Since hubby was still recovering from surgery he couldn’t take me to lunch or dinner for my birthday. That didn’t stop me though. The boy and I went to Mariposa Cafe at Neiman’s and then I picked up dinner from PF Chang’s. For lunch (and a little NM shopping) I wore my Jakarta mini and my Rosette Tee with my Corso Como Espadrilles. I think the Rosette’s and the swirly Jakarta print were a good fit together. You tell me if it went together. (I really need to do Polyvore.)
I finished the Birthday off with cake and my favorite wine, Santa Margherita Pino Grigio. And I saw the new fawns. They are over a week old and have grown a lot. They were half this size last week. (Sorry for the crappy image but when I went outside the momma and friends were 5 feet from me wanting food.)
They are still cuties.
J Crew & Ebay, of course…I’m going on a shopping ban next week. I’ll only spend money on new clothes, shoes or accessories if I have been given it (birthday is tomorrow) or from sells on ebay. Otherwise, no más compras para esta chica. (Sounds better in Spanish, I think.) Self-imposed, yes…but also because hubby is on medical leave starting today and will be home for at least three weeks. Can’t have him asking “Who’s that?” when the UPS guy comes knocking, can I?
I received my latest (and LAST!) J Crew order today along with some ebay purchases (soaps from B&BW).
Silk Indigo Floral Blouse – Sz 8
I really loved the print on this the first time I saw it online. The skirt looks gorgeous too but I think I’ll get more use out of the blouse. I purchased a size up since I noticed the armholes on the model online looked a bit small and I’m glad I did. It does fit a little small in the underarm area. The print was almost like the one online. I know sometimes it “shifts” around.
Rosette Tee in Pewter – Sz M
Slub cotton twisted V-Neck Tee
I bought this in the tan color and it went well with my Delfine Pencil Skirt. I love green and this color was too pretty to pass up. IRL it looks just as pretty.
I purchased this in-store last week.
Dual Rose Ribbon Tee in Gray
I originally saw this on JCBelleMarie in the Blue and White. I didn’t like the look or feel of the tee in those colors but the gray seems nicer, softer even.
On another note, I am on my 5th week of South Beach and have reached my goal of losing 10 pounds by my birthday (tomorrow/30th). I’m actually holding steady at 10 lbs. I still have more to lose but I have noticed all my shorts (mostly J Crew) are fitting a little looser. I purchased a pair of the tweed Bermuda’s (not listed online) in a 10 since the leg and booty made it run 2 sizes too small and it fits loose now. Today I also started taking the Bragg’s ACV, which I first heard about here. The taste, yucky; but I drank all I was supposed too. The water really should be cold like Gigi said. It does make a difference.
Tomorrow, I’m having lunch at the Mariposa cafe at Neiman’s with my son. Can’t wait! I’ll try to stay away from the Shoe Salon but it may be hard since the sale is still going on.
