HOPPY Easter. Haha, I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist.
But seriously, Easter is here. If you are going home to visit the family, maybe your parents are on their way in, or perhaps you snagged an invite to meet your boyfriend’s family.. whatever is going on this weekend, look fierce.
For today’s fashion find, it was back to Merge. I needed to score a dress under $50.
They had so many great Easter dresses. I’m talking appropriately fancy, nice necklines, great detail. Here are some of my faves.
This hi/lo dress came in two colors. Not sure if you can tell, but there’s lace detailing on the bust. This was a top contender for the week. Very flattering.
Such a great color for spring, amiright?!
I wanted to love this dress on me, but alas, I did not. I am including it because someone who doesn’t look like death could pull this off nicely. The dress I chose was similar, a little darker lace, and instead of peach, the ribbon was neon pink.
And some shorter, not so dressed up looks for whatever the weekend might hold.
Also, if you just need to polish off your Sunday look with some jewelry, check out Merge. They have the best selection of spring colors I’ve seen yet, including lots of MINT accessories.
Now, it’s a GREAT Friday.
Spring is HERE. Well, maybe more so after this weekend since the low is 48.. but it’s time to get down all your shorts, jumpers, and tanks.
You know who can help you restock your closet if your style seems a little dated? Or maybe you actually stuck to your resolutions and need to buy new clothes?
Welcome to today’s fashion friday blog. I’m going to let the pictures sort of do the talking today, so prepare yourself for an eyegasm. (Can I type that?)
I’m sure that list is going to be extended this weekend. The girls just went to Dallas for a big market, so who knows what haul they will be bringing back with them. On the facebook page, they mention a lot of different denims: cut off shorts, roll up shorts, boyfriend jeans, trousers, skinnies, distressed denim, light wash.
And in store right now, 7 For All Mankind Vintage Collection shorts and different styles of patterned shorts like these!
I’m including this picture because I like the purse.
That’s a reddish/poppy colored Rebecca Minkoff.
Obviously I’m a creature of habit – HELLO?! how many times have I been to Pine?! When I find something I like, I stick with it. So when I saw this new top from T-Squad: Stars, Stripes, and Whiskey. Uhh yeah. Come home with me.
That little tank top underneath comes in a bunch of different colors. I went with the bright blue/green because it made me feel like the little mermaid. (No, really.)
Aaaand lastly, my friend went with me to Pine yesterday, and got compliments on this shirt sheer long sleeved shirt all night.
That color blocking also came in mint.

It’s that wonderful time of the year.. NCAA MARCH MADNESS.
I know technically yesterday was bracket Monday, but I made mine this morning courtesy of PICKMYBRACKET.COM.
Defense and coed hottness tell me Michigan State is taking it.
WHAT TEAM ARE YOU ROOTING FOR AND WHY?
Forget spring break.. I am SPRING BROKE.
I went into Merge boutique this week for my fashion find, because well, money was a little tight. Everything in Merge boutique is under $50, so if you’re looking to score something awesome that’s not gonna break your bank before pay-day, I definitely suggest stopping in.
I had in my mind that I wanted to find something to rock for St. Patty’s day, but then I found this.
As I’m sure you’re aware, my photog skills are not the best. It’s a festive mullet dress (business in the front, party in the back) that has an orange and red top with a blue skirt.
Sadly, it has no traces of green.. BUT, it was the perfect drinking/crawfish dress for party on the patio.
I also LOVED that one.. so ladies, if you don’t have #bustygirlproblems. GET IT. Super flattering and a great cut, if you can zip it. Haha.
I have a bunch of other pictures to upload, because SUMMER is coming and Merge has bathing suits and bathing suit covers, but my phone IS NOT WORKING.
So, while I wait for that nonsense to get its s together, I present to you a charity fashion show featuring Pine and Merge.
Find Merge on Harvey Road by Al’s Formal Wear, or do a little browsing on their facebook page.
BIG NEWS Pine fans.
If you haven’t been swayed by my blog yet to make your way over to Pine, this grand opening party would be a great excuse to check it out.
There’s live music, wine tasting, introductions of new clothing lines.. and a photo booth!
I was watching them haul this thing in yesterday, and it’s pretty awesome. Today they have FREE PHOTOS all day.
Not something you’d expect in a clothing store, which is just another reason I love this place.
Aaaaand on to clothes.
Here’s the shirt I bought for the week. It’s teal and frayed around the collar, sleeves, and bottom.
I dragged (and by dragged I mean HELLO she came willingly to this place) my friend Jessica to come along this week, and she fell in love with this shirt.
And yes, I need to get my camera working better so I can stop cropping out my face. Ehhh.. one day.
