"Help me pick an outfit" "First of all, you don't pick outfits they pick you"

- Tituss Burgess from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

So true.
When this tan striped mix came into my mind, I was so excited with the bits that match
and the whole flow of the outfit, it definitely picked me.




What I Wore: glasses- EyeBuyDirect "Providence", lips- Rimmel Kate Nudes "47", earrings- Hilary's Cutie Crafts, top & sweater- thrifted, pants- H&M, loafers- Target


Love these Hello Kitty cookie earrings!


Do you feel like certain outfits just "pick you"?

Stopped by Mas in West Chester, PA for some margaritas and fajitas!
Perfect for Taco Tuesday!

Added two songs to my Spotify 2016 playlist,
both veryyyyyy  different from each other but I've been listening to both

Sunday Shopping: Kenzo x H&M revisited

I was very excited to check out the Kenzo x H&M collab when it released a little over a month ago,
I picked my favorites & made sure my students were doing group work 
so I could hop on and place an order! 

Of course, the website was on overload! 

I LOVE designer collections for less- although this is only my second H&M collab,
 I got a few items from the Isabel Marant pour H&M in 2013
{also see my comparison between Target collections and Kohl's collections HERE}

I like H&M collections but they tend to have a higher price point
 that make it unable for me to get the items I want
and I am forced to get a few lower priced items,
 while wishing for a dress that is still priced at $200+

I finally got in and was pumped to see that Iman and Chance the Rapper were the ambassadors
for this collection
 I am obsessed with Chance, seriously been on repeat from my 2016 Playlist...

I decided on two items, and scored both online!


I also made sure I checked out the collection in person in NYC:

This was where I filmed this infamous boomerang video of my mom:

They were still fully stocked even after a few days of the release,
but only in a few stores, the Times Square location didn't have any pieces.


I got to see this blouse in person before it arrived and was happy that I ordered the size I did!
& was so excited to wear it!

I love the pattern and the beaded tigers on the ruffle collar



What I Wore: glasses- c/o Faniel via 10/10 Optics, lips- MAC "Viva la Glam II", top- Kenzo x H&M,  pants- Loft, loafers- thrifted




Speaking of H&M, I am obsessed with their holiday commercial with Wes Anderson:


In other mini Sunday Shopping news, since I have been very good lately:
#1: These infinity plaid scarfs from Five Below are a STEAL at $3.
I got the tan and red one and I am so happy since I wanted the blanked scarf in this color pattern,
 but it never looked good on me, so I gave it to my sister Silvia who has been rocking it!

#2: My bracelet from High Strung Studios that I blogged in this Sunday Shopping arrived and I LOVE IT! Perfect addition to my arm party =)

Happy Sunday Funday,
looking forward to cuddling up with my hubby and puppies
and watching some Walking Dead!

Sometimes Arnold is like the Walking Dead as he chews on Maggie...

I love all of Spirit of Aine's creations,
especially her sugar skull ornaments in the middle.
She also has blank ones that you can paint and design as a craft at a party,
such a cute idea!

I want this sugar skull from Gypsy Warrior:

I love these monster ornaments from littlepunkpeople:
