Fashion Friday

Weekend's here!  And I am SO happy about that little fact.  Yea for Saturday morning waffles!  Yea for   
lounging in pjs!  Yea for no schedules!  Well.  Aside from a Saturday morning meeting, an afternoon birthday party, and church stuff Sunday...yea for not as crazy of a schedule!  :)  


Bought this a couple of weeks ago at The Limited and I've worn it twice.  SO SO comfortable.  I'm realizing that I'm kind of obsessed with grey this season.  I'm probably buying/wearing way too much of it.  But this top just spoke to me.  It said - "roll out of bed and put me on.  I'll feel like your pajamas all day."  
Very hard to not buy something when it says that to you.  

Grey Uggs for the morning running errands.  Grey boots to look a little more cleaned up for an appointment in the afternoon.

This top (comfortable as it is) is a little...blah?  So the next time I wore it I added my cream scarf.  

But just like San Diego temps always do, the cool morning turned into a warmer afternoon so half way through the day I switched to this scarf which isn't quite so hot. 
 (Bought this scarf at Gap a couple of years ago.)

I liked that scarf so much (I'd kind of forgotten I had it) that I took this top I usually wear with my anthro belt...

 and wore it with the scarf a few days later.  
Mix and match.  Match and mix.  

 By the end of the week our mild temps turned into hot summer temps so the kids and I (and the rest of this city) pulled out our summer clothes.  I bought this top and necklace last summer at Forever 21.  I think I paid a whopping eight bucks for the two of them together.  Ellie said to me today "mom!  That shirt is see through!"  I said - "I know!  That's why I have a white tee under it!"  Then she nodded her approval - "good thing mom."  Thanks for watching out for me El.  What would I do without all of the endless help and advice I receive daily from my three little ones.  :)

I forgot to get a picture of my outfit with the wedges I wore, but here is a pic of them.  How fun are those bedazzled stones!  Fancy Nancy all the way.  Addison loves them of course.    

I bought them to go with this dress, but they have been fun to wear with lots of things.  

I also wear my cheap-o Forever 21 top with my yellow shoes and these earrings.  
Nothing like a little summer wardrobe to end the month of January!  
Can you believe January is almost over!?  Is it just me or wasn't Christmas like two minutes ago?
Time is flying by so quickly.  
Probably because I'm in a stage of life right now where I don't have time to catch my breath.   
Only enough time to take pictures of what I'm wearing and then blog about it.  
You know.  Life is all about priorities.  

:)  

Have a great weekend everyone!

Erin, I love love that top!! Beautiful and comfortable! So excited for the weekend too! And I just saw your gorgeous Valentine mantle! love that too! xoxo

Erin said...

Thanks everyone!

Jessica - I think the sweater was from their winter line (before the holidays) so that may be why it isn't on their website. Bummer!

Anonymous - Don't worry about it. Not a big deal at all! :)

I love, love that gray sweater from The Limited. I saw it online a while ago and was tempted to buy it but wanted to try it on first. I wanted the gray and a color, but sometimes those shirts don't look as nice on as you expect. I really, really like it on you, though, and now I wish I would have just bought it! That's the trouble - I NEVER get to the mall and, when I do (like a few nights ago), Dane was a hot mess! He refused to sit in his stroller, he threw a temper tantrum in the parking lot, and he has absolutely no patience (typical man!) even though I brought snacks and toys for him. I Just wanted like 10 minutes to breeze through The Limited and it didn't happen. Anyway, keep those Fashion Friday posts coming because then I'll know what I like and what to order online!!! :) Have a great rest of your weekend. Oh, and you can never have too much gray! :)

Oh yeah, and you willingly wear heels?! Amazing!

Emily said...

Love all the ideas! I've been having a hard time coming up with "winter" outfits for 80 degree weather!
