Hello to my beautiful bloggy friends! Hope your weeks were good. I can’t complain about mine other than it seemed to draaaaaaag on forever. This 3-day weekend just wouldn’t get here.
But I managed and also found some cute outfits to wear.
*disclaimer* Today was the first day I asked Gibson to take my photo outside so he wasn’t making sure I was ready so I could pose or smile. I think I was telling him to hold the shutter down halfway to let it focus…but this is what we got. =D
We’re working on it and I think he’s getting better. Glad that I have him because I was getting tired of the ridiculously dark and drab pics I was taking in my bedroom.
Upcycled ruffle shirt: made by me
White corduroy flares: have had them forever. they are so old that the pockets in the back keep wearing out and I keep stitching them back together. I love these pants
Black flats: payless
Ball and chain necklace: made by me
Man this was a good day! Gibson’s last week of school and his end of the year school pool party took us to the Aquatic Center. Now, when I say us…I mean me and this awesome chick. You have that friend who you haven’t known each other all your lives but it feels like you do? You just connect on a sister level? You may not talk every day or even every week but when you get together it’s like you were never apart? That’s me and Jennifer. I just love this girl!
Every year, we plan for this day as our little play date. She finds a place for her two young girls and little Marshall stays home with daddy. This is our uninterrupted time to chat and hang out. So from 9am to 1pm, I take off work and meet her here while our boys jump off diving boards and flail themselves into the heated pools.
Only reaching 72 degrees, today was a bit warmer than last year and I ended up with a nice little burn…but that will tan later.
Here’s what I wore:
Striped tank: Walmart
Capri jeans: who knows
Black flip-flops: Old Navy
Pink bracelet: Target
Earrings: just my everyday $5 studs
A work function forced me to wear something nice today.
Black slacks: Kohl’s and hemmed like a pro by my momma
Purple plaid pleated shirt: Kohl’s
Grey cardi: Mervyn’s I think…forever ago.
Earrings: Target a few years ago
