Hello!! Happy new week. I saw this quote and loved it.  I look at it like being in a situation that's not bad but because you know you could do or have better and want that bad enough, you are willing to let go of the 'ok' situation for better, for greater.  This can be applied to jobs, relationships, schooling,  etc.  Why walk when you can fly right?!

About this look, I loved the plaid/checkered pattern and also liked the 2 in 1 with a shirt look to it.  I do have to get this taken in for a slightly more fitted look but I think a dress like this dress is one that can transition well from work to an outing.  To complete the look, I added a black bag and the booties to make it a bit more edgy .  Thanks for visiting!

  3. Cute dress hun, I liked the fact that it has a dress shirt hem, it gives the basic dress a formal and fashionable look. And those booties are the perfect touch of edge to this look.
