Today my friend and I took our daughter's for a play date at a playground, afterwards we went to a Mexican restaurant and got blackberry margaritas and something for the kids to snack on. It was pretty warm out so I made sure to wear something nice and airy so I wouldn't be sweating all over. This dress is especially nice because it has the cold shoulder slit going on. When it's hot out I never feel like dealing with too many accessories, so I don't; just a pair of fish earrings and called it good. The building and decor of the restaurant was so cool looking that I wish I would of taken some pictures there besides the one of me and my friend and my daughter. I definitely will be going to El Toro again sometime because the blackberry margarita was delicious!
Statement Jewelry was the theme for this week's edition of Marvelous Monday. Today I took my daughter to swimming lessons, on the way home we made a stop at Walmart to get some groceries and she picked out some new clothes, then we did take out for dinner at a sushi restaurant. Tonight I'm bringing her to a local church for vacation Bible school, despite the fact that I'm an Atheist, but I think she will probably enjoy it. And somewhere in this time I have to find some time to squeeze in some studying. Be sure to check out the Marvelous Monday participants, their links will be provided at the bottom.

This is one of my favorite dresses that I own; the material is nice and I'm always such a sucker for animal print. Normally this is a dress that I pair with either black or blue, but I decided to go with silver for the most part this time around. And of course since this challenge was statement jewelry I went with one of my favorite pair of earrings (I have lots of earrings, but only 3 pairs do I consider my absolute faves) and my favorite necklace, which is the floral one. I added on the long chain necklace to up the drama of the outfit, though I rarely wear more than one necklace at a time, I actually rather like this combination.
Oh man I am so late on my Marvelous Monday post. This weeks theme was our favorite color. My favorite is purple, and all shades of it ranging from lilac, lavender, to plum. I chose to wear one of my favorite dresses, the only issue is that it is a little big and I need it taken in through the upper waist and bust; one of these days I will get around to it. I've worn this dress on the blog before which can be viewed here. Links for the other ladies' blogs are posted at the bottom.

It has been sweltering here the last couple days, so this outfit only stayed on for a couple of hours before I had to pry the jeans off my sweaty legs. The theme for this week's edition of Marvelous Monday is Floral. I'm not going to lie, I LOVE floral, and have an obscene amount of floral clothing. The shoes don't exactly match, but they are floral too, so I figured why not throw them into the mix. Don't forget to check out the other girls' takes on floral.
