I’m a fan of the color block sweaters! I’ve been eyeing them, trying to figure out what color options I thought were the best for me. I finally decided on the blues. This one is extra cute because it has bell sleeves! The sweater material is soft and loose feeling. I ordered a small and it fit true to size. It’s meant to be oversized. This is a fun sweater that you can dress up or dress down. It made for a great opportunity to wear my over the knees boots!
This is the first group of photos I took using my new selfie lighting ring and tripod! It was really easy to use!
I had so much fun at my 35th high school reunion! Everyone looked amazing!!And it was one of the best ones we have had over the years. I found the cutest leopard sweater at Little Tipsy Boutique in Rockwall. It has the cutest back with a strip of material across the back. I wish I would have gotten a photo of it, but they have one in the link. I also got these cute over the knees boots there that I could actually pull up. They didn’t say they were wide calved boots, but they had to have been! I got the jeans at Ross for like $15. I thought it was the perfect comfortable reunion outfit!
I almost made it to my goal weight in time for the reunion. I made it the week after. Now I have to decide whether or not to keep losing or move to the maintenance phase of the program!
I declared that it was boot season way back in September. I think since that day, I’ve worn boots every day. I went to work one day and found that my heel had a crack in them, so I, sadly, HAD to go buy some new boots. I don’t like to spend a lot of money on clothes because I like a LOT of clothes. I always bargain shop! I went to DSW and found some very similar to the ones I had. They’re Unisa, so they are really comfortable. They also have a pretty wide leg, which is great since I have big legs!
I am also in LOVE with Tory Burch. I got this Tory Burch purse and some Tory Burch earrings for Christmas. (You can’t see the earrings in the picture, but they are SUPER cute. I’ll have to remember to take a picture of them some day.) We got a really good deal on them because we got them online through Ebates and Nordstrom.
If you haven’t heard of Ebates, you need to sign up NOW. It will change your online shopping habits forever. All you have to do is sign up. You’ll get a free gift card right away just for signing up. Then ANY time you want to buy online, just go to Ebates first, find out if the store you want to buy from has an agreement with them, click on the store, then shop normally. Ebates tracks the sale and then you get some money back!!! So for my Tory Burch purse and earrings, I get back $21.60 because Nordstroms was doing 6% back. Nordstroms has free shipping, so it was cheaper than buying in the store!! YEA me!! Another good deal!
I didn’t have much to do this weekend. I love having nothing to do, until it comes down to the fact that I have nothing to do. When that happens, my standard “go to” is to go shopping. As usual, I hit up all the Marshall’s in the Austin area. This was my lucky day!! I found a pair of brown riding boots that actually fit on my legs!! I found a pair the other day, but they were $150, and I’m cheap. I found these for $50. Since I got such a good deal, I decided I would just buy another fun pair for the winter!! Here are most of my new clothes. I was actually lucky and bought a few other things that are not in the pictures, too. 🙂
Riding boots are my favorite!! I just can’t usually find andy to fit my legs!! 😦 These are Unisa and fit!!
These were just fun boots, so I got them. They are Steve Madden boots.
It’s raining cats and dogs in Austin today! Yesterday when I heard about the weather I got so nervous. Mike wasn’t home and I really needed to park my car in the garage, which was full. Well, turns out I’m not as helpless as I thought I was because I was able to move everything to one side of the garage and get my car in there. It’s not pretty, but it fits. It may be time to get rid of some stuff though!!
The best thing about rainy days is RAIN BOOTS! I got mine last year at Maurice’s for $9.00. I had been looking everywhere for rain boots and the least expensive ones I found were $25.00. I’m pretty cheap, so I couldn’t justify paying that much for something I wear once a year.
I loved getting to work today an seeing all the cute rain boots that everyone has!
I bet my friend at Definitely Leopard will love these!
These are the Maurice Boots!
Here are some Missoni Rain Boots!!
