Pearls, Kimonos & New Shoes

Hello my reader friends! I will keep it short, sweet and simple today. The boys and I are adjusting to our new experience with homeschool, in addition to all the craziness that pops up in between! (Sidenote, random confession: Homeschooling the twins is a little crazy, but parenting my teens feels crazier!!)

That said, let's move on to today's post. My birthday month (yes! I'm still talking about this other life change.) is quickly coming to a close, but the celebrating continues as I play with my new gifts.  Gifts like these new shoes and this new kimono! The kimono was from my friend and LulaRoe rep, Shannon. It's the perfect layering piece to get me ready for fall.  The trending floral print had yet to reside in my closet and the 3 quarter length sleeves will ward off the highly anticipated chill of September. Honestly, I couldn't wait to wear it and started out with a white top and hematite jewelry combination...

Within the same week, I pulled it out again to give new life to this dress from Altar'd State that I had yet to wear this season! The kimono looked nice left open, but I wanted to try something different by tying it up in the front. What do you think?

Pearls seemed to be the natural, complementing choice with this neutral lace dress...

As far as the shoes go, another sweet friend surprised me with a gift card to Rack Room shoes. I wasted no time in picking out a new pair of neutral wedges! They seemed comfortable in the store, but as we know the true test is when we wear them for a couple of hours. I've worn these twice for an entire day with no problems! Not bad for a shoe that is on sale for around $30! (I also found a pair of fabulous Adidas that I'm excited to share with you in a post to come!)

A couple extra pairs of shoes. ;)

I forgot to get a picture of the side view of these shoes, so here ya go...

That's all for today my reader friends. I close with this sweet pic of today's photographers and shoe pic photo bombers. :)
