Day 30 - Gloomy Tuesday

I am halfway through my no shopping for 60 days challenge! I call it a challenge because it truly has been one! I want to go shopping so bad! There are so many cute fall styles appearing in stores and I want them all! On the flip side, it has been nice to save more money for our new home and it has been fun being creative with my own wardrobe!
Here is my Tuesday, day 30 outfit:
Blouse: H&M
Blazer: Gibson - Nordstrom
Pants: H&M
Shoes: Cathy Jean
Clutch Purse: Thrifted (also $2.99!)
Belt: Thrifted - $1.99!




Today was a cloudy, kind of gloomy day compared to the heat and sunshine we have been having. This is why I chose to wear neutral colors.

After work today my husband made me dinner. We love breakfast food and tend to eat it more often for lunch or dinner than breakfast! He made me an English Muffin sandwich with bacon, egg, and cheese. It was delicious and very sweet of him!

Day 29 - Lace and other lovely things

I am a huge fan of lace as you can see I wore a lace top yesterday. I paired it with a vintage inspired bag and my vintage inspired shoes to give it an ecclectic feel. I love all things girly!

Yesterday was just another Monday. I went to work all day and then went to the last night of my book club meeting. We finished our book and to celebrate we had an ice cream social. Everyone brought ice cream and their favorite toppings and we endulged. We had a really good time and I am going to miss gathering every Monday night with the wonderful group of ladies! I am sure another book club will be planned sometime soon!

You may have noticed that my pictures in my previous post are not loading anymore. Something went wrong with my Flickr account and I am working on getting the pictures back up! They should be up soon!

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Nothing like a fresh salad for dinner with some fresh fruit!

Tomorrow morning my husband is leaving until Monday on a trip for his friends Bachelor Party. I decided I don't want to stay home alone so I will be sleeping at my parents house all weekend (in the house where I grew up!). I am excited to spend the entire weekend with them like old times when I used to live there! My old bedroom is now a guest room but I am sure I won't sleep there and will just sneak in bed with my little sister ;)

First thing after work tomorrow: Pedicure!

My sister got me a gift certificate to get my nails done like a year ago! Because I don't live near my parents anymore I have never used it, the salon is so far from where I live now! Since I am sleeping over this weekend I can finally use this gift certificate!

Looking forward to this weekend......
