Flower Bomb- 10 Floral Prints Perfect For Winter


If you know me, you know I love wearing a good print! The trend of mixing clashing prints is behind us, but prints are a great way to make a statement and hide your imperfections. I saw Givenchy's collection of floral prints for Spring'14 and went GAGA! Here are 10 floral--fashion forward, yet affordable pieces,inspired by Givenchy, that you can wear to brighten up these gloomy winter days. These pieces are perfect for on the go use, and will add touch to any outfit.

Seriously, aren't these Givenchy sandals heaven sent? Below is a more affordable version.

Sweatshirt Jacket and Pink Bottoms

I am in love with Ann Taylor #Loft's new casual line from Lou and Grey. These texture rich pieces make casual wear feel luxe. I got a few pieces as a Christmas present (the pitch went a little something like this: "Well you know you're a mom now so I didn't know if you still wore regular clothes or just preferred sweatpants"). Well this was a VERY happy medium! Let's face it I won't be seeing a night club anytime soon, so threads that I can run errands, catch dinner or a drink with the girls and look fabulous (and be comfy) are right up my alley these days! Have you purchased pieces from this line yet? What are your favorite pieces from the #Lou&Grey line?

I Watch Too Much TV

I watch tooo much television! And I honestly don't know how I find the time to watch it all through the incessant diaper changes and feedings; blogging and research; cooking and cleaning; spending quality time etc. Lately I have added a few guilty pleasures to my roster of reality tv and my guilty conscious just wants to tell on itself. Here are the shows I can't get enough of (well until Scandal comes back-don't get me started haha).

1. Courtney Loves Dallas- This show should just be called We Love Courtney! To live a day in the life of a fellow fashion blogger-a successful fashion blogger who does exactly what I want to do is awesome with a capital A baby! It has the perfect amount of fashion, gossip, drama and did I say fashion? Her closet though-2 words....I'd kill!

2. Blood, Sweat & Heels- I'm a sucker for drama, not just the Law & Order: SVU (another show I LOVE) kind, but the "You stole my deal and oooh girl those shoes are fierce" drama. These successful women live out their dreams, stack coins and look fabulous doing it. I just described Sex and the City (which I miss terribly).

3. Love & Hip Hop- Ok I know, why do I watch this trash? One word it's entertaining! For one whole hour, I trash talk my laptop (I never get to watch prime time tv when it actually airs-I'm raising a kid remember--oh how I love his nap times) and literally cuss everyone out/give them unsolicited advice. I say a slew of "oohs", "ahhs", and "who let her walk out the house looking like that" as I grade the outfits on a scale of 1-10. Take a deep breath then wait for next week (don't judge me).

4. Single Ladies- *Starts singing the theme song* "We are single (pause) ladies"! Yassss honey!! This show gives me life! From the fashion, to the fine men and the gorgeous women who date them and back to the fashion (seriously you need to check out the threads on this one).

5. Real Housewives of Atlanta- I shouldn't have to say much. These Georgia peaches make me want to move to Atlanta and follow their camera crew. Although they have all found and try to lead sophisticated lives to the best of their ability, these women still bring the drama *snaps fingers*. With phrases like "I'm gone with the wind fabulous" and "I have arrived and the spotlight is on me honey" I just can't get enough.

6. Couple's Therapy- I'm not even in a relationship but I can't get enough of this show! But can I say this is kind of like a PBS special for my personal life? I mean I am learning what not to do/find in a relationship.....I digress.

7. The Braxton Family Values/Vince & Tamar- I adore this family! Really it's Toni and Tamar (who she, her) Yes! I love this group of sisters. They argue, travel, dance and makeup together. I love the quirky slogans from baby sister Tamar. I'm just tickled when I watch this show.

Ehem, CLEARS THROAT....Also, ABC has me HOOKED! I'm in knee deep with them: Scandal (woot woot), Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Nashville, Mistresses and Super Fun Night (I love Kimmy). My brain is going to turn into mush!

What shows are you addicted to-I mean can't stop watching?

Sweater Dress

I know it's too early to write a review for 2014 but.....This year I hoped for lots of opportunities to come my way. I started this blog in August and am amazed at what I've experienced as a result. I've made some awesome blogger buddies, worked with brands I've never heard of, found a way to feel beautiful and hopeful through a trying time, all while showing the world my love for fashion. What more can a girl ask for? Well I could ask for a few more things lol but you get my drift haha. This week I find out some BIG news, HUGE, and I can't wait to share it once it's all finalized. How's your year going so far?

Lace and Denim

While talking to a friend and perusing through her closet (that's how some of my best convos are had). I came across this cute little lace number. It took me back to the "old" days when my life revolved around Blossom, Saved by the Bell and Family Matters. I could definitely picture Blossom, Kelly Kapowski or Laura Winslow rocking this fit in total 90's style. What was your favorite 90's tv show?

Lace and Champagne

My brother recently announced his engagement and that he'd be getting married this summer! Of course my mind went into overdrive. What am I going to wear?! Lace? Velvet? Gown? Separates?...What is she going to wear?! I'm going to have to make a secret trip to a wedding boutique and try on dresses before I'm that annoying sister-in-law that tries on dresses with the bride (don't judge me). Let the planning begin!
