Sunday Social: Shades of Blue









Happy Resurrection Sunday!  Easter always takes me back to my childhood. It has always been a very emotion holiday for lots of reasons. I always look forward to the various Easter Themed Productions each year. As a child my mother would dress my sisters and me in pastel colored dresses and hair bows. Today I chose to be bright in color not only for my childhood memories, but in honor of my deceased brother, blue was his favorite color.
This scuba fabric midi is so comfortable. Whoever came up with this concept was brilliant to say the least. I could have paired any shoe with this dress. I was lucky enough to run across this floral number (on clearance) and it said “buy me” of course, LOL… They were the perfect accent to the blue.
I kept with that burst of color in the necklace, bag, earrings and bracelet. It all came together quite nicely 🙂
I would like to thank each of you for your kind words and prayers last week. I was touched beyond measure.

Sunday Social: Heavy Heart Sunday

Today’s Blog is a little different.  Its a “Heavy Heart Sunday” for my family and I.  My brother passed away last night and we’re all still in shock from the unexpected.
I chose not to post any photos today out of respect for him.  We all went to church as usual because there was no better place to be. We know God makes no mistakes and we will get through this as a family.  Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
Hug your loved ones, call your siblings.  We never know when its our time.
God Bless.  There is BEAUTI in everything, find it…


Sunday Social: Bandage Skirt









What a Beautiful Sunday!  Spring is one week away, I can’t wait.  How did you fair with this  Day Light Savings Time?  I was prepared this morning, laid out my clothes last night and woke up at my normal time.
For those that don’t know, this skirt is called a Bandage Skirt.  Its made from multiple strips of cloth sewn together with the individual strips shaped like bandages.  Simple enough…  Its very flattering with a strong elastic waist. This skirt will look good on any body type. Don’t be afraid to try new styles and fit.  You just might be surprised!
I purchased the entire outfit including necklace and earrings (minus the shoes) at the same store. That’s what I call one stop shopping 😉
My purse is a very old “vintage”… it added that pop of color I needed to break-up the Black & White. I really adore the V-neck, button down top. My necklace filled the open space perfectly. The satin sling backs pulled it all together.

Sunday Social: Athleisure Sunday











Happy Sunday… Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Lets talk about this “Athleisure” outfit (Athletic Leisure) Athleisure is a trend in fashion in which clothing designed for athletic workouts at a gymnasium, sometimes termed activewear, is worn outside of the gym to go to the office or shopping or other social occasions.
It doesn’t take much to dress it up or down. You choose.  Since I was attending church in this outfit, I chose heels and bold jewelry.  My makeup today was a little more dramatic than normal too.  I feel good 😉  Let me know in the comment section about your Athleisure experience.
