Happy Sunday!! We had a great day in the pool with a friend that's visiting, had Tijuana Flats for lunch and just had a great day all around!

Cute as a button

Top - French Connection - family gift
Skirt - MAG by Magavano - friend gift

Purse - DIY by my aunt

This purse is another DIY project done by my aunt. She took a fabric purse that I already had, and sewed a bunch of beads and buttons on it. Since the purse has some reds, blue and black colors, I thought it would go great with this necklace and somewhat neutral outfit.

365th outfit

Shirt - Spense - Marshall's
Dress - Devon - thrifted
Shoes - Franco Sarto - DSW
Gold tone bracelets - thrifted
Necklace - family gift

Hello my dear readers!! Today's outfit makes it a 365th post and they are all about outfits. Also, if you have been paying close attention, I don't repeat outfits. It's a personal challenge that I created for myself to make it exciting to get dressed. Since I am not a morning person, my family will tell you.. I prepare my outfits ahead of time. Sometimes I actually pick out an outfit a night or two before and sometimes it's in my head, so in the morning I just have to get the items and throw them on. In order not to repeat a complete outfit, I keep track on my Archive page on how I have worn a certain item. The outfits on that page are sorted by the bottom part of the look, so I look at a skirt or pair of pants and then mix it with a different top, accessories and shoes. it sounds complicated, but once you are doing it, it's really easy. You should try it sometime.

Balinese goddess

Dress - Candie's - thrifted
Cardigan - 89th & Madison - Marshall's
Shoes - Mia - Macy's
Necklace - recent gift from Bali from mom
Earrings, bracelet - family gift
This pendant is a gift that was given to me by my mom, she brought it from her trip to Bali. Love you mom! I like to wear maxi dresses on the weekends, but this particular one is so pretty, I wanted to wear it to work by covering up my shoulder with a little cardigan. It's pleated and has the adorable floral print, all the more perfect to me. It moves to freely, I feel like I am floating in it. I keep on wanting to twirl in it, can you blame me :)

Bucket bag

Top - Espresso - family gift
Jeans - Forever21 - family gift
Shoes - Steve Madden - family gift
Bag - DIY by my aunt
Earrings - family gift

If you haven't previously read on my blog that I have a great family, here is more to that. My aunt was visiting me here recently and she is very good when it comes to a lot of things and one of them  happens to be sewing. She came up with an idea to make this denim purse. After two pairs of husband's old jean shorts are cut and reworked, I have a cute little denim bucket bag. I personally think it goes perfect with my casual outfit.
