Coachella 2012: Yes music, but mostly BOHO FASHION!

Coachella 2012 was certainly a place of great music and entertainment. But for the fashion lover, it was a place of Bohemian styled lookbooks of great fashion. The fashion looks so similar to Woodstock.

Easy, breezy, a bit “hippie”, and free.

Spring Maxi Dress and Accessories for almost NOTHING! Seriously!

I’m a huge fan of Forever 21. I know a lot of people aren’t. But for the prices, I don’t think you can really go wrong. Sometimes, all you want is a simple cotton dress. Why does it need to cost $100? I don’t think it does.

Certainly, there are items that warrant a high price tag, especially if it’s going to last. But I change up my clothes and styles frequently, -not to mention in MN we have serious seasonal changes, so I’m forced to change things up frequently! These items are not items I would ever spend a serious amount on. It’s just not necessary.

Wide Leg Style

I have loved wide leg pants since I can remember. I’ve been wearing them sinc I was probably 11. Even when they weren’t “in style” I still rocked them. Why? Because I felt like it. Wear what feels good to you, and don’t worry about look how everyone else wants  you to. If you style it right, even so called, “out-of-style” items can look great.

Style Does NOT Need to Cost You a Fortune!

Some cute, and lovely, and COMPLETELY AFFORDABLE outfits!


I’m a huge believer in spending my “cash monies” (yes that is what I call it) on certain things:


  • Things that are totally unique, that make my gasp loudly outloud in public, and the imagine in my head that I’m rolling around on the ground with excitement!
  • Items that are timeless (i.e. a nice gold watch)
  • Jewelry that I’m drawn to because it makes me think of my life and my family (gold bangles…so many have been given to me by my mother)

I’m sure there’s more, but I can’t think of any right now!

Can You Really Have Great Shoes for Less Than $35? Yes!!

I’m not a shoe person. I know! I know! You don’t get it. Every girl is a shoe person. Well, it’s jut not my thing. I think part of it is just that I have weird feet, with long toes, and terribly high arches so shoes just aren’t that comfortable for me. Anyway! My point is, because I know I wont wear most shoes all year round, especially here with Minnesota winters, I don’t like to spend much on my summer sandles. In fact, I don’t like to spend more that $25 on sandles!!

These are some cute shoes that can add a lot to an outfit, but aren’t great for every day wear (in my opinion). These are an example of great shoes, THAT ARE INEXPENSIVE!!  I know I wouldn’t wear them all the time, so spending more than this is just silly.


Are you a shoe person? What shoe is worth the money to you? For me it’s leather boots and my running shoes.


Spring Colors Aren’t Just for Flowers!

Take your wardrobe colors up a notch and add some of these light, but lively tones. Mixing and matching a couple of hues is perfect. Anymore, and you’ll be going overboard. My favorite colors to mix right now are peach and turquoise!! What are yours?
