Challenge -Day 3

Posted on: June 18, 2014

I really am enjoying this Summer Style Me Pretty Challenge..

Why you ask???  Well having an e-mail every night that gives you an outfit suggestion relieves a fashion blogger from the hard work of choosing an outfit and actually frees up some valuable time…

After all this is my Summer of Memory Making before

my son heads off to VCU and my daughter heads off to grad school at BC!

Time is precious these days..

I hope you don’t get sick of me saying this…

Linking Up with Tres Chic Thursday….


I began this day wearing khaki linen capris, but while picking up the house, I dropped a cup that had rootbeer in it an splashed it all over the back of my legs…

Good thing I had a khaki skirt…. funny thing about this skirt it is by Chaus and I had one in my preweight loss size…

I missed it so much that I stalked Ebay and when a size 6 showed up I bought it right away!  


Like my new Sunglasses?

My son received these by Knockaround in his Gradfest gift bag.


It was fun to wear the same purse two days in a row!  

I only bought a few things for this Challenge and these metallic sandals from Payless was the first purchase…

And they work perfectly for my broken toe… 

I love that you don’t even notice my taped toe due to the nude colored first aid tape they have these days!


I added the hat for extra protection on this hot day that got to 104 with the heat index! 

I like the way the hat bookends the tan skirt…

This utility vest is one  I thrifted and if you know my blog, I love a vest over a tank top, but I also like the added vertical lines of the open vest against the horizontal stripes to break them up and produce a more slimming look…

Dear Readers, have you ever used Ebay to find an item that you loved and wanted another one, or needed a different size for?

I think it’s a wonderful use of Ebay…

In case you haven’t heard: Payless has all sandals on sale, plus a BOGO offer and an additional 10% off on their website.

I feel I should also mention I wasn’t in the mood for Weight Management Wednesday as I struggle to find ways to keep the momentum of exercize going with a broken toe… The fantastic planking and plank jacks that were making marvelous work on my abs has to be suspended as I can’t get on my toes…. doing other ab work , but none as effective….I can’t even do the ones I love from Melt it off with Mitch….


I am grateful the homeschool bowling was cancelled as I would have been tempted to bowl ,

not a good idea with my broken toe…

I am grateful that I made pasta salad yesterday and had left overs today!

Who wants to cook in this heat?

I am grateful that I joined a homeschool group on Facebook and followed a recommendation for 

Exploration Education

and ordered a Science Program to do over the Summer for my upcoming 9th grader!

I am grateful that applying the Jergens tanning lotion with the cotton quitled disposable ovals from the dollar store, seemed to have worked to give a very even tan with no extras around the ankles, knees, elbows or the hands…

(Didn’t reapply today, but will tomorrow and will keep you posted)

Very cute, Tracey. I like the bright colors and stripes paired with your khaki. The hat is great, too.

Such a great color splash!
