Weekend update and shirt dress day.

Hi friends and happy Tuesday! I feel like it is still Monday for some weird reason. I guess because everyone was home yesterday. Got to love extended weekends. Although for me it doesn’t really seem like much of a difference to me. Over the weekend I got quite a bit done. Mostly errands which is fine. We went to the mall with the tiny child to let him play in the playground without being eaten alive by bloodsuckers. Like today, we went to the park and lasted a whole 15 minutes before we got all of our blood drawn out by some pesky bugs. And I am super allergic! Which may be why I am having such a hard time writing today. I am swollen and feel awful.

Good times right? Well, let us talk about today’s outfit.For today I went with a cute shirt dress that I got over the summer from MANGO and today I feel like the dress and I are not playing nice with each other at the moment. Now, fall is creeping very slowly around the corner. And here in the sunshine state we can get by with summery dresses a bit longer. We embrace the tropical print a lot longer. It can still be in the 90s in Nov. YUCK!  And I picked out a very simple dress to wear that is kind of fallish and still summery today.

It may just be the fact that I feel miserable right now and need to take a benedryl. And the dog was hunting a squirrel in the above pic. It saw him. Hahaha.

MANGO shirtdress and aldo heels

I also brought out the Jay M. Bag I got from IFCHIC. Which I can not wait to show a wish list for that as we get closer to the 24th. And I love my leopard print heels from ALDO!




I could so use another cup of coffee! And why oh why did I choose TODAY to try to potty train the little lad.


And now some ELSA updates!


I am now adding glitter to the dress, this dress has hand sewn sequins on it and lots of glitter. The dress is pretty heavy. But that is OK.


This glue is amazing! And you wash the garment after it is dry 72 hours and you have a glitter that wont budge.



I had to get into the spirit of the situation. 🙂

She needs one size up. What a rolley polley.


Steal the style!

    I hate it when it’s hot, and the mosquitos are out to bite. I’m fortunate that we don’t have many mosquitos in my city. I love how green everything in the pictures though. We are so dry over here, we really need the rain.

    • Stephanie September 9, 2015 at 10:47 AM

      Thanks I am still sick from the bite I got yesterday. Or it may be a bee sting. Either way my hand is a swollen hot mess. 🙂 I wish we didn’t have that many mosquitos. Green every where you go here, green and palms. 🙂 We have had TOO much rain. Thanks for stopping by my blog! 🙂

    Such a wonderful dress and it fits you perfectly! I’m normally not gaga into shoes, but I love those heels so much in this outfit. Unique without taking the attention away from the dress. And I’m super excited to see the finished results of Elsa! Please keep us all updated! Thank you for being so wonderfully talented!

    • Stephanie September 9, 2015 at 10:44 AM

      Thanks Molly!!!! The shoes are amongst my faves. I like that the heel is wedgish. The Elsa dress is still a work in progress but I think I am almost done! 🙂

      Thanks Yukova!! She is a mix breed. The vet thought she had some munchkin in her but I don’t know really. She has American short hair and something else. She is really little. And your blog is fantastic!

    • Stephanie September 9, 2015 at 10:11 AM

      Thanks!! I ran out of glitter!! I need to get more! Yeah, I lightened my hair, I actually prefer this shade of blonde. I need to get a purple shampoo eventually. Lol.
