Sea Green Skirt

What a beautiful weekend it was!!  Did anyone do anything fun for Easter?  My husband and I got up fairly early and did a little spring cleaning before making our way to Rockford, IL where his aunt and uncle made reservations for lunch at 3pm for the fam….or so we thought it was 3.  As we were heading out of the city, traffic was really bad so we called Steve’s parents to give them a heads up we were going to be a little late.  They thought we were kidding when we mentioned we just left and it was already 1:45 (Rockford is about an 1 1/2 away).  Turns out we definitely had the time wrong and we were supposed to be there at 2 :/.  With traffic, we were about an hour and a half late and felt absolutely terrible.  Thankfully, we were able to join everyone at his aunt and uncle’s place for a couple hours after to chat and catch up.

We left just as the sun was beginning to set, which made for a great time to take some outfit pics.  There was a park right nearby that we went to and it was so nice to not be cold and rush back and forth to the car every few minutes!  After snapping some shots we were starving, so we stopped to grab some grub before hitting the road.  Thank goodness we stopped!  It took us a brutal 2 1/2 hours to get home between holiday traffic and construction.  On the plus side, with that much time in the car, I was able to play phone police (more…)

Red Orange French Connection Dress

TGIF!  So happy it’s Friday and super excited that it’s going to be such a beautiful weekend!!  Looking forward to catching up with some friends, checking out designs for our kitchen remodel and getting in some R&R :D  Any plans you share to care?

I’m finishing up this week with this gorgeous red-orange French Connection Dress from Haus of Reign!  I love the bright color and the fit was just right.  If still worked in the corporate world, this would be a great piece that I could easily transition from day tonight.  Cover it up a bit more with a blazer or cardigan and a pair of conservative heels, (more…)

So, I totally lied to everyone that follows me on Instagram (not intentionally of course) …I was supposed to post last week but because I did not have it scheduled correctly and I left my laptop behind when I went to Boston, I never actually posted this look on the blog.  I mean, I’m sure everyone was really torn up about it, so I just wanted to let you know what happened ;P

It’s been a whirlwind couple weeks after going to Go Blog Social in Kansas City, then right off to Boston!  I was welcomed home by the stomach flu on Tuesday, so I’m slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things! (more…)

The Maxi Dress

Written by , Posted in Fashion, My Looks, Style

Photo3 On the road today, so this one is going to be brief!!

One of my favorite warm-weather pieces has to be the maxi!  Whether it’s a skirt or dress, I absolutely love wearing them.  Aside from the fact that they can easily cover up a lazy day of not shaving :D, most are fairly versatile and with a quick switch of accessories, you can dress them up or down.  Loved the colors and print of this dress from Haus of Reign!

A big thanks to my Mom for stepping in as my photographer!   (more…)

The Scarf Print

I can’t believe I was able to wear a light, sleeveless dress outside without going numb! Warm weather finally seems like it’s just around the corner!  I was instantly drawn to this scarf-printed dress when I recently went to check out the latest inventory at Haus of Reign!  I not only love the print, but the cut-outs around the neck add a little extra character to it.  In addition to clothing, Haus of Reign also offers a great selection of accessories, including jewelry, (more…)
