Been gone WAY to long. Nearly a year since my last blog post. 2016 has been a challenging year!! Life has thrown me for loops, tossed me back and forth and dropped me on my head this past year, but I'm finally feeling like I'm headed for a New Start in a better direction. 

I actually missed blogging.. it was my therapy playing dress up. I haven't completely fallen off the grid, I did maintain my FaceBook and Instagram (@prettydarkgirl) posts for the most part. Glad to get back on here and see some familiar faces and many New ones. Blogging hasn't lost its luster for you all so I'm coming back into the fold.

Here are some looks from Summer until now. Hope my readers are still out there and haven't completely forgotten about lil ole me.

When the color combination makes the outfit POP !! I love Gray and Yellow together the two shades compliment one another so well. Today I'm wearing a classic Stripe button down from H&M paired with Charcoal Gray Faux Leather pants from LOFT and a pop of yellow in my belt and shoes from Charlotte Russe.

Here we are in the middle of October and Dallas is still experiencing summer like high temps.. record breaking 96 degress today. I know I shouldn't have any complaints because i lived in the Midwest most of my life and we dreamed of warm temps that would last into Fall. I'm just ready for  a cool down and the transition to fall clothes.

Todays outfit is simple and comfortable. Wearing a plaid top from Old Navy and GAP Boot Cut denim with my Burgundy Ankle Boots.

Navy Jumpsuit

Summer is coming to a end and soon the temps will begin to lower.. maybe not here in Dallas but I'm ready to start my transition to fall wear.

Thrift Romper..and Mule/Clogs

Its a beautiful Saturday in my hood..

I wore this Romper I made from jumpsuit that I thrifted years ago. I snagged these cute mule/clogs from Goodwill for $5 the other day and couldn't wait to wear them. They are super comfortable and easy to walk in. Last night me and the girls had dinner at Max's Wine Dine during Dallas Restaurant week. The vibe was chill and they live performer was the bomb.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!!

Polka Dot Mini

It's been a minute since I last has been full of challenges these past few weeks. For most of July I was in and no out of the hospital and just now getting to feeling like my normal self. Thankful to be on the road to recovery..  and I am grateful for God's healing and blessing of improved health. I have been reprogrammed and will no longer take my health for granted. It is much to precious and fragile.

Any who today I wore this cute flirty dress from Plato's Closet I snagged a while ago. Its originally from A'Gaci and I love the style and dots. The temps in Dallas have been scorching in the 100s plus for two weeks now so it's imperative to stay cool and pack on the sunscreen. 

Wishing you all a fantabulous week!!!
