Cardinal Red

It's been over a month since I've posted on this blog!... and I have a confession... I've been watching the entire Grey's Anatomy series before the new season starts. So any time I've had free the last month (i.e. Elaina sleeping, no homework, no work) I've been deep into the Hollywood medical world. :) I'm happy to say that I'm almost finished! I'm in the middle of the eighth season. I have no idea how I watched them that fast, but let's just say that I've had some late nights. My house and blogs have suffered. So hopefully when I'm finished, I can get back to my normal life. ;)
Today's blog is St. Louis Cardinal inspired!... Well, sort of... not really. But I felt the calling to wear red today. Continuing my red streak, I dressed Elaina too! Here's our red Sunday attire.
 
 
My outfit: Dress- Francesca's, Belt- Kohls, My "Elaina" necklace -Etsy, Shoes(not pictured, but my black and gold flats), Kohls
Elaina's outfit: Dress- 77kids, Cardigan- Children's Place, Shoes- Old Navy, Headband- handmade by ME!
 
I love this red dress I'm wearing. The top features lace detail. For work, you can pair this dress with a simple cardigan. Lots of colors work, but I've worn an off-white/cream color and a black quarter-length cardigan with this dress, and a cute statement belt over the two finishes it off. And then I keep my jewelry simple. My sister and I bought this one and a navy blue one at Francesca's in St. Louis to share since we are the same size! I shop online at 77kids a lot! I love their clothes. So far, I've had great luck with them. They all seem to be made well and Elaina has been able to wear the clothes longer!
