Exciting News!


If you follow me on Instagram then you already know the news BUT if you don't you should cause I post there first with news, updates and general life happenings! It's @samantha_goble if you want to follow along!

Anyways I interviewed for an event planning job a few weeks ago at a local wedding venue here on Southern California. It's a beautiful venue with an amazing staff and they were looking for an administrative assistant. If you don't know I'm currently in college finishing up my Bachelor of Arts degree in Hospitality Management with a concentration in event and meeting management and plan on becoming an event planner/stylist. So it would be the perfect intro job not only in the industry but help me gain some experience and really allow me to work assisting event planners and learning the ropes. 

So by now you can probably fill in the blanks of where this going. I interviewed and last Thursday was offered the full time position of administrative assistant! I excitedly accepted and started yesterday! 
I am so excited to be starting my career and in the industry! I have such a passion for people and for events and can't wait to dive in and start learning! 

It is a full time job and I'm also a full time college student too and I run Tribe 21 and I have my blog so it's going to be an adjustment with all of it. I know I've just been getting back into blogging regularly but I plan on trying to keep to a schedule. I do have 2 days off during the week (Tuesday and Wednesday) so I'm going to try to shoot some then if I have time between my schoolwork. If I fall behind please bear with me as I adjust to this all, so I apologize in advance! 

If you want to see any work related content such as outfits, how to manage it (once I do), etc., let me know and I'll do my best to crank out some content! And let me know what other content you guys wanna see! I'm going to be doing more videos so if there's any kind you want leave me a comment!

Thank you guys for all your support, it means so much to me! :)

Stripes and Suede


I love stripes that is no secret. They are so versatile; you can dress them up or down, make them the focus or blend in, they come in so many cute styles, you really can't have too many striped tops. Moral of the story. So when I saw this one on Forever 21 for under $15, with the cutest lace up front (super trendy right now) I knew I had to have it. 









Stripe lace up top: Forever 21// Suede skirt: Abercrombie & Fitch (similar here)// Lace up flats: Kohls (similar here and here)// Watch: Arvo// Sunglasses: Old Navy// Purse: Forever 21 (similar here)//

This top is so soft and super strechy! It's definitely very body hugging so if you want it loose I'd size up at least two sizes. It is a shorter length, not quite crop top length but pretty close to it. It's gonna be so versatile with high waisted jeans or shorts for the summertime. And it comes in two other colors! 

I bought this skirt back in the fall of last year and just never had time to style it but it's gonna be SO PERFECT for spring! It's sadly sold out :( But I linked a similar style. 

Lastly, I don't think I've ever shown my watch on here formally so here we gooooo!
 It was on my Christmas list and low and behold it was sitting under the tree. Dad you're the best!!! It's from the brand Arvo and is such amazing quality. It's got a bigger watch face than normal, which I prefer, the prettiest brown band and is gold. The trifecta of watches for me. And the bestest, best part? It's $70. YEP $70 FOR THIS BEAUTY! When I first saw this watch on Instagram I figured it'd be $125-150 like most are. I think I had an aneurysm when I saw that it was $70. If you're looking for a really classic, versatile watch that won't break the bank go check out Arvo!

Real Vs.Steal


I love shoes, that is no secret. I probably have over 50 pairs easily ranging from sandals to heels, flats, sneakers and boots. But shoes can get pretty pricey and I'm a college student so I gotta save where I can! I love designer pairs but can't justify spending $100+ on shoes. SO I love when affordable stores like Target or Forever 21 come out with designer dupes for practically pennies compared to the designer ones. ANDDD Target especially has been SLAYING the designer dupe game lately and they have a ton out. I've rounded up 4 pairs that are super trendy right now that won't make your wallet cry! 


#1: GucciTarget// #2: Steve Madden - Target// 
#3: Marc Fisher - Target// #4: Valentino - Target/

So now time for some math. I promise it won't be too bad. 

If you were to purchase the designer shoes it would cost you $1,789 for all 4 pairs. 

If you were to purchase the Target shoes it would cost you $119 for all 4 pairs.
 
That's a savings of $1,670!!! 

You could buy all 4 pairs of Target shoes 15 times and for what you could buy the 4 pairs of designer ones once. 

YAY FOR SAVING MONEY! And still being super in style and trendy!  


Almost every pair of Target shoes are identical dupes for their designer counterparts. The only ones that are different are the Marc Fisher wedges. Marc Fisher doesn't have a pair similar to the Target ones but if you are wanting the "style and look" of the Marc Fisher pair the Target ones will do the trick. But if you are wanting a MF look alike these Steve Madden ones are almost identical dupes. 

All of these shoes are super popular right now and I've seen fashion bloggers sporting them in their Instagrams and posts. Plus they're all really fun and add a statement to any outfit! 

What are your favorite real vs steal shoes? Have any to share? Leave them in the comments below!

Blush + Lace


With Valentine's Day being tomorrow (seriously how is it already Valentine's Day? Wasn't it Thanksgiving last week?) I thought I'd roll out with a fun flirty little outfit! I just bought this ADORABLE lace satin cami from Target the other day in the prettiest blush color. It's perfect for a girl's night out or a hot date! 










Sunglasses: Old Navy// Lace cami: Target (similar herehere and here)// Jeans: Target (similar here)// Heels: Target (similar here)// Clutch: Forever 21 [identical style just solid color]// Crystal bracelet: Loren Hope// Spike bracelet: Wanderlust + Co//

*UPDATE: Target has this exact cami on their website and it's currently on sale for 25% off!! So get it while you can! 

Unfortunately I couldn't find the cami online :( BUT did find some similar styles like this one at Forever 21 that's on super sale right now! I'd also try your local Target to see if they have them in the store. It's from the Who What Wear brand! I can't wait to wear this with cutoffs for the summer! It would also be a super cute work wear piece with a cardigan or blazer. It's so versatile and at $20 you can't go wrong. 

I decided to keep with the neutral colors and fairly simple. I love dramatic, glam looks as much as the next girl and fashion blogger but sometimes simple is better. Like they say "less is more". 

I'm also super obsessed with these all black aviators that I picked up at Old Navy. I have a couple other pairs of sunglasses from there that I love and wear constantly. I usually am not a fan of colored frames but I just love the black with the dark tinted lenses. They're the only pair that I've been wearing lately. I can't get enough of them! 


So that's all I have for you guys today! I do have a lot of great new content coming soon so be ready.

You can, as always, keep up with me on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) where I post there daily or try to at least and show off my musings. 

Till next time!
