This outfit was done maybe two weeks ago but never published it. Probably because now all I see when I see the above picture is how HUGE my stomach looks.

But to be fair, some have asked to keep up on the clothes thing. So here ya go.



and now my favorite part: they were a Christmas present. 


Getting in a Valentine mood

Valentines Day is about love, great friendships and polka dots. Gotta love the polka dots. Why hasn’t anyone made a polka dot rose?! I’d buy a dozen every Valentines Day for myself. Seriously, if we can make seedless watermelon where are the polka dot flowers?!

I digress…

They make me smile. Any rainy day has the potential to be better if only you wear polka dots…or animal print.

I’ve had some of you ask to see more outfits, and to be honest I’m getting more excited to mix and match my items together to make new outfits. I blame Pinterest. And I would rather use what I have in my wardrobe before shopping for new clothes. 


Unfortunately for you, you are only going to get a picture of my shirt and jewelry. No fancy shoes today- it was raining so hard I couldn’t talk myself into wedges.


Next time I won’t let the weather decide my choices…unless it’s still raining cats and dogs. At that point I’ll just live in my rain boots. (and as I write this I hear it pouring outside)

You’ll want to come back Saturday for a BIG announcement!

Don’t miss it!

Everyone needs a little leopard in their closet

Yes, I believe everyone needs a little leopard in their closet 🙂

I got a surprising amount of people talking and mentioning the ‘outfit post’ that I thought I’d do another. I don’t pretend to be one of those really cool fashionable blogs. But since I like seeing others outfits for inspiration I thought I might do a few on here.



Fact: taking outfit pictures are SO. AWKWARD.

Just some thoughts that go through my mind: ‘What do I do with my hands? Does my face look weird?! I feel so dorky!’


Yeah, so I just look away. 🙂 Hope you have a great Tuesday!

Pretty dress

Looking at Mod Cloth is bad. Very bad- of at least it is if I have any money. I don’t so I just post things here to let every family member know what I would like for Christmas, Birthdays and St. Patrick’s Day. lol Just kidding.

But isn’t it BEAUTIFUL?!!

Mod Retro Indie Clothing

You know those adds that are on the side of your Facebook page? I clicked on one this morning (which I never do) and found the most amazing site EVER!!! You must check it out here. You will thank me later. In my opinion it’s better than Etsy even! It has all kinds of vintag-y and retro and current styles. rings, shoes, dresses (and oh the dresses!), shirts, pants and purses.

Here are some things I would LOVE to get…hint hint family members.

*Warning: When looking at this site, make sure you have at LEAST an hour. It’s addictive

You have to look online at the black dress. The detail and lace is unbelievable! What a perfect black dress…

There are 2 items that really jumped out at me and made me yearn to hold them in my little hands and hang them in my closet. The shirt above is one. I LOVE and I mean LOVE anything hinting to 1800’s period clothing. The shirt above is close to perfection in my mind. Uh, present anyone?!

And last but not least is the most adorable, ‘I NEED’ swimming suit. I am needing a new one, my other died on me, and I’m dreaming of owning this. Most one pieces are boring and well, lets just be honest: lame-o with a capital L. This however says fun and adorable. And best of all, I can feel comfortable in it, which is the main point anyways.

In my Fall closet

These pieces are hanging or sitting in my closet. I am totally ready for Fall and can’t wait to wear more jackets and hats. I’ve been really into wearing my jean skirt with light colored tights and then my black wedges. We’ll see how long this lasts though. Fads go in and out. Right now? I’m typing this wearing jeans and a fleece pull over. Nothing fancy. I did however, just come back from my first MOPS group. It was nice and comfortable. We had tons of girly food, a craft (which I rocked on) and a couple speakers. It was nice. I think totally worth the $35 for a year. We are also going on outings to pumpkin patches, coffee get together’s, making meals for families with new babies and no one to help them, etc.
~oh, back to fashion. You know when you walk through a mall and you see pieces that you love but would have nowhere to wear them? Here are a few of mine:
Wish List
Wish List by aemielonen featuring Marni
Aren’t they beautiful?! As you can see, I like the bling. The ring, I suppose is do-able…but I wouldn’t wear it to the next MOPS meeting though. 🙂 Even though I have this picture of the things I wish I had an excuse to wear, I am very happy and satisfied with my Zabra printed bag. I can fit everything into it! And when I’m wearing nothing special, my purse and a little lip gloss makes the whole outfit look put together. Now, I just need to go to a place like…Goodwill and look at their rings, maybe I can find something there I like. If not, I could always go to Target. *sigh, but they make their jewelry so…lets just say I fix a lot of Target jewelry for people. They fall apart, tear, become unglued or a link comes out. We’ll see. I’m in no hurry to buy anything. But Christmas is just around the corner…
