Spring Dressing


I'm seriously loving all of the gorgeous dresses available out there on the world wide web. ASOS has been knocking it out of the park lately with their clothes. Of course, Forever 21 is doing the same! Scroll through to see some of the dresses that I am loving from two of my favorite retailers. Have a great day!

Lazy

A.N.A blouse via JCP, shorts via Tar-jay, BCBGeneration heels, F21 bag and bracelets,
How Gorgeous necklace (opening soon)

Well, I suppose I've reached an all new low. I wore my sweat-shorts to church on Saturday. These are the shorts that I wear to teach dance in, for crying out loud. So I guess this is a lazy girl's outfit for sure. I figured if I piled on the jewelry, wore some make-up, and put on my heels then I wouldn't look too much like a bum...




And I don't think it will come as a huge shock that I'm wearing all black. Black is my favorite color, after all!

One More Time

Charming Charlie sweater, F21 jacket, earrings, and bag, Loved by Heidi Klum jeans, Nine West heels

Well, this is pretty much a look for fall. I figured I would take advantage of the cooler weather (for the last time) and wear a sweater, jacket, and suede shoes. I didn't really get to wear these shoes this past winter because my fat feet wouldn't fit into them. 




I shouldn't complain about cool weather here. It will be 100 degrees in the next two months and I'll be singing a different tune then. Hope you have a great day!

Accessorize With Color

Nails and Lips
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

Lately I've been loving nude and bright pink shades for nails and lips. They couldn't be more different but I think that they are both great colors for spring and I'm looking to add a few lipsticks and polishes to my collection.


What better way to wear these two colors than with black? Black is, without a doubt, my favorite color. Make a cute, summery look (above) standout with bright pink polish and nails.

Black and Nude
Sweater, jeans, lipstick, polish, heels, bag

Or keep a casual look low key with nude colors. What are your favorite lip & nail colors for spring?



Layered

H&M striped tee, F21 tee, I Heart Ronson skirt via JCPenney, ShoeDazzle c/o shoes, Outrage Fashion c/o clutch,
How Gorgeous necklace (opening soon)

It's funny how before I got pregnant I thought I had nothing to wear. I thought I had exhausted every item in my closet and could not come up with any new combinations. After many months of not wearing my regular clothes, suddenly I can come up with new combos. Or maybe I've already worn this and just can't remember. That's a very strong possibility!





Can I just say that I missed blogging? It was nice to have a break, even if it was a long one, but I'm glad to be back. 

I started teaching pilates again and that was nice. I'll start dance back next week and I can't wait. I've missed my girls and I've missed dancing as well. I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Matchy

F21 sweater, bag, earrings, and sunglasses, Loved by Heidi Klum maternity jeans, BCBGeneration heels, How Gorgeous necklace (opening soon)

I tried to be smart about the things that I purchased while I was pregnant. I bought a few bags, sunglasses, a jacket, and a couple of shirts. (I did buy a swimsuit when I was 8 months pregnant and I'm crossing my fingers that it will fit this summer). I pretty much know my size in tops and jackets when it comes to Forever 21 so I knew I would be safe to buy this sweater a few months ago. I have one in yellow and it is such a versatile piece.



Normally I like to wear either all black, or mix colors together. It's been a long time since I've done just one color so I thought it would be fun to match my nails, sweater, and glasses together. 

Have a great weekend!

Casual Brights


F21 top and bag, Loved by Heidi Klum maternity jeans, ShoeMint heels

I'm still sporting my maternity jeans. I actually kind of like them and don't mind wearing them because I didn't get to wear them much during my pregnancy. I was so huge they wouldn't fit! Like I mentioned in my post on Monday, I'm still limited to a certain amount of things in my closet so maternity jeans are going to be in the rotation frequently until I shrink some more.




Have a great day!

Date Night

Since I had so much fun on my first date night since Mark was born, I started dreaming up other date night outfit combinations.


I love the idea of mixing two different leather textures together. And you just can't go wrong with leather, period.

Scallops
Top, clutch, heels

As much as I love black (it is my favorite color), I love fun, bright colors almost as much. The scallops on this top and clutch are so cute and add a touch of sweetness to this date night look.

Stay tuned for some exciting news in the next two weeks or so. I've got a big project in the works and can't wait to share it with you!

Transitioning

H&M tee, F21 dress and clutch, BCBGeneration heels, Lilac Bijoux c/o necklace

Not only are we transitioning from winter to spring, but I am transitioning from being pregnant to a post-baby body. My little man is three weeks old (he's so cute!) so I can't quite fit into all of my old clothes just yet. If you have had a baby before, you know that it usually takes awhile for your body to return back to its regular size. For now I will wear simple things like dresses and anything with a lot of stretch!





I wore this outfit on my first date night with my hubby since Mark was born. I can't tell you how FAB it was to get out of the house with my husband and have a conversation. I spent the whole first ten minutes just giggling at the table. People probably thought I was tipsy even though I had not been drinking. I was just so excited to be out!

Have a great day!
