31 October 10 - Traveling Scarf


When Kimberly of Fab Finds Under $50 asked who wanted to participate in the next round of the Traveling Scarf, I wanted to try it out! I missed the last two rounds and was hoping I was able to participate. She even helped us out by pointing out the fact that Affordable Scarves was sponsoring the scarf and their new project Scarves.net had videos of 37 ways to wear a scarf!

I literally watched every video for the rectangle long scarf. I really liked the knot row and rosette neck wrap method and those had not been done before. I live in Houston and our fall weather hasn't really started yet. I didn't want to have a scarf wrapped around my neck when the temp was 85 degrees. The scarf has been worn as a one loop scarf, knotted, double looped, a low tie, in a bow, draped then belted, head scarf, and even a shirt (I was actually thinking about this one)! How many more ways could I think of? As a necklace! I've worn a scarf as a necklace before and wanted to try again.

I found the center of the scarf and tied a knot in it, I then separated the other halves and tied a knot on either side of the middle knot. I wanted the "necklace" to not have too much bulk so I twisted the scarf a bit and then tied it in a knot for the back. I then slipped the brooch pin under the middle knot and viola! I hope you like it!


Outfit Details:
White tank - Target
Yellow Cardi - Loft
Grey Jeans - Faith21
Miami Scarf - Affordable Scarves
Grey wedges - Old Navy
Brooch - From Katie
Super close up picture so you can see the scarf as a necklace and the brooch!

16 September 10 - Squeezing It In

It's still hot here in TX so we'll be able to wear sundresses and sandals for at least the next month. I found this black denim dress on sale for $7! How could I not squeeze this in before the temp starts to fall?




Outfit Details:
Black Denim Dress - Ross
Belt - NY and Co
Black canvas peep toe wedges - Payless
Black leather hobo - Loft
Sunnies - Old Navy

I know the picture quality isn't the best, but this was taken on my iphone!

19 July 10 - Oh Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! This tank is a great find over the weekend at Loft's 50% off sale items, it ended up being $10, unfortunately, it's not online anymore. Did you find any great sales this weekend? I spent some time in Loft and then Target! I didn't get this cardigan from Loft, but they did have something very similar to this recently and I think the only difference was the print, Loft's was a zebra stripe, but this is a leaf pattern.


Outfit Details:
Pink and white dotted tank - Loft
Pink leaf print cardigan - Target
Grey pinstripe pants - Old Navy
Grey ruffle T-strap pumps - Target

6 July 10 - Let's Try a Dress

I haven't worn a dress for a while to work because for me, dresses are just so much work. Assets - check, shaved legs - check, hem long enough for office - check, covered bust area - check....dress it is. With pants, I don't have to worry about any of the previously mentioned things. I admire those bloggers and people who don't feel the need to wear Assets/Spanx/something to smooth and suck you in, but I'm just not one of those people. I don't care how flowy the dress or skirt, I'm wearing something under it.

I'm also stepping out of my comfort zone a bit with the flutter sleeves - not exactly sleeveless, but definitely, not much coverage. Depending on where you work, this could be a no-no. But since it's summer and my office is pretty business CASUAL, I'm fine. Since I've put on weight, my arms aren't my favorite body part, but I'm just going to get over it. I know I don't talk about any one's arms unless they are super toned and tight so no one will be giving me a second thought. Sometimes you just have to get over your insecurities and focus on other positive things like these hot pink patent heels. This is the 3rd time in the 5 years I've had these that I'm wearing them. They might be a bit over the top, but I love them!

Outfit Details:
Cami - Faith 21
Dress - Old Navy (from like forever ago)
Pink patent peep toes - Newport News
Gold leaf earrings - Forever 21

17 June 10 - Not Quite Casual Friday

It's Thursday, but here at my office, most people (excluding me) work flex time and typically are somewhat casual on Thursday's as well since some Thursday's are their Friday's (confused yet?). I decided to dress somewhat casual today and the only thing I really absolutely love about the summer heat in TX is wearing gauzy white tops during these super hot months.


Another bad iphone photo, but I really liked my outfit, so I had to do it. I took some close ups once I got to the office (w/my iphone) so you could see the actual colors and details of my outfit. In my outfit picture, my belt is a little higher than my actual waist but I didn't have time to fix that before snapping the pic...I'm out the door and on my way to work w/my iced chai in hand! Have a great day!


Outfit Details:

Nude cami (not seen, but absolutely necessary for a gauzy top!) - AGX
White top - Old Navy
Chambray crops - NY and Co
Shoes - Nine West
Belt - Target
Sunnies - Old Navy
Purse - JCPenney (it's grey)

17 May 10 - Monday

No proper outfit post from yesterday (Monday), but I did snap a quick photo of my shoes. Doesn't leopard print make everything better? It does for me!


I wore navy blue pants, this top which has the best little blue stripe detail (it's no longer available online, but will likely be in your local store), and this cardigan. Yes, it is the very same one I wore last week except a different color...I have a problem with multiples, people! The shoes are from Fashion Bug and I scored them for $5!!!

What are your favorite color combos lately? Here are some of my favorites: neutrals, neutrals, neutrals (off white, white, khaki, army green, gold, super light pink, light grey); navy, white, green (I'm finding myself buying more and more navy and green); and grey, navy, burgundy/maroon (I know this can be more of a fall/winter palette, but I love it).

Remember, there's still time to enter the Fashion to Figure Dress Giveaway...ends this Friday, May 21!

12 May 10 - Dressing My Best!


The ladies over at academichic.com put a post up for bloggers (or anyone really) to switch their thinking and dress their best. Dress your best is where you dress to play up one of your favorite body parts/attributes about yourself instead of trying to hide or camouflage what you deem your "problem" areas.

This post (and lots of mine) is all about my waist! Some would say I have a defined hourglass shape and that's why I love to wear belts as much as I can! My waist can sometimes get lost in an outfit if I have a cardigan on (which I do a lot!) and to remedy that, I wear belts.

Another attribute I really do love about myself is my hair. My hair has always been a main focus of me being me! I get lots of compliments on it and I do really feel my best when my hair is looking great.

This pic is a bit out of focus, but you get the idea. My husband was great to take this picture in the morning, but he takes two and calls it a day...I really need to get a tripod!

Outfit Details
White cami - AGX
Green empire dress - Loft
Navy s/s cardi - Loft
Brown studded belt - Target
Brown studded shoes - Nine West
Gold clover necklace - JCPenney
Looks like Loft is having an additional 30% off sale priced items! Use code: SALE30 and remember to use ebates.com!

06 May 10

When I saw this shirt at NY & Co, I kind of loved it. Upon closer inspection, I really hated it...the colors, etc. I have no idea why then I still got the tank, but now, I really like it! It has potential to be paired with so many colors! Speaking of colors, I have a lot going on today with respect to that, but I think it works.

Outfit Details
Ruffle tank - NY and Co (this just links to the solid colors, but I'm sure there are the printed ones in store)
Cardi - Target
Brown pants - JCPenney (there is almost a herringbone print to them)
Orange peep toes - Payless
Necklace - Loft
Earrings - F21
Bracelet - From Nicaragua
Here's a detail pic of my earrings, bracelet, pants, and shoes...unfortunately the full outfit pic doesn't show all the great colors.
NY & Co is having their 50% off sale again! 50% off everything in the store and online....Happy Shopping!

05 May 10

Not much to say about this outfit except....hmmmm....maybe a better angle for the picture next time? I look totally prego in this picture, I'm not, and I don't think I look pregs in person, but who knows.

I really love this dress, it's super casual/comfortable, but I have to be really careful that I wear something underneath the top part of it...don't want everyone at work getting a free show! When you have a large bust, (IMO) you have to be extra careful what you wear and have to be sure to be covered up at all times while at work. I think, unfortunately, women with large bustlines can't get away with all the scoop neck/v neck tops that everyone else can without having something underneath. It just is what it is sometimes. I typically wear a tank or cami underneath everything, anyway, do you?

Outfit Details
Dress - Ann Taylor Loft, last summer sometime
Beige cami - AGX
Scarf as a belt - Target
Belt - NY and Co
Brown sandals - Nine West
Necklace that you can't see - F21
Had to show the flowers in bloom right outside my door!

03 May 10 - TMI

So, maybe you could move past the weird look I have on my face....or not.

Let's just get the TMI out of the way. This skirt is part of Merona's (Target) Fit Solutions line. I liked the shape of the skirt and figured since I wear Spanx (lie, I wear Assets...same thing though, kind of) under ALL of my dresses or skirts why not just skip that and try this Fit Solutions skirt? YES, I do this...I don't care if it's 100 degrees outside, I will wear them....it's better than lumpy, bumpy. The only time I don't wear them is if I'm wearing tights and then I get the control top ones anyway. Uh.....for me it was a big, fat fail. The lining (assets part) of the skirt is made of nylon and spandex....nylon mostly, and let me tell you nylon rubbing together (here's the TMI part) is just not the best feeling or sound. I know I'm not the only one whose thighs rub together, so I'm over that part, but dang...that nylon hurt me! Thankfully, that day I did not walk around too much, but I will not be wearing this skirt on a super hot day, that's just pain waiting to happen. Plus, the swish, swish, swish of the material rubbing together is just not a good sound. Anyway....other than that, I thought the skirt was cute. Target should really consider making the lining the same material as Sara Blakley makes Assets, just my opinion though.


Outfit Details
Plum Ruffle Tank - Loft (This one is on sale!)
Floral cardi - Loft (sold out online, but you can check your local store)
Black skirt - Target
Black peep toe heels - Macy's

27 April 10

Another try at the iphone picture....hmmmmm....I don't think we're getting any better at it. I have a shaky hand and apparently my husband does too, but I do think if we had natural light, this might have turned out better. Either way, here it is!

Are you loving LOFT as much as I am lately? There's no other place I love to shop as much as LOFT, and when they have sales, boy, do they have sales! I do order most of my items online from them if they're bottoms b/c I wear a larger size than what they typically have in the stores, but LOFT is good about having so many items on sale, there are a few that I frequent to get the most for my dollar.

Today's Outfit:
Brown Tweed/Linen pants - Forth and Towne
Tab Sleeve Peach Cardigan - LOFT
Pink/Peach necklace - NY and Co
Brown Suede Wedges - NineWest
The cardigan and shirt are both on sale at LOFT, the cardigan wasn't online anymore, but I'm sure it's still in stores. I went overboard with my multiple obsession and got this in the peach, pink, black, and grey colors...oops. The necklace from NY and Co is a recent purchase, although it's not online either, I'm sure it's still in stores though.
Have a great day!

15 April 10 Birthday Dinner

I got this dress as part of Loft's 30% off dresses a few weeks back and let me tell you....I went a little off the deep end with the dresses! I really love this one though and thought it was a perfect time to break it out for my birthday dinner. That's right, I'm a tax day baby! My birthday really isn't a big deal to me, but we always go have a special dinner or night out. I did celebrate last weekend with a friend since her bday is just a week before mine. We had a fab time at a local wine bar with a group of our friends. I have to post my dress I wore to that soon. Are birthday's a big deal to you? Do you do anything special or really fun?
I didn't have my camera with me, but who needs one when you have an iphone, right? Well, we'll see.....I think we need some practice! And take a look at these shoes from NineWest...I love them so!

The dress is now on sale for $69.99 and an additional 40% off. All Loft sale items are 40% off and I might have ordered this in black as well...hmmmm. Since it's linen/cotton blend it wrinkles easily, but oh well, it's super cute and I can totally see myself wearing this throughout the summertime as well. Check out this, this, and this that I got during this great sale....many cute dresses for the warm months coming up!
Outfit Details:
Dress - Loft
Shoes - Nine West
Necklace - Charming Charlie
So, yeah, my iphone pics are not the best, that's why I had to grace you with two of them!
I love the look of nude shoes and will be wearing the heck out of these this summer. Looks like this color is sold out on line, but I'm sure you can go to your local store and get those.

10 March 10 - Looks from Last Week

So, it looks like the blog is no different from real life....I'm always a "little" late.

Here's a look from last week and I have a feeling that the tights are going to be going to bed soon since we had so much sun this weekend and it was actually HOT at one point. There's no return to cool weather once it gets hot here in Houston...the summers are scorchers and we don't typically have a Spring season.

I got this scarf along with a couple of others from affordablescarves.com and I knew it would probably be my one and only time to wear it here in Texas. Maybe I can take it on my vacation in California I'm going on in a bit since the temps will still be chilly in the evening and in the mornings. This scarf has the grey/black/white thing going on, but on further inspection there was a tiny bit of blue-green. I wore this on my way to work for some added warmth, but took it off once I got there. No pic of that though.

Outfit Details:

Grey jumper dress - Ann Taylor Loft
Printed cardigan - Target
Black tights - Target
Grey tweed heels - Payless
Grey belt - NY and Co
Scarf - affordablescarves.com (this color is out of stock, but they're having a 15% off winter sale and there are other colors available)
I just realized I'm in line with Kimberly's Outfit Calendar (for today even though I wore this last week, oh, and it's a skirt, not a dress.....uhm...well, you get the picture)

07 March 10 - Weekend Outfit

This is what I wore while running errands over the weekend.

There were lots of sales going on this weekend, and of course, I took advantage of them, did you? I typically do not wear makeup on the weekends, unless I'm going out at night or to a party, event, etc. Is your makeup routine the same on the weekends?
I figured this little jacket would get a lot of wear (I got one in navy as well) later this month while I'm in California on vacation. We're going to LA and Santa Barbara for a friend's wedding. Anyone have any recommendations on a wine tour in Santa Barbara? If so, please leave them in the comments or email me at sigma_veronica at hotmail.com, thanks!

Outfit Details:

Navy pants - Old Navy
Cream twirl embellished shirt - Loft
Anorak - Loft
Scarf - Target
Flip flops - Loft

Another view so you can see the shirt...

04 March 10 - A Day Late

The weather is warming up here in Texas and soon I won't be able to wear all the cardigans I bought over the last few months, so sad....

I scored a super cute moto jacked at NY and Co during lunch today that I can't WAIT to wear this weekend. It's similar to this, but it's not faux leather. I guess I'm behind on that trend, but better late than never I guess. I got a few other shirts that were on sale for $7.99 and $14.99, wow, what a deal! Of course I used my coupon that I received via email for $25 off a total of $75, totally worth it!

I started using picnik.com to touch up my photos and am still trying to get the hang of it. If I look a bit too dark in some pictures, it's probably because I have been experimenting!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Outfit Details:

Pink/grey/black diamond print tank - NY and Co
Pink cardigan with flower applique - NY and Co
Grey pants - Old Navy
Grey faux suede MJ's - Target

Cardigan - Target
Grey belt - NY and Co.
Grey pearl necklace - Forever21 (black ribbon was just some I had left over)

Had a Good Weekend?

Yes, this is a question...to all of you! I hope you had a good weekend, did you?

I spent the weekend with my husband "spring cleaning" our apartment. No amount of spring cleaning can keep up with all of my clothes, shoes, scarves, and jewelry. I really need to get organized! Next up is the jewelry, I think I'm going to save that for this weekend and I have some ideas in store.

I saw this story and thought I would share. I typically sell used clothing at garage sales or I'll just donate it. What do you do with your items, do you consign them or try to sell them at the thrift shop?

I have a couple of outfits posts for this week, so I should get them up in the next few days. Today is the 1st workday of the month, so I am extremely BUSY!

Are you taking advantage of the Ann Taylor Loft sale of spring sweaters that are only $20???!!??? Select styles of course, but I have 3 right now sitting in my checkout bag, still trying to determine if I REALLY need them or want them that much. Remember if you are shopping online, always use ebates.com, you get money back on your purchases, it's kind of a no brainer!

15 February 10

After Christmas, my husband and I (wow, husband...ha!) decided we would get on the same cell phone plan and since I literally had one of the oldest phones I have ever seen someone carrying, we would upgrade to iphones as well. This is my first post with pictures from my iphone, they could be better and since I don't have any picture software at work, I think they still need some help, but you get the idea. I blurred out the background a little b/c I promise you, you don't want to see our ugly wallpaper in the kitchen. We rent and well, we don't really ever change anything while we're renting.

Outfit Details:
Pink cami - F21
Rose print cardi - Target
Grey striped pants - Old Navy
Grey and black shoes - Payless
1st grey necklace - F21
2nd grey necklace - Charming Charlie






To give you an idea of what my old phone that I just now got rid of, here's a pic of something very similar. It still had the cingular logo on it....so, I'm behind, who cares, right?

I hope everyone had a great weekend and Valentine's Day!

What I've Been Up To

Wow, haven't updated the blog in a long, long time! I have still been reading blogs, but have been really busy these last 4 1/2 months since I've been gone. I kind of got "over" taking my picture every day and wearing (what I felt) the same thing all the time. I have a ton of clothes in my closet, but I was just feeling unmotivated, uninspired, and not good enough (in my head) to be updating this blog. So I decided to just take time and figure out what I wanted to do, if anything. I think I am finally going to restart taking pictures, hopefully daily and then updating my blog as time permits. Thanks for the emails and comments wondering where I was!

So, over my "break" here's a few things that happened:

1. My pc got a major virus
2. Got my pc fixed
3. Been working on a MAJOR project at work and working some long hours
4. Got engaged!
5. Got to go onstage with Donnie Wahlberg!!! (of NKOTB)
6. Got married! (VERY short engagement...all of 2 weeks)
7. My sister came to visit and had fun visiting with her.
8. Holiday time...parties, family, friends.
9. My pc got another major virus
10. Got my pc fixed, and it's like new again. (and yes, I had virus protection, etc both times it f'ed up)

That's about it!

Here's a picture of the day I got married. Dress from Nordstrom, Shoes from Nine West, jewelry borrowed.

Long Overdue

Hi Everyone!

I know it's been FOREVER since I updated my blog, but I wanted to post something that was VERY long overdue.

I was contacted by the lovely people at GlassesUSA to see if I'd like to try a pair of their eyeglasses, and of course I said yes! I've been wearing glasses since I was in high school (a long time ago) and now wear contacts, but on those days that my eyes are bothering me or I just want to take a break, I do wear glasses. I hadn't updated my glasses for a while, so this came at the perfect time!

I used the link to visit the website, and I can't tell you how very impressed I was with the selection of affordable and stylish prescription glasses for both men and women. With the affordable prices online, you can afford to purchase more than one pair to go with your many outfits! Not only does GlassesUSA provide a variety of styles, they want you to be happy with your purchase and have written a couple of articles that showcase what frames may flatter your style and how to pick out the perfect pair of frames to highlight your face.

You can start treating your glasses more of an accessory instead of a necessity with the many stylish eyeglass frames at GlassesUSA. The great people over at GlassesUSA have extended a coupon code to all Everyday Wear readers. You can get 5% off of your purchase with them! Use code: Mommy5 to receive this discount!

I just wanted to also extend my apology to the great people over at GlassesUSA, I agreed to review the glasses some time ago, but am just now posting this review.
