Adding a burst of hot pink today.  I am TOTALLY getting back in touch with my 80's roots with this neon color.   Where are those lace gloves?  No, seriously adding a punchy bright color with neutrals or basic black is a fun way to kick things up a notch this summer.

Decisions, Decisions

A decision that I can't seem to make. What color to wear for my trip? Better hurry my mani/pedi is scheduled for tomorow.  Think I am leaning towards Lollipop as it is such a bright and fun color, it screams BEACH!  Any thoughts?

Celebrity Copycat

Some days I just need a little inspiration. I was flipping one of my many magazines last night and saw this easy outfit worn by Reese Witherspoon and really liked the combination and knew I could easily recreate it. It was almost too easy this morning.  I even had time to do the breakfast dishes before leaving for work, gotta love it when yo have time to spare!

Happy Friday!

Going Bananas

Ever have one of those dresses that you pull out every year and you just can't seem to get rid of.  Well this paisley dress is mine.  Just when I think I am ready to give it up, I throw it back on. It's comfy and is still in great condition, so it will remain in my closet for one more summer season. 

Going bananas...I can't seem to get my pictures from being so light.  I feel like I am fading away, I guess photography is not my forte.

Dress and Necklace- Banana Republic
Sandals- Sam Edleman

Harlo wanted to go to work with me today. 
Sadly, it was a no go for him

Feeling Quirky

Drawing a little inspiration from Jessica Quirk of What I Wore today.  She always wears the most fabulous dresses, whether she hand makes them from a vintage pattern or buys them from Target, she always looks great!  This dress from H&M reminded me of something I think she would wear.  Thanks Jessica for being such a fashion guru and giving us all such QUIRKy inspiration.

Madras for Summer

I have slowly taken to the fun pattern of madras, a summertime favorite. Must admit that I did not think I could pull off the light weight plaid design.  I purchased a lovely pair of shorts to wear this summer for all my planned vacations and I am really starting to be on board with the popular design.  I think my Madre would approve. Do you wear madras pieces in the summer?

Happy Friday!

Nothing Better

Nothing better than wearing a fabulous pair of  leopard print heels (I just can't get enough of this pattern) on a fine sunnny Monday.  I was sort of feeling like a little creamsicle in this shift dress and thought I would add these gems to the mix.
