Red Prabal Gurung for Target Dress and a Sign

"Do NOT do this!"
Princess Sparkles wrote on a sign for Bucket.
Bucket recently hurt his thumb after playing with canned food.
Camouflage asked Sparkles to make sure her brother didn't go into the pantry.
She obliged by creating her sign and taping it to the door.
Of course Bucket completely disregarded it.

RED DRESS - Prabal Gurung for Target (thrifted)
BROWN AND BLACK BELT - Tory Burch (thrifted)
EARRINGS - Heavenly Treasures
BRACELETS - iSancturary
NUDE CAGE HEELS - Kelsi Dagger

LEATHER ORANGE BELT - Dimensions (thrifted)
NECKLACE - M Haskell via Ross
RED PURSE - B Makowsky
BRACELET - iSanctuary
WATCH - Michael Kors

Here are a few outfits from the week.  I recently bought this Prabal Gurung for Target dress at Goodwill for half off.  I decided I'd pair it with a Tory Burch belt my mom, Fair Isle, thrifted for me and some nude cage heels I found on clearance for $11.  I was trying to be unexpected by not wearing black accessories.  I also wore white skinnies and a black t-shirt.  Trying to make it interesting I paired it with a thrifted orange belt and necklace Fair Isle and Henley bought me for Mother's Day.

Bucket eats berries with his injured thumb :(

A belt is the ultimate "supporting" accessory.  It's never the "star" of an outfit, but without it the look would not be complete.  Not only does it make everything look fabulous, it's also functional.  So even if you think no one can see it, do NOT disregard the belt.

Your outfits are fabulous but it's the children that makes me smile.. in the last picture, what was going on? Poor boy was crying aww...! The drawing reminds me of my boys' when they were much younger, they made these posters that they pasted everywhere! They were of my usual caution to them like "NO running on the stairs" "Don't shout, someone's sleeping" "Eat your vegetable" No drawing on the walls" and each poster was with drawing like your kids'.. I miss those days when they were younger. Enjoy yours, you look like you have a great bunch there :)
