Pretty in Pink


I promised myself I'd try to do a lot more layering this year.  For one, you can extend your wardrobe.  And two, I just don't wear my skirts too often.  I realize I have more skirts than I could ever wear but they pretty much collect dust in the closet.  Throwing on a dress takes much less thought (after you pick the perfect one).  Putting an outfit together with more than one article of clothing takes some planning and I'm determined to challenge myself more often.  






Dress- Gift from Jessica (via Modcloth) (remixed)
Skirt- Ebay (remixed)
Shoes- Steve Madden
Sunglasses- Quay
Bracelet- gift

These sunglasses were a birthday present from my husband.  I had been lusting after them for about a year (before they graced Keiko's face) when my friend Ashley wore them.  She's super cute and stylish and gave me the link to buy them.  At the time I was pregnant and felt too guilty to spend money on myself.  It was a wonderful surprise when Kevin decided to get them for me :).  I don't wear them too often, they are literally electric pink, but they always pump up an outfit when needed.

I've figured out  routine when taking outfit photos with Bianca.  I'll usually set up my tripod and take some test shots with her.  Once I get it right, I put her down in her playpen and shoot as quickly as I can!  Sometimes the test shots are cute and I'll include them in my post like I did above.  She's just too cute!

I'm getting my hair done on Saturday and I'm so very excited!  I haven't dyed my hair in almost a year so I can't wait to have something new.  I'll show you in a post next week!



  1. This is a darling outfit- I love fluffy, gauzy skirts like that and the sunglasses are just fun. Also liked the photo with Bianca too <3

  2. This outfit is so pretty. I've been dying to see these glasses on you! The color is so in yo' face, but you totally rock it without being over the top. I like the remix of this dress because the top is stunning. Also Bianca is the tiniest and cutest little baby.

    Also you better share a photo of your hair on instragram or twitter or something. Don't make me wait until the outfit post!

  3. Love the dress! And I look forward to seeing your new hair!
    Its great that you're working out a good routine for getting your photos done, sounds like you're getting pretty pro at this mothering business ;)

  4. So cute with your tiny bundle of joy!

    I'm sure you are ready for some new hair.

    That skirt is dreamy.


  5. Ever since you first styled this skirt, I've been tempted to get one of my own. I just don't know what to pair it with in my existing closet... a tank top seems perfect for the spring / summer!

    Love the test shot with Ms. B. Can't believe how quickly she's growing up! So cute!


  6. You are rocking those sunglasses!


  7. Gah, I love those sunglasses on you! And that skirt is soooo pretty--I may have to borrow it sometime ;)


  8. These sunglasses are AMAZING and you rock them so well! Also, I am seriously impressed that you took these with Bianca. I make excuses that I can't use my tripod for some reason or another even when I work from home all day!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Love this outfit.. and those sunglasses are so pretty!

    The test shot with Bianca is pretty adorable :D

  10. Gorgeous! I'm kind of in love with your bright pink sunglasses. Those are right up my alley. So fun and colorful! I love your tulle skirt too. You always look so pretty. The test shot with Bianca is adorable too.


I read and appreciate every single comment!
