Can't part with them?!....


Skirt: F21 (Very old.... we are talkin 10 years old :/) Tee: Target // Sandals: Target // Jacket: H&M // Necklace: The Travelers Hart // Sunglasses: Nordstroms

I have mentioned it before... I even did a post about it HERE.
If you are like me, you have lost pieces of clothing... in your OWN closet. However, not entirely. I try to go through my closet at least once a year to see if there are things that are just too worn out or those few things that no matter if it ever comes back in style you swear to yourself you will never be caught dead in it. I once did that with all my OVERALLS.... no way were those EVER going to come back in style. Well, if you haven't seen, they totally are back. AND I want some!! Haven't been able to find the perfect ones yet but I am on the hunt.
Anyway, back to what I was talking about, those lost items. Although, I try to get ride of stuff there are those few items that even though I haven't worn it 10+ years, I just can't part with. This skirt being one. Not that I thought it was out of style ( not many styles of skirts go out of style, which is WHY I love them) but because it wasn't one of those things that caught my eye. I never knew what top to wear it with which made it just keep getting pushed further back into my closet. 
Well, I was determined to wear something I hadn't for a while so I put it on, threw on a shirt that I didn't care if it matched or not and LOVED IT! 
So, I challenge you!
Just tell yourself that you are going to wear that one shirt or dress that you just can't give up. It's just for a day and if by the end of that day you didn't love it.... chuck it. You will probably discover a new love for it and put it back into your closet for another 10 years! Oh well.... Your husbands side of the closet still has room right???

Happy Friday, hope you enjoy your long weekend!!

Where You Can Find Me.....

Jeans: Vigoss via Nordstroms Rack {Similar HERE} // Tee: Target // Kimono: Target // Sandals: Target // Necklace: The Travelers Hart // Watch: Target // Bracelet: J. Crew

As you may be able to tell, I don't get out much.... Target is where my shopping consist of. I am not like all you over achiever moms out there. Just the though of taking my kids to the mall is exhausting to me. But that's totally fine because Target has been hittin it out of the park with all of their new spring and summer clothing!

I have recently started bribing my children with popcorn, icee, and whatever else there is just to keep them entertained while I rush through EVERY isle at Target. Yes, you heard right EVERY isle which I hope you do too because if you do you know that there are secret sale stuff all over 
Target which sometimes are SUPER SUPER cheap!! I tell my kids it s treasure hunt.

Hope you guys have a fabulous week!
Thanks for reading.

My little Secret....

 Dress: Target // Shoes: Betsey Johnson via Tj Maxx // Flower Crown: Forever 21 // Watch: Target // Bracelet: J Crew

Hey Guys!!
Well it's a new week and MAY already!  Nothing says May better then FLOWERS! 

Also, I have a secret to share with you. Trust me it can change your whole shopping experience and it's so simple!!
See this dress? Its not my size, I actually bought it 2 sizes bigger. Why, you may ask. Well because my actually size would have made this dress 2-3 inches shorter. At times it is hard finding dresses or shorts that are not super short. With being a mom, chasing my kids around and for religious beliefs I needed something longer. This dress is made to be a little more form fitting which then becomes shorter in length. I decided to try on the bigger size to see if that helped. It did, and instead of being form fitting the fit was more loose, comfortable, and a longer dress..... just what I needed!! If you wanted it more form fitting and are good with a sewing machine then BOOM!
See simple!
However, not all dresses extend the length with a larger size. But you never know unless you try it on! 

Hope you guys have a great week. Happy Monday!

Black & White...

 Top: Old Navy {In-Stores) // Jeans: Old Navy // Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita via Nordstroms Rack // Sunglasses: The Travelers Hart // Necklace: The Travelers Hart // Watch: Target // Bracelet: J. Crew Factory


My new obsession has been sunglasses. I have gone a little overboard and have gotten way too many for this summer:\. But lets be honest, you can never have too many sunglasses especially if you plan to spend your summer relaxing by the pool,have a vacation coming up, or even driving too and from work. 

I am famous for either loosing or breaking sunglasses. I am a true believer that if you pay more for them they are usually better quality(at least I hope) BUT that doesn't help you from loosing them in the ocean {been there, done that} or leaving them in a hotel room {again guilty}. 
So, I have learned that at times it's ok to splurge, being that they usually are better quality and will hold up longer, but also have your cheaper ones which are JUST as cute...on hand for when you are going to the beach. I have found some cute and inexpensive ones at F21, Nordstroms, Target and a lot of other places. I recently ordered these Karen Walker look alike and have fallen in love with them!! 

As you can tell I am pretty excited for the summer!!

Happy Tuesday!
