Fun with Florals

     I have an obsession with floral printed everything!  Lately this had been evident in my skirts and dresses.  Floral prints are so feminine, pretty, and cute to wear.  Here are two outfits I wore this week, what do you think?  Do you like floral prints?


I know, "Could my tights be any blu-er?!" Haha, I don't care, I was in the mood to wear bright tights! :)


Floral skirt: Forever 21, Blue tights: welovecolors.com, Purple cardigan: Kohl's, Navy boots: Avenue, Necklace: Forever 21  


                                   Such a pretty pattern!






 I'm really annoyed with my bangs, they grew out and won't go to the side like they used to lately.
 Floral dress/Pearl cameo necklace/bracelet: Forever 21, Pink sweater: Old Navy, Belt: Fashion Bug, Brown Tights: welovecolors.com, Flat oxford shoes: Target
 I love this necklace, it's a little strangely shaped, but it's so pretty with pink, flowers, and pearls!
I love this bracelet too, more flowers!


 Pretty flowers on my dress :)
 These shoes are supposed to be brown but they look weird in comparison to the tights...



     Thanks for reading!  I'm sure I'll be wearing these floral items again when it's more springy outside, and probably many more!  I'm going to try to do a makeup tutorial post tomorrow in between writing papers and studying.  Is anyone else getting excited for spring fashion?  Please comment below and follow my blog!  Love you all! :)

                                                                                                                          Xoxo Gabriella

Jewelry/Accessories/Makeup Collection: Reorganized!

     Last month, I decided my accessory/jewelry collection was taking over my room and needed to be reorganized and all in one place (mostly).  I also reorganized my makeup collection and my vanity.  I didn't include too many pictures of the individual pieces, but if you want to see more pictures you can view my old post where I included many more pictures of everything here: My Accessories and Makeup Collection! I didn't really get rid of anything, just a few things that were really old or destroyed.  I did get a few new pieces of jewelry,some headbands, etc.



I found the T-bar necklace and bracelet holders and the spinning earring holders at a website called Gems on Display.  They have a lot of great stuff to organize your jewelery and I don't think they're too expensive
either.










I found the two individual necklace busts, the glass bowl for my rings, and the two glass jars for my bracelets and hair bows at A.C. Moore. (I love that store, it's so much fun!)








I also got that giant fake diamond at A.C. Moore for $1!  I thought it was a cute little decoration. :)
This giant basket was the only thing I could find that was big enough to hold all my headbands, haha!  I was going to put them in a glass jar but they would not fit.
I keep all my body sprays, lotions, etc. in this cute white basket (also form A.C. Moore).  
I keep all my real jewelry in these two jewelry boxes on top of my shelf.
I got this amazing black cart thing with ten drawers to store all my makeup in from Amazon.com.  I reorganized my vanity and I keep my favorites and stuff I use often out on the table.
I found that black and white patterned desk paper organizer thing at Marshall's and it's great to store my makeup palettes in.
I love this acrylic nail polish rack I found on http://transdesign.com/, I store all my MAC makeup on it because it's so pretty (and it's my favorite brand!).
The cute pink/black/white box is from Marshall's and i keep some smaller earring in there.  The dress form mannequins (the one above and below) is also from there. 
I keep my nice perfumes on my nightstand on these little glass mirror trays from A.C. Moore. 
I adore this taller dress form stand, I keep a few pretty jewelry pieces on it.


Lastly, I keep my scarves and some headbands on the back of my door.
