Weekend Recap

Hi Fashionistas!

First let me say sorry there was no post yesterday. I have been doing the most. Which means I have not been planning my time as well as I should be. To keep it really real, I have been watching Power in my spare time and I’ve been sucked in! No excuse, but I’m here now!

This weekend I had a blast! I went to a friend’s wedding and after a few of us went to the Baltimore Harbor and  hung out. I’m excited to share the day with you, I never take photos when I am out, typically I like to spend time with the people around me, but since I did this time I wanted to share them with you. img_0183-1img_0184img_0178img_0182-1img_0154

Here are the shots from the Baltimore Harbor. Like a bunch of big kids we went paddle boating in dragons and walked around exercising our large dinner from earlier.

Le Black and White Look

Good Day Ladies,

Did you see what I did in the title… (lol). This look screams Paris to me, hence the Le. Ok I am a dork but lets talk about the outfit. 🙂 This outfit is so easy and comfortable. I have been looking for another pair of black Pixie pants for some time now. I did want to find a budget option because I do have the purchased form J.Crew (currently on sale!) a few years ago, but I wanted to find a great pair on a budget. Old Navy has had a very similar pair if you are looking for a cheaper option which is what I am wearing today.

Hello there!

Now if this outfit doesn’t scream summer to you I don’t know what will? I love love love this shirt. I almost paid full price for it because I loved the way it felt. Luckily, it was on discount when I got to the register. These pants are really old from Banana Republic Factory. Honestly, your clothes hold up so much better when you invest in them. I think I am on year three with these pants. It helps that I only wear them a few times each year, but they have held up very very well, through stains and parties. The shoes, I don’t even know where they are from because they are so old.

Hi Friends,

How was your Independence Day? I had such a good time! I went over a friends house and we spent the entire evening eating and playing Monopoly! It was a perfect time. At the end of the night there were fireworks… fancy that on Independence Day! Did you do anything fun over the holiday?

About this outfit: lately, I have been traveling up and down 95 more often then usual, I will be traveling this weekend and again at the end of the month. Needless to say I have been living in sweats (shocker I know). I just have to be comfortable when traveling. I like this outfit because it is easy to wear and comfortable. Instead of looking like a bag lady when traveling I like to find a cuter alternative. You  never know you may want to run into that outlet mall as you are driving to you location. I also like to take my shoes off in the car, so wearing these slides I can slip them on and off quickly.

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I am so happy that Independence Day is just next week! I love love love July 4th. Something about it just gets me so excited. Every year and it never fails. I purchased this skirt last year and never got around to wearing it. Don’t judge me, you know you do it too. I am getting it out to you this summer just in time for July 4th. I don’t plan on taking much leave, but I still have to be festive around the office. Here is a look I may or may not have already planned to wear Monday the 3rd. 🙂

Embellished Summer Dress

So I am frugal, and I never buy things full price. That said, when I buy something full price I have to love it, ALOT. So I bought this dress full price from Banana Republic at that. I have been a fan of Banana for years. I love how their clothes fit me. Their dresses are the perfect length. I don’t wear a lot of heels so having my dresses hit right at my knees is exactly what I look for.

What called out to me about this dress is that it is essentially a basic dress, with a splash of fun. Oh and that is exactly how it wears. It is so comfortable, the fabric amazing!
