Week's Best Looks: June 9th 2013.

Happy Monday!! This is a late edition to the Week's Best Dressed. I was  hoping to have it posted yesterday albeit I had a very busy, stressful, frustrating day - the least said about it the better. Let's move on to Fashion. This week we are seeing lots of Skirts, especially Pencil Skirts. The most popular ones are Mint Green, Stripped Black+White or Hot Pink Skirts. A lot of these Colored Skirts are paired with Simple Tees or Stripes on top. We have more Black+White Stripes through a couple of Girly, A-Line Dresses, the Chevron kind through a Lovely Green Maxi, as well as Rainbow ones through a Beautiful Maxi Dress by Target. Speaking of Dresses, we have some Fitted Sheaths, a couple of A-Line Styles including one in a Silvery Gray with White Polka Dots, a Wrap Style as well as a couple of Hi-Lo Dresses. And, lots of Shorts this week, after all it is their time. They are paired anywhere from Silver Pumps to Wedges. A couple of our Fashionistas are staying Fit & Stylish riding their bicycles. One Hot Mamma is showing off her Beautiful Baby Girl. We also have some Cropped Pants in this edition, a couple of Pretty Jumpsuits, a few Button Downs as well as a few Summer Sweaters, 2 of which feature Large Flowers in the front. As far as Shoes we see lots of Pumps, either White, Nude, Hot Pink or Silver. We also see lots of Wedges. The most Popular piece of Jewelry is a Statement Necklace, including a couple of Bubble Necklaces in Pastel. There are lots of Handbags and Clutches, as well as a few Summer Hats. Mint, Mustard and Hot Pink are the 3 Most Popular Colors.

Popular names this week: Lauren, Rachel, Ashley and Megan (2 of each). We have some Fun Names in this week like Stesha, Tegan, Bonnie, Elvy & Sorren. There are 17 new faces that I welcome this week, a few very popular-to-this feature faces as well as some 2nd and 3rd timers. As usual, if you like this post, please link back to your page, especially if I have featured one or several of your outfits in it. Let your readers & friends know about it. Thank you for reading, for your comments & for your time. =) Enjoy!!

My Own Best Look of this week is this Black+White Leggings/Cardigan Outfit.
I have been drawn to a lot of Black+White Looks lately. I like the Simplicity of this. I am wearing a Favorite item of Clothing which is Leggings with a Long Cardigan and adding some Stripes through my Baby Pink Tank underneath. This Outfit gets the Girly element from the Flower Pin of the Cardigan & the Edgy element from those Fun, Shiny, Silver Sandals. I added Simple but Dressy Drop Earrings. I felt Casual enough yet totally Put Together, in this.

  10. Thanks Ada for the feature :) By the way I cannot get over those sandals! I am looking for a pair in similar look for my summer vacation to wear with shorts or even dresses. I kind of like the silvery shades, can be dressy for dinners at the resort. Do you mind me asking where did you get yours? Hope you and Viv are doing fine :)

    1. Hi. You are welcome about the feature. Mine were actually purchased last year through Il Cammini which is an Italian Shoe Brand/Store, we have here in Europe. But they have identical to mine this year, either in Silver or Gold at Piperlime.com so check them out. I love them too. I wore them a lot last Summer. =)

    You know when I was booking my flights to Europe I actually considered Albania (and YOU!) as one of the places I might visit. It did not happen this time, but maybe next time it will :)

    1. Lorena Darling I just read this comment. Thank you so much for never forgetting about me despite how busy you are. Europe is great isn't it? You definitely should visit Albania sometime. I do want to let you know I am coming to the States though, so probably after November I should be back here.

      Hope all is well. Thanks again for thinking of me, Ada. =)
