SAHM Style: True Grit Inspired

This outfit is inspired by a movie "True Grit". My inspiration is from the newer version of Mattie Ross played by Hailee Steinfeld. Here is my own take.

I have learned that the Color of the year 2014 is called the "Radiant Orchid", which is according to Pantone, Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. Why not wear a dress in that color or something similar. 

This one looks fresh and young. Beautiful!

Wearing a dress in nude or white color dress can be unflattering or it may look more bridal, but when done right it can be stunning. If you are confident in your body and your skin tone, by all means wear it. This One-Shoulder Floor Length Chiffon Prom dress is all about simplicity at its best. With the right hair, make-up, shoes and accessories, you will look like a Grecian Goddess.

And, if you are all about simplicity and loves to wear black. Go with a little bit of details like some sequins, perhaps. Just like this Sheath One-Shoulder Sweep Train Chiffon dress with Ruffle Beading.

My Simple Christmas Request

After what my family had been through last month with the Yolanda storm, I didn't want anything else for me for Christmas except to help them. But when my husband asked me what I want for Christmas, I had a simple request. A new pair of Minnetonka Suede Skimmer Mocs. I didn't really think my husband would order me a pair until on our way back to Kansas when he told me my Christmas present might arrive after Christmas. Well, it arrived in the mail right before Christmas and I was very excited to have them. I don't know why it has taken me this long to get a pair because they are super comfortable. I have never had a blister at all, it is slowly molding my feet, and I am hoping for another pair of Minnetonka boots in the future. It is a good thing though I listened to the reviews online and told my husband to order a size down (I usually order a size 6, but ordered a size 5.5 on this one). I wear it around the house or when running errands and they keep my little feet comfortable. Thank you my dear husband for the gift.
