How To Style a Sexy Polka Dot Dress

I love where my body is currently and I am fitting into things that I hadn't be able to or fit super snug before but I still have some midsection and a bit of my arm area that I would love to tone a bit more.  So spending a lot on dresses from Nordstroms or items that I may not fit in a couple of months isn't really ideal for me, Boohoo has pretty affordable items that I can style a couple of different ways and still keep it classic and chic.

Weekly Wardrobe

Hey babes!

Today I am going to document my weekly wardrobe this week, I pretty much keep it simple during the week because I have to mostly chase J around. I love clothing like way too much and sometimes a lot of the outfits I wear during the week don’t actually make it over to the blog.

So I wanted to put up a post that would give you guys some insight on what I wear weekly. =] if this is something you guys like, please let me know.

Soft Nude Summer Midi Dress

I recently picked up a couple of items from Forever 21 because I needed a couple of things for our cruise later this year.  I feel like I am constantly talking about this cruise here on the blog but I really feel like this will be the beginning of a lot of traveling for us.

I have been proactively planning for the trip so last minute I am not running around frantically like a crazy person, I am sure that I will still be going a bit crazy since this is our first trip as a family of 3 and the longest trip E and I have also taken together as well. 

I am just so ready to go.  I will be highlighting a couple of the things I picked out from a few "hauls" I have done soon.  I have been strategically planning new outfits as I need to.  

I also love this dress because while it will be absolutely great for the cruise, it is also the perfect thing to throw on for an easy sunday funday with the family or to brunch with your girls. 

Apparently, Football is starting back up and my husband is going to have to deal with J while he watches it and I can get things I need to do done, by myself.  A girl can dream right, lol.

How to Style Polka Dots

When it comes to having to put together simple outfits for runnings errands while having J with me, I normally gravitate towards just jeans and a basic tee but I know that getting dressed and putting on make-up help me feel more like myself.

So today on the blog I am showing you how to simply style a polka dot top with jeans and a pair of loafers, while on a budget.

Ruffled Waist Belted Shorts

If you follow me on my insta-stories you know that behind the scenes I have been trying my best to get a little space in my house to photograph outfits.  I don't really have a ton of time away from the house or someone to take all of my photos either.

I don't currently make any money off of my blog so I am trying my best to build up my content in hopes to one day make some sort of living off of it but until then I can't really afford to hire a photographer so I do the job myself.

My set up is pretty basic, I have a few studio lights, a tripod and my sony A6000.  I have a remote timer and I use my phone to see if I am in focus it takes a few tries before I get it in focus and I don't look like a complete weirdo. 

I have been looking for some shorts with this ruffle waist because I feel like they are really in style this summer and look perfect for a vacation or a weekend out with the boys.  

I picked up this olive green color because it is one of my favorite colors and it also goes great with my skin tone. 

I paired it with this white Guess body suit because it makes tucking is look more seamless and is also comfortable and chic.  I will do a post on how and why to wear body suits.

Showing Off-The-Shoulder for Summer

Whew! This week is flying my loves and I can't believe the weekend is almost here.  

I wanted to share with you guys this new top I picked up from Old Navy.  It is absolutely perfect for the summer.  With the weather being so up and down here in all of the states {northern friends I feel for you} wearing clothing out of the house can be unpredictable to say the least. 

But we are in Houston and Texas heat can be no joke.  I love this top because it is perfect for taking J to the park and then transforming into the perfect evening outfit with just a change of shoes, or pants.  

I haven't showed shoulder in quite a while and with all of the off-the-shoulders cute tops I have seen all over instagram, I couldn't wait to get my hands on one.

I wasn't sure this color was going to suit me, but I really love it.  I have absolutely no green in my wardrobe besides camo and with the bright colors arriving for summer, I felt like this one was perfect. 

It is bright and colorful enough to wear all summer long, I am also super excited to pack it for our cruise later this year.  

I paired my off-the-shoulder with a pair of distressed denim and some sandals but I can see this with shorts and some vans or even some jeggings with pointy toed flat.  I can totally do some more insta-stories with how to pair outfits with shoes if that is what you guys are looking for.

Top: Old Navy
Jeans: American Eagle

The Perfect Traveling Flats

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with a couple of girl boss friends, we went to Galveston and ate dinner and walked around a bit afterward.

When we walked around my friend Stacy helped me out with some photos, and I desperately need to find a good photographer because y'all I have been trying to get some photos done at the house and it is not happening.

I found these cute flats at Target when I was doing some shoe shopping and I just had to have them because they would go perfectly with a simple dress, jeans or even shorts. I don't have a ton of black shoes because I got rid of a bunch of things recently and I was in need of something to use on the days that tan/brown wasn't going to work. 

Shoes: Target
Shirt: Target
Distressed Jeans: American Eagle
Lipstick: Milani Matte Naked

Denim High-Waisted Skirt + Basic Tees

Most weekends we don't have the pleasure of spending much down time alone together, we are normally catching up with family, or doing all of the things adults have to do. 

On Sunday, we went to eat lunch at Lee's Fried Chicken and Donuts, if you visit definitely try their Bacon, Onion, Jalapeno Marmelade, the Sweet Sriracha Syrup, and the Poblano Sauce.  We will have to visit again ourselves minus J, he was well-behaved it is just entirely too hard to stay clean while eating fried chicken and trying to feed a little one at the same time. 

Then we came home and relaxed.  We let J run wild upstairs (and it literally looks like a tornado hit our upstairs living room and his bedroom) until he literally crawled on both of us and fell asleep.

E took a much needed nap and I tried to nap but as soon as I finally fell asleep his alarm went off making sure we didn't waste our entire day sleeping, but it wouldn't have hurt to sleep a little longer.

Here are a couple of snaps from our day, plus outfit details below.
