I hope you all are having an amazing weekend and day so far! I had a fun filled weekend between a bachelorette party and a Sunday (too much) fun day I think today is going to be a little more low key 🙂 The Mr. got back from the Indy 500 last night and since all of these super hero movies are out I predict we will end up at the theatre today, but soaking up all the time I can in my pajamas!
Also, taking advantage of this down time to do some online shopping during my favorite sale of the year!! Below are items I am currently coveting and are all in my cart right now, haha! I will need to scale it back a bit so which items should I choose?!
You can never go wrong with black and white! I accessorized with bright pink earrings and nude heels to “summer up” this look! Unfortunately, these exact shorts are sold out, but I linked up 2 must have pairs above!
What are your plans for the Memorial day weekend?! The Mr. will be out of town attending the Indy 500. He goes every year for “work”. Such a hard life he lives! LOL 🙂
I will be staying back in Houston celebrating a girlfriend’s bachelorette party and then I will be spending some much needed quality time, pool side, with some of my best friends. If you aren’t following me on snap (roselyn_m) you may want to start now as I’m pretty funny after a few glasses of champs! 🙂 I’d love to hear what you are all up to!
As always, thank you so much for reading! Wishing you all a weekend that is as fabulous as you are!
Fun prints have quickly filled my closet this season and I ain’t mad about it! Does this slip dress look familiar? I linked it a few weeks ago in a post here. It’s so comfy and can be styled so many ways. If you guys only wanted to buy one dress this summer make it this one (in all colors)! Haha!
This dress is as comfy as it is versatile! I love the many ways you can style this look and I absolutely adore the vibrant palm print against the pink!
This printed slip dress is so perfect for a night out especially paired with a cape blazer. I love how the cape blazer dresses up the look, but unlike a regular blazer it definitely brings a little more sass!
I hope you all are having a great week so far, but no matter how great the week we are all still looking forward to a long weekend! Am I right?!
Thank you all so much for reading! Happy Wednesday!

Yes it’s Monday and yes I’m already talking about the coming weekend 🙂
I am all about getting festive for every National holiday, but going out and buying something new for every holiday can get costly so today I am sharing 2 Memorial Day inspired outfits that I pulled out of my closet and instantly made holiday appropriate with 1 simple accessory, a bandana!
Accessorizing with bandanas are all the rage right now so if you have been wanting to try the trend now is the time!
So I have 2 confessions. First one is that I purchased both of these bandanas at the Dollar Tree last year! They were actually part of my table décor for the 4th of July but this year they will be part of my ensemble. Second confession is that both pairs of sunglasses shown above were purchased at souvenir shops LOL. The American flag ones were from our DC trip in February. I was itching to wear them again!
So throw on your favorite white tee and jeans or your favorite romper, accessorize with a bandana and you will be on trend ready to celebrate a much needed 3 day weekend!
But let’s not forget the real reason of the Memorial Day celebration. We must pay our respects to those who have died for our freedom and let’s also be sure to thank those for their service any chance we get! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I can’t wait to see your upcoming bandana accessorizing!
I really should be calling this post woman crush wednesday because I am kind of crushing on this total boss babe winemaker, business woman and mother named Gloria Collell.
“Gloria is from a family dedicated to wine so naturally many of Gloria’s memories growing up revolve around wine: the aroma of the bodega when the barrels would be filled by the wholesaler; the fairs where, even as a child, she helped her parents show wine; and most of all, the tastings her family conducted at home”.
Mia wines hosted a dinner and tasting at Armandos last Tuesday evening. When I received the invitation I had not yet heard of Mia wines, but I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to meet the winemaker herself and to learn more about the brand/wine.
I had the honor to be seated at the same table as Gloria. As expected, she presented gracefully and explained each wine as we tasted it with food, but it was the intimate table conversation where I came to realize that she truly was in tuned and interested in the consumer’s feedback about the wines.
When describing the brand and her vision, she stated that it was a creation for the modern consumer. I would describe someone like myself as a modern consumer. An individual who loves a good glass of wine but by no means is a wine connoisseur. When it comes to wine, my pallet knows what it likes, but my wine vocabulary lacks in a sense that I could not tell you what key “notes” I favored. Does this sound like you? I know I like white wine but I don’t like it too sweet. I know I like red wine but I don’t want it too dry or “oakey”. This may sound silly and pretty simple to a wine connoisseur yet it seemed as if no one else was listening to the modern consumer…until now.
Like I said I was very lucky to be able to converse with Gloria as she shared the consumer and marketing research they did to ensure the brands success. She was very knowledgeable in the industry and the wine definitely validate that her and the Mia team are listening to what the modern consumer is asking for. The wine is fresh, easy to drink and budget friendly! It’s the type of wine you can stock up on for those unexpected guests and serve to everyone’s satisfaction.
The 2 wines that tied as my favorite were the Red and the White, then the Moscato Rose, Moscato and Rose all tied for second 🙂
Mia wines can be purchased in a few Specs locations as of today and the Moscato Rose can be found in a few HEB’s, however have no fear as they have shipments currently on the water from Barcelona and you can expect to find them in more Spec’s ad HEB’s at the beginning of June! MSRP range from $9-$12.
Also, friends and family do not be surprised when you get a bottle or two in your next birthday basket!
Have you tried this lovely wine yet?! I would love to hear your thoughts!
As you can probably tell by my outfits, I love my prints! If you are weary of trying the printed pants trend a neutral color like these are a great way to start. I paired mine with a brightly colored cami for the perfect summer look and topped it off with a blazer to make it church and office appropriate.
You could pair yours with your favorite summer color or keep it in the neutral family with a beige or white top. Any color would be equally cute as these pants do all the styling for you!
I wanted to share these books with you that I recently purchased at unveiledwife.com. We received 2 books for us each to read for the next 31 days. Chapters cover topics such as your wife’s/husbands health, clinging to truth, breaking strongholds, relinquishing worries and also a chapter that covers grace in marriage. Throughout the book there are challenges for both of us. I did skip ahead to take a peek at the first challenge, but I won’t share that because we aren’t that far yet. 🙂 The Unveiled Wife has many other books too so be sure to check out her site. I think these books are so great because though Brandon and I pray daily and for each other it’s nice to know that we are being guided to pray for specific areas of each others life ensuring that we are challenged to make prayer a priority. Like anything in life, it’s always a good thing to change things up! Even in prayer! I’ll be sure to share when we are done reading!
I would love to hear if you have read these books or any of her other books!
I hope you all had a great weekend and wishing you a blessed week!
