Well, it has been a minute or two since I’ve posted here. I’ve been not enthusiastic about anything I have been wearing lately. Nothing worthy of posting…. and I’ve said this before… I really don’t want to share anything that I am really not feeling. But maybe I should just post any way because maybe some one will get something from it. I know I am inspired by others…. Ehh….who knows, we’ll see…
Comfort. Man…are these leggings comfortable. I honestly don’t think I have owned anything this comfortable in.my.life!
Pattern. I was very skeptical about this pattern, but I like the way it looks. I won in from a consultant contest and I got to pick the leggings. Totally out of my comfort zone, but I love them. And…hey…Chuck Taylor’s make everything better!!
Not an DAMN thing! Oh wait….that I don’t own MORE! #workingonit 😂
Lace skirt (Ross) // “Merci” T-shirt (Old Navy)
Lace. I like the lace overlay on this skirt. You can dress this up or down. #winning
Tee. Who doesn’t love a t-shirt that says SOMETHING???
There you have it, ladies! I’m working on getting some more outfits, as I feel like I’m in a rut!
Thanks for sticking with me and reading! Happy Sunday! ❤️
Hey there bloggers! This is a birthday Share! Last Wednesday, I made it to 44! When did THAT happen?? I still feel like I’m that stupid, silly 21 year old! I was gonna lie and say 18 year old but that was a STREEEEEEETCH! 😂
Black ankle pants (Ross)// White shirt (Old Navy-my FAV!!) // Chelsea Cardigan with Lace Overlay (New York & Company)// Teal Ballet Flats (Payless)
My mom bought this sweater for me for my birthday. This is another one (of many) of the pieces that my mom purchased that I love! Thanks, Mom!❤️
For dinner, this weekend’s birthday celebration dinner at Haven (Tampa,FL)
Lace dress // Nude Sandals- Nine West (Ross)
I’m embarrassed to say that I can not remember if I bought his dress from one of the two online boutiques I like…Laurel’s Closet or The Ikat Elephant Boutique. Then I remembered….I bought is from ANOTHER boutique I forgot to mention…Flaunt Boutique!!! When I first received the dress and tried it on, I felt like a busted can of biscuits! Like I was stuffed in it and had no business wearing it!! I’ve lost a few inches since the challenge and it fit! Like not barely fit, but FIT! I’ll take that!!
What do you think??
Thanks for reading (and sharing my birthday with me ) and have a great Sunday!! ❤️
It may be a little shorter than I am used to, but I survived.
It is a little thin..*old lady alert*…wear a slip!
I ordered the dress online and I am very happy with the purchase. I’m usually hesitant about buying dresses online because the models are all tall and slim. I’m not sure what it will look like on petite me. I have to say shift dresses seem to do well for the (young) petite gal. Invest in one/some if you haven’t already!!!
Happy Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day from this Mom
Julian (in the red) and Aidan (in the gray) with me and Hubs.
Weekends sure do go fast! Never seems like there is enough time do get things done!
This week I didn’t really stray from the norm in terms of my clothes. It’s funny how since I started doing these share posts, I never realized how much I wear the same thing! But ya like what ya like, huh?? 😉
I was able finally able to wear a top that I bought at my sister’s during our visit for Turkey Day…
Navy blue striped top (J Crew Mercantile) // White Pixie Chinos ( Old Navy )// Glitter Sam & Libby (DSW)
A closer look of the top for you…
The STRIPES of course! I can’t get enough of them!!!
The price! This shirt was on sale and I end up getting it for like $15. For J Crew ANYTHING….that’s great!!
It only came in this one color!!!
Not really sure what else I am going to wear with it…but I’m excited to be on the hunt for it! Red pants? Skinny jeans? Blue pants? Possibilities are endless!
Another outfit I was crushing on this week..
Sweet Rain top (Ross)// Modern Kick crop in Morning Aqua (Loft)//Nine West studded flats (Ross; similar)
These pants! Again, I have stepped out of my comfort zone in terms of color. I have owned shirts in this color but never pants. I love it!
The shirt had the same color as the pants. I love when outfits just fall together because I bought the shirt well before I bought the pants.
I’m not a fan of how these shoes look on me. I really like them and I’ve seen them on other people. I was psyched when I found them but I honestly don’t feel them on me. #meh
Another Sunday has come and gone again. Hope you had a great weekend and thanks for reading! ❤️
Seems like the weeks are going by fast!!! I am secretly fearing that my stuff isn’t interesting like my sisters, so please don’t feel afraid to tell me what you think! I’m all about constructive criticism,folks!!
This week I wanted to show you a favorite pair of pants I own. I bought them about 3 years ago at Ross. I was hesitant for a few reasons…
I bought them at the height of the skinny jeans outbreak and I wasn’t quite sure I could pull them off
The color! As much as I loved the color, I wasn’t sure I could pull off wearing a pair of colored pants. And…it’s out of my comfort “black-white-grey” zone.
So, here you go…
Nine West Vintage America skinny jeans (Ross)// Daniel Rainn tunic (Nordstrom Rack) // Chocolate Blazer (NY&Co circa 2006) // Boots (Payless; similar)
Here’s the top without the jacket…
This is probably one of the first petite tops I have purchased. I have to say that I was surprised it fit me so well! This petite girl just might have to branch out of the “regular” world and try some petites!
My likes: The top has a pattern that is pretty! I didn’t realize that I had the pants to go with it!
My dislikes: Nothing! I really love everything about this outfit!
I tried these pants with another patterned top (Operation “Get Angie some Patterns” in her life!). Again, the nerves had me worrying I could do this! Like “How DARE I try to be cute with these patterns???”.
It has been raining since yesterday, so I have been feeling pretty blah. And couple that with working from home today and I was feelin pretty uninspired in the fashion department. Truthfully, after getting everyone ready for school because the hubs had to leave the house at 7, I just wanted to go back to bed. But I knew I couldn’t let myself down – Operation Clean Out My Closet Day 4 awaited me. So, into the closet I went looking for something unworn or barely-ever worn.
I settled on a pair of pink Mossimo skinny pants (size 1) that I bought from Target in 2013. These were the first skinny pants that I ever bought. Back then, I was all about the bootcut jeans, and was totally skeptical about the whole skinny jean “fad.” But I have only worn them a few times in the past 3 years. And I haven’t worn them at all this year. Easy.
The pink and grey tank top (XS) I am wearing is from Old Navy, which I think I bought it in 2011 or so. Pretty old. I haven’t worn this tank top in a few years, and the last time was probably with these pants, so it’s perfect for the challenge. And the grey mohair cardigan I’m wearing is from Marshall’s or Ross, made by Current Affair (S), which I probably bought in 2011 or 2012. I used to wear it a lot, but it’s really itchy unless you’re wearing it in the winter with a long sleeve shirt. So, it normally only comes out when it’s cold outside. And I haven’t worn it at all this year. Piece of cake.
The sneakers are from New York & Co. My mom bought them for me for Christmas. I probably would have never picked these out for myself, mostly because I don’t wear sneakers, especially not slide-on ones, unless I am doing the dreaded running. Or going to a theme park. But these sneakers with those sequins are pretty cute. So, into the rotation they go.
