Radiant Orchid Obsession

So, I may or may not have a problem. I’ll let you be the judge. Lately I have been into purple–I mean really into purple. As in I currently have dark purple hair-if that’s not love for a color I don’t know what is. So when I found out that Radiant Orchid was going to be one of THE “it” colors for 2014 my little heart did happy dances!

Is revamping your wardrobe on your New Years Resolution list?

As a teenager and even as a newly wed I didn’t worry too much about fashion. Oh sure-I loved clothes but in Wyoming getting dressed up for a date meant wearing my DC Shoes t-shirt and a nice pair of jeans!

After living on the East Coast for the past 7 years, and especially after living in Boston, I grew to love and appreciate the value of dressing up for the sake of dressing up! Like my favorite quote from this article says: “…you shouldn’t necessarily wear whatever you want, even if you can. And it’s not just a career concern. Yes, you could probably wear jeans to church, the theater, important celebrations — plenty of people do it all the time. But does that show enough respect for those kinds of occasions? Aren’t they worth the effort?”

As a mom of two, a Christian who believes in modesty, and a woman who wants to look amazing, hot, and still like I “got it” it can be hard to reconcile all those different factors into amazing, modest outfits that work for my lifestyle. Because while I do love to dress up more these days-I still need clothing that is practical and comfortable!

When I saw that a friend had “liked” Mikarose on Facebook I noticed that their tagline is: Reinventing Modesty. I was immediately intrugied so I clicked over, liked  them, then started browsing through their huge selection of *gorgeous* clothes! I loved that they were exactly my style and fit every part of my wants for my new wardrobe. When I got a chance to review the beautiful Serena dress in Cinnamon I was over the moon.

So comfortable that I could sleep in it it hugs every part of my post kid body that it should and loosely flows where it should. It’s absolutely my new favorite dress! The only thing that I noticed about it is that it hugged my “back pocket” as my new sister-in-law calls it, a little snuggly-so I’d recommend wearing a slip, spanx, or leggings underneath (I chose to go with some fun black sparkily leggings and boots as you can see in the pictures! I can’t go off about how much I love this dress enough and I’ve gotten so many compliments while wearing it!

One Lucky Winner will receive a $50 Gift Card to Mikarose to buy a fabulous dress, skirt, blouse, or accessories for themselves.
