Friday Fashion

FRIDAY!!! Hoodie-Hoo! Let's talk fashion and Mother's Day gifts today, shall we?

1) I found this beyond cute dress online a few weeks ago, and had to try it for myself. I'm a sucker for a flirty, fit & flare dress (fitted on top, flared below the waist), and the $50 price tag can't be beat. I've got some blog conferences and parties coming up, and hoped this would be a good option. Since the shipping and returns are free, I ordered both white and black. But now I can't choose which to keep!

Here's an idea of how I'd style it....

White + Color


2) And now the same dress in black....

The pose on the right is awkward...have you ever tried to take a selfie of your back in the mirror?! There are so many ways to style a little black dress, but of course I love to throw in some color. What say you...white, black, neither? Or both?! Ha!

3) I created a moodboard around this floral number a few weeks ago (another $50 gem), so I added it to my shipment (free shipping and returns...holla!). I can't decide if I'm horrified or if I love it. It's a tad on the too-short side, but I'm crazy for the print. Never mind the shoes I'm wearing in the pics, and let's pretend I brushed my hair. Yay or hay-ell no?

And here it is all styled up....

4) Clearly I love a good dress, but sometimes an extra layer is needed...for warmth and style. I scooped up this adorable cotton twill bomber jacket for only $23! Available in black, white and faded green. Cardigans are great for layering over dresses and skirts, but I like the bit of edge this jacket adds to an otherwise prissy outfit.

5) Further proof this year is flying by....Mother's Day is weeks away! I'll pause while you panic and check your calendar. Yep, just around the corner. I usually get so busy scheming up what I want, that I almost forget my own sweet mom! She's so easy and fun to shop for, but at the same time, I love to find her special and unique items that you can't find just anywhere.

Uncommon Goods has become my go-to for creative and unique gifts...I can always find the best gift ideas for moms, dads and kids. They carry thousands of cool gifts, from fun jewelry and accessories to creative home decor and kitchen items. I love that they find and feature artists and handmade items, and a portion of every order goes to your charity of choice. My mom hates when I spend money on her, but I know she'll love knowing her gift also did some good in the world. Here's a few fun ideas for the special moms in your life...

  5. You look great in everything! If you have to choose I like the white over the black but both are great so I'd keep them both if I were you. And I need that clutch - or maybe I need to try to diy one - sooooo in love with it!

  6. That dress looks fabulous on you! My vote would be to keep the black one - it's more versatile since you can wear it year round, and you never can go wrong with one or too many LBD's in your closet. Have a great weekend!

  7. Adore the white. I have been loving white dresses lately. Try them on everywhere but haven't loved one yet. You scored.

  8. I think you already know the answer to your question, but my favorite is the white dress. I like the black as well. The floral is a little too short. You look great.

  9. I think they all look awesome! Yay you!!! This is the first time I'm writing you so I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog. It's so inspiring. I can't do the things you do because I'm a stroke survivor and just not able YET but still is awesome to be inspired by and I adore your bubbly personality! Thanks for being you! PS. Keep all three dresses!!! Jude. :-)

  11. Keep the white and black! They're so versatile. The floral is very pretty, but too short.

  12. I love Uncommon Goods! Such fun stuff! I'd keep both dresses but if you have to pick one, go for the white! I finally got my denim jacket and panama hat..thanks for all of the great ideas and fashion inspiration!

  13. Your stylings are spot on. Consider one an early Mother's Day present to yourself? The too cute possibly too short floral print; ever consider adding a hot pink (or favorite other color) lace band inside the dress along the hem. Looks deliberate and another flirty detail. And you look wonderful with flirty detaisl...

  14. Hot mama! Are you sure you have 2 kids? ;) I think you need to keep all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  15. These are all such cute dresses. Could you have the hem taken out of the floral one or add a band of color at the bottom?

  16. You look adorable in all 3 of those dresses Cassie! The white is very pretty on you and so fun with bright shoes and jewelry. Happy Easter to you and your family!

  17. The white and black are keepers! The floral is adorable, but too short. You have great style!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Keep the white one, it looks more expensive than it actually was. In the black it's nothing special, just another basic little black dress. And yes the floral print is cute but too short. I love online shopping with free returns, it's the best!

  19. Your styling is so good! I really need your help!

  20. I love the black & white dresses, but the floral is definitely too short.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, I hoped you kept all 3!!! I love all of them! And I don't think the floral is too short at all!!!! But if I had to pick...I think I'm digging the white the most!

  22. Keep the white one. The LBD make your skin looks even more pail, by the other hand, the white enhance your skin and it looks a golden-rose tone. Congrats, from México City.

  23. OBsessed with those dresses!! Need one of each right now!
