Graduation Saturday

FullSizeRender (4)Had the pleasure of attending the 2015 Georgia State University graduation ceremony for the son of a good friend of mine.  The plan was to dress cute, yet comfortably & cool for the hot weather.  Needless to say, for the month of May I’ve been shopping which wasn’t the plan. In my defense, I had to shop for Mother’s Day gifts & since I am a mother a gift was needed. Image result for smiley face

The outfit worn is a combination of items from my current wardrobe and, an item I purchased as a Mother’s Day gift to myself. I’m a total sucker for sales & even more of a sucker for New York and Company.  I was able to score an outfit with shoes for my mom, the cutest pair of linen capris for my grandmother & a few items for ME.  No, I’m not selfish, I just like to treat myself.

Went extremely easy on the accessories to keep the fit simple. Sometimes less is better.

Lace, Pink & Green

Another chilly spring day here in Atlanta.  I’m a lover of cool weather, but this bipolar weather… cold today, hot tomorrow business is ridiculous. Sheesh!!!
FullSizeRenderFound another lost item from my current wardrobe, the lace top purchased a few years back from Dress Barn when I worked there. The shoes, fairly new to my wardrobe; purchased some time this year via Shoe Dazzle, worn a few times already, but never featured on the blog. The cardigan worn for a little warmth & to cover up my arms at work.  I can’t have the “guns” out at work…lol. The accessories I’ve had for several years, not worn very often, but definitely not forgotten.

Comfortable Get Up!

Two weekends ago I celebrated my son’s 11th birthday.  I figured, since he is the greatest son in the world & enjoys quality time with me- “Road Trip”! We visited the Wilderness at the Smokies in Tennessee. He had a blast at the indoor & outdoor water parks; me, I had a blast watching him have a blast & enjoyed the water too.

Most of the weekend I spent in a swimsuit, but for the few moments when my swimsuit wasn’t worn I enjoyed comfortable, casual clothing.  The weather was warm enough to wear short sleeves & flip flops. A hint of spring weather!  IMG_1068

It wasn’t sunny, however there was enough sun to shed some light on the days despite the rain we also experienced. Well, this trip was the perfect opportunity to break out a few new items.  The Vera Bradley tote bag is new to my wardrobe recently purchased from VRx Pharmacy.  Found them on Instagram all the way in City Creek, Utah.  It arrived just in time for our little trip- happy girl! The other new item is the t-shirt purchased at Target. You’ll see this t-shirt again a few times on the blog.  Oh yeah, I have a thing for t-shirts too.  Okay, okay, I must confess, I have a thing for all things “cute.”
