WEAR WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

YES! This dress is old. This is an Old Navy inspired outfit that I have had for years but still believe it holds up. Timeless. Stands the test of time. However you word it, I love the dress it makes me feel feminine. Maybe it's not that old, I'm just that old I don't remember things anymore, but I know it's not this year up to date. They put out an ad eons ago and I loved the outfit. I already owned an olive green jacket and just needed the dress. So I bought it. Paired the jacket with the dress and voilĂ , love it. I really do love the look of the olive green with the yellow and grey. And I love yellow and grey together. The necklace is a daughter creation. Yes, my daughter made it for me, she is so talented! I wanted a long layered necklace that was affordable so I went and picked the charms I wanted and she made it for me. She's so good! 

Now I know you are all wondering, is that a slip showing? Is that suppose to look like that? It's the under dress dress and I don't know. I think I may have put it through the dryer and the outside part shrank a little. Does that mean I can't wear the dress anymore? Well I don't think so or I wouldn't be wearing it now would I? If I threw away every piece of clothing I ripped, stained, or shrunk in the wash I probably wouldn't have anything to wear lol. But why put it on a blog post? Cause I still love the outfit and think it adds character ;) yea that's it. And I want all of you to know that no matter what anyone says or thinks, if you love it and want to wear it....WEAR IT! You rock that outfit with the "slip" showing! If it makes you happy, then by all means let it make you happy. Don't let other people steal your joy.

WHITE JEAN CAPRIS

Guess what day it is? A new Sweet Caroline Boutique post day!!! YAY! If you don't already know I have cooperated with Sweet Caroline Boutique to style pieces of beautiful clothing from her boutique. Today we are pairing this gorgeous set of Antigua Earrings with two of the {Curvy} SC Camis Coral & Navy I had a reader ask me once where I get my long layering tanks...this will be the place from now on. Not only are they perfect for layering, having that extra long length to them(also meaning you can shorten them by "ruching"/bunching, them up if you want). But, but...and I have two more things to say about it so don't go anywhere...There is NO SHELF BRA!! YES!!! Let me hear it ladies, how many of you hate the shelf bra? I have heard many of you express how much you hate it as well as I do.  Don't you tell me how much bosom I'm allowed to put in this shirt! If you pull it down too much is exposed, if you pull it up the elastic piece doesn't sit where it is supposed to. These camis are perfect!  And the third thing, you can't beat the price! $8.50 for 1 or 2 for $12! 6 bucks for a fabulous layering tank, yes please. The place I used to get my layering tanks sells them for 17 bucks a piece! That's means you can get hers for less than half the price. Ok, I'll stop impressing you with my math skills and just move on to the next topic of discussion...these earrings, to die for or what? I love filigree, I have a necklace I have posted a few times that's filigree(ok it's my daughter's, I "borrowed" it and just never gave it back). Filigree is just so elegant and lovely and these earrings are no exception! 

Sorry about the delay in posting, those storms were brutal! Knocked out our internet. But I'm back, YAY! No worries.
Have a great weekend all!

FAUX PEARL STATEMENT CHOKER

I apologize for being so late with the shorts posts. I have no excuse. But I'll give you one anyway. I'm not a huge shorts wearer, just because of the chafe factor. I have the hardest time finding shorts (that I like) that won't ride up the middle and stay put for "padding" the rub. So I spend most of the time pulling them out of my lady area and that's attractive in public. So when I do find shorts I can wear, I love it. The pair from Sweet Caroline that I featured HERE Friday are perfect that way, they have an elasticity to them and they don't ride up. These, also, I love, they are soft, flowy and seem to stay put. I have another pair very similar to these in white I will be posting on as well. These are old, but the ones I link look like they would stay put. 

Now the necklace, I have to talk about it. I am in LOVEE with this necklace. It is so fun and so different I just love it. I got it at Forever 21, and wouldn't you know it...I have searched all morning and can not find it on their site. I just bought it! THIS ALWAYS HAPPENS! Oh well, what are you going to do. Ok, I just found it searching through Google and I couldn't find it because it's sold out. Lord and Taylor has one that looks similar but it is definitely a splurge compared to the Forever 21 one. Maybe Forever 21 will get it back in stock, we can keep our fingers crossed.

Alright all, have a great Tuesday!
