So, how cute is my new long, sleeveless sweater from BCBG? And how about these adorable sandals from JUSTFAB? Cute, right? Right.

The sweater…oh how I love it. Awesome length. Perfect color. Loving the texture of it. It was another bargain buy, this time from Marshalls. It’s the perfect summer sweater for me since I live in Arizona. I can’t with to try it with shorts!

The sandals…oh how I love them too. Part of the JUSTFAB Spring Collection, these Nikko sandals are a new season favorite of mine. I’ll admit that I’m not much of an online shoe shopper because they’re just something I feel like I NEED to try on first. However, when JUSTFAB offered to let me try a pair I figured I’d give it a shot, and I have to say I was surprised! I was pretty pleased to find that they’re super comfy and soft. None of the jewels have fallen off yet and I’ve worn them several times over the past few weeks. Even Twinkie likes them!

Plus Size OOTD: Floral Kimono

In nearly every OOTD post I do I talk about some kind of bargain I found on something I'm wearing and this post is no exception. My new floral kimono is from Ross...$8.99! I'm currently on the hunt for some nice shorts that actually fit me properly so I can rock my kimonos in the summer without being super hot in the Arizona heat. If you have any suggestions, pass them along. Please and thanks!

Kimono: Ross
Tank top: Target
Jeans: Forever 21+ ($9.80!)
Pumps: Anne Klein (DSW)

Plus Size OOTD: All Black Everything

I'm totally loving my new (super cheap...$9.80!) black skinny jeans from Forever 21. I bought a few other colors too...dark and medium. These jeans though, fit like a total dream, and the price really doesn't get any better! Something else I'm loving at the moment are my Anne Klein kitten heel pumps. They're SO comfortable. I can literally wear them all day without any foot pain, blisters, or anything else of the sort. I'm going to need Anne Klein to make a red pair!

New Hair! Balayage Highlights

It's been a while since I did a hair post like this simply because I just haven't changed my hair in a long time. I decided to let it grow out...stopped heat styling to help the process...and it worked! My hair grew to my bra line and seemed nice and healthy (although it was definitely time for a trim). Recently though, it was just time for a change. I got tired of the long hair, it started to get damaged (like alwaysssss), and the more I looked at balayage highlights on Pinterest, the more I needed to have them. So...yeah...here's my shorter, lighter hair!

I was trying and trying to get the most accurate picture of the color outside. This is it!

And a length comparison! Like I said, my hair was at my bra line. Now it's a tad longer than shoulder length with choppy layers...kinda like a long reverse bob.

I totally love the cut and color so much so that next time I go in I'm thinking of taking it a little shorter and having my ends done lighter to get more of an ombre look.

Oh and I'm back to heat styling. I love my new look styled with a flat iron!

Til next time...xoxo
