Fashion Friday: Cobalt & Minty Checks

Happy Friday!! It’s been another busy, long week for me and I’m so glad to see the weekend.

Mint Checks

Gingham shirt, Sweater & Cobalt Jeans – Thrifted, Statement Necklace – Julep, Ankle Boots – old

I had a completely different outfit picked out for today, but somehow this outfit put itself together last night and I couldn’t wait to wear it today! Mint and cobalt have been a big hit the past few of years. I tried the look a couple of times before here on the blog, but I think today’s outfit is my favorite so far. Plus I altered my pants, can you tell they’re no longer a version of weird too short – boot cut! I hated the way they looked and kept telling myself I was going to fix them, well I finally did. Maybe a DIY how-to is in order for this weekend!


Spring is almost here and I’ve been seeing checks and gingham pop up everywhere; on blogs, the runway and on the street. I thrifted this sweater in the fall while looking for something minty, the gingham shirt and cobalt jeans were also thrifted over a year ago.

Casual Fashion Friday: I’ve got the Blues

It’s Friday!! And snowing!!! I’m still wishing for spring, though!

I've got the Blues!

Blouse – Talbots, Cardigan – Target & Jeans – All Thrifted, Boots – Easy Spirit

I thought I’d end the week on a blue note. After getting dressed this morning Caveman said, “Wow honey, those blues look really good on you!”. Thanks sweetie!!! I love it when my man thinks I look good, for me that’s what its all about. Lookin’ good for him and representing our family well.


And I was photo-bombed again, so naturally this is how I attempted to act casual! 😉 Have a happy weekend all!

Fashion Friday: Emerald Aztec

Happy Friday Everyone!! I’m so looking forward to the weekend, seriously – when am I not? 😉

Emerald Aztec

Jacket & Corduroys – Thrifted, Top – Target, Statement Necklace – Julep, Boots – Easy Spirit

This cropped Aztec print jacket is one of my favorite thrift finds from a month ago (we’re going again this weekend and I can’t wait!!!). It’s really thick and warm but I’ve had trouble styling it. I’ve actually worn it one other time this month in a similar fashion, but ended up hating the way it looked. Today I styled it with this green knit top I found a Target recently for $3 and my winter white Ann Taylor corduroys. The emerald green brings out the subtle olive green in the jacket and gives the outfit an overall pop of color.


Any suggestions or tips you would like to pass along would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great weekend! I’m looking forward to the warmer weather and a hike or two.

Fashion Friday: Red & Pink

I love the Red & Pink look! I know I’ve worn my fair share of these colors over the past few weeks but the red & pink combo just happens to be the theme for today ‘s Friday’s Fancies too!


While searching Pinterest the other day I came across this Pin and knew I wanted to recreate it!


What do you think did I pull it off? In my opinion I think I got the general idea, just needed a little more arm candy! 😉


Hope everyone has a great long weekend! I’m linking up with these beauties today!

National Wear Red Day 2013


The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement encourages people to go red on Friday, February 1 in celebration of the 10th anniversary of National Wear Red Day.

Go Red

In honor of National Wear Red Day I’m showing my support and wearing red today! Actually I plan to wear something red or pink from now until February 14th in honor of the American Heart Association’s campaign this month and Valentines Day!!


Chambray Dress, Tights & Necklace – Target, Sweater – JCP, Boots – Amazon

As a busy wife and mother I try to live an active, healthy lifestyle; but I know there is always room for improvement. Visit the Go Red for Women webpage to learn more about subtle changes or big changes you can make in your daily life in defense against heart disease.


This has been my go-to red sweater for ages. It is the perfect berry, bright red and goes with just about anything. These thick sweater tights were just the thing today too, because it is so cold!


I’m also linking up with these lovely ladies on this beautiful Friday! Head on over and check them out! If you’re here from one of the link ups or already a follower, thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you all have a great weekend!
