Slight Pattern Mixing and Neglected Vest Worn on a Date.

It is Tuesday and it is raining again. Story of Our Lives. Ehhhhh. The Baby is feeling a little better, though she has been real fussy (especially in the evenings) & throwing up for the past few days (before getting her shots). For all of you who are the praying type, keep her in your prayers and wishes for her to get well soon. I truly Appreciate it. The bad weather filled with rain and humidity certainly doesn't help matters. And they are predicting lots more rain for this month of April. Between getting less sleep these last few days myself, and the gray, dreary weather view from the outside, I am getting sleepier and more tired by the moment. Yikes.

So, I joined Bloglovin like most if not all of you. I hope this link below works so that you can follow me. It was easier than I thought and all my blogs from Google Reader got imported to Bloglovin, so whatever may happen to Google Friend Connect I won't loose you guys. So be kind and please follow me via Bloglovin. Thank You. =)

Today I am showing a recent look of how I styled this Sweater Dress with Lace Stencil Print. I actually hadn't worn this dress since a year ago. So I got it out of my closet to wear it again, before it is too warm out for it. This time I paired it with a Neglected Vest that has been on my closet for far too long and the bad part is that I love it but haven't worn it enough. I also like the Lapel neckline on the Vest, like a Classic Blazer. I am doing a Slight Pattern Mixing between the Lace-Print/Stripes on my Dress and the Floral Print on my Tights. Also, the flowers in those tights - which were purchased in March - are Cobalt/Navy & Olive Green which tie in with the Dress Color & the Scarf Color. I wore this to a Shopping & Lunch Date with My Husband where we left our girl with my Mother-in-Law and she had a blast with her Granddaughter. That is why I am also linking this outfit to Date Night.

    1. I agree. Dates are necessary especially after kids. We have only had a couple of them since Vivian is born and besides this one here, the other one only consisted of Coffee, a Coffee Date but I will take whatever.
