Pineapples are having quite the little party for themselves right now huh? No longer relegated to umbrellas in daiquiris, pineapples are all over the place including this skirt that I’m pretty obsessed with right now. So comfortable and soft, flirty and fun but not too short and best of all, under $20 right now. See you can be a little trendy when you find something that’s the perfect combination of fun and affordable.
Someone who’s not having a little party for themselves right now is me since now I’m trying to catch up with life and all the other work that got pushed to the back these last few weeks. Add to that a bit of a sleepless night from a small human with an ear ache and this Cinco de Mayo could use a pick me up. No complaints though. The weather is beautiful and I’m looking forward to spending some time outside later this afternoon, possibly with a cocktail with a pineapple on top.
Wait it’s Monday again already? Hoping you all had a great Easter/Passover weekend. My mom is in town from Miami and is making sure my kids are eating their weight in candy. I, on the other hand, am trying to keep my chocolate intake to a minimum so I can still fit in to a dress for Derby.
Today’s number is kind of a mix of a regular old outfit post and a Kentucky Derby style post. There’s no hat but this Shoshanna Sheath is beyond perfect for the track. But since I didn’t have a hat to pair with this pretty, I kept it off the series. No worries, I’ll have a couple Derby posts coming your way this afternoon.
The great thing about a solid, detailed dress like this is that it’s simple enough to wear to a ton of events. Switching out jewelry and shoes make it really versatile to wear all summer. The color will even transition well to fall so you won’t have to bury it in the back of your closet come September. I have a similar green Shoshanna dress that I’ve worn (and lent to tons of friends) a million times.
This week has gotten away from me. With Derby coming up, we’re going in to overdrive at my office. Add to that Drew going out of town and trying to keep up everything has left me frazzled. Like Miss Frizzle frazzled. Say that five times fast.
With the mess of meetings we’ve been running around to lately, I’ve been getting more dressed up for work. Since work wear for me can tend to veer in to the black/gray combo – I’ve been making the conscious attempt to get more colorful when it comes to business casual.
It’s safe to say that this outfit fits that criteria. Print mixing isn’t always my forte but I figured you’ve got to try it to see if it works. And since I can’t help but find a crazy large collection of polka dots and stripes in my closet, it’s one of my only print mixing options. So this might not be grade A print mixing but it’ll do. Hey, at least it keeps things interesting.
Happy Friday friends! If you’re going to any St. Patty’s Day parades, be sure to throw back a green beer for me (since my birthday is St. Patty’s day, I just assume – incorrectly but whatever – everyone wants to celebrate my big day). We’re heading to Cincinnati for a friend’s wedding. I’m taking my camera so I’ll do my best to do some wedding style spotting while I’m there.
