Swimwear 2013 Favorites

Last night when I should have been writing the post for today I was staying up late, browsing the internet for bathing suits while catching up on episodes of The Following. That show is soooo good, but fair warning it’s not for the squeamish. Don’t do what I did and watch it in the dark, by yourself, until midnight. Trust me it’s not a good idea.

A decidedly less squeamish topic (depending on how you look at it ) are the swim collections for 2013. In between closing my eyes and trying not to look at the television screen I found some really great suits. Apparently high waist retro styles are in big time this season as are a lot of great one pieces and bikini’s. We live on a lake (duh) and also have a pool so swimwear is definitely one of the main staples of my summer wardrobe.

Happy Friday Friends! What are you all doing this weekend? The Sickies have hit our house. Nik has had a slight fever so there will probably be a lot of cartoon watching, soup eating and negotiating to get him to take his medicine. I’m not above a bribe or two. Hopefully during all that I’ll be able to sneak in a project or two.

Since coming to the realization that my wardrobe is non-existent, I’ve been keeping an eye out for great clothing ideas. So far my favorite places to find outfit inspiration are Pinterest (of course) I’ve been pinning to my Fashion board a lot.  I also like to read fashion blogs and Polyvore is another favorite.

Outfit-1-25-2013

Sometimes though the outfits are awesome but the price tags are out of control. Like $750 bags and $300 jeans…yeah, not going to happen. I found this board and tweaked it to make it my own.

This sweater is great and versatile, I love the color and I can see myself wearing it into Spring instead of a jacket.

This plain t-shirt from JCrew is a great buy on sale. When getting dressed always seem to forget the jewelry I think it really finishes and outfit so I want to start wearing it more. The necklace, bracelet and earrings could work well with a bunch of outfits.

These boots are great, wedges are my favorite because you can wear a heal while still being relatively comfortable I need to snag these while they’re on sale.

I actually have this pair of jeans and love them. They go on sale a few times a year which make them a good deal to look out for.

Finally the python bag is A-MAZE-ING I need it like now.

Well I’m off for the weekend, but before I do let’s talk fashion. Does anyone have any tips they’d like to share? What are your favorite stores? Where do you go for outfit pics, any favorite fashion blogs? Tell me in the comments I’d love to hear.

Wardrobes and Wellies

I was cleaning out my closet a little while ago, going through my winter clothes (and shoes) sorting the clothes that don’t fit, clothes that have gotten old and clothes I just plain old don’t like anymore. At the end of it all I came away with big old giant pile of clothes to donate.

Pleased with myself at my glorious organization skills and perfectly neat closet I took a look around…and realized I have nothing to wear! It was kind of shocking. Me? The person who loves to shop with nothing to wear? This couldn’t be possible.

But when I thought about it and thought about the last time I’d gone shopping for clothes I really couldn’t place my finger on it. What I came up with after pondering for a few more minutes was that I must have just forgot to go shopping.

In the midst of a baby being small, a new home and my full-time work at home status from my job I had managed to forget about my wardrobe. I’ve tending to skip the clothes shopping lately in maglie calcio poco prezzo favor of shopping for house related stuff. Absolutely not the worse problem to have in your life but definitely something I’m going to change.

So my latest New Years Resolution 2 1/2 weeks late is to start to replenish my wardrobe. Slowly, buying things that I love. Guess what? It’s kind of liberating knowing that it’s time to get out there to shop. Which brings me to the Wellies part of my ramblings.

I have been dying to get my hands on a pair of rainboots for a while. I mean it’s winter, it’s cold and wet. I think that’s enough of a reason to buy a pair.

Now my question is colorful or classic? Do you own a pair?

Beach essentials

Last week we had a great vacation at the beach. While there I though that a great day at the beach should be all about easy style, fun in the sun and relaxation. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite pieces that help do just that, including the perfect beach tote, a striped towel and a great pair of sandals with a touch of sparkle and of course super cool shades for my next trip to the beach.

I’ve fallen in love…

…with this entire online boutique  francesa’s Collections.

This store makes me excited.

It makes my mind whirl.

I’m smitten with their handbags.

I love, love LOVE this one.

It’s called Doctor In the House…reminds me of Gregory House.

I’m infatuated with Gregory House.

The Gold Buckles are fabulous with enough room to stash all you’re stuff.

Oh, and did I mention it comes in hot pink too!
