so fancy

fancy tee with sequin skirt on M Loves M @marmar
As if a blue sequin skirt didn't say fancy already, I had to add this witty tee! I get totally obsessed with graphic tees and cute sayings {I love this sweatshirtthis top, and then there's this one!}. You can't have too many graphic tees in my opinion. My main plan for this fancy tee is to wear it with jeans and flats...pretty much a very un-fancy outfit, so even if I'm not dressing up, the shirt will say otherwise! That's a good plan right? For this blue sequin skirt, though, I kept going back to this top so I had to make it happen. I love the blue, shimmery, sequins. It's going to be perfect for a holiday party!

Happy Monday everyone! 
I'm working from home today while Matthew recoups from his shoulder surgery. If you remember, he had surgery on his left shoulder in May, and now it's time for his right one. Poor guy! His surgery is at 8am so send good thoughts our way. We'd appreciate it so so much!!

the friday five

I have holiday parties on the brain I think because lately I've been looking at so many gorgeous metallic dresses. I've always had a crush on brocade {remember this skirt from a few years ago?}. This ELIZA J BEADED BELT METALLIC BROCADE DRESS is so pretty and would look great with tights and some pretty pumps. I'd probably curl my hair with some glamour waves or put it into a big bun! I love sparkly accessories and this STARLIGHT BRACELET is such a standout! I love how the stars are oversized too. You don't need to wear a lot of other jewelry with a piece like this. 

Unexpected colors in winter make me happy. This EMBOSSED CLUTCH is not what you'd expect for a holiday accessory but I think it adds a great pop of color in this peachy melon hue. It would be so pretty paired with a gray coat like this one!

Can we talk about how bow crazy I've been lately? The red heels from today's post are a favorite and I've been wearing them {non.stop!}. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise then that these TORY BURCH VANESSA FLATS {which also come in navy} stood out to me. They're great for adding a little sparkle! And, then we have these KATE SPADE STITCHED BOW GLOVES {they also come in red and pink!} I'd love going out on a cold day with these pretties on my hands, wouldn't you?

Have a great weekend everyone!! Do you have any fun plans? I'm going over to see my best friend's sister's baby tonight and I can't wait! I need some baby cuddling!

the girl with the skirt

lip print top and black full skirt on M Loves M @marmar
Sometimes when you're having the worst day, where nothing is quite going quite your way, you have to grab the biggest skirt you own and play dress up. Lately I've been feeling so overwhelmed with things at work, the approaching holidays, Matthew's shoulder surgery next week, and it's been getting to me. I felt kinda down over the weekend, mainly from stress, but honestly putting this skirt on made me happy. So happy in fact that I broke out in song and dance at the end. Maybe that was due to my extreme tiredness, but I like to think it was the skirt talkin! A big, poufy skirt can't help but make me smile!

Chicwish is doing it again with their amazing skirt collection! I love how expensive this black one feels. It's big but still super comfortable to walk in. Thinking I might need to get another color for a New Years Party, or our annual Christmas Eve Eve!
