OOTD – Trees & Target on Tax Day

Hello Friends, I hope you had a great weekend and an enjoyable tax-free Monday!

I woke up this morning thinking it was Sunday.  The weekend came and went with such quickness that I though we should have had one more day free from work, but no such luck!  We did manage to get some yard work done before the heat returns because it is not fun pulling weeds and trimming trees in intense heat.  I love this time of year with all the flora blooming but it reeks havoc on my son and his seasonal allergies.  This was my grandmother’s favorite tree and every Spring she’d look outside and say, “Toni, did you take a picture of that tree” – I do miss her so!

Mama, here’s a picture of that tree.

These trees are on the side of the house, they bloom then change green in about 2 weeks.

Goodwill Deals of the Week

Hello Friends and Happy Tax Day 2013!

I hope you have completed and submitted your taxes and maybe got a refund.  Ours were completed last week and thanks in part to the numerous Goodwill donations throughout the year we got a little tax break.

As much as much I love donating to GW Boutiques, thrifting there is much more enjoyable.  Last Sunday I went to Goodwill in Middletown, which by the way has been reorganized and looks great.  I thrifted a skirt, 2 tops and a pair of new floral jeans for $20.25, and submitted these photos for their Macklemore “Pop The Tag” contest.

Then on Thursday I went to GW Boutique on Concord Pike and thrifted these tops and skirts for $3.75 each and a Kate Spade purse for $4.00.  I’m going to assume it’s a designer-inspired purse and if you know how I can determine that, please let me know.

OOTD – Black and White with a Twist

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

It has finally happened, Winter is officially over and based upon the temps for the next few days so is Spring!  If you live in the MidAtlantic area you know that we went from the cold-in-the-low 50’s on Saturday to the hot-in-the-mid 80’s today, all I can say is “bring it on”!  I love the warmer temps, not intense heat but warm enough to wear only one layer of clothing and a wrap dress is perfect.  If you follow me on Instagram you know that I twisted my knee doing Zumba and haven’t been able to wear heels, needless to say, I’m not happy.  I did pose in them this morning but had to go straight to the flats to lessen the pain.

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?

OOTD – April Fool’s Day

Hello Friends and Happy April Fool’s Day

This was the last day of my mini vacation and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day.  I was able to turn off the heat, open the windows and enjoy warm sunshine with a light breeze.

OOTD – Week of Winter

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

OOTD – Turquoise Thursday

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Delaware dodged the snowstorm bullet yesterday, we only got a little rain and heavy winds and today the sun is shining with temps hovering above the 40 degree mark.  Next week’s forecast call for highs in the 50’s to low 60’s, Spring is right around the corner, and more sunlight with the start of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday – don’t forget to “Spring Forward”.

Today’s outfit includes the color turquoise, a color that I like in clothing but not in jewelry.  Turquoise, The Gem of Native Americans was very popular in the 60’s and early ’70’s,  it seemed as though everyone had a big Turquoise ring or necklace, both men and women.  Sapphire Green is supposed to be the “it” color for Spring, but Royal and Cobalt blues are my favorites as well as the lighter shades like turquoise because of their calming effects.

Calm, cool and collected – ready to take on the day!

How does your favorite color make you feel?

Duct Tape DIY

Hello Friends, I hope your Friday night is winding down and you are fine as wine…cheers…clink!

I was cleaning out my DIY supply drawer and found a roll of Zebra Print duct tape that was purchased from Dollar General and decided to do a quick project.

I covered a bracelet to wear with my Mossimo flats from Target.

OOTD – Fun Feet Friday

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay !

In the early 2000’s, I had a job that permitted me to work from home on Fridays and I enjoyed dressing down in jeans and slippers. I no longer have that job nor the luxury of working from home on Fridays, but it hasn’t stopped me from dressing down in jeans and slippers shoes!

Image Image

I am almost head to toe Mossimo, even having a little fun changing the footwear this morning.  These shoes are part of my Target haul (here) and I want you to guess which pair made it to work today.

Image Image Image

The cardigan sweater is from Ross and accessories from my jewelry box.

Image Image

Which ones would you have chosen, the embellished flats or the Cap Toe heels?

Image Image

Oh, BTW, this is the first time attempting a serious pattern mix – what do you think – Yay or Nay??

OOTD – Before and After Church

Hello Friends and Happy Sunny Sunday

This morning’s church service was blessed with a sermon by a visiting minister from Wilmington, and visiting guests from a small neighboring church in Middletown.  A great way to start off the week and I am looking forward to an even more blessed work week, I hope it’s the same for you!
