Feeling Girly....and check out my Blog Sale!!!

Happy Monday!

First up, it's blog sale time!  I've cleaned out my closet again and over 35 items listed for sale on my sale blog.  Items listed are from Anthropologie, J Crew, Gap, Banana Republic, The Limited, DownEast Basics and more!  Click here to check it out:


********************

We're at T-minus two weeks until summer vacation is officially over...crazy!   I did a little back-to-school shopping over the weekend for my kiddos since Gap was having some amazing deals both online and in-store.  We also stopped by Gap Factory on Saturday and the whole store was 40% off!  Score!  I got some pretty fantastic deals, I must say. =) We also accomplished getting everyone new backpacks (see which ones my boys chose HERE--my oldest chose the "Skulls" pattern and my 2nd grader chose the "True Black"), lunch bags (see which ones my boys chose HERE--each to match their backpacks), and water bottles (trying out THESE this year) so those can all be checked off the list now too.  Just about ready to start I think! 

Since school is right around the corner, I was thinking about the fact that we have a few events coming up that I want to look my best for.  I think it's always good to put your best foot forward when starting off the new year.  There's meet the teacher night at the elementary school, meet the teacher day at preschool for my youngest, first day of school for everyone, first PTO meetings of the year, etc, etc, etc.  Next Monday I'll be putting together a post with some great looks you can wear to any of these types of events. You never want to look like you're the "way too overdone" mommy, but looking a little glam never hurt anyone, right?!  I promise, it doesn't even take much!   Check back next Monday to get some great look ideas for all your back-to-school events!

Onto a little fashion for today...here's an outfit I wore a few weeks ago to church...I'll admit I kinda loved how it turned out:

Some outfits just scream "girly" and this was definitely one of them.  I've had this dress for years and still love it so much!  Don't you love it when you find an item that stands the test of time?!!

  7. Hey Jenni! I just got home and saw your question about the yellow flats. I found them to run big so order a 1/2 size down. oh, and I love your church outfit, so cute!!

  8. oh shoot! I just looked at my flats to double check and I got my regular size. They are a tad roomy but not overly so but I maybe could've sized down - it would probably be tight though. They do run a little wide but not enough to make me return them. Hope that helps!!

  10. Love this outfit. I would have never thought to put all those colors together, but it works perfectly with the necklace and you look darling! Shoes are fantastic too. With all the colors in the dress, necklace, and sweater, a non-color shoe compliments the outfit.
