Happy Monday!  Hope y’all had a beautiful weekend.  We were in Vegas for Mr. S’s work conference.  The 2 hour time difference was KILLER for Little M (and as a result us… hello 4:30am wake up calls).  We got to have TWO date nights because my mother came with us.  That’s probably equivalent to how many date nights we’ve have in a year!!  Thanks Mom!

Anyhow, I’ve been enjoying the finally GORGEOUS weather in Texas.  Hooray for Spring!  It’s been the perfect weather to throw on a dress and go.  Speaking of fun in the sun, the dress and button necklace is from the CAbi ‘In the Sun’ collection.  The dress is super comfy, but I suggest wearing it belted.  It has a relaxed fit in the middle and tends to hug the hip. {You can see what I mean in the last pic.}  You know how I am about convertible pieces, right?!  The necklace can be worn THREE ways – a long necklace, short necklace {as shown}, and bracelet.

The Style Rx:  A nautical striped dress pairs perfectly with a white denim jacket and bright accessories!  Go with flat thong sandals for a casual look or dress it up with neon heels.

Just a little side note.  I love it when companies ‘give back’ so I’m going to start highlighting those brands.


CAbi has the Heart of CAbi Foundation whose mission is to encourage and empower women in need.  Recently, they launched W.E. are CAbi as part of the foundation.  For every new CAbi consultant who starts a business, the foundation will fund a small business loan for a woman entrepreneur in a developing country.  Isn’t that wonderful! BTW, the W.E. stands for women entrepreneurs.

    That is such a cute striped dress, and it looks wonderful belted with the little bit of print mixing with the leopard!

    It’s a shame baby M wasn’t so adaptable with the time difference, but it’s wonderful you got to enjoy some time with hubby even if you did have very early wake up calls, haha!
