Brown and Dusty Pink in a Girly Way.

Another day, another way to dress. Another Wednesday. Middle of the week is here - can't believe it. Are you ladies doing anything fun today or perhaps have anything planned for this weekend? Is the weather cooperating? Happy Hump Day!!

Today, I decided to pair this wide, Babydoll-style Dress with a Girly Cardigan with Chiffon Ruffle detail on the front. Both pieces are Neutrals. I love. I also added one more Neutral - My Beautiful & Comfortable Bow Ballet Flats in the prettiest Beige color. The Dress has Pockets. Do any of you NOT Love Pockets in Dresses & Skirts? Let me know, I am curious. The Belt is a Chocolate Brown, sort of a Faux Alligator Skin & I love the Circle Buckle which also incorporates that Alligator Skin on the sides. It is by The Limited (I want to say most of my belts are from there). I definitely feel this Loose Dress needs the Belt, especially now that I am not pregnant, even-though it is an Extra Small. I wish you could see the Headband because it has an Ombre Rhinestone Fish in Lavender, Silver & Pink. The band is thin Black Metallic, almost invisible. I also added a couple of my Newest Bracelets (purchased in March). What do you think of the overall outfit?

Hopefully, later tonight I will bring you my May Purchases. It was an interesting shopping month and Gasp!! I added many new things this month. Both =) and =( oh well...

It is June 4th and I realize I haven't yet posted an OOTD for this month. I have to rectify that, especially since I have a lot of un-posted outfits filling up the memory of my lap-top. Actually, I could go this entire month without wearing any outside clothes and still have enough fresh, new outfits to post at least 5 times a day. These outfits go from totally Summery to sort of Wintery because that is the weather we have had here for the past month, between 45 to 75 sometimes as high as 85 degrees. Bipolar, Crazy Global Warming, people! Right now, it is chilly enough to wear Tights or layer up, while yesterday at this time, bare legs were definitely a must!

I must say, as much as I love Color & wear a lot of Colors and have never been one to shy away from any color, I also love Black, White or Black+White paired together. I think Black+White is so Chic, Easy, Simple & Classic no matter what the occasion or whether you are going for a Casual or a Dressy Look. I also think Stripes besides being oh-so-cute are so versatile. I love Stripes (who doesn't?!) and to me they are a Neutral, especially Black+White Stripes. I think I may have worn this top only once before on the blog. Today's Outfit is simple, it can be interpreted as both Casual or Dressy. You can wear it to lunch, work, brunch or even a shower. Actually, you can get away with this for cocktails & appetizers after work, too. The Skirt is slightly Pleated and it has Pockets. It also has a bulit-in Belt with a Plastic Rectangle Buckle. And I might have purchased this V-Neck top because it has thin Stripes (which may be dizzy if looked at for a long time, but I still love it). It is actually a Light Knit (Sweater type). I added my Silver Rhinestone Butterfly, Satin Headband (my Necklace is a Silver Rhinestone Bunny by the way) and my Orange+Green Colorblock Ballerinas for some Color & I felt ready to tackle anything the day would give me ahead. What do you think?

F.Y.I. We went shopping that day mostly for Mommy, so the photos of Vivian and I are at a Boutique featuring American Brands (brings me a little close to my second home) named "American Fashion & Jewelry" that someone I know (a neighbor) owns. I purchased a few things (coming in my May Budget Post, soon).
