Back In Black

You guys know this all too well…but I just love wearing black. But who says black has to be boring? Adding some pleats, a cute belt, sparkle flats, and a puffy headband keeps this look fresh and fun.

Do you have a color you are drawn to and wear all the time? How do you keep it from looking boring?

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

You all know that the majority of my wardrobe is made up of dresses and the color black…but I really am trying to expand my horizons and add in different colors and pants to my collection. Do any of you guys get in your comfort zone and have a hard time branching out when it comes to new looks? For some reason I feel like the older I get the harder time I am having doing this. The struggle is real!!!

I felt it would be fun to dress extra cheerful today…and in my mind there is nothing more happy than rainbow prints (in front of bubblegum pink walls). So cute, so summery.

What colors make you the happiest to wear?

I love little details like this adorable bow. Feminine details like this always add a little something special to any look…no matter how simple or casual the outfit is.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really looking forward to a long and relaxing weekend. I’m planning on staying in Brooklyn this weekend and hanging out with some of my favorite people (and Rocko). Perfect weekends to me don’t mean going to the Hamptons or the beach or the club. Give me friends, wine, and brunch in my neighborhood and I am one happy girl.

When Life Takes an Unexpected Turn

Hello readers! Yes, I’m still here. It’s been quite a while since I did an outfit post, and I think some of you know why. The last few months have been some of the most difficult of my life.

Let’s flashback to this date last year…on October 6, 2017 I was hospitalized because my appendix had burst. It was a very serious (and very painful) situation. The doctor said it was too dangerous for them to operate and was told that we’d likely do that in 6-8 weeks when it would be safe. After waiting 6-8 weeks, the doctor says my appendix is gone. That it must have burst off and dissolved because is wasn’t showing up in countless CT scans.

Flash forward to early this summer when I was still in discomfort. Something that felt tight and like a heavy balloon in my body had me very worried. I saw a few doctors and they said that I still do very much indeed have my appendix, and they wanted me to get it removed. They also found an endometrioma (from my endometriosis) that they would remove since it was sitting next to my appendix.

I went in for surgery on August 31, 2018 for what was suppose to be a quick laparoscopic procedure. I was told that I’ll likely go home that same day unless there were any complications. So when I woke up in the recovery room and was told that there were some serious complications I knew I’d be spending some quality time at the hospital. Basically, a cyst from my burst appendix and my endometrioma merged into a huge blob and there was no safe way for them to remove them without taking out 4 inches of my large and 4 inches of my small intestines. What a mess.

So over the last month or so I have been recovering very slowly. I’m finally feeling almost back to my normal self. I’m almost back to eating my normal diet and my stitches are starting to dissolve. My tummy has almost deflated back to normal too. I hope to start working out and walking Rocko again in the next few weeks.

So posting outfit photos on my blog has really been the last thing on my mind. Also, a lot of my clothing isn’t fitting me right now or they are bothering my stitches. So wearing huge muumuus it is! The dress I have one here I actually ordered off of Amazon when I was recovering and still wear it quite a bit.

All I know is that things are starting to look up. I’m trying very hard to be positive and focus on what is important to me. A few months ago I probably wouldn’t have even posted these photos because my dress is slightly wrinkled, there is a slight white mark on it, and my tummy looks so bloated. But today I’m just happy to be alive and not in as much pain as I had been before. I’m happy and that is all that should matter to anyone!

Summer Wish List

With summer literally around the corner I have come to the realization that my closet is not prepared. That being said, I have been doing a lot of virtual window shopping...and my list of "wants" is getting quite long. Here are some of top favorites...
