Sunday….why do you show up so fast??? ‘Twas a busy weekend!! Little man (aka Aidan) had basketball and all the running around necessary to go to Hubs Christmas party. 

First…basketball !This is week #2 of the Upward season. This year…he is a King (like the Sacremento Kings).  He had a great game…puts some points on the board and played some DE-fense!!! We are so proud of him! He loves this sport just as much as Julian!

What did I wear, you ask?  Thanks for asking…..Lindsay kimono (LuLaroe)// “Go Jesus, It’s Your Birthday”! Tee (Prep Obsessed)//Red Leggings (LuLaroe)//White Slip on Chuck Taylors (Zappos)//Pearl necklace (Loft)

I can’t say enough about this outfit. Everything about it I LOVE– from the buttery soft leggings to the statement shirt to the kimono. 

The Lindsay is my newest LuLaroe purchase/obsession.  It’s thin enough to not be hot on warm days but thick enough to be warm on cool days. Want a better pic??See???? Isn’t she precious? 

“Wife.Mom.BOSS” shirt ({a}Haley Boutique)//Black leggings (LuLaroe)

If you’ve been reading, then you KNOW our resident Petite Gal is my/ our LuLaroe GirlBOSS! (FB: LuLaroe ~ Monica Vignier)

After basketball and errands, it was time to get ready for Hubs company Christmas party. Truth be told, I look forward to this every year because outside of this….I don’t really have an occasion to dress up! #newdress

Lace Capped dress -Vintage Champagne (J.Crew Factory)//Fioni Jubilee Platform Pump (Payless)//Gold Statement necklace (Charming Charlie)

Close up??

I can’t say enough about this dress!! I will say that I can add this dress to my “What they WANTED…What they GOT..” segment that I want to continue to build. Here’s the story- I ordered this online in petite in my size. Well…I went on a limb because I was in love when I saw it online. When I received it in the mail…I tried it on…..BOOB SMOOSHER!   Do you see it??? I was bummed!!! Here I found the perfect dress and it fit every where but the upper part! (Damn broad back!! Damn you swimming and CrossFit for contributing!). I was able to exchange the dress at my local store, which I didn’t know we had, and get the regular size. Yes petite ladies….I went NON PETITE because it didn’t fit correctly. 😱. Any way, What they WANTED for the dress (originally online) was $108….What they GOT (online) was $54.  But wait…there’s more! Upon my exchange, the price went down more, so What they WANTED was $108…What they GOT was $43! SCORE!
I was pretty pleased with my outfit selections this Sunday! That’s a first….

Until next week, my gals! Happy Sunday and thanks for reading! ❤️

Hello every body!!  Another Sunday is here and more clothes to share! Our fearless petite gal/ fashion idol/ LuLaroe consultant is still in queue, waiting for the call to get her LuLaroe inventory. Keep those prayers coming that she will get her stuff soon! I can’t wait and I hope that you are excited to experience all that is LuLaroe.  

If you’ve been reading, you have been witnessing my boring transformation from my monotone colored clothing to LuLaHellYeah colors and patterns. My style of clothing hasn’t necessarily changed much (because I know what works for me and what doesn’t) but my fear of patterns has definitely changed! Let’s take a walk….

Cassie Arrow skirt (LuLaroe) // Yellow top (NY & Co ) // Black ballet flats (Payless)

My likes:

  • Color. Yellow! What can I say about you? I’ve been fearful of this color for quite sometime! I see it on other people and think it looks great and when I get it to me…no me gusta! But this skirt made me want to give it another shot! I’m glad I did…because I love it!
  • Pattern. How could you not like the arrow pattern? This was a first for me and I’m glad that I picked it! I believe petite gal and I will be #twinning at some point because she has the same Cassie!! 

My dislikes:

  • Shoes! Ugh…I can’t say enough about my shoes! I buy way too many clothing items and don’t even think about what shoes I may (more like don’t) have! I have incorporated more flats but I have just the basic.  And these shoes really bring this outfit down….! Work in progress, folks! Stay with me!!


Amelia (LuLaroe) 

This was a two LLR outfit week. I really don’t know why I said that because there have been weeks with more than 2 outfits  a week. Hell…there have been some weeks when I have bought more than 2 LLR pieces in a week!! 

My likes:

  • Color. You can’t really tell from this picture, but it’s navy blue with a white pattern.  Anything nautical looking is fine in my book! 
  • Dress. If there has EVER been a dress/outfit that I am crazy about, it’s THIS dress! I went out on a limb and wore this dress with my Chuck Taylor’s!! (Truth be told…to work!!😁). 

Let’s see what this week holds for me! 

If you haven’t found our petite gal, look for her:

Happy Sunday and Thanks for reading!❤️

School starts in 1 week, y’all!! Here in the Sunshine State…August 10th is the day!! But until D Day begins, let’s talk clothes! 

Floral dress (NY & Co) // Teal ballet flats (Payless)

I think this dress is from Eva Mendez’s collection at NY & Company.  I’ve been hesitant to purchase much from them because their sizes have changed (although they claim they haven’t!).  

My likes:

  • Pattern.  The floral pattern is not too overbearing. The colors are perfect for spring and summer.  I’m not a floral person, but I sure do love this pattern!
  • Dress. The length of this dress looked great on the model online. When i received it, I wasn’t too sure how it was going to look on me. You know the petite lady that is NOT thin like a model!! 

My dislikes:

  • Material. Let me say, this dress is very light weight which I love living in Florida. Just becareful because it may be so light, it has the potential of being see through. I’ll still wear it….just cover up (or under).

Thanks for reading and Happy Sunday!❤️

Today is a good day!! J came home from camp in Georgia last night/early this morning.  We missed him and so glad for his safe return! I will say that I wasn’t so happy to see/smell the laundry that found its way home too! Imagine this…Georgia, wet,sweat and teenage BOY…in a bag…for 11 hours! OMG!  What a wake up call this morning when I walked through the garage on the way out this morning! 😝 #imUP

Let’s see what I have today…

Floral dress (Loft)

My likes:

  • The pattern. Again, out of the box on this one. It’s so girlie and made me feel all pretty…so NOT me! 😂
  • The style. I seem to do well with A line style dresses/skirts. And they really like the petite frame. 

My dislikes:

  • The color. You can’t tell by the picture, but it’s navy blue and white.    I love this combo, but I would have preferred some tropical colors for this dress. But notice… I apparently didn’t dislike it THAT much that I put it back on the rack!!!😂

I’m going to start a section called “What they WANTED/What they GOT”.  People know I like to buy stuff on sale! I don’t like paying full price for clothes although I do.  I like the thrill of getting as steal on clothes…I mean…who doesn’t,right??

For this dress…what they WANTED was something like $60 or so, what they GOT was $15! See??? Fun, right???

Today I decided to break in a new Lularoe dress. If you’ve been reading, you probably remember that Lularoe is the new clothing obsession for me! Ladies, meet….

…..Julia!!!  Isn’t she cute??? 

 I chose to wear her a little differently because I don’t have the right shoes for her…
See!!?!? I belted the dress and pulled it over to make it look like a separate top and skirt versus a full dress. I accented with my Chucks because they go with everything and can go everywhere! The kimono cover was a last minute decision because I was really a little uncomfortable .

My likes:

  • Versatility. This dress can be worn a few ways, as above (with or without a belt) or like this….
  • Fabric. This company has the most giving fabrics. This is a form fitting dress but it doesn’t feel like I’m a stuffed sausage!!
  • Pattern. I really love the colors in this dress! I don’t usually do florals but it has enough that doesn’t make me feel like a doily.


My dislikes:

  • I have a gut! Well…it ain’t the dress’ fault!! This was really out of my zone in terms of fit. I’m not quite sure I would wear it without a kimono or a sweater tied around my waist. I’m not body confident enough to go without an accessory. 

What do you think??

Happy Sunday and thanks for reading!❤️

Happy Sunday!! Busy day today, with basketball and packing J for camp…again!  This is the first non basketball camp this summer. And truth be told…last one for the summer! School starts August 10th!!! Where has the summer gone???

Last week, I shared some Lularoe outfits. Let me say, I’d love to share some more!!

I went to pick up my sister’s Cassie that I bought for her. I’ve been wanting to try another dress and was able to when I got there. Ladies….meet Amelia!

It’s she PRECIOUS!?!??

My likes:

  • The pattern. I tell you, the best thing about finding this company (outside of the comfort of the clothes) are the patterns! I have really been able to step…no…JUMP out of the box that I am in! You know…black, white, grey and all in between! Now I am forced to see other colors!! 😂
  • Pockets. If you’ve been reading you know a few things-stripes, polka dots, and POCKETS! This girl has pockets!!! #nuffsaid
  • Size. I suggest, as well as my consultant (you like that…MY consultant!!) to try on the dress/skirts you like because the fabric/patten may or may not be stretchy. This dress needed to be in XS because of the material and it was perfect!! I love everything about this dress! The petite girl look great in this A line cut! Go get one!!!

My dislikes:

  • One. I only own one! But won’t be that way for long!! 😂

Searching for something else online, I came across a lovely dress that was my favorite combo…cute and cheap!

Patterned pocket dress (Lemon Nectar from Groop dealz)

My likes:

  • The color. It’s like a teal, which I like! I don’t own anything in this color.
  • The pockets. That’s all.
  • The cap sleeves. This look honestly make you look like you have the FLOTUS’ athletic arms! YES! I’ve always been a fan of cap sleeves and they are a great complement to the petite gals frame.

My dislikes:

  • One. More colors PLEASE!!!

I tell ya….for the first time in a long time, I am truly loving my clothes! I’ve always liked my clothes, but I am really feeling what I’m selecting lately. Probably because I’m actually in some color!!! 😂. And 44 has me understanding what works for my petite body (and gut!) and what doesn’t! The rule I continually live by, including picking my clothes:

Just because you CAN, doesn’t mean you SHOULD!!

Thanks for reading and Happy Sunday!❤️

Petite Fashion Friday (July 15)

Hi everyone!  This week has really flown by.  I am still not able to understand how the summer (at least for the kiddos) is almost half over).  School will be back in session before I know it.  But, in a way, that’s a good thing, because this summer has been particularly busy.  And extremely hot.  Yesterday it was like 98 degrees.  I felt so bad for my kids, who were suffering through soccer practice in that hot muggy heat, whilst I enjoyed the A/C in my car.  #badmom

Enough of my whining though.  This week I want to share a few work outfits and a few play outfits.  Please excuse my “summer hair,” AKA my “I am not going to even bother flat ironing until September hair!

Office Attire:

img_2418

I am really loving this outfit for a “casual summer” office look – it really looks and feels sooo summery.  The skirt (size 0P) is from Loft, maybe 2-3 years ago.  I picked it out today because I wanted to do something a little different than my normal pencil skirt uniform.  Yeah, the skirt is a tad roomy, but with the white blouse (size XXSP), also from Loft, tucked in, everything fits very nicely. To complete the look, I wore a pair of wine-colored heels from BCBG and a grey and bronze necklace from H&M that I absolutely adore!

img_2217I also really love this outfit i wore to the office.  Yes, it is a navy blue pencil skirt (Loft, size 0P) paired with a sleeveless blouse (Halogen, size XSP, from Trunk #2 Part 2), but since it is casual summer for the office until September, I went a little crazy with my shoes to make this work “uniform” a bit more interesting.  The belt is a gold sparkly belt that I bought from Target 4 or 5 years ago, and the blur and white plaid shoes are from Nordstrom Rack.  

 

 

 

Casual Attire:

On this day, I wore #LuLaRoe #Leggings right into the rotation. These are OS (one size), which, while comfy, are a tad big for this petite gal.  It may be TMI, but they are a tad roomy in the crotch area, and I had to pull them up way above my waist (that the bump to the right of this picture pulled the leggings up to). So, I will probably stick to the tween size for leggings.  The fit much better.

But, fit aside, you can’t really beat this print, blue and yellow, with a few red accents as well (which, sadly, are mostly on the back of these leggings).  And to bring out the red (and to really get into color wheel dressing), I wore a red tank top from Old Navy and gold leather flip flops from Banana Republic.  This really was a great outfit to wear on a day when I had to take my kids to morning swim practice, camps, and then soccer practice in the afternoon.

And here is another outfit feature something from #LuLaRoe!  This is the #ClassicTee (size XXS).  I love these tees because they are comfy and soooo soft. And yes, they are a oversized, but there are so many fun ways to tie these tees.  This classic tee was a must-buy because of my favorite colors – maize and blue – GO MICHIGAN!)!  i PAIRED THIS TEE WITH A PAIR OF J.Crew Factory skinny jeans, beige thong sandals from Nine West, and a bauble necklace in yellow, teal, and purple from Charming Charlie.  This was the perfect outfit for a day outside with the kids.

 

 

And that is it for this week!  I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!!

How do???  Another week has flown by once again!!! This week’s share is brought to you by my new clothing obsession…Lularoe!!! 

No…I don’t sell it. This post isn’t sponsored by it.  But, I sure do BUY IT!! 

Lord….where do I begin?!?!?!!?

My first purchase was an adorable skirt, Azure, for our HHI vacay and 4th of July. I didn’t have anything cute to wear, and I stumbled acrossed a cute skirt.  My sister has a few friends that are consultants, so it was easy to buy and she was able to bring it to me when she arrived in HHI. 

I wish could see how comfortable this skirt is!! 

My likes:

  • Comfort. Well, you know I love comfort and I hit the jackpot with this one!
  • Color/pattern. I have really stepped out of the box on the pattern. I’m not usually in anything red, but there you have it!
  • Versitile. This skirt can be worn so many ways. I chose to wear it high waisted like the top left picture.  I haven’t had the opportunity to try the others…yet! 😉
    Source: Lularoe Jeanna Hilton VIP (one of the Consultants I have purchased from!!)

My dislikes:

  • Size. I purchased the medium which is for 6-8. I am a 6, so that’s a no brainer on the correct size.  But with this skirt, I could have (really should have) gone with the small. It would have fit better! I still love it, but I am going to “play” with how to make it better looking on me. This length looks good on the petite gal. It would probably look a wee better with heels. 

Since I was so in love with that skirt, off I went to find something else when I got home from HHI.   I found a Cassie that I just had to have!


My likes:

  • Color/Pattern. Seriously….how can you NOT love these colors and the floral pattern?? I would have picked a better top, but I isn’t really have a thing except white. You can mix and match patterns, which I am going to try soon; just have to find the right mix.
  • Size. Pencil skirts work well on the petite frame. This skirt has the “yoga” band on the top, so it can hide the/ my Mom belly! 😉. And….I selected the correct size on this skirt! 

My dislikes:

  • Not a DAMN thing!!! 

If you haven’t heard of or haven’t had a chance to shop Lularoe, as my BIL would say, “You owe it to yourself” to try!  The website can help you find a consultant near you.  The pieces I have purchased have been friends of my sister’s in Haymarket (VA).  It’s fine because items are shipped to your house.  I just found a local consultant here in Valrico, FL. I haven’t decided if that’s a good or bad thing!😂. Honestly, it’s good because I can try on a piece that I am obsessing over. But….it’s bad because she’s local and I can get my hands on pieces all too quickly! 

Have you heard of Lularoe? What are your likes/dislikes? I’ve already found my next piece!!!  

Happy Sunday and thanks for reading!❤️
