Stylin Sunday Roundup

Sunday Stylin Roundup

Hello friends and welcome to another episode of Stylin Sunday Roundup! It’s funny because I always think about a rodeo when I type the title of this post.

The weather ’round here parts has been unpredictable which is evidenced by these three outfits.  The temps have been up and down with damp and dry conditions in between and soon I’ll have to put on some tights.

This first outfit is titled Stripes and Such

Stripes and Such

Stripes and Such is a mix of patterns with the leopard print booties that were purchased from the Deb Shop in the Exton Mall a few years back.  The grey skirt has black side panels so I chose this thrifted top as a complimentary accent.

What do you think? 

I do love my cardigan sweaters especially those that fall below my hips.

Polka Dots and Beads

This is my Polka Dot and Beads outfit.  The sweater is a recent purchase from Burlington Coat Factory, the House of Dereon purse was also purchased from BCF but that was several years ago.  My favorite “Betty Boop” polka dot shoes, beaded necklace and silver accessories completes the look.

Goodwill Goodie

This last outfit is entitled “Goodwill Goodie” and not because of the outfit but because of the leather bag which I purchased for my son for $8.00. He wanted his father’s leather bag but we had donated it to Goodwill last year, so I was on the hunt for another one and this was perfect.

I love thrifting at the Goodwill in Smyrna, DE.  Speaking of Goodwill, I will once again be a Stylist for the 2015 Goodwill Runway Show and I am looking forward to working with the group again.

On this “no-work day casual Friday” I’m wearing leggings under a leopard print dress and leopard print flats from Citi Trends.   You may remember that I wore this same outfit 2 years ago on Thanksgiving, it’s one of my casual favs.  Brass earrings and bangle with a black band watch from Avon completes the look.

So which outfit did you like best?

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and will also have a fantabulous week ahead.

Cool Pool Blue Monday| OOTD

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I am getting so excited in anticipation for the heat of the summer as I’m sure a few of you are as well.  Last week it was still a bit cool but the weekend more than made up for it with temps in the 80’s.  I can’t wait until it’s officially pool time in just a few short weeks!  

Today’s outfit is a combination of JCPenney, Citi Trends, Avon and Target.

OOTD 5 7 14

 

The Peplum top is JC Penney, and I was never a big fan of them because I didn’t think they were flattering to my figure – what do you think?

I not a big retail shopper and I try to stay away from the malls but I won’t rule out low-end shops like Rainbow, Deb and Citi Trends, which is where I purchased this pencil skirt. #dressforless

Ready for the cool pool in the heat of the summer

The black patent leather Mossimo pumps are from Tar’jay (Target).  This is the outfit that I wore to work and later on that evening for teaching a Blogging 101 class at the Bear Library.  It was very comfortable all day and worked well for both environments.

OOTD – Avalanche Attire

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay!!

Our local forecast was way off, we only got a few flakes early this morning and now the sun is shining on this a beautiful crisp Winter’s day. What are your plans for the weekend, will you be doing something fun outdoors? Not me, tomorrow I’ll be stuck inside my closet thanks to a mini avalanche that occurred last night.
Less than a minute after hanging up a shirt the top rack came crashing down taking down the one beneath it as well. Thankfully I had just stepped back otherwise I could have been hit in the head with falling purses! (don’t laugh, it was a hard hat zone!)  I could only just look up and stare, hubby said, “you have too many clothes” – bite your tongue man!  He offered to re-do my closet with sturdier material so tonight off to Lowes we go. I wish my closet looked like his…..

and not like this!!!!

Today’s outfit was born out of the chaos in my closet. The scarf which was hidden on a shelf along with the boy’s baby blankets and box of teeth – (what do you do with baby teeth?) was the palette.  Most of my shoes are covered underneath all those shirts so I am wearing a pair of the loafers I just bought from Target.  They were still in the spare bedroom and had never made it into the closet along with these purple jeans.

All in all I think I made the chaos work for this casual Friday – what do you think?

OOTD – Don't Step on my Blue Suede Shoes!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This morning I jumped out of bed when I realized it was Friday….tomorrow I can sleep in – yay!  I am such a sleepy head, I never get enough sleep – sometimes I am tired of being tired.  Commuting back and forth to work 1 & 1/2 hours each way every day really takes a toll on me and my car.  Tomorrow I am sleeping in until noon!!!

How many of you remember  Elvis Presley’s hit, Blue Suede Shoes – well this is my version of the shoe, actually booties and they are much nicer than what he sang about.  If you do remember Elvis, what was your favorite song or movie, I liked Blue Hawaii.

OOTD 1 11 13 007 OOTD 1 11 13 006 These blue studded booties by Bamboo were purchased several years ago from Burlington Coat Factory and the skinny jeans were $16.44, from “Wally World” (Walmart).  They had several different colors and I may have to get another pair because of the fit.  I chose 1 size up because they are low riders, but I think I can get away with a pair in my regular size.  The sleeveless tank was purchased on clearance from Boscov’s, and the jacket was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill).  Silver cuff bracelet from Citi Trend, rings and earrings from my jewelry box.

OOTD 1 11 13 012

Wednesday, my son’s Business Class went on a Field Trip to Macy’s in NYC, he purchased a pair of Nike Sneakers and this T-Shirt which I thought was really nice.  I can’t wait until he no longer wants it because I’d love to wear it!

OOTD – 5 Shades of Purple

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay, the first one of the new year.

I don’t know about you, but I feel exhausted!  Perhaps it’s because the highs of the holidays are over or simply because I need more sleep…whatever it is, I’m just glad that the weekend is almost here.  Today’s casual Friday oufit consists of 5 shades of Purple ~ socks, boots, scarf, gloves and eye shadow.  Does it remind you of “Barney” – “I Love You…You Love Me” – lol
