Hi Friends,

I have been wanting a lace cami for some time now, I found this one from Abercrombie for only $14. I am excited about his shirt because I know it will work very well in the colder months under a cardigan or jacket, for now, we get to see the amazing details of this top.

I actually have this packed with me in my suitcase, this weekend Frank and I are going to a couples retreat offered by my church. I’m so excited, I love conferences and investing in my marriage is something Frank and I put at the top of our priority list. I will be sure to tell you all how it went.

The White Button Down Dress

Typically, I have a classic style and I know I’ve talked about my personal style on here before. It’s just so important to know what your personal style is. Finding your personal style will be the best thing for your wardrobe.

After you identify what your style is, you will be able to determine what stores suit your style best. It will help determine if certain items will go with other items in your closet. For example, I love almost everything from Free People, but it doesn’t typically fit into my style. Not to say, I may not have a few things from them, but those are the super cute wild cards.

After you determine what store will work best for your style, shopping will become a breeze. After you build your wardrobe you won’t HAVE to go shopping so often and you will be able to identify where you have gaps in your wardrobe.

Gingham Midi Dress & Utility Vest

Here is another look I’ve been wearing lately. It was so hot here last week, and I reached for this dress almost daily because it is so easy and comfortable to just throw on. Now, I didn’t wear it every day, but I thought about it lol. It is the perfect dress if you want to look put together and still be comfortable in the crazy hot heat. I love the fact that it also looks good when you throw a jacket over it or even a vest like I have here.

Midi Skirts and Fashion Risk

I used to think they were not flattering on me because of where they hit on my leg. This summer, I’ve been loving the length. I feel like I’ve been taking more risk when it comes to fit. I am not big into heels and I think the most flattering way to wear a midi length is with heels (like shown above). Who cares- I like the length even if it makes me look shorter, it’s still fun.  Everything doesn’t have to highlight my best features, but it does have to be fun. I have more of a classic style and that can get boring really fast. What fashion risk have you been taking lately?

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I found this dress while taking a walk through TJ Maxx. I was so excited to get it home, only to find out it was much cuter than I imagined. I paired it with this jeweled belt I found at the thrift store. Yes, the thrift store.

This dress would be perfect if you have a wedding to go to.
