Floral for Fall with Maree Pour Toi



At some point I realized that one great dress would be so much better than a closet full of "just ok" dresses so every season I look for one great dress that I feel fabulous in and has versatility. This fall this task was super easy with Maree Pour Toi . Maree Pour Toi offers beautiful high quality clothing is size 12 to 24 with a focus on the perfect fit.

As soon as I saw the inaugural collection I felt like the folks at Maree Pour Toi have been reading every single word I've written here and designed a line just for me. While I like to keep up with trends I tend to stick to classic styles that I can wear for years and the quality to last those years but I still need to keep my clothing purchases affordable. Because I work full time the majority of my clothing purchases need to be work appropriate but something I can wear beyond the office - Maree Pour Toi checks all of those boxes.



When it seems like an entire clothing line as been created to fit your needs it makes narrowing down the opinions a tricky task but this Scuba Foil Print Sheath Dress took my breath away. The floral design is beautiful but the foiling takes it to the next level. The neckline and length makes the dress office appropriate without being dowdy and the sheath style is the perfect classic cut; oh, and the scuba material means this dress will not wrinkle - this busy lady just doesn't have time to iron.


 My biggest requirement when adding a dress to my closet is it must be something I can wear multiple ways. I think anytime you see metallic in clothing the first instinct is it can only be worn at night and while between art exhibit openings, our anniversary, and holiday parties I will have plenty of opportunities to wear this dress at night I love styling it as a daytime dress.


Since I spend five days a week in my office making a dress business casual is usually my first priority. The cashmere cardigan I'm wearing here tones down the foiling and the booties add a neutral shoe less casual than a heel.


Of course, I recognize not everyone works in a causal environment so swap the cardigan for a blazer , booties for heels and tote for a polished bag and the dress becomes much dressier.


As much as I love a good heel on the weekends I tend to wear flats and have a more casual style - a denim jackets is far less stuffy than a blazer and glitter keds are a fun touch to bounce off the foil floral design. 


Occasionally I like to take my feminine pieces, which describes about 80% of my wardrobe, and make them a little edgy. This adjustable pleather jacket is also from Maree Pour Toi  - I originally got it to go with pants but I decided it was perfect to add a little edge to balance out the floral design.  


Of course, It would be foolish of me to ignore the obvious - this dress makes a great night out on the town dress. I selected simply jewelry to let the foil floral design be the star of the outfit and rounded out the look with gold heels and a neutral clutch.

I must admit that I was really nervous before the dress arrived - I tend to wear a size larger on bottom than my top so often I'll have dresses not fit right in one area but the fit on this is perfect - and for the record I am wearing zero shapewear, which isn't something I can do frequently with a sheath style dress. I'm so in love with the comfort and style so don't be surprised when you see me wear this dress time and time again this fall.

***Thank you to Maree Pour Toi for collaborating with me on this post and providing this beautiful dress so I can share it with y'all. This Scuba Foil Print Sheath Dress is $98 which is a price point lower than I typically spend when purchasing a quality dress with my own money***

Why I Blog

Years before I had an instagram account I had a Yelp account and I must admit that my very first review was a terrible 1 star review. While I think honest good and bad experiences are valuable on review sites I realized that's not the person I wanted to be. Instead of only putting negative thoughts into the world I challenged myself that for every negative review to take the time to write five positive reviews. Soon I found myself gushing over businesses I love and writing reviews of businesses I was trying for the first time. Within a few months I was invited to join the Elite squad - now I  have over 250 reviews and have reached gold elite status - this means I've been on the squad for five years. As much as I enjoy sharing reviews I enjoy reading them. I'm a planner and researcher by nature so before I go anywhere I want to know as much as possible. For example, when we go out to California we're going to have tea at the Hello Kitty Grand Café - I have read every …

Vi Peel

Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Essential Oil Make and Take

This year I've been doing a lot of homemade products and while it started off as being tired of running to the store for laundry detergent and face wash every few weeks its turned into more than that. As I researched and lookedup recipes   I started to discover that I could use homemade products for my health! I get migraines y'all and I will do ANYTHING to treat them. I've unsuccessful taken preventative medicine, destroyed my liver and stomach lining with OTC treatments for years, drained my bank account on prescription drugs, gone to the chiropractor, severally limited my alcohol and I still get them. My remaining options were: Botox, acupuncture, and moving to Colorado. But now I have hope. So where am I finding this hope? In essential oils. 
I've spent the past month really looking into it and decided I have nothing to lose. So as I was looking into different brands a FB friend posted that she was having an Essential Oils 101 class and Make and Take - perfect timin…

Holiday Mail

I love sending Christmas cards, I also love getting Christmas / holiday cards. Growing up Christmas cards were serious business. My Mom kept a book of who she sent them to and who sent one to us, three years and no card you were off the list. It's something my friends and I discuss today, seems like lots of moms ran their card list that way and now I find myself being a little less strict but keeping up with my list the same way. You would think that by 29 I'd have a pretty firm list of people I send Christmas cards to, but nope, it continues to change every year. Of course, the fact that I lost the disk with all the addresses from the prior year hurt a lot, that address list had every single person who attended my mom's memorial service or sent a card, it was a very handy but sad way to keep up with my non immediate family. A few years ago I use to think that I'd send a card to anyone that if I was to become engaged would make it onto my wedding guest list. Now that…

Lane Bryant x Girl With Curves Try On

If you wear a size 12+ unless you aren't on social media you've probably heard that Lane Bryant has launched a 20 piece collaboration with blogger Girl With Curves. With items selling out online on the launch day I knew I had to hurry up if I wanted to see things in store and try them on. 
The in-store display at the Southaven, MS location
The fitting room lighting was not great and while I'm not a fan of the mirror selfies sometimes you've got to work with what you have and I do want to be able to show you how these items fit. But, please don't judge my poor photo quality too much.
The item I wanted the most - like every other curvy girl apparently was the navy blue trench dress and this sold out online and was not in my local store. But, I was able to try on the other items I was most interested in.

The pleated lace black dress had a nice fit and I like how instead of a plain elastic waist it had a faux belt look. I think this dress would look waaaaay better …
