Hi friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend?

I certainly cannot complain about mine. I flew out to Dallas on Friday because my best friend, Ashley, is having pregnant with a baby girl, so Katey, from Chronicles of Frivolity, and I threw her a baby shower on Saturday in Fort Worth! It was really, really fun to see so many people come out and show her so much support and love! She isn’t due for a little bit so she still has quite a bit to put together in the nursery and, after the shower, she is pretty much set! It is so crazy {and, seriously, AMAZING} all the things that are available for mom’s and baby’s these days. I had a blast looking through her registry, deciding what to get her, and also putting together her stroller with her the other night. It had everything she needed and more!

I wore this beautiful embellished midi dress to the shower. It made me feel like a princess which, I thought, was perfect for a shower for a baby girl. It runs a bit small so definitely go up a size. I’m wearing a size 2. What I love about it is the way it flows as you walk, the small ruffle detail at the collar and how you don’t need to wear much else with it. There’s enough detail on the dress that all you need is a simple pair of heels, pearl earrings, a pretty pink lipstick …. and you’re set!

Aside from the shower … on Friday, when I arrived, I shot quite a few looks with Angie Garcia, toured the new rewardStyle office and then went on a small shopping adventure. If you follow me on Snapchat, you know about how I stumbled across TWO pairs of shoes that I have wanted for quite some time but NEVER thought would come out again. And, actually, the exact Prada loafers I’ve always wanted, snd ended up finding and buying at North Park’s Nordstrom in Dallas, aren’t online. They’re a cognac-colored calfskin leather loafer with gold hardware on the top but, on Nordstrom’s website they’re only available in that color combination in suede [instead of calfskin leather]. The guy said the only reason they had that pair, that I ended up buying, was because they were a return. I’ve looked online everywhere and haven’t found them, but will keep looking for you guys if you like them as much as I do. They’re nothing fancy but they’re SO comfortable and PERFECT to wear with a cute, casual outfit. If you want to shop the ones that are available, and similar styles, here’s a roundup:

[The other pair I bought aren’t online, but I’ll be wearing them a lot this Fall. I’ll say that and share what they are later, when they’re available!]

So, last night, there was a really bad storm that came through the Dallas / Fort Worth area and my flight got cancelled so I had to stick around one more night. I never mind having to stay in Dallas longer but I am hoping to get on a direct flight home at some point today because I really miss Fish. I felt like I had JUST gotten home to him and then had to leave again BUT … thankfully, after this, I’m home for awhile. 🙂

SALE ALERT >> MAC Lipsticks are currently 15% off! My latest favorite is the one I’m wearing in today’s post. It’s called ‘Give In’. I also love ‘Pink Plaid’, ‘Creme D’Nude’, ‘Creme Cup’, ‘Fleshpot’, ‘Soar’ and ‘Saint Germain’.

Alright, ladies! Thank you so much for stopping by and hanging with me for a bit. I’ve got a lot of collaborations in the works on the back end of the blog and can’t wait to share them all with you … one includes a fun cooking post for 4th of July! Wish me luck on that one, okay? Hah! Anyway.. make it a great start to the week, and hope you’ll come back and see me again tomorrow! xo.
