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***

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial 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. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

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…

The Girl in the Wal-Mart Shirt

When I talked about weight loss I mentioned how I was never outright made fun of for my weight. I'm always shocked when I hear people talk about their HS experience because man, kids can be SO mean. But that's not to say I was never made fun of in HS - I totally was. When my family moved to the Memphis area it was the summer before my freshman year and I was so excited because everyone is starting fresh in high school,. or so I thought. I had no idea that my high school already had formalized cliques set up and I never had a chance of being invited in. Even though I was chubby but still at a healthy weight I didn't really work out much and had never been one to exercise for fun so I wasn't "fit" and all freshman had to take gym - I dreaded gym because it highlighted how much I didn't fit in. Not only could I not run as fast or do as many sit up at the other girls but I had developed earlier than most of them too - I was 14 and wearing a 36C bra and that…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

Date Box July 2017

It's day four of my trip and tonight will be my last night of sleeping (or trying to sleep) in a big ,empty hotel bed so I guess you could say I'm missing my husband a little bit. Last weekend we had a really fun date night with our monthly Date Box. Date Box is a subscription service that sends the tools for a monthly date night in to your home for $39.95 a month. We have received dates for things such as painting, a spa night and escape room; This month's date provided us a fun night of cocktails and conversation. Each box comes with an activity, a snack , conversation starters and a spotify playlist. Most of the dates are things that could be repeated and this date is definitely something we'll do again.
This month's box came with recipes for several cocktails and mocktails, a cocktail shaker, jigger and stirrer to make out cocktails, coasters with conversation starters and the card game Rook. Although it wasn't one of the recipes included we made some f…

Why Dating Sucks

For the past six weeks I've been driving myself crazy wondering wondering what I was so afriad of. The biggest problem I've had at the end of the day with the DB breakup is that it should have come from me. I was so DUMB to let him live in my house months after any feelings of romance had left. But alas, I was one of those idoit girls who believes that having a not great boyfriend was better than none at all and I've been trying to figure out where I could have possibly gotten such a terrible idea. And then today I was reminded : because dating SUCKS!


A good quote someone gave me was "Instead of looking for Mr. Right, do  the things you love and he will be right there waiting for you". Well, I like going to wine club, junior league functions, and now drag shows ( BEST NIGHT EVER, will blog about it soon, promise) and while there are men at the thrid, I'm just not their type And thus I am admiting to you all that I have an online dating profile. Yes, welcome …
