I tried to avoid it as much as possible but on Saturday I ended up giving in when I took an impromptu trip to the mall for some "me" time.  The store was (as expected) a huge mess and of course the lines were very long...  I've been trying my best not to buy clothes and instead shop my closet but I couldn't help myself when saw this lace stripe top.. Two of my favorite things incorporated into one pieces, stripes and lace!

One thing I love about summer is all of the bright colors.. This is one of my favorite skirts! 
It's a beautiful reddish orangey color.  Because it's so bright, I toned it down with neutral accessories.

Day and Night - Cargo Vest

I love how cool the cargo vest is!  
I don't know exactly what it is but I feel like it isntantly adds an extra measure of 'coolness'.

For an average daytime, i'm usually in flats and loose fitting attire with my hair tied in a bun... I got a little baby to care for so it's important for me to be comfortable. If I didn't have to bend over and hold my baby so often I would have added a belt to add shape to my body... But since i'm a mom on the go, no belt it is.

I normally don't get crazy dressed up to go out to dinner, but I do like to throw on a pair of heels, add a statement necklace and touch up on my hair.  It's amazing how small little details can make a difference.

OOTD: Summer Polka Dots

Confession... 
I have jiggly arm fat.

Because of my arm fat, I tend to hide the upper part of my arms with cardigans or jackets.  I love to wear summer dresses during the warm weather but I find that wearing a cardigan or jacket is too hot...Instead, I sometimes pair my dresses with a light weight breezy chambray shirt.  

How do you guys feel about layering a chambray shirt over a dress?
