What I Wore // a bit of hard and soft

Hey guys! I can't believe that we're headed towards the second week in May already, and it makes me a little sad how time seems to speed up the older I get. There aren't enough hours in the day, days in the week or months in a year! It's always fun to make lists and see how much we can fit into most days, and at the same time it's a treat to put the notepads away and just. live. for a day here and there:)
what I'm wearing:  necklace and ring - c/o Wrenn Jewelry // glasses - c/o forever21 (similar) // shirt - ross // pants - ross // heels c/o shoedazzle

For the last few years or so as I've built up my confidence and started wearing whatever I want, I've really loved wearing big jewelry that really makes a statement and stands out. Since the weather's started getting better though and I've moved from heavy and bulky clothes to light and loose fitting things, I've noticed myself gravitating towards the more 'dainty' pieces in my collection, so I was thrilled to receive some beautiful and delicate pieces from the lovely Alissa of Wrenn Jewelry. So pretty! If you haven't read Alissa's story, than click here to do so. She's a very inspiring woman. 

Thank you for visiting today dears, and I hope you come back tomorrow for a really big post!

  1. Such a great look! I have been experimenting with the feminine meets tough look too! I have this creamy chiffon maxi that works so well with tough tops! If you are interested you can find them on my fashion tab of my blog. :) I love this jewelry! Also, thank you for wearing leather leggings so long ago. I thought to myself I could never wear those.... but I think at the time you were expecting and I thought.. okay if she can rock them while she's pregnant (which you totally did!) I can at least try them out.... and I LOVE them. It gave me some confidence. So thank you so much! XO-Alexandra

  3. Beautiful boots and top! You look gorgeous!

  4. Way to rock this look! I love all of it! Especially the tiny bows on your shirt - so cute and just the right amount of detail.


  5. I think time started moving faster for me after I had my first child. The need to organize everything like meals and nap/play times, and the fact that working full time, I spend most of my day wishing I were home with my kids... that makes time fly by at an insane speed because I miss tons of special moments. Before them, I just lived my life day by day, chilling. So yea, time flies by now. I wish it could slow down tooooo!!!

  6. Great outfit. I always look at you hair, georgeus and so long - my dream.

  7. My first comment ever... I've been wanting to for a while though! Especially to tell you how you inspire me all the time with your goals and broad range of interests.

    After reading "My Transformation, fitness progression," I definitely felt empowered! I want to do the same thing after my second is born in the Fall...and even now I'm gearing up to research pregnancy exercise after I stop feeling nauseous! lol

    So, this post was lovely, and you're tone is SUPER AWESOME! ^_^

  8. Gorgeous ring! Perfect for spring :) xx

  9. I love pairing edgy things with something feminine too! Love, love, love the leather! I have a leather skirt that I love pairing with softer tops like my Free People sweater that has some rhinestones at the neckline.
