Would You Wear Walmart to the White House?

A few weeks ago hubby and I went to Wally World –aka- Walmart to pick up a few groceries but of course, we each stopped in the clothing section first and yes, we both put something in the cart other than milk, bread, and eggs. 

Hubby found a few shirts for Tayair to wear to work and I found a few skirts and tops for me to wear to work!

I normally wear dresses to work but their Faded Glory skirts are 95% cotton making them great for the end of the season, perfect to wear on the hottest dog days of summer. 

They were also only $6.88, so together with the top the entire outfit was less than $10 and you know that made it perfect for my wallet!

The long necklace was purchased from Avon and it comes with matching earrings which I didn’t wear, instead am wearing a pair of small gold hoops.  


The clutch was purchased last season from Kohl’s and was a good way to break up the blue.  The bracelet is from Old Navy and if I am not mistaken the watch was also purchased from Avon.

Gotta love these denim wedge sandals which I think worked well with this casual outfit from Walmart.  As a matter of fact, I was going to wear this outfit on our tour of The White House but instead wore the dress.

What do you think would wearing Walmart to The White House be appropriate?


You Pick the Purse

I’ve had to cut back on the “You Choose the Shoes” series now that hubby is no longer my photographer. I’m letting him get more rest in the morning, so it’s just me and the camera and sometimes using the timer takes longer than changing the shoes. But never fear, it’s not a done deal my dears we will one day resume.  So in the mean time and in between time let’s try, “You Pick the Purse!”

White to Polka Dot OOTW

I am not even going to get into how many purses that I actually have, but I will admit that I recently got mad at myself when I found a whole container of them under the bed! I am however, trying to declutter and have sold several and my recent Yard Sales so eventually, I’d like to get it down to about 2 dozen! Shoot, I still remember back in the 80’s when I ‘had’ to have a purse to match every pair of shoes to match every outfit – crazy right?

What is your accessory obsession or do you even have one?

If you remember this dress, it was for a sponsored post for Midnight Velvet and I love their Google+ page.  They are always having contests and giveaways, so check them out when you get a chance.

I am glad that I chose this dress to feature because not only are Polka Dots prints my favorite but also because it can be worn all four seasons. I’ve worn it with a cardigan sweater in Autumn and with a blazer in the Winter.

Also, it has side pockets, not that I use them to store anything, but I do like that it’s not just an “A line” dress, like the other sheath dresses that I have.

I found this clutch in the back of my closet and remember that it was thrifted from Goodwill last year. I thought it might pair well if I were going out to dinner or to church, but the red tote is much more practical for wearing to work.

The neckline on this dress is very flattering and I don’t usually like skinny belts but I do like how this one fits on me!

This red tote was purchased from Walmart but I have a few others in similar styles from Avon.  Love love love these Jessica Simpson sandals!!

Pick the Purse

Okay, so which purse would you pick to wear with this dress?
