Medusa Head

Everybody has that day where your hair just refuses to lay right, that random pimple showed up uninvited, and a food baby (I couldn't resist those fries earlier) is trying to keep you from being great. Ah, yes, today was that day for me!! But because it was so beautiful outside, I put on a happy face anyway and got on with my life. And I must say, I'm so glad I did! I was blown away by the wonderful compliments I received from so many beautiful women throughout my entire day (most stopping to admire my "Versace" chain belt)! Sometimes we're really our own worst critics. All of those imperfections we see on ourselves can be totally nonexistent to all of the people we encounter.

It's A Jungle Out There

Who runs errands in this type of ensemble? I do! I love this dress and leopard print is hands down my favorite pattern. I'm obsessed with being able to throw on one piece and go! It's a time saver and so hassle free when I'm dressing while my little one is practicing pulling up by placing my calf in a death grip! I slip it on, adjust the straps, and I'm out the door. And a major plus is that the adjustable straps really come in handy when I have to nurse (I'm ALWAYS looking for a way to be a fashionable nursing mommy). 

Another reason I adore this dress is because it can be such an amazing transitional piece. I will definitely be wearing this paired with a dark lip, some boots, and a leather motorcycle jacket once the weather gets cooler.
