WWW #36

Oh man, last week was FANTASTIC!  The weather was amazing.  Fall has finally arrived and I took full advantage.  So, let’s look at my wardrobe choices for the first official cool week here in grand ole West Texas!



I’m totally loving these new ankle pants from Target (and their skinny’s too!)

Pants:  Target, August 2012

Sweater:  Target, at least 4-5 years ago.  I love how it matched the current buy from Target though!  I love it when that happens!

Blouse:  Cato, Summer 2010 (I think, not really sure)

Belt:  Came with a tunic top from Target, August 2012

Shoes:  Target, Summer 2011

Jewelry:  H&M, Tiffany’s, Avon

Wow, I’m just a walking, talking advertisement for Target today aren’t I?

It’s Miracle Jeans Day at work!  It is the one time of year I can wear jeans to work.  Of course I have to pay $5.00 to do it but it’s a worthy cause and I get to jazz out some jeans so it’s definitely a win-win!

Jeans:  LA Idol, got them at Holiday Happening not last year but the year before, so November of 2010

Shirt:  Harley Davidson

Boots:  Harley Davidson

Yep, I wore my bike…and it started to rain so I promptly took it home, changed into my Toms and took the Tahoe back to work at lunch. 

Jewelry:  Avon, Tiffany’s, Brighton



Another super cute outfit!

Skinny Pants:  Target, August 2012

Shirt:  New York and Company, Summer 2011

Jean Jacket:  Old Navy, August 2012

Scarf:  Thrifted at an Estate Sale (paid just $.50 for it!)

Shoes:  Calvin Klein, got them from last year.  I LOVE these shoes and I swear if they had them in every color I would buy them.  They are so cute and tall but comfortable!

Jewelry:  Brighton, Tiffany’s, Avon



Pants:  Target ankle pants, August 2012

Shirt:  Not sure the brand, got it at Wild Oats, a local boutique here in town.

Shoes:  Ann Klein, got them at Tuesday Morning this week (SUPER COMFY and cute!)

Jewelry:  Brighton, Tiffany’s, Avon

Man, this week is hard to pick my favorite outfit.  I think I have to go with Thursday since I got the most compliments that day!

So, last week had Labor Day which means a short week for me.  Have you noticed though that when you have Monday off, your Tuesday is even a bigger drag than your Monday would have been?  Oh well, at least it was still just a 4 day work week.  Let’s get started with the outfits from last week.



I decided to wear my new western boots!  I liked this outfit actually and I felt pretty cute today.  I am wearing:

Shirt:  New York and Company Outlet, February 2011

Skirt:  A gift from my sister but I think she got it at Penney’s or Kohls, November 2010

Belt:  Brighton Outlet, Summer 2011

Boots:  DSW, Madden Girl Brand, August 2012

Accessories:  Turquoise necklace and bracelet from a Church Bazarre, other miscellaneous bracelets from Brighton and others that I don’t really remember.



Blouse:  Avon, new this campaign (Did I mention I sell Avon?)

Pants:  Ann Taylor, VERY old, like 5 years old at least.

Shoes:  Coach from Dillards, 3 years old I think

Accessories:  Necklace, earrings, and bracelet from Premier Jewelry, August 2012, also gold charm bracelet from Tiffany’s with lots of charms I’ve received as gifts from my dear Hot Rod, watch from Avon



OK, this is the first time in probably forever that I have worn white below the waist after Labor Day.  I have officially moved from the “it’s just not allowed camp” to the “I don’t care what people say, I’m wearing what I want camp”.  I mean when it’s 95 degrees outside it is still freaking SUMMER in my book!

Pants:  New York and Company, summer 2011

Shirt:  New York and Company outlet, February 2011

Sweater:  New York and Company, Summer 2011

Belt:  Came with a dress from Ann Taylor Outlet, Summer 2010

Shoes:  DSW, Moda brand, Summer 2011

Accessories:  Bracelet, Tiffany’s, Charm Bracelet, Brighton, Necklace, Earrings, and Bracelet, Brighton, Watch Avon



Pants:  These are those ankle pants I mentioned in my last post, I just got them at Target last week.

Shirt:  Avon, several years old…probably more like 4 or 5 years old

Shoes:  Ann Taylor on sale, summer 2011 (I love, Love, LOVE these shoes and they are super comfy!)

Accessories:  Necklace from the Brighton Outlet, Summer 2010, charm bracelet from Brighton, Black and Brown beaded coil bracelet from Avon.

Hope you had a fabulous Labor Day!

Some Fall Must-Haves

I thought I would share with you some of my recent Fall Must-Have purchases.  Although the temps this past week have been anything but fall-like, I still am in the spirit and the mood for some fall wardrobe choices.  I think a few key pieces will just totally transform your wardrobe and give you that much needed inspiration to throw some new outfits together to get through the new season.  So, here are some things I’ve bought that you will be seeing soon in my WWW posts.

First off:


A really nicely tailored pair of ankle pants.  These are from Target and they run $24.99.  They have tons of colors.  I got some in this tobacco color, black, and a really pretty wine color.  It’s weird though, the black ones are a little longer than the other 2.  Oh well, they are super cute and super flirty with high heels!



Some cowgirl boots!  I mean who doesn’t love them some cowboy boots?  Well, actually who doesn’t love them some cowboy period?  I got these at DSW and they were only $59.95.  They are SUPER comfortable and I’m pretty sure I can wear them all day and into the night without hurting my feet.  I had to order mine online because my DSW had exactly 2 pairs in the store, a 6 and a 10.  Um, does everyone in my town wear a 7?  I’ve about decided I must be a super popular size in everything.  On the pants above, I wanted to get those ankle pants in every color but they only had my size in the 3 that I got.  They have this beautiful purple pair that I really wanted but none in my size.  And I was at that Target last week and they didn’t have these pants at all, so within 1 week they got them and then sold out of my size in almost all of the colors!  As it was, I got the last pair of the 3 I did get in my size.  Sorry all you slightly plump girls out there, you are outta luck if you want them now!



A jean jacket!  I’ve been wanting one of these for awhile.  I keep seeing such cute outfits with the maxi dress or even regular dresses and skirts paired with a jean jacket.  I found mine at Old Navy for $29.95.  LOVE IT!  I liked it so much actually that I bought both of my daughters one too.  Yeah, we’ve all wanted one so I decided to share the love once I found this beauty for a really decent price.  They run a little small I think.  I had to get an XL and I usually wear a large at Old Navy.  Just sayin’.



Some bright colored pumps.  I’ve been wanting some of these for awhile too.  Sometimes I wear all brown, gray, or black and I want to jazz up the outfit a little.  I think a cool shoe in a different bright color would be just the ticket!  I got these at Target.  They are the berry color and they are $29.95.  They have a couple of other colors as well, but these were the brightest so I chose these.  I can’t wait to wear them with an all black outfit to give it a pop of color.

So, those are my fall purchases thus far.  Stay tuned to see how I integrate them into the wardrobe I already have.  What are your fall must-haves?

I don’t know about the rest of you but I am sooooo ready for FALL!  This heat is really getting to me.  We had a few weeks of temps in the high 80’s and lows in the low 60’s so I was getting excited thinking that Fall was here.  Uh, no.  Last week and it looks like this week as well had temps in the high 90’s and even approached 100 a couple of times.  Please, Please, Please, let this heat go away and bring me some fall temps!  I’m sick of my summer clothes and I’m really looking forward to bringing back some fall pieces!

Oh well, back to the wardrobe choices for last week…



This is a new shirt I got that works for now but will also transition into the Fall with ease.  I liked this outfit really.

Shirt:  Target, last week!

Pants:  New York and Company, last year sometime I think

Shoes:  Sperry’s, got them at Dillards in the summer of 2011

Purse:  Coach, got it at the Coach outlet a few years ago.

Jewelry:  Brighton mostly with some other bracelets as well.



This is one of those wild “I can’t believe this is working outfits”  I got this dress at H&M in New York on our trip last summer.  This a few weeks ago we went to visit our friends in Dallas and we went to Northridge Mall and they had an H&M there and they had this sweater that matched it exactly!  LOVE it when that kind of thing works out for me.

Dress:  H&M, New York, Summer 2011

Sweater:  H&M, Dallas, Summer 2012

Pants:  New York and Company, Fall 2011

Belt:  Brighton Outlet, summer 2010

Shoes:  Ralph Lauren, freebies given to me by a coworker because they hurt her feet!  They don’t bother me at all.

This is one of my new Must Have fall pieces, a jean jacket.  I got this one at Old Navy for a really good price of $29.50.

Shirt:  J Crew outlet, summer 2010

Jacket:  Old Navy, August 2012

Shoes and Belt:  Brighton outlet, summer 2010

Well, get ready to see this shirt for awhile.  We get to wear these on Friday’s at work through football season and since it is fun and cute and comfortable, I’ll probably take advantage of getting to wear a t-shirt to work while I can!

T-Shirt:  work, $13.00 and the proceeds benefit the Children’s Miracle Network

Pants:  New York and Company, Fall 2011

Shoes:  Toms

Hope you had a great Labor Day!  I sure enjoyed my 3 day weekend!!!!
