When clothes just seem to speak your language

Do you ever have the experience of shopping in store or online and you just think to yourself, “That is SO me!” when you see an item? Honestly, it is one of my favorite parts about shopping! It doesn’t always happen, but when it does it is like pure bliss. That is how I feel about basically this entire outfit.

Decorating with Betsey Johnson and Kleenex

I’m showcasing the new Kleenex Brand Ready to Care Collection by Betsey Johnson as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars. #KleenexBetseyStyle

Exactly one year ago, I was in New York City celebrating with Kleenex Brand. They had just announced their first collaboration with a designer and I was able to go to their big reveal with Isaac Mizrahi. It was such a fun experience! Being there and working with Kleenex before my trip, I really came to appreciate Kleenex as a company more than I ever had before. I have always been an avid Kleenex fan, but I really loved them after that trip. Imagine my excitement when I found out that one of my favorite companies (Kleenex) teamed up with my very favorite designer this year, the Kleenex Brand Ready to Care Collection by Betsey Johnson!

Words really can’t express just how perfect all of these designs are for my home decor. They have fit in seamlessly. I love that Kleenex has designs like this that fit in perfectly with real lifestyles. A Kleenex box can sit out on a table and feel like a piece of decor, instead of an eyesore.

Casual top with fancy skirt on www.girllovesglam.com

 Let me start by telling you how obsessed I am with this look. I adore how a casual t-shirt can pair with a big, fluffy, fancy skirt. This shirt and skirt pair perfectly. Once the accessories are added, everything comes together like a match made in heaven. I also love it when my photographer has the crazy idea of doing a photo shoot in the middle of a skate park. I mean, who does that? I stood in the middle of the skate park as teenagers did kick flips and 50/50 grinds around me. I got some strange looks, but it was totally worth it in the end. I love how these photos turned out with all of the concrete around. Ann knows what she is doing and I am so grateful for her for her vision!

Gold Foiled Heart Tee from Style Lately on www.girllovesglam.com

 Let’s talk about the shirt first. I love how shiny the gold heart is on this shirt. It is perfect because it is easy to dress up or dress down. It would be cute with a pair of jeans, with leggings and a long cardigan, and with a fancy skirt! This shirt is from Style Lately. You can find it, HERE.

Polka dot Betsey Johnson Purse

The purse was a purchase from my trip to NYC. I got this lovely at Century 21. I knew I loved it from the moment I set eyes on it from across the room. As soon as I saw who made it, I knew that it was destiny. This is a Betsey Johnson purse. I have Betsey Johnson luggage that I already love so I knew I needed this purse too. It has already become the best purse I have ever owned in my entire life. It is perfect in every way. The bracelet is from Apple of My Eye (it is sold out, but they have other gorgeous bracelets too).

t-shirt with fancy skirt. The perfect look for spring.

 The skirt came from Romwe. I have coveted over that skirt for a long time. I finally decided to bite the bullet and get it before it was gone. It totally reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I feel like I could party right along with the Mad Hatter. It brings a lot of whimsical qualities to every outfit I style it in. I love it! The shoes are from Aldo (6 years ago). There are some similar ones HERE. I wore these shoes on my wedding day. I still love them to this day.
