Pattern Dress

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to hang out with a lot of my Houston Blogger babes at Union Kitchen for our Blog Society brunch.  It was a fabulous few hours with bottomless mimosas (I had OJ ;D), tons of delicious food, and an amazing swag bag that included items from Kendra Scott, Tula, Francesca’s Collections and more.

Since having Sofia I get even more excited about getting all pretty and dressing up because most of the times I am in gym clothes, glasses and a high bun from 8-5 while my husband is at work.  So when I got the fabulous invitation to the event I knew I wanted to get all glammed up.

The best accessory to my look is the gorgeous Coach Skinny Tote in beechwood that I recently received.  Not only is the color the perfect neutral, but it has so many compartments it is great for this mom on the go.

Pink Pleated Skirt & Charming Charlie Giveaway

When I think of a pleated skirt my memory always goes back to school.  Back then you would just blend in with everyone else, but now pleated skirts are so much more.  From different fabrics, styles, colors, and lengths, a pleated skirt is a simple and extremely fashionable statement.

When wearing a pleated skirt I highly suggest keeping your backpack at home (lame joke I know lol) and focusing on not overwhelming the style.  Keep with simple tops and silhouettes to really make the skirt stand out.

I have always dreamed of having a whimsical blush pink skirt to add to my closet.  The issue I always had was that they were always expensive and I was not about to pay an arm and a leg for one.  Then one magical day my friend told me about She In and I came across this beautiful pleated skirt.  The best part was that it was under $30; there was no way I was going to leave the site without buying it. 🙂

Blush pink is absolutely my favorite color, and when it paired perfectly with my new pearl accessories I received from Charming Charming I knew I wanted my followers to have a chance to enjoy them as much as I do.

Head down below for my giveaway and your chance to get all the pearl jewelry from this post sent to you. ❤

Gingham Dress

Made famous in the 50’s and 60’s thanks to style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Bridget Bardot, the gingham dress is a print that brings a preppy-ness to any outfit.  I love this blue gingham cami dress from Old Navy in particular.

The A-line silhouette brings out any shape to a woman and fit me like a glove.  Currently Old Navy has their Thank You event where cardholders get 40% off or non-cardholders get 30% off all items at check out.  I always have a problem of adding multiple items in my cart. 😀

I love the super spring-y style that this look brings.  If I could go on a picnic, do some touring around a city, or just have brunch with the girls, I would definitely choose this outfit.  With our Houston Spring being more like Summer, it is a perfect lightweight dress that makes you stay cool even in the 80+ degree heat.

Now let’s talk about this multi-use bag that I got from Charming Charlie.  When I am running around with Sofia there is always ten million items that I need to bring with me, so having a handbag that has multiple compartments and removable bags is a totally plus.
