Too Late Marimekko…

Banana Republic & Marimekko Polka Dot Dress #bananarepublic #shopping, banana republic, Banana Republic & Marimekko, Marimekko Well guess who overslept and woke up at a 7:00 a.m. to try to snag that gorgeous Marimekko skirt from Banana Republic, only to find out that the sale was open to card holders (which I’m one) 2 days early, and that it was the first item to go!!!!  This is what happens when you have too many things going on at the same time!! I need an assistant… Stat!

I was able to snag the strapless dress, which if I like it, will become my Saturday running errands dress.  For all of you who were able to grab the skirt… Congrats!!  I do have several skirts in the same style as the Marimekko skirt, so I’m not too crushed about it.  Apparently it’s also in stores, but I really don’t have time to run around looking for it.

Banana Republic & Marimekko

Well Darlings, I for one, cannot wait for the release of the limited edition capsule collection from Banana Republic and Marimekko.  Now this is a collaboration I can work with.  I will have my Banana card at the ready, especially for the skirt above.  I love a full midi skirt with side pockets, which is always a classic and timeless look.

Marimekko’s signature bold prints have graced clothes, fabrics, furniture, and tableware; and now Banana Republic has collaborated with the Finland based brand to come up with what in my opinion, will be a sell out collection {especially that skirt!}.

The two looks below are also on my radar, I’m loving  those cropped pants!!

Set your smart phone/tablet a few days ahead, to remind you, the collection debuts in select stores and online May 22.

Sparkle Friday…

Sparkle Friday Compressed

Hello Darlings, today is Sparkle Friday.  This has been the most challenging week to date, and these shoes, which I found in the back of my closet, just this morning, did the trick.  Don’t you just love shopping in your own closet?  I have no idea why these shoes got relegated to the back of the closet, but here they are to cheer me up on this beautiful (yet overcast) last day of the week.

Wishing you the most fabulous and chic weekend, and to all the Beautiful, Caring and Hardworking Fabulous Mothers, who shower unconditional love to their families every day, have a beautifully blessed U.S. Mother’s Day

And remember…

Yellow Tea Cup - Compressed

Hello my Darlings…

Once again, it’s been a busy time for me, with an extended business trip to New York, and due to all manner of interruptions, I have not had a chance to blog in the last couple of weeks.  Keep in mind, I’m always thinking of you, always writing and drafting articles, which will be released in the future, or may even become an eBook.  It was important to me, to wish you a very cheery and bright Sunday.

This gorgeous yellow cup was a great find at HomeGoods.  You can go crazy in that store (as well as Marshall’s and TJMaxx) if you’re not careful.  I collect teacups and teapots (it’s the Brit in me) and could not walk away from this beauty. It’s a gorgeous addition to my collection, and to me, it represents the yellow daffodils and tulips, which are in abundance right now, and the steaming hot summer yet to come.

If you’d like to see more of the gorgeous pillow, pop over to my Etsy Store

And remember…

 

Be Your Kind of Beautiful
