Thursday Weekend Announcements:
Sorry, folks!  When I got back to Denver, I hit the ground running HARD and I've been barely able to catch my breath.  I'm very much looking forward to a calmer week ahead, in which blogging will be a top priority!  Here's some of the stuff that's been making up my bonkers schedule, including possibly the coolest blog related opportunity I've gotten yet!  Anyone else having a bananas crazy summer too??
  • New Just Shair video!  We discuss bad lyrics in a multi-part series on bad lyrics (looking at you next...hip hop) that probably every last one of you can agree with and laugh at.  This week it's general top 40 hits.  I mean, sounded like "Jeremy" spoke something important, so why did you mumble your words, Pearl Jam?  And WHY did the Spice Girls proclaim that "if you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends?"  Like...ew.
  • I've made two videos for the blog's YouTube channel over the past week; I review a brand that's my go-to for necklaces (Punky Pins) and I unbox my latest ModCloth box in the second video.

ModCloth Unboxing
  • And finally, exciting news...a few days ago I got to model for Glo Minerals make-up for some upcoming fall products that will be released in the fall ;)  Stay tuned...!

All About the Outfit: This skirt is from 1138 Clothing.  It's a treasure map and I totally love it.  I own a My Little Pony Jumper from them and always enjoy looking through their store.  A lot of their prints are based off of comic book and super hero stuff, which isn't really my jam, but it's fun to look at.  And there's always at least 5 items I want despite the comic book heavy options, so clearly there's something for everyone!!

Style Details:  I wanted to play with neutrals a bit for this look, but with some femininity in pale pinks too.  And my green brooch was just fun to add to make something POP.

Top- Forever 21
Necklace- DSW
Brooch- Deer Arrow
Bag- Kate Spade
Skirt- 1138 Clothing
Shoes- Bamboo brand from ModCloth (sold out but currently available at Oblong Box Shop)

Music Time! I like Bruno Mars.  There, I've said it.  I've heard fellow music snobs criticize him to no end, and while I understand aspects of it...I can't. help. myself.  He's catchy and reminds me of the sensibilities of old school Motown.  I'm a fan, Bruno.  And, considering he has a song called "Treasure" it seemed perfect for a treasure map print skirt!

I hope everyone has an awesome rest of your weekend!!
