She’s a sweet little thing.  Go check it out!
I wore this outfit out to eat after the whirlwind garage sale weekend.  Let me tell you how good that shower felt.  Wowza.  And to put on real clothes again!  One happy girl.
I can’t express enough how fun skirts are in the summer.  For you girls who love lounge-ware, this is your fashionable answer!

Summer Style- From Polyvore to Real Life #1

I’d love to say I did something fabulous today but I think I did something important none-the-less, I babysit kiddos.  And I am so lucky to get to spend my day with little ones who have sticky hands and messes in every room and pronounce things without their “r’s”.
What do you wear when you don’t really care what you look like?  Okay maybe sweats was your answer.  I confess it probably would be mine.  But I did have to leave the house.  So this was the next best thing-

Spring- Child’s Birthday Party

You may think that this isn’t an occasion that you need to worry about how you look or what you’ll wear, but honey, I’m here to tell you that those pictures will live on in infamy.  Years from now, you will gauge how old your child is by the wardrobe you are in and the hairstyle you’re rockin.’
So dress consciously.  Wear something trendy but with a classic twist.  I like the colored jeans (trendy) with the polka dots and other more classic accessories.  From the waist up, it will be pretty hard to narrow down the decade!
And so bring in another new year with joy and happiness.  How lucky are you to have spent ___ years with your little one! Happy Birthday!

TV Series- 90210- Kelly Taylor

We’re talking old school 90210.  You know, Kelly and Dylan.  Dylan and Brenda.  Kelly and Brandon.  Oh the saga of this show.
I bet if I asked you to sing me the rhythm of the opening to that show, you’d know it right away, probably even if you didn’t watch it.  If you simply existed in the 90s, you have heard it.
What would Kelly Taylor wear?  Something preppy with an attitude.  The surprising twist, I could also see this outfit on Brenda.  Maybe Kelly was stealing more than her boyfriends…?

Spring Break at Home- Overnighter

Maybe grandma and grandpa live close.  Maybe you’ve been secretly longing to make a special visit to a local attraction, get a hotel and just have a short getaway for the weekend.  Whatever it is, plan on packing up the family and getting away for a few days.  It’ll give home a nice perspective, especially when you’ve been cooped up all winter.
First off, find some luggage that doesn’t make you want to die when you haul it in from the car.  When you are looking for luggage, don’t pick a solid black/brown/navy.  You’ll never know which one is yours from all the other hundreds of bags in those colors.  Find a fun color or a cool print that makes you smile and that your husband will still carry.
Next requirement- layer.  Wearing layers will help no matter the temperature in the car, outside, or wherever you are going to visit.
Lastly, flats are your friend whenever you don’t know what you might be doing.  And so is a leather jacket.  Either can be dressed up or down and will work with countless other clothes you’ve packed.
I hope you have a great week of spring break at home!

What to Wear with Patterned Pants

Most of us don’t even get brave enough to purchase these, but they are a big trend.  And really a fun way to freshen up your wardrobe.
Here’s proof that you won’t look back at the pictures of you in patterned pants and wonder what you were thinking-
