Recently I’ve been on the lookout for patterns – like I mentioned here.  Luckily for me, when I was checking out eShakti’s fall collection, I came across this beautiful floral print blouse.

I wore it a little dressy in these pictures – it was parent-teacher conferences – but I can easily see this blouse in more of a casual light, too.  (Blazer and jeans anyone?)

As for last week’s break, it was definitely great to step away for a little.  I’m convinced that there’s nothing that a few days in the Caribbean can’t fix!

One print dress + one bright blouse + one belt = one happy mama!  Confused? Take a glance at yesterday’s post…

Whenever I wear this flowy blouse, I get hippie vibes….succumbed to the flower power and decided to wear this necklace (seen here) as a head peace piece.

Peace, love, & happiness, friends!

Not to get all philosophical on you (it’s too early in the day for that), but have you ever really thought about what influences you to do certain things? Hmmm…

Take the hot summer weather for example.  This is why I have (temporarily) stopped using my blow dryer/straightener/curling iron and have opted for updos and head scarves.  (Also influenced by this lovely lady here.)

Also, I don’t usually wear white bottoms because they are guaranteed to get a spot or two on them.  These white shorts do have a spot on them (which I think happened about 25 minutes after putting them on)…but I guess having one kid or more means that nothing stays clean for long.  (Why didn’t I remember this when I bought that white maxi skirt from Savers?)
