Happy Wednesday Y’all! Still trying to get caught up from being out of town. Little M is potty training. We made some forward progress, and then BACKWARDS progress. The turning point (in the wrong direction) happened because he went poo-poo in the potty for the first time at school when the FIRE ALARM went off!!! #why?! Poor guy is traumatized (and apparently the other kiddos because they keep talking about it) and refused to go potty. Luckily, SIL made a great recommendation, and we are using stickers for a reward system. Previously, he was just proud of himself! Anyhow, I’m sure that’s enough potty and poo-poo talk for you!
For those of you that just tuned in, From Grandma with Love is a weekly series (now more like every two to four weeks) that is one of my faves! I’m lucky to be the recipient of my Grandmother-in-law’s beautiful wardrobe. She owned so many unique pieces, and I’ve had the MOST FABULOUS time styling it on the blog. It’s a win-win for me because I ADORE vintage and a fun excuse to wear it!
Okay, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this silver cowl neck dress. It’s so SHINY but subtle. Obviously, I’m kin to the ostrich because I LOVE all SHINY things. When I first saw it, I was ready to wear it to NYFW, but it was a little warm for this long-sleeved maxi when I went earlier last year. I’m wearing it casually with a jeweled clutch and wedges in these pics, but it would be a cinch to glam it up with minimal heels and major earrings!
THE STYLE Rx: Go for the SILVER! Don’t pass up a silver (or gold) gem like this maxi! Balance the shimmer with neutral accessories or bling it up for some dramatic play! Don’t be afraid to shine!
Do you have another idea on how to wear this? I’d love to hear it! I’m looking for any excuses to wear this fun dress! :)
