A Little This, A Little That...

Still love this photo of Giovanna Battaglia that I first shared here back in March of last year. I would absolutely wear this look in a about you? 

Love this image of Jackie O. in New York 1970...this look is still relevant today. In fact, THIS dress in 'Ecru' from Milly would be an excellent option for recreating her look. 

(Btw, you can save 20% during the Saks Fifth Avenue Friends & Family event with code FRIENDS at checkout.)

Speaking of Milly and this pocketbook (and a lot of other things on her website, too).
Milly is offering Free Shipping on Online orders until 4.29.12 with code SPRING2012. :)

Here are some of my picks:

I wore my own Milly dress to do some shopping for a client at the mall this past weekend. The dress was incredibly comfortable to wear, and I received a ton of compliments on it, too...definitely one of my best and favorite purchases to date. :)

I chose not to wear a watch or bracelets since the cuffs have beautiful gold buttons on them that act as 'built in' jewelry.

I just love the way my Zsa Zsa Jeweled Thong Sandals in 'Gold' and the gold hardware on my ChloĆ© Red leather 'Paddington' Satchel match perfectly with the Gold buttons on the dress, too. As I've said before...little details like that make me happy. :) 

Life in the Fabulous Florida Mommy household continues to be extremely busy these days. As many of you know, my 6 year-old son has Cerebral Palsy, which requires daily therapy at home, and an orthopedic brace to be worn on his affected leg. Well, he has another Therapy Clinic at Shriners Hospital for Children in Tampa coming up soon, so the boys and I will be staying on the Gulf Coast for 9 days to cut down on our travel time to the hospital each day that week. 

As I'm sure you can imagine, there is a lot for me to do in preparing for the 5 of us to be gone from home for that amount of time, so I am in the process of taking care of all of that now. Add to that the normal day-to-day domestic duties, homeschooling, work, etc., and it makes for very busy days...every day. (If I don't respond to comments quickly or seem to be 'around' the blogs as much these days, that is why.)

Of course the crazy and hectic days are all more than worth it when my boys are involved. The therapy and care my son receives at Shriners hospital is phenomenal, and I always leave with a new Home Treatment Plan, too...a win, win situation. :)

I plan to start packing the middle of next week...mainly dresses and sandals this time around since the weather is warm, but I'll toss in my cropped denim jacket from Anthropologie too, since it can get a tad chilly in the hospital. I'll have limited internet access while we're gone, but will try to post Polyvores of my daily outfits at some point (maybe even a few IRL  pics if I get the chance, too. :)

Here are a few of the outfits I wore during our 2 week Therapy clinic last November...






That's it for now...

So what have you been up to this week? Do you have any special plans for the weekend? Please do share...I always love to hear from you! :)

Get The Look: Angela Caputi Chain Link Bracelet


From the moment I spotted the Angela Caputi Chain-link bracelets on Viviana Volpicella back in 2010, I knew I had to have them! Not only are they big, bold, beautiful arm candy, but also the perfect way to easily add color to any outfit.

As I've mentioned numerous times since purchasing my bracelets from Serena Italian Imports in December of 2010...I absolutely LOVE them, wear them repeatedly, and receive compliments on them every time I do! Even though they are big, they are still very comfortable to wear, and add a special finishing touch to each and every look.

Here are just a handful of the many outfits that I've worn them with:
