Weekend Outfit

Something casual for a day spent lounging, lunching, and going to the movies with my favorite guy. I have never been one to wear a skirt just because, but when I found this one at Target, I thought, "why not?"

I'm definitely scared of knits on the bottom half of my body because let's face it, I have a lot of junk in the trunk. I'm a fan of other people making knits look great and effortless, but I think this skirt isn't something I would ever wear to work.

Excuse the hair...I didn't really do much to myself other than get dressed, not a fan of makeup on the weekends either.
Weekend Outfit:
White tank - AGX
Orange tank - Target
Brown knit skirt - Target
Brown wedges - Target
Necklace - Charming Charlie


Last Thursday's Outfit 08/20/09

I love this cardigan, shirt, and shoes! The shirt is a purchase back from June when I was in Indiana. Gotta love H&M! I wonder why they don't open up a store in Texas, I mean, come on!
Last Thursday's Outfit Details:
Cami - Old Navy (not seen, except a peep on the bottom)
Off White slouchy shirt - H&M
Pearl link cardigan - CAbi
Herringbone pants - Old Navy

Last Tuesday's Outfit 08/18/09

Just back from my weekend trip from Toledo, Ohio visiting the BF's family. I was so tired...our flight got delayed because of weather, but I had to come into work, so I opted for something super easy to slip on.

Last Tuesday's Outfit Details:
Patterned kimono sleeve shirt - Target
Grey pants - Old Navy
Black sandals - Nine West
Jewelry - JC Penney (?)


No clue why I put my hair in front since I crop my face out, but whatever. There's little Napoleon trying to get in my picture!

Thursday's Outfit 08/06/09

I blur out the background in my pictures because I typically take my pics right by the little area I have for my doggies. It's not cute, so I just blur it all out: water/food bowls and kennels.

Here's me before the makeup that I apply on the road or in the parking lot at work. I have no clue why I do this other than I wait until the last possible minute to get up every day. It's just a part of my ritual and I'm used to it. I wear contacts mostly, but lately I've been wearing my glasses because my contacts will irritate my eyes some.

Outfit Details:
Black/blue smocked waist tank - JCPenney
Blue cardigan - Target
Grey pants - Old Navy
Black wedges - Payless

Wednesday's Outfit 08/05/09

Back to taking pictures of myself each morning, the next couple of posts are what I wore last week.

The first week of the month is always a crazy time at work. I work in accounting/financial analysis, so during close it's crazy busy and I literally do not leave my desk all day long. On these days I tend to wear higher heels since I'm not moving around a lot.

On your busy days at work, do you have any go to outfits?
Outfit Details:
Green/white faux wrap dress - CAbi
White s/s cardi - Target
Brown belt - NY and Co
Tan Cherie shoes - Shoedazzle.com
Gold necklace - F21

Jackpot!!!

I have been eyeing these shoes from Aldo FOREVER!!!

Over the weekend I went to the outlet mall here and made my way into the Aldo store. These puppies were on SALE - Score!

Of course, I had to get both the black and natural brown color, they didn't have them in the store, but they can order them for you and it comes with Free Shipping.

I think I seriously have a problem, but I have been dreaming of these shoes since they came out in late May.

And Finally....

The last two stops of the Full Service tour were Dallas and Houston. Of course I had to go to these two shows, they were in Texas!
Thursday night started off with a party at Ghostbar benefitting Susan G. Komen.

Outfit Details: Earrings - F21, Dress - F21 (Faith 21), Pink clutch - Target

That's me in the corner w/my big smile...hanging out after the party at the hotel. I don't typically smoke, but Jon Knight offered me a ciggy....I said yes. oh well.
The next day at the meet & greet...
Outfit details: Dress - F21 (Faith 21), black sandals - Nine West, Earrings - F21
I always try to stand by Joe McIntyre, he's my favorite!
There was an after party after the concert, and here is my quick snap with Joe (not the best picture of me, but I'll take it)!
End of Houston concert on Saturday



The tour ended in Houston and even though I'm sad it's over, I'm so glad I went to all these shows...I've met really great friends who "get" the whole NKOTB thing. I'm not going on the cruise, but if/when they tour again, I'll be at some of those shows as well!

Vegas Baby!

Another stop on my NKOTB Full Service tour...Las Vegas.

Help Me Decide

The last few days of July I finally placed my Shoedazzle.com order. Here is the shoe I chose (Berlin):


So super cute, right? I thought so. But then I got the Shoedazzle.com email earlier this week and wasn't too in love with any of my choices so I hedged my bet and selected the Send me other Choices option (love this!). My other choices included the Cherie shoe from June, but in Black!

What's a girl to do? Should I #1 Keep the Berlin, July choice #2 Keep the Cherie, August choice or #3 Keep them both? (A girl can never have enough black shoes, you know).

I have issues with buying multiples if it's something I really like and I really do like the Cherie shoe and have gotten tons of compliments on them. Let me know what you think!

What I've Been Doing on My Summer Vacation

Uh, no, I don't have a summer vacation...I work all year, but this summer I've had so much fun spending time being a NKOTB "groupie," acting like I was 10 years old again running through a water park, and generally hanging out with friends.


My first NKOTB stop on their Full Service tour was in Cincinnati, Ohio. Originally, we planned on going to the Noblesville, Indiana show on 06/28/09, but a few days before our concert date, one of the girls just happened to search on tickets for the Cincy show and POW!!! we had 4th row pit seats for Cincy. How did that happen....and how were we really going to do this? I call it my Midwest mini-tour. We flew into Chicago on 06/27/09, drove to Indiana (3 hours), stopped in Noblesville, freshened up and got ready for our drive to Cincinnati (2 more hours). It was a lot of driving, most of which I did (I'm a control freak, I can't help it!), but SO worth it! I had no clue that when you go to the Cincinnati venue, you dip into Kentucky for all of 5 minutes...so basically, I visited 4 states in two days (I guess technically 5 since I started out in Texas)! Just to give you a taste, this is how close I was to the stage in Cincinnati.

Yes, that is me and my huge Kool-Aid smile with a sign like I'm 13 years old. My friends were all into the signs and I was like, "uh, no" but when we got to the concert, I tell you, the 13 year old in me took over.


My outfit details:

Brown pleated neck dress - Ann Taylor Loft, Flip flops (not seen) - Old Navy, Turquoise earrings - Forever 21, Smirk - gift from God (ha! ) I'm not at all trying to be sexy, more than anything, I'm making fun of myself, but I thought it was funny, that's all the confetti that showered us at the end of the show




We drove back to Noblesville, IN, got some sleep then did it all again the next day. I didn't get to meet up with Kimberly, but did make a pit stop at H&M, had to take advantage of where I was! Our seats were not great for the Indy concert, but we did get to go to the meet & greet. I love Joe McIntyre!

Outfit Details: Red side tie dress - Forever 21 (Faith 21), Nude heels - Michael Antonio via Shoedazzle.com (they were my August choice too in black!), Jewelry - Forever 21






More NKOTB craziness later, and no, this isn't turning into a NKOTB blog, but I wanted to share my mini tour shenanigans and post some outfits as well. I am starting to get back into taking pictures every day and will post more when I have time. If you're at all interested in seeing my actual concert pictures, please email me and I'll send you my Facebook link.
