WIWW: Denim & Sunnies

Happy Hump Day!!! This week is flying by at record speed! Whew, I can hardly keep up!

Denim Jacket, White Button Up, Sunnies

Denim Jacket – Eddie Bauer, Button-Up & Capri’s – JCP, Loafer Wedges – Target, Beads – Grandmother, Bag – SAK (Thrifted), Sunnies – RayBan

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!


Hope everyone is having a great week!!

Fashion Friday: Black Monochrome & the Flu!

Ah Friday, you have never looked sweeter! I’m not gonna lie, this has been a rough week. I started the week with a cough and was rendered flat on my back, unable to move within 24 hours! I haven’t been sick like that since I was a kid! I’m feeling better today and actually made it to work early too!


Sweater & Cords – JCP, Scarf – Thrifted

Amazingly, I remembered to photograph this outfit before the worst of the illness hit. Because I was feeling so poorly I wanted something warm & cozy yet still looked put together enough to pass for office wear.

I’ve gotten lots of wear out of this snake print scarf I thrifted for $1. At one point I had the scarf tied in a loose bow; but it was competing with the cowl neck of the sweater, so instead I went with it looped around my neck a few times instead. Also it was cold and windy that day, that’s why you see my hair flying around.


Linking up with these beauties today!

EBEW: Back-to-School

I am finally going to make it into another Everybody Everywear link up!! Yahoo!! I’ve missed the past few months just because I was too busy and only remembered after it was too late! So September’s theme is only fitting – Back-to-School!

EBEW - Back To School

I have to admit, this one was initially kinda hard but after searching around Pinterest (to the rescue!) I was able to up with an outfit I really liked!

Blazer & Bracelet – Target, Blouse – Thrifted, Purse & Jeans – JCP, Sandals – Merrell via Mom!

Colored Blazers are everywhere right now & we’ve actually been having some cooler temps so this was a perfect choice for today!

Even though my blazer is white, that is still a color and like most other bloggers, I don’t buy into the “no white after Labor Day” fashion rule!

WIWW: Floral Capris

Ah, Wednesday! I’m so glad to see you! Amazingly August has simultaneously flown/drug by, right along with this summer!


Sweater – JCP; Floral Capri’s – Chadwicks; Sandals – Payless

Although I’ve had these Capri’s for almost 10 years, they still look great and are trendy this year! I’ve always enjoyed wearing them, they fit great and are fairly versatile too. I’ve tried them a couple of different ways this summer and I think my favorite look was last seen here.

I’m linking up with these lovely ladies again this Wednesday!

EBEW: Monochrome – White

Sweater – Thrifted, Capri’s – Target; Purse – JCP; Sandals – old

Even though I didn’t get my submission onto the site, I did take my photo for my monochrome outfit the other evening. I’ve seen quite a few white outfits with darker brown leather accessories and thought I would attempt to recreate the look.

I’m still attempting to get back into my blogging routine but work has been hectic lately and having a kindle app on my phone isn’t helping to slow down the book consumption either! LOL, hope you all are having a great week.
