Fabulous Finds and Fashions-May 25, 2016

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  School is officially over, which means that summer is here and ready to go.

But there are always more outfits that need to be put together.

This week I was going through my closet to find things that I don’t really wear and I found this cute Chevron skirt.  I knew I had the skirt, but I didn’t know what to wear with it.  So, of course, this was my project for the week.

1. White Sequin Tank Top

Chevron Skirt 1

I love this top from Maurices.  It goes with so many things and it is easy to wear. And, of course, it happened to go well with the skirt.  I like how bright the top is compared to the muted skirt.  I paired this with Candies silver flip flops to finish off the look.

2. Black Tee Shirt

Chevron Skirt 2

Okay, so I know that this is kind of boring, but I like it.  The black shirt looks good with the muted colors of the skirt.  And, the shirt looks good either tucked in or out.  I paired this with my Bongo black shoes that finish off this casual summer look.

So, that’s all I have for this week.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my post and seeing my new outfits to wear.  Click on the pictures below to see what other Fabulous Finds and Fashions I have done!

Fabulous Finds and Fashion-Floral Ruffled Tank Top

Hello!  Welcome!  I hope that you are all having a great week so far and I hope that you are all looking forward to the plans that you have in store for the weekend.

So, this week, I didn’t find anything interesting.  But, I did rediscover a tank top that I had hanging in the closet.  I purchased the top from Maurices in January of 2015, and it has been extremely cute.  But, it has been very hard to wear because it is long and flowy.

So I took this opportunity to find some new outfits to wear with the shirt.

1. Tank Top and Shorts

Look 1

And here is the shirt.  You might be able to tell how it can be a little hard to wear.  I added a pair of Torrid denim shorts and a pair of gold Vera Wang flip flops to finish the look.  It is perfect for any summer day and perfect to keep cool.

2. Tank Top and Pink Capris

Look 2

I have owned this pair of pink capris for quite a few years.  They are Faded Glory and I bought them from Walmart for Easter.  They are so comfy and they look good with so many different shirts.  I added a pair of Mossimo blingy nude flats to finish off the look.

3. Tank Top, Lace Cover Up, and Jean Capris

Look 3

So, I forgot that I had this lace cover up in my closet.  It looks really good over the tank top.  I tied it in the front because it didn’t look good hanging loose in the front.  I added a pair of jean capris and pink floral Vera Wang flip flops to finish off the look.

I am very happy with my new outfit choices.  I can’t wait to wear them out to school or church or even shopping.  I hope that you like my new outfits, and I can’t wait to see you on Friday!

Finds and Fashions-Beige Edition

I’m back today with another Finds and Fashions! I decided to post another one like last week, but this time I used beige or tan as my base color. Beige does not have to be boring!!

My first beige piece is the cropped pants. I love these pants! They are just the right color of beige, they go with a lot of different tops and they are comfortable! I added a white sleeveless top with silver jewels at the neckline and then a coral and beige jacket over the top. The beige purse also has silver jewels. I finished it off with white sparkly sandals and silver hoop earrings.

*About the pup…she chooses to sit there! Every time I put an outfit down on the floor, she would come over and sit right next to it. Maybe she will be the next Top Model!!!*

I love this jacket!! Take a look at the close-up! There are dogs on it!! I found this at Goodwill last year and of course, I couldn’t pass it up! It’s probably more fitting for fall, but I did just wear this outfit last week since it was still a little chilly. I layered it over a cream tank top and teal pants, though they look more blue in the picture. I added a multi-colored scarf, turquoise and beige sandals, a turquoise bracelet and silver earrings. Just the dogs on the jacket are included this time. 🙂

I bought this kimono style floral jacket from GroopDeals.com ( I am not affiliated with Groopdeals, just enjoy shopping with them.). As soon as I saw it, I loved it! I paired it with a bright royal blue tank and white jeans.  A pearl bracelet, white earrings and blue sandals finish it off. I wore this for our school’s open-house a couple of weeks ago and it was very comfortable.

Fabulous Finds and Fashions-April 27, 2016

Hello!  And welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  I don’t have anything fashion worthy, but I do have a fabulous find!

I got a new car!

full cube

I have been saying for a while now that I wanted a new car (or a used car, but new to me).  I had a 2003 Hyundai Sonata that was getting to the end of the road.  It still ran and it was a good ride, but I was getting tired of getting out of the car.

 

I know, this sounds like a very odd reason to not want a car.  But when you are 5 foot 10 and have to crouch to get into the car, it gets tiring after a while.

So I wanted a car that was taller and I wanted something newer, like 2010 or newer.  And the car I was looking at was the Kia Soul.  I thought that they were absolutely adorable and they were the perfect size for me.  They were taller than my Sonata and had a lot of space to carry my stuff in.

So much trunk space!

And by stuff I mean my coworkers when we go to lunch.

The search was on to find a new car.  2 weeks ago, I had the day off from work and I was in town with my family.  Haley and I went on the lookout to find me a car!  But…it didn’t go so well.

We went to a car lot where we know the owner.  They had a 2012 Chevy Equinox which is the car my grandparents drive.  We took it for a test drive and it was really nice.  But, it wasn’t my favorite.  It felt a little too big for me compared to my Sonata.

So we passed on that one.

And then we went to the car lot that mom and dad bought their Dodge Journey from.  And they had a 2012 Nissan Cube.  And it was adorable!  Haley and I looked at it for quite a while.  And even when she had me look at a different car, I always went back to the Cube.

So this past Saturday, mom, dad, and I went to look more in depth into the Cube.  We got in the car and realized that the seats were extremely comfortable.  And there was soooooo much more space than anticipated.  And it was even cuter on the inside than the outside.

And we took it for a test drive.

And I fell in love.

Like, got 3 block and I was ready to take it home.

But, there was a 2007 Ford Escape that was at the lot that was a nice looking car for a cheaper price with less miles that was in a nice condition.  And, even though I loved the Cube, I wanted to give the Escape a fair chance.

And I got 3 blocks and knew I wanted the Cube.

So, we turned around and went back to the dealership…where I signed for the Nissan Cube.

And I am so glad that I did because it is an awesome car.  It has so much storage space (you know, for all of my coworkers lol), it is tall and I don’t hit my head on the roof, and it is so much fun to drive!  To be honest, I smile every time I drive it because it is so much fun.

So, yep.  That’s my fabulous find for the week.  It may not be super exciting for everyone, but I love it!

PS. There are lights that shine in the footwells.  It comes in multiple colors, but these are some of my favorites!

Fabulous Finds and Fashions-April 13, 2016

Hello!  Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  A time where we show off the clothes that we have purchased and now have to figure out what to wear with it.  Fun!

Alright, so the item on the docket today is this beautiful cover-up.  Honestly, I have no idea what I would call the style of the jacket, but I really like it.  I bought it when I was in 4-H for a Fashion Revue project and love how it fits and how it looks on me.

Unfortunately, I have only worn it with a single style of outfit.

I have always worn this with a white shirt and jeans.  And, even though it’s cute and it looks good together, I really need to find other things to wear it with.  So here are two different outfits that I found in my closet to pair with my jacket.

1. The Gold Skirt

Full Chinese Jacket and Skirt 2

 

I started off my closet raid by finding this gold J.Lo skirt that I bought on clearance from Kohls.  I’ve always liked the skirt, but it can be difficult to find things to wear with it.  I then added a brown tank top because all of my brown shirts either had design or weren’t the right style to add with the jacket.  So, I went with a simple tank top.  I then added a pair of brown American Eagle heels that I purchased from Payless.  Overall, I thought the outfit looked really cute and I like how it looked in it.

Isn’t it cute together?  I am glad that I found this outfit hiding out in my closet.

2. Blue and Khaki

Full Chinese Jacket and Shorts

I’ll start off with the shirt.  I have had this shirt for forever!  Like, since high school (okay, that was 5 years ago, but still).  But, I pulled it out of my closet and liked the color under the jacket.  I then added a pair of khaki shorts that I bought from Torrid that fit me really well and they are extremely comfortable.  I added a pair of gold Vera Wang flip flops that I bought off season at Kohl for $5 and a gold headband.

Before I leave it here, I must say that I pulled off the boho headband better than I thought I would.  All I had to do was pin my bangs back and I pulled it off swimmingly.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and I hope to see you all on Friday!
