shop modern sequins.

Well hello there old friends.  Wow, I really got off the blogging train, didn't I?  I'm not going to sit here and pretend like I'm going to start blogging daily again, but I did want to pop by.  First off, I wanted to let you all know that there is now a "shop" as part of modern sequins.  yayyyy!  I've always wanted to sell a few curated items on this site, and I finally got it together and did it.  My mom and I made a few handmade goods (including some adorable 100% alpaca baby beanies) and I'm really excited to be sharing them with you here.  So, take a look HERE and let me know what you think.  

overalls part 2.

Well I did jump on the bandwagon earlier this year and purchase a pair of overalls.  And I would like to admit that I love them.  Yep, there I said it.  Hmmmmm, now my eyes have narrowed in on this faux leather version.  It remains to be seen if I will also take the plunge on these.  But while I'm at it, I also added in a few accessories that would be perfect additions to this outfit.

modern budget. 11.

Well hello there October.  You crept up on me.  But I must admit that I am SO excited that fall is here and I feel like my wardrobe and beauty routine are slowly starting to transition.  Ummm and when I spotted these booties online I may have squealed a bit.  I mean, I must admit that I haven't actually tried these on yet, but you best believe that I will be running to the nearest f21 to see if they are comfy, cause they are pretty darn cute (and only $42.80)!  Every year I stock up on these Target tights cause they are the best I've ever found.  Yeahhhh, here's to fall layers on a shopping budget. p.s. I always end up buying beanies from the guy's section.  I just love the slouchy fit wayyy better then the lady's versions.

When I'm heading out the door for dinner, I most often reach for a clutch to throw in all of my necessities (ie. lipstick, phone, keys, etc).  Whether it be white and subdued or a pop of color, I really can't seem to get enough.  Here are few that have recently caught my eye.  Eeeekkk, is it bad that I want all four?  A girl can dream.

modern budget. 10.

What the what, it's been far too long since I've posted a modern budget piece, so here I am.  After the fun filled wedding weekend, we hopped on the road and you know I just had to stop by a Target and try to snag a purse from the latest collaboration with Phillip Lim.  Unfortunately I was too late and they were all sold out, but I did pick up these booties and they are insane!  They will be in heavy rotation this fall.  And what would I pair with these shoes?  My two favorite looks as of late are the floral dress and black/white ensemble.  Hello fall time, I am so ready for you!

fall fashion.

Dear Zara, I want every single piece of clothing in your fall-winter campaign.  I just can't get enough of the pairing of black and navy.  Oh and hello floral dresses.  I've gotta make you mine.  Check out more of the goodies here.


the relaxed pant.

When I'm reaching for a pair of pants, I'm almost always drawn to the relaxed-slouchy pant.  I mean, is it acceptable to admit that it's kind of like wearing your pjs outside?!?  They are seriously that comfy and I can't seem to get enough.  And I'm really loving that bow detail on the black pair.  Come to me pretty please.

hats hats hats.

Are you more of a fedora or floppy hat wearing person?  I can't decide for myself.  I love both.  Depending on my mood (and how my hair is acting that day), I like to change it up a bit.  I purchased this fedora and am kind of obsessed.  I think it's a great transition accessory as we head into fall.
