Modern 70's

skirt: GAP (similar)
tee: Target
blazer: Banana Republic (similar
satchel: BCBG via TJMaxx c/o (similar here & love this one
glasses: Kate Spade (on sale 40% off)
watch: Fossil (loooove these)
bracelets: My Arm Charms c/o
pumps: Target (love these)

If you have been paying attention to the fashion world, you noticed that this fall it's all about the 70's. Although I'm not a huge fan of the era (so much fringe!), I can get behind 'everything denim' trend. Especially since I don't have to buy things like flares (they have been laying in my closet for almost nine years) and this denim skirt (from my high school days). And the fact that I fit into a skirt that I wore in high school has me all giddy. It also proves the fact that I wasn't the prom queen (ha!). 
This outfit was inspired by this look but I'm not sure how close I got. Do you think I look half as cool as she does in her outfit posts? 

P.S Don't forget today is the last day to enter the giveaway for two bracelets of your choice! 
Thank you for stopping by!

Last Minute Gifts That No One Will Know Were Last Minute

Last minute gifts are the most stressful part of Christmas but you can certainly pull it off. Here are a few ideas to those who have been waiting until the last day. Hope you find something special and don't stress too much about it. Pretty wrapping always helps the situation.

SPA CERTIFICATE: Everyone loves a little pampering and no matter if they're getting a full head to toe massage or just a mani/pedi, it will be appreciated. It's something just for that person to enjoy after stressful holiday season.

AMAZON PRIME SUBSCRIPTION: This is probably the best gift you will every give. Amazon Prime offers thousands of items with free two-day delivery to your door. We have it and I absolutely love it! Plus you get movies, music and games. I mean how can you beat that? 

MOVIE TICKETS: Going out to see movies at the theater is getting pretty expensive and those of us with mortgages and school loans can't really afford going out to see the latest flick. Sometimes it's nice to get out on a date or even go to a day time show by yourself. This will be one cool gift.

RESTAURANT CERTIFICATE: I consider these the best gifts of all. They save time when I have no time to cook, or when we want to go out for a special occasion. It's nice to know that we can just go out to dinner without braking the bank and have good time. Treat them to a nice meal and they will remember it for a long time. 

BEAUTY BOX SUBSCRIPTION: This is a great service that will send something new every month based on the characteristics you give them. The 3 month subscription to BirchBox is only $30. Couple of clicks and your friends will have a surprise in mail for three months. You can go all out and buy it for the whole year. 

xo, Anna

Fall Colors

Black Pencil Skirt | Modest | Mustard Blouse | Fall Colors | Happy Medley

<blouse>    <skirt>   <similar pumps>     <similar tote>   <necklace>
To me mustard, orange and black always mean fall. The warmth of is gone and we are in freezing temperatures now. You see, the blood in body doesn't think it's necessary to reach my feet, let alone toes. My feet are rarely warm and always have to have socks on. It's ridiculous because from the month of October to about May I can't feel my feet and after a while I got used to the feeling. 
I hope you are staying warm and enjoying sunshine! 
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Fall Plaid

Miniskirt | Plaid Scarf | Fall Outfit | Side Braid| Happy Medley

sweater: Banana Republicskirt: Gap (real, steal), scarf: Joe Fresh (real, steal), bag: (real, steal),   flats: Marc Fisher (real, steal)

I know that a lot of my readers range in income and buying potential. A lot of times, I only include only ONE option for the clothes I have one, but from now on I will try to include a REAL($$$) price and STEAL($) price. So whatever it is you're looking for, you can find it on here.

Hope you are enjoying your week because mine is going extremely well! Hubby and I got to spend a day together without baby at home and I tell you people, it's such a blessing to have family close by. We weren't planning on anything but it just turned so that Jonathan spent the night at my mom's house and my sister babysit him entire day. 

We were able to get some quality time together (ya know;-), lounge in bed, sleep in and have coffee together in the morning - all without being interrupted for one minute. Then we spent the rest of the day furniture shopping and possibly getting me a birthday present. It was glorious! I cannot imagine my life without my family and so grateful that we live close to both parents. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Summer Storm

dress: Old Navy (similarsimilar)
blazer: Banana Republic
flats: J.Crew
bag: Ali Express (similar)
This year summer has been very slow in these parts. As we were shooting this outfit post, a huge stormy cloud was approaching us. My sister was behind the camera so I told her to hurry up and snap some pictures before we get rained on. Few minutes later I could hear the rain coming our way and yelled at her 'it's coming'. She wasn't sure what I was talking about and seconds later we were drenched in a perfectly warm summer rain. As we were running to the car, I was trying to hide the camera from the rain drops and in the process wasn't very careful with the door, which slammed me in the face. Ouch. 
Today, I'm sitting in front of my computer, listening to the rain fall on the roof of the house, and enjoying the quite. It's nap time. Although the rain prevented me letting Jonathan loose outside, I love listening to the sound of rain in a perfectly still house. Now on to get some work done. 
Have a great day!

It wouldn't be spring without some rain. I'm so glad to see the snow gone and warmer days emerge. It really is amazing what some sunshine and warmth does to your being. Well, it's not totally warm here and most days it's still below fifty but still, there is hope. And as usual, spring brings along a huge to-so list. Everything from cleaning the garage to planning the vacation is on there. But for now, I have my red boots to keep my mood up (even in the rain).
