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!!

WIWW: Navy & Turquoise

MintNavy2_sm, Navy, Turquoise, Polka Dot, Gray

Sweater, Capri’s, Scarf/Belt – Thrifted, Pumps – Zapoos

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!

Monday, Monday: Transitioning Winter Pants

How do you transition your darker winter pants? Do you pack them away as soon as spring weather hits?

I bought these dressy, textured, burgundy trousers at Target back in the fall. I love the fit of these pants and although I might not wear them all throughout the summer I’m definitely not ready to pack them away just yet.

Sweater – ?(old), Trousers  – Target, Sandals – Payless

To incorporate them into my spring wardrobe I added a cute pink sweater, some pearls and black heeled sandals with hot pink toes. I kept my makeup nice and pink too! The pink monochrome looks makes me feel especially girly!

I hope everyone has a great Monday! Although it was another rainy and colder weekend around these parts, I have to say it was a good one! We stayed indoors mostly but we did take a quick trip to Home Depot so I could pick up some indoor plants and fresh dirt. Caveboy had fun searching for worms, his new favorite past-time!

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.

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!
