I thought I shared all my long hair outfits but I stumbled across this one when I finally sat down and wrote a blog post. I have slipped through the cracks lately on my blog. Life has been rough, okay my motivation has slipped more than anything. I need to get it back. I find myself needing more ideas to write about so you all aren’t reading the same posts written six times. So with my 100 days of no-buy half way through and I am doing so well but I have a list going of what I want-will-need-to buy when it is all said and done. This list made me think about what are some of the items on your list. I also want to know what are some of fashion bloggers favorite fashion items. Fashion bloggers have their go to beauty picks and it is always interested to see which items they can’t live without.

      Hey Lauren!!
      They are comfy for heels I guess, hahaha. Much more comfortable then a crazy stripy stiletto though I love all heels.

      Hey Amanda!
      I realized the other day that I haven’t mentioned it at all on my blog so I threw it in for today’s post. It was easy for the first week or so then it got really hard and now I feel like I am in Limbo with it but I am a little over halfway through. Thanks I really like this outfit too I kinda threw it together when I was home having my sister take a bunch of outfits when visiting. Thanks for the comment!


  • I’m in love with the muted tones and stripes! That jacket and those shoes are stealing the show for me!

  • These heels are so cute!

  • Hope you can get your groove back…it is hard to always stay inspired! How impressive that you aren’t buying anything for 100 days?! Wow…I just don’t think I could do it…my Hubby would be thrilled if I did but I just know myself too well! #lackingbuyingwillpower

  • Look at you, miss thing! That red lip is just precious on you! I also loved how you mixed stripes! Too cute!

  • Very cute outfit & I love the jacket! Those shoes are super adorable as well 🙂 xx

  • This is one of my favorite color combos for stripes, dark with light. This outfit looks perfect on you! And I love that the heel of your shoes is glittered. Do you find it leaves a mess everywhere?

  • I should seriously do a no-buy. I have been TERRIBLE recently and don’t need a single thing! Well, maybe… haha but for real, I should try it and see how long I can last!

  • I love this outfit! It’s so cute and casual but I think the shoes are an awesome, unexpected twist! I’ve been loving EVERYTHING bw stripe lately…I think I know what I need to add to my closet 😉

  • Love those heels! Im upset at myself for not buying them when they were available. Love your lip color? What is it?


    • Brooke Ellen

      Hey Mary! I missed them the first time and when they came back in stock I snatched them up!! And I think it’s by Laura Mercier, it’s one of their red colors. Ive been really bad at remembering what lip color I throw on these days :/

  • I love the light color of your jeans!! And stripes are my favorite, you can never go wrong with stripes! Thanks for joining in on the Tuesday Fashion Party Link up.
