The Summer Style Me Challenge at Get Your Pretty On is up and running with new outfits for summer. Today, I'm featuring the first few looks and linking up with my friends that I met through previous challenges. Although a particular look is given I am not always able to abide totally by the pieces due to guidelines of what I can wear to work. Which means these looks are inspired by the outfits prompts given in the challenge. Here's what I came up with from my closet. Day 1 ~ Patterned ... Continue Reading...

Remixing the Crochet Top

Pencil Skirt & Crochet Top

Good morning, friends! Hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for a new week. I have been thinking that it has been awhile since I have posted anything work wear related.

This little crochet top is just a fun piece and absolutely versatile so for this post, it will be my base piece.  I love the look of this top with a ... Continue Reading...

Sometimes I can lie awake for hours and other nights I sleep for short periods of time and awake almost ever hour. Sleeplessness makes other activities a chore because I just simply lack energy if I do not sleep well. And as ever girl knows, we need our beauty rest. I recently had the opportunity to try a product called ... Continue Reading...

Whatever is Lovely #8

Lovely#8

Doors and windows! Sometimes they open and sometimes they close. I think they can be reflective of our lives and hearts. At times I am a wide open and willing to embrace whatever happens and other times I lock myself up and do not allow opportunities or others to come near me. Are you like that? Ever? Sometimes? I hate it when I live as a closed person because I miss out on moments and life. Right now, in real life I'm struggling to keep my door and window open. I have felt a little out of sorts ...
