I spent this past week in Chicago with my family on our annual vacation.  This was my first time in the windy city and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  Shopping on the Magnificent Mile enables me to cross off one of my items on my bucket list.  As you can see, the week's color scheme of black and white had to have a hint of color and I found this cute little Michael Kors bag at my favorite TJ Maxx.  If you need to do a lot of walking, the Fit Flops are totally comfortable and although you can't see it very well, these have sequins on them and are totally cute.  I didn't go overboard with the shopping this time, but beware- next time I visit Chi-town, I am bringing an empty suitcase.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I bought this dress about a year ago at Dillards.  I think this style is universally flattering on everyone by cinching the waist and accentuating the bustline.  The full skirt makes you want to twirl around and dance like those in some of the old school musicals.

I don't normally do short dresses, but this is one of my favorites.  Of course with black you can add so much to it.  This works great in the summer as is or layer it up in the cooler months.

Pretty prints

I love this versatile piece because it can be worn as a dress or skirt.  I normally wear it as a dress, but decided to change it up today and wear it as a skirt.  The colors are so beautifully vibrant and it goes with so much.

Color of sunshine

Another beautiful and HOT day in Cleveland.  But I am not one who is going to complain, because in a few short months, it will be cold and snowy.  So with that, I will count my blessings for weather like today.

First Day of Summer

Thank goodness for strapless maxi dresses on a hot summer day when temperatures exceed 90 degrees, like it did today.  I must admit I love the summer weather, but today was even a bit too hot for me.

I have been thinking of starting a new blog for some time now.  I am following and loving so many of the fashion blogs that I figured I would throw myself into the blogging arena.  I adore the blogs that showcase real women wearing real fashions.  They don the types of items that we could find in our own closets and mix them in ways that make you say "Hey that looks terrific, I never thought of putting that with that".  My fashion love involves skirts, dresses and fabulous accessories.  My shoe love is so crazy that I have a high heel tattooed on my right wrist- seriously.  I am a registered nurse and while I love my job, I cannot wait to get home to change from an all white uniform into something pretty, fabulous and high (meaning my shoes).  I am a firm believer that you should always look your best when you leave the house- you may never know who you will run into at the market.  So with my blog, I want to showcase my love of skirts and dresses.  Here goes.....
