One of my 500,000 (mild exaggeration) god children graduated from Kindergarten. For some reason, this morning, Jason and I were on serious Jamaican people time. Fortunately, we got there while he was still sitting with his classmates so I could get a photo of him. He was so proud of himself, sitting up there with his piercing blue eyes that was intensified by his blue shirt, holding his diploma. It wouldn’t have been E if he wasn’t wearing a tie with skulls and cross bones.

Seeing E at his graduation made me reminisce a bit. I remembered the age of simple delights like cookies, playing on the playground, loving all of your teachers (I mean, what kindergartener didn’t?), and falling asleep in the car and having your mom carry you in the house. Ah, those were simpler times.

The first time I saw this top, it was actually from a distance.  I thought it was a floral print, but when I got up close, I realized it was more like watercolor. I also really love the pleating on the bottom portion of the top because it adds a bit more structure to it.

If you follow me on Instagram, then these shoes look familiar. This dress is what I wore with them. I LOVE peplum so this navy with white polka dot dress was everything I need and more.

What prints/patterns do you like to mix?

I absolutely love going to TJ Maxx. I always find a variety of styles that I can mix and match to suite my taste. Here are a few things I’ve picked up on a recent shopping trip.


I haven’t worn skirts often because I’ve had a lot of trouble with fit. But this trip, I had quite a bit of skirt success. I tried on another adorable skirt besides the one I purchased. I left it because it was a little too big (insert a triumphant “woooooooo”).


I loved the mustard skirt but it was a little too big. I didn’t purchase the striped skirt because I only liked it, I didn’t love it. The same thing went for the white peplum top (which I’m regretting now). The blue lace dress was a little too much for me. I’m no prude, but I’m not a freakum dress kinda gal.

Here’s a little lookey loo at everything I picked up individually.
