Love the weekends!  I wore this for a casual dinner out with friends and kids.  I love the collared eyelet tee so much.  It is so soft and pretty.  My husband, on the other hand, is not a fan.  He saw what I was wearing and asked me if he could put his drink on my top, as in, it looks like a doily or a decorative drink coaster.  He has never liked anything eyelet or too lacy, it always reminds him of a doily.  And don't get me started on how much he hates actual, real life doilies.  My mom, who is firmly planted in the old school, always tries to use doilies on her platters for appetizers and desserts...and my husband will have NONE of it.  It's funny actually. 

I have been dying to wear my neon violet jeans for months now, but spring has just been so slow to arrive.  It's still chilly but I could wait no more.  I sized up to give myself some room but I felt like I was hitching them up all night, so I think I will run them through the dryer.  You can tell in these pictures they are too big... bummer!  Should have stuck with my regular size, 28 long.  Ah well.  At least I could breath all night.


  1. I just love this outfit on you --- especially those jeans! That color is amazing.

    1. Thanks so much! Good to hear from you!

  2. I love when husbands think they get to have opinions. ;)

    Seriously, you look adorable. That blouse is great and not at all doily-like.

  3. Love the outfit! In a house full of males, you deserve to have a little lace and eyelet!
