Outfit // Relaxed Sunday In

 These last few weekends I have been busy in effort to have as much fun as I can possibly have before another mundane work week begins. On the contrary, sometimes it is really nice to have weekends when you are completely lazy. I can proudly admit that this is the type of weekend I am having right now. I have spent most of my time reading, surfing the internet and overindulging on social media sites such as Youtube and Instagram. So I can successfully say that the goal for this weekend has been achieved, relaxation! (and yes I lounge around my house wearing dresses... if you think I'm lying you can ask my friends and family.) Im strange I know....

Dress: Tj Maxx 
Sweater: Target

Have a great rest of the weekend, lovelies!

Outfit // Favorite Childhood Story

Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans 

"In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines

lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.

In two straight lines they broke their bread
and brushed their teeth
and went to bed.

They smiled at the good
and frowned at the bad
and sometimes
they were very sad.

They left the house
at half past nine
in two straight lines
in rain

or shine-
the smallest one
was Madeline.
She was not afraid
of mice-
she loved winter,snow, and ice."

When I was a little girl one of my favorite childhood stories was Madeline. I feel like this outfit reminds me of Madeline's school uniform. I could relate to Madeline as a child because I too was the smallest of my peers. I always had to sit in the front row for class portraits. When it was time to play "house," an imaginary game that required my friends and I to mimic various roles in the family system. I was always stuck with being the baby or the family dog because I was the smallest. I liked that despite the fact that Madeline was the shortest, it didn't stop her from going on great adventures and accomplishing big heroic tasks.

Pre-Spring Layering // Sister Style

I really like the art of layering, and my sister masters it. Last week was my sister's birthday so what better way to celebrate then taking outfit shots for a future blog post. I was thrilled when my sister allowed me to use her as a model for today's post. I love how she paired this floral printed playsuit with the plaid skirt effortlessly. I also really like how she double layered this with two sweaters with completely different colors and textures. I give my sister an A+ for this outfit combination! Well done!

Floral Jumpsuit: Forever 21 
Plaid Skirt: Forever 21 
Velvet Sweater: Urban Outfitters
Gold Sweater: Forever 21 
Shoes: Ebay 

Have a great Monday, lovelies!
