All About That Rocksbox (A Review AND A Coupon Code for You!)

Hope you guys survived the wild winter weather weekend, because I’ve got a fun post for you today!

So if you follow me on Instagram (and you should ;)), you might have heard me gush about my love for Rocksbox, but if not, here we go! It’s basically a jewelry rental subscription, and it’s super fast and easy. You sign up (and if you use the code “styleontargetxoxo“, you get a free month!), fill out a questionnaire about your style, and your personal stylist picks some pieces and sends them to you. You wear them for as long (or as little) as you want, pack them up in a prepaid envelope, and mail them back…and then they send you a new package! Amazing, right?

This is the first of three pieces from my first box. I love all three pieces they sent me, and I’m a little creeped out (in a good way) about how well they know my style. Hopefully, I’ll be able to snag pictures of my other pieces soon (a blue statement necklace and the tiniest little crystal horseshoe ring – go Colts!).

The best part about the process was that I got to decide what kind of pieces I wanted. I rarely wear bracelets (given I’m on the computer most of the day) and I don’t change out my earrings much either, so I elected to only receive necklaces and rings. You might be the exact opposite, so it’s awesome that you can choose what works for your lifestyle!

Another plus was that the pieces came to my home so quickly! I received my membership on a Saturday, filled out the questionnaire, had my stylist pick my items, and had them delivered on my front porch on Friday.

The only negative thing to the whole process is that I wish they had watches too. I would love to borrow a fancy watch for a week or two! (That suggestion is free to you, Rocksbox!)

So sign up and try it out, and let me know what you think!

Fall Capsule #1: Horsing Around (Again)

DSC085991DSC086001DSC085971DSC085941

Guys, I’m officially a style blogger now! I bought a used, but still fancy “style blogger lens” (aka a 50mm f/1.8 Mid-Range Lens) one and half weeks ago, and I’m slowly but surely learning how to use it.

I shot about 3 outfits before I think I figured out some of the tricks, so the next couple of outfit photos might be a bit overexposed (read super white and light), so bear with me.  I’m really hoping that this takes my blog to the next level, plus it’s kind of fun to figure stuff out like that (I think? ;)).

Anyways, the browns and navys of this outfit were calling my name one early morning in my closet, so I had to give in and let them hang out together.

ps. Any tips and tricks on working with this type of lens?

Fall Capsule #1: Gingham and Lace

DSC083321DSC083381DSC083401DSC083391DSC083361DSC083371

A touch of lace and a whole bunch of blue? Yes and yes.

Obviously, this week I’ve been big on layering and pants. It’s all a part of my fight to stay warm all winter long.

I’m pretty sure it takes a conscious effort to not pull pants out of my closet every single day during the next few months. I love skirts and dresses, specifically the ones in my capsule wardrobe, but they’re harder to coordinate with tights and extra layers, etc.

Pants? They’re just easy….and Katharine Hepburn wore them, so you can too!

ps. My mom and I are making holiday cookies next week. Does anyone have a favorite recipe to share? Let me know in the comments, please!

Fall Capsule #1: Gingham and Gold

DSC077161DSC077131DSC077181DSC077191DSC077101DSC077111

This is about as “prep-tastic” as I get. The J.Crew gingham shirt, the gold glitter belt, and the oversized watch are staples of the southern prep style blogs out there, but I like to think that I kept it cool with my navy hat and these INCREDIBLE boots from Loft that just arrived in the mail this week.

A perfect blend of “like totally, y’all” and fall street city style.

This from the girl that was born in Louisiana and spent 22 years of her life in Indiana. Yeah, I know my stuff…

ps. Linking up with these lovely ladies: Grace from Gracefullee Made, Elizabeth from Book of Leisure, and Brenna from Chic Street Style.

Fall Capsule #1: Basic

DSC074891DSC074931DSC074911DSC075011

Guys, I’m so “basic” (reference this list for more information). I found that list a few months back, and I nearly fit every single one of them (except, I’ve never watched a full episode of Friends or Gilmore Girls, shocking…I know). Specifically #4, 23, 32, 36, and 47. But most of all….#1. Oh my word, definitely #1.

You know what is also basic? This outfit. Which is a-okay with me. This whole challenge was about taking my style, developing it, and utilizing things in my closet that I would like to keep in there for a long time. I can definitely see myself wearing variations of this outfit for a long time to come.

Until Kate Middleton tells me not too…
