I picked up this striped summer-sweater at Target the other day for $5!! I love finding stuff in the Target clearance racks or their $1 section! I went with the small because the medium was just huge and didn’t fit right. Although with all the walking and running I’ve been doing lately, I’ve lost some weight and all my clothes are fitting better!
Please forgive the frizzy hair, when I left there were some loose curls, but overall my hair was mostly straight! This humidity is killer these days and its been raining and raining, come on fall!!
Just a quick pop-in today to let you know that Marion announced this month’s Trend of the Month Challenge!
OK, I’m sure this is not a shock to any of you since you have never seen me wear a maxi here on the old blog, BUT I don’t actually own a Maxi anything! Not a skirt or dress! I did however cut out a pattern for a maxi dress I’ve had for years, a few months back in some beautiful fabric. So now all I need to do is finish it! Maybe I’ll get in some late night sewing this weekend?? Here’s hoping cause I’d really like to link up next week with my new maxi dress!
Do you have a Maxi and want to show it off too? Here’s How It Works…IT’S AS EASY AS 1 – 2 – 3!:
1) In the middle of every month, Marion announces a new trend that is either here or forthcoming. You’ll have 1 week to pull together a style and take photos.
2) When the date arrives, simply link-up your specific post using the link widget Marion provides on Marionberry Style. This MUST be a NEW post…please don’t link old blog posts.
Despite the look of these photos the weather has warmed up here and it’s been nice and bright lately. It seems I’m never without my RayBan Aviators. I love these sunnies! I originally bought them for Caveman, but they ended up too small for him so I got to keep them instead!
When I was a little girl RayBan Aviators were all my Dad wore and I always wanted a pair of my own. I’ve had a pair or two over the years but always ended up losing them somehow. I’m cherishing these and many other things now that I’m older!
Our summer is flying by & yes, I know its only begun; but I can’t believe it’s June already! Bible School is this week at our church and we’re helping out each night. It’s making for some very long days for all of us! These sunnies also help hide the tired looking eyes too!
I took these photos about a month ago using my Cannon EOS Rebel XT (yes I would love to upgrade my camera) & my “nifty fifty” lens, but completely forgot to post them. Since I’m planning to scale back on my blogging, due to my hectic summer schedule, maybe I’ll continue this trend!
I really enjoyed putting this outfit together. I’ve been adding this polka dot scarf/belt to lots of outfits lately. It just adds a little interest to an otherwise simple outfit. Its office friendly, but still trendy enough for me.
I tried to keep my makeup simple but added a red lip. Oh, I might have gone a little crazy with the poses too!
Y’all know I love a good fashion challenge, so when I read about the Coast 2 Coast Beauties announcement for today’s #CoasttoCoastChallenge, “Plain white tee” and this Friday’s White-Tee fashion challenge over at Real Girl Glam, I knew I would play along!
Tweed Jacket – old, White Tee – Target, Slacks – JCP (old), Sandals – Payless, SAK bag – Thrifted
I needed a quick outfit this morning, so pairing a plain white tee with this tweed blazer (I just happened to find at the back of my closet!) and navy slacks was a no brainer! I added a few pearls, my white purse and some white sandals to finish out the look.
I kept my makeup natural looking and added MARK. pink lipstick. I’m still rocking my blue toes this week too!!
Summer is here in full force and I’m feeling it! This summer is going to be an especially busy one for me so I’m just going to go ahead and let you know now that I will probably only be blogging outfits once a week instead of my regular three. Thank you all for understanding and I hope you get out there and enjoy your long holiday weekend!
