Dressing Up a Whtie Tee with Tweed

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!

Blue Tweed, White Tee, White Accessories

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!

Tuesday Style: Yellow Florals

May_trend_month_yellow_Banner, Yellow

The Yellow Theme continues today with this pastel number.

Pink, Yellow, Floral, Belt, Ballet Flats

Sweater – old, Easy DIY Skirt – ME, Belt – Forever 21, Ballet Flats & Wooden Bracelet – Target

I started the morning off with a denim embellished jacket because it is still super cool cold here. It is supposed to warm up later this week but the past couple of mornings have been cold. OK, please forgive my complaining about the weather! Here’s a comparison, with the denim jacket and without just for fun!

This easy DIY skirt is a more buttery pastel yellow although in these photos it is getting washed out! I’ve worn it a few different ways over the past year since making it.

Follow the links if you’d like a review:

1. Easy DIY Skirt, 2. Spring Florals Denim, 3. Monday Mingle – Floral Blush (a more sophisticated version of today’s look), 4. WWW – Minty Florals, 5. May 2012 Trend of the Month – Yellow! Do you have a favorite? Any critiques? I like today’s look or the more sophisticated version #3.

PS: Go read this post, it might just shock you. My hope for myself and our family is that even though we live in this ungodly world we can be “self-controlled and upright, living godly lives in the present age”! Titus 2: 11-14

God has truly blessed our family and in recent months, has been refining each of us to be more like Him. It has been a hard journey, that is by no means over, but it has also been so very good to go through the fire. We always come out better on the other side! To God be the glory!

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!

April Fool’s OOTD!

Happy April Fool’s Day! The nasty colds are behind us and we are slowly attempting normal this week.

BrintPink_PolkaDots

It’s still cool/cold here so I’m still in more winter gear than spring. 😦 I did break out my bright pink top to go with the polka dots and boots though, so that means I’m at least halfheartedly trying transition to Spring. Maybe I’ll do better as April progresses and I get a hair cut! 🙂

Wishing for Sping in Animal Print

I know everyone is wishing for spring, especially with all the great spring fashions hitting the stores and blogs everywhere! I’m not immune to these beautiful spring designs either, but my budget is, LOL! So I’m shopping to my closet to remix what I’ve got!

Animal Print Black & Pink

Blazer – JCP (old), Leopard Tank – Target, Pants – Thrifted, Boots – Easy Spirit

I thought I’d remix my animal print tank with these pink pants and black blazer! I kept the makeup fairly simple too but added a red lip and last night I did my nails in red again. Red nails are so classic, so I thought I’d keep them beyond Valentine’s Day.

This polish is from Wet N Wild (via Walgreen’s), but it doesn’t stink that bad and it lasts for days! I saw a trick to making your nail polish last longer, paint the tips with a different color. I’m thinking silver tips or maybe pale pink in a few days, what do you think?
