Bold, Bright & Beautiful

Happy Monday loverlies.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day- whether that meant:

  • You were celebrated AS the Mom
  • You spent time with your Mom
  • You spent the day with your Mom in spirit due to loss or distance

I hope some part of Sunday was meaningful. I had a really, really fun day but I left my camera at my Sister's apartment.. so no pics so I will delay that post.

A couple weekends ago, I attended a benefit that my Dad is heavily involved in. I love dressing up but dressing up to go spend money towards a wonderful cause and enjoy spirits and food is pretty much the best reason to wear a fun dress.

And because I felt like the Sun merited a little brightness on my end, I wore a bold, bright & beautiful dress that I'm quite fond of:

The night may have ended but my love for vibrant colors had not. Thus, my dress had me searching for a few others out right now that were equally bold and beautiful for the upcoming Summer season:

$27.80 Forever 21

Victoria's Secret $39.00

Victoria's Secret $39.00

Victoria's Secret $49.00

Victoria's Secret $39.00

I hope everyone has a wonderful start to their week!
