I cannot believe it is already Friday! This week flew by! I’m so excited to be kicking off my birthday weekend in just a few short hours!!!!  One of my favorite birthday activities is to take a moment and reflect on the past year.  The changes that have happen and the new people I have met and where I want to go in the new and exciting year ahead.  Before I wrote this post, I took a minute to look back at some of my old blog posts.  My blog was a huge, exciting change for me this year.  It was in August of last year that I officially decided (aka told my friends and family) that I was going to finally start a blog.  One of my favorite things with this blog is being able to look back at my style throughout the past year.  I never really thought I had a signature style, but as I looked back through old outfit posts I realized I definitely have one!  It was like a light went off as I thought back to my style and how it has changed and evolved over the past few years.  One constant is that I love a fabulous dressed-up casual outfit.

I love taking a basic outfit like a t-shirt and jeans and making it a little more fancy.  A few of my personal favorite tips for creating a dressed up casual look – add statement jewelry, toss on some heels, and add a structured piece or sequins.  I just purchased this Kendra Scott Harlie necklace with my birthday coupon. I LOVE this necklace.  I like that it hangs low like a pendant necklace, but can also be worn high and closer to the neckline.  I knew I wanted white stones because I wanted to be able to wear this necklace with everything.  My go to for dressing up  a look is always to add a heel.  I have a small shoe addiction, and so I always have a fun pump to pair with an outfit.  I kept to a simple nude peep toe with this look, because I wanted all the attention on my fabulous new blazer.  I have been in the market for a white blazer for awhile now.  I wanted one that was a little less work and a little more fitted and trendy.  I wanted fun lines and something that could be worn with dresses and pants.  I came across this one at Topshop and it was love at first sight.  It was everything I was looking for in a white blazer.

When Hallmark asked me to share my signature style, my first thought was I don’t have one I like to wear everything.  While I will always have days where I want to put on a fancy dress and sky high heels or ripped jeans and a vintage tee, I have realized through the years I have often landed on stepping out the door dressed-up casual. So, what is your signature style?

Because it’s my birthday weekend and all, I figured it would be fun to do a giveaway.  All the fun birthday cards featured in today’s post are from the new Hallmark Signature greeting card line.  I’m obsessed with these stylish cards.  I love picking out a card that I think will fit a person’s style and personality.  I mean these cards fit me to a T!  Wine, shoes, royalty – YES!  Hallmark wants to give one of you a free package of their Signature Style cards!  Enter the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post and be sure to check out their site to see more people sharing their #signaturestyle!
