Floral…stripes…organza…bright bold colors…it doesn't get any more perfect than this Target Xhilaration skirt!  I love this skirt for now, for later, for everything in between and know that I will get a lot of wear out of it.  What's even better…this is a gorgeous skirt, great quality, for a VERY affordable price…only $22.99.  Great pieces don't have to cost a fortune and sometimes they show up right in front of you while doing your grocery shopping in Target!  Not to mention, this skirt is perfect for a little pattern play too!

I finished this look with a gorgeous statement necklace from Luxe Statements.  The beautiful lavendar/pink/navy stones tied in nicely with the colors of the skirt!

AND…myself and some fabulous stylish Bloggers are sharing our love and appreciation for you by giving away a $400 Valentine's Day Gift Card to the retailer of your choice!  See the details below to enter…good luck to all and Happy Friday!  XO

What is Rocksbox?!

Rocksbox is an online jewelry subscription service that features 30+ on-trend designers including House of Harlow, Gorjana, Loren Hope, and CC Skye!  

How does Rocksbox work?!

1. Sign up by taking the "style survey" and tell your Stylist what kind of jewelry you like to wear.  The monthly subscription fee is $19.00 per month.

2.  Receive 3 pieces of designer jewelry handpicked just for you…wear them for as long as you would like with the option to purchase any of the pieces at a 20% off members-only discount.  Should you decide not to purchase any of the pieces, you just send it back in the envelope that it arrived in with a prepaid return label provided by Rocksbox.  Should you keep any of the pieces, Rocksbox will charge your card on file once they have received the other pieces that you chose to return.

3.  When you are ready for a new set of jewels, just send the set that you have back (if you aren't purchasing any of the jewels) and your next set will be on its way shortly!

What I love about Rocksbox?

  • Jewels are hand selected based on your style profile and the type of jewels that you like to wear and often times, it is a great mixture of both statement and delicate pieces
  • The jewels are moderately priced and they send pieces that vary in price range
  • 20% member-only discount on all jewels
  • Each Stylist takes into consideration the feedback that you provide and makes adjustments to ensure you are receiving pieces that you love
  • You have the option to request pieces that you love as well

Additional thoughts on Rocksbox!

  • I absolutely love this concept and I highly recommend Rocksbox to anyone who is looking for a monthly jewelry subscription service!
  • If you are looking to add some high quality designer pieces to your bauble collection, Rocksbox not only provides you the opportunity to wear it before buying it but they also provide you a discounted price that you may not find elsewhere.
  • You can invite friends to try Rocksbox and earn a $25 credit for each friend that signs up as well!

Going Back to Cali

| Shop the Post |

Headband: KRZA by Krystle Dawn (I can't tell you how much I LOVE this headband…slightly obsessed really) | Long Cardi: TJMaxx (similar here & here) | Black Faux Leather Trimmed Leggings: Macy's (similar here) | Camel Ankle Booties: TJMaxx (similar here) | Fringe Boho Bag: Target (similar here) | Druzy Necklaces: Wrenn Jewelry (use code "kbstyled" for 15% off your order) | Colored Stone Layering Necklace: Shop Emma Joy (no longer available but other gorgeous styles on their site)

This look quickly takes me back to our time living in Southern California.  We lived in Newport Beach, CA for almost 4 years and if you know anything about Newport Beach…it is this quaint beautiful laid back beach city.  When Krystle of KRZA and I connected, I was thrilled to learn that she lives just north of Newport in Huntington Beach, CA and that all of her headbands are handmade.  Her headbands are beautifully made and the quality is excellent!  Did I mention…I. AM. OBSESSED. WITH. KRZA HEADBANDS?!

I am also slightly obsessed with long cardi's right now…this cardi from TJMaxx is perfect for layering now and will be perfect as we transition into Spring within the next few months as well.  Completing this look with some gorgeous Wrenn druzy jewels and bohemian chic accessories creates an overall bohemian California laid back look.

"I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali, I'm going back to Cali hmmm, I don't think so".  Even if I can't be back in Cali, this look will take me back any day!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Set the Scene, Shoot with Sequins

Sequin & Tulle Camera Strap: Sam & Kate Design

You have seen them, you have probably entered one (or many of them), and you have maybe even won one…YES, I am talking about Instagram giveaways!  Well, I also enter Instagram giveaways because it is such a great way to be introduced to others that I (YOU) may not have otherwise known about.  And on occasion, I get LUCKY!

I had been following Sam & Kate @samandkatedesign ( from my early days on Instagram and they just so happened to host a giveaway with another shop that I also adore, @blisstulle (  I entered the giveaway and crossed my fingers.  It just so happens that crossing your fingers may just bring you some luck…you got it, I WAS the LUCKY WINNER of their giveaway!  Sam & Kate were giving away a sequin camera strap (I had been admiring their straps for some time) so I was beyond excited to have won!  The girls told me to have fun shopping and pick out my favorite strap so that is exactly what I did (what a hard choice it was as their color combos are AMAZING)!

I can't tell you how much I love this strap…it is fun, it is girly, and it is made of sequins & tulle…it doesn't get any better than that!  Taking pictures has never been more fun and I am always being asked where I got my strap from.  You must check out their website and their Etsy shop…they are so talented and their straps are so beautifully made.  Set the scene, and shoot with sequins!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Pink, Plum & Parrots

| Shop the Post |

Faux Leather Jacket: Dillards (no longer available, similar here), Pink Chiffon Top w/ Lace Detailing: TJMaxx (similar here & here) | Jessica Simpson Plum Pleated Maxi Skirt: Belk (currently on sale for $16.99…XS & L remaining, also available in black) | "Hidden Parrot" Statement Earrings: Bib Jewelry ($9.95...use code "kbstyled" for a discount off your order)

Although this outfit was styled and shot at the very tail end of Fall (hence the leafs), I am sharing this as I also love this outfit for Valentine's Day, which is right around the corner.  I just adore this color combo…to me, it is soft yet bold, feminine, & classy.  To soften the femininity of this overall look, I have added my go-to faux leather jacket, black edgy riding boots, and this amazing pair of parrot statement earrings.

What do you think about pink & plum paired together?!

I'm diggin' this Charlie & Chomper tee (it is soooo comfortable) and YEP, I'm frequently "rockin' that mom bun" and proud of it!  As busy as I am with two kiddos, throwing my hair into a top knot is just plain common sense.  Not only does it save time but it looks cute too!

I say…if you are going to wear your hair in a bun, why not make a stylish statement and let everyone know that this bun (YOUR BUN) was intentional and not just an afterthought?!  Mom's unite and "rock" your bun with pride!

How are you "rockin'" your hair for a quick, easy, no fuss look?!
