Outfit: Pleated Peach

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

Welcome back from the holiday weekend!!! How did you all fare? I hope you guys were able to scoop up all the items you wanted....and restrain yourselves from the ones that looked like you wanted them because they were on sale, lol. It's hard, I know. But I think I did a good job this past weekend...mainly because I worked so I was basically unable to go out and spend anything significant #winning ;-) Let's hope I can keep this up throughout the holiday season.

Below, I've posted pics from my homie's baby shower that I co-hosted along with her mom and our other "sisters". I did a horrible job of snapping photos....but that's only because I was fulfilling my hosting duties so I couldn't grab my camera for those fab photo ops we had. Oh well. I did take a couple subpar pics anyway and I included them at the end. My outfit pics are clear because I took those after I left :-)

Yea.....still warm down here in the sunshine state. Boooooo!!! I don't care that it's fall, I dress for the weather people.

I broke out this new skirt I bought from Urban Outfitters.....lemme just say that they have the best deals sometimes. This lovely number was only $4.99!!! I felt like I was thrifting, LOL.

Lemme also introduce you all to my new statement necklace. Isn't she lovely?

Whoa....showing toooooo much gum in this pic. But I kept it because you can see the shoes really well at this angle. Oh the things I do and the sacrifices I make for this blog ;-)

Necklace - Street vendor
Tank and skirt - Urban Outfitters

Heels - Chinese Laundry via Piperlime.com

Like I said above, my photog skills were limited at the baby shower. I literally ran to get this shot. My friend's mom and little brother presented her with a very special gift. It was a tear jerker. And can I just mention how absolutely FAB her mom looks! She's 50 years old btw. Jealous!!!!

Still missed a full frontal look of my homie but that heffa was sooooo fly! She's a gorgeous girl and she continues to wear heels and dress supa fly throughout her pregnancy. As a fellow fashionista, I'm so pround of her *insert image of teary eyes and hand placed delicately over my heart here*

 That little bundle of joy is going to be SPOILED!!! Do you see the gifts? And those are not even the tip of the iceberg!

Publix cake.....I.DIE. If you ever visit Florida or southern parts of Georgia, you must stop in to a Publix (one of our fab grocery chains). Please don't leave without trying their cakes. They will make you slap a hoe for trying to take a piece without your permission. It's that good....trust!

Well, fun times were had by all. Until the next riveting adventure!

Looks like you guys had fun. And yes, the baby is going to be spoiled! But that's part of the fun!

Gurl, you looked good! Dress for the weather. I would too if I lived somewhere that was warm most of the time.

Gurl...you made me chuckle a couple of times reading this post. This is a very cute outfit! Very flowy, dainty and feminine. Those shoes are hot!

Love the outfit, the heels are too cute!!! The shower looked fun!!

See Shanequa I'm soooooo jealous right now that you all can still wear sandals, shorts and tank tops!!! Boooooo is right!! LOL It's been warmer than normal here in Ga which has been great; no need for skull caps, gloves, ear muffs, big coats. I like the weather to be warm enough to wear sandals, a sundresses, shorts etc... but also cool enough to some days throw on a scarf, some boots, a cute sweater or jacket and be gone. I HATE blistering heat and frigid cold!! It's suppose to be cold enough here tomorrow that they are predicting snow flurries, not looking forward to that!!! :-(

Ooo I love the skirt! It's such a shame that I never wear them though because I'd love to buy a midi maxi skirt with pleats, love the colour too! xoxo
