Hey Babe,
I hope you enjoyed a fantastic weekend! I indulged in 'me time' to the fullest, and even managed to get in a few shots of a newbie to my wardrobe, a pale pink suit from Premme! 
When I spotted this suit online earlier this month, something about it spoke to me. It said: "Purchase me!" 😁😁😁 I was a bit iffy about which size to order, you just never know how sizes will run when you try out a brand for the very first time. I went with a size "1", as I wanted a more relaxed fit - and wouldn't you know, I was right on! 
This suit is very well made, the fabric is soft (trousers are unlined), and it is a delightful shade of pink. The biggest shocker: It has real pockets! Not only on the trousers but also on the pants!!! Seeing that I am a lover of pockets (especially functional ones), this feature is a win/win in my book- whoo hoo! For starters I styled it 3 ways, with the following themes in mind:
* What not to wear to the office
* Boss Babe
* Semi-formal night
Which one is your favorite? Meanwhile, I haven't quite decided...
Until next time,
Xx

The Shoulder Show


Dress: c/o Gwynnie Bee - you can purchase it HERE| Sunnies: HERE| Necklace: J. Crew, sold out| Purse: Vintage, thrifted| Leopard Sandals: Old

Happy Friday Babes!!! Today's post features a stunning,RED, knit, off the shoulder dress, teaming with frills, ribbed details, and scalloped edges.... Can we just call it FUN for short?! I live for FUN clothes 😍 They rank highly - as in neck and neck -with pieces that I categorize as providing a serious happiness factor (read more about that HERE). I snagged this beauty per a recent shipment from Gwynnie Bee (learn more about them HERE + get a free trial offer) when I took it out of the box the very first things that I noticed was its intense red hue. Ladies, you cannot go wrong with a GOOD red piece! 
I subscribe to the philosophy: When in doubt, go with RED...
Until next time,

Free Flowing


Sunnies: HERE| Earrings: HERE| Halter top: Old| Pants: c/o YOURS Clothing| Slides: Dolce Vita, sold out

I was reminded of my adoration for palazzo pants a few months ago when I spotted a fantastic pair in lemon print online (blogged HERE). Shortly thereafter I came across  another pair in basic black, I knew that I needed to add them to my collection pronto. When they arrived in the mail I initially thought I might have to have the length altered. Imagine my surprise and elation when I tried them on - the fit AND the length was a perfect match for my body 😍 Despite their dark hue, the pants are wonderfully light weight. I was cool and comfortable (and feeling very cute 😉) on a day where temperatures soared up to 85 degrees.
For their grand debut out, I paired them with a knit, mustard colored halter top, along with tropical print fabric slides. Next time around I'm already planning to pair them with a black OTS bodysuit... Thank you to YOURS Clothing for another delightful find ❤
My one style wish: That these pants were designed with pockets. 
Until next time Babes,
Xx

Boho by Day


Sunnies: ALDO| Earrings: ZARA, old| Dress: MARSHALLS| Slides: ZARA, old| Handbag: Kate Spade, similar HERE + another cute option HERE

This weekend officially kicks off the start of Festival Season, I'm totally prepared to see bohemian style goodness in an abundance.
While on my regular weekly stop at Marshalls, I spotted this white cotton dress with beautiful embroidery in the Juniors area. That's right, it was in the Juniors section! Have you ever shopped for yourself in the Juniors section of a store? I know I can't be alone 😊 
I often peruse it when I am specifically looking for trendy styles versus classic attire. Another bonus is that the prices points are usually considerably lower, for example this dress was only $15!
I knew w/o trying it on that the fit would be just as I envisioned. For an afternoon out and about, I paired it with orange fringe earrings, a white tote, and blue bow embellished slides. I love that this look has a boho vibe, but isn't quite over the top enough to be considered true festival attire 😁
Until next time Loves,
Xx

Dress Obsessed

Necklace: Sold out, J. Crew| Dress: Sold out, Anthropologie| Purse: Sold out, Kate Spade| Brocade platforms: HERE

I recently attended a spring fashion show at my local Anthropologie store. Of course my first thought after RSVPing for the show was: What am I going to wear?! Isn't this imminently every woman's dilemma when planning to attend an event?! LOL! The day of I decided to wear this dress, which I actually purchased from Anthro last year. I have since nicknamed it "My happy dress". Yes, this dress gives off a major happiness factor. It might be categorized as a splurge-worthy purchase, nonetheless, immediately after I put it on: I feel G👀D. I topped it off with a red suede moto (not pictured here) for the night air.
The fashion show was nice, but in my opinion it was rather short. I think I was there less than one hour! I was however pleasantly surprised with the diversity in ethnicity and size of the models who walked the runway! The offerings were reminiscent of spring and summer, featuring bold colors and fun patterns.
Although my dress is now sold out, I'm sharing a few of my current favorites that are available for purchase at Anthropologie now 😉

Summer Over Spring

Hat: HERE| Earrings: Old, Baublebar| Top: HERE| Palazzo pants: HERE| Purse: Zara, old| Red mules: Old, TopShop - another cute pair HERE

It's officially SPRING Babes!!! YAY, warmer temperatures are finally on the horizon...somewhere...somehow...or are they?! LOL! To be honest, if I could choose, I'd skip right on past spring and dive straight into summer 👀 Good thing I live in a town that usually has only two seasons right? Funny thing is, I can actually remember (just a few years ago) missing the experience of having four full seasons each year. Afterall, I lived 20+ years with spring, summer, fall, and extreme WINTERS 😰But now, from where I stand, I'll take summer all year long 😍 I learned time and time again - you really can adapt to anything, including dreamy weather 24/7!
Over to you, what's your favorite season?
Until next time,
Xx
