Posts Tagged ‘Leather Jacket

After searching for 3 years for the perfect black leather jacket and finally finding it, 

I am trying to get in a few more wearrings of it before the warmer temperatures

arriive and make that impossible. 


With the quilt detainling of this Isaac Mizrahi leather  jacket, 

I am loving it with a solid top rather than my love of prints. 

On Qvc the color listed for this jacket is Dark Charcoal and also comes in Grove Green 


A closer look at the quilting detail of this beloved jacket. 


My purple top and purse are both by Iman via Hsn . 

The top can be found HERE in several colors. 

My purse is also in several colors and can be found HERE 


I bought these beautiful earrings from TJ maxx in both purple and green , 

they are no longer available and I am so glad I scored these. 


My necklace was a gift from a

Style Sister for the Christmas 

Gift Exchange 


My Jeans are Diane Gilman, I feel like a broken record about her jeans, 

but love them and these Flared button detailed onessold out .

 HERE is what the line currently has available. 

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. My house is full as it’s Spring Break time. 

I am loving it and the time , laughter, joking and fun. 

I will spend a lot of this week sewing  my daughter’s costume for her Anime convention in Boston. 


I am grateful for time as a family and seeing the light in the eyes of my youngest , to have his siblings home. 

I am grateful that I thought to call a family meeting and plan out this weeks menu with input from everyone on ideas of something they love, but don’t make themselves. 

I am grateful for the help of my husband in helping to create the pattern for our daughter’s costume , as he is much more detailed and precise and perfect for the job.  I love that my daughter has us all wanting to help with her costume. 

I am grateful for the anticipation and fun leading up to our going to the Jimmy Buffet concert in April. I hope I don’t regret taking my almost 16 year old on this zany party event… 


I was so busy running errands for the Ireland trip yesterday that I never got outfit photos…

I decided it was time to share my lust for Boston Proper Catalog

that I get in the mail on a regular basis and drool over…

If you are interested in seeing pictures I post when I am in Ireland for almost three weeks , 

please like my Facebook Page as I will be posting there not on my blog…

Leather Jacket -$298

I never bought the black leather I promised myself when I reached goal weight…

Perhaps I’ll point DH in this direction…

This Sweater Coat comes in 3 colors, I love them all…$129

I think my favorite is the black, though…

A peplum cardigan in this color, black and navy – $89

With my love of femininity in my style, this would be a great addition. 

I am considering the Navy one.

I am lacking in a basic black dress and this

Fit n Flare with jersey top and scuba skirt might just be the answer!

I’ve been looking for a nice boho style belt and this one is fabulous 

Dear Readers, After having to redo an entire wardrobe due to weight loss and now moving forward in the same size for over a year, I feel more confident in making bigger ticket price purchases.  I plan to start a new budget for myself of $250 per month and will be posting monthly how I choose to use those funds. I am looking forward to sticking to a budget and seeing what I do with it.  In all honesty I probably have spent this much or more monthly if you include shoes and purse purchases, but have not kept track.  I really didn’t want to know what I was spending, but now I want to be more responsible and purposeful.  Some months I may buy one key piece others I may by a few basics.  

Before I begin this I plan to do a closet purge of some items that I thrifted and no longer want or purchase mistakes like we all make.  

I look forward to starting all this once I return from Ireland. so perhaps November!


I am so grateful that we found the best travel neck pillows at TJ Maxx..  (we got the last two) pictured below , but we have them in red for $19.99

I often say little things make me happy and you should have seen how giddy I was about these.. They are so soft and you can cinch them in to fit tighter.  The pictured one is from Amazon for $39.99

I am grateful that my husband succeeded in finding two more pairs of jeans, one in dark grey and one tan to complete the pants he needed for the trip

I am grateful for the fun we had running our errands, accompanied by our one remaining child at home…

I am grateful for how this upcoming trip of a lifetime is making me feel close to my mother, understanding how she felt about her trip to Scotland. 

I am grateful that the paycheck my husband receives while away in Ireland will be enough to pay our November Bills and he still has 5 days to make it more…
