New Moon

Thanks to www.MoonstoneShop.com for sponsoring this post!

We had a brief heatwave at the end of last week, it was up to 100°! What better than a heatwave to make me feel like dressing a little bit bohemian? I was heading out to dinner at Bartaco with my sister, so I grabbed this fun mixed print slip dress and paired it with the Rainbow Moonstone jewelry that I'd just received from www.moonstoneshop.com. All of the pieces are handmade in Florida with genuine moonstone and sterling silver, and some incorporate other stones, like the lovely turquoise in the pendant.

As I don't wear too much silver, I forgot that I didn't have a chain for the pendant, but then I found this silver choker which belonged to my mother, and conveniently chokers are having a moment again. Naturally my favorite piece is the ring, I just love wearing delicate little rings on my index finger and www.moonstoneshop.com has so many other rings which would be fabulous for stacking.

Under the Blossoms

I accept that I have the ability to change the direction of my life.

I know, the blooms are long since gone, but I'm stretching things out a bit.

I don't wear this pleated maxi skirt too often, even with my best efforts to dress it down (this not being my best) it still feels fancier than my life demands. I suppose I could argue that part of the reason I started this blog was to give myself a reason to put more effort into my daily outfits than I might otherwise. Even still, after church, breakfast, and these photos (on a day we walked, despite the spring chill) I swapped the skirt for a pair of joggers, the blazer for an oversized cardigan, and resumed my true homebody nature.

Bigger Than a Bread Basket

I dare to be myself at all times.

I wore this outfit a few weekends ago to my Grandmother's 90th birthday, it is always a fun occasion when my whole family is together and it happened to be a gorgeous day warranting the debut of the dress I picked up at J.Crew Factory.

As I mentioned before, anytime I carry the bamboo bag, I always get lots of compliments, or comments, such as my aunt asking if there was bread it in, assuming that the spot I'd placed it on the table (butter adjacent) meant it was a bread basket. She was surprised when I told her it was my purse!
