Shirt Dress Perfection

Thursday, May 28, 2015


Get the look:
Dress: Gap  and love this one from Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Love and I really want these

Hey Sparkles!

I had to showcase this Gap dress for y'all today. This dress has been a lifesaver, in all honesty. I found it on sale on, and sadly I no longer see this color optipm there anymore. Thankfully, I received this beaut in the mail literally the night before I left for ATL. It's soooo easy to style, clearly. I simply just threw it on and paired it with some earring and mini wedges. I can't wait to add a blazer, or switch out those wedges for converse.  This was perfect for my trip, it's so HUMID in Atlanta. And on this particular day, we were rushing and in the wedding frenzy, so I loved this little easy pick me up :)

All I gotta say is...I'm on summer yah (well, not quite on summer break but..just a couple of days away!).  I work all summer as a nanny, but it's still summer and I get to do summer activities with the kiddos, I love it!! I'm just in the best mood today, hope you are too! Have a great weekend, Sparkles! Meet you back here Monday!!

Happy Memorial Day!

Sparkles! Geez, a WHOLE month has gone by since I did my last post. That makes me sad, but I have been so busy and I put my blog on the back burner for a little bit. We are now in the wedding season wedding down and one more to go, all within one month!

We just finished up with my sister's wedding. She got married  in Atlanta, GA. It was so gorgeous and it was so fun to see everybody!! May 16th is a date that gives me butterflies whenever I see/hear it. It now holds two meanings: It's my sisters wedding anniversary and Wendell and I have been together for a solid 10 years, freak me out! How amazing is that? That's the day he asked me to "be his girl" (kinda but not really) when we were only 15 years old!

 I hadn't been to HotLanta since 2011....I loooooove that city. Since it had been so long since I'd been there, everything looked fairly odd to me. I never noticed how many TREES there are. Oh my gosh, it's literally a city in a forest...a huge city in a forest. So many trees....

Anyway, I took some awesome pics during this time that I think y'all will enjoy! Really, pictures mean a lot to me. I can look at almost every single pic I've ever taken and tell you what was going on before and after. I love it.
