Wearing: LOFT Animal print

With a cardi for the office!


And without a cardi to head to the neighbors for a graduation BBQ.

Details, details:


This tank top in Dusty Rose was my attempt to add some color to my wardrobe! Something brighter than the usual taupe, olive, gray, brown and black that I’m consistently drawn to. But get this, I also just bought a new dress in a similar color. Do you ever notice that once you buy one item, similar items or colors seem to follow? Kind of like when you’re thinking about buying a new car, every car that passes you happens to be the car you’re wanting to buy? Hmmm.

A note about the shoes. These actually have a skinny and short wedge heel that I find a little hard to walk in. I was pretty sure I was going to sprain my ankles yesterday. These are far more dangerous than my four inch heels!

And that shrub that looks like it’s dying, we just replanted it over the weekend. My husband usually takes care of all the landscaping/outdoors ‘stuff’ but I hardly see him anymore so I thought I’d head out there with him so we could spend some together. Fun, right? 😀 I’m worried that the shrubs we replanted are going to die – because every plant I touch dies – but he assures me they’ll be ok. We’ll see. I’m a bit nervous at this point.

Wearing: Target Mossimo Dress in Seaweed

I. LOVE. THIS. DRESS.

It is so comfortable and fits perfectly. Sleeveless dresses and tops can be tricky because most of the time the arm holes are too big. The wrap style of the top is tricky too as it can be too low – or pop open unexpectedly. Not the case with this dress. Everything is perfect. AND it’s so comfortable. The only thing you should know about this dress is that it wrinkles easily so you’ll have to iron it.  But I iron everything as it is, so it doesn’t bother me.

I need to figure out a new place so I’m not squiting in all my pictures. Sorry. But it’s hard when you’re taking it after work with two kids running around. Aigh. My life. 🙂

I Try (and Buy) Banana Republic Outlet Shorts

A couple weeks ago I had to to hit the outlets for an exchange. My sweet husband bought me an outfit for Mother’s Day and although he got the right label size, the clothes fit far too large. He did GOOD though. I loved the outfit he picked for me, which I’m sure will pop up on here soon.

BR outlet had a 50% off sale the day we went and to my delight, there were a TON of new summer items that I loved. I’ve been on the lookout for white shorts and the first thing that caught my eye upon entrance was a pair of white eyelet shorts.

All the shorts I tried on were the “Ryan Fit”. I found the fit to be perfect for me and exactly what I need at my age. 🙂 They were $39.50 plus 50% off.

The first pair I tried was the white eyelet material. I love these because let’s face it, white is HARD to wear. You have to be sure that it’s not see through! These were made perfectly. No panties showing through!

I also fell in love with a pair of olive with black print shorts that to me, reminded me of the top of a screw. Two half circles.


Same Ryan Fit shorts in an gray-ish olive khaki color. These had a button on each tab. A small detail that I loved. In this photo, I’m also wearing the top my husband bought me. I wish I could tell you how much it cost, but I didn’t look. I’m weird like that. I don’t like to know how much a gift someone gives me costs (no matter how low or high) – even my own husband. I thinks it’s…rude? Haha. Is that weird??


I loved them all and had the hardest time deciding which one to take home with me! I knew I definitely wanted the white eyelet and was torn as to whether I should get a second pair and if so, which??? I loved the olive with black print because they were so unique but I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to make it into as many combinations as I would be able to with the solid pair.  After MUCH discussion and hemming and hawing from me, we both agreed the olive with black print were the best pick.

I’m looking to pair the white ones with my Steve Madden Shelbi sandals for a casual look and my Chinese Laundry Sassyfras platforms (see them on me here) for a sassier look. The olive with black print will look great with my Charlotte Russe cork wedges (see them on me here) or one of my simple black flip flops. I have endless tops to go with the white pair and I’m struggling with the olive and black print, but I’m hoping something will just pop out at me! I actually really like the look of my olive Loft blouse that I had on in the fitting room, but South Carolina’s getting a little too hot for that!

One of the reasons why I struggled with the printed pair was EXACTLY because I didn’t feel I’d get enough pairings out of it. In my frugal shopping ways, I always buy things that I know will give me multiple outfit options. Friends and coworkers think that I never wear the same thing twice, but if they only knew! I mix my favorite go-to pieces all the time. I don’t think they realize it because depending on how you style the outfit, you draw attention to different parts it.

Great deal on Revlon nail polish at CVS!

CVS has a great deal on Revlon nail polishes this week! I believe I’ve mentioned before that Revlon is my favorite drug store brand for nail polishes. There aren’t a ton of colors to select from – but the polish is of great quality and they do a good job of putting out a few trendy colors, which is really all you need!

This week, you can get $4 Extra Care Bucks back for purchasing a bottle of nail polish at $4.99 a bottle. Extra Care Bucks is CVS ‘money’ that prints on your receipt which you can then use to purchase more items at any CVS. (You have to have a CVS card and scan it with each purchase. It’s free to sign up.)  You can get up to six bottles with this deal. What I suggest you doing is ‘multiple transactions’, meaning, buy one bottle of nail polish and use the $4 ECBs you get back to buy a second bottle.  Here’s what your transaction would look like:

TRANSACTION #1:
Pay $4.99 +tax for 1 Bottle of Revlon Nail Color
Get $4 ECBs back on bottom of receipt

TRANSACTION #2:
Buy 1 bottle of Revlon nail color
Use $4 ECBs from previous purchase
Pay $.99 +tax for second bottle AND get $4 ECBs back

You end up paying $5.98 +tax out of pocket and will end up with $4 ECBs left over, which means you’re getting two bottles for $1.98 +tax.

My summertime favorite is a Barbie pink called “Sweet Tart”. It’s a bubble gum pink and looks great against a tan on fingers and toes. I love it and am on my SECOND bottle since I started using it a year ago. Not sure if it’s still available, but look for it!

On the opposite end, a great color for fall and winter, is my other favorite, a gorgeous deep, dark burgundy color called “Vixen”. It’s a fantastic alternative to a black manicure because it’s dark but not black. It’s very sexy (as the name implies) and looks great on short nails.

Let me know if you have any questions on CVS Extra Care Bucks or Revlon nail color. I’m no expert, but I’d love to help you save on these great polishes this week!
