Another pairing of this skirt with denim--but this time it's a more fitted shirt rather than a button up. I got this shirt ages ago at Christopher & Banks--it's very flattering on.

I figured that Monday was a good day to go for the tiger print and the elephant necklace. Hey, life's a zoo!

I'd already worn this little outfit to school, so I wore it today to church. I love this skirt that I got at a VERY good price from Talbots.

For a busy Saturday filled with helping Megan move into her student housing at BYU, I wore this comfy outfit.

I went very casual and blue today for dress down Friday.

I decided to wear a little power red to help me get through the day.

I took a sick day from work to try to recover from the overwhelming effects of both the seizure last week and a flu shot yesterday.

I'm always happy when new purchase can liven up old things.

I'm trying to get full use of my summer things.

There are two things I notice about this picture. 1) I need to clean up after the huge rain/thunderstorm that blew everything around, and 2) I've put on a bit of weight right around my middle that I need to run off.

I love the ease and laid-backness of Saturdays. This was a fun and comfy outfit for the day. Vintage Print Scoop Neck Top, Talbots; Vintage 13" Bermuda Shorts in Fuchsia, Talbots.

Today was casual Friday, so I wore crop jeans and this amazing shirt I found at Chicos. And, I tried out my new yellow pointy toe shoes from Talbots, which my son was kind enough to say made me look like an elf.

For some reason, this sweater just makes me happy. And, this jewelry purchase at Macy's has been one of my best of the year -- I've worn this necklace and earrings to death. Vintage Tank, Talbots, Cascading Flowers Cardigan, Talbots; Cool Cargo Roll Snap Pant in Limonite, Chicos; Jewelry, Macy's.

I love this color combination! However, one thing I have found that I don't like are flats. Flats hurt my feet when I walk. I think it's because I feel like my foot is hanging onto the shoe for dear life, because if it doesn't the shoe will fly off and hit someone. Oww. My feet always hurt after wearing flats.

Today I decided to go for the red, black, and white combo that is so popular. These shoes have red power all over them. This outfit was extremely comfy--this skirt is ponte knit and stretches like a dream without looking baggy.

Today was my first day back at school. I wore this cute little number (I had to wear a tank under the top). I actually got several compliments from my students, and I felt like I looked pretty darn good, myself.

Quite frankly, I was bushed today after staying up all night, but I still needed to go to church to lead the music. I went with a favorite vintage Talbots outfit.

Today I slept in until around 10:00, which turned out to be a good thing because I got home from finishing what I needed to get done at school at 9:00 AM Sunday. Yes, an all-nighter.

Today was work and two more graduations - convocations for Mike and Alison. This was followed by a celebratory dinner at Red Lobster. Puff-sleeve Blouse in Aqua Blue, Talbots; Statement Necklace, Talbots; Ponte Knit Pencil Skirt in Black, Chicos; Earrings, Designed by Denée.

Today I went to my daughter's commencement and her honors graduation banquet. I also went to work. Whew... I am a busy woman.

This is what I wore for my second day back. The red really popped with the neutral denim, and if you look closely, you can see that I fixed my shoes. They are now wonderfully comfortable.

Today was my first day back at school, so I wore this to be a little dressy. Once again my Talbots clearance shoes are cute as a button but horribly uncomfortable. I think I've learned my lesson there.

Today is my last day at home before school starts tomorrow. I celebrated by wearing this fiesta shirt from Chicos.

This is what I wore to church on Sunday. I'm not 100% in love with it, but it worked. I'm still looking for the perfect yellow to go with this amazingly versatile skirt.

After wearing it with this belt, I also tried it with this one:

Tonight the BHW and I went to a neighborhood dinner group the Hansen's had in their lovely backyard, and it was a lot of fun. I discovered that I'm going to have to get a tank to wear under this shirt because it's a little too wide--the bane of my life.

After a week of looking pretty rough, I decided to pretty up for a weekend night home with the kids and the BHW. I think the next time I wear this I'll try a gray belt instead.

I actually spent most of this day wearing dirt as I finished off my paving project and moved some rocks.

Casual clothes for one of my last summer days.

This shirt is a favorite of mine, but it is unfortunately starting to show its age. These linen pants are the reason I don't have any other linen pants--I think they always look pretty awful.

Tonight we went to see 17 Miracles at the Scera Theater. What I should have brought was a whole box of hankies as it was a real tearjerker. This ballet neck T-shirt may have to go, as it always shows my bra. I am cursed with a size 8 torso and a size 10 bust, so wide necked tops are always a problem for me.
