Happy Mothers Day everyone!!!

Since the weather was gorgeous yesterday, I spent the day hanging out with my godchildren Alex and Skylar. It’s been a blast watching them grow into sweet kids. They have me completely wrapped around their finger and I wouldn’t want it any other way!

TGIF everyone!!! Hope you have great plans for the weekend. The weather here in Philly is supposed to be beautiful so I plan to take advantage of it!

In keeping with my promise to dress more colorfully I pulled out my favorite printed maxi dress to wear today. I realized it was too summery to wear (the air is still chilly) and layering a shirt underneath it didn’t look good. While I was taking the dress off, I folded the top half of the dress down to create a skirt! I was quite impressed with my little DIY maxi skirt(wait, does this count as DIY? LOL). I paired my “skirt” with my white cowl neck shirt (seen here), brown belt and cobalt blue blazer. Since the skirt is really long, thong sandals wouldn’t do so I wore my new Kenneth Cole Reaction suede peep toe wedges (which are very comfy btw). To finish off my outfit I added my chunky two toned chain necklace.

Do you have any great DIY ideas to share? Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Hump Day everybody!

What happened to Spring?! I was sure we would have warm, sunny days once it arrived but it seems Fall has set in! I wasn’t going to let the cold, rainy weather stop me from wearing my new dress. I stalked this Calvin Klein dress on Nordstrom’s website since January. The vibrant blue color and surplice neckline instantly caught my eye. When it finally went on sale for 50% off, I scooped it up immediately. I’m always looking for stylish work dresses and this definitely fits the bill!

Have a great evening!

Happy Monday everybody! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I loved my black ASOS peplum shirt so much I went and ordered it in coral! Next to color blocking, peplum is my favorite trend of the spring/summer. I paired my shirt with my black pencil skirt and black patent leather t-strap heels. I bought these heels from Nordstrom about 3 years ago but after wearing them one day I misplaced them. I searched my house high and low for these shoes! When I got to work this morning I went through my desk drawer and guess what?! The shoes were in my desk! LOL

Have a great evening!

TGIF!!! Woo hoo!

So since I’ve been breaking my fashion rules this week, I figured why not go all the way?! Stripes were one of my fashion “no no’s” because they supposedly made you look wider. So again being a good follower, I avoided stripes until this dress. I love this dress because it’s comfortable and figure flattering. The gentle ruching and tie on the side help smooth out my tummy area. The black and white stripes are classic and great for a first time wearer of a striped dress. I added my new Nine West red mini platform heels for a pop of color.

Are stripes in your future? Have a great day!
