Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

My youngest will be entering High School as a Senior which means no more standing at the bus stop in the rain…he drives, and no more back to school shopping…he wouldn’t be caught dead shopping with his mother…besides he has his own Debit Card.

His last year in High School is bittersweet but it doesn’t mean I can’t go “Back to School Shopping” and take advantage of the end of the season sales.

I may not be doing this…

back to school 2

But I can do this…

back to school

Which is what I did at TJ Maxx and Burlington Coat Factory!

August Weekend 2 036

Leaving TJ Maxx I saw Barbie, a true fashionista, whose skirt and top were purchased at Nzinga’s Boutique.  A perfect outfit to wear out and about running errands or shopping (s/o to Steve aka Ken – lol)

August Weekend 2 037

Next I drove down Naamans Road to Burlington Coat Factory at the Tri State Mall

August Weekend 2 039

I also purchased a pair of CitiClassifed Pumps ($9.98) and Yellow Evening Bag ($7.98) – I love clearance racks just as much as thrifting!

Next year we will be paying College tuition so there will be no more Back to School Shopping for me, also bittersweet!

Have you done any Back to School shopping or taken advantage of the end of season sales?

Hello Friends – do you want to make the 1st Monday of the summer better?

Then do what I do, think of  your favorite summer songs, you know the ones that you just have to hear every year no matter how old it is…the ones you only listen to when it’s hot outside or when you’re on vacation?

Okay, now download, stream or pull them up on Pandora, turn up the volume, then sing along loudly in your office or cubicle – sike…don’t get fired…or carted off to Bellevue,  just sing quietly and chair dance!

This is the list with link to my six favorite summer songs.

Sundress – C.o.C.o Brown & The Phat Cat Players

Summertime – Will Smith

Under The Boardwalk – The Drifters

Celebration – Kool & The Gang

Hot Hot Hot – Buster Poindexter

Heatwave – Martha & The Vandellas

Summer songs and summer wear seem to go hand-in hand, hence my #1 jam, so when it’s hot all day everyday, I prefer a sundress.  This is one of my favorites thrifted from GW Boutique.

Hello Friends and Happy Fat Tuesday -aka- Mardi Gras

The sun is shining and I am sure the revelers in New Orleans are having a fantastic time partying and parading!

I’m wearing my favorite colorful scarf from Target to break up the black and blue but couldn’t decide on the shoes.

These patent leather Mossimo heels were part of a end-of-the-summer Target Shoe haul.Image

I also got them in blue, pink and yellow!

I love this infinity scarf and I am going to get some fabric to make a few more before the season changes.

Pants and top – closet staples

Which pair looked better – the black or blue?

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay Fri-Yay Fri-Yay

After a long restless night due to a toothache I awoke to this gift from God!

OOTD 1 25 13 007

This is the calm before the storm as Winter is definitely in full force, with snow scheduled to begin falling around 3 p.m.  The roads have been brined to cut down on commuter accidents because the temps are also going to drop even lower into the single digits.

As you can see, I am fully prepared and hopefully will leave early enough to stop and pick up a bottle of wine (for me) and Chinese take-out for my men. My plans are to be indoors snug-as-a-bug-in-the-rug until at least Sunday.

These Paisley Skinny Jeans and Infinity Scarf were both on clearance at Target and men’s sweater was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill). The boots have been in my closet for several years and most likely were purchased from Payless.

Believe it or not, this faux fur vest once was a coat that I DIY’d because it didn’t fit properly. I shorten the length using the excess for a scarf, removed the sleeves and made a pair of leg warmers.

Do you refashion clothing, if so, what have you done and how did it work out?
