Polka Dotty...








Happy Monday Friends; this post is going to be short and chic!...:-). I had a very busy weekend; I attended a baby dedication party on Saturday and it was a lot of fun and on Sunday, I wore this polka dots outfit to church along with this Sophia Webster pumps that I purchased at the beginning of the summer and blogged about here. I would have loved to say more about this outfit and how polka dots print is so classy and blah! blah!! blah!!! but I won't say no more. Polka dots is so overdone already! I know you'll agree with me. Now, let's talk about something else...:-).





Blouse: Nordstrom rack
Skirt: Macys
Earrings and bracelet: Jcrew
Pumps: Sophia Webster

 





 
 I stopped by at the farmers market on Sunday after church and I was actually surprised that there was a farmer's market open on Sunday. I never knew about it until my friend mentioned it and we went there together. I just decided to take the pictures at the market on the spur of the moment and I was actually surprised that no one really cared...:-). I thought I was going to get a lot of stares like you get from some people most times when you take pictures in a public place. Well, at the end, I went home with some memorable pictures and lots of fresh vegetables; haha! How do you react when people stare at you taking pictures in a public place? Your thoughts...

The little Dresses..1



         
The Little Denim Dress versus the Little Black Dress...




The Little Dresses





A good percentage of ladies own at least one dress in their closet; there is no doubt about that. The first color of choice of  dress for most ladies is the black dress hence the popular trend of the "LBD" aka the little black dress. However, the LBD is slowly being dethroned by the "LDD," aka the little denim dress. This classic dress has been around for ages just like its counter part, the denim jacket. Although, the denim dress cannot go to very formal occasions like the little black dress but it can go as far as you want to take it with the right accessories. Below are two styling options for this classy little dresses...

Fashion is all about having fun; it's all about communication and a form of self expression. Whatever way you choose to express yourself in your attire; formal, informal, casual; do not forget about the dresses. They do not have to be short in length to be regarded as a "little dress" but they just have to be fun, classy and chic!

Fall is here; woot! woot!! There is so much talk about fall's fashion this season and aside from those fabulous coats and booties that we see each fall;  this season, it's all about the fringe. However, we should not forget those pretty little sparkly accessories that add some extra bling to the season. Jewelry is much appreciated by most people and it's time to start thinking about those Christmas gifts. There is a jewelry sale going on right now at JCrew and Saks & Fifth.

Work Wear: A dress and a scarf 1







With my summer closet cleaning way underway, I discovered lots of clothes, shoes and bags that I have not worn in a while and a lot more with the tags still attached to them and I decided to put this stash of clothing in a new rack labelled "Must-wear." This entire outfit head to toe is from that rack and I will be posting more of these oldies on the blog henceforth. 'Surprisingly, I was able to remember the stores where most of the items came from in order to put the link on the blog.

Also, I have decided to post better variety of styles on the blog and this "Work Wear" feature is where I'll put up posts on my personal style. I have said a lot of times on the blog that I am not a fashion stylist or fashion expert but just a mom with a fashion blog/writing as a hobby. So, I'll do my best to make the work wear (outfits) fun.



Dress: Talbots
Scarf: (old) Nordstrom
Bag & Jewelry (old)
Pumps: Agaci Shoes







A scarf and a dress is my favorite take on an outfit for work especially during the fall and winter months and I have quite a collection of scarfs; some of them are high end and some are from vintage or consignment stores but the important thing is that they do add color and interest to an outfit.
I hope our week is going great so far?

Happy Monday; this is just a quick post here to showcase the outfit I wore to church yesterday; it was a lace on lace affair. The weather is still quite warm though fall is around the corner so this outfit was right up my alley for a warm summer day. This lace skirt is another Chicwish addition to my closet and I certainly do love Chicwish; they offer very beautiful, trendy and quality clothes for ladies at very affordable prices. This skirt was on my fall wish list that I blogged about here and it was quite exciting to finally purchase it.

Chambray Jumpsuit






We have been having a lot of rain in the twin cities and with fall starting off officially next week; it's time to bring out the sweaters and light jackets and booties. This chambray jumpsuit from Eshakti has been in heavy rotation this summer and is a recent addition to my jumpsuit collection. I wore it to a kiddos birthday party last weekend with my kids and I had fun dancing and socializing at the party. The jumpsuit came with a sash but I ditched it as soon as I opened the package; I prefer the jumpsuit like this; free and fun and it has pockets too. I also decided to make the sleeves longer when I placed the order; as you know, Eshakti pieces can be customized to suit your style.

I have been doing a lot of closet organization in my home lately; from my closet to the kids' closet. My two daughters are growing into lovely fashionistas and their wardrobe is gradually expanding too. Now, they have asked me to buy them jumpsuits and they specifically asked for the chambray jumpsuit so I'll be surfing net looking for little girl's chambray jumpsuit. I just took a look at Jcrew and Zulily's website yesterday. If you have an idea of a trusted site that sells one, let me know in the comment section below please.







 


 







Jumpsuit: Eshakti
Purse: Express
Gladiator Flats: Macys
Necklace: JCrew
 



 


 
 
I hope you are having a great week so far and have great plans for spending time with God and family this weekend. I am going to leave you with one of my favorite Bible verses at the end of this post. It does not matter whether you have kids right now or not; you have nephews, nieces, cousins or young kiddos around you; let's do all we can to give the kiddos and younger generation the love of God and the wisdom to learn and apply valuable principles to their lives in order to make the world a happier place for everyone.
