8.31.15

My humble apologies for being so late in posting today. I started the new job and it was a bit overwhelming. But I think it’s going to be great fit for me – and hopefully I can get my act together soon and get back to a regular posting schedule!

Thankfully the office is very casual – so I don’t have to go shopping for a bunch of “professional” type pieces. I really want to stretch what I have as far as possible – economy is the key right now. Can anyone relate???

Have a great week!

 

Today’s Outfit:

Faded Glory top: Walmart
Faded Glory white capri pants: Walmart
Montego Bay sandals: Payless (I don’t even remember when I got them!)

Just Like That


8.28.15

 

And just like that, it’s Friday again. Seriously, is it just me or do the weeks seem to fly by faster? I’ve been in overdrive this week – I start my new job on Monday, so I’ve been trying to cram everything I can into this week. With the new job, singing gigs, spending time with friends and family it’s been just a little hectic. But I guess that’s what makes life interesting, right?

The green maxi skirt in today’s outfit is probably 3 years old. I found it at CATO and struggled for awhile to find the right tops for it. Today I just threw caution to the wind and went with  what felt right. And it did, all day long. Comfortable, cool and well, easy. Three very important components to any summer outfit.

Have a great weekend!

Today’s Outfit:

Sleeveless printed shirt: CATO
Coral camisole: Ann Taylor Outlet
Olive knit maxi skirt: CATO
B.O.C. gold sandals: DSW (last season)

8.24.15

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was good, but busy – which is a good thing. With Fall approaching I can feel things starting to gear up and I know we’ll turn around and it will be December. Life has a way of speeding by, doesn’t it?

It’s still pretty hot here – we’ve got a few more weeks of 90+ degree days, but at least it’s starting to cool off again at night (if you call 75 degrees cool…). I’m desperately trying not to buy any clothes for awhile – so I’ll be trying some new combinations in the coming weeks. I hope you’ll like them!

Have a great week!

Today’s Outfit:

Merona olive top: Target
Denim skirt: Old Navy
Brown leather belt: Target
Franco Sarto brown wedge sandals: DSW (last season)

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Changes


8.21.15

Happy Friday! This is has been an interesting week. My part-time job ended (officially) last week and I dreaded the prospect of having to look for another one. I revised my resume, posted it online and sent out as many emails as I could. One went to my neighborhood online bulletin board. I got a reply that afternoon from a neighbor (one I’ve yet to meet!) asking for my resume. She passed it along to her dad, who passed it on to someone he knew. I got a call Tuesday from a local business owner and scheduled an interview for yesterday (Thursday). At the end of the interview he offered me the job! Y’all – I didn’t really want another full time job but was willing to pursue any leads that came up. Well this job is part time! And I can work from home part of every week so I have the flexibility I wanted and still be able to sing, write blogs and generally have a life. Not going to sugarcoat it – I really prayed about this and am so delighted. God answers prayer. Yes. He does.

Have a great weekend!

Today’s Outfit:

Orange and white dotted knit top: Chico’s (Clearance/recent)
Denizen stretch denim shorts: Target (last year)
Aerosoles brown wedge sandals: DSW (last season)

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Black and White


8.19.15I find myself reaching for this skirt more and more lately. Yes, it’s white denim, but it just feels cooler to me. And when paired with a classic, breezy (and sleeveless) button front shirt it just made sense for a busy day. I found the skirt last year at JC Penney and it was well worth the $25, let me tell you. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth – plus some. It’s a classic skirt that will be a summer staple for many seasons to come!

Today’s Outfit:

Merona black sleeveless button front shirt: Target (recent)
White denim skirt: JC Penney (last year)
Aerosoles black wedge sandals: DSW (this season)

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Still Summer


8.14.15I am not one of those people who can think about Fall clothing in August. I live in Texas – and Fall here doesn’t even hint at making an appearance until late September. Sometimes October. I have, however seen several Fall/Winter 2015 season color palettes and I think I’m a fan. I found several examples on Pinterest and here’s just one:

Fall/Winter 2015 UC Fresh Take from Design Options forecasting company via Fashion Vignette blog

I can definitely see myself wearing most of these colors – and in fact already have pieces in these colors in my closet. I just might have to try some new combinations. In October. When it’s not 100 degrees.

Today’s Outfit:

Merona dotted knit tank: Target (two years ago)
Cropped stretch denim pants: Stein Mart (recent)
Mint green wedge sandals: Francesca’s (last year)

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Too Darn Hot


8.12.15I know you’ve only seen me in shorts a few times, but honestly on days when the temperature is over 100 what other choice is there? I could have worn a dress, but these denim shorts just needed to be worn. I opted for wedge sandals – flats just make my legs look short. Vanity. All is vanity.

Today’s Outfit:

Beige lace tank: Charming Charlie (last season)
Merona coral tank top: Target
Denizen stretch denim shorts: Target (last season)
Aerosoles brown wedge sandals: DSW (last year)

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Lunch Date


LW Fathers Letter BW-4

I love getting a mid-morning call from AH (Awesome Hubby) inviting me to lunch. It just makes my day so much better! I had errands to run while I was out, so I had to be as cool as possible in the 100+ degree heat. (My car thermometer read 106). Seriously this heat is ridiculous. I know at some point the cooler weather will arrive…

Today’s Outfit:

White Stag olive knit top: Walmart (recent)
Light khaki skirt: White House Black Market (2 years ago)
Aerosoles brown wedge sandals: DSW (last year)
Brown leather belt: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Workhorse


08-07-15

We have a winner! During my summer break I didn’t do much shopping. No time, and honestly no energy. However, on a recent trip to Walmart I did a quick run through the clothing department and stumbled on this great little knit top. It’s got a little bit of a “peasant” feel with some nice detailing around the neckline. It definitely fits my “cool and comfortable” criteria, and with the denim skirt it made and outfit that’s appropriate for just about any summer time activity.

Today’s Outfit:

Denim skirt: Old Navy (last summer)
White Stag blue knit top: Walmart (recent)
Brown wedge sandals: DSW (last year)
Brown leather belt: Coldwater Creek (2 years ago)

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Staying Cool


08-05-15

It’s. Hot. Seriously, we’ve been in triple digit heat for the last two weeks. Remember when I was complaining about the rain a few months ago. I knew this was coming. I was in denial. But here we are in August and I shouldn’t be surprised. So the key is wearing the coolest clothing possible. And since I only wear shorts occasionally these cropped khaki pants are a good option. The knit tank is wonderfully light and was comfortable all day. All in all a great outfit success.

Today’s Outfit:

Merona black knit tank: Target (recent)
Cropped khaki pants: The LOFT Outlet (last season)
Aerosoles black wedge sandals: DSW (this season)

Have a lovely, healthy day!
