Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great Sunday and enjoyed Mother's Day. We went to the movies. Mel and I watched The Great Gatsby. My son watched Iron Man 3. He said to me, "Mom, I'm not interested in that movie. I said it was cool for you." Hey, I tried! Anywho, Carey, Leonardo, and Toby were awesome! (I'm pretending like I know them personally.) The movie was over 2 hours long and well, you just have to see it for yourself. In spirit of Mother's Day I decided to do create a mixed print look and went with stripes and florals. The floral ankle pants are from J Crew and the striped cardigan is from Forever 21. Both pieces were under 5 bucks from Goodwill. Score! The ankle booties are a DIY project that you can check out here. The statement necklace is from Lydell NYC and I won it in a giveaway from Anngelik over at Vogue and Heels. (Make sure you check out her blog. She puts together great outfits and she also loves florals). The necklace has 3 mint stones surrounded with crystal diamonds. It's a pretty serious piece of jewelry and I don't own many, which is why I wear the same 4 that I own, but I like it and am happy that I won something since I never ever win anything. At first, I thought the outfit was cute, then I didn't like it, then I felt like who cares, and then I like it again, a little. It's only clothes and I'm having fun putting new and different pieces together since I've began blogging.
Did you do anything for Mother's Day? Will you be checking out The Great Gatsby anytime soon?
