(not so) cold shoulder

My girl Andrea of A Spoonful of Sugar Baking recently suggested a closet challenge to me, and I was all in! I recently posted this top, sandals, and bracelets (pics below) and decided to challenge myself to re-style all of the items! #outfitrepeater  The result was fun and challenging…so of course I’m signing up for an all month closet challenge (with myself-ha!)! Stay tuned, readers! And have a lovely weekend!

Top: Ann Taylor Loft ($15 marked down from $55)

Pants: Old Navy (50 cents marked down from $35)

Bracelets: Alex & Ani (blue with gold beads), rest are handmade by me!

I’m waiting for my first Zaful order, but wondering if anyone has checked out Rosegal? If so, tell me your picks and your thoughts! I’m in the market for summer maxi dresses and summer suits! I never seem to tire of summer dresses, especially maxi dresses, which transition easily into fall with sweaters and cardigans. If you’ve checked out Rosegal let me know! I’ll post my first order ASAP! I’ve got my eye on some off the shoulder tops!

Happy official summer, readers! If you’ve seen my previous posts, you can tell I’m a huge fan of the Victoria Beckham line for Target. At my local Target, there were a few pieces remaining that went on super sale. So, of course, I did what usually happens when I’m at Target: I bought my groceries…and a dress. Seriously, I should avoid that place at all costs and yet… 🙂

Dress: Victoria Beckham for Target ($10 marked down from approx $40)

Belt: thrift

Tights: TJ Maxx forever ago

Shoes: Lula Townsend at DSW ($12 marked down from $79)

It’s #monthlymani time! This month’s theme was ‘Here Comes the Sun’ – perfect for summer, of course! My #monthlymani girl Kristi totally shone brightly with her take on the theme!  We even used the same yellow! #twinsies. Be sure to head over to Kristi to check out her mani as well!

Phew! It’s been a bit since my last post, but I needed a break to regroup and focus on one task over another! Most recent evidence of this is when I was trying to do a million things at once, and literally fell while crossing the street. …oh. my. Not only did I lose a little dignity, but I also managed to bruise and scrape a knee, wrist, and shoulder! As my dear friend pointed out (while helping to lift me up), ‘the universe is saying to SLOW DOWN!’ True. Story.  So, I’m slowing down a bit.

In the meantime, I’m also experimenting with new photo formats! Feel free to offer any feedback below!

I’m also wanting to try out the Zaful website, so I would love to hear if you’ve ordered from Zaful in the past!  I’ve had my eye on the trendier picks for the season, like the backless lace dresses  and the halter dresses . There’s also some off the shoulder picks, and some fab embroidered picks! Let me know your Zaful thoughts!

Calligraphy Cut (part 2)

img_5750

I had one more set of photos to showcase my Calligraphy (hair)Cut, and I just had to share them since I couldn’t choose between the photos! As other fashion bloggers will attest to, you have to be completely oblivious to the people around you when you’re shooting photos in wide open locations. “Oh don’t mind me over here…” Totally #worthit to capture the moment (and the haircut).

Want to know more about the Calligraphy Cut? Contact Salon Coccole for an appointment! You can also find them on Facebook and Instagram. You can also read more about Calligraphy Cut via their website. My hair was cut and styled by Donna and my girl Shana does my “ombre/balayage with a twist” color; both can be found at  Salon Coccole.

Sorry to say I am late to the #monthlymani party this month because I’ve been so sick 😦 But, the show must go on! And nails must be painted! Here’s my #monthlymani in a #mayflowers pattern.  I used the Caption Art Screens to stamp on a flower print. I’m still finessing the art of nail stamping, but it’s super fun and I definitely recommend trying it if you do your own nails! Be sure to head over to Kristi to check out her #mayflowers #monthlymani!

Please note, I did not receive financial compensation to post a review of my haircut. I did receive my cut complementary, but per Fashion Huntress standards, the views and opinions are my own! Oh- the outfit! Top: Ann Taylor, Pants: NYDJ, Necklace: Bauble Bar, Shoes: Sam Edelman

smitten in sedona

I’m finally getting around to mentioning why I was absent from my blog two weeks ago! My husband and I were in Sedona, thanks to our family friend very generously offering us a week stay there (<3 <3). I didn’t take any fashion photos because let’s be real: it’s hot and you’re outdoors hiking 24/7. I was humbled, amazed, and inspired by this magical place, and can’t wait to go back. Below are some photos from the trip. Until next time, readers! Have a fabulous rest of your week!

Is anyone else watching Grace and Frankie? Shout-out to Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin for being the most fabulous ladies in television right now, if you ask me! I love love love Jane Fonda’s classic style (and attitude) in the show. In an ode to Ms. Fonda, I’m popping my collared shirt collar and sporting a scarf today…and a ‘don’t take no for an answer’ attitude!

Fashion Huntress tip: Winter, spring, who knows anymore?! But I’m enjoying looking through the ‘end of season’ sales that are happening right now! The sales at J Crew and Banana Republic are both great right now, if you’re looking for any winter items. For boots, the sale prices at 6pm.com are reaching seasonal lows!
