2 Years

Remember this unintentional post? Well it has occurred again, I got dressed not intending to have it chronicled here on FabAve but the fella insisted on having it documented. I think I’m rubbing off on him, he can spot cute outfit from miles away. I’m so proud.

Speaking of the hubby, this past Sunday we celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary. I’m so lucky to have found someone who loves me unconditionally and who wants to understand me. Man, I love him. Ok, I’ll stop gushing now. We spent the day exploring and just spending time together, which was very necessary since I’d been absent from our home because of Phoenix Fashion Week. One of the things we did was go shopping for each other. The second year anniversary gift is cotton, so shopping seemed appropriate. And you want to know whose idea it was? His! Told you I was rubbing off! And this is what I wore. See how I tied it all together. Yeah, I’m good.

Copy Cat Jo

I totally wish I could take praise for this outfit but I can’t. As bloggers I think it’s our responsibility to give credit where credit is due, so I’m here to say that the top half of this ensemble was inspired by this pin, which I’ve been pining over for a while now. I love the clean silhouette and the almost nautical take the look offers. I obviously had to put my own spin on the ensemble and did a little pattern mixing with the stripped top and floral skirt. For those faint of heart when it comes to a mix and match look like this one, add a neutral cardigan, blazer or trench vest like moi to tone things down a notch.

In the Trenches

This trench vest is a recent acquisition from Forever21. It was part of a mini-shopping spree I allowed myself to have for my birthday. I’ve been on the hunt for a trench vest for FOREVER, so when I spotted this classic gem I just had to snatch her up. And I’m pretty proud of her because she already has gigs lined up for the summer days to come. Something about a trench adds a little bit of polish to an otherwise bohemian outfit, as seen here.

And don’t you just love my scarf! It’s light and airy and absolutely perfect for the Arizona dry heat. I love Karen Kane because of the quality of her pieces, such well made items and lush materials! I scored this pretty scarf at the Arizona Blogger Conference. It was in our swag bag, along with other goodie. I’m totally lusting over many of the KK new arrivals right now and have to resist going on an all out spending craze. The power of being broke, I guess.

Like my scarf, this Big Buddha clutch was also a freebie. I won it through a giveaway hosted on the Go Chic or Go Home blogger community site. Are you familiar with the GCOGH? As the creators, Cynthia and Robert Brown, like to put it, it’s “Facebook meets Pinterest for personal fashion.” I totally suggest you head on over to the GCOGH site and submit your e-mail address via the invite request! You won’t regret it!
