Mahogany Closet Mondays Fashion Link Up

With everything going on with work, the kids, and my dad's health, I have been feeling like I haven''t been a able to give my blog the time and attention it deserves lately and I have been feeling bad about it. But school is out and I am off of work for the summer!!! (Yayyyyy!!!!!!) Which means I will have more time to devote to my blog. Well first I plan to do almost nothing for about a week to help recuperate, but then I am committing to really spending time on Mahogany Closet and working on making it better. Do you guys have any suggestions? 

I kind of just threw this outfit together, but I really liked how it came out. It all started with the shoes, I bought these on Shoedazzle and fell in love. I really wanted to find a great outfit to wear with them. Before I go on, can I just say that I think my online shoe shopping may be getting out of hand. Hi my name is Melissa and I have a problem. I have been getting amazing deals, which it what keeps pulling me back in, but I have bought so many shoes lately that I have boxes and boxes of shoes that I haven't worn. More shoes keep coming before I can wear the last pairs. I think I need someone to just take my computer away lol. Seriously though, I am really going to commit to not buying anything new for a while. Nothing new until I at least wear everything I have bought so far ... Okay, now back to our regularly scheduled outfit discussion. The striped pencil skirt and tank top I got from Old Navy like 3 years ago, but I hardly wore it because I stayed away from wearing fitting clothes. I didn't like how my stomach poked out, even when I wearing control top underwear, but now that I have figured out a good under clothes control situation I am starting the love these kind of looks. The sunglasses I got on eBay for $2 (boy, I love a good deal) and the purse I made. When I went to go pick up the purse, my 10 year daughter told said "Mommy I don't think that matches your outfit". It may not exactly match, but I really like how it goes with the outfit. It's not matchy matchy and I am kind of dinging the mixing of prints and the vibe. What do you think?
