I love pieces that can be worn in several different ways, and across seasons.  When I need something to wear for a fancy occasion, I try to choose something I know I can wear regularly by dressing it down a bit.   I have worn this skirt (which only cost me about $25, btw) to a formal affair with a silk cami and 4 inch heels and I have worn it with sandals and a tee or sweater numerous times.  In my opinion, this is a great way to save on occasion wear and then put your money towards the quality staples that you will reach for daily!

Certainly, I do not object to a lady treating herself to a gorgeous dress!  I think this is a wonderful idea as long as it is the perfect dress that we absolutely adore and will want to wear for years.  It is when we are not looking for a dress that we stumble upon such a masterpiece.  Sometimes we just have to pick it up when there is no fancy event on the horizon.  The worst scenario for me is trying to find a dress on a short timeline and then settling for something  I don’t love.

What is your philosophy about shopping for fancy pieces?   Actually, I’d love to hear your thoughts about any wardrobe strategies that you would like to share!

Funny little thing…Bradi hates being outside.  He is the most mild mannered, sweet baby boy…until I try to take him outdoors.  Suddenly we get claws and big-loud-mad meows!  My intention was to keep him with me for the entire shoot but he had a different plan and we made it about 30 whole seconds.

I’ve heard it said that when a child is born, parents must prepare to live with their hearts walking around outside of their bodies.  Well, I can assure you this applies to cats as well.
