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

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!

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! 🙂

Pattern Mixing: Snow Edition

Snow in many parts of the country is a common winter occurrence, but in East TN it’s a big deal! Today we woke to a beautiful blanket (i.e. dusting!) of the white stuff, however the roads were clear so it was business as usual. If you look closely you can see it swirling in my photos too!

Argyle & Polka Dots

Sweater, Blouse & Skirt – Thrifted, Tights – Target, Boots – Amazon

As is becoming a trend, this outfit looks better in person than in photos! Because of the cold and snow, I wanted to feel warm and cozy so I went with my cashmere argyle sweater over a denim shirt. I thrifted this great polka dot skirt on a recent thrifting trip. It’s too big and too long, almost a midi length.

Argyle & Polka Dots

I’m not sure if I want to take it in and keep the original shape as a straight pencil skirt or if I want to completely change the look by adding pleats in the front and back? Its a flowy skirt, more of a summer weight than winter or fall. Until I decide, I just belted it for today.The thicker sweater tights and tall boots help to keep my legs warm and dry too.

I’m also linking up with these lovely ladies again today too!

Easy Autumn Style: Polka Dots

Happy Wednesday All!! I’m loving this month so far, crisp cool, shorter days that are perfect for hiking through the beautiful leaves or curling up next to a roaring fire. We had our first fire of the season over the holiday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it! Caveboy has asked for another one everyday since too!!

Polka Dot

Sweater – JCP (old), Blouse & Trousers – Thrifted

I’m also loving & embracing fall colors! I really liked how this outfit turned out. Even though the polka dots are small they still add a nice punch to the muted brown and green.
