Summer Whites Dots & Stripes

Happy 1st Day of Summer – the longest day of the year!

More sunshine means more fun time, so how are you going to celebrate ?  

Will you be cooking on the grill; sitting on the patio/deck listening to music; going to the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival; outdoor dining; heading down to FireFly, playing with the kids/grands or just relaxing with a book and a beverage?  How about an ice cream cone from Mister Softee or a $2 Ice/$3 Gelati from Rita’s?

No matter what you do, just do it and have fun!

OOTD – Mix It Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

I had an online weekend…reading and commenting on Blogs…updating status’…tweeting….Instagraming…Sverving…and…creating a Facebook Campaign, “Bloggers4JCPenney“. There were several bloggers who liked the concept and submitted their posts, I hope you’ll check it out and do the same.

Saturday, I received my first Influenster VOXBOX, and will be posting a review later this week. Sunday, I went to church, wore green and cooked CornBeef, Cabbage and Potatoes for St. Patty’s Day. Tomorrow #1 son has an interview at Bank of America, he and I will be meeting his DVR job coach at 1:00.  The job market is tough made even more so when you have a disability so please say a little prayer for him.

We were all hoping for another warm weekend but it seems like ‘ole Man Winter is back for one last hurrah! Wednesday is officially the first day of Spring so I’m mixing in a little bright colors with today’s all black outfit.

Are you planning a special “1st Day of Spring” outfit or will you wait until it gets warmer?

OOTD – Gazebo in Glasgow

Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful Saturday!

The weather here was absolutely GORGEOUS and like almost everyone else in town we spent most of the day outdoors.  My son and I had a few errands to run which included a stop at Rugged Wearhouse in Glasgow.  There’s a gazebo behind one of the medical centers with a lake (and a Home Depot) in the background which made for a good spot to take pictures.

OOTD – Politically Incorrect President's Day

Hello Friends and Happy President’s Day 2013

Lucky lucky you if you are home today on holiday because “it’s as cold as a witches’ tit”!   I remember that as being one of my mother’s favorite sayings during those cold New York winters.  Do you remember any crude statements that your parents or grandparents liked to say way before it would be considered politically incorrect? (careful)

In honor of President’s Day I was going to wear Red with Blue and White Polka Dots but it’s just too cold.  Instead I chose the warm and cozy flannel shirt that my son put in the “to be donated” box but never made it, a thrifted khaki skirt and knee high boots – it’s all about keeping warm!  I like these boots because they can be worn full length showing the brass studs or folded over to reveal the leopard print – two styles in one for less than $20!

Target's BOGO Sale

Hello Friends, I hope your week ended well and you are now home safe and sound.  After work I stopped at Tar’Jay to make a return and of course took a detour to the shoe department.  Winter is not yet over and the North East is being hit with a major snowstorm, however, retailers are busily stocking their shelves with Spring apparel.

Target is having a BUY 1 GET 1 50% OFF on their shoes and accessories and my tootsies were getting excited in anticipation of being free again.  The details on Mossimo shoes are getting much better, check out some of the latest styles currently on display.

There were still a few clearance items on the shelves including boots which will be needed for at least another month.  However, the Cap Toe heels and loafers were no longer available and most likely were shipped to Goodwill stores in the area.  Target, being a good Corporate Citizen donates a lot of their unsold merchandise directly to Goodwill where even better deals can be had.

OOTD – Black & White Tight

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It’s mid-week, the temps are rising and the sun will be shining – all is good in the neighborhood! Dark and dreary days really take a toll on the mind and body, which is not good when trying to lose weight. I need to step up my Zumba workouts and cut back on the carbs so that my clothes fit better…this skirt is tight!

Does the weather or seasons affect your weight?

OOTD 2 6 13 009

Watch – Traci Lynn // Bracelet – Flea Market Vendor // Ring – Avon // Earrings – Icings OOTD 2 6 13 017

Both the skirt and top were thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill).  The top was made in Hong Kong and has a very unique design with the metal rectangles sewn onto the front.
