Summer Dress Style

Hello friends!

How are is everyone’s summer going? Can you believe it’s August already?? The last two months have flown by for me!

Summer is always a great time for t shirts and shirts but have you considered wearing dresses to run errands, get groceries, or go to the park? Dresses can be be very breezy and help to keep you cool in the šŸ”„šŸ”„ summer temps!

I found a super cute summer dress (of course from Target) and it almost looks like a jumper! It’s made of linen which is such a great summer material. It’s gathered in the front and has a cute bow. I wore mine with a red t shirt and red/white patterned slides which I think is super cute with my leopard bag!

I’ve previously wore this dress with a tight white tee and platform neutral sandals. I think both looks are fun!

You’ll notice I’ve got my new blonde wig (which BTW is working out excellently for me-I don’t have nearly the anxiety as I did with the first wig I wore. I’m a lot more comfortable with it now!)

A Dress as a Duster

Hello friends!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I thought spring into summer might be a great time to share a way to wear two maxi button up dresses as Dusters!

The first one is a snakeprint collared dress from H&M that looks so fabulous as a duster with denim shorts and neutral t shirt and some fun heels! I love snakeprint and I swear you CAN wear it with anything! I never get tired of finding new ways to wear it! It’s so fun!

The next one is a denim dress (Target -not as long as the first dress) but an example of how you can take any button up dress and wear it a different way! Plus denim itself is so versatile! I paired this dress with black leggings/black t shirt with my cool athletic type blue/gray sandals (JCPenney).

Why don’t you try this fun look out for yourself and discover new ways to wear your dresses!

Simple Outfits for a Win!

Hello friends!

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

I thought I would share a couple simple outfits that are classy and have some personality! You know outfits with personality are one of my favorite ways to dress šŸ™‚ Both outfits showcase white shirts, just because I think white is a great color to wear in the heat of summer.

The first two outfits show the same peasant embroidered shirt. One day I wore it with raw edge ankle crop jeans and a camo jacket (cause it was quite cold) and another day I wore it with high waisted wide leg crop jeans (same wedges each time) and I can’t decide which outfit I like more! I really like the shirt with camo as it’s such a juxtaposition of styles which really speaks to me! I love the opposite idea….a lovely peasant embroidered shirt, so genteel and delicate/dainty with the tough look of camo. It’s like saying “you really don’t know me at all, I’m a lady AND don’t underestimate me! LOL it’s such fun!

Then the next two outfits, I’m wearing a basic button up white shirt (with a little bit of texture) with shorts AND some cropped striped pants. Either are fun and provide a little bit different personality to fit different plans for your day. I have worn short to work before but I always try to pair it with something really fancy to dress them up. Typically shorts would be a weekend outfit idea or for a summer holiday. The cropped striped pants can also be a weekend outfit, summer holiday or work outfit.

I love the idea of an interesting white top/shirt (all these items are super affordable and on sale at JCPenney) to dress anything up or make an outfit simple AND fun!

It’s A Colorful Spring

Hello friends and Happy Wednesday!

I was thinking of all the bright colors in my closet this spring and had a little giggle reflecting back to the movie “Devil Wore Prada”- “florals for spring? Groundbreaking”! LOL! I think spring is always full of bright, fun colors but for some reason I’m really rocking them (no matter what Miranda Priestly says- I don’t need her permission, I don’t work for her!)

So I thought I would share two of this week’s fun bright spring looks that I love (closet shopping win)!

First I couldn’t resist going all purple/pink on Monday! Seriously, who can resist such fun colors! Purple is actually my favorite color (I might not own enough purple items, that’s something I would love to fix). I wore pink slacks with a pink/blue/purple plaid blouse from JCPenney along with my purple Walmart espadrilles and a super cute lavender bag I snagged from Target. (All of these items are budget friendly-my JCPenney shopping usually involves a discount or coupon and obviously my Walmart shoes are not breaking the bank šŸ˜‰

I LOVED LOVED being all pink and purple…I think I was more cheerful and pleasant (ok the sun was shining too) but color really seems to make me happy.

Then yesterday I had to wear more COLOR! Specifically I wore my bright poppin yellow slack, a floral/striped blouse, my super cute yellow polka dot kitten heels and a bold pink bag! I was feeling very bright and happy! My slacks, blouse, and bag are all JCPenney (bag and blouse are old) and my heels are a special find from DSW about a month ago. So far I’m trying to wear them as often as possible as they are so super cute and very comfy.

I hope these colorful looks are inspiring to you and give you the courage to try something fun for yourself. Don’t be afraid to wear what you want. You might inspire someone else too!

Iā€™m A Fan

Hello friends and happy Wednesday!

I know you all love Wednesday the same as I do because it’s the halfway point through the work week!

So the other day I was mistaken for a MLBB fan. True- I was wearing my Boston Red Sox tee- but it’s the cutest Tee and in a great color-RED and that was my reason for buying it šŸ˜‚

I have been to Boston before and my visit was amazing. I fell in love with that great city. I even took a cool tour that passed Fenway Park- sweet right?? So it’s not like I’m not a fan of Boston- I just don’t think I’ve ever quite watched a Red Sox game on TV.

I’m an in person kind of fan- I would rather see a team play AT THE FIELD- IN THE STANDS! Know what I mean??

I do like baseball, basketball, and football and sometimes other sports; but if I’m wearing a Tee- it’s because the Tee is super cute or I’m headed to a game and I want to rock the team colors.

So here is my outfit from the other day when a Boston Red Sox rival noticed my tee and I had an awkward conversation not even mentioning why I really bought the shirt! šŸ˜³šŸ˜‚

Feeling Very Mellow in my Yellow

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

It’s the first Monday in May! I’m so excited for warmer weather! My yard is coming back to life and I love all the new blooms and leaves. Spring is such a wonderful time.

I thought I would share my love for yellow this season! I invested in several yellow pieces: yellow blazer and pants along with yellow lace dress from JCPenney, and yellow polka dot pumps from DSW. I think I’ve worn one of these pieces at least twice a week since I’ve added them to my closet! How fun is that? I love to take pieces and just wear them on repeat with SEVERAL other items. It makes me feel very creative and a smartie pants when I do this.

So here I am sharing my several mellow yellow outfits! This might just be my favorite color this year!!

Spring is for Pastels!

Hey friends!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

I thought I would share a new fun color combination that I just love!

I follow (subscribe) to WhoWhatWear- it’s a really trendy fun line of clothing (some of which is carried by Target) but they have a big IG presence and always have fun articles on new trends or fun colors to wear.

One of the recent color combinations they highlighted that I love is mint green with red, pink or blue. I thought that was really fun and so creative!

Then the other day I was in JCPenney and discovered the cutest striped pastel blouse and of course I eventually decided to pair it with pastel pink slacks! So many fun pastels to brighten up the day! (Of course I had to wear pink sandals and a pink heart necklace along with my classic Betsy Johnson pink/cream bag with big bow!) I was feeling very understated today šŸ˜œ

AND I LOVED IT! So try out the pastel trend for yourself! I think you will love it!
