Pink and Navy

 I was tempted to name this week “Pink and Navy Week”.  I was looking through my outfit pictures and I think I might be a bit obsessed with that color combination.  Just expect a lot of these colors in the future :)

 I also think you might be seeing a lot of these little boat shoes.  They seriously go with everything and I love them!



 I bought some new sunnies the other day ($6 at Ross) and thought it would be so great to have two different pairs of sunglasses for shoots.  On the day I bought them, my two year old broke the other pair…the 3rd pair he has broken in a few months (now you know why I am thrilled at $6 sunglasses!) It is seriously a good thing he is cute!

Dress Restyle

 I recently restyled an older dress that I had in my closet and loved the results so I decided to try doing it to another dress.  I LOVE this dress that I got for Easter last year from Shabby Apple (Well, it was FROM my husband, but bought it from Shabby Apple :)  I have always loved the skirt on it and decided that it needed some time in the lime light.

I love green and navy together and have paired them quite a few times.

 I love Shabby Apple dresses (have you entered the giveaway yet?)  This one is so feminine and I love the fabric they made it out if (I probably shouldn’t even post it because they don’t have it anymore, but I ADORE it and had to share it with you :). 

 I also have been loving navy, pink and yellow together, so I thought it needed to be put together. I was totally digging it :)

This really has been a week of dresses for me.  I guess I really like em :)  I just think they are so cool and feminine when it is warm out…and I really like em.

Shabby Apple Giveaway {CLOSED}

I am so excited about my very first giveaway! One of the things that I am the most excited about is that it is from SHABBY APPLE! I love Shabby Apple and have ordered quite a few things from them in the past (one in a post coming up).  In this giveaway you can win a $50 gift card to Shabby Apple!!!
 I went through their site trying to decide with pictures to put on my blog and I had a tough decision trying to
narrow it down! I love how feminine everything is with such incredible details.  I pretty much love everything, but these are some of my favorites. 
 Oh my goodness who wouldn’t want to wear this outfit, I am in love with it!!.  I actually have a totally random love of all things sailing.  I have never lived on the beach nor been on a sailboat, but one day I will go on one.  I LOVE sailing (well I think I do :)
 This skirt is everything that I would love in a maxi skirt.  It is totally on the wish list!
 Oh how I love this outfit (including the lovely shoes and socks).  I’d wear the whole thing top to bottom.
 This swimsuit is AMAZING!  Might need to have it (I won’t tell you that I own like 25 swimming suits…)

Mixing it Up

Once upon a time I was a “sales rep” for a clothing company called “Layers.”  I LOVED their clothes and would buy lots of them with the pretense that I was going to sell them to others (I like to think that I really did have the intention of selling them).  I am sure you are guessing who I really sold them to…yep, myself.  I think I may have made 3 sales the whole time I did it.  My husband and I have since learned (after I did the same thing with Mary Kay), that I am not good at sales and should at all costs avoid it.  I just have such a hard time feeling like I am pressuring people or making them feel uncomfortable.

Well, while in the service of Layers I bought this cute little dress above.  I don’t really wear it any more and was thinking maybe I should give it to the D.I. (Utah thrift store).  Then I took a good critical look at it, I really did like the bottom of it.  The colors were fun and interesting and it would make a great SKIRT (I may have it altered into one eventually).

I am a firm believer that your closet is a great place to go shopping.  Everyone, even you (yes you)  has hidden gems in there that they have over looked and if they just mixed them up a little they might re-fall in love with them.

After remixing this little number up with a different top and jewelry I really love it again!  Not to mention it is so fun to see my clothes look new again and different from the way I have worn them in the past.

On a different subject (this blog really is just one big tangent after another) my 8 year old participated in his first Pine Wood Derby (where they get a car kit and build and decorate it) tonight.  He and my husband built it together and was cute to see them work on it.  His car ended up holding the record for the fastest time for the whole night.  I am shamlessly proud of him!

It was so cute to watch him get so excited about it (and I have to admit, the hubs was pretty excited too.)  I love to watch my kids have victories in their lives.  It was a good night.

Thank You Sperry Much

I know, totally lame blog post title, but you have no idea how I struggle with those!  It really does have to do with this post :)  I have the cutest sweetest husband.  He really does try to understand the fashion world and what I love about it, but frankly…it just isn’t his thing :)  I had told him that would like to get a pair of Toms and some Sperrys for summer.

We gave each other Easter baskets this year and inside mine (besides yummy Caramel Cadbury Eggs that I am already missing and dreaming about for next year…) was a note that said “Tom’s, Sperry’s are they the same thing??”  He laughed a sheepish little laugh as I read the note.  I don’t care if he gets fashion or not, but I do love that he is okay with me loving it :) 

So I happily spent the next little while perusing the Tom and Sperry sites and ended up getting some black Toms and these hot little leopard print Sperrys. 

I have to admit I love them like nobody’s business (and my husband for “getting them” for me :)  They have clear sequins on them and shimmer a bit.  Love it!

So you all need to know that my husband has just won the “Husband of the Year” award and it isn’t just for his willingness to buy me shoes but his sweetness and consideration.  The fact that when I went to the ballet all day with a friend, I came home to a sparkling clean house and happy boys because Dad had taken such good care of them.  He also does the dishes every night without being asked and says cute things about how much he loves me all of the time.  I have to say, I really am lucky!
