We Aim to Please


New floral blazer – c/o Pop Couture, New necklace, bracelet – c/o Oia Jules, clutch – Asos, shorts – Pacsun, heels – Boutique 9, camisole – Aeropostle?, watch – Style and Co., bangle bracelet – c/o Trend Essentials

I went for a crisp, feminine look, a little casual but a teeny bit fancy too because patent heels and a blazer always dress anything up  Please note that because of the shorts, this is not really a work appropriate outfit though, a pencil skirt or slacks would be much better for a professional atmosphere!

I don’t know if you can tell but the floral blazer from Pop Couture is very soft— it’s made out of cloth, or cotton more specifically. I love how fitted and soft it is! I’m also wearing a necklace and bracelet from Oia Jules, the lovely jewelry boutique on Etsy! They are both made with the Amethyst, one of my favorite stones, mostly because it is purple. I wish it was a richer color, but as a soft gray purple it comes across as a sort of mature, calm color which is good too.

If you know where my post title is from – well then I take it you’ve read the book(s) and what do you think of them? I personally have mixed feelings, such as too much repetition, not enough plot but intriguing characters and kind of amusing overall. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for the Romwe giveaway winner!! Thank you all for entering and a big CONGRATS to Geraldyne! 


The Akira representative that keeps updating me on the scoring is ever optimistic that I have a chance in their Facebook contest but as I mentioned in my May 30th post, I am even more behind at 76 votes from 1st and the contest ends in 2 days. So this is probably the last chance I have to ask that you please vote for me, and don’t forget you can vote everyday ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!!! xoxo

    Oh, you're looking great! This necklace is awesome! Yeah, you're right…I agree about the repetition thing, I feel like I've read the same scene again and again, but for some weird reason, I like it haha! And I can't put the books down..SO weird. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Love your blazer! It's so cute! And I totally know where your title is from! I just finished the first book. Totally agree with you I have mixed feelings. Where on one hand it's kind of interesting I feel like it's super predictable. I'll most likely read the next couple of books but I'm pretty sure I know exactly what's going to happen…lolxxGiovannawww.oliveandanarrow.com
