My Lucky Finds

Posted on: July 25, 2013

I  don’t know what is wrong with me, but we are only halfway through Summer and I am bored with summer dressing… I was afraid this would happen since in the colder temps I became aware that my happiness factor increased with the addition of edgier pieces ( for a middle aged woman) such as moto jackets, boots or shooties with skirts.

 Unfortunately these temps don’t leave much room for such creativity and I am craving it… Being a person who looks for solutions,  I decided to shop some clearance sales and headed to the Kohl’s website… If I can’t wear winter fun clothes, I can shop for them…

ELLE Paisley Skinny Corduroy Pants

Paisley Skinny Cords  for just $9.60

Since burgundy it still going to be in for this fall/winter season I couldn’t resist these at that price!

Jennifer Lopez Coated Straight-Leg Jeans

Coated Jeans by Jennifer Lopez  for just $ 12.80

I wish these were skinny’s instead of straight legged, but willing to give them a shot .  I so wanted coated jeans last fall but with so much to replace due to my weight loss they just didn’t make it into the budget.

Rock and Republic Banshee Plaid Skinny Crop Jeans

Plaid Skinny Jeans by  Rock Republic for just $17.60

The word is that plaid is going to be really big for this upcoming Fall and I loved these and can’t wait to pair them with black jacket and booties !

And I also found these skirts on Ebay!

Ralph Lauren Kelly Green A Line Chino Skirt 6 | eBay

 I love this green Ralph Lauren A-line for just $8.77 (including shipping) , which is on it’s way and will have it’s debut soon! 

Womens Skirt Size 6 Kenneth Cole Blue Black Purple Summer Skirt EUC | eBay

This Kenneth Cole  was just $5.90 (incl. shipping) , arrived and is perfect!  I tried styling it with both my burgundy moto and newest grey jacket for winter and loved them both with it!

Dear Readers,  I think I need to figure out how to get back into having fun with summer styles, but this week, it was great to take a break and think of winter… Before I know it the magazines filled with all the Fall trends will be here and I can delve more into that!  I think I need to come up with some kind of challenge to keep my spirits up for the next few weeks… Maybe I will have to look at some Pinterest Inspirations or find a piece to style several ways… Will think of something over the weekend!  



I am grateful that my 17 year old was only joking when he called and told me he had bought a cat today!  

I am grateful that I spent the day in my new workout gear and worked out for the first time since the AC problem…

I am grateful that my hair appoinment is finally here and I will be there Thursday morning!

I am grateful that my daughter kept 3 out of the 4 items I bought for her recently!!!

As much as I love fall fashion, I do not want summer to go away just quite yet. I have so many things that I haven’t worn yet. My goal in the last month has been to wear things that haven’t been worn yet this summer. Plus, Pinterest always helps with inspiration.

You will find that your green skirt is so versatile. I love my green pencil skirt and never knew how many times I could remix it. Can’t wait to see your new hair!

I just need to start playing more in my closet.. I think my problem is wearing so many skrits and not mixing up the silhouettes is starting to get to me…My hair came out wonderfully and can’t wait to show it off tomorrow!

I like all of your finds! Such great deals. I’m not ready for fall; I love summer! Besides, I’m a teacher, and I want my summer to last a long time!! 🙂

Of course as a teacher is must feel like summer is not long enough and at his point you are just getting settled into a new rythym. You deserve the break for sure! What age do you teach?

Summers always go by so fast! I am a part-time Title I teacher for kindergartners. I taught kindergarten for many years as well as 2nd and 4th grades, although my heart belongs to the little ones. They are so much fun, so excited to be at school and to learn.

I miss your Pinterest challenge!

thanks, don’t know if there are that many summer ones, but will check it out!
