I heart dresses

What do you think of these dresses below? These are my picks from Tidebuy. An online retailer of affordable and unique homecoming dresses. It is easily to get overwhelm from their website because there are tons of unique choices that they offer. However, if you have an idea, a style and budget of what you are actually looking for then it is as easy as a pie to select the one that you mostly like. I wish that the choices were these many when I had my school homecoming back the days. 
Happy Wednesday everyone....
Thank you from the heart.

Life's a beach

We are on the last leg of summer and I am already starting to miss all the days of it's glory. Last week, I shared my post on our trip to Savanna(here). This happy Monday morning, brings us to the beach ! We went to a short trip to Tybee Island few weeks ago. A good 4 hours drive from Atlanta. This is the thing about going to the beach is that even though there are a lot of visitors each year, it is never ever feels like crowded to me. There is always your own space. This summer we went to 2 water parks here in GA but both feels too crowded for me even if we went on a Monday. Not enough room compared to just being on the beach under a colorful umbrella, sandy feet, a great book to read, gluten free pizza for lunch and a day filled with boogie boarding and playing with waves. 
Yes, we found a restaurant by the beach that serves gluten free food and we are as excited to try it. Even though I lose my fav mirror sunnies but thank goodness I found a replacement on a nearby stores that are walking distance to the beach. I just bought it to keep me from squinting and protect my eyes from harsh sun but it turns out I ended up liking it a lot. Next time, I will try not to forget to take some pictures of those cute shops. 
As I end this post and call it a night, going to the beach year after year is always fun and exciting for us. Something of me and my husband can look back too when we are younger and my son is little.  All but great times....  It never gets old, doesn't it? 
For all we know, life is a beach !!!!
Happy Monday everyone and appreciate you being here.
Thank you from the heart.

Gingham and Mr. Lizard

This week has been super busy for me. But better late than never for a post which topic is gingham prints. With such a classic color and print, pairing is as easy as pie for me today.
The different ways that the gingham print was used on this top is what truly draws my attention. To add contrast to the manly style and a boxy silhoutte, I added some playful and girly touches to the overall look. This fluted skirt is one of my favorites and I think the color and it's shape highlights my gingham top more. And as you might have notice in my previous post, I like pairing cobalt blue with black/white. I think that these colors are just lovely when paired together.

On another note, notice all the greenery in my background? My son found a small lizard and put it an empty cup and brought it inside the car without me knowing. And if you are a parent of a little boy, you know how they like to play with those creatures, right? They also don't listen and will do the exact opposite when you tell them not to take em' out ! He was holding it but managed to escape and so quickly crawled under the passengers side. Can you imagine me now in a super panicked mode ! We have a lizard in the car..... I got out of the car quickly as I can and told my son that he better caught that lizard or we are not going  anywhere. I know that I am acting like a big baby, lol but I just don't anything crawling on me while I am driving and will jolt me from my focus. Even though it was the first time that we have lizard on loose in our vehicle, it was not the first time I travelled with bugs, frogs and lizard. I really don't mind. I just do not want them loose around. 
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
xoxo
