Prada and Denim

Remember these? I haven't gotten to wear them in awhile
My Salvation Army Pradas

This denim jacket seems to making an appearance at least once  a week
I think it looks so good with my dress clothes

This was another feel good outfit :)
My days are work are excruciating - I am  soooo covered up and so many things to do with so many things being thrown at me - I feel frustrated and inadequate that I can't seem to get it all done - <DEEP BREATH> The weekend is almost here.....unfortunately it will accompanied by rain that is to move in tonight BOOOO Just gotta hang in and practice what I preach - "Do what your best and accomplish what you can, what you can't get to, do it tomorrow" yeah yeah :) Do you have anything that you seem to be wearing alot of these days as the season is changing? Have a great one!!!

I really like this combo - the button up I got at Chadwicks and the tank and pants at Catos. I felt pretty cute in this combo. Monday went by very quickly the weather is sooooo gorgeous. I am a tab bit distraught that my yard needs mowing and my mower is broken and neighbors on both sides have mowed. I have that yuckiest yard <GASP> Mr Man says we should have our fixed by Wednesday - two whole days - not sure I can take it..... :) Day Two without my partner in crime at work - barely holding on - Hope your week is going good so far

Isn't this the neatest thing? It's a scarf that is a poncho, my grandmother scored this unique, lovely find at Salvation Army. I LOVE IT!! It felt flowy and this summer I can put tank tops underneath it. FAB!! yes? This weekend was gorgeous!! Friday my daughter and I had a wonderful time shopping, she got some of the cutest things - she looks great in everything with her cute little size 2 self :) Her taste is different than mine in that I gravitate to bright colors and she prefers grays and blacks. I also scored the BEST ever shoes that I am in love with that I will share with you on Wednesday smiles :) Sunday was a do nothing windows open, sitting outside, reading my school work (now enter economics) <SIGH> Been busy as all get out at work - my partner in crime is out this week so pray I don't drown in e-mails. Have a great week!!

I love the colors of this blouse but the temp has to be just right or the blouse is a little itchy. Warmer weather is coming our way and I thrilled, I am still not thrilled with the time change. I overslept yesterday morning that I wasn't able to get a pic of my outfit or do my morning reading. I am really sleepy as well. Hope you have a great day

Time Change - BOOOO

So far I  not enjoying the time change I prefer to sleep a little longer then be awake a little longer ;) Weekend was pretty good, I ate again all weekend (causing me to gain weight) but I did manage to walk on the Greenway on Saturday. Saturday weather was gorgeous - Sunday was little cloudy and not as warm as Sat. This upcoming week looks to be okay weather temp wise but rain on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. I hope this changes since I have Friday off and my daughter and I are going to shopping for her new attire :) Sooo..... Happy Monday everyone!!!

Likey Jason Wu

So here is the Jason Wu skirt I got at Target, I had been holding back on wearing it as I couldn't figure out what to put with it. Then I remembered this red blouse I got at Marshall's and then I found this yellow cardigan thingy that I got at a yard sale. I was really pleased how it turned out. I felt super cute in this outfit. Rain came in today and brought a little cooler weather buurrrrrr and GRRRRR :) I am very glad it's Friday not really big plans this weekend. Sat going to my friend Kim's house to an UpperCase Living party and I need to find some time off from work on a Friday within the next two weeks to take my daughter to Nashville to Kristine and my lunchtime shopping haunts. My daughter got a job where I work as a contract but keep your fingers crossed they offer her a full time job. I am soooo proud of her as I watch her grow into this strong intelligent woman. Any big plans for you this weekend? Have a great one!!

Feels Like the 80's

This outfit felt like the 80's and I LOVE IT!! I am an 80's girl - love the music, hair, and clothes :) Well except for those jelly shoes <OUCH> This blouse I got on the clearance rack at Target - it was shorter in the front than I liked so I took one of my camesouls and put under it with this FAB jean jacket that Kristine found at Ross. The bling bling necklace I found at Kohls. It broke as soon as I got home but, lucky for me my friend Kristine is talented and fixed it for me YAHHHH Well we are half way there - I am sooo ready for the weekend

Vibrant Colors

I love this jacket with all it's vibrant colors
Jacket and blouse - JcPenny
Black cotton pants - Target
FAB red shoes - Thrifted

Aren't those colors fabulous

Red and Pink Combo - LOVE LOVE
You have probably guessed that my closet consists of many bright colors :) Vibrant colors make me feel good - as the outfit I have one does contribute to my mood - along with the weather and a few other variables. This jacket was a wonderful find at JCPenney's and I wear it both summer and winter. In the winter it's nice to see a little color and the butterfly reminds that spring and summer are just around the corner when I wear this in the winter. This is one of the few pieces that I do intermingle for both times of year. Of course, you know I really like brown as well :) I like red too but do not own many pieces, I am trying to incorporate more into my wardrobe. Are there any colors that make you feel better on a gloomy day?

Would Have Been

This Quantitative Reasoning class is kicking my butt and requiring alot of my attention and sleep. I was update late on Tuesday (class), Wednesday (doing math assignment), and Thursday (met with school team) so by Friday I was exhausted. I even had to try a 5-hour energy shot - which btw does seem to work :) I slept in really late on Saturday, then was tied up with my son. So much that I forgot I had bought tickets for "dinner" at the church and instead Mr Man and I went to O'Charley's, which would have been better since I had already paid for it. I realized it when I pulled into church Sunday :( I did get to walk on the Greenway Sunday it would have been more enjoyable on Saturday as the weather was much prettier. <SIGH> This is a new week and hopefully things will be much better  and there will will be less "would have been" thoughts :) Happy Monday

Structured Nature

We had a little cold snap but I don't think it's going to be long and I will get to wear the clothes in the spring/summer closet exclusively. I broke my own rules and did the unthinkable for this outfit - combined work and leisure...GASP!! Actually since I have been reading blogs and seeing how other women put things together, I have been breaking alot of rules. Don't get me wrong, I still wear my  clothes in line as they are hanging in the closet, based on the temp outside, but....I used to skip over an outfit if say the shoes I would normally wear with  the ensemble was worn the previous day. Now, I take said garment and pair with something different for different shoes. I have been coming with some pretty good outfits this way, still satisfying my "structured nature" as I like to call it :) Do you plan your outfits? How do you put your ensembles together? I am envious of women that get up and go to closet and pull out what they feel like wearing. I have no IDEA how they make a decision like that - I structure as I cannot make a decision :) It's almost Friday.....
