Wow, apparently I only got dressed three times this week.  I believe it.  It was one of those weeks.




Scarf & cardi:  Target

Tee: American Apparell

Jeans: thrifted Sevens

Bracelet:  made it

Earrings:  Kohl’s last fall

I am trying to wear different things with my Cardigans now other than just tanks.  I like this casual look.  I need more good tee shirts.  American Apparel is stinking expensive, but I cannot find a comparable tee anywhere else.  It is all in that slinky, not clingy material and a good fit.

My friend Sarah took that picture while we were at work.  I needed a new blog profile picture.  Thanks Sarah!  I will put it on my blog profile soon. =)



Cardi,  tank & shoes: Target

Belt: ?

Jeans: thrifted Sevens

This is one of my few stripes-don’t-look-good-on-me-but-I-don’t-care outfits.  I can’t help it, I love stripes. 


Lastly, this one was pretty much a fail…


Jean Jacket: Gap Outlet

Tee: American Apparell

Skirt: years ago

Shoes: TOMS

Scarf: Target

It doesn’t help that I didn’t have time to dry and fix my hair.  I had just gone running and was on my way to a meeting with hubby and our insurance agent.  I think the skirt is too blah and has to go.  I was trying to give it another chance.  Also, I think jean jackets are not for me… wahhhh!!!  I have huge shoulders, and to get them to fit my shoulders I end up feeling like the jacket is big and boxy.  I’m not sure if it is just the cut on this one or what. 

After I made a 9 year old take that photo, Susie wanted to have her picture taken, too, but when I tried…


As usual, she proceeded to stand there and fuss and I just now figured out, why she always does that.  She wants her picture taken with me!  So next time you will get to see her happy face and her we-are-potty-training-right-now-so-cut-me-some-slack-outfit-of-awesomeness. 

It seems my daughter and I both have an affinity for outfits-that-require-multiple-word-hyphenated-explanations.  Runs in the family I guess.

Linking up with WIWW on The Pleated Poppy.



  1. That pic. turned out better than I thought it would. lol And I like the jean jacket, you just have to get used to them. Plus in summer they are awesome to wear, they are light and look good. :)

  2. Cute pics! I wear a lot of cardigans with tanks, too, and just bought several short-sleeved ones so I can do it this summer, too.

    Followed you here from WIWW.


  3. Your 3rd outfit....yes the skirt had to go, but keep the jacket and wear something fitting underneath of it without the scarf. Then you will have another outfit! The others look great and I like the striped one on you.
