Fabulous Find Friday!

It's always amazing how styles and trends come back around. I am PRAYING that Doc Marten sandals stay a thing of my 7th-9th grade past and that I never experiment with Brighton belts again, but who knows what my amazingly bright future may hold. I have to say, nothing says 10th grade like Brighton.

I digress....I'm growing my hair out again. Not for any reason other than a change. I do this often. I grow it out....I get tired of the time it takes to fix it and then I cut it. I really like my hair short. I have pretty much always worn my hair short, but occasionally I let it grow for a "new me". My hair is just above my shoulders and I have been experimenting with the headband trend. What do you guys think of headbands??? My sister gave me a really, really cute headband for Christmas from J-Crew that is black with a skinny, sweet bow. And I got this darling headband for $3.80 at Forever 21. Look at all of the other cute hair accessories they have for super cheap...You can't go wrong!

So in my quest for fun headbands of course I hit up ETSY! I am so pleasantly surprised with what I found! I love, love, love these headbands and necklace. I think they are so classy and girly, and they would be the perfect compliment to a classic black dress or to glam up jeans and a turtleneck.

I would probably pair any of the above with my new favorite shoes that I got on SUPER sale last week at Steve Madden...


Today over at Kelly's Korner everyone is sharing their favorite shopping spots...online or in store. I really shop in a lot of different stores, but a few of my favorites would be Macy's and Nordstrom shoes and staple items, White House Black Market for jeans (they fit me well and I ALWAYS buy them on sale for cheap!!), Anthropologie for lotion, bubble bath, candles...anything I want to smell good. I just think everything in the entire store is darling, but I refuse to pay full price, so I have to wait until it hits the sale rack. :)

I have a very simple and classic style. I wear a lot of solid colors and I love shoes, handbags, necklaces, etc to add a little spice to my life. And if any of you know my mother...you know animal print is always allowed...actually, encouraged!

The leopard flats are adorable & you will wear them all the time! I found the cutest pair by Calvin Klein on sale at Bloomingdales but they didn't have my size. So I bought them for my mom. I'll have to look for the Steve Maddens because I need a pair!

I love accessories and head bands are really cute. I totally agree with your mother. I am a mother of girls your age and I would totally say that too. Take a pic of yourself in the headbands so we can see how cute you look. Good luck with growing your hair out. I've found that my hair ONLY grows when I don't want it to.
