Floral Fit & Flare Dress

dress: Amazon
heels: Jessica Simpson
bag: similar
sunglasses: Kate Spade (also here)
bracelet: J.Crew

Hello lovelies! Thank you so much for voting for me in the LUCKY magazine contest. I'm honestly overwhelmed! If you haven't voted yet, please do me an honor of casting your vote HERE (click the little heart-shaped like button).

I wore this dress to a wedding a few weeks ago. Although I'm no back to my pre-pregnancy weight yet, I love the pattern and colors. I feel like it's not the most slimming dress at this point but I couldn't wait to wear it when I received it. Even though it has a floral pattern, it's perfect for fall (I think). Thanks for stopping by!

White Floral

dress: SheIn c/o (also love this one)
sandals: BCBG (similar here & here on sale!)
clutch: Target
sunglasses: Choies c/o
necklace: old (similar here and here)

To say that I'm a little late to the party is an understatement. But what one to do when the pretty floral dress is hanging in the closet? Wear it! I couldn't fit into it when I had my belly and been waiting to loose some of that stomach to wear it. I still have about ten pounds to loose but there is nothing a good pair of spanx wouldn't fix. Also, it's almost fall and this is my last chance to sport some flowers. And to be honest, it's so pretty that I hope I get to wear it again in the spring (and maybe this one too)
Enjoy the rest of you week!

Perfect Spring

dress: Sheinside c/o, pumps: Jessica Simpson (similar), bag: Lauren by Ralph Lauren (also love this one), watch: Fossil (on sale!), sunglasses: Kate Spade

The perfect, spring dress weather has arrived in upstate New York and I couldn't be happier about it. Taking out my pretty little dresses (while I still can fit into them) is such an amazing feeling that I cannot wait to share more with you all! I'm loving this and this floral dress as well. The quality is a little on thin side (it is not lined) but it's perfect for summer weather and under $22!  

Mother's Day is coming up and honestly, I'm puzzled about what to get for our moms. I don't want to be corny but give something special and personal. Check out the Nordstrom Gift Guide - there is always something for everyone (and every budget). Plus they always offer FREE shipping and returns - the best thing ever (just in case she doesn't like it).

This last weekend hubby and I attended a beautiful wedding. The bride was gorgeous, the flowers were pretty and the bridesmaids were glowing. Every detail was tended to and we enjoyed ourselves. Although, I'm a huge fan of all things pretty and beautiful, especially at such memorable event, the best part was the food. I mean, we as a Slavic culture have the best food and certainly know how to eat. Ha. These photos were taken after the wedding which was probably a mistake because my gut was so much more visible. But I'm back to the super early wake up call and the two mile run again so that should fix it. And I probably should lay off the cookies. Yep, that should do it.
Hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by

Dress Review {eShakti}

I'm so very excited about this post! I've been working with eShakti for a few months to get this dress fit just right. According to most measurement charts, I have an irregular body shape, with a tiny waist and sometimes two sizes larger hips. Almost every dress I wear needs custom alterations to fit just right. 
When eShakti first approached me, I was super excited to work with them. First I ordered the dress based on their size chart but it was too big. So I send them my measurements and they customized another dress for me. Although, I think their sizing runs a tad large so if in doubt, size down. 
The customer service team was super patient and understanding and even after I mixed up the measurements twice, they didn't drop me. Honestly, I love the fact that I was able to add sleeves, because there is nothing more I love like a perfect pencil dress. The stripes give it a Kate Spade-ish feel and make me feel glamorous, while staying very comfortable. 
I have mentioned this online retailer before when I was doing post on modest clothes and so glad that I got a chance to wear one of their dresses.

Two to One

dress: Target (similar)
vest: Gap
bag: Dorothy Perkins (similar)
sandals: Gap (similar)
watch: Target (similar)
Every week I watch my sister's daughter. I sort of get practice for two kids already. Her and my son are six months apart and the bigger they get, the more similar their behavior is. Right now they are in 'everything is mine' stage. They don't want to share or be nice, and although they have undying love for each other, they pound on one another half the time. On those days, I don't get dressed until about 2pm and don't even try to follow any  kind of schedule. They are good kids and obey when I put my foot down but, at the same time,  there is two of them and only one of me. It gets hard sometimes but the moments they are cute and loving on each other they melt my heart. Those are the moments that prove life as a mama is worth it all.
Hope you are having a great day!

Simply Chic

A lot of times when I take pictures of my outfit for the blog, I think, is it enough? Is my outfit trendy enough? Do I have enough accessories? Is it Pinterest worthy? And quit frankly, it gets so exhausting at times. There is a pressure for a style and beauty blogger to be on trend. Otherwise, your pictures will not be pinned and the Insta account will loose followers.
I feel like, I have been trying to be someone else for a very long time. Looking at some of the more accomplished and expensive bloggers, I fee inadequate. But this is just me, having a nice day with my son at the zoo. You know, there are days when I have simple and non-trendy outfits on. That's OK nd it needs to blogged too.
It's really not about the clothes or how much we have, or what kind of bag we could scrape up on. Life is about so much bigger things. Stop worrying about fitting in and being something you are not. Just stay true to yourself and everything else will fall into place.
Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
