Sunday Look: Christmas Ball Skirt & Trumpet Cuffs

Happy Christmas Eve… Who else is excited to celebrate the wonder of his LOVE.  I will keep todays post short.  I have so much to do for our family’s annual Christmas Eve Party.  It’s almost time to put on our PJ’s and veg out!  We always have so much fun.  I wonder what the grand girls will do this year.

Today’s outfit although it’s not all red like I’ve done the past few Sunday’s,  I’m still festive.  Wearing my red, black and green sheer mesh knit bodysuit featuring an allover floral print, a round neckline, long sleeves with trumpet cuffs.  I’ve paired it with my all-time favorite ball skirt with loose pleats and pockets.  I adore this skirt so much.  It really dresses up any top you could pair with it.  Most of all the RED screams CHRISTMAS !!!

I’m keeping my accessories minimal. I’m wearing earrings in a deep red gemstone with matching necklace.   I couldn’t resist wearing these red pointy toe suede pumps with a bow detail. I even threw on a pair of stockings ( thigh highs) 😉 .

My BAG today is a sparkle of sequence.  It’s the finishing touch for the entire outfit.

I just love this time of year.  Everyone is so loving, giving and all is sparkling.
Until next time, Merry Christmas you all!

Sunday Look: Sweetheart Sunday in Red & Pink

It’s Sweet Sunday!  I always refer to the Sunday before Valentines Day as “Sweetheart Sunday”.

I was really excited about today.  It’s almost Valentines Day and I get to wear my favorite color “RED“.  I enjoyed wearing all that RED the entire month of December.  That brings me to today’s outfit choice. I knew I was going to wear some type of RED.  This skirt is one of three that I purchased quite some time ago.  I wore the black and combination black & red skirts during the Christmas Holidays.  Somewhere in the back of my mind I was saving this one for today 😉 .  This ball skirt (with the added tulle underneath) is so feminine AND it has pockets!   Since RED happens to be my favorite color, I have a lot of it in my closet.

I purchased this top not to long ago, it’s the same designer as the skirt.  I had every intention on pairing this particular top with a pink pencil skirt.  But something wonderful happened.  I saw these shoes online on day as I was browsing.  I went to the store and there they were, calling my name and I could not resist.   I immediately thought about paring the red skirt and top together along with these shoes.  It was a style winner.  In addition to the cowl neck the back of this top is so sweet, it has three pearl button closures and a keyhole. (It also has a solid black ruffle at the bottom which you can’t see.)

Style Tip:  When I purchase any top I try to make sure I can wear it with other things.  This top is very versatile. It can be worn tucked or untucked, worn with jeans, slacks or shorts… even belted.

As I thought about accessories, I knew I wanted something other than RED.  I wanted to play up the pink.  I did that with my earrings.  I also added a long necklace with a bit of pinkish bling.  I threw on a rose gold cuff and watch.  I’m so in LOVE! this look is so sweet.  BUT the sweetest, these two-toned RED and PINK heels!

My BAG; as you can see matches my shoes.  I don’t normally pair the exact same bag to my shoes.  But I fell in love with this bag and had to have it.  I have to keep the collection going right?  And since there are NO RULES I matched it up!

Right now, these shoes and bag are 30% off! OH!.. and Happy Valentines Day!

Sunday Social: The Holiday Season in Red- Take Three

Image result for christmas lights meme

BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE!!!!  It finally feels like Christmas Time.  That brings me to today’s outfit.  I’m dressed in HOLIDAY RED again…  You may think  you’re seeing double or did a double take when you saw today’s outfit.  I can explain, last week my blouse was the same print as my skirt.  I purchased the blouse along with three different color ball skirts in the same style.  Last week I wore the black skirt, today I’m in the RED/BLACK print skirt. These skirts are so dressy and scream HOLIDAY as I mentioned last week.

Today was Christmas Sweater Day at church.  I’m not really into Christmas Sweaters so I paired my skirt with a RED cardigan and back belt.  I left the buttons above the waist open. I wore a RED cami underneath the cardigan.  This gave me a two-piece look.  Since it was cold today, I wore a coat, YES I wore a coat! 🙂

I accessorized with the most perfect necklace.  It reminds me of an upside-down  snowman. Notice how it fits perfectly in the space above my cami.  I could not have planned a better placement.  Keeping with the Christmas theme added two holiday pins.  I also wore hoop earrings,  a huge single bangle and RED rings.  (I’m so addicted to my FITBIT I forgot to take it off)  Finishing off the look was black sheer hose and  black patent leather pointy toe pumps!

My BAG, keeping with the latest VELVET trend, I pulled out this VERY OLD BLACK VELVET hand bag.  Old is the new NEW…  It has the option of being a shoulder bag too. Love things with versatility…

Sunday Social: The Holiday Season in Red- Take Two



Happy Sunday! and the Holidays continue… in RED.  My favorite time of year.  What they say is true, it really is “The most wonderful time of year”.

Today I chose this lovely ball skirt with exposed zipper in back.  It makes a formal statement all by itself.  I paired it with a red and black long sleeve blouse.  The entire outfit screams HOLIDAYS… don’t you think?  The tulle underlining gives it just the right amount of poof, LOL…   AND it has pockets!

I have to honestly say I was torn as to which shoe I wanted to wear.  So many worked.  Two being a round toe RED platform and a BLACK satin pointed toe pump.  In the end I chose the RED BOTTOMS.  I couldn’t go wrong with either pair, they all looked really good.

Today’s accessories; I wore this large beaded necklace with bling and matching bling earrings.  After all it is the Holidays!

My BAG; as I was searching for the perfect bag this one appeared LOL… It was perfectly embellished with red and black bling beading.  It added that extra HOLIDAY touch.  Some of my other choices, black suede and a red woven fabric clutch.   But it was something about this one that stood out the most.   I love collecting clutches as you know.  It’s so nice to have a variety to choose from.  A girl can never have too many handbags 😉 .

Sunday Social: Mixed Prints









Mixed Patterns.. Happy Super Sunday.   Today I decided to mix patterns.  I adore the look even though I don’t do it very often.  A lot of people don’t think about mixing patterns, most are afraid to take the risk.  My blue and white checkered “crop top” paired well with my “balloon skirt”.  As I was dressing I was immediately drawn to this floral shoe.  I always do two looks before making my final decision.  Even though the other shoe worked, this one did the most.  I purchased this bag recently not knowing how I was going to use it… It works…  AND… I just had to ADD a statement necklace.  Pretty perfect I would say 🙂 .
Remember ladies, don’t be afraid to mix patterns, “NO RULES” go for it.  I DID…
Enjoy your Super Sunday.
