Stating the Facts

KA3_5389Another Monday, you guys. I actually feel kind of bad complaining about my Monday’s when I don’t have class, but they suck nonetheless! Plus, they’re spent finishing all of the crap that I didn’t complete over the weekend. BUT ANWAYS, I’m back with another post with Happiness Boutique and I continue to be OBSESSED!KA3_5395I first introduced Happiness Boutique on the blog last week with this post, and this is the second pair of earrings that they sent over. While the ones from last week were all white, I love these because of the bright bursts of color, and the pricing ain’t bad either (less than $17)!

Most of the prices retail for less than $22 and one of my favorite things is that they offer free shipping! There’s also customer rewards program and buyers can earn points by purchasing products, writing reviews, tagging them on Instagram and several other ways! The quality of the pieces is amazing, and you can read about just how fond I am here.KA3_5375 KA3_5384I’m a firm believer in adding either a statement necklace or pair of earrings in order to spice up your outfit… it really does make all of the difference! Speaking of outfits, this one resembles pretty much what I’ve been wearing lately since the temperatures cooled down (even had to throw on a jacket this weekend!).

I love throwing on a cute and comfy sweater on top of jeans or leggings, and the added bonus is cute shoes 🙂 The lace up trend has been so huge these past few months, and I had been endlessly searching for a pair, but they were all too expensive.KA3_5423When I saw that Topshop had a pair for only $45 ($40 with student discount!!), I jumped on these immediately! Of course they rarely leave my feet, and they’re actually pretty comfortable! I’ve been considering these leather ones, so let me know what you think!

Sweater: H&M // Jeans: Gap // Earrings: c/o Happiness Boutique // Flats: Topshop (sold out, but similar here, here and here) Bag: Longchamp
