Sunday Style: Shabby Apple Chic

Sometimes you wear something and you feel good. Sometimes you wear something and you feel great. And sometimes you wear something and you feel beautiful. This Shabby Apple dress does that for me! I'm loving this cut and color of this dress- simple yet so elegant at the same time! I let the dress speak for itself and paired it with pearls, a simple clutch and patterned pumps. I love this look so much!  Here are some pictures of today's look: I just love this dress! Shabby Apple is a great place to find romantic dresses and skirts as well as unique looks.

Yo Mama: A Tribute to Mothers Everywhere

Yo mama is so dumb...yo mama is so mama is so...yo mama... Everyone wants to tell jokes about their mamas but without our mamas we wouldn't be here! I watched the Mother's Day episode of the Ellen show from Friday  and was laughing at the funny jokes they were telling and was excited for all of the first time mothers who got all kinds of fabulous things for their babies to come.  I know though that this time of year is always a sensitive time for so many people.

Sunday Style: Hi-Lo Color!

This weekend has been beautiful! I thought it felt a lot like summer today as I was out running around and doing things. I went to a concert in downtown Detroit that my friend was in and ended up walking a lot back and forth to the area where I parked. It's good exercise but it reminds me that even warmer days are coming!  Today's outfit is a little play on words but it's Hi-Lo for this fun midi skirt and its color for all of the beautiful colors in this blouse and in this outfit! I love when an outfit comes together and it looks and feels fun and cheerful. That's how I felt about this look today. It's simple but put together and was perfect for wearing all day- to church, errands, lunch and that concert! I traded out the wedges for a pair of flats while driving and running around but the outfit didn't lose anything by having a gold flat with it!  I think if it were chilly, you could also add a denim jacket for warmth and the outfit would still look great!
