I'm back!  I got back in town from Dallas over the weekend and am trying to get caught up with school from being out of town.  Saturday, my sister and I went skydiving again, and you can see a picture and video of that here.  It is still one of the best experiences of my life.  It really isn't scary at all in my opinion, and I would highly recommend doing it.  You won't regret it!  Yesterday was my first day as an assistant credit manager, and the day just flew by!  I'm a little behind this week with blogging, but I'll make up for it this weekend.  My new job is going to be challenging but definitely worth it!  Also, it only took me about 6 months, but I recently learned that my follow by email link wasn't working.  I have fixed that, and you can follow me by email now here.

Today I wore my new LAmade dress.  I wanted to show you how you can easily wear a dress two ways - as a dress and as a top.  I paired it with a striped skirt, a blazer and booties to make it work appropriate.  Then I ditched the skirt, and wore it out for night.  I love the cut out shoulders on it and see myself wearing it quite often as a top.  It is definitely very versatile!  And use code WMHH20 for 20% off your purchase!
Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup with The Fashion Canvas and myself! Today's trend is boots and booties! Show us how you wear them - over the knee, ankle boots, cutout booties.  It doesn't matter what clothing item it is or where it's from; we'd love to see it. Here are our top 2 dress and skirt looks from last week.
