Floral Frocks with ModCloth

Hey Cats!

One of my favorite parts of spring is getting to wear fun dresses. After a few months of darker, heavier fabrics, wearing a spring dress in a bright pattern is a very freeing experience. I typically get a new dress for Easter each year, but this year I bought one for Ring Day instead. I had every intention of wearing it for Easter as well, but the more I looked at it, the more I decided it wasn’t “Easter-y” enough, so I wore one of my other favorite dresses.

If you’re looking for a new favorite dress this spring, you should definitely check out ModCloth! I was recently contacted by ModCloth to participate in their “Uniquely You” challenge for fashion bloggers. My job was to create an ensemble based around their gorgeous Bouquet of the Season dress, and I had so much fun!

I started (obviously) with the Bouquet of the Season Dress. First of all, I love the print and color scheme of this dress. That, coupled with the sweetheart strapless neckline makes it a beautiful, feminine choice. When I saw this dress, I knew I had to take the ensemble in a classic, timeless direction.

Next, I added the Charter School Cardigan in Ivory. I really love how a cardigan looks over a strapless sundress, and it makes the outfit appropriate for many different occasions!

wedges

For footwear, I chose these lovely Every Day of the Chic wedges. They’re a bit more modern than the regular nude pump, but still a classic style.

I decided to keep the jewelry simple and sweet. The Long-Awaited Earrings caught my eye because they’re not too fussy, but still dramatic enough to make a statement. I added the Knot a Moment Too Soon bangle to give the ensemble a dainty touch.

Finally, I chose the Garden Grandeur Clutch. I love the pop of turquoise this adds to the outfit, and how it gives this classic look a modern twist.

If you’re looking for a new dress this spring, head over to ModCloth! They have a great variety of floral frocks that will make you want to wear a dress almost every day of the week,

That’s all for meow!

Wednesday Pins-Day

Hey Cats!

I hope everyone has been having a great week! It’s Wednesday, so just two short days until RING DAY!! I can’t contain myself much longer. So for now, I’ll share what I’ve been pinning this week!

chairs

First are these chairs, found on indulgy.com I love the idea of a contrasting pattern in the same color scheme on the back of the chairs- it keeps it interesting without being too whimsical. I’m definitely keeping this idea in mind the next time I (okay, my mom) decide to recover a chair.

green chili casserole

Next is this green chili chicken casserole from Daydream Recipe. I made this for my roommates over the weekend, and it was SO GOOD. It was also incredibly easy, which I also appreciated. Even the leftovers are good, so that’s saying something.

mani pedi pairings

I’m loving this mani-pedi pairing cheat sheet from Lauren Conrad. I can’t ever commit to just one color on both my hands and my feet, but I don’t want it to look silly! I love these combinations, because they’re different but still complementary. My favorite is definitely the first, the pale pink and deep blue- I’ll be trying that out this summer!

cat ice

Last is this hilarious cat ice cube tray from Amazon. I mean, who wouldn’t want ice cubes shaped like cats? We have a dollar sign ice cube tray at my house, and I think the cats would be a perfect addition.

Splurge vs. Steal- Kitty-Cat Flats

Hey Cats!

If you know me, or if you’ve taken context clues from my blog title, you know that I LOVE cats. Love ’em. Not only are they precious little creatures, but they do whatever they want, just like me!

I have been dying for a pair of kitty-cat flats for some time now, but the problem is finding a pair that doesn’t make me look like a child or a crazy cat lady- which I am, but I’d like to keep that under wraps for a bit longer. When I found out that Nordstrom was debuting Charlotte Olympia’s Purrrfect Collection, I was ecstatic. I mean, how chic are these shoes? They’re an excellent touch of whimsy, yet still classic. I love the gold heel, and the little ears, of course.

However, when I saw the price tag, I knew they would never have a place in my single-girl closet, due to my college-girl budget. So I decided to hunt for an alternative! I immediately thought of ModCloth, the site for all things whimsical and inexpensive. I came across these Cat Me if You Can flats, and although they’re not exactly the same style, they’re still super cute! I love the burgundy color (which is a surprisingly easy color to mix in your wardrobe) and the little kitten just hanging out on the toes. The best part? They’re only $44.99, compared to $595 for the Charlotte Olympia pair!

As sad as it is when something I love is out of my price range, I really enjoy trying to find an alternative- it’s like a scavenger hunt! Just remember, you don’t always have to splurge, there’s usually something similar out there that you’ll love just as much!

Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

I know that the last thing I posted was also a Monday’s Musings post, but things happen- or don’t happen. The only really exciting thing I did was eat my weight in creamy jalapeno dip at Chuy’s with my prayer group in the middle of the week, so Friday’s Five would have been incredibly dull. In order to redeem myself, however, I have literally everything in my life happening this week, so get excited.

What I’m mostly looking forward to is Friday at 5:15 when I FINALLY get my Fightin’ Texas Aggie Ring! The Aggie ring is a huge tradition at Texas A&M, and one of my favorites. I will be the seventh person in my family to earn one, starting with my grandfather in 1941. Not only is this important because of my family, but because of the values the ring and the University stands for.

I have been looking forward to this day ever since I decided to become an Aggie. Sometimes I can’t believe I’m old enough to be getting my ring, but other times when I look back on the blood, sweat, tears, and 90 hours I endured to earn it, I’m more than ready for my little piece of gold. So, as I go through this week, I will be thinking about how much I love this University, how I have enjoyed my time here, and how honored I am to be able to wear the symbol of the Greatest University in the World.

That’s all for meow!
