A few weeks ago I posted this photo on Instagram of this gorgeous outfit and got such a positive repost selfie I wanted to share more of it!

Unfortunately, I could not bring this whole outfit to Paris. The skirt is doesn't fold easily and wasn't versatile enough for the trip and the heels weren't practical for all of the walking. But there was nothing stopping me from sharing this look on the here!

This skirt has made several appearances on the blog and my Instagram, so it's probably no secret that I love it! Its flowy but voluminous, so pairing it with a fitted shirt is necessary. I chose the black and white striped shirt because there is something about stripes that feels very Parisian. Toss on some nude pumps and my favorite tweed blazer and I'd be ready to hit the streets of Paris. But I'll settle for KC! :D

Events with Victoria Beckham For Target

Like many women, I am obsessed with Target and I am obsessed Victoria Beckham. Target is just wear I manage to get everything I need on a day-to-day basis.  Victoria Beckham is just the most perfect style icon in my eyes. I have literally followed her my whole life, starting from her time in the Spice Girls. In the 90s, I thought her mini lace dresses and crop tops were the best and now her style is just the most chic and posh, pun intended. So when I heard she was doing a collab with Target, I knew I would need to check it out.

When I purchased with dress, I didn't have an event in mind to wear it to, but I knew I would eventually have one. This is both my curse and my saving grace. There have been multiple times, much to my husband's dismay, where I'll purchase an outfit, knowing it will be worn… just not sure when… (But, hey, this worked in my favorite for a wedding we have coming up! More on that later :D)

I have become obsessed with this dress! It's a gorgeous body-con dress that hugs all the right places. I feel absolutely beautiful when I wear it. So far, I have worn it to a baby shower and my younger bother's college graduation, and one more event coming up. This dress, and many others, are still available at Target, and they're discounted now!

Seeing Through Rose Colored Glasses

rose_sunglasses_cover3.jpg

No, literally! My recent obsession has been rose-colored sunglasses. I first saw them start to pop up on Pinterest a few weeks ago and I was immediately in love! It seems like the perfect look for summer. They have such a chic, breezy, relaxed look to them. One of the things I love about the color Rose Quartz is it’s a light pink, which makes it perfect for a neutral. Personally, I would prefer Rose Quartz as a neutral because it’s a lighter, warmer color compared to the typical champagne/beige/taupe colors, and especially compared to black or white. Choosing neutral colored sunglasses is a wise move because they will go with practically every outfit. So Rose Quartz is perfect; a neutral with a twist!

Rose Quartz seems to be showing up everywhere since Pantone named it one of the colors for 2016. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve added Rose Quartz tops, dresses, and jewelry, but I never thought about sunglasses! I’ve always veered towards darker sunglasses but, for these gorgeous pairs, I’ll make an exception.

Below are some of the sunglasses I’ve been staring at online!

Thanks for reading!
