{Fashion} Love...Need...Want...Striped Tee Shirt Dress

I have just come to accept the fact that I will always be addicted to stripes and have stopped saying (aka lying to myself) that I am not buying another striped piece.

I recently snagged this Striped French Terry Knit Jacket on major sale and when I saw this super cute Striped Tee Shirt Dress, it was instant love, need and want! In BOTH colors!


It's no secret that I love tee shirt dresses for their comfort factor but the body hugging silhouette of this one definitely makes it stand out.

Swimsuit {Style} | Bringing Color To The Beach

Since I definitely plan to get my beach time in this summer, I inventoried the swimwear that I have on hand (a few pieces below and I have more in storage but I am not even going to bother searching for them) and it dawned on me that while my pieces are cute, they are basically black and I need some color in my life.

I debated buying a couple more of the Forever 21+ swimsuits like this one but this time in a couple of the bright colors (love this cute yellow color) but ended up going with these two, the Swim Sexy Cherry Plus Size High Waist Bandeau/Halter Bikini and the Shore Club Plus Size Fluer Flounce Swimsuit.

You think they are colorful enough? Haha! 
I can't wait until they arrive!


{What I Wore} Striped Crop Top + White Leather + Floral

Happy Independence Day lovelies!

I will exercising my right to work today and it's all good. Yesterday was such a fab day. We started if off biking along the lakefront and ended it dancing and singing along to Earth Wind & Fire at Ravinia (video).

Perfect #SummertimeChi.

I wore this look on my wedding day after I got out of my dress and heels. I normally am not much of a pleat girl but I am so in love with the faux leather box pleat skirt. And this striped jersey crop top is the perfect length, it shows just enough skin. And my floral and striped flats work with EVERYTHING!

{Life} My July To Do List

Happy July Lovelies...

Seven months in and it may not have been obvious on the outside looking in but, as noted here, 2014 has been challenging thus far.

But as the months have gone by, mother nature has been more loving weather wise, and some really good things have happened {getting married being one ;) - more to come}, so I have been slowly coming out of my funk and getting back into the groove of life.

So, in the spirit of keeping that groove moving and hopefully keeping me accountable, I have decided to create monthly to do lists for myself that I will share here on le blog.


Some of the to do things will be purely about pleasure but some, ok a lot will be about me getting back on track and caught up with business things, my health, blog things and home life things.

BLOG To Do
Get the last days of #Rock10for30 edited and posted (lesson learned for next time, must do this daily, preferable right after the shoot. ugh)
Get the blogger features that I mentioned weeks ago up (come on my little assistant)
Work on my blog redesign which I started/abandoned in March

BUSINESS To Do
Connect with my clients and rectify/address any issues
Resume my search for office space
Load Closet Fete with the pretty new things that have been sitting in boxes
Get two new tees out (The Parental Advisory Curves Ahead Tee was a big hit)

LIFE To Do
Get my drivers license (long silly story)
Hit the beach at least once a week. I need time in my tent!
Bike the lakefront on a divvy bike at least 2 times this month
Get my SummerDance on at least 2 times this month
Gym/workout at least 4 times a week (including tai chi or zumba in the park)
Pull out the mini grill and get some vegetarian bbq on it

HOME To Do
Finally get this wall of stuff in storage!

There are tons more things I need to do, but the I think that's enough for now! ;)

What's on your to do list this month?
