Please Excuse My Regularly Scheduled Programming…

Posted on: June 13, 2013

So, this morning started of with unexpected chaos( no worries,nothing big) , which resulted in fast dressing and getting out the door… So my planned outfit for the day went to the wayside in lieu of something appropriate for my day and the heat….

Linking up today with Look What I Got

IMG_0407So, not a stripe in sight, but this is my real life….I am wearing a pair of my newly thrifted shorts, which I intended to show for MY LUCKY FINDS on Friday… They are by Merona and were just $3.99. I realized that in rebuilding a wardrobe for my weight loss, that I had sorely left out shorts …Vest and Purse are also thrifted.  I never realized how much I rely on Navy as a color in my warm weather dressing….It makes perfect sense for me to get so much use out of my blue Mootsie Tootsie sandals….


I was happy to see that April’s Lucky Magazine Featured “Instant Good Hair Day!” showing cloth headbands like this.  In fact  they  called it ” one part Old Hollywood glam, one part East Village cool, these instant chicifiers for hair ruled spring runways from Marc Jacobs to Dolce & Gobbana.”   My Necklace is a real shell with sterling silver wrapped around the edges and was purchased many years ago when I had my store and went to an industry conference.  It remains a favorite of summer. 


Dear Readers, Since I commited myself to showing stripes this week , I hope you won’t be disappointed if my dress form, “Ruby” stands in to show what I would have worn if  my day had been less hectic..


and a close-up  of my shoes to show the eyelet material..


. Do you notice a color that is more common in your summer wardrobe, that kind of sneaked up on you like the realization about Navy has for me?  If so what color?  If not , do you have a color that is more common during warm months that you are fully aware of?  Share away, your comments are welcomed and appreciated!  


I am grateful that I was able to keep my schedule for homeschool testing and to find some  creative wrting prompts for our summer writing.   

I am grateful for the much needed ear today and compassion as I had a hormonal melt down… not a common thing for me..

I am grateful that I liked these photos and outfit despite breaking my stride to do stripes. 

I am grateful for the support regarding my weight loss journey and goals. 

I am grateful to my youngest who took my pictures barefoot and stood on hot pavement (his choice I would have preferred shoes…)

I reallylike your vest. The design on it is really pretty and is perfect with your khaki shorts. Hope your day is less hectic!

Thanks! This vest is one of my favorites among those I’ve been collecting to use as completer pieces for summer.

Very cute khaki-navy outfit. Love that skirt with the chambray top. Can’t wait to see you wear it.

I’ve had a few of those meltdowns myself so I feel your pain. In fact, I had one just last week in front of my mil! Ugh! I guess most women have experience with them at some point or another. Keep your chin up. You’re doing great.

thank you! mine was to my daughter who wants to be a therapist, so gave her some practice… but hate that the overwhelming feelings just poured out and I couldn’t stop them… she was good about it…

Great deal on the shorts! My outfits often change depending on what kind of morning I have…haha. Thanks for linking up!
