Favorite “PINS” Friday-Dress Inspired

It’s June and that makes me think–wedding. I have a wedding I’ll be attending next weekend and I’ve been looking at dresses that inspire me. I already have several dresses I can wear but I’d like to add some accessories.

I love this dress and the clutch she’s carrying is gorgeous. Clutches are trendy right now so I’m seeing them everywhere.

This outfit would be perfect for a wedding and look at that adorable clutch!

Beauty For the Heart~~I wanted to ask  if you would pray for my sister, Traci at Beneath My Heart. She’s leaving for Nicaragua on Monday. She is traveling with Compassion International and with other bloggers. Traci will meet the child that she is sponsoring and their family. You can follow her journey over at her blog beginning on June 18th.

Thanks for your prayers!

It’s All About The Stripes!

Have you noticed all the stripes! I’m wanting to add them to my spring and summer wardrobe.

This dress is from Downeast and it came in my Stitch Fix box and I decided to keep it. I think I’ll wear it a lot this spring and summer. When the weather warms up I can take the denim jacket off and add sandals.

I decided to go outside and take my pictures since it was cloudy but it was still chilly and as you can see my trees look yucky. Those will be green soon, I promise!

It's All About the Stripes
It’s cloudy but I’m still squinting! And I’m having some serious “big hair” today. :-) Here’s where I purchased each item.

It's All About The Stripes

You can purchase this dress online at Downeast. The dress is the stylist pick and is only $30.

It's All about the stripes
My necklace is from Groopdealz, I shared about Groopdealz here and of course a denim jacket is a great piece to add to your basic wardrobe.

Do you love stripes? Have you added any to your spring and summer wardrobe?

Fashionable Christmas-Dresses

Hi friends! I’ve struggled writing this post. My heart is still so heavy over the loss of life. Funerals will begin today for the children and adults at Sandy Hook. I will continue to pray, and to beg for healing not only for the community of Sandy Hook but also for our nation.

Over the last week, I’ve been sharing ideas for a more Fashionable Christmas. Today is Day 8 and I’m sharing about my love of dresses.

12 Day To A More Fashionable Christmas

It seems these days that “casual” is fashionable and don’t get me wrong, I love dressing casual. But I like to dress up too!

Fashionable Christmas-dresses

My little black dress was purchased at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago and my red and black dress is Simply Vera Vera Wang that I also purchased a couple of years ago from Kohl’s.

I love classic dresses and this Houndstooth Dress is a classic.

This dress is trendy and I love the short boots. I’m hoping to add a pair of these boots to my winter wardrobe.

Cobalt blue is a fashionable color this season and wrap dresses are flattering for almost all figures.

This holiday season why not wear a dress that makes you feel feminine and fashionable!

Do you wear dresses? What’s your favorite style?

Favorite “Pin” Friday!

Happy Friday friends!!

I have a busy weekend ahead. I’m doing something I always say I’ll never

do again~~I’m have a garage sale!

My daughter talked me into it.

As always, we try to make it fun so my sister and sister-in-law are joining

in on the madness and they are coming over tonight to stay all night.

We might as well have a slumber party, right?

Oh well, I’ve got lots of pricing to do but I want to share two of

my favorite “pins” with you.

I love dresses. I know some women don’t like them but I think they are fun and feminine.

I think we’ve taken the casual look to the extreme. Don’t get me wrong,

I love casual but I do think there’s a time to dress up. :-)

This is from the What I Wore blog. Isn’t this dress adorable!!

 

I love red and this dress is perfect for the summer months.

  • Necklace: F21
  • Dress: Milly (on sale!)
  • Ring: Giftbag
  • Belt: Target

This is from The Small Things Blog.

 

This would be a great dress if you don’t love to show your arms. The blue is beautiful!

  • Dress: Banana Republic Outlet
  • Jewelry: Watch, Target; Necklace, Elisabeth Ashlie; Bangle, Sak’s off 5th

Beauty For the Heart~~I wonder if any of you are like me? 

Do you ever feel lonely? I do.

I have friends but we’re all busy and I don’t always take the time to

cultivate my friendships. Many of my friends are online,

we’ve met in real life but we don’t live close enough to see each other often.

I think it’s important as women to have friends that you can share “life” with.

Friendship takes time and energy and the old saying is true,

“to have a friend, you have to be a friend.”

Do you have friends that you’re sharing “life” with? 

Let’s commit to working on our friendships!

“Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil;

hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply;

practice playing second fiddle.” Romans 12:10 (Msg)
