Wishful Wednesday

Happy Hump Day everyone! If you're in need of some blog post inspiration head on over to Kelsey's blog and link up for:

Today's top is:
'I wish'...I had ______store
as my personal closet
and could shop from it daily.

I wish I could have Bebe as my personal store! I love that store! Their clothes are so unique and stylish yet they have classic items as well. Plus they have killer shoes, great handbags and bangin' jewelery. It's your one stop shop! Here are some of the Bebe looks/items I am currently drooling over!

On another note. I made a super delicious and super healthy meal last night (and J loved it) so I thought I'd share it with you.

I use to LIVE at Bebe in college and sadly haven't shopped there in forever -- I need to go back!
