This weekend after I celebrated my sons 8th birthday I decided to take a few days off and do what I do best…SHOP! I took my time and hit a bunch of local Tampa boutiques that I love and found a ton of great stuff on sale. Although I never made it to a mall, I did make my obligatory stops at Ross, Marshalls and of course T.J. Maxx. My favorite purchases were the gray booties and chambray top seen below that I found for only $5 at T.J. Maxx. I’ve been looking for this particular worn-out grayish/taupe colored booties for some time now, and I finally found them on sale for only $20! The built in wedge gives me the height that I always want but still keeps me super comfy. I can’t wait to wear them with my shorts and skirts this summer (actually this weekend because it’s going to be in the 80’s). Click here for some outfit ideas.
I can’t believe he’s 8 years old!
Now this how you wear head to toe denim (and red lipstick)! Love the little details in Zoe Saldana’s outfit: the clear aviators are to die for, the boots give the look a masculine feel and the cross body bag finishes off the effortless look – perfection! Get Zoe’s look for less with pieces from Jc Penney, American Eagle, Vince Camuto & more!
I used to get easily bored by my hair style and color. I’ve had my hair super short (think Drew Barrymore’s Guess ads and Winona Ryder in’ Reality Bites – yeah that short!). Then I switched to a angled bob, which I actually loved but I was way too lazy to be trimming it every three weeks. The long layered style I have now is the longest I’ve had a style and I do love it (the color is whole other story). The ombre style is my favorite and easiest for me but I get bored easily.
Zooey Deschanel style bangs are so cute and I’m tempted to give bangs a shot. But, to confuse things, I really really love Olivia Palermo‘s hair style just as much. What to do! Check out some of inspirations below.
Last week all of my kids had the flu, which I caught on Thanksgiving, and then this week I dislocated my shoulder and somehow hurt my back (doctor tells me it’s probably just a pinched nerve but recommended I see a specialist because of the pain). It’s been really difficult to keep up with anything (I haven’t even bought one Christmas gift yet!) I did however mange to convince my mom and kids to help me finish decorating the tree and put up the lights outside. The only time I got out this week was for multiple doctor appointments for my arm and back but what made my day was receiving my Mammouth Crocs. It was perfect timing because theyre SO comfy and make walking with a pinched back nerve a little easier (I snapped a few pics before I was back in bed). But I can’t complain! I have my mac and iphone, I caught up on shows and updated my Christmas music song list. Check out below some of favorite spanish Christmas songs below 🙂
