Fashion Friday: In One Piece

First and foremost I want to thank all of you who took the time to leave a comment yesterday.  You will never know how much it meant to me to read all your stories and how this blog has affected you- from simply bringing a smile to your face, a new top to your closet or even a baby into your world because you went to see my fertility doctor after I wrote about her.  You put the biggest smile on my face EVER. Gratitude abound.

Now onto some more fun things- namely one piece swimsuits for those of us (ahem, me) who no longer feel like rocking a bikini all the time (or any of the time).  While pregnant I discovered I love me a good one piece. And since my time constraints (and desire to spend time working out a lot) have left me without a firm tummy I am going to be rocking more one pieces this summer.  The good news is, they are totally IN. And there are a TON of great ones- from Target to Tory! Here’s a bunch I’m liking:

Fashion Friday: An Outfit I’d Wear Non Stop

I fell in love with this classic but cool Anthro dress when I saw it online the other day and wanted to create an outfit around it that could be a go to for any spring activity from brunch to shopping or a date with the hubs (but probably not playing with Henry since spit-up and suede are not good bedfellows.)

Dress- Anthropologie //  Denim Jacket- J.Crew // Sunnies- J. Crew (love the quality and shapes- obsessed with my pair) // Necklace- Anthropologie // Bag- Fossil (woven bags are IT for spring) // Sandals- Joie (also, lace up sandals are a must) // Lipgloss- UD Naked (love the whole collection) // Perfume- Tom Ford Soleil Blanc (smells like summer) // Body Balm- Aesop (smells SO good) // Nailpolish- Dior Pandore (a good orangey-red is me go-to for crisp, classy toes)

And here are some options for the accessories- bags, shoes and necklaces:

Fashion Friday: The Must Have Top for Summer

I mentioned last Friday that the top that is a must have for spring/summer this year is the off the shoulder blouse.  Not a tight t-shirt style, which can look dated, but rather a loose blousy one paired with shorts or skinny cropped jeans and sandals.  It’s super feminine, great for super hot days and flattering on many body types.  Wear this kind of top with big statement earrings and bracelets, but skip the necklaces to keep from adding any business to the already interesting neckline.  Here are 12 great ones to try in a variety of prices from $20 to $375!

Fashion Friday: Vacation Dreams

I cringe to think about it, but I used to get “bored” on longer beach vacations. I’d get fidgety just laying by the water all day and look for something to do with all my ADD energy.  But right now I would sell an ORGAN to be laying on a beach with absolutely nothing to do but be still. Kids will do that to you, eh? Makes those precious moments of quiet relaxation all the more blissful. So while I hallucinate the pure happiness brough on by blue water, a cold drink and the smell of sunscreen I shall indulge in a little vacation wardrobe dreaming as well full of tassels, fun punches of color and lots of white!
