriend got me this necklace as a gift for Christmas and I wear it all the time. He did good huh?!?

PS#2 I stopped by Bath and Body Works for their semi-annual sale (which I’m a total sucker for, I might add) and picked up some of my favorites for a steal! Among my favorites…this coconut lime verbena candle that smells like summer and body mist and shower gel in my new favorite scent, Dark Kiss.

Did you pick up anything at the sale?
