Get to Know Me

August 11, 2011 - Leave a Response

I have found that I can do a few things well, but lately I’ve been trying to do A LOT of things well and I just can’t do it.  So after some thought I’ve decided to stop this blog and post Thursday latelies on our family blog that we’ve had for years.  I do a much better job keeping that current and since I have some repeat followers I decided to just consolidate to one and try to keep the one blog very updated.  So thanks for following me on here, but now please follow me OVER HERE!  You’ll probably like it better anyways, I find that my favorite blogs are the ones that I feel I actually get to know the people and believe me you will get to know the good, the bad and the ugly over on that site.

I Tried It

July 26, 2011 - Leave a Response

Some of the blogs I follow are fashion blogs of awesome clothing remixers like Kendi.  They put together the strangest combinations of styles and colors and ever time I read their blog I think, hmm, I don’t think I would have put that together, but I like it.  That was my thought process Sunday morning when I went to my closet to get dressed.  I took one of my favorite shirts and one of my favorite skirts and while the color in the top didn’t exist in the skirt I wore it together and I think it turned out kind of fun! I don’t think it’s a total stunner, but at least I tried it and now I’m in the mind set of trying to become a little more outside the box.  How about you?  Are you a remixer and if so what are some of your favorite color combinations…I need some inspiration!

Skirt: old Limited, Top: Limited, Earrings: Gifted, Necklace: Stella and Dot, Belt: LOFT, Shoes: Melissa from Bella.

The hubs and I need to seriously work on our photo locations, but at least I’m finally posting pictures right?

I’m weird. Ok now that we got that out there I can tell you about this outfit. If I’m ever going to be seen in front of people I try to buy a new piece of clothing to wear. It eases my mind about the day and it’s just one less thing to worry about. I lead worship at church once a month and even for this I like to get something new, I usually try to spend $10 or less and I got this new top at the Limited sale for $5. I paired it with a Loft belt and cardigan. It turns out if was the first time I wore either of those items too. Not sure if it worked, but it was kind of a monochromatic look. What are your thoughts, are you a lover of tone on tone clothing?

Tank Tops

July 20, 2011 - Leave a Response

Before moving to Texas I didn’t have very many tank tops.  I’m not exactly a girl who can get away with wearing a strapless bra so a lot of tanks are out of the question for me because I’m not a strap showing kind of girl.  I’ve slowly started to build my tank collection.  I only allow myself $25 a month for clothing.  You’d be surprised how far that stretches when you are super selective in what you buy and you find ridiculous sales.  This top was one of those finds.  I ran into Limited when they were having their 50% off sale merchandise this past week and came out with 2 tops that totaled less than $10 together.  The first one I wore on Saturday while we worked around the house and then I nannied all evening.  I think it was originally $35 and I scored this one at 90% off for $3.50…I need to go back and see if they have more in other colors.

Date Night

July 15, 2011 - Leave a Response

I love date night.  I am blessed to have a job where I get off at 1:30 on Fridays so I have time to come home, shower, paint my toes, shave my legs, do my makeup and style my hair.  All things I pretty much don’t have time for the rest of the week.  We had plans to got to a recommended restaurant, but when we called to make a reservation they said we couldn’t and it would be over an hour wait so we decided to go to Reales a locally owned Italian restaurant, it was DELICIOUS.  Definitely went over on calories today, but once a week is acceptable and it was worth it!  Here is what I wore… the dress is pretty short, but I figured since I was out with my sweetie it was acceptable!

P.S. I apologize for no Thursday latelies yesterday.  There are a lot of reasons I didn’t post, but I promise I’ll have a video next week that  you can see my new beautiful woodwork.
