Fashion Friday!!!

Happy Friday y'all!! Another week has flown by!!!

Today, I want to share with you the latest fashion trend I can't get enough of...STRIPES!!! Stripes are everywhere!! Let's take a look at some of my faves!!

LOVE these colors together!! Navy stripes and yellow!!

TOPS:
These tops are all from J.Crew.




J. Crew has a pretty ridiculous amount of striped (pronounced stripe ped, if you're fancy) attire. If only they were a little more budget friendly! Although, that second top is on sale for &29.50 which isnt too bad considering J. Crew tops are basic wardrobe staples.

If you're looking for more affordable striped options, this tank from Target is super cute!!
I like sweater vests and I cannot lie......
DRESSES:

Both of these awesome numbers are from Asos. Have you been to their site? Asos is based in the UK. They have super cute clothes! Go check out the site!

Both of these dresses can be found at Modcloth. I LOVE both of them! Modcloth is an awesome site as well for super cute clothes and accessories!!

This dress is part of the International Designer line at Thakoon for Target. I found it online. Pleats and stripes!! LOVE!!

This skirt is from ModCloth.

These PJ pants are from Target.
SHOES AND ACCESSORIES:
Love these shoes from Rebels!!
These peep toes are lovely!!!
Striped sandals from Forever 21
Love these striped tights!!
I love this purse!
Finally,
I am buying this blazer. I need it. It needs me. We'll be very happy together. ;)

What do you think about stripes? What fashion trends are you into this week?

One last thing, if you havent entered my giveaway, here, what are you waiting for????!!! Go leave a comment!! Then, have a good weekend!! Man, I'm bossy! ;)

Peace and Love,

I love music.......
 Have you heard of 8tracks? It's a pretty awesome music site. People create playlists with 8 tracks of music and you listen. :) The playlists are sorted by artist, and genre. AND, they just released an iphone app! It's a pretty sweet, free way to get around 30 minutes of all your fave artists in 1 playlist! Check it out!!!

I love books too...
Shelfari is an awesome site if you love books, like me. You can keep track of the books you want to read as well as read reviews about all the books you should/shouldn't read!

You should check out this CD.....its dope.


Travis Barker's Give the Drummer Some is pretty sick. It's got lots of hip hop and a few rock tracks. It's awesome.

Launch Day & A Giveaway!!!

Welcome to the Launch of my new blog for Nola Love!! Since March 1st, along with a LOT of other eager, indie entrepreneurs, I have been a participant in the indie business 3.0 online course! The course has taught me so much! To kick off the end of the course and the new beginning of all our businesses, a group of the students are having a Launch Party! Some are starting new blogs (like me!). Some are releasing new product lines! Some are creating new Etsy shops (that's me too!) Some are having blog parties. And, the best part, a few are doing giveaways!!!

Since you found your way here, you can see I've created this new blog! I will be posting on this blog with all things related to Nola Love. As well as lots of other fun posts that I know you are going to love!! I also created a new Etsy shop! Please check it out! Nola Love Etsy Shop  I have had Nola Love for just under 2 years now. This class has really given me a lot to think about as far as the future of the business. I am planning on expanding my product line to include more focus on baby & children's handmade clothing and accessories. But, I just love making women's accessories & clothing. So, that will continue to be a part of  Nola Love!
 You can find Nola Love on Facebook "Like" the page! I'll be running coupon codes and giveaways through the Facebook page as well as on here!!     


Louana from Eleventh Monkey  is a pretty amazing classmate! She created a list of all the participants over on her blog! Hop on over and check out all the awesome indie bizzers here!!! There are over 20 people doing giveaways!!! Go check it out!!

 That brings us to my GIVEAWAY!!!! In honor of Spring, I have created several different Spring color combinations for my hand sewn organza flowers!

 I am giving away one of these cheery, Spring organza flowers!

The winner gets 1 organza hair flower in the Spring colors of their choice!! I will attach the flower to a soft, elastic headband or clip (The headbands can be made in sizes ranging from newborn to adult!!) Your choice! These flowers would be great in an Easter Basket! Or, an early Mother's Day gift! Or, even better, for yourself! ;) Just leave a comment down below telling me your fave Spring colors! 1 entry per person please.
