Hi everyone! Sharing a few fun finds today. A couple of weeks ago I went shopping and the stars aligned! I found so many things I love – as opposed to countless shopping trips when I’ve needed clothes and have been unable to find a thing.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with everything I found, but I did want to show you this blouse because I NEVER buy patterned shirts. NEVER. And I told myself this year I was going to get out of my rut of solid colors. And I’m quite proud of myself for actually buying this. I love this blouse because it works with a belt (I’m all about belts the year after the baby – they are perfect for masking that lovely stretched stomach), it works with jeans, and it also works tucked in with a high waisted black skirt when I need to dress up for something. And yes, I know I look super cheesy with my hands on my hips in this picture and my head is cut off. I asked Kenny to take a picture of me in my new clothes. It was a Sunday during a playoff game. May have been a critical moment in said playoff game. He gave me a nice look that said “seriously?” Knowing I needed him for some computer assistance later that evening I decided not to push it. Out came the tri-pod! I took this picture and the next few and then all at once Kole woke up from his nap, Ellie was hungry, and Addison was having an outfit crisis. My photo shoot was over before it started. I knew I’d have to just post the few shots I got – cheesiness and all. :)
that opens up like this. I am always losing things in my purse. And I needed a big one that will hold all of my stuff plus a bottle for Kole and snacks for the girls (not fond of diaper bags). This middle pocket is perfect! It holds only three things. My keys, my cell phone, and Kole’s binkie. The main three things I am always reaching for and now I can get to them so easy! No more digging through my purse when the phone is ringing or the baby is fussy.
Also in my purse I have this fun little zipper pouch –
Remember the favorites party I went to? My friend Kathleen brought these little beauties to help keep your purse organized. What? Purse organization? Quickly became one of my favorites at the favorites party. :) Mine holds hand lotion, lip stick, lip gloss, chap stick, eye drops, floss, and nail clippers (don’t keep floss and nail clippers in your purse? MUST haves for me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve needed them). I love that when I’m driving and need to put on some lip gloss it’s so easy to find and grab out of my purse.
These drawer organizers I’ve had forever and they are my favorites. They’re called “dream drawers” and if I remember right I think I got them at Bed Bath and Beyond. Each separator has a spring in it so you push it together and put it where you want it in your drawer and then release and it will stay in place.
I had all of our cords/chargers in this kitchen drawer but it doesn’t take much for them to become a tangled mess.
Wa-la! Now this zipper pouch fits nicely in the drawer and the cords stay untangled and out of sight. Love this!
This one just makes me laugh. It’s a key finder I got Kenny for Christmas (also found at Target). He is always losing his keys. Now he has a little button on his key chain and if we can’t find his keys we push the button on this remote and they start beeping. Genius!
The weather here has been so sunny and nice! I bought this yellow shirt at Limited and it feels so springy.
*note to self: stop taking self portraits in the girls’ bathroom mirror – the lighting is horrible!
I love yellow clothes. Such a happy color. The blouse and purse I showed above were also from The Limited. They’ve had cute stuff lately. My yellow shirt is perfect for the park where we’ve been spending lots of time the past couple of weeks.
Wishing those of you who have been affected by the huge storms going on right now safety and warmth…and maybe a plane ticket to Southern California? Meet you at the park. :)
