Cold Spring Flowers/Pigs in Space Adventure





Jacket, Purse & Scarf-H&M
Shirt & Skirt-AE
Tights & Boots-Target

What to do when it's a cold Spring night? Brightly layer up and go on adventures with pigs in space. Muppets, yay! I always like Pigs In Space from the Muppet show so I couldn't resist some pictures with that as my backdrop. Time for honesty: I've worn this outfit throughout the winter and never had the opportunity to take pictures. I figured it's bright enough to work for spring too. Finally! Yes, I did love wearing that outfit so many times. How'd you know?

Beautiful Dress Time

I was going to cover more Cannes dresses than just this one but this dress is spectacular and why not just show this one? It's long, floaty, ethereal, graceful, and a wonderful shade of green. (Yes, I will freely admit I'm a bit obsessed with seafoam and mint green) So basically, what's not to love? Incidentally, it's a Giambattista Valli dress. Here's to a little beauty for our Tuesday!

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day, friends! For my dear readers in other countries, this is one of the days we set aside to remember those who gave their lives for our country. So let's have a themed Music Monday shall we?
Three Sisters by The Andrews Sisters

To all those who have given their lives so that I may have my freedom, thank you! To those who serve now, thank you! I always appreciate you on all days of the year, but today especially.

Hidden Pink Polka Dot Adventure






Tank top-LC by Lauren Conrad, Kohl's
Pants-AE
Necklace-Forever 21
Sunglasses, Purse, Bracelet, Socks, Shoes-H&M
Nails-Two pinks with black bows (can't remember the exact color names)
Hair-Side crown french braid into low messy bun

Bought this tank top closer to the end of summer last year and so it hasn't gotten it's proper wearing yet. I'm remedying that...fast. I love the stripes on the back with a hint of that in the pocket in the front. Not to mention the comfort. (Excuse the little wrinkles, I had been on a couple of rides by this point and sitting down for a while before that.) But the aspect of this outfit that entertained me the most were my socks. Pink polka dots! Only visible at certain times and only if you pay attention. Also, just realized that if you are wary of mixing patterns this is the perfect way to start. Brilliant!

On Another Topic

Some of you know (others not so much) I work in the entertainment industry. This means what TV shows and movies are doing are of interest to me, generally. It's that time of year where shows are given the green light or, well... In case anyone is interested or curious about how their favorite shows did, here's a link with the info: What Shows Were Canceled/Renewed

Rose Pink Adventure






Dress, Bracelet, Ring, & Belt-H&M
Jacket-AE
Shoes-Payless

You know those days when there is so much going on (good stuff of course) and you need to be feeling your best? This was for that type of day. And this dress does the trick; always makes me happy, always. Might be the combination of the rose pink and the ballet feel of the dress. I know many girls would throw on sky high heels for an important day, but when running around (I literally ran since I was paranoid about being late for a very important fitting) that wouldn't work for me. So cute sensible heels it was. While I can run in sky high heels my body usually is happier when I don't. (I only sometimes listen to it. Compromise, dear readers, compromise)

PS. Thanks for reading!

Twirly Pink Adventure







Jacket-Nordstrom
Shirt-Express
Skirt, Necklace, & Love Ring-H&M
Boots-Target
Ring-Gift
Hair-Upside down French braid into bun

I can't get enough of this skirt! This was for a night out in Downtown Disney with the best friend. Happiness and laughter! Loud laughter (any one who knows us will back me up), we love to laugh and fully give in to our joy. And then I got to spin in my skirt. No, no rolling your eyes, you know you love it! Thanks best friend, by the way, for being my photographer! Especially since this allowed me to twirl in my skirt. Such a good night!

PS. I'm super happy that I'm posting this with a couple minutes to spare before a new day, whew!

Tank top-AE
Tights-Target
Ring, Purse & Shoes-H&M

Hair-Gathered in a half up do, braided little section, then looped into half a bun

For a night out with my sisters and friends I couldn't resist blue tights! Well, I had just gotten them and couldn't wait until next fall to wear them. I have a very strong affection for tights. Very. Sorry the pictures are blurry, think I must have been moving too much. We'll pretend its an awesome "haze" effect. Done that? Good.

Art Shopping Anyone?

I can honestly say that I'm blessed by wonderful friends with absolutely brilliant talents. I'm taking today to show you Jessica Teliczan's art. She's a talented artist, using unique methods. These beautiful pieces are hand-stitched!

I happen to be an owner of great piece by Jessica (wonderful birthday present! Thanks again, Jess!)

Now, why talk about it on the blog? Because she just opened up her first Etsy shop! Every piece is one of a kind and even better in person. How 'bout popping over to her site and seeing for yourself? Jessica's Etsy Shop

I'm so happy to see Jessica starting this. I think it's only a matter of time before she starts to be a recognized name. But shhh she doesn't know I think that...I'm kidding. Of course I've told her. Happy shopping!

PS. She does custom orders too! Fantastic!

Floral Creamsicle Adventure






Dress & Necklace-AE
Sweater-Forever 21
Shoes-Christian Siriano for Payless
Hair-Ribbon to tie off the ponytail

Not sure why but the word creamsicle popped in my head while trying to name this post. I went with it. This dress is definitely not new but I definitely still love it! Makes me happy every time I put it on. Soon I won't need a sweater to go with it (except for church, which is what this was for) and that is definitely joy inducing!
