Just a quick little post on what I’m wearing today.

I really need to wear this Frances cami in the Indigo print but alas, today is not the day.

Cami: J Crew Factory Store
Cardigan: J Crew
Jeans: J Crew Denim Minnie’s
Boots: Steve Madden

So I changed into something more practical for the day and evening soccer game.

Tee: J Crew Vintage Bateau 
Scarf: J Crew Factory Store

Have a great day!

This month has been so busy for me and I have lots to do the rest of it too. I have guests this weekend and the house is a wreck. It doesn’t matter how long I’m gone for work travel, Husband and The Boy become useless. Dishes aren’t done, clothes aren’t picked up, trash/recycling isn’t taken out. So now I have all that to do plus actually clean the house. BOYS ARE MESSY!

Here are my OOTDs from the past two days.

Top: J Crew Silk Tiered Cami in Toffee
Cardigan: (not pictured) J Crew Scalloped Zipper Cardi
Pants: J Crew Denim Minnie
Shoes: Brass Tack Wedges
Top: J Crew Outlet (orange and white stripes)
Pants: Express Denim
Belt: J Crew
Shoes: J Crew 
Nail Polish: Essie Chinchilly
I bought these shoes from jcbellemarie via the JCA Exchange. This is the first time I was able to wear them and I was surprised at how comfortable they are. She has them too so we are shoe twins. Thanks jcbellemarie!!

Off to clean – Have a great day!!

We’ve been having some beautiful, 70+ degree weather the past few days. Perfect for shorts and light sweater layering.

Here’s the Polyvore.


I wasn’t sure the top and color of the shorts would work together but it’s growing on me. I also wasn’t originally sure about the shoes but decided on the flats for the day. The shorts were in my store last week and are now on the website.
Here’s my OOTD from Tuesday.
AND, I went to the salon on Saturday to get my haircut and some highlights.

Have a GREAT day!

I was in my Anthropologie store making some returns and saw the Off-the-Tie-Rack blouse styled with a sweater. I absolutely loved it. I’ve been wanting to wear the blouse but the weather is just not co-operating. Now, of course, you are thinking “A sweater would be nice over it during the Spring.” but it was the WAY it was styled. Just watch…

Here’s the Polyvore.

Here is how it is online. I wrapped the sash around one more time so the bow is smaller on me.

Here is how the SA told me to tie the bow. Just a simple knot.

Here is the way it was styled yesterday.

They used a shawl cardigan but since I already had a long J Crew cardi I saw no need (yay!) to buy the one they used – as tempting as it was.

Since it is a bit windy I added the Eden blazer. They are very convenient for layering and grabbing at the last minute when you’re going out the door. I would get another but I have the Ecole in the Brown and my Wool Schoolboy in Redwood should be coming today.

I had some success yesterday with the boy. I bought him “adult” jeans at American Eagle and not only did they fit but he liked the style and wash! AND…today I got him to wear a belt. He has this pair, his favorite, that he has been wearing EVERY.SINGLE.DAY! He washes them at least once during the week but he walked out of the house yesterday with his “pants on the ground”. And, of course, the bus was just about to show up so it was either 1) Get after him and make him change which would mean he would miss the bus and I’d have to take him or 2) Let it go for one more day. I let it go. He’s taller than me and has a deep voice now so I pick my battles. ;o)

Have a great day!


Here’s my OOTD for today. It’s different from my original Polyvore I created for today because the rain stopped and the sun came out, even though it’s still cold…and windy.

Sweater: J Crew Dolce Shawl Popover in Light Pewter
Tee: J Crew Rosette in Light Pewter
L/S Tee: J Crew F/S in White
Jeans: J Crew Denim Minnie Pant
Boots: Nine West Jemonia (2007)
I forgot how much I like these boots and I couldn’t wait to wear these Denim Minnies!
