OOTD – The Posh.mina

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday.

I hope you had a nice weekend and that your Monday was productive and stress free.

My weekend was nice starting with attending the C.O.D.E. Conference on Saturday, which was an awesome event for small business owners.  Does your city or state provide free conferences or seminars for the advancement of their small business owners?

Sunday I didn’t attend church instead lounged around getting some much needed R&R and then afternoon shopping with my son which was a rare treat for me, he’s at the age when being with mom is not cool.  I remember praying for a boy each time I was pregnant, but sometimes I wish I had a girl to shop with especially now that my grandmother is no longer with me.  She and I loved to hang out…shopping for bargains…eating out …laughing…just having fun…I really miss her, which is why I started blogging.

This morning I heard birds chirping and the weather has been so mild.  With little to no significant snow I’m hoping Mother Nature isn’t trying to lull us into a false sense of “it’s Spring”!  Remember the catch phrase, “it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature”, well I hope she reciprocates.

Today I am wearing the Posh.mina that I reviewed (here) last month and because it’s one of my favorite colors it will definitely become a closet staple in high rotation.

OOTD – Belt It Yay or Nay ?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Now that the holidays are over and everyone is back to school and work we are now looking forward to the first major snow storm of the year.  If I had it my way it wouldn’t hit until late March and then a quick thaw straight to Spring!  I hope your Hump Day is progressing nicely and that you are not trying to cram 5 days of work into 3, but if you are, stop…take a deep breath and say,  “the weekend is almost here!”

Belt or not?

I didn’t wear it to work because I felt it would take away from the necklace, what do you think?

OOTD – Thrifted & Target Tuesday

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday before Thanksgiving

Yesterday, after work I met with two representatives from The Money School of Delaware.  They had read my post, “From Purses to Portfolios” and were so impressed that they offered me an opportunity to create their blog as well as host various training webinars.  Attending events and writing about women’s issues mixed with the fashion and savings was exactly where I wanted to take this blog.  Now that this has come to fruition so quickly I want to thank God for I am truly blessed and look forward to working with some great people at The Money School.

I will keep you posted as to when it goes live because it will be separate from my dedivahdeals blog.

OOTD – Monday Minimum

Hello friends, happy Monday and what a beautiful day it is.  Every morning when I wake up I give thanks and think of how truly blessed we are…that after saying, “aaw man, I have to get up and go to  work again!”.  Monday is not my favorite day and today’s outfit isn’t my favorite either, just two solid pieces together, nothing special.  Both the maxi skirt and top are closet staples which I have worn several times throughout the years, however, this is the first time wearing the Polka Dot peep-toes pumps.  I’ve tried them on and even posed in them (here), but have never wore them out and they are quite comfortable.  I should have gotten a half size larger because when I walk my feet slides forward causing the toes to stick out too far, need to get those gripper inserts.

OOTD – Before & After Church

Hello friends, I hope today, the beginning of your new week was a blessed one. I was tired this morning but vowed to get to church and thankfully I did. Service was good but it was “Harvey Day” so it was a bit more crowded and lasted a lot longer, ending at 2:00. I would have stayed for dinner but needed to go grocery shopping so I rushed home, changed clothes and headed to Costco and Safeway.

Traffic on 95 was horrendous, took the exit ramp into the mall only to realize that the traffic lights were out and all the stores in the mall and Costco were closing. We didn’t wait to find out why there was a power outage just quickly turned around and headed back south to Safeway.

I wore a sleeveless dress to church, thrifted from Goodwill covered with a 3/4 sleeve jacket that belonged to my grandmother (RIP Mama). My Mossimo heels from Target, clutch from DSW and “lap cover” scarf from Boscov’s.

After church it was still warm so I threw on a pair of shorts also thrifted from Goodwill, top from Walmart, loafers thrifted from Salvation Army and a belt from my closet.

I hope you have a fantabulous evening!

OOTD – Monday Madness

Happy Monday my friends.  This morning was full of drama, while having breakfast we got a Robo call from the school’s Department of Transportation.  The bus driver had quit and they were looking for a replacement but wasn’t sure what time the bus would arrive.  My son, being anxious to get to school…(yea right) whined and begged to drive my car.  He had driven me to Dover and back on Saturday so was comfortable with the car, however, it was his first solo trip.  I gave in and let him drive, praying until I got the call from the school that he had arrived safely and my car key was in the office.  Tayair had to drive me to his school to pick up my car and en route his windshield wiper flew off.  It was foggy and his defroster took almost a 1/2 hour to clear the window but we made it safely and he went to his shop to have them replaced.  I was an hour late to work but it’s three days before my birthday, my son’s are safe so it’s all good.

Got the call and I was happy!

OOTD – Casual FRI-YAY

FRI-YAY – FRI-YAY ~ thanking God we made it through another work week without any hurt, harm or danger!  Heading out shortly to start the weekend, a relaxing one with no major projects other than organizing the shoes scattered throughout my closet – yay!  Casual Friday I decided to wear my DIY maxi shirt (here) with a plain red top, and a pair of flat sandals from DSW.

Saturday Shoe Shopping with Son – It’s a Good Day

I woke up Saturday to “Mom…mom…mom” while being poked in the back….”mom mom are we still going shoe shopping? Oh yea, that got me up and going, it was music to my ears. He actually wanted new sneakers but shoe shopping in any shape, fashion or form is a good day. I had two DSW coupons for $25.00 off my next purchase as well as a balance on a gift card so that’s where we were headed but first we stopped at Burlington Coat Factory.  Malik is still on the Graduated License program for supervised driving so I was a passenger on this mission.

It’s a Good Day – my son is taking me shoe shopping!

He found a pair of Cadillac  sneakers for $25.00 (yea Malik) but also 2 jackets and a watch, me…nothing but pictures which I will post later. I’m not sure if they are pairing down the shoe department or waiting for the Fall collections, but they really didn’t have anything that called out “buy me buy me”.   The price of the sneakers and jackets wasn’t bad but the cashier asked if I would complete a phone survey, for which I would receive 20% off the highest priced item.  Sure,  so after completing the survey she re-rang one of the jackets saving me an additional $15.00.  It’s a a Good Day!

Cadillac Sneakers – $24.99

Jacket on clearance for $49.98, but got an additional $14.99 off – paid $34.99

Watch – $19.99

$39.99

Next we drove over to DSW, Malik didn’t find anything but I found a cute pair of Chinese Laundry suede pumps for less than $10.00! They were on clearance, 30% off $49.94,  and using my two coupons and gift card nothing came out of my wallet, Saturday Shoe Shopping with Son was a VERY good day!!

Clearance $49.94 plus 30% off plus $25 off coupons = $9.96 – used gift card – paid $0

So comfy1
