Today is my husband’s birthday! He opted for dinner at home rather than at a restaurant, so I will be busy today making his favorite foods and wrapping up some gifts for him. My boys will be helping, too!
Here are some things I have my eye on:
From Old Navy:
I can’t get enough of jungle/tropical floral prints. I think this swing or shift style dress is really flattering. You could wear this to a cookout, to a restaurant, or to church.
You know I love my collection of graphic tees. This would look cute under a kimono.
Here are some things I’ve purchased:
Melanie Shankle and Sophie Hudson have been talking about the Verdusa caftan but I thought I needed a little more structure so I took a chance on this – in the dark grey color. I think I like it. I haven’t put it with my correct undergarments and accessories yet, so I’m not positive. I love Patricia from Southern Charm and her caftan collection. I’m not sure I life a caftan-worthy lifestyle!
From American Eagle and local boutique:
The day after my husband’s birthday is my 17 year old niece’s birthday! I hope I did well for her. I went in American Eagle and found this mauve/burgundy peplum tank and this tie-dye tank. Both were 60% off! I then went to a cute local boutique and found this white bandeau and little earrings.
O.k., I will admit, while in American Eagle I found these slides for 40% off, making them only $11 dollars! My size was not available, but they are on order for me.
Also, the ones below would be so cute for 4th of July. They are a true red even though the photo doesn’t look like it and they are the same price. I left these in the store, because I do have some self control!
While in a local boutique, I tried these Corkys Boutique wedges but they only had my size in camo. The camo is super cute, but I knew the pewter was what I would wear more. I have been searching for a wedge like this that didn’t break the bank. These were $49 and so comfortable. I did have to order from Amazon because the boutique was out of this color. I did try to shop locally!
I love these leather earrings and have used this Etsy shop twice. Their prices are fair, the shipping is quick, and they come packaged in such a cute way! I added a cork and a camo pair to my collection. I’m so excited and seriously wear this type of earring almost everyday!
What I’ve Worn Recently:
This is one of my garage sale bracelets from Saturday.
This is what I wore to brunch with my niece last week.
This is what I wore to run errands one day. I think that is sunscreen on my mirror – keeping it real. I will go clean it now!
This is another errand running outfit.
And, finally this is a picture my sister sent me to illustrate why we don’t like the high waist trend. Why did we think this looked good? I’m on the left and my sister is on the right. She was voted best dressed in high school!
I really hadn’t shopped in several weeks until this week. It was nice to have the time to wander in a few stores. How often do you shop? I go in spurts. I would say I average once a week if you are talking about going in a clothing store – including my consignment stores. I don’t always buy something, though. I don’t buy a lot of stuff online usually. I really still like to see and touch items before I buy them. I make exceptions for Loft, Old Navy, and Target.com because I know I can easily return the items.
Happy Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
