Nectarly Dress

This may be the most feminine dress I own. From the lace detail on the bust, soft floral pattern that accumulates at the hem, a simple slit at the front, to the most dainty open back...honestly, this dress is a dream. I recently wore it to breakfast while on a mini vacay in Palm Springs with my husby.. It's so dang hot out there, even at 8am...so this dress was perfect for the occasion and the weather! I feel like this dress can be worn for many occasions. Weddings, baby showers, lunch dates, bridal showers, or even throw on a denim jacket and wear it out on a date night. I have to mention..The openness of the back might make some of you weary...what about wearing a bra you ask?...well here's the truth, I'm not wearing one. The bust is wide enough to cover my chest without having a Janet Jackson moment. Pre-kids, my chest was perky....now, having a slip up would be national geographic status....I'm just saying. I've tested this dress out...and it's "mom boobs approved".

Lacy Daydreams

 I found the perfect summer romper. Believe it or not, I found it through Instagram. Some how, I came across a photo of a really pretty dress (that I bought, and will be posting about it in the very near future). When I clicked on the hashtag, I was directed to a boutique called "GMGStyle"... which led me to their online store. I've seen many rompers like this one, with the dolphin cut and lace hem..but this one just SPOKE to me. whatever. I liked it A LOT, so I bought it. The fit is perfect. Not too short in the back, and the elastic waist has a lot of stretch to accommodate different body types. The fabric is 100% polyester, and fully lined. The lace is delicate, and so feminine...but pairing it with a leather moto jacket could give some edge. I chose to wear wrap sandals and a black lace bralette.

Laid back



 This is me, lately. Cut off shorts, a muscle tee..and my birks. I've held off on buying birkenstocks for quite a while now. One day, I just decided to get some. I chose the brown leather. When they arrived, I was surprised at how light weight they were...I guess I was expecting them to be heavier... They fit perfectly, and go with nearly everything.

 Mixing hues again. I love wearing white with cream or beige. Since the top has such deep arm holes, I wore a black lace bra underneath. Who wants to look at an ugly bra?


   These Quay Australia sunnies are go good. They are my first pair of Quay shades, and most certainly won't be my last. I feel like the Aussies just get it right EVERYTIME. I found these on poshmark.com (my new go to for buying,trading and selling) I would have purchased a pair directly from the Quay Australia website...but, as I've mentioned before, I'm impatient. My next purchase of Quay shades WILL be directly form the site though...they have a couple pairs I'm totally crushing on....and can't be found elsewhere...

Floral jumpsuit

This jumpsuit is perfect for the not so hot days. Although, it is light weight enough to wear even if it IS really hot. The halter neck and tie back, give it a edgy twist. I think the only thing missing is pockets! (I think it needs pockets.)The down side to jumpsuits are the fact that you have to completely undress when you need to use the bathroom. NOT fun when going in a public restroom. If you're anything like me, I am super paranoid in public restrooms. Who knows WHAT is on those surfaces?! Other than that not-so-awesome fact, I love wearing jumpsuits and rompers.  It's just so easy to throw one on and be done with it. 
Today is Wednesday, half way through the week, and only a few more days for Ryon in first grade. Time just flys by.

Off the shoulder

Another super duper bargain. Found at Windsor. I mean...come on. How cute is this top? Its surprisingly comfortable, and even better...it was under $40. whaaaaaat? I loved the Stone Cold Fox version when I saw it in the showroom...but refused to spend $150 on a crop top. So naturally, I went on the hunt for a similar top...for MUCH less. I came across this while on another online browsing trip...and had to pre-order it. I normally don't pre-order things, because I am impatient. But for this, I was willing to wait. It was worth it.

Boho elephant dress

Let's just talk about this dress for a minute. First of all, I have to tell you that I've wanted the Novella Royale dress ever since I laid eyes on it. However, there is no WAY I can afford to spend $200+ on a dress. So, the search began. Hunting down such a unique piece can be quite daunting...even for me. (who loves the hunt almost as much as the kill). For months, I kept my eyes peeled for anything even remotely similar. Once again...Forever21 delivered. That place is notorious for offering "dupes" of popular trends for a fraction of the cost. I think that's why I love shopping there so much. When this dress became available, I did not hesitate to purchase. I almost couldn't believe my eyes. It's exactly what I was hoping for. The dress now comes in maxi form, with a seductive side slit. AMAZING...and sure to flatter the body. I don't have the maxi, yet. Since its summertime...and the weather is hot, I thought it more practical to have a short dress rather than a long one. I will probably regret it on those nights when the temps are cooler. So, anyway. Go get this dress. Short or long. Just get it.
