Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend was simply gorgeous outside...perfect fall weather. We spent three hours at a park on Friday afternoon playing with friends and then hubby and I took the kids to another park yesterday for a bit to get some of the kids' energy out again. You have to take advantage of these awesome fall days while they're here (and while the rain is NOT)! I have a few days worth of outfits to share with you...first up is from Friday:

With the sweater:

-Bianka Blouse (blue motif)-Anthropologie--only solid colors left online now
-Grosgrain Cardigan-Loft
-Skinny Jeans-American Eagle
-Kachiri Boots (Taupe)-Target
-Ring-Forever 21
-Earrings-Old Navy

I love this blouse. I love the colors and how versatile the top is. I wore it with a skirt last time I wore it and it has a totally different look to it with jeans.


-Top-The Limited
-Jackie Cardigan-J Crew Outlet
-Always Skinny Jeans-Gap
-Ruffle Flats-Old Navy
-Necklace-Tiffany (gift from hubby)
-Ring/Bracelet-Pac Sun

This was a super comfy, easy outfit...perfect for a Saturday. Pretty much any cardigan can be thrown over this shirt and match. I felt a little colorful with the magenta shoes, but I liked it. You can always use a little more color, right?!!

And today:

-Traversa Cardigan-J Crew
-Flats-Rocketdog via Macy's
-Ring-Forever 21
-Bracelet-family piece handed down to me from my grandma

We went to church this afternoon and I was once again faced with trying to find an outfit to wear with flat shoes (my sprained ankle is still not healed). I haven't worn heels in two weeks and I'm missing all my tall shoes! I'm hoping this is the week it starts feeling better. Maybe by the time Thanksgiving rolls around I can think about wearing heels again (fingers crossed). I haven't worn this top in's been sitting in my "wash by hand" pile that I finally got around to washing last week. This skirt is fun because it has a bit of a shimmer to it (foil finish I think it was called). I always like a little bling!! Overall I liked how the outfit turned out--I'd wear it again.

Since I put myself on a shopping break for clothes for myself I've been focusing more on my Christmas shopping lists. My boys went through the Target Christmas book yesterday and showed me all the toys they want...geez, Santa better get busy! =) I thought I'd share with you one of the fun, super cheap toys Santa is bringing them this was a toy we stumbled upon at a friends house and they loved it!

Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit

This was a toy that all the neighborhood kids were lined up to play with when it was out...including my boys. It's super fun, inexpensive, and so simple, but they loved it! And it doesn't even need batteries...that's the best part! I picked one of these up on Amazon last night along with one of the three pillow pets I'm hunting down for a good price. Anyone else's kids getting a Pillow Pet this Christmas? Those darn commercials on TV totally worked and sucked my kids in. My oldest wants the penguin, #2 wants the dolphin and #3 is getting the monkey...because #2 said #3 wants a monkey....funny. The penguin was a decent price on Amazon but the Dolphin and Monkey were super inflated...I'll just check some local stores to pick those up...I've seen them around.

What are your kiddos asking for this year? Are you already shopping? I'm getting ready (and super excited) for Black Friday in less than two weeks...can't wait! My friends and I are planning on a midnight start this year...definitely gonna need some mint hot chocolate from Starbucks at some point in the night to keep me going!


  1. Hope your ankle feels better soon! I tried to start Christmas shopping but so far my progress has been limited... I don't have kids but I have three little nieces who seem to have every toy in the world, so I never have any idea what to get them! :) Usually something High School Musical or Dora the Explorer related :)

  2. Oh I loooove your church outfit with the Traversa cardi - GORGEOUS! My boys got Stomp Rockets last year and love them to death - literally, the rockets have bit the dust after a lot of vigerous play - funny because Sawyer just asked me to get him a new one for Christmas! Sawyer also wants a pillow pet, lol, but I'm undecided on that one ;) I really need to get going on my shopping!

  3. I love your Sunday outfit! I hav enot started Christmas shopping yet - but instead of getting presents for my family we adopt a family and get present for them instead. I love doing that - it makes Christmas so much less stressful and enjoyable for some reason. But, I still have t get stuff for the boyfriend's family. You are on top of it!
