Polka Dots and Stripes

Posted on: December 20, 2013

Lots to do and running errands that took longer than planned, left me no choice, but to take picture after the sunset…


I loved this outfit as the bronze metallic jeans added to the edginess despite my flat riding boots.

I am debuting these pants by Jennier Lopez’s line for Kohl’s that I bought on clearance in September.

I originally thought these pants would be for date nights, but realized that was silly and limiting ! 


I love the creme moto(F21) and my hat  to lighten up the darkness of the browns. 

The Loft striped sweater is a good weight and so warm. I really love thrifting things from the Loft brand as they are always in such great, like new condition. 


I tied this scarf together at the ends to make it a unity scarf.  I made sure to cover the knot by pulling the other circle over top of it . 


I love the combo of the polka dots and stripes...

Dear Readers, I got a little scare today when my dear husband popped home while I was out shopping cause a present for him had come this morning and I had left it on the bed in my room before I left.  I did cover it with a blanket and he is not a peeker so pretty sure he didn’t see it.  I did tell him no more coming home without calling until after Christmas.  You see his new job allows him several free hours in the afternoons and without my knowledge a week or so ago, he was texting my son and stopped by where I had a present in the shopping cart for him. Imagine my surprise when he came  up and saw it… I actually teared up because it’s not often I surprise him and it was ruined… Most times he has an idea of gifts and this one he didn’t … Oh well, I’ll take this over the hours he worked at his previous job…

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and hope you have time for some fun and laughter despite getting ready for Christmas, if that’s something you celebrate...


I am grateful that my new  stove will be here Today!!!

I am grateful that I am a cool mom and am allowing my senior in high school skip school today , as all week he’s had one class with a test and then the others just busy work or movies.  

I am grateful that my senior received and e-mail today that he was accepted to his second choice school. 

I am grateful that my daughter is done with the extensive training of her new job and is now going to be pulling in more money- $25 per hour, not bad for 22 year old waiting to go to grad school. 

I am grateful for my daughter volunteering to bake banana bread with the over ripe bananas as I don’t have the energy today. 

I am grateful for the fun and laughter my teen boys and I had watching IHeartRadio special where I danced and even attempted twerking for the first time.  My boys ran from the room embarrassed, so I guess I did it pretty well…

Too bad about the ruined surprise. I love to surprise people with gifts too and get upset if the surprise is ruined. I like to be surprised too and can’t get others on board with that one…

I love, love, love this outfit! Every single piece!

Sorry about the surprise. My husband is hard to surprise…so I know when you find that perfect gift it sucks for them to find out.

Love the stripes/pattern combo. You look like you’re definitely ready for a spin on a motorbike.
I have to take my photos right after I get ready in the mornings. By nightfall I feel deflated and don’t feel like touching up my makeup. haha

Oh yes the makeup touch up is a real pain in the neck…
