Hello girls! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! This week is going to be a tough one for me! You may have noticed my absence from your blogs, but I will be making rounds today, to check out the latest on all your amazing blogs, that I'm sorry I've been missing. My family has a lot going on. I don't want to go into too much detail because it involves people that may not want to be mentioned here, but anyway, stressful times, to say the least. So please just keep my family in your thoughts and prayers throughout the week. This Monday in particular is going to be a trying one, in which I'm not looking forward to. Scared, actually.......
Let's move unto something more uplifting, ok? Well, I guess I don't know about uplifting, necessarily, but I got a mini outfit post to share with you girls! So that's kind of exciting, right?
I wanted to share with you an outfit from the cruise we went on for Christmas. Looking back at my pictures I noticed a lot of pictures of the ship, and of my husband, but not so much of myself, which is what happens when you're behind the pink camera! We also got some professional pictures taken of my husband and I on the formal night, but I don't have a scanner, so I'm trying to figure out how I can show you those. In the mean while, in the next few days I will show you random outfits from the vacation!
I bought a couple new dresses from Forever 21 before the cruise. I was in need of a few cocktail type dresses. This one is called Chainlink Trim Contrast Dress.
Although they don't seem to carry the purple/magenta top colored one I got in mid December, online you can buy a pink top/ with the black bottom like shown below:
What's great about this dress, is that it's only $19.80!! I think that's an awfully good deal for a semi dressy dress! Don't you?
I paired it with this ring,
which you can't see as well with this outfit, but I've been wearing it like crazy lately! It's such a statement piece! I had been looking for a large ring for a long time, but I couldn't find one that fit me properly and that I really liked, but on this one, it's a strechy band so it will fit on any finger!
You can also find this ring at Forever 21. It's called Jeweled Flower Ring and is priced at $5.80! I love the antique feel to it, and how large it really is! Very eye catching!
I'm also wearing:
Headband: Claires (I myself, haven't shopped there in ages, but we had bought a few headbands for a young teenage girl and while wrapping this one up for Christmas, I peeled the price tag of the side and it ripped some of the coloring off, so not really suitable for a gift, but I can camouflage it with my hair well enough)
Black Heels: Simply Vera by Vera Wang
Dress & Ring: (As mentioned above) Forever 21
What have you girls been wearing lately?
Any new buys or trying out a new trend/piece you haven't sported before?
How's your week going so far?
Fill me in and have a lovely afternoon!
