What I Wore: Socks with Sandals

(what i wore: sweater dress – bcbg from daisy exchange, socks – forever21, heels – nine west, jacket – tj maxx, necklace – dillards)
How do you feel about the socks with sandals trend? I’ve discussed it before and while I don’t think I’m ready to try anything wild (at least at work) I’m really into it as a means of transitional dressing. I’ve always had trouble transitioning to cold weather. Fall is definitely here and you know what that means…
WINTER IS COMING…(off subject Game of Thrones reference)

What I Wore: Sophisticate

(what i wore; jacket – forever21, blouse – bcbg, skirt – apostrophe, heels – qupid, watch – bcbg, bangle – kate spade, pinky ring & rhinestone earrings – vintage from mae’s, long ring – ebay, beads – dillards)
One of my favorites  is the piled on look. Sometimes more is just better.

My mother and my future mother-in-law are very attractive ladies and at this early juncture, seem to love each other. They’ve been discussing together what to wear to our nuptials. They don’t want to dress alike but want to compliment each other. So many of the “mother of the bride” dress categories I see on sites like Dillards, Nordstorms and Macy’s are sooo not something that would make a MOB feel beautiful. I know that my mothers started dieting long before I did, so they will and they should look their best. And as an Southern girl knows, it’s their time to shine too. While I know they will unlikely be purchasing from Net-A-Porter, that site does such a lovely job of recommending styles that an actual beautiful mother of the bride would want to where. Therefore they are a good place to start for inspiration. A question I have for you, dear readers, can a MOB wear black?
