Grey & Gold Tones

 Hello loves!
Happy Monday!
I hope you had a great weekend. While I feel like I spent most of mine cooking, I was able to sneak away with hubby for a few hours to the movies. We went to a dine-in movie theater. That was first for me. The experience was great. The seats were super comfy and the food was actually really good. We would have enjoyed it more if we had arrived early to settle in before the movie started but we arrived just as the movie was starting and the lights were out. One thing I would say is that it was really dark in there. I am guessing the light from the movie screen was supposed to help but it really doesn't when all the scenes are dark as well. So, trying to read the menu and place an order in the dark was not ideal. 
Nevertheless, we had a great time and will probably do a dine-in movie again, only arriving before the movie starts next time. Oh, we saw Venom. It was good. Not what I expected but still good.

 Today's post features this lovely grey midi skirt with gold buttons. I love the A-line classic look of the skirt, the midi length and the gold buttons just adds the perfect finishing touch. Paired it with a light blue ruffle stripe blouse and grey heels.

Styling Options:

With the focus on the skirt, I can see pairing the skirt with a sweater as the weather gets cooler, and a pair of heels. 

Or, to hype up the look even more and stay warmer, pair with some knee high boots and add a midi length coat to it.

Lastly, I can envision this skirt looking great with a layered look on top; a button down shirt layered with a knit sweater on top and tucked in. 

I hope you've enjoyed today's post.
Talk to you soon.

Hello loves!
Happy new month! Can't believe we are in the last quarter of the year. I know it is an old saying by now, but this year really did go by fast. 
I am excited for this last quarter as we have lots to celebrate starting with Eliana's birthday, then mine, then thanksgiving, then Emmanuel's birthday, then Christmas.  I mean, it is a jam-packed season of celebration and thanksgiving.  

Speaking of birthdays, this year is major for both Eliana and I. She turns the big 5 and I turn the big 30! I can't believe I am finally turning 30 and at the same time, mother to a 5 years old little girl.
I said finally, because it feels like it'sbeen a long time coming. I even have my 30 by 30 list but refuse to share it (don't want to be held accountable by everyone *cover face*). I am actually not doing too bad as I have accomplished a few things on the list and some have plans in progress. So, while I may not achieve everything by 30, I am making progress.

I will share six things on my list. 
Three I have accomplished and three are yet to be accomplished.  One item of these is not actually on my list.  Take your pick and guess which falls where.

Learn how to sew
Start my own business
Take a ballroom dance class
Start my graduate program
Learn how to swim
Have 3 kids
Go hiking

On another note, I am loving jumpsuits / rompers lately. You can easily tell why this is a good pick for me. It's a good girl in the front and back, and a naughty girl situation on the side. The red floral makes it perfect for all seasons. Played off the red and paired it with red strappy sandals and earrings and to break up the red, added  leopard print clutch.

Keeping with my new feature below are two other ways I would style this jumpsuit

Styling Options:

For fall, pair with a t-shirt or button down shirt layered underneath and a pair of booties or pumps. You have to show the slit and legs on the side as that is the main unique factor so, bare legs all the way.

For another warmer weather option, I would style it more causally with a pair of flats and add a tote bag.

I hope you've enjoy today's post.
Thanks for stopping by.
Talk to you soon!
