Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear.  I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.

Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE.  Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today is my last day at work until next Tuesday, the 2nd of April and I am counting down the hours!  Looking forward to relaxing but more importantly cleaning out my closets!  Getting ready for the 1st Flea Market of the season and will be gathering unused clothes and household items in order to make a little extra cash.

Maxi Skirt - Boscov's

This is my favorite maxi skirt and I will be keeping it because the print can be paired with a variety of tops and shoes, therefore, it will always be a closet staple.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It took me a while to get myself together after this morning’s encounter with my neighbor, but I’m glad that it happened because last night I dreamt about my aunt who passed away on Friday. However, the reason for being extremely late this morning was the multiple outfit changes, not the Polka Dot dress, that was a given but what to wear with it. I tried 2 different shirts over it,…2 different shirts underneath it…3 different color blazers before finally settling on this Aqua Cardigan.   I buttoned it and put on a pair of Mossimo flats then looked into the mirror, I immediately thought about FLOTUS Obama meeting The Queen of England.

Remember the flack she got for having the audacity to wear a sweater to meet The Queen for the first time – puh-leeze people – get a life! No matter your political affiliation, that was just stupid with a capital “S”, such an embarrassment for our country…just one of many…okay stepping down from the Soap Box now.

Polka Dots and Cardigan

I am so glad that the weather is finally warming up, the birds were chirping in all their glory..aah the sounds of Spring. 

Birds chirping - the sounds of Spring

All the snow is gone!

Today’s outfit seemed appropriate as a transition from Winter to Spring what do you think?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Believe it or not we got snow flakes this morning, it was nothing major just some spritzing, but I do hope it was the last for the season.  I feel sorry for hubby because the year after the big snow storm of 2010, he used his credit card to purchase a snow blower from Sears…it’s been sitting in the garage collecting dust as he continued to pay the high interest charges!

Thursday's Bling

It took me a little longer to dress this morning because what was forecast on Sunday changed and it was too cold for my dress.  I ended up grabbing this two-tone skirt and polka dot top then added a little bling to jazz it up.  I didn’t wear hubby’s watch to work just used it for the pictures, definitely too much.

Hello Friends and Happy DST Monday!

Woke up thinking it would be a bright and sunny Pre-Spring day, instead it was a dark and damp foggy morning, oh well at least I woke up a lot of people didn’t! (Blessed). The day started out much like most people’s heads…a little foggy, why don’t we abolish Daylight Savings Time, it’s original purpose is no longer valid, what do you think?

Driving in fog is dangerous yet some people feel the need to speed which makes it even worse, unfortunately 6 teenagers lost their lives in Ohio due excessive speeding – God rest their souls! (News Report)

Which brings me to another reason why I don’t like car shopping for my son’s, too many young people die in car crashes. As most of you know my lil sis, Gloria was killed in a car crash in 1992, she was only 29, and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her!

Shake it off … shake it off… sorry, didn’t mean to bring you down!

Let’s clear the way for the outfit of the day.

What do you think about these pumps with this outfit – should I have worn the green cap-toe pumps from Target?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, we’re on the down stroke to the weekend!

Yesterday after work I stopped for gas, paid $3.67/gallon, getting just enough to get home or to a cheaper station. This morning it was $3.69! It’s times like these that I miss living in New York and taking public transportation. Delaware has DART Bus service but I would rather drive than risk being hit over the head with a gun for a bite of sandwich – don’t believe me…it happened on Monday, read the article here

Do you ever drive around burning gas looking for cheaper gas – crazy right!  If I did commute to work on public transportation this Merona tote would be perfect to carry.  It’s not as though I have a lot but if I did, it’s very roomy.  It could also be used an an overnight bag, what do you think?

Animal Print booties were purchased last year on clearance at Deb Shop and the pantsuit is from the back of the closet – the shoulder pads dates it.  Worthington scoop neck top was $4 from JC Penney and Merona tote was part of my shoe haul from Target.
