WE MOVED!

Sorry to say but…. we moved! My blog will now be here http://pretty-and-penniless.blogspot.com/ and I hope you’ll all join me there because over here, your not going to be seeing anything new after this (sorry). I felt like I wasn’t reaching people over here. Like even right now I feel like no one will ever read this. And if you are reading I’m happy and hopeful that you’ll join me at the new web address. Nothing is going to change but the website I’m on. Same blog name, same interests, same me! It will just have some building blocks because I have to re-establish every segment, so it’ll be a short while but after that, boom! Same as over here (well I guess the layout is different too). And now I have a blog email you can reach me at if you have any questions or concerns. (That email would be: contact.pandp@gmail.com ).

Have a beautiful day!

Obsessed With: Tie Tops

Hey! Welcome back! I know this is a new segment, but I’m going to throw you a twist and do something a bit different this week. I’m going to give you some different outfits that go with my current obsession (tie tops). Enjoy.

 Outfits Information.

Okay, so here’s three outfits that incorporate tie tops. The first (left) is simple and perfectly casual for a summer day, just add simple jewelry and your set! Next (middle) is cowgirl inspired (blame my friend who gave me the idea by dressing like a cowgirl, love ya Molly), pair a jean tie top with floral shirts and cowgirl boots. Lastly (right) pair a cartoon Micky shirt with striped shorts (pretend your in a black and white cartoon, cause that was my inspiration) and add red TOMS.

Hope you liked this outfits!

P.S. Sorry about the absence of the Today I… yesterday, as you may know I was at a wedding and very busy! I’ll post that later in the week. Have a great day!

Summertime: First Day

Hey! Welcome to our summer segment! For the summer season I’ll be sharing my outfits for different trends and summer situations and a Polyvore outfit that (some what) matches. So for today (the first day of summer) I’ll be sharing my outfit for the first day of summer and a similar Polyvore outfit.

When I think summer, I think airy and light so thats what I tried to incorporate in these outfits. Enjoy!

I am wearing a lace mint dress (mint is hot hot hot for the summer), with a simple braid to keep my hair out of the way (and cause it’s actually warm out today! The sun got the summer memo). The I just added simple acessories like purple earrings and brown sandals.

So similar to my outfit above we have a blue sleevless dress is another hot summer shade (royal blue), and dainty sandals to keep your feet in style to! Next add a big floppy hat, I don’t own one but they make a statement and keep the sun out of your eyes! Polish the look off with acessories! A white bracelet, knot earrings, big bag to carry all the essentials and finally a big statement ring in a bright color. And there you have it! Outfit Information.

Hope you enjoyed these summer outfits and they inspired you to give your best to each upcoming season (actually I really only do spring and summer). I’m usually in shorts on the first day of summer (even if its raining) and a dress on the last (even if its raining), as you can see we get a lot of rain. ;)

So, what are you wearing today? Any fun plans for the summer? Comment!

Bold

Hey! Happy (not so much) Monday! Hope your having a great day :) I am busy busy busy but so close to a vacation, so close! (Ha).

Now that summertime is literally around the corner, its shorts and tank top weather! So I paired a blue tank with red high waisted shorts for a fun and bright color blocked look. Then I threw on a polka dot cardigan to add a pattern and keep warm (because its not THAT warm yet).

Hope you enjoyed this outfit and it inspired you to put a little spring in you step this Monday! Oh and we’ve passed 50 on our 100 days of fashion! Less than half to go!
