Here are some quick outfit posts from this week. We have been having great 85 degree weather here in SATX. Wonderful weather for Fiesta.

J Crew Cecilia Dress – Monday work-from-home…I also had an HOA board meeting to attend.

Worn with J Crew Snakeskin Studded Reese Sandals

Forever 21 One Shoulder Maxi Dress – Super casual work-from-home-day

I wore one of my J Crew Frances Cami’s on Wednesday for another office visit/training. This color is so rich and beautiful. My stylist was able to squeeze me in first thing to get my haircut. I was trying to hold out to 12 weeks but my hair was getting pretty thick and un-manageable so I caved and called for the next available appointment. I feel so much better now.

And here’s what I wore Thursday.
J Crew Factory Bootcut Capri Jeans

The Boy is off from school today due to the Battle of Flowers Parade. Can you believe it? All the school districts in this city are closed today for a parade! The main reason is because so many student groups are participating in the parade that it made more sense to give all the kids the day off as opposed to skewing their attendance records. Anyway, he’s invited 5 of his friends over to work on a video project and “test” out the pool for the season.

Have a wonderful day! Oh…and go check out Pam’s post on the Fiesta Royal Court dresses. They are so beautiful.

Here are my IRL pics of my outfit from Saturday night.
I got my haircut that morning and went crazy short in the back. My hair has all kinds of cowlicks back there and my stylist hates dealing with them. It’s funny hearing him grumble when he gets to them. He finally he had enough of them over the years and decided to whack it all off. I’m glad he did because I wasn’t bothered by the ruffle around the neck on the Frances cami.
REO Speedwagon played so it was great to remember all those songs from my teenage years. We had a lot of fun.
Have a great afternoon and don’t forget about my GIVEAWAY!

~Yes, that is my “Grinch” Christmas Tree behind me. We found it at a cute little home boutique in Knoxville two years ago. We got rid of our 6 ft tree and brought this little green “Grinchy” tree home with us. I love it. Sometimes I wish I had a big tree to decorate with ribbon and silver and lots of lights but I like to keep things simple and Husband is very practical so it works for us.

The neighborhood ladies Christmas Lunch is today and this is what I’m wearing. I love the Frances cami in this Moroccan Blue and I was finally able to purchase the Constellation Cardi on ebay. The pants are actually some cropped wide leg wool pants from the Gap a few years ago and I’m finishing off the outfit with my new Loubies.


So I saw this on M&M’s Mommy’s polyvore and forgot all about posting an IRL. So here it is…

Full pic…

Can I be a J Crew model? I’m rockin’ the socks w/heels.

Full ruffled collar…Mandarin collar…

I kind of actually like this. I have a few other v-neck/boyfriend tees and it’s certainly similar to using a V-Neck sweater/cardi with the Frances (or Victoria). What do you think?

I received my Wool Pencil Skirt today and am very happy but also slightly disappointed. I ordered a size 6 and the length is at least 3 inches, maybe 4 past my knees. Boo Hoo! I’ll have to get it altered. Being on the lower end of the 5 foot range in height I should be used to getting alterations but I just wish things would fit just right every time.

Here it is…

Close up…

With the Dark Slate Frances Cami

Dark Slate Frances Cami & Evening Primrose sweater

Deep Rose Frances Cami & Evening Primrose sweater

Perfect Shirt – I really like this look.

“Altered” – This is about where I would like this skirt to be.

Now here’s my dilemma…SHOES! I can’t believe it. J Crew has it with the Spencer Patent-Trimmed Suede Mary Janes in Chalkboard (Gray). (And, I just sold some gray suede mary-janes on ebay. Oh well, they didn’t fit right anyway.)

So below I have the skirt paired with my Python Kitten Heel Louboutin’s and then with my Wall Street Louboutin’s.

I guess that’s a great excuse to Buy the Shoes!
