WhatUp Wednesday #2

Well, here we are a week later. I cannot believe that Memorial Day has already come and gone but it sure has! I am one of those that thinks Memorial Day is the beginning of summer. Too bad the schools don’t agree and don’t schedule accordingly…

My Memorial Day weekend was uneventful. I was sick so I had to stay home from work on Thursday and Friday. Saturday was also spent feeling ill but by Sunday afternoon I was able to get out and walk around the mall and catch some sales. Side note: the mall is a great place to walk when it’s hot out and you want to get some light exercise. Monday was primarily spent cleaning since I hadn’t had a chance to do it- those dishes and bathrooms don’t clean themselves! Where is that Rosie the Robot from Jetsons when you need one?!

I finished the book I mentioned last week, The Circle. Boy, was it good! I won’t tell you about it in the event that you want to go out and get it to read, but it was so engaging and thought provoking!

I am loving all things gingham right now. This dress I wore today is so awesome because it combines gingham and pattern mixing into one! Plus I love a dress with pockets! This dress was in my last Dia&Co box in case if you would like to request it in yours. I am also planning on wearing it as a skirt!

This gingham dress is actually what I wore on Memorial Day when I went out for a bit. This dress is from Target and has a great silhouette-fit and flare (my favorite!) and I love the tie detail in the back. True story: I was in Target on Monday and a lady told me how cute my dress was. I said, thank you! I got it from here. She went and got the dress and was super happy!

Don’t forget to enter the Agnes and Dora giveaway going on right now! It will be ending tomorrow. Here are a couple of outfits that I got from my friend Cassie and I love them both! Awesome piece that I will be able to wear multiple ways in all seasons.

WhatUp Wednesday #1

I decided I would start a new series called, What Up Wednesday. It will be about what’s up or what I am liking or reading or whatever I want it to be about really.


Today’s post will have a few things I am loving! First up is my new Shieldon phone case. I didn’t know how much I would love this case until I took it with me when I went to Colorado a couple of weeks ago. It made it so easy to travel in the airport with my license and credit cards right with me in my phone. I was able to scan my boarding pass and then have everything right at my fingertips. I also like to use it to watch Netflix as it has an awesome design that also allows it to stand. Check it out below!

Next up, is this book,  The Circle. I cannot get enough of it! I started it on Saturday and I am about ¾ of the way done with it. It is definitely intriguing and I can’t wait to find out what happens to Mae, the main character in the book. It is a book about a company that is the leader in technology and how it impacts the world. I don’t want to say too much about it because I want you to get your own copy and read it. P.S. I found mine at the library so need to run out and buy it.

And I am continuing my teeth whitening and I love it! Thanks to Smile Brilliant for the kit! I can see what a difference it is making!

 Lastly for today, I want to introduce you to a fabulous brand that I tried called Agnes and Dora. They are comfortable clothes that a real woman can live in. They make everything from dresses and skirts to tops and leggings. Soft, relaxing clothing at reasonable prices.

My friend Cassie and I used to work together and used to travel while we worked on projects. We both know the importance of comfortable clothing while traveling and just doing our daily thing. She is the mom of two beautiful young girlies and she is constantly chasing them around in style. She provided me with this outfit I wore a while back and this beautiful purple dress I am wearing today.

We want to share the love with all of you and she is giving away $20 to spend in her Agnes and Dora shop! Use it towards any of the beautiful items that she offers! Please enter the contest by following instructions on the Rafflecopter on the upper right hand side of the blog. There are a few different ways to enter and we can’t wait to see how the winner will be and how you style your Agnes and Dora goodies!


Whew! Well that’s the latest on my picks. Give me some feedback on whether or not you like this style of writing from me or what else you would like to see. I love sharing my finds with all of you!

Thanks for reading and following along with me!

Sunday Style: Sassy in Stripes

This Dainty Jewells dress makes me feel sassy. It also makes me want to go to sailing. This dress has a nautical feel to it and can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories. I wasn’t able to find a marina (you know there’s not as many lakes here in TX as there was in MI) but I bet it would be extra sassy getting on a boat as well.

Seriously though, this Bon Voyage midi dress is all that and a bag of chips. The white and navy stripes elongate the body and the waist gets attention by the belt tied tightly around it. So figure-flattering!
I have worked with Dainty Jewells before and I love their dresses! They are a modest modern clothing company with plenty of options to look beautiful and graceful. They have quality merchandise with gorgeous patterns and materials.

So while I wasn’t on a boat, I did find a bridge by some water to take these pics:

Dress- Dainty Jewells

Sandals- Charming Charlies

Clutch- Dia&Co

I hope you are all having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
