Weekend Uniform

1. Kimono: Xhilaration (30% Off) | 2. Purse: Miztique (15% Off) | 3. Bracelet: Charming Charlie (30% Off) | 4. Earrings: Charming Charlie (25% Off) | 5. Dress: BP (40% Off) | Heels: BP (15% Off)

I seriously have been wearing an outfit extremely similar to this one on constant repeat lately and it is just the easiest. A simple black dress can go with just about anything, like a cargo vest, jean jacket, a zillion different kimonos... You get the picture. It's a staple. I absolutely love this kimono though. The blushy deep lavender color is so rich and the floral and ruffle details are just perfect. These low lace up heels are the epitome of transitional and they will work perfectly all the way into early fall. I paired the rest of this outfit with black accessories to keep things simple. These pieces are all a great deal right now and all ridiculously versatile. I hope you are enjoying these weekly sale posts. It is the best way to get good deals in front of you before they are sold out. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!

Casual Layers

Pullover: Caslon | Jeans: DL1961 | Sneakers: Adidas | Backpack: Topshop | Lip Liner: MAC in Staunchly Stylish | Lip Color: Bare Minerals in Slay

I don't know if your weather is anything like ours here in San Diego, but I find myself changing at least twice if not three times a day to accommodate it. It's brisk in the morning, downright hot during the day and the second the sun sets, it may as well be fall again. Layers are the easiest solution and this grey pullover is the absolute perfect layer to add to your closet for this time of year and even to have on hand for chillier summer nights. It is super lightweight and so sassy with its lace up detail. I have a feeling I will be getting quite a bit of use out of it, especially with the later nights we have coming up with fair season around the corner. If you don't own a pair of these Adidas (which my nephew pronounces Aww-Dee-Dahs) you need them in your life. They are sooooo comfortable with their arch support and generous width. I love the navy color, but they also come in the sweetest baby pink. I paired this outfit with casual white jeans and a convenient backpack that will be perfect for being on the go in the next few weeks.

You guys, we have so much fun stuff going on over the next few weeks. It's May!! My birthday is around the corner, Mother's day is right after that, and this weekend we will be celebrating Tony's parent's 50th wedding anniversary. We think there will be somewhere around 70 people attending this party and it should be a blast celebrating such a huge milestone. Not many people can say that they have been married for 50 years so it is definitely an occasion that deserves to be celebrated to the nines. Tony's parents have four successful, married children, nine grandchildren and are the absolute sweetest. They still play tricks on each other and drive each other crazy on occasion. I am just so thankful for the sweet example of what a successful and happy marriage looks like to all of us. I will probably have a full recap of the event up sometime next week. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
