The Matrix


Good Morning, Loves! Well, its  Monday & we’re back to work. I didn’t do too much over the weekend. I was supposed to have a yard sale on Saturday, but when I got up, I just couldn’t do it. I didn’t have the energy for it. Instead, I spent the entire day with my in-laws, daughter, and my Sweety. Nothing but laughs all day! Those people are hilarious. The weekends always fly by. Who made this rule of us working 5 days & only off for 2? Why couldnt it be the other way around? But I digress…

Are you loving this trench? Me too! It is super, super cute! In fact, its not a trench at all! It’s a dress!!!  The wonderful folks over at eShakti contacted me about picking out a piece to review. It took me forever to make a decision on something.  I knew I wanted a dress , but I just had to narrow it down to “which” type of dress I wanted! When I saw this shirtdress, I immediately thought that I wanted to wear it as a light trench coat over some shorts. I ordered it a couple of sizes smaller so that I could get the desired look!

You know I couldn’t do a review without having a giveaway for you guys, right??? I’m going to do a separate post for it today, so stay tuned. Speaking of giveaways, I need to announce the winner of the Easy Canvas Prints giveaway! The winner of that giveaway is Ashley over at A Sassy Woman (comment #28)! Congratulations, girlie! 

Dress: c/o eShakti, Shorts: Thrifted DIY Levi’s, Shirt: Walmart, Shoes: Charles by Charles David, Sunnies: Steve Madden, Ring: Forever 21 

I’ve added lots of new items to my Shop, so please stop by & take a look.

Talk to you soon,

    Prissy this dress turned duster is AMAZING!! The contrast between the long top and short bottom is very “ON”! I am in love with the little birdies and the color! RED is my fave! Kiah

    Girl you had me fooled. I thought this was a trench coat. You look great as usual. Sidenote: you always have your hair hooked up. Are you a hair stylist?

    This is a killer look. Your trench-dress is such a great idea. The print is fun and the way you styled it really made it stand out. Love how you can wear it as a jacket or dress. Now I’m on the hunt for one! Sounds like you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

    You’re killing me with the shoes….love! The jacket/dress is cute a piece, love it with the cut-offs. Those are the best times (sittin’ around and enjoying fam), and I agree about the weekend being waaay too short. Not sure if we’ll get the ole’ switch-a-roo (5 off 2 on;) I’m willing to take Fridays…I’d be happy with a 3 day-er!
