Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I love how versatile a LBD (little black dress) can be (see how I've styled mine in the past, here & here).  For a chillier spring day, I belted a utility-style jacket over my dress & added gold accessories for a luxe yet casual look.

Dress: Francesca's; Jacket: Forever 21 (similar); Sandals: Sam Edelman; Sunglasses: Ray Ban; Jewelry: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Francesca's (similar)

We had lots of family time this weekend celebrating my mother's birthday! Lots of people talk about how their Mom is their 'BFF,' but mine isn't, she's my mommy.  She's there for me when I need advice, love or support.  She still cooks me dinner & folds my laundry & takes me on shopping trips to the mall.  She truly does it all for my family & me. My mom is so much more than any friend could ever be.  Happy belated Mom!
