I stalked this dress for over a year…and my stalking paid off because I only paid $80 for this gorgeous beauty! Being patient is worth it sometimes I guess! 🙂

I just love the colors so much. It has my favorite cobalt blue and pinks, and I even love the brownish flowers they threw in there too. The fabric is thick and the dress is so well made. They still have this in many sizes on kate spade’s website for $196 – but I suggest you try your nearest kate spade outlet to see if they have it like I did.

Finally…I broke down and bought a Tory Burch Fitbit Flex holder. My colorful rubberized bands just didn’t make the cut with some of my clothing choices. And what a great investment this was! Feels just like a normal bracelet…and I don’t workout in it obviously. The rubberized bands still get used for that for sure.

Eliza J Maxi Dresses

I stalked this Eliza J maxi dress last year. And I’m so glad I did…I got it on the Von Maur sales rack for a whopping $47! Virtually free, right?! I love maxi dresses, and this one checks off tons of my favorite things – belt, pleats, color, floral pattern, fun neckline. There are so many Eliza J dresses that I have on my wish list. They are just so feminine and girlie – just the perfect maxis. Let’s look at some of the great Eliza J options out right now (click on the picture for more details)…some of these are already on sale! If you have a baby shower, wedding, or any event where you want to look your best, her dresses are great!

kate spade Jaq Floral Print Dress

I stalked this dress after I saw a blogger wear it on Instagram. I’m not afraid of prints or bright colors; I gravitate towards them. As a communicator and creative person, color makes me happy and helps me express my personality. When I wore this to work, we had prospective clients in for a tour. As they walked into my area, the response I got was “Well, that’s an awfully bright dress.” My response? “I will totally take that as a compliment.” 🙂 And he quickly said it absolutely was. But it’s fashion…I dress for myself and no one else.

This dress is gorgeous. Plain and simple. Did I mention it’s on super sale?! If you have added any kate spade dresses to your closet, you know how well made they are. This dress is no exception. I won’t divulge how many dresses I’m stalking from this upcoming fall collection…

Dressing Up Jeans with a Blazer

So…I used to wear blazers all the time when I had to dress in business attire at a former job. After I had to wear them for 7 years, they got a major break. But I’m not sure why. Blazers are so versatile. You can wear them (obviously) with a suit or just step up a t-shirt and jeans.

Y’all know I heart Ted Baker. And when Haute Look just had it on a few weeks ago, I jumped at getting a few pieces. I scored this great ecru blazer and printed tee. I love the inside lining of the blazer. And the print of this tee. Yeah. I love it. The soft pastel colors are just so freakin’ pretty! I felt so feminine just wearing these pieces.

Thought I would throw on my favorite skinnies and pumps – and voila! Great outfit for work. Gotta love when outfits just come together – especially when I’m rushed to get myself and the kiddos ready for the school and workday. Thank goodness summer break is almost here!!!
