Breaking The Rules

Tuesday, November 17, 2015





 |Dress: Honey Punch (Similar) ((I have linked some others at the end of the post))|Scarf: Old Navy (Similar- Practically the same!!)|Shoes: Sam Edelman ( VERY Similar!)|Purse: Kate Spade (smaller version) ((Similar color and size here))|Anchor Braclet: White Lotus Boutique (Similar)|

This weekend feels like a dream and went by like a blur. I actually had friday through monday off and was going to go home but due to different circumstances (mainly my parents knowing me too well and knowing I'd somehow get lost) I remained in Jersey. You know those moments where it just clicks and you realize God had you in his hands all along when you were being dramatic about the closed door? That was this weekend. 

I actually was supposed to be off work thursday too and the family I work for called me and said I needed to watch the kids all day. I actually took them to see the new Peanuts movie, and it was adorable. Charlie Brown having a crush..? That's me. 

Then on Saturday me and my friend went to this Pier Shops in Caesars Palace (Atlantic City) where they were having an event. If you had been one of the first to RSVP you got a goodie bag (which included that darling bracelet), free cupcakes and champagne as you looked around, the whole store was 50% off, and if you spent $25.00 you got free lunch downstairs. I mean how amazing. And to top it off the lunch was fancier than I could have even imagined with soup, tons of finger sandwiches, and pasta salad (a personal fav).. complete with dessert. And to top it all off I even saw another good friend randomly and it was like I finally found a cure for my homesickness, realizing that this is home. 

To be honest I wanted to buy the whole store, but my bank account didn't allow for that ((hallelujah haha)) but this dress by far was the best investment I could have made (for only $25 might I add thanks to sale) I can already see how I will dress it up with blush or chambray for the spring. ((Basically expect this to be a staple #sorrynotsorry)) And seriously who says you can't rock white in the colder months, because with this blanket scarf and sunny weather... I think I'm doing just fine. 

The boutique actually has an online store, unfortunately it does not include a lot of their adorable selections clothing wise but it does feature some clever shirts that would make amazing Christmas presents ((like my one friend adores their whiskey makes me frisky shirt.)) 

Without going into much detail, you know those moments when something happens and it makes your head spin, you're blushing all the way home (yes to quote Taylor Swift), and your mouth hurts from smiling too much? 

That was this weekend...
