There is no question my favorite color is pink.  This dress is everything!  Ruffles and pockets makes me one happy camper.  I am and always have been a dress fanatic.  I prefer to wear dresses over anything else.  I’ve been like this since I was a little girl and clearly things haven’t changed.  As you can tell, this outfit makes me happy.

One of my all time favorite things to do is go flower shopping.  What is it about flowers that makes us so happy?  There’s nothing better than going to the flower market and picking up fresh flowers for your home.  It instantly brightens up your space and livens up the room.  Life is short, buy flowers.

My favorite part about this dress is the ruffle back.  I was afraid it was going to be too low cut and I’d have to wear a special bra but it’s not.  You can wear a regular bra!  Major points for this.  Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing 00.  It fits me perfectly with NO alterations.  The length hits me right above the knees – great for petite gals.  The pièce de résistance of this gorgeous dress: pockets!

Bows and scallops?  Yes please!  How adorable are these maxine heels?  After wearing these for a full day, I’m wondering why it’s taken me this long to try out kitten heels.  It’s like having the best of both worlds – the comfort of flats but with a little height (great for petite gals).  I wore these for an entire day and my feet didn’t hurt at all!  This is a great option for ladies who work in an office environment that want something comfortable but still professional.  Love and would highly recommend.  Plus they’re made in Italy! 🙂

I know I’ve said this a million times but sunglasses are the hardest things for me to shop for.  I don’t have a tall nose bridge and nothing seems to fit my face.  I’m completely obsessed with these pink emmylou sunglasses and they don’t slip down my nose.  I love the retro vibe with a modern twist – so cute!  This is my fourth pair of kate spade new york sunglasses so needless to say, I’m a fan.

If you don’t have a white handbag for summer, you need this one.  It’s structured, the perfect size and doubles as a crossbody.  Comes in seven colors and I love that it has feet to protect the bottom.  Love love love!  Also, this silk scarf is GORGEOUS.  It’s such a fun way to dress up your purse and add a little something to complete your outfit.
