Peplum-Lace-Hem Tank

I mentioned previously I need to bring it down a notch as far as shopping goes but you guys...this Peplum-Lace-Hem Tank was mark down to $11! #icanthelpit. Come on, how can I say no? By the way, it runs a little big (wearing a small) so I would size down. What I love about this top is that I can dressed it up or down, which is a plus in my book! I went with distressed denim shorts because it was hot over the weekend and of course, I wanted to change it up. However, instead of a casual look, I dressed it up by adding a pair of statement earrings, a fitted jacket, and a pair of heels...I think I accomplished just that.

One pair of shoes I've had my eyes on for spring and summer are espadrilles, and I'm sure glad I found these affordable pair at Old Navy. I love how I can pair them with a dress, shorts, or even this white lace romper; but this time around, I paired it with my go-to outerwear...the denim jacket. I love the simplicity of these shoes and how they can easily be styled. I will definitely be putting them to use this summer in the Caribbean's.

Simple is boring

I previously mentioned on my post my obsession over bell sleeve tops and of course, it's only right I dedicate today's post to the lovely trend.  I wore this top to Easter Sunday service and paired it with a black pencil skirt for a sophisticated look. Nothing feels more grown-up than a beautiful pair of heels, am I right? Believe it or not, this look would totally work for the office (depending on the dress code, of course). And because simple is boring, why not add a pair of statement earrings for that extra glam? Yes, please!

Blue for Spring

We are planning our summer vacation in June so my shopping obsession must come to a slight halt (girl, is on a budget), ha! With that being said, thrift shopping it is! I visited Plato's Closet over the weekend to turn in some items I had in my closet and found this cute top and jacket in exchange. I instantly thought, "this would be perfect for a girl's night out!" To make the look a little more interesting, I added a long necklace for and extra oomph. Okay, now momma is ready to hit the town! 

You guys, Emily is almost walking on her own! She will be 13 months today and I can't believe it! If you follow me on Snapchat: @daintyjea, I try my best to capture these unforgettable moments but she's not having it. I'm taking the doctor's advice and giving her space...she will eventually do it on her own but I definitely don't want to miss it!

Emily turns one

Finally, I get to share with y'all my daughters first birthday party! Initially, we were going for a dream catcher/boho theme birthday party but since her birthday fell on the 17th of March, which was the day Beauty and the Beast movie was released, we decided to go with this theme! Not going to lie, it was a little difficult finding Beauty and the Beast theme birthday supplies at the last minute; however, thank God for Etsy! I fell in love with the number "ONE" Beauty and the Beast letters which helped the rest of the decoration come together smoothly. This simple and cute banner was easy to choose from... And let's talk about the center pieces?! Tea cup flower arrangements with "Beauty and the Beast" lyrics written on books as décor?!! #priceless. Thank God for Pinterest. Emily enjoyed every second of it and so did we. I'm glad we have these photos for memories.

How to style a denim skirt

Denim skirts. After wearing them for so many years (I was raised Pentecostal so no pants allowed), I told myself I would never wear them again, but now that many years have gone by...hey, why not?! Lets face it, it's a trend that's never going away. I decided to pair it with a pretty blush pink blouse and  lace-up heels sandals for a fun spring look.

It's been a crazy couple of months hence the lack of posts. I had family over from Florida and Puerto Rico for my daughter Emily's 1st birthday. To top it off, I'm enrolled in a gym (I've lost 7 pounds, yay!!) so working full-time, family, and gym = #busybee. Such is life, right? Now that all is back to norm, I really want to get back to blogging!
