Floral Tee and Acid Wash

Today I'm sharing this super cute tee that I scored at Ross. It's actually an XL from the maternity section-- score! Plus you can't beat that message. Believe in yourself! Arthur, anyone? I loved that show as a munchkin!

Hope everyone's weekend is going well! The weather is so nice here lately, I just can't get enough. I'm really going to miss our screened porch when we move. Hopefully the new place will have one too.

Hot Pink-ini

Hey babes! Hope it's wonderful in your part of the world! Things are good here in mine. :) We're looking desperately for a new home, but we have a few leads so for the moment I'm not in a full panic. I hate moving so much, gah! Things are changing a lot around here, but I'm staying positive and having faith that everything will work out for the best.

Today I'm sharing some more fatkini pictures! I can't decide if I like this one more than the first, but I definitely love it! It's so flirty and feminine. And I love showing off my shoulders! I thought the top was very supportive considering it's not underwire-- it does have some boning in the sides that help. And it comes with removable straps should the mood strike.

WELL, today was quite the day for me! I had an eary morning appointment with the lady doctor... and I somehow managed to get lost on the way. AHH! I'm terrible, terrible with directions so it's really not that surprising, but it was still pretty stressful. I finally managed to figure out where I was and was only a few minutes late. Yay!

Anyway, the real triumph is that I still rolled into work looking like a cute little sparkle! I am totally addicted to these pink sunglasses, and this top reminds me of Art Nouveau (which I love). Also, do those earrings not look like awesome little gills?

Fatkini Season

I'm back from vacation and bearing photos! We had such a great time. The weather was perfect the whole weekend and we came home today feeling relaxed and refreshed. We spent a lot of time on the beach this go around, and I have to admit that I was more nervous about wearing a bathing suit in public than I anticipated. It's certainly not my first Summer rocking a 2-piece, but for whatever reason I felt a lot of apprehension this trip. But after a few minutes of wonderful sunshine on my skin and I knew that I was totally great! I didn't even get any funny looks. Excellent trip all around.

I have a few more suits to share, but for the sake of not boring you with repetition, I'm going to try and space them out a little bit. I wore this one on our first night on the beach! The bikini top is from Asos and has a removable halter strap and underwire support. The mint bottoms are from Forever 21.

Buttercups and Bunnies

I think these might be my favorite outfit pictures! Today was such a beautiful day, and when I came home it was breezy and the sunlight was just perfect. There are these little yellow wildflowers popping up all over our property. And there were BUNNIES! I mean, come on. All that was missing was some little mice to sew a gown for me. Or maybe a poisoned apple, yanno. ;)

Tomorrow morning we'll be on our way to Florida for our vacation! It might be quiet here for a few days as a result, but when I come back I should have lots of photos to share. And more than a few fatkinis, too. In the meantime you can catch up with me on tumblr or instagram. All hail Summer!

Rosie Posie!

Hello again! Today I'm sharing a super duper cute dress that I still cannot believe only cost me $10 (!). The skirt is even lined with a little bit of tulle so that it poofs out nicely. Gah! I love it.

Please disregard the creepy bluish pallor of my legs! Hahaha. I am super pale and the blue carpet on my porch was reflecting onto my legs a little. ;) Hopefully I'll get a teeny tiny bit of color at the beach this weekend. Lord knows I don't really tan but I sure do freckle! ;)

Cobalt and Coral

Hey there, beautiful! Hope this Monday morning finds you well and happy. Our weather here has gotten really warm really quickly, and I have to say I'm loving it. I love Summer! Maybe it's just the Floridian in me, but I can't get enough of sunshine and cruising around with my car windows rolled down.

This outfit is the perfect thing to wear on a humid, warm day. The top is breezy, light chiffon. These pants are stretchy and not too constricting. They're also lighter than regular denim, so I wasn't roasting all day. ;)
