Spring Blossom's

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day, not to mention I found these beautiful flowers! This dress that I am wearing is perfect for church or special events. What I love most about this dress is its color. It is grey/ silver and I am really loving that color. This dress has also been sitting in my closet for a while. At first I did not really like it and it seemed to big for  me. It turns out that I had a hidden gem sitting right in my closet. I have not been able to get enough of this dress. 

I paired this dress with flats, but it would look especially nice with strappy heels! 

Dress: J.Crew// Sunglasses: Ann Taylor Loft// Shoes: Juicy Couture (old)

For my makeup look, I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Artist Palette.' I am obsessed with that palette and will do a tutorial on the makeup look I am wearing soon! So look out for it.

Graduation Or Special Event Outfit Inspiration

Graduation season is upon us! It is a time for change, growing up, and of course school being out.  Last week I attended my friend's college graduation! It was an exciting day. Today, I wanted to share with you what I wore to help any of you who may be attending a graduation soon.

I wore a simple dress and flats because it was a very warm day and I did not want to feel to hot and sticky. I thought this dress was perfect because the material was thinner than normal dresses and it incorporated spring florals. I also tend to like dresses that are longer in length because I am tall. For this outfit I used a black DKNY handbag (not pictured).

Fun Summer Pattern Shorts

As soon as the warm weather kicks into high gear, I love to wear shorts with a pattern or embroidering to make a summer outfit more fun. The nautical themed shorts that I am wearing are perfect for a casual day time look, going to the yacht club, or even golfing. 

I like to wear these shorts with a lose tee not only to feel comfortable, but to have a more casual look. 

During the summer I also love to play with proportions and mix and match different patterns.

Happy Mother's Day

Today is a day to celebrate our mothers! 

 My mom is the strongest and most influential woman in my life. She is my rock. There is so much that my mother has sacrificed for me and my brothers and I am forever grateful to her. My mom has shown me what unconditional love is and has taught me the importance of forgiveness. There is no better advice than the advice I have received from my mom.

Happy Mother's Day! I hope that you may have a wonderful and blessed day!

One of my favorite accessories to wear are sunglasses. I love how when I put a pair on, I feel sophisticated. There is a certain mystery to a person when he or she are wearing sunglasses. Eyes are said to be the window to the soul. 

Sunglasses are great for days when I am not wearing makeup, for the beach, driving, nice strolls in the park, or to complete an outfit. Since spring is here and summer is not to far away, there have been many pairs of sunglasses that I have been eyeing. You can probably even say I am OBSESSED with sunglasses!  

A brand that I have been loving the most is Quay Australia (pronounced KEY)
