sleepy floral

Skirt (worn like this); Top (worn like this); Belt; Clutch; Bracelets & Shoes- Thrifted; Necklace- Local Vendor in St. Kitts
My apologies for the short & sweet nature of this post, I've been awake since 4 am to grab an early morning flight and my head is all woozy (when you don't drink caffeine, it's hard to stay awake plus I don't think those melatonin relaxation pills I took to calm my nerves on the plane are helping matters!)

Oh right, I'm supposed to talk about fashion over here! Well this is an outfit I wore to work this week... and that's all I can conjure up for now! I have never been someone who could function properly without at least 7 hours sleep- let's hope next time we meet in the blogosphere I am more eloquent!
As you read this I am in Minneapolis for a 3 day Dress for Success conference. Our work days start at 6am and don't end until 10pm (!) so I am looking forward to catching up on my zzz's when I return. 

Have a fabulous weekend everyone and get enough sleep for the both of us! :) 


  1. Love the combination of prints. And that statement necklace is so fun! Best of luck this weekend and do your best to get some sleep!


  2. Very nice outfit! I love the necklace and skirt!

    I hope the conference goes well! I wish we could have met up while you were here, but maybe you'll be back someday! :)

  3. HAHAHA! Get some rest girl. Sleep will help. Enjoy your conference and your outfit looks great. Dress for Success is awesome. I love what they do for women.

  4. I like the stripes & floral combo, it's one of my favourite ways to pattern mix :) I hope you write about the dress for success conference, I'm curious to hear what it's all about/what went down!

  5. I am loving those shoes, and the black and bright coral combo. You look so sleek and professional, but also fun!

    It takes a lot more than a melatonin pill to calm me down enough for a flight :P Oh. Boy :P

  6. Safe travels - hope you have a fantastic time in Minneapolis.

  7. Hope you have a good trip! Love your subtle pattern mixing here, and that statement necklace is adorable :)


  8. I like that skirt very much! I have similar prints too, and I can never be tired of them! Very sweet!
    Hope you have a great time during the conference!

  9. i love florals and stripes together! the belt finishes it off perfectly!!!

  10. enjoy your time there and try not to fall asleep when it's not the right time for it, hehe. oh and I love the colour of your shoes!

  12. The skirt is so the bold floral mixed with the patterned top. And I am SO BUMMED that you are on my home turf but too terribly busy for a meet up :( Come back soon!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
