OOTD 5/31/2012 - Tippi Stripes Again

J Crew Tippi in Linen Stripe - Size XS
J Crew No2 Eyelet Pencil Skirt in Chili - Size 4
J Crew Elephant Pendant Necklace
J Crew Viv Flats in Leopard Print
I totally copied today's look from Andrea at Life's Divine.  (See her here)  Thanks lady for the inspiration!
I love all of these pieces separately and together as well.  You've heard me rave about the tippi before but the eyelet skirt is equally as nice.  I love the's a true red, not orangey like the vibrant flame and such. (I like those too!  :o))  And of course the vivs are fantastic!  Wearing flats with skirts is a new thing for me but I like how the pointed toe of the viv lends a classic and elegant look without the heel.
Check out this little guy...isn't he a cutie?! 

It was love at first sight...I love the beads and sparkle!  Well, what girl wouldn't?!  :o)

OOTD 5/30/2012 - Minty Fresh

J Crew Droplet Necklace in Brillant Blue
Forever 21 Patent Belt in Green
Ann Taylor Loft Irene Midheel in Tropical Sand

I have some reviews coming (Deck Stripe Pencil Skirt, Tiered Dot Tank, Olympia Leather Wedge and the Factory Thandie in Navy, Red and White Stripe) if I can find the time to upload the pictures and write the reviews. 

The big graduation party for my son is this weekend, so there are lots of last minute details to take care of and I feel like I'm running around like a "chicken with its head cut off.  On the up side, maybe I'll be so busy that I won't find the time to cry.  :o)

Happy Wednesday!

OOTD 5/29/2012 - Pinned

J Crew Cashmere Cardi in Green
J Crew Drapey Stripe Tank in Navy - Size S
J Crew Factory Twisted Pearl Hammock Necklace
Mossimo for Target Snakeskin Wedge Sandals (Old)

I hope everyone had a fabulous long weekend!  I did...I spent Saturday scrapbooking with a friend and yesterday the hubs and I completed several projects from "The List".

I also became an official member of Pinterest.  I'm still learning the ropes but I've already found tons of great information...lots of yummy recipes and DIY ideas to try.  Now, I just need some more vaca so that I have the time to tackle all of these "new" prospective projects.  I guess this just means, more action items for "The List"!

Do you pin?  If so, any pointers that I should know?

OOTD 5/25/2012 - Summer Breeze

J Crew Linen Dot Popover - Size S
Old Navy Tank in White
Old Navy Bootleg Jeans in White
Ann Taylor Loft Wooden Ball Necklace
Ann Taylor Cork Printed Sandals

This outfit has that light, airy feel to it and makes me feel that I should be kicked back in a hammock somewhere under a big shade tree with a good book, a light breeze and a big glass of lemonade. (Alas, I am not.)

I also wanted to share my new nail polish...from OPI's Spiderman Collection, Just Spotted The Lizard.
I think it's growing on me, but it's more gold than I would like...I would prefer a bit more green.  IRL, it's much lighter with more gold reflections than the image above.  Next, I'd like to try Essie's Turquoise and Caicos.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!

OOTD 5/24/2012 - Again

J Crew Tippi in Succulent Green - Size S
J Crew Factory Seersucker Skirt - Size 4
J Crew Droplet Necklace in Brilliant Blue
Ann Taylor Loft Irene Sandals in Tropical Sand

Yep, I liked it so much yesterday that I went with another blue and green combo again today.

I need your suggestions...slowly but surely, I'm coming into the twenty-first century and getting on board with the plethora of technical gadgets that are available.  I recently acquired a Kindle and I'm looking for a few good reads to download.  I think the last couple of things that I read were the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Water for Elephants and a book about Coco Chanel .  I like novels, biographies, mysteries...all sorts of stuff.

So, tell me...What books would you recommend?

J Crew Check Shirt in Navy/White
J Crew Cafe Capri in Warm Jade
J Crew Factory Twisted Pearl Necklace
J Crew Skinny Leather Belt in Glazed Hazelnut
Liz Claiborne Calf Hair Leopard Slingbacks

I really like the navy and green together in this outfit, as well as, the unexpected pop of animal print. (which in my outfits, is not so unexpected.  :o))  And any day that I can wear my checks, is a good day!

I'm going to try and go by the B&M today at lunch, though I'm somewhat afraid.  I did quite a bit of damage last month, so I need to keep it in "check" this month.  Not to mention, I'm sure that we will be getting our first tuition bill any day now.  Yikes!

Today, as part of a team building/appreciation effort, our department is going over to watch a local baseball game and have lunch.  Since, I'll be in the office until noon and then head down the street to the ball park, I wanted to dress somewhat appropriately for both.

Here's what I came up with:

One of  the few things that I love more than fashion is great is it when you can roll both into one.  I ran across these adorable cupcakes and just had to share them.  Enjoy!

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!
