Happy Monday, friends!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, and those of you back east made it through Hurricane Irene okay! You all have been hit by so many things recently, including the unexpected earthquake.

Most of my family and friends are back east in the NYC, NJ, D.C. and NC areas, and most were pretty lucky with just flooding, a few trees down and loss of electricity, but my best friend's grandfather's home, which is in the same town as my parent's, caught on fire and he lost it and a lot of memories in it all, which held memories for me too from growing up and spending a lot of time there when I was little, but he is fine and that is what is most important!

Thankfully, LA has been storm, and even earthquake free, but quite hot in the valley! It was 107 the other day and humid, which is not normal in LA LA Land! So, I put my hair up, partially still wet, which is why it looks darker, put on a pair of shorts and flip flops with a lightweight, cut out white blouse and headed out for the day!

So, here is my Look of the Day for you, with a super long title...hehe...complete with a hint of blue and some white with silver accessories!

*(minus gift item)


White Cut Out Blouse
Alloy - $24.99

Blue Shorts
Marshall's - $19.99

Silver Flip Flops
TJ Maxx -$14.99

White Tote Bag
Forever 21 - $14.80

Silver Scarf
Forever 21 - $6.80

Silver Bangles
Forever 21 - $4.80
(wearing 5 of set of 20)

Silver Knot Ring
Charlotte Russe - $8.00

Silver LOVE Necklace
NJ Boutique - Birthday Gift

Total Look = $94.37*
*(minus necklace)

This look came in under $100 from head to toe, including accessories, minus the LOVE necklace that one of my best friends sent me for my birthday in a darling silver love and box. I simply ♥ it and it just makes me smile wearing it! :)

This look can easily be copied for the same price or less, and if you add a little silver necklace from Forever 21 you could still come in under $100!

Oh and I promise to try to get more exciting background for my pictures soon...can't wait until my fiancé and I officially have a place together and I will be a personal photographer on hand to take them in different environments! LOL!

I hope you have a fun-filled week! I'll be back on Wednesday with the last installment of our engagement pictures from the ice cream shop and sun setting on the beach!
