Floral & Yellow:

I am wearing:
Yellow top: Vintage (thrifted)
I LOVE the ruffly sleeves!
Skirt: Anthropologie (Mom's closet)
Shoes: Nine West (buffalo exchange)

I've been wearing a lot of yellow lately (and a lot of skirts)
If my husband liked me in baggy tee-shirts- you can bet your butt I'd be
wearing baggy tee-shirts all the time,
But when he stops and notices little things I do and says
"Those earrings look so good on you."
"I really love when you wear lipstick."
It only encourages me to buy more shades of lipstick, or wear earrings to the pool!
(I was pregnant when my Mom purchased this skirt, and I was fuming when she told me what size she got it in. I was like "Couldn't you have gotten a size ...... TEN?! But months later, I can finally fit into it. Thanks Mom!)

my guys wanted to show off
what they were wearing too:
Last night my mom and I had dinner and Conrad showed off his walking skills
(about ten-ish steps).
I was glad my Mom got to see him walk!
My little man is about to be a BIG walking machine!
I'm super excited!


  1. You are so beautiful. Looking thin and florally and SO GORGEOUS. I love the outfit. And that Dustin and Conrad wanted to show off their outfits. Thank you so much for your encouragement on my blog the past few days. It means so much.

  2. GAHHHH I LOOOOVE that top!

    Also, I'm pretty sure my husband has that same shirt your's is wearing.

  3. Thanks ladies.
    When I tried on the top, all I kept thinking was
    "some sweet old lady somewhere once wore this top!"
    It just didn't seem like something I might find at the mall...had to be an old ladies!

    Thanks amanda. Dustins had that shirt for-ever.

  4. SO Beautiful you have lovely taste, Its not the usual trendy stuff,you'll be proud when you look back at pics of you younger and think "what a hot mama I was" Conrad had good taste too ;)I wish I was brave enough for lipstick :(

  5. I cannot believe you found that shirt thrifting! OH I am jealous. SO so jealous. You look amazing.

    You definitely lucked out on that super cute top! I call this the "MAD MEN" look ;)It's really starting to become trendy, it's my favorite! Wish I had somewhere to dress up like that all the time. I miss work :( I used to love dressing up for work. Maybe this weekend husband and I will play dress up and go out :)

  7. I love your outfit! You look so sophisticated and put together. I only wish I could pull off outfits like this all the time.

  8. Mara- you're always wearing outfits that I would wear. I love your fashion. You always think outside the box! I love that!

    Summer- thanks! I don't watch mad men, but i hear it's super addictive. Trendy is a-ok with me, although I always think, once my outfits start popping up at walmart and target, then I've def become too "trendy" that's why I love finding unique pieces at second hand shops. It's never fun when everyone you see is wearing the same outfit as you are. You don't want to be too "trendy" :( Oh well!

    I wore this to church sunday-but I usually don't wear skirts & dresses during the week. Dressing up puts me in a good mood. It's like a creative outlet for me. Even if we just go somewhere for an hour, I'll put on something decent and then take it right off when we get home and be in yoga pants the rest of the day. <3

  9. Oh, I love the outfit! Nice name too! ;)


  10. love the yellow shirt!!
