Little is Much

Dress: Merona for Target | Cardigan: Merona for Target | Shoes: Thrifted, Guess via Plato's Closet
Clutch: Ninewest | Belt: Thrifted (100% Leather), Plato's Closet

I'm loving these simple, thrifty threads. The belt is definitely "the party", and I think it ties the outfit together nicely. My favorite part is that everything (except for the clutch) was either from Target or the thrift store!

Little is much, I always say...

Classic Black & White

Clutch: The Limited | Sunglasses: DKNY via Macy's

Here's something you haven't seen on me before -- a bun! I haven't worn a bun like this in years, and I probably won't wear one again for a while. You see, I have more of a five-head than a forehead, hence my tendency to shy away from styles like this. But since I was having a bad hair day, I decided to give the bun a try and see if my forehead shrunk at all. Well... it didn't.

On a less awkward note, everything about this outfit from the black and white to the silhouette is classic. Can't go wrong with a structured tee and pencil skirt. Trends are fun but just for a season. Timeless is forever. Give me timeless any day. (Just not the bun.)

These are a few of my favorite things...

Brooches! They may be a little old-fashioned when it comes to accessories, but since my style is a bit mature at times, I love to use them when getting all dressed up. These are a few of my favorites from my collection :)

Check back tomorrow for a new outfit post!

The Abundance of Peace

Top: Banana Republic | Skirt: Old Navy | Shoes: Thrifted, Jessica Simpson via Plato's Closet | Bag: Ecko Red via Ross

I'm beside myself with my thoughts after the last few days. The church I attend hosted its annual summit, and if I gained nothing else I was surely given perspective on many things...

Today's mood = Peaceful

How was your weekend?

The Perfect Day

Dress: Merona for Target | Cardigan: Merona for Target | Shoes: Jessica Simpson via Ross | Bag: Zara

This is my last Jamaica-related post, folks... Until next time! For the most part, we had great weather during our trip. It wasn't rainy, but it was slightly overcast during the days which cooled the sun down a bit and made the air feel breezy and nice. On this day, though, the rain finally decided to fall. I'm usually tempted to dress dark and gloomy when it rains, but I wore this dress to match my happy mood instead. It was Father's Day, and I got to spend it with my dad for the first time since I was 6 months old. Regardless of the weather, it was what I would call a perfect day :)

JAMAICA, Land I Love

I apologize for posting snapshots from my trip a day later than promised. I was having technical difficulties... Forgive me?

These shots are just to summarize most of what we did on our most recent Jamaica visit. I provide a bit of context in the form of key words and phrases down below. If you're curious about any of the photos, feel free to leave a comment! :)
