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

Blazer – Old Navy, Sweater – JCP, Pants & Flats – Target, Scarf – Big Lots
This business casual look started off with the tangerine sweater and brown pants, but then I remembered it isn’t summer yet so I needed to find another layer at least. That’s when I rediscovered this closet orphan: a brown plaid blazer from Old Navy I picked up years ago. I threw on this scarf I picked up at Big Lots of all places and called it good! I’ve got some slight pattern mixing going on here!! 😉
I’m still rockin’ the no-heat curls method I found via Pinterest! This Twisty No-heat curls method has been super easy for me, and again I wanted to point out that it may work so well for me because I already have curly/wavy/frizzy hair.
I thought I would pass along some tips & tricks I’ve picked up for this method in case you would like to give it a try as well. Here goes….
I usually shower and wash my hair at night – it just works for me. When I wash my hair I can either blow it out straight, sleep on it and it’s nice and smooth the next morning OR I use the no-heat curls method.
1. I use some type of smoothing cream from about midway down on my hair to the ends while it’s wet. Not at the roots or it ends up looking greasy – yuck! (I’m currently using one from Suave, but it changes all the time so I don’t have a specific brand that I stick with or anything).
2. I section off the shorter layers around my face from the longer layers down my back so that I have 4 sections total. Caveman calls me Pippy Long-stockings if that gives you an idea!
3. DO NOT (at least for me) coil up into mini-buns around my head – horrific things happen, i.e. frizzy city!!!
4. Continue to re-coil throughout the evening, night. I’m not sure about you but I wake up for various reasons throughout the night and when I do I just finger comb the coils back into place.
5. Next morning – turn your head upside down and blast the roots, it adds just the right amount of volume.
6. Then I turn myself right side up and use a round brush to blow out my part. This helps the part to be not as noticeable and again added volume.
7. Throughout the day continue to finger comb curls back, away from face. That’s it!
It’s really a super easy hairstyle to achieve with great results. I hope you’ll let me know if you give it a try!

Yay!! It’s Friday!!! Our weekend plans include loads of outside time!! It’s supposed to be 80 degrees by next Tuesday, but first we have to get through the yucky cold rain!
I showed this Embellished Denim jacket almost two months ago on Instagram and have been trying to figure out how to wear it ever since! Then I saw this photo over on Grace’s blog for the March Open to Interpretation.
Inspiration! I knew how to style my Embellished Denim Jacket! BTW – here’s Kayla’s look and Eric’s too! I think I got pretty close!
Denim Jacket – Thrifted, Knit Top & New Flats – Target, Colored Pants – Chadwicks
Do you like my new ballet flats I picked up at Target last week? I love them! They are super comfortable and go with just about anything. I was needing some brown flats to replace a much older pair of cheap brown loafers I was wearing everywhere on the weekends, these are perfect!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!! I’m linking up with these beauties today!
