That tropical flare and great shoes.

As I sit here waiting for my son to finally settle down for his nap. I am wondering about getting another cup of coffee and whether or I should eat another chocolate cookie. Have you had days like that? I was just wandering in out of my closet today thinking what to wear, what to wear. I went for the tropical maxi dress that I bought from Shein. It has long sleeves, so the great thing is that I can roll up the sleeves. I rolled them up and grabbed a great statement necklace.


OK, I really need to stop forgetting I have this dress. It is just a joy to wear. I figured rolled up sleeves would make it more “casual”. Ahh who am I kidding you can never be over dressed.



My hair is being crazy again. And I am weak. I flat ironed it when I was trying so hard to get a tiny person down for his nap. He did not take his nap today guys. HE also didn’t sleep last night.



He is running around the back yard as you can see.(this was this morning.)



I have noticed there is always a hair tie on one of my wrists a lot.



This dress is so much fun to wear. And it actually is pretty long.  It is an amazing dress.  Just amazing.  The print is perfect for summer or vacations. It has a bit of a train in the back. But, then I am a bit height challenged.


I also am trying to get other stuff done today. Believe it or not I have a great Tuesday shoeday post that I am working on, featuring some of my shoes from my shoe collection. Can not wait to show ya!  And I am going to work on some June faves since it is almost the end of June EEK! This weekend is already booked of stuff. IKEA shopping trip and having a day out with hubby and tiny child for some belated bday fun. Which by the way, I got a present from the cats..they just love their MAMA. And they are both on SALE!

    I’m so curious how your experience with Shein was. I’ve read some good and some bad reviews about the company, but there are some cute things I’ve seen so I’m wondering if I should just bite the bullet.
    Love the windblown look in your pictures too! So pretty!

      Thanks Amanda!I will be happy to answer your question!! 🙂 Love questions like this!! I think a lot of problems is shipping. Here in the US it takes a bit for the items to get from china to US. Customs is where a lot of things get held up in que. There has been issues of things not getting out on time from what I have seen from other people. It kind of makes me think they make things more to order than have a warehouse. I once was wondering why something didn’t get shipped on time so I contacted their Customer service and it got handled pretty quickly. I have had delayed shipping more often ordering something that comes from USA, at least with Shein, Lookbook, Chicnova, etc I know it may take a bit because of the whole globe thing.I say never order something you need in 2 weeks or less from anywhere. I haven’t had a really “bad” experience with them. I have seen people talk about how their items didn’t fit right etc. It is important, even if you are say shopping with Express or any retailer to have a tape measure handy. I never shop online without one. That way you can know if moving up a size is necessary. That trusty dollar bin tape measure has saved my life with online shopping, even with! SO rules for shopping with an online clothing store is a. GEt a tape measure. B. Keep in mind where it is coming from. C. if something is taking longer than really expected reach out. Email with SHEIn works best. D. Don’t order things you need for something in the very near future less than 2 weeks. Sorry for the long response. 🙂 I really do enjoy shopping with them.
