Friday, Friday I am so happy you’re here! Well I did it, 5 posts this week! That’s a record around here and it feels good to set a goal and accomplish it. I hope you’ve enjoyed the skirt series, I had fun putting it together. The funny thing is that since taking the pictures and publishing these posts I’ve discovered even more ways to wear this old floral skirt of mine! No doubt I’ll snap some pics and share them one of these days. But let’s get to today, my 5th and final post in this series. I am also including a few Friday Favorites in today’s post and I’m linking up with Andrea,Erika, and Narci.
Let’s get right to today’s look because it includes one of my favorites: POLKA DOTS! Yes, I’m jumping on that crazy train called pattern mixing once again. They may be hard to see in the photos but there are tiny white polka dots on my hot pink button up. For some reason when I wear this top I feel the need to pull out my pearls and that’s just what I did here!
I thought it would be a good idea to show you the skirt with black shoes so you can see the difference. The black shoes make my legs look shorter and just seem to bring the whole look to an abrupt halt! Are you convinced that nude is the way to go? Nude shoes are definitely my favorite!
And now are you ready to mix it up a bit with a skirt or two? If you haven’t tried pattern mixing yet, why not? Look for colors that ‘go’ together and prints that play nicely together; one larger, one smaller. Give it a whirl, friends!
Another favorite of mine? Having my family all under the same roof! I keep saying this but what a year his has been. After all I’ve dealt with in the last year I keep coming back to the importance of the love of my family. Listen, I’ve been let down and disappointed in people BIG TIME in the last year and it has hurt my heart but the love of my husband and sons never fails. I’m grateful to God for choosing this husband of mine for me and blessing us with our two incredible sons. We have fun plans for the summer and I am looking forward to all the memories we are going to create.
Happy weekend and I look forward to seeing you back here next week. Guess what’s coming up? Bathing suit season and we’re gonna address it right here! So, that’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today, what’s in yours?
