I went with a slightly different look for the wedding I attended recently in Ibizia (yes, I know I haven't written about my trip yet, but life has gotten in the way).  I usually go for a more whimsical and playful look for weddings.  I decided to go classy, lady-like for this wedding.  I usually reserve pencil dresses for the office.  However, I am pretty happy I went with this look for the wedding.  It could have been pretty reserved....had I not added metallic heels and a whole lotta bling.

And I added that pic of the Scot and me because he seemed a little annoyed that I was cropping him out of pics to get a better shot of the necklace.

And don't think I have gone super fancy on you with my J. Crew dress and Kate Spade shoes and earrings.  All were purchased off the clearance rack.  $70 for the dres, $50 for the shoes, and $15 for the earrings.

Favorite Fashion Friday #67

 photo FavoriteFashionFridaylogo_zpsf66ade9e.jpg

I  love outfits that make a bold statement, but don't make you look like a crazy person.  And The Real Arnolds crafts that balance so perfectly.  Pattern mixing AND a statement necklace?!  AND you could wear this to the office?!  Perfection.

Look What I Got: GemSugar Giveaway

I am super duper excited to introduce you to Gemsugar today!  I'll let the site's creator Angel give you the deets.  (Also, if you have time, search my blog for the word "super," apparently I use is A LOT).

Hi everyone! I'm Angel and I'm the "brains behind the sparkle" of Until recently, I worked in retail during college and would frequently have customers ask where I got whatever jewelry I happened to be wearing. This gave me the idea to start my own site selling jewelry at prices I would be willing and able to pay as a college student working part-time. With the positive reception of my site, I've recently expanded to include a monthly subscription service called GemBox. It is $24.99/month and includes 2-3 jewelry pieces based on style questions answered at sign-up. Want to talk jewelry or need help picking out a piece? You can catch up with me on our social networking sites or at

If you can't tell from these photos, I am wearing a crop top.  Yep, something I never thought I would do.  However, this is the only way I would ever wear a crop exposed belly.  I am in my thirties, there is no reason my belly should be exposed.  I think pairing a crop top with a high waisted skirt is the way to go.  You stay modest and appropriate and it's like killing 2 trends with one stone?  That turn of phrase doesn't actually work,but I think you get my point.
