Might as well buy it

Might as well buy it

 

Hello again dear avid readers,

I was going to title this post “What is in my bag”.. shopping bag that is, but I was concerned people would skim past it, thinking it was a post all about what is in my purse. And let me tell ya, the contents of my purse are not exciting. So I really want to discuss what is in my shopping bag/cart in some of my favorite online shops. After this post, I hope it will inspire you to add them to your cart as well, and once it’s there… well, might as well buy it.

Now I think today I am going to keep the writing to a minimum and mostly show pictures, but don’t hold me to that, please and thanks! I have a terrible habit of going through my favorite online retailers frequently and adding 67398 items to my cart, only to realize later that I have no possible way to afford all of these things (like I didn’t already know I couldn’t pay for them in the first place, ha). And then the worst thing happens when I get the dreaded email that says “Looks like you forgot something” from each store.. but no, I haven’t forgotten, I think about the 6 pairs of shoes, 3 dresses, and bathing suit every hour of the day!!!!! So this post is all about the things I’m barely surviving without, and will immediately purchase once I get a large influx of cash.

If you could all like not buy everything in my size though, that would be great, since I would still like to purchase all of this myself.. 😉 just kidding, buy it all up, unless its a size small or 27 as the last one, then it’s mine.. just kidding again. Kay, I will stop talking now. Happy Tuesday, see ya Thursday!

Xo, Ciera

Hello again you spicy mamacitas (and papacitos),

This post has no latin flavor so it would probably be best to ignore my greeting, but I was just excited. Today’s post is all about denim.. and a good white shirt. But before we get started I need you all to really focus on this here: low rise jeans are bad bad bad (mid-high rise is so much more flattering and doesn’t require as much pulling up throughout the day), so as a favor to everyone we are all going to promise to not wear them ever again. Okay? Okay. Rant over for now..

So as I was saying, today’s post is all about some good ol blue jeans and a white top. Ya really can’t go wrong with that combo.. unless the jeans are low rise, then it’s very wrong (Really done now, I promise). The right jeans are so so flattering and can pair perfectly with tons of different tops. Apparently this combo is even the official unofficial uniform of the Farley family. This group can really rock some denim (see photos below).

What a look, huh?! It truly is magical seeing everyone barefoot in a photo place in the mall wearing their best pair of denim.. Right? Although I do think I was workin those braids and that outfit, it is no longer 2002, so I have an updated version of this look for you, and a few options for some real good buys.

Here is my 2018 version.. super cute, simple, with a dash of spicy coming from those leopard booties.

Let us start at the star of the outfit, them booties babyyyyy. I won’t bore you with a long spiel about them since I have already professed my love for them a few times.. But if you still wanna shop them, use this link here. They are on sale for a third of the price I paid for them at Steve Madden!!!!

Prepare for lots of pics of this outfit.. it is my favorite outfit/picture combo I have had for the blog thus far! So now let’s go to the top, because why not. I love me a good white tee, top, blouse, etc. I am that girl that wears white past Labor Day. Sue me! But white is such a versatile color and can be paired so easily throughout all of the seasons. The top I have on here is a super duper comfy layering top from Nordstrom that is only $19!!

Aaaaaand finally, them jeans though. These would be my mom jeans. Surprisingly despite their name, these are one of the few jeans I have not stolen from my mother. I love me a good mom jean because of their tight hips/waist and looser hem and knee area. The rip placement in these is top notch too. These bad boys are from American Eagle, and easily a necessity for your closet.

Here are a few of my online finds for you to make your own look:

Money for you, and you, and even you

Hi pretty ladies (and a select few males),

I am so very excited for today’s post because it goes along with a giveaway happening on my Instagram! I just so happened to make my first (and only) blogging friend so far the other day, and we decided we would get a giveaway going for all of you to also celebrate this momentous occasion.

This giveaway is pretty dang good if I do say so myself. It is a $100 gift card to Urban Outfitters, and you should probably enter to win it! The rules and contests are on my Insta @ciera_farley. If you have an account, get over there and get to it, and if you don’t, maybe you should get one just for this.

To possibly give you even more incentive, today’s blogpost is all about my favorite picks from Urban Outfitters right now. These pretties are all under $100 too, so you won’t even have to pull out your own wallet to pay for them if you win the giveaway!

So my first two picks are part of this outfit! And first is a super cuuuuuute off the shoulder, ivory knit from Urban Outfitters. If you’re looking for a warm sweater to fight off the cold in the winter, this sweater probably isn’t for you, but as a knit that can transition into spring, it is great! Also, if you like to brave the cold for one hour blog photoshoots, this sweater will work for you.

The pants are a trendy pair of distressed cropped flares. Now if you ask my mother, these were not a love at first sight kinda pant, but if you ask me, I think they are so freakin’ cute, and just trendy enough. I absolutely LOVE the distressing on them, and I waited very impatiently to finally order these. I think they will look so cute in spring/summer too with a bodysuit and fun pair of wedges.

Now my shoes aren’t from UO, but they are Steve Madden and my newest shoe obsession. I have always loved cheetah print and have maybe rocked it past its prime, but I just can’t seem to give it up. These shoesies are adorable and pretty comfortable as far as a 4 inch bootie goes. The best part is leopard can be worn as a neutral with other prints/color, or be the focal point of an outfit to add a pop of sass. (They are even on sale!!!!!)

So here we go with some other picks! All pictures are clickable, so happy shopping! 🙂

Someone please buy these and wear them so I can live vicariously through you. I love them so much, but my thick thighs do not. 🙁
