Do you ever have those days/weeks where you feel so overwhelmed - there is so much to get done, and there doesn't seem like enough time to get it done?  That is how I have felt lately. I have been trying so hard to get my clothing line launched - which I am really hoping to have happen this spring. (I had hoped for winter - but it has taken a lot longer than I anticipated.) Yesterday, I was trying to get some details finalized and supplies ordered, and I need to get something shipped off before 5:00.  I luckily made it to the post office in time - but by the time I did my mind was fried! As I was driving, I had a hard time remembering where in the line I was at a four-way stop (like where you sit there and it is your turn - yet you have no clue) - I did that a couple of times, and then, I went to the gas station and put the wrong gas in my car!  I am hoping to get caught up - and have a much needed break soon.

So, for today's look I saw this floral scarf, and I decided to style a simple basic tee and jeans look around it.  Blush might have been last year's color - but the softness of pink can brighten any look - and is still very classic and in style.  I like how these looks show how adding just a scarf, can dress up a basic tee and jeans, by adding a little pop of color.  For a night out, you can just change out the shoes, and layer on a biker jacket.  And, you do not need to spend a lot of money.  All these items are all really great budget-friendly prices.

1. This blush cami would be perfect on its own or layered under a jacket and is only $18 - and also comes in black.  I shared how to style it here.

2. This comfy hooded sweatshirt is under $25 and comes in pink and six other colors.

3. This  sweatshirt is dressier than #2 and has fun side slit details and is only $18.

4. This simple tee is only $10.

5. This thinner raglan sleeve sweatshirt is only $13. 

6. This pink ruffle cold shoulder top would be perfect for a girl's night out or date night.  It also comes in a lot of different colors.

7. This ruffle sleeve sweater is a favorite of mine. 

8. I love these perforated chunky heel sandals.

9. I keep thinking about getting these booties.  If I would wear them as much as my Jeffrey Campbell ones I did last year (and get as many compliments), they would be worth it.

10. This bell sleeve/ruffle top is so pretty.

  6. I'm sure you were disappointed at not having your clothing line ready to release in the winter but all good things are worth waiting for. The timing just wasn't right then but you will get the loose ends tied up and be raring to go this spring. And look at all of your fans and soon-to-be customers ready to embark on this journey with you.
    I need a new pair of black jeans. I haven't tried H&M pants because they all look so tiny and I am not tiny. But maybe I need to give them a go.
