Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

Today I'm styling a top I received courtesy of MY Fashion Crate this past weekend. If you watched my unboxing video this past weekend, it's the piece I wasn't sure was a top or dress. Though I loved the print when I first saw it in the package, I honestly wasn't expecting the beautiful ruffle details on the arms, which makes it that much more beautiful! I absolutely love it and might wear it to a baby shower I'll be attending this upcoming weekend. 

As we know, there's nothing groundbreaking about floral prints for spring, it's certainly expected, which makes shopping for them a bit more challenging, as you may feel the need to look for pieces that feature the pattern, but in a much more fresh and inspiring way. At least I do. I like to look for unique color combinations, as well as different florals, too (remember this post?). I also love details that make the piece that much more special, such as ruffles or perhaps a lace-up detail. 

Ruffles are one of my favorite details though because I love the dimension and movement it adds to an outfit and it can certainly be flattering. I know when some of us think of ruffles, we think of overwhelming styles that are froo froo and look a bit gaudy. You want to look for pieces that have the detail, but have it layered in a way that's not overwhelming by either having it in only some areas of the piece or just balanced out visually (like this top I styled not too long ago). 

You may also want to be mindful with how it flatters your particular figure. For example, if you have fuller hips, a floral printed blouse with ruffle details would be a great option for balancing out your curves in a flattering way. If, on the other hand, you're busty and wish to avoid placing additional volume in the area, you can opt for a floral printed maxi with ruffle details. 

What are some ways you like to wear florals? Are there any specific details you look for when shopping for them?

I hope you found some inspiration for wearing florals and ruffles this season in a way that's fresh, flattering and far less boring! Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends, and I look forward to seeing you all again on Friday!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

After a full week of what seemed to be non-stop rain and cool temps, I'm so happy to be starting off the week with some warmer weather again! When it's nice out, I've been reaching for these Franco Sarto mules. They're incredibly comfortable and go with just about everything in my wardrobe. What I love is that they effortlessly dress up any outfit, so I feel more put together when strolling around with Aviah in the most simple outfit.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

First, I'd like to thank all of you for your incredibly kind words on last week's Mother's Day post. I loved reading how some of you other mamas could relate to what I've experienced so far and the support all of you in general showed. I also want to briefly mention that I'm trying to get pack on track with my regular posting schedule starting next week. I mentioned in this post that we found out my mother-in-law has stage 3 stomach cancer. Since that post, she's been in and out of the hospital (mostly in) and has undergone quite a few surgeries. We've all been taking turns in spending time with her in the hospital, which has of course effected my availability in scheduling content for the blog. Things seem to be somewhat improving, which will enable me to work on content and interact with you all once again.

Happy Friday my sweet friends! 

With Mother's Day being this Sunday, I thought it would be the perfect time to feature Aviah on the blog. She's only made an appearances a handful of times and as promised, I'm featuring her again. You guys, doesn't it feel just like yesterday I was sporting a bump? She's 10 months old and I still sit here scratching my head wondering how and when did this all happen, it's crazy!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

As many of you know, I've been testing a few moisturizers for the past several months and for the most part, I've been quite satisfied with the results I've noticed with each moisturizer I've tried. As I was nearing the end of the one I've been recently using, though I loved that moisturizer, I was thinking about testing another brand, but I didn't know which one should be next, so I kept holding off. I typically like stock up on a product when I notice I'm nearing the end, so that I don't run out and have absolutely nothing to use. I still had some time to think about which product I'd like to try, so when I received the Influenster Vox Box with the OleHenriksen C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme to test out, I was very excited and eager to try. So much so that I didn't both finishing the one I'd been using, instead keeping it on stand by should this one not work out for me.
