Navy, Pink, and Crayon??

I know you have heard me say this before, but I LOVE my J Crew Minnie Pants. I have them in navy, cobalt, and pink. They are a staple for my closet. That being said - can you spot the newest addition to my navy pair? A certain someone - I will not mention names (my adorable 19 month old) - decided he wanted to color on Mommy's pants, well not so much as intentionally color, but he did not want to put the colors down and wanted me to pick up and the colors inevitably rubbed and marked my favorite pants. Hopefully the dry cleaners can get them out - otherwise I may cry, or at least have another sent overnight rush delivery. Yes I love them that much.

Pink Dress and Neutral Wedges

These are the wedges I picked up at Target from their Sam & Libby Collection. They are such a great addition to my shoe collection without having to spend a ton of money! I will get so much wear out of them this summer! Have you picked up anything from the Sam & Libby Collection yet? What are you eyeing?

Blue Shorts and Polka Dots - Brainstorming to real life

You may remember this brainstorming session were I was coming up with different ways to wear mint short. Well I finally bought some. Not so much mint as a soft blue, but they work in the same way. Here is my real life version of the outfit I came up with using items I already owned in my closet except for the new shorts of course.

Pink & Polka Dots - A Not So Perfect Outfit

Well it is back to work after a long weekend! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday! The Lord sure did bless us with a fun filled weekend!

So my DSLR is on its way back from the camera doctor and my sweet husband dropped my point and shoot this weekend so it has officially bit the dust. I am left with the picture taking ability of my cell phone until my DLSR arrives or I locate my point and shoot from like 10 years ago. Hopefully my camera will just come in soon! I sure do miss it! This outfit is one I actually wore to work a couple of weeks ago, but I never got around to posting pictures because I was totally satisfied with it. I think the sleeves are rolled up to high or something. I don't know, but I do know that I have completely lacked the confidence to post it because well I didn't think it was perfect. But I am not perfect neither will I ever be so I keep asking my self why would I not post these pictures all because I am undecided on the sleeve issue. Crazy right?!?! Well here they are. Do you do that as well? Struggle over posting something because you don't think it is perfect?

Black, White, and Pink Allover

I hope everyone has had a great weekend so far and with any luck you will be off today as well for Memorial Day! Nothing like a 3 day weekend! Do you have any special plans for today? I will be spending the day at the park with my kiddo and my nephews :-)

This is an outfit that I wore downtown this weekend for some boutique browsing! This shirt is a recent target find and I love it! It can easily be worn over my J Crew Minnie Pants or could even be tucked into a pencil skirt for work. How would you wear this shirt?

I found this shirt and these shoes on a recent shopping trip to Target. I stumbled across their Sam & Libby shoe collection and let me tell you ---- I want them ALL! I just love them. I picked up 3 pairs! I know, I know... but at under $35 bucks each they were practically giving them away! I ended up getting the ballet flats shown here, a pair of wedges, and a pair of flat sandals. I can't wait to show them all to you guys!

Soft Blue and White

I love this shirt. It is amazingly comfortable and the fit is perfect. It can be tucked into a pencil skirt or worn over skinny trousers like I did here. The color is beautiful as well. This was my favorite color in high school (some 11 years ago now!) and I haven't really bought a lot of clothing items in this color in my adult life. When I spotted this top at Ann Taylor I immediately snatched it up and knew it would be mine. Good thing it was on a really good sale huh!

Blue Shorts and Dark Chambray

I wore this running errands this weekend. I took my baby sister who is 10 and my baby boy out for some toy and grocery shopping. I am trying to force myself to incorporate more shorts into my summer wardrobe. I have never liked my legs so it is hard for me to step out in public in shorts like this, but I am slowly getting over my fear!

Matching Blue Plaid

When I bought this shirt I envisioned it with skinny jeans and boots. I know, I know. Typical southern girl attire right? Well, I found this cardigan in my closet that has never been worn because it is a little too big for me but the color matched perfectly so I thought I would give it a try. After layering it over the button down it is still a bit too big, but it fit much better than on its on so I went with it anyway. I also had a little helper in taking my pictures who was also wearing a variation of blue plaid.

A T-Shirt Dress and Weekend Full of Memories

This dress is AMAZING! I felt like I was wondering around town in my PJ's all day. I mean could it be any better? Saturday was such a fun day and we made so many wonderful memories. Alex, Peyton, and I got up early and ran a 5k. We had so much fun. Alex placed 3rd in his age group and Peyton (pushed by me in a stroller) placed 2nd in his group. I didn't place (didn't even come close!), but I did finish and went fast enough to get Peyton 2nd place and that was all that mattered to me! After the race, we went out for a late lunch and a little shopping. I got some amazing pieces on this shopping trip that I can't wait to share with you!

Distressed Skinnies, Stripes, and Red Shoes

This is something I wore over the weekend! Sometimes a girl just needs a good pair of distressed jeans!

How do you wear distressed denim?

How Much Nude is Too Much?

When Elegance & Mommyhood asked me to come up with a birthday outfit, I was beyond excited. Our birthdays are pretty close together so it gave me an opportunity to break out the original outfit I had planned to wear until it started pouring down rain. I didn't realize how closely this dress matched my skin tone until I saw these pictures and WOW does it ever match my skin tone. So, how much nude is too much nude? What is your opinion on this overall look? Do you think it would look better if the dress was deeper or lighter than my skin tone or do you like it as is?

A Shorts Suit - Testing My Comfort Zone



One of the things I love about blogging is that it constantly pushes me to get out of my comfort zone. Well let me tell you - shorts are way out of my comfort zone. This is the second post I have done wearing shorts so I am slowly getting there! Baby steps right?!?!
 
Would you wear a shorts suit?

Sequins and Studs

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! I know I am! I spent all day yesterday with my sweet baby boy which is a rare occasion because we are always so busy! We took a nap together, went on a late afternoon shopping adventure, and when Alex got home from work we went over to a friends house to visit! Such a great Saturday! I am ready for a great Church service today and to give thanks to God for all the wonderful things He has blessed me with.

A Cool Alabama Day and An Ulta Gift Card Giveaway

Happy Saturday Everyone! So these photos were actually taken a month or so ago, but I never go around to posting them. Well today it is rainy out, my DSLR is still at the camera doctor, and my 18 month old and I are enjoying a lazy day lounging around so I figured it was as good of a day as any to break them out. We may run some errands later and I will probably wear this same outfit because it is pretty cool out today. This sweater is light and airy making it perfect for a day like today.

Navy, White, and Lime Green and a Giveaway!

I bought this cardigan on a whim the other day and was standing in my closet determined to wear it. As I stood there, I was drawn to this navy lace shirt. Navy and white is such as classic combination, and I thought it would hold up well next to the brightness of the cardigan. How would you wear this cardigan?

Inspired My Style Link Up - The Movie Greece

I love the simplicity of this outfit. Simple boyfriend jeans, t-shirt, jacket, flats and of course red lips. I mean it doesn't get easier than that. This combination could be done in so many ways and so easily transformed because you can mix and match so many different accessories to change the feel of it. I mean what would go with these classic pieces? Here I took the movie Greece for inspiration and ran with it. Have you seen Greece? It is such a great movie! One of my all time favorites!

Leather, Chambray, and Snakeskin

This is the outfit I had originally planned to wear out for my birthday last Saturday, but since it was raining I quickly jumped on the chance to wear my new Hunter Boots (see here for the post!). I didn't want to go overly sexy, yet I really wanted to wear this leather skirt. I think adding the chambray top
tones down the sexiness of the leather. What is your favorite way to tone down a sexy piece?
