Candy Dots

This polka dot peplum is one of my faves. The pink dots remind me of candy and any item of clothing that can remind you of candy is an obvious winner.

This past week in Boston was just crazy. I experienced so many emotions, from sadness to anger, to extreme terror to relief. Though it seems to be over, it's far from it for all the victims. If you would like to help, consider donating to One Fund Boston.

On a much happier note, today, I have the honor of guest posting for one of my best blog friends, Shanna, over at Because Shanna Said So, while she visits London as the very first Wallis U.S. blogger ambassador. Head on over to read about why I started blogging and show some love!

Oh I love these skinnys! The color is amazing and they fit you so perfectly.
I can't even imagine how terrifying it has been for you in Boston. This situation has rocked our nation but being so close to it is obviously heightens the emotions. Glad you stayed safe, my friend. YOu have been in my thoughts since I first heard of the marathon attack.

Absolutely a winner!!!
I'm so sorry Boston had to experience the events of the past week, especially the direct victims and their families. Indirectly, everyone one there is a victim in a way. It's great to see the people rallying to show that acts of terror won't keep the city or the country down.
Go Boston!

It's definitely been a crazy week of emotions. I visited Boylston Street yesterday with my fiance and it's even more moving to be close to where so much has occurred one week ago today.

You're outfits are always so sweet and comfy looking. I enjoyed reading about why you started blogging on your friend's website and wish her the best on her visit to London. I've never heard of Wallis before but I definitely saw a few things that caught my eye. ;)
