green floral print

I have been so excited to wear this green floral dress! I saw it first at the New York Fashion Week presentation last fall and waited patiently {and a little anxiously} for it to be available. Let me just say, I love it even more than I thought I would. 

I'm a sucker for floral prints but the combo of pink and green is just too good. This dress reminds me of a pants outfit I wore last year. I totally remember wearing that outfit and thinking that a dress version in the same print would be so lovely. I can't wait to wear this dress to spring parties and events! I have a few baby and bridal showers coming up and this would be perfect. 

I tied in the pink on the dress with these fun hand-woven wedges. {They come in sizes 5-11 too fyi!} These wedges are going to be worn very soon with some white jeans! Get ready!

You know what the best feeling ever is? Being home sweet home! After 10 days in Dallas, Texas I am back with my sweet little family. I'm not sure who missed me more, Matthew or Ginger. I'm going to say Matthew, but Ginger's jumping up and down, and endless kisses, were pretty close! 

As much fun as I had, I'm super excited to settle back into my regular routine. I'm one of those people that totally thrives off of organized daily patterns. Even though it's so fun to travel, I'm definitely happier at home going through my standard routines. Last night I made Matthew a yummy and healthy veggie dinner, took a shower and climbed into a freshly made bed before 10pm! Best feeling ever and the perfect way to start a brand new week! Happy Monday everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by!

the friday five

April 24, 2015

the friday five with striped tee, crossover wrap skirt, nude sandal heels, matte pink tom ford lipstick and bauble bar grid cuff M Loves M @marmar

After today's (almost) all black outfit post, I wanted to do a Friday Five with a little color. Isn't this YELLOW SKIRT fun? I love the brightness for spring and think it would look great paired with a STRIPED TOP {isn't everything great with a striped top, though?!}. These nude SANDAL HEELS remind me of a very expensive pair I saw at the original Neiman Marcus in Dallas but for a fraction of the cost. The tie detail is so flattering and the heel height isn't crazy high.

I've been wearing a lot of statement bracelets lately and this GRID CUFF would be a fun addition to my outfits. I've been wearing this one a lot lately and it probably needs a little break. Do you ever feel like you get in the habit of re-wearing the same jewelry pieces? That happens to me all the time!

The Tom Ford lipsticks have been everywhere lately and I'm so curious to check them out! You know what a lipstick hoarder I am! I'm curious about this PINK LIPSTICK since it's in a matte finish. I have a red matte lipstick in Dragon Girl but I could definitely use a pink one!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

(almost) all black

All black outfits aren't usually my thing. I'm a fan of color because I feel like it adds a little more personality to an outfit. However, all black can be attractive. It has a chic and slightly edgy feel and when you wear all black it's easy to mix and match pieces. If I had more clothing items in the same color, packing for trips {like my current one!} would be a whole lot easier! I like that the detail on this embroidered blouse adds some texture and a subtle print, and of course the green bag prevents it from being too monotone. I wore this outfit on a super hot day in LA so putting my hair back in milk-braids was just what I needed. I feel like I haven't done this hairstyle in awhile but I guess it's officially long enough now! Hip hip hooray!

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I'm finishing off my Dallas trip and will be heading back to LA on Sunday.  I'm sad to see it end but I'm looking forward to going home and seeing Matthew and my G bear! 10 days is a long time to be gone from my little fam bam!
