Casual Dress






There is something so lovely about a simple, everyday dress, don’t you agree? I am currently crushing on this super casual day dress from Boohoo which is under $30 y’all!

I needed something easy since 99% of time I am always running around, for instance: Getting Kingston, my son ready for school, heading to work, pick Kingston up from school, go grocery shopping…oh, and I blog and currently pursue jewelry making. So, you get the picture. I live a very busy life. This being said, every now and then I just crave something easy – hence I purchased this casual dress.

What do you think?! Do tell, by commenting below & don’t forget to ask me some questions! If you follow me on Instagram, you may or may not know that I have decided to spill some beans about blogging and myself. Either shoot me an email, comment below or comment on this picture HERE, and ask me any question(s) you may have! I will answer all questions on Friday’s blog post!

As always, thanks much for stopping by & have a lovely Wednesday!

    One of the things I wanted this summer – shirt dress! Unfortunately, I haven’t found the right one yet. I’m loving yours! You look gorgeous :)))

  12. August 5, 2015 / 9:54 AM

    You are totally right, dear V., a hectic and busy life and your son going to school now, you need to keep all in order! So practical items are a must! You are totally successful in finding a perfect practical dress, and beautiful on the top of all! The cuff is fantastic, I love turquoise and the shoes and bag go so well with all, with the yellow touch of color to spice up the outfit! Always gorgeous, dear V.! I am not exaggerating, you know you are! Hugs and kisses!

    Vanessa Goodnight, thank you very much for your comment, I liked it. Your dress is beautiful, even if it is very stylish casual. These beautiful. A hug.

  22. August 5, 2015 / 3:39 PM

    This such a great casual chic dress and those mules take it to the next level! Gorgeous look V!
    Honestly I don’t know how you do it! Balancing work, parenting, and your blog. Impressive. I guess my question would be how do you find time to blog so consistently…Just getting the pictures out of the way can be time consuming. Do you block out a certain amount of time daily for blogging and social media? I guess I’m wondering whats your secret ๐Ÿ™‚
    Looking forward to Friday’s blog!!

    I love the dress, mules, and yellow clutch. This is such a great causal chic look. I honestly don’t know how you juggle being a mom, wife, blogger, jewelry maker, and a day job. Kuddos to you. I know that you also work out. When do you fit that in?
