Last Minute Stripes

Since my daughter has been out of school for her holiday vacation, I've been waking up--every morning--late. Yes...I set my alarm clock, but they shouldn't make those 'snooze' buttons on them. 

So my outfits have been totally looking last minute. I didn't even take a photo of my outfit from Monday because I had so much to do after work.

Here's my outfit today--it doesn't help that the weather is all gloomy & rainy.
sweater & skirt: H&M / leather jacket: gifted to my daughter but she can't fit it any longer (arms are E.T.) / booties: Shoeland / necklace: WalMart / bag: Target / rings: ??

I managed to get these shots in right before the rain started again.


I woke up at 6:45 AM (have to be at work by 7:30 AM), not knowing what I was going to wear, and found this skirt. Sooooo, I didn't feel like searching for a nice blouse or a top period. However, I reached into my dresser and pulled out a plain ole black sweater. It worked for me...*shrugs shoulders*

I didn't want to be totally drab so I added the necklace & the rings.

I'm not feelin' it this week. It's dreary...and I just want to stay in bed in my PJ's with some hot chocolate (preferably the salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks), and finish reading my book.

That's all I want to do.

Thursday can't get here soon enough! I ready for my vacation!

Feature Friday: Tanesha (Girl with Curves)

Meet Tanesha....

I'm not sure when I stumbled upon Tanesha's blog (Girl with Curves), but I was happy I did.
She has such an inspiring blog in which she offers wonderful styling tips, advice, and
so much more for the woman with a curvy physique.

She's sophisticated, and totally gorgeous!

My daughter also visits her blog frequently, because she's always wanting to see
what Tanesha's going to do with her hair.

Check her out! She's awesome.

Feeling Cozy...

sweater & pleated skirt: Old Navy / boots: ShoeLand / flower ring: Forever21 (Old)



It was one of those days that I wished I could have stayed in my bed all day. Next best thing was to wear one of my coziest sweaters from Old Navy. I love this sweater! It has become my 'go-to' cozy piece. And I just wanted to wear it with a maxi. I've seen this style on other blogs before & decided to give it a try. I thought it worked.

Also, you can't really see my hair...but I put my hair in a bun & I was really proud of it. I used an old sock to create the donut piece. Very simple. I got the idea from Syl and Sam's blog.

Ok, so now I'm off to catch up on some of my blogs!

Take care!

Even while there's rain...

top: H&M / shorts (old): Old Navy / tights: Target / booties & necklace: Forever21

The weather (temperature) has been unseasonal lately. We were at 70 yesterday & 66 today. Rain finally arrived. However, I was able to squeeze in a couple of shots of my outfit today while the rain briefly halted. Yep...more shorts with tights.


Well back to reading some more blogs!

Casual Saturdays...

blazer: Target / Tshirt: H&M / necklace: Forever21 / jeans: NY & Co / bag: Jessica Simpson / boots: ShoeLand

Another day....another Saturday. Ok, I must admit, I love these boots from Shoeland. They're stylish and freakin' comfortable at the same time.


Considering I had tons to do today, I needed a shoe that was comfy. I was on my feet all day. I really need a day to relax. I'm hoping Sunday will be just that -- my day to relax.


So my day isn't over...I have more to do. A woman's work is never done.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Their shop consist of what they create...which are pretty awesome pieces.
