Forever Young

So, Forever 21 has done a lot for me and all you ladies and gents out there.  I think their price point is what really draws people in.  2 dollas for a shirt?  Sold.  99 cents for a ring?  Count me in.

They’ve evolved and gotten even smarter.  Kids clothing.  HTG81 to be exact.   Cause what parent doesn’t waste just as much money on clothes for kids as they do for themselves? I am partial to the boys clothing because I would prefer my son wear boys clothing, but they have really cute items for chickadees as well–here are some of my favs:

Deck My Neck

A great necklace can add that perfect POW to an otherwise blah outfit. I’ve been really stuck on long necklaces lately. I don’t feel like I’m choking and I just toss one or MAYBE even a few more and layer it up  over a plain t shirt and I’m feelin’ like a million bucks!

  2. Charlotte Russe, Multiple Strand Knot Necklace
  3. Boden, Flowerburst Necklace
  4. Etsy, KeatonBeadWorks Madrid
  5. Gap, Falling Leaves Necklace
  6. Forever21, Dangling Ornate Bead Necklace

$50 Fridays: Floral Fixation

Sometimes I like to go backwards and base my entire outfit off of accessories!

  2. Forever21, Floral Fixation Headband
  3. Forever21, Shimmer Ballet Flats
  4. Forever21, Knit Bubble Hem Dress
  5. Forever21, Leggings
