Like Mother Like Daughter

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers out there! My mom is my number one cheerleader, shopping buddy, confidante and best friend. It’s only fitting that I bought this gorgeous dress with her too! I saw this floral beauty and couldn’t look away. The fabric is extremely soft and flows like a dream. The silhouette is really feminine and flattering thanks to the subtle pleating at the chest. I love dressing up for brunch and this dress was seemingly made for it! Now, when to wear it again? I’m thinking I can double dip and use it as a casual work look by covering up a bit with a jean jacket. I could also wear it again to a nice dinner or party this summer. Sometimes I shy away from buying fancier looking dresses because I worry I won’t have anywhere again. Choose casual dresses with higher quality fabrics to use them for multiple functions!

La vida loca

Happy Cinco de Mayo! My outfit doesn’t exactly reflect the Mexican holiday, however, I had a margarita and guacamole today so I figure I’m good. Today’s outfit is perfect for any summer day at the office. The jean shirt is light and fun, just what the slightly heavy skirt needs. I love this purple color and how well it stands up through my long day at work. I added these great brown heels to give the look a casual, summer vibe. They are so versatile that you can dress them up or down with pretty much anything. The semi cage look of them is super unique and eye-catching. A dusting of gold jewelry keeps the look from being weighed down. I hope you’ve all had a taste of la vida loca today!
