Que veux-tu?

shirt: target
shorts: forever 21
belt: forever 21
shoes: forever 21
sunglasses: pac sun

It was all rainy and sad outside today, so I decided to post these pictures from last week when it was all nice and gorgeous out. I went into target with the intention of buying socks and came out with this top, which is so incredibly typical of me.
In other news, I recently purchased a suit from Ann Taylor for job interviews and the fall career fair and such. For those of you who are small and have trouble finding business attire that fits you, Ann Taylor is your place. The suit fits great and they have an outstanding petite section. It was very difficult to not purchase one of everything... in every color. I will be featuring this suit very soon on here, so I am very excited about that.

slow dancing in a burning room

shirt: forever 21
skirt/belt: forever 21
shoes: forever 21
sunglasses: pac sun
ring: forever 21
necklace: gift from a friend

Finally got the maxi skirt that I have been wanting. It fits perfectly too so I am pleased! Since this was the first time wearing this skirt, I wasn't too daring with what I paired it with. I thought that the basic white v-neck was a good place to start, but I am definitely excited about pairing this skirt with some different pieces and dressing it up and down.
Also, yes, I am well aware of my forever 21 addiction. They say that admitting you have a problem is the first step.

Shop til ya drop

So Tony and I had an adventure today! We went to a fairly large mall near our school. I have to tell you, it was mighty crowded! The whole back-to-school crowd was there, which was extremely depressing from my point of view. But anyway, back to the joy of shopping!
What I have discovered from my shopping trip was that JCPenney is like amazing! First of all, almost everything in the store is marked down! Like no joke. I got blank% off or blank$ off or buy 1 get 1 on literally everything I purchased. Also, they have really really cute things in both the junior's and women's departments. I highly recommend going there for your back-to-school or fall shopping needs! Here are some of my favorite brands that they carry:
This is the line that the Olsen twins released for JCPenney. Its really cute! Plus I have an unhealthy obsession with their style!
A really cool brand with a bohemian vibe to it.
Mango is a higher end brand that released a line for JCPenney.
 I can't wait to feature my new JCPenney clothing here on Chic or Something. Stay tuned!

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes

shirt: forever 21
shorts: delia's
shoes: forever 21
bag: H&M

So I think it should be fairly obvious by now that these are my favorite shoes! They are high which, as a short person, make me very happy! They are also very easy to walk in, in spite of being 4" high.
I am also very surprised that I have never included this bag in a post seeing as it travels with me everywhere I go! I literally carry my life in there. I feel like Mary Poppins at times!

Happy Friday!

Hide and Seek

shirt: forever 21
shorts: pac sun
belt: gap
shoes: forever 21

I rep f21 like it is my job! Oh my goodness! The blouse seems to be very well made however, which is pretty great.
I must tell you all that I have been looking for a button down shirt with cut out shoulders FOREVER! I was so happy when I saw this one. But, I did have to order it in a size too big. I was pretty happy when I got it though because I am able to tie the bottom in a knot, which I think is really really cute.
I was also being really lazy today and didn't feel like trying with my hair, thus the messy bun. In keeping with the lazy theme, I wanted to rock some tennis shoes because they are so darn comfy!

Have a wonderful day!

wild horses couldn't drag me away

"I never met a drop crotch I didn't like" -Leandra Medine
Apologies for the inadvertent goofy smile in these photos!
blouse: forever 21
pants: cheap monday- juliana drape pants purchased through Nasty Gal
shoes: forever 21
bracelet: juicy

I have recently discovered The Man Repeller (and by recently I mean yesterday). I know. Most of you that follow style blogs are going to be like, "OMG! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?" I, myself, am wondering the same thing.
I happened to stumble onto her blog yesterday and was immediately inspired to "repel" some men! So that is why I have chosen this outfit. Tony's reaction of "What the heck are you wearing?" strangely delighted me when he saw me this morning.

As far as what I did today in this ensemble, it was not very eventful. I went to work on campus and then went to the super market to get the makings for the tacos that we had for dinner (which were delicious).
I'm not sure if my relatively conservative campus community is quite ready for man repellant, but frankly I've decided to stop caring about that. That exact point is part of the reason why I started this blog in the first place!

That's all for now!

I know we are, we are the lucky ones

shirt: DIY
shorts: H&M
belt: H&M
shoes: forever 21
bracelet: juicy

Nothing brightens my day like wearing a new pair of shoes! Especially these adorable gold flecked wingtips from forever21. They were the perfect little eclectic piece to add to this funky outfit. I was also very excited to style my latest DIY creation. I am really going to miss wearing crop tops when it starts getting cold out!

Might I say its good to be back!

the love you seek and more

Finally, I am back with an outfit post!

shirt: H&M
shorts: delia's
belt: forever 21
hat: forever 21
shoes: target
sunglasses: pacsun
ring: forever21

This shirt was purchased intentionally way too big, so I have no idea what the shirt would look like on in my actual size. I was hoping that it would be long enough to be a mini dress, but alas no. I am still loving the baggy awesomeness of this shirt and I think it will look awesome with jeans in the fall.
