I wanted to start doing a weekend post just to wrap up the week and share some of the things I’ve been loving but haven’t shared elsewhere during the week, or at least expand on them more, and as a way to share some of the other things I love aside from clothes and shoes (even though today that is pretty much the focus). Probably will vary from week to week, but I promise I will try to make it fun!
Top Photos: Celebrating my 25th birthday last weekend! I wore a full sequin ensemble (see more here in an outfit post earlier this week) and went out for dinner at Aerzzo Ristorante in Edina (it was SO delicious)!
Bottom photos: What I’ve been wearing this week: Arm party with my new pave link chain bracelet (my friend got it for me and it is a complete knock off of the J.Crew one… I LOVE it). Right photo shows the bow necklace, bracelet and pave link chain bracelet, all gifts for my birthday! You can find me on Instagram here.
How cute is this coat from Forever21?! It is on sale for $25.99, originally $52.80. A cute, stylish way to stay warm for under $30? I would say that’s a steal!
Free Iphone/Ipad downloads from Eat, Drink, Chic… okay so maybe this blog isn’t new to you, but I just found it and I LOVE all the freebies. How cute is this scalloped iPhone background? Find more on her site!
Perhaps I’m the only one who didn’t know about this blog… but I actually found it through Pinterest and have been obsessed with Happily Grey ever since! Yesterday, I even posted an outfit that was a recreation of one of hers. Everything looks so effortlessly chic on Mary and I love that one day she is completely casual and the next day she’s really dressed up! Her style is inspiring me to throw together an outfit that looks just as effortless! Do you read her blog? It is now a daily read for me.

Rachel, I came across happily grey’s blog recently and fall in love with her versatily too.
Did you get the light pink coat, its super cute 🙂
RachelFebruary 3, 2013 at 1:08 PM
Ani, funny story! I had no intention of buying it even though I was obsessed when I made this post. Yesterday I went to the Mall of America with my little sister and saw the coat in real life (even better) so yup, I BOUGHT IT! 🙂 It’s amazing!

Hey are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and
set up my own. Do you need any html coding expertise to make your
own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
