The Sunday Showcase Linkup, June 2018 - The Prettiest I Felt Last Month.

Happy June Everyone!!! Here we are, at the 4th "The Sunday Showcase" Linkup where I am joined by my friends KELLYANN from This Blonde's Shopping Bag and CHRISSY from Granola and Grace. This week is also Kellyann's very special, big 50th Birthday and she has dedicated her post to her birthday and her thoughts on turning 50! I love that she wore a very classy and effortless LBD for this very special Showcase Linkup and I too joined her with my own Fun Little Black Dress. Go visit Kellyann's blog today and wish her a Very Happy Birthday. She is the sweetest and looks fab at 50!! Meanwhile Chrissy talks about her current favorite jeans and she looks fantastic wearing them with a blue denim jacket on top and the most adorable peplum top. I also super love her circle straw crossbody bag. In her post Chrissy is showcasing a cute local boutique too and sharing some adorable pieces from there.

I mentioned on my last post where I posted a beautiful poem, how May was such a difficult month for me, a month filled with tears, sickness, an accident and unhappiness. But in the beginning of this week (in very late May), after finally feeling a lot better, one afternoon I wore this Pretty Off-Shoulder Little Black Dress in this Ethnic Mosaic Pattern and I felt so pretty in it. As a matter of fact, this is the Prettiest I felt all May. This is the Prettiest I felt last month and I think the pictures and my genuine smile show it! I purchased this dress last Summer from Target (from their youthful Xhilaration line) and I have only blogged it once last year. But IRL this was like the 3rd or 4th time I have worn it. I love the muted Black+White Pattern and that oversized pom-pom trimmed ruffle cascading around my shoulders. With a bright fuchsia lipstick, a little bit of mascara and a touch of bronzer, I felt like my natural pretty self - a woman who doesn't wear a lot of makeup. And this dress is so pretty and fun on its own that all I wore is my Pomegranate Circle Stud Earrings by Loft and my Fun, Red Glass Stone Cocktail Ring. My Taupe Ghilly Wedges and Buttery-Soft Nude Crossbody Bag completed off the look. My friend loved how I looked and made sure to compliment me. When was the last time you felt the prettiest you have in a while?! What types of clothes, dresses or outfits make you feel pretty?! Have you purchased any cute dresses at Target lately (I haven't)?! You can answer all these questions for me in the comments below and join The Linkup at the very bottom, too. Thanks!! =)

 Below, are my Favorite Two Outfits linked up during May's Sunday Showcase. Both ladies look so pretty for Spring! Also, stop by the other co-hosts blogs to see WHO they have featured, today! =)
April who is a fellow Mommy+Me Blogger from Michigan, wore 'A Figure Flattering Dress for Any Body Type' complete with matching white tasseled earrings and classic black strappy stilettoes bringing out the cute black polka dots. I have actually eyed this pretty polka dot dress for a while and they still have it online. Speaking of pretty dresses from Target, this is a current beauty from Xhilaration's line, just like my dress today.
Nistha suggests you 'Get Summer Ready' by wearing a lot of white and fun mirrored sunglasses. Her harlem-style aqua pants are fun and she pulls them off. And I love her white slingback kitten-heel pumps. Looking so street-chic and modern!


Happy 50th Birthday Dearest KellyAnn!!
