OOTD – Avon and Animal Print

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

Today’s outfit is the Avon color block dress which was first featured in this May 2012 post, wow, time sure does fly by!  This time I decided to pair it with a little animal print from the matching earring & necklace set to the shoes and small pouch which was a DIY project.

The lucite earrings and necklace set was purchased at Jewelrymax.com and the lucite rings from Burlington Coat Factory

OOTD – Foggy Monday

Hello Friends and Happy DST Monday!

Woke up thinking it would be a bright and sunny Pre-Spring day, instead it was a dark and damp foggy morning, oh well at least I woke up a lot of people didn’t! (Blessed). The day started out much like most people’s heads…a little foggy, why don’t we abolish Daylight Savings Time, it’s original purpose is no longer valid, what do you think?

Driving in fog is dangerous yet some people feel the need to speed which makes it even worse, unfortunately 6 teenagers lost their lives in Ohio due excessive speeding – God rest their souls! (News Report)

Which brings me to another reason why I don’t like car shopping for my son’s, too many young people die in car crashes. As most of you know my lil sis, Gloria was killed in a car crash in 1992, she was only 29, and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her!

Shake it off … shake it off… sorry, didn’t mean to bring you down!

Let’s clear the way for the outfit of the day.

What do you think about these pumps with this outfit – should I have worn the green cap-toe pumps from Target?

One good thing about Daylight Savings Time it will be a sunshine filled commute home!

OOTD – Triple "S" Snow Day

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I took my car through the car wash yesterday only to wake up to fresh snow this morning.  It never seems to fail, the day after you wash your car it rains or in this case snows.  Oh well it could be worse, I took my time driving this morning and made it safely to work.

Today’s snow day outfit is another one of the brushed SUEDE pantsuits from the back of the closet, paired with a leopard print SCARF and brown SUEDE boots for an easy breezy triple “S” day.

OOTD – Sunny Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.

I hope you had a nice weekend and are starting off your work week in a positive, stress free way!  This morning standing on a sunny deck I couldn’t help but think of Spring with the forecast of temps to rise above 56 degrees by the end of the week. I am however, not naive to think that we won’t be hit with snow and this deck will be covered before the end of February!

On Friday I stopped at GW Boutique (Goodwill) and thrifted a few items all for $3.75, including this sleeveless, black and white tank. It was new, with the tags from Marshall’s still attached. Goodwill is also getting bougie because some of their tags read “Goodwill Boutique”!

OOTD – 1980's Belt

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.  I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend with a chance to relax.  If you follow me on Instagram or Foursquare you know that I spent mine cleaning out desk drawers, shopping at Costco, Walmart and upgrading my Blackberry to a Smartphone at Radio Shack.  This morning I spent way too much time trying to decide on a belt and eventually settled on one that I’ve had since college, sometimes it pays to keep things.

Remember when I purchased the the pencil skirt and top from Target (here).  The shoes and cami were purchased at Ross.

OOTD – Maxi Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.  If you are on the east coast you woke up to a brrrrr…..chilly morning.  I love the cool, crispness of the season, windows cracked open and covers pulled over my head is the best way to sleep!  Today’s outfit is a faux suede maxi thrifted from Goodwill, multi print top from Ross and pumps from Rugged Wearhouse.

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.

Skirt – Closet staple// Top – Walmart//Madden Girl Shoes – DSW//Bracelets – Flea Market Vendor// Necklace – Rugged Wearhouse// Ring – jewelry box

Have a fantabulous day!
