Sunday Look: Floral Print Ruffle Dress

Happy Sunday!  Blessings for another week.  I have to say this past week was rather uneventful.  Although we had the usual Saturday of grand girls sporting events.  It’s still pretty warm and I’m so ready for some cooler weather.  I sound like a broken record I know, I know 🙂 …

I’m also not ready for all those dark muted colors either.  I’d like to think I’m a colorful kind of girl.  I never use to be a fan of floral print.  I purchased a floral dress a couple of years back.  I looked at that dress for a long time.  I liked it, then I didn’t.  I thought it was ugly actually.  But I couldn’t leave it in the store.  When I finally wore it I was in love and have been every since.  Most probably think floral prints are for Spring and Summer months only.  There are some beautiful floral prints of reds, gold, orange and greens that flow well into the Fall and Winter seasons.  I’m already thinking about what I’ll wear in December.  I can’t wait!
Today’s outfit is floral of course LOL.  I was drawn to this dress immediately, I’m not sure if it was the print or all the ruffles.  This dress has an allover floral print, a V-neckline, a waist sash-belt, long sleeves with split ruffle cuffs, and a ruffle hem. Can you get any more girly?  I felt like my youngest grand daughter wanting to twirl.

Last night when figuring out how to style this dress I went through several necklaces.  Whichever necklace I chose would dictate the earrings.  You know pearls were my first choice.  I ultimately decided on this gold multi-tasseled necklace and large loop earrings.   I know pearls go with everything but there was something about this necklace that fit perfectly in the V-neckline, (this necklace was a birthday gift).  I chose to wear a nude patent leather platform heel.  Every nude shoe I tried on worked.  It was all about the color “nude” that paired well with all the colors.

My BAG today was BIG! Sometimes you just now what goes well and what doesn’t.  This “doctor bag” looking handbag with a diamond stitched pattern was a very good choice I think.

Sunday Look: Pom, Poms and Tassels

Happy Sunday!  It’s been a busy last couple of weeks.  Last week we were in Oklahoma cheering on our grand daughter at her basketball regionals.  I’m last posting today as well.  I was out school clothes shopping for one of our grand girls. Taking advantage of tax free shopping.
As the summer season trickles down you can still take advantage of all the summer trends.  Todays outfit is a bright bohemian burst of color shift dress with cold shoulder cutouts and a bouquet of multi colored tassels and pom-poms.  I have a feeling these trends will continue into the fall months.


I continued the tassel trend by wearing like colored earrings.  The bouquet of tassels and pom-poms took the place of a necklace.  Mules with a neutral and colorful strap finished the look.

My BAG today was a neutral tote with a pom-pom/tassel charm.  I thought it was a fun addition in keeping with the theme.
We all know trends come and go.  I like to hang onto things because eventually they make a comeback 😉 .

Sunday Look: Old Meets New

Happy Sunday everyone!  Summer has arrived and I’m feeling the heat.  My summer wardrobe will be renewed styling.  How? I will mix and match some of my older summer wear with any new pieces I happen to pick up this season. The goal is to not break the bank, stay stylish and cool! no pun intended. 🙂

Today’s outfit is a combination of old and new.  This one piece spaghetti  jumpsuit deserves a second or even third wear.  When old meets new it all becomes new again.   The new is this colorful kimono.  When I first saw it I knew how I would style it.  It’s giving me a Japanese inspired look.   This kimono can easily be paired with a skinny jean or shorts & tank, sundress, leggings and used as a swimsuit cover-up.  The styling possibilities are endless.

My accessories consisted of my usual, earrings, necklace and bracelet. I chose open toe cork heels to not compete with the kimono.  The kimono is so colorful it doesn’t need any help. BUT….

My BAG, OMG I am so obsessed with the Gaia’s Ark bamboo handbag.  I didn’t hesitate to pair it with my kimono for a Japanese inspired look. Styling success! I’m so obsessed, don’t be surprised it you see it again and again…

Don’t hesitate to bring out the old and mix with something new!

Sunday Social: Color Me Orange













Happy Sunday everyone! What a busy weekend and its finally coming to an end. No time to really plan an outfit for today. I guess I got lucky with this fit and flare skirt and tangerine high-low top. I purchased both of them a while ago [at separate times] not knowing how I would style either. I love the flow of this skirt, its giving me that Stepford Wives vibe. Instead of just letting the top swallow me up, I belted it (WITH A POP OF COLOR) for a more flattering appearance. It gives a totally different look than if I had left it loose.

My mint green bag is the statement piece to this outfit, it says SPRING (yasssss!) My shoes (BOGO) are loaded with bright colors and ties the entire outfit together. Lastly, PEARLS are always a good idea!  Don’t you just love COLOR?  I couldn’t have planned this if I tried.

Style Tip- You know you got it right when the complements flow.

Sunday Social: Turquoise In Bloom







Happy Sunday everyone. What a beautiful day this turned out to be. We had great praise and worship this morning.

It’s SPRING, so let the bright colors begin. Today turquoise is the main attraction. I decided to pull out the brightest color in my top to showcase my entire outfit. The skirt is by the same designer as the top, sold as separates. I could have chosen just about any color skirt to pair with my top. I think the red helps to break up the turquoise in my jewelry, shoes and bag. I think it all paired wonderfully. This outfit would be just as cute if the two were reversed.  Get ready for floral prints this spring 😉

Remember, there are no rules when it comes to fashion. If you like it, wear it… Enjoy your week!

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: End of Summer Floral







Good-bye SUMMER… it’s the last weekend of summer.   In keeping with the summer         season and temperatures, my “outfit of the day” is right on time. This sleeveless floral print dress was a great way to end the season don’t you think?

Surprised by my shoe choice? I could have chosen a much brighter shoe but I wanted the dress to be the main attraction.  My accessories are quite simple, pearl earrings and necklace.  Threw on some bangles and I’m done 🙂

Stay tuned, it’s pretty safe to say you haven’t seen the last of color from me.  Remember, we are in Texas 😉  There is BEAUTI in everything, find it…

Out the Door: Electric Blue







I’m off to the office in my Electric Blue dress. It’s always fun to shop my own closet. This outfit was very easy to put together. The show stopper for me is the SCARF and it was only $1.00 (I’m not embarrassed to tell you where I got it either, it looks just as good as a $10.00 scarf) 🙂  that’s right another one of my dollar store finds and I LOVE the boldness of all the colors. It went very well with this dress. I added a colorful belt and shoes, POOF an outfit was born and on a budget, even better.
Unstoppable in my ELECTRIC Blue Dress. What bold colors have you been wearing this summer?
