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!

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
