My Saturday...

Today was suppose to be a productive day...I planned on running, doing lots of laundry, organizing some, etc...and I woke up sick. BLAH! Making my morning even more exciting was the fact that my kids were all up by 6:30am...first one arose at 6:05am. Heaven help me! To top it off my husband had already left to go fishing so it was all me. I've spent all day trying to get over this darn cough/wheezing/headache/shortness of breath...I'm feeling a little better but I really could go crawl into bed for the rest of the day. However, I can't do that because we have plans tonight...the kind of plans that involve a babysitter for the kids while Josh and I go out with some friends to dinner at PF Changs. I just don't miss out on plans like that...ever! So away we will go...I want my honey crispy chicken over brown rice!

I broke out the new shoes for tonight...these are the kind of shoes you wear out on date night...not to Target on a regular basis. They definitely scream "night time". I can't say I'll never wear them during the day but it's highly doubtful. I pulled out a few new things I've purchased over the past few months in anticipation of fall...and without even realizing it once again I'm continuing on with the purple and green...I'm a one trick pony this week on the color wheel...geez!

-Tiered Tank-Old Navy (highly recommend this it!)
-Olive green Forever Cardigan-J Crew Outlet
-Ultimate Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Flower Belt-J Crew Outlet
-Vince Camuto "Miki Pumps"-Nordstrom
-Necklace-Old Navy
-Ring-Forever 21

I stalked that flower belt for months...I've seen so many models on many websites wearing one like it and always thought it was so cute but just didn't know if I could pull it off. They were on a great sale one time when I was at the outlets and I finally decided to take the plunge. I figured there must be something I could do with it! When I took my shoes out of my closet today I immediately noticed they were a similar color to the color of my belt...good start! Not sure I tied it right, but I'm running with it. This olive green color is another step outside my box...I never wear olive green so when I bought the cardigan I was risking it. I think as long as you pair it with the right color, it can be flattering on most skin tones, honestly. I loved it with the bright royal purple and it just looks like fall to me. It's only about 74 degrees here today so I'm feeling like fall. =)

I'm off to run a few errands (my kids don't care that I'm sick...they still need to be fed so I need to get some groceries). No worries...I changed my shoes...flats for now until we go out tonight.

Enjoy your day!


  1. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. You look fabulous. Such a great date night outfit. I haven't had a date night in ages. It's something I'm planning to do when my mom comes to stay with us next week. I'm hope you feel better soon.

  2. Oh no! feel better! It must be the back-to-school students have already given me two kinds of "the crud." Lovely! At lease you look fabulous...I am loving the color combo!

  3. Another gorgeous date night outfit - I hope you had a yummy dinner and fun with your friends, despite not feeling so great. Hopefully, today you are feeling much better! You look awesome in that olive shade too!

  4. I love the combination of that top and that sweater! Such pretty, rich colors for the end of summer/beginning of fall. Your heels are fierce! Hope you feel better!

  5. You look so pretty!!! I am glad your mom got you those cute shoes!

  6. You look so good in olive! And I'm glad you found those skinnies, they look really good on you. Hope you had a fun night out, I love some PF Changs! Oh, and I love your shoes too. ;)

  7. You look really good for a sickie ;-). I have to stop buying tdf cute shoes like the ones you have on. I hear you on them being ok for nite time but not Target and other things I do on a regular basis. I hope I get & retain the memo permanently.

  8. What a great way to debut your new shoes. That was such a sweet present from your mom, and they look absolutely perfect with the flower belt. Good find!
