Monochrome lines

Hi there friends and happy happy Monday! Erica is nothing but a blurb around here. The storm is pretty much nothing right now. Orlando is  pretty much OK. Just a few storms here and there throughout the next couple of days. Flooding is now a concern. Oh joy. The joys of hurricane season! Today, I was able to get a tiny child outside to play for a bit before the sky started to fall on us, again. We played ball and in the sandbox. Well, he played, I took the time to get some outfit of the day pictures out of the way quickly   A. before the heat melted off my makeup and B. Before it rains. Again.

Forever 21vest with H&M dress

Vest Forever 21 / Dress H&M /shoes Justfab shanghai

I am keeping it stripey and monochrome today. Very basic and such. It is so freakishly hot here that I didn’t dare wear pants today! Can you blame me?

hm dress and forever 21 vestI love the lace detail on this Forever 21 vest and it is so much fun to twirl in!


Or just be a dork in as you see here.




Ahh summer. I really honestly can not wait for some cooler weather. My hair just does better in it.


Since we are talking my hair. I had to put it up and the remote that I have to my camera I had in my mouth so there were a butt ton of pictures of me struggling with my hair. (by the way butt ton is an actual unit of measurement . Used in wine making to measure a lot of wine or something.)



I have to say, I kind of like it up today.





Got to chase a ball for a bit. We have too much fun.



Lots of fun was had before it started to get more muggy and started to look more like rain. We headed back inside for some Sesame Street.

    Beautiful pictures and I love your hair in this weather, your waves are so soft and natural you should totally wear it up like this more often!

    And that dress + vest go so well together but the show stoppers are those SHOES!!! Love them!

    So sorry to hear about the hurricanes, I honestly never think about how you guys are so affected by them. When would you say is hurricane season?

    • Stephanie September 2, 2015 at 7:02 AM

      Thanks Angie!!!! I call my hair the beast because you never know how it will behave. Lol. I love these shoes too!!
      Hurricane season officially starts around June 5th. But really don’t see much activity until fall. Warm waters and fonts that push everything around make for a very hectic weather time. But we lucked out this time. Only some flooding. Hurricanes are pretty scary especially when they sometimes have NO CLUE what they will do. Charlie was a prime example. Got to be prepared always. 🙂
