Getting Caught Up

Posted on: April 8, 2016

I have two outfits for you today, 

as the cooler weather came back in for this week.  


I went in search of a new pair of floral pants as my other ones 

now have a broken zipper, truth be told I may still wear them with 

tunic tops as I love them so much.  

I found this pair of floral jogger style pants at F21  on sale for just $10. 

I bought the large as they are junior sizes and they were perfect… 


Funny story about this sweater…

I’ve had it for awhile but when it arrived in the mail and I saw it was terry cloth material, 

I wasn’t sure I liked it, but instanstly began wearing it as a bathrobe in the morning…

Yesterday, I just had to try it for some pattern mixing and now am sold on wearing it again. 

My top is Isaac Mizrahi peplum, I own in three colors and my shoes are from TjJ Maxx new this season.


I wore my Old Navy Joggers with striped Ann Taylor top

and a open kimono topper for Wednesday,

which was a day of taking my son to his bowling league, home for one hour and

then back out to a bowling clinic.   


My shoes are classic Aerosoles mules that I’ve had for a few years 

and whether they are on trend or not, I love and have had similar style for years that 

I keep replacing when they get worn out.  

We all probably have a fondness for one type of shoe and this is mine , along with espadrille wedges. 

Dear Readers, Wishing you all a fabulous weekend! 

Ours will be filled with City Bowling Tournaments on Saturday and Sunday.

It will be a great time filled with family, friends and fun!  


I am grateful that my son is excited about his bowling tournament and not feeling too stressed. 

I am grateful that my 20 year old is coming home tonight to be here for the weekend to support his brother. 

I am grateful that my son chose a college so close to allow him to come home more often. 

I am grateful for a fun conversation with my daughter yesterday and despite her awful day, she interupted her complaints to say, ” But the good news is I realized I am a great counselor and had sucess today!”   (what more could a mother want for her daughter who is about to graduate and come home to study to take state liscensing test) 

I am grateful for Facebook and private chats from friends that keep me going on stressful days!

Well the striped cardigan doesn’t look terry cloth in the pictures—but I can totally relate! I think you’re smart to have at least used it as a bathrobe—instead of not wearing it at all!! (besides isn’t lingerie the new trend—and bathrobes are kinda like lingerie!!)

Tracey, you look good in all kimonos and wedge heels! :-). I also like your haircut.

Thank you! I really needed that haircut as I was getting so frustrated with it..

Adore the floral pants and so glad to hear there are other moms who find cute things at Forever21! The shop does give me the shakes is so big and so cluttered and so full — that level of disorganization makes me crazy, BUT it’s always worth a quick breeze-thu as nine times out of ten I will find something I like..for a great price! Have fun with the bowling there’s something I am really bad at- wow.. I rarely crack 100, but I’m usually struggling with kids’ balls that my fingers don’t fit into because the others are too heavy.

Lol, my ADD goes nuts in F21 so I rarely go in anymore. I know my sizes there now so shop online. Bowling went incredible, after bowling 6 games he is now napping!

SIX GAMES! wow- do the kids ever get sore elbows or anything from the repetitive motion?

His thumb gets sore…. which happens a lot to kids, but not too bad. Bowlers have more issues with wrists as well, but his has been fine. He is worn out for the rest of the day and evening.
