Today’s outfit of the day features a skirt hubby gave me last year for Eid al-Fitr, which is the Islamic holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan. In addition to this Kimono Skirt he also ordered for me a few other skirts and tunics from EastEssence.com all of which I love. This white, cotton, wrap skirt is very flattering and the hand-stitched embellishment, piping around the pockets and buttons really enhances the look. This is a large which is my normal size and it falls loosely over the hips and is not binding, I would have worn my shirt tucked in as shown on the website but you can see my underwear so I decided against it – hubby agreed!

At work – skirt has two side pockets

Last spring while shopping at Goodwill in Exton, PA, I saw this dress and immediately fell in love with the pattern.  Sunday night while watching the 10:00 news I noticed reporter Luann Cahn had the same patterned dress, but I bet she didn’t get it from Goodwill for $5.00!  This is the first time wearing it this summer and once again thanks to Saturday’s picnic, it fits like a glove!

Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the end of the season sales and clearance racks.  Sleeveless dresses can easily transition into the fall by simply adding a jacket or blazer.  Throw on an over sized knit sweater, change from open toe sandals to tights and boots and  the dress can be worn well into the winter months.  Here are a few dresses that I found at Ross for $12.99, and Burlington Coat Factory for $16.99, some of which will definitely be worn during the cooler months.

Monday…Monday…Monday…coming off a high carb, no exercise weekend and it shows!  Saturday afternoon we went to a friend’s Bar-B-Que and the food was awesome!   They had jerk chicken, fried chicken, barbecue chicken, mac and cheese, peas and rice, green beans, corn, salmon cakes, pasta salad, green salad, ribs, beer, wine, coolers and other adult beverages.  I had a few pieces of jerk chicken, peas and rice and  2 salmon cakes because our hosts are from Trinidad so you know it was authentic finger-lickin, slam yo mama good!  I thought about taking pictures but decided to only feature the 3 bottles of hot sauce, one of which was the “3 5 7 Mad Dog” and I definitely needed a shot of milk after tasting this one!

I woke up Saturday to “Mom…mom…mom” while being poked in the back….”mom mom are we still going shoe shopping? Oh yea, that got me up and going, it was music to my ears. He actually wanted new sneakers but shoe shopping in any shape, fashion or form is a good day. I had two DSW coupons for $25.00 off my next purchase as well as a balance on a gift card so that’s where we were headed but first we stopped at Burlington Coat Factory.  Malik is still on the Graduated License program for supervised driving so I was a passenger on this mission.

It’s a Good Day – my son is taking me shoe shopping!

He found a pair of Cadillac  sneakers for $25.00 (yea Malik) but also 2 jackets and a watch, me…nothing but pictures which I will post later. I’m not sure if they are pairing down the shoe department or waiting for the Fall collections, but they really didn’t have anything that called out “buy me buy me”.   The price of the sneakers and jackets wasn’t bad but the cashier asked if I would complete a phone survey, for which I would receive 20% off the highest priced item.  Sure,  so after completing the survey she re-rang one of the jackets saving me an additional $15.00.  It’s a a Good Day!

Cadillac Sneakers – $24.99

Jacket on clearance for $49.98, but got an additional $14.99 off – paid $34.99

Watch – $19.99

$39.99

Next we drove over to DSW, Malik didn’t find anything but I found a cute pair of Chinese Laundry suede pumps for less than $10.00! They were on clearance, 30% off $49.94,  and using my two coupons and gift card nothing came out of my wallet, Saturday Shoe Shopping with Son was a VERY good day!!

Clearance $49.94 plus 30% off plus $25 off coupons = $9.96 – used gift card – paid $0

So comfy1
