Spring Has Sprung

Posted on: March 31, 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I have some hope that Spring is upon us as the temperatures Sunday were about 60 and due for 70 tomorrow! The trees are all starting to bud!

 This is my first look after the Take One, Pass It On Challenge, which was fun, but I lost inspiration and decided I was ready to move on. 

IMG_2917I think I nailed the feeling of Spring with this look!

It was cloudy and spitting rain so no need for sunglasses today!  This pink blouse is the one I bought on Friday when I went out thrifting and I know will become a versatile piece in my wardrobe.  I am also wearing a new vest that I purchased on ebay in my quest to add vests into my style…  Up until this point I only owned one brown faux fur one.  Stay tuned as I have a great black  DKNY one I purchased via ebay as well and of course my much desired moto one from F21 that I showed on Saturday’s Lucky Find post.

I think my favorite part of this look has to be my Aerosoles ballet flats because they are cute, but also have enough padding to be comfortable.  I bought 4 pairs in different styles on a great sale in early fall  when they were on sale for just $19.99, but for one day only had an extra 25% off sale.  I only mention this to educate you if you are unaware, that signing up for e-mail alerts from your favorite brands or stores does pay off.   One of my favorite store is Steinmart and they send me e-mail coupons all the time for an extra 40%  off clearance items.  At Christmas time I was able to pick up summer pants and capris using that coupon and paid $4 to $5 for them.

Dear Readers, What are  your special ways to save on your fashion items?  As a mother of four, I have to create my style in create my style in a savvy way, but don’t mind that as I love the thrill of a deal!  I welcome and appreciate your comments!  

Linking up today with Watch What I am Wearing and Visble Monday and Monday Bloom.  I highly recommend you explore some of the lovely ladies !

Gratitude:  I am grateful that it is Spring Break and things are easy and fun with no real bedtimes or schedules to keep!  I am grateful that my friend asked me to write her a recommendation letter, as it was my honor to do.  I am grateful  for a dryer to replace my current one that is not heating up… I am grateful to my oldest son for running errands for me.  I am grateful for time with my family and the Easter holiday to remind us of what is important.

Look at you, wearing pink as well I see! Isn’t it just a great, cheerful color?
I save by buying trendier pieces only when they are deeply discounted. I’ll pay more for anchor pieces that will last several years or more.

You look so pretty in pink today, Tracey. I am always looking for a very comfortable flat, so thanks for the tip! And for sharing with Visible Monday too.

Oh my gosh! I LOVE this pink and white with those darling little ballet flats! I must do a pink and white combo soon. So pretty.

Thank you and you would look great in that color combo…

Your pink shoes definitely are cute! I love this spring inspired look. We might get a hint of spring later this week 🙂

Great way to bring in Spring. You look lovely in the white and soft pink. I wish I could give you ways I save on my fashion deals but I am soooo bad at this. I read all these blogs of you cute ladies that find these great deals and look fantastic in them and I just shake my head. (probably a good thing my husband doesn’t read these,lol).

thanks for the laugh, yes husband’s should be kept in the dark about some things!

Enjoy your spring fling with pink! And the great weather. You deserve some lovely weather.

My favorite way to save on fashion items is to look at TJ Max often! If I keep a plan in mind, and check back with them often, I usually find just what I want there. We have so few places to shop at all, but our little store here is a good one.

TJ Max is a favorite of mine and you are smart in your description of going there often as their inventory changes and it means a better shot at getting things on your wish list..
