Persun Mall Wishlist

Falling into fall with Lulu's

2 of my favorite items in my closet right now are this darling gold, shimmery detailed dress, and these bordeaux booties. Both pieces are ideal for fall, and will definitely be on a constant rotation. If you could take a peek into my closet, you would see one of those bookshelves that reaches all the way to the ceiling, with all of my shoes laid out across it. Each shelf fits 4 pairs of shoes, and more than 2 of those shelves are reserved for my booties. I have a little problem with buying ankle boots, because I love all of them. Once it starts getting a little cooler out here in Arizona, I swear I pick up a pair of booties at every store I wander into. I've said before that Target and Charlotte Russe are my favorite place to find ankle boots, and while that still remains true, Lulu's has also been added to that list. This bordeaux/wine/oxblood color is my absolute favorite for fall, and I literally cannot stop wearing them.

What is your go-to color this fall?

Because what's better than a classic Little Black Dress?

I was at Target the other day, buying a leotard and tights for my niece's ballet class. As we were walking to the dressing room, this dress caught my eye, and I swear there was a bright light shining directly on it. My heart skipped a beat and I knew it had to be mine. A little black dress should make you feel beautiful, confident, and sexy, and this one definitely does all of those things. And not to mention, this dress cost me 3 times less than my last LBD! Gotta love Target! 

Dress: Target // Shoes: Elle [old] // Clutch: Clare Vivier // Necklace: c/o Bip and Bop // Bracelets: J. Crew Factory, c/o Hello Fab // Earrings: c/o Hawthorne Collection // Sunnies: F21

Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay tuned for my hair tutorial and an amazing giveaway tomorrow! :] Don't forget to enter the Truly You Giveaway and to follow via Bloglovin!

Faux Fur

Happy Hump Day, everyone! Today I am wearing a few of the items that I picked up during my latest H&M trip, including this faux fur vest. I'm loving H&M these days. They have some stylish, inexpensive clothes, and some great items for fall right now!

Oh, and my hair? Well, this is called the I-took-a-shower-and-slept-on-my-hair-and-then-woke-up-and-didn't-do-it look. But don't worry, I have a hair curling tutorial coming your way this week, so hopefully that will make up for today's hair. :]

White Coat Wardrobe Guest Post

Over the weekend, I posted this picture on Instagram, asking what you thought about this H&M faux fur vest. I really liked it, but H was not so sure about it. Most of you encouraged me to get it, and so I did, and I'm really excited about it. An outfit post on this look will be coming soon!

What are your feelings on faux fur vests? Yay or nay?? [Phone case HERE.]

And now I have a guest post for you, from the cutest blogger: Steph from White Coat Wardrobe!


Hey everyone! My name is Steph and I write a blog called White Coat Wardrobe! I'm so excited to be working with Victoria today! I have been following her blog since the beginning, and seeing her fearless sense of style and self encouraged me to put my own outfit ideas out there. I am a Physician Assistant Student, and I am currently in the third month of my clinical year. School and rotations keep me super busy, and outfit planning has been a great creative outlet for me!

My style represents a modest, working woman who is not afraid of color or current trends! I live on student loan money, so my style choices are also very budget-conscious. I believe in building a wardrobe filled with versatile pieces that speak to you! Personal style should be an expression of YOUR personality, not necessarily what is popular or cool with everyone!

I also write about my clinical experiences and the trials and tribulations that come with the hectic schedule of graduate school. I love meeting new people through this wonderful world of blogging, so I hope that you will stop by and say "hey!" and don't forget to follow along via Bloglovin!! Thanks for having me, Victoria!


Thanks Steph! And don't forget to enter the Truly You Giveaway!!

Do you ever have one of those days that is just a good day? Today is definitely one of those days for me. This morning I didn't have to go into work because poor Abigail was sick. And while I feel bad for that cute little niece of mine, it's always nice to have an unexpected day off! As if that wasn't good enough, H and I walked out the door this morning to take pictures, and it was 59 degrees out! 59 DEGREES. I almost cried. Fall is getting closer and I can't even handle it. Over the weekend we bought one of those Glade plug-ins with a Pumpkin Spice scent, and now our apartment smells like fall too! Seriously just a fabulous day.

To add to all of the goodness mentioned above, I'm just dying over my new blog design by my girl, Aubrey. Make sure to check out her design site if you're looking for a new blog design! My favorite thing of my new blog design is the tabs on my sidebar labeled "Fashion" and "Beauty." When you click on them, it will show you all of my fashion/beauty posts. Seriously obsessed!

Top: J. Crew Factory // Pants: c/o Recycled Consign and Design [similar] // Shoes: Charlotte Russe [similar] // Clutch: Clare Vivier // Bracelet: c/o Bip and Bop // Sunnies: F21 

I also want to take a minute to rave about these harem pants, because while H is a little on the fence about them, I love them! I love the metallic, shimmery fabric in these, because while they are incredibly comfortable, I feel like they look more dressy than pajamy pants-y, you know? What do you think? Do you love or hate this trend?

Thanks so much for reading, and don't forget to enter the Truly You Giveaway!

Wendy's #6SecondsFlat

H works out in Chandler, which is about 35 minutes away from where I work. But sometimes I like to drive out and meet him for lunch, because if you couldn't tell, I'm kind of obsessed with him. Anyway, today we went to Wendy's for lunch and tried out their new Asiago Flatbread sandwich and OH MY GOSH I am obsessed. I'm not much of a fast food lover [besides Taco Bell and Del Taco] but sometimes my busy schedule just doesn't permit time to prepare a nice healthy meal, and I find myself grabbing something on the go. Wendy's seriously blew my mind with this new sandwich, and plus, the Smoky Honey Mustard has only 370 calories! [I've already gotten it twice this week, and I definitely see a 3rd visit in my near future! :]

[I forgot to get a picture until I was almost done with it. Oops. ;]

And now for the good part... Wendy's is hosting the #6SecondsFlat Sweepstakes, where 6 seconds could win you $6,000. Tell Wendy’s what you think about their flatbreads in a Vine or Instagram video then send it @Wendys (through twitter, Instagram or Vine) with the #6SecondsFlat hashtag and my custom hashtag #wendysFF. Each week of September, one lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive a $6000 prize. Visit the sweepstakes landing page for more information and check out some of the other videos HERE.

So for date night this weekend, I highly recommend you all heading out to your local Wendy's and trying out their new Flatbread Chicken Sandwiches! I promise you will not regret it! [And if you do, please let me know what you think of it!] Oh, and here is a cute Vine of my niece Abigail trying out the Asiago Flatbread sandwich! :]

**Thanks to Wendy's for sponsoring today's discussion
Thanks so much for stopping by and for welcoming my fabulous sponsors!

BTB: Bring Those Booties

Good news: my back feels wonderful again [with the occasional sharp pain if I make a quick movement or take a deep breath] but I'm happy to be over that. I really don't know how one goes about popping a rib out, but I don't advise it. ;] Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts in my behalf. 

Anyway, I'm absolutely loving this herringbone vest. It is the perfect staple for fall/winter, and even though it was a hassle to find it in my size [I literally called like 30 stores to find it], it was worth it! You will definitely be seeing a lot of this as it gets colder. This vest is from J. Crew Factory and around $100 [I got mine 40% off] but if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, I linked some similar pieces that I found at Old Navy and Walmart! 

[Oh, and if you're wondering about the title of this post, it's something that H and I say all the time after hearing it on an episode of The Office. BTB: Bring. That. Booty. ;]

Top: J. Crew Factory // Vest: J. Crew Factory [similarOld Navy, Walmart] // Pants: c/o Aeropostale // Bag: London Fog via TJ Maxx // Booties: Target [similar] // Necklace: c/o Hello Fab // Bracelet: c/o Hello Fab // Sunnies: F21

I absolutely LOVE wearing booties during this time of year. My favorite places to find stylish, yet affordable booties are Target and Charlotte Russe! [And CR has a "buy one get one for $15" deal right now!] Here are some of my fav Target and CR picks: [I am purchasing that first pair as we speak ;]

Thank you so much for reading and for leaving such sweet comments. I really do read them all! :] Stay updated: Bloglovin // Instagram // Facebook // Pinterest // Twitter

Hello Fab

So yesterday I went to the chiropractor to see what was wrong with my back, and apparently one of my ribs had popped out of place! I don't know how, but man it sure was [IS] painful. He popped it back in, but it's still hurting quite a bit. And let me just tell you-- this is the worst kind of pain that I have ever experienced. Not to sound dramatic, because I know there are people out there with problems much worse than this, but basically it hurts to stand, sit, lay, cough, yawn, pick things up, stretch, breathe, and move. So hopefully the pain goes away soon so I can get back to normal!

Anyway, I wanted to share this quick picture with you today because I just wanted to reaffirm my love for HelloFab. Seriously, this tee is my favorite [and I really mean favorite. I will never get rid of this. QUOTE ME] because it is so stylish and so comfortable at the same time. I feel dressy without actually getting dressed up. And this necklace? No words.

Top: Hello Fab // Necklace: Hello Fab

PS -- did you all grab some new Philip Lim for Target pieces this weekend? By the time I remembered, they were sold out of the bag I wanted online and in all the stores around me, but my girl Jacqueline picked up THIS bag for me and shipped it to me. I should be getting it soon and can't wait to style it!

PPS -- did you hear that you can finally shop TJ Maxx online?? I love TJ Maxx, because I love finding designer pieces at a great price, so make sure you head on over!
