Happy Monday all!

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty relaxed. On Saturday night I  had a date with a  nice man  who was respectful and made me smile.   Sunday afternoon I hung out with my girlfriends who I haven’t seen in a while due to our hectic schedules. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of my date outfit but I will say I clean up pretty nicely! 😉

Monday mornings are rough for me,  so I grabbed this dress because it was easy to wear. The bold print dominates the outfit so only minimal accessories are needed. After adding earrings, a bracelet and sandals I was ready to go in no time. The only downfall with this dress is that  it is higher in the back than in the front due to my “shelf” booty (LOL) so I end up constantly checking to see if my Spanx are showing( wearing  no shapewear is not an option for me).   I was too self conscious about the hike in the back so I ditched it and wore  something else.  I’m very much on the fence about whether I should keep or sell  this dress.  I love the print but I don’t like the length.  What should I do?!

Have an awesome day!

TGIF everybody!

Denim skirts and I have a temperamental relationship.  I love them but whenever I try one on, it never seems to fit  right!  Either the skirt gapes in the waist  or has too much stretch in it which causes the skirt to rise way above my knees when I walk.  After trying on several of them, I going to give up until I saw this dark rinse skirt on Lands End’s website.  Since I had a 30% off code, I decided to take a chance and ordered it.  When I got it I immediately put it on and I was not disappointed! The skirt is the perfect fit and length for me.  The skirt  has  elastic bands at the waist that eliminates gaping (the elastic waist is completely unnoticeable). There is right amount of stretch in the skirt that stops it from rising above my knees.

I paired my skirt with my polka dot denim shirt from Old Navy (go get this shirt!), red flats for a pop of color and a sliver  chain necklace to finish off my Casual Friday look.  The skirt is currently on sale here with an additional 30% off.  Happy shopping!

Have a wonderful weekend!
