{playing dress up}

I am celebrating this week. Actually, my legs and feet are celebrating. It finally warmed up enough her to break out my skirts and sandals, and that is just what I did yesterday and today for work.

In my last post I shared the cute dress I picked up at Target on Mother's Day. Well, I wore it yesterday and I love it even more now. It is my new favorite piece in my closet. Yesterday I paired it with a light blue cardigan for the office. I felt like Meg Ryan from You've Got Mail...my all time favorite movie.

Next time I wear it I might get brave and add a belt. Baby steps. :)

I love the detail on the neckline...

Dress: Target
Cardigan: JC Penney
Bracelet: Claire's
Earrings: Dillards
Sandals: Target

Today:

I have an extreme love/hate relationship with this sweater. I love the texture and style of it. I hate how it makes my mid-section look larger than it is. It adds a lot of bulk I guess. Or maybe the bulk is already there and I choose to blame the sweater. Either way here it is...


And apparently I need to work on my poses so I don't look like I'm missing a leg. Again...baby steps. :)


Sweater: Maurices
Black tank: Kmart
Skirt: Walmart
Sandals: Target
Bracelets: gift from my Mom
Necklace: Walmart

I won't be doing posts like this all the time, but I thought it would be fun to share my first two warmer weather outfits of the season. Maybe I will try to do a few from home as well, when I'm dressed more casually.

Happy Wednesday!

You look very "springy". "You've Got Mail" is one of my favorite movies (and soundtracks).
