Summer Dress Season is HERE

I don't know about you but my Summer is FULL of family visits, wedding, graduations, vacations, work events and so much more! And I am sure you all know me in that each of those events require a new outfit! (LOL) Hey, I am who I am....
 I found 3 new dresses that are perfect and easy for some fun Summer nights! It's funny I couldn't wait to share these outfits with you guys but it has been COLD here in Colorado! But for you all, I braved the cold and took some photos around the house!
 This first dress is my FAV! It is so comfy and I love blue and I love throwing on a jean jacket on top of everything! Perfect for COLD Colorado Spring or Summer nights!
 In fact I think I am going to wear this dress this weekend at a wedding in Oklahoma, it's going to be cold and rainy and this is still a nice outfit but will be warmer for me! I paired this look with nude peep toe booties and blue accented jewelry!
Next up is this Army green number and I LOVE army green! What I love about this dress is the comfortable jersey material and how this dress will take you into fall. I paired this with a Free People bralette in black so I added black accents for this look.
 This dress would be perfect for date night, girls night out or even a nice wedding!
 You know what I learned when uploading these pics? I am SO pale! I am ready for my Summer tan which would be the BEST accessory for these dresses!
 I wore this look with strappy sandals but I also think that you could pair this with dressy flat sandals or peep toe booties in nude! I kept the jewelry simple because the wrapping of this dress is what makes it and I didn't want to take away from that!
Last up friends is this black lace up maxi! No, this dress isn't for dinner on Friday night but this will be great to wear to dinner in Mexico.... just throw it on a go!
 I do LOVE the jean jacket on top though, you see a hint of the plunging neckline but the jacket makes it more date night friendly for me! And YA, leopard is PERFECT for this look with that hint of turquoise earrings.
 Can you all see the storm coming in? We got snow last night and this weekend we are suppose to get 8-10 inches!! I may or may not have been cold! LOL
 The back is my fav, I was imagining myself walking on the beach, sun in my face..........
 So where did I find these hot numbers? TOBI! This awesome site out of LA! They have so much on the site..... dresses, rompers, tops, skirts... you name it!!!! If you have a specific event coming up check out this site for sure! #tobi #tobidresses #summer

Is it PATIO time yet?

Living in Colorado until mid-May you have to only dream of your patio days while the snow keeps making an appearance. Like this weekend and next we have small snow in the forecast! I was going back thru pictures from last year getting excited about bringing the cushions back out and relaxing while the dogs run around the yard!

A BIG trend this year is bringing the indoors out..... like this love seat conversation piece. It truly feels like an extension on the home when you get a set like this!
 Upstairs on our upper deck we also have a smaller conversation set that goes along side our patio table where we love having dinner alfresco. From the top deck we like to watch the deer across on the open space graze and bed down.... it never gets old, promise you!
This was our FIRST meal last season and I am already planning ours out this year. There is something about grilling dinner while having a margarita that just SCREAMS Summer is here... relax!
In Colorado the rule is don't plant anything until AFTER Mothers Day! Then I swear to you the next weekend the garden stores are jam packed!
 I am excited to use my utility cart again this year for my herb garden! I used small pot to plant all my herbs... it turned out so well and what is great is that if the weather is too bad or cold I can literally just roll this inside! 
Are you inspired yet?? I have more fun for you, I have recreated my outdoor space for you! All you need do is click on the pictures under the board and you will be directed wear to purchase! AND I made it even easier for you.... Everything you see here is from Wayfair! Wayfair literally has anything you could ever want and picking out just one space today was hard.... because I LOVED everything! You can check out ALL outdoor trends on Wayfair by clicking HERE


Patio by Wayfair




Once your patio is done, your flowers are planted and the weather warms up take a moment for yourself....I'll take mine with a glass of wine and a magazine! That's a perfect Spring or Summer afternoon!
Happy Spring Friends!! If you are ever in Colorado hit me up and we can have a conversation on my conversation piece by the fire! Oh la la....

It's EXXpensive to be ME

Some of you might know Erika Jayne from her numerous #1 Dance Hits, maybe her time currently on DWTS where she is killing it with Gleb....
 Most of you know her from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where she is THE fan favorite! But no matter how you know her, people love her! As do I! When I heard she was performing in Denver I was so excited!
Oh you know it's just me and my new pal Erika! LOL! And might I add I thought I had on a ton of make-up since it was a night out but next to her and her hair I am so plain Jane! LOL! And yes, she is really so stunning in person and that tall because of her SKY high THIGH high boots!
 Ya we were pretty close because it was a rather small venue, a night club in Denver! It was super neat!
SO...... Here is the low down.... She didn't take the stage until 12:30AM!!! And she did 5 songs. her dancers were awesome.... Gleb her DWTS partner came out and danced (which was AMAZING) and ABC was there filming. She doesn't sign live but she performs! And she is super super small. She is stunning. During the meet and greet we were each literally ONLY given 5 seconds to say HI (I told her she was stunning) and snap a pic! After waiting around for 2 1/2 hours for her it was a quick whirlwind! It was fun and Gleb is soooo good looking! LOL! I mean she knows what her crowd likes and gives it! Just look at this fierce picture....
 I mean what is not to love about a fully rhinestoned body suit and thigh high boots?!?! For real.
 Overall it was a lot of fun but getting literally only 3 hours of sleep was BRUTAL!!!!!! But for Mrs. Exxpensive I would do it all again!
