#target #haul #clothinghaul they had light sweaters and other basics on sale/clearance so I decided to stock up. All this ended up being just under $60!

What I wore: breezy spring Turquoise & Jeans

I’m very much a jeans girl. The darker, the better (but not black, black shows cat hair too much.) Deep deep navy, no distressing. HOWEVER when I’ve been wearing the same jeans for awhile they do in fact become somewhat faded which is the case with what I had on today. These are actually the lightest blue blue jeans that I own.

What I wore in these photos (this is really all over the place):

  • Top: Turquoise Shirt / Blouse / Tank from TJmaxx picked up last fall
  • Jeans: Walmart (ugh – yes, Walmart) from a few years ago
  • Shoes: Sandals / Flip Flops in red and tan with silver and crystal embellishment from a boutique in Bowling Green KY
  • Shrug / short sleeved jacket: Target from a couple of years ago
  • Necklace: long silver necklace from Chicos (really long ago)
  • Earrings: basic silver round hoops with a flattened edge from Talbots (also long ago … but I’m not sure how long because I have two pairs of the exact same earring bought at different times.)
  • Toenail polish: Zoya “Lo” … I need to repaint my fingernails.

I’ve been meaning to share more outfits of the day like this but just haven’t gotten around to it. I do however wear jeans a lot and I do re-wear a lot of the same outfits which means that sometimes what I wore just is not that interesting … or I think it wouldn’t be. We’ll see if I can make this more of a habit. Though don’t worry, I will probably not be posting every single day. You can see a pattern in the colors I tend to like photographing though. Lots of turquoise and teals and aqua… I swear I have other color shirts in my closet!

AND I’m sorry, these last couple of days I’ve been feeling rather prolific. I promise I will not keep this double posting nonsense up (I’m going to post something about coral and yellow jeans in a bit.) 🙂

What I wore: Gray Slub Shirt and Rainboots

More catchup posts here with photos I took in the Spring.

 

This is a gray slub shirt I bought at Target.  I think it was clearance and I actually bought it because I wanted something comfy for sleeping in to go over a tank. It looked ok though with a tank under it and thought it was worth getting a few daytime uses in before it pilled (which it eventually did… as I suspected it would.)

Ignore the fact that the photo on the right is grainy, I was trying to show it with the rainboots (link is to a previous comparison review of rainboots.)

It was an ok shirt but I’m getting tired of shirts pilling so quickly. So far the only ones that don’t pill are the ones I buy at Chico’s but that gets boring after awhile.

The necklace I’m wearing was thrifted and actually used to be silver and a muddy nude. I painted all of the nude portions with a navy nail polish and it looks a lot better.

Is it just me or can it be hard to put together a good outfit that doesn’t involve a dress when it comes to rain boots?


These Kamik “Jennifer” rain boots are actually getting a lot of use. I ended up wearing these last Friday to run through a very muddy corn maze in Versailles (Kentucky) as well.

They wash off fairly easily which is nice. Tim’s boots (just an outdoor hiking boot) on the other hand involved scraping and scrubbing.

Derby attire

Full Derby Outfit 2012 with hat

If you’re from KY you know that the Kentucky Derby is a big deal here. My planning this year failed miserably because Tim was actually at Churchill Downs serving up the Woodford Reserve $1000 Mint Juleps. And somehow most of the people I know were either at the event working, out of town, or just wanted to quietly watch the race at home (and I think some were partying with a group of parrotheads.)

But I decided I was going to dress up anyway, posted on facebook to see if anyone had any last minute invites and crossed my fingers that a party would either appear or someone would at least go have a Mint Julep at a bar with me to watch the Derby itself.

Nope, no such luck but I was determined to head out anyway. I did luck out that there was actually an available seat at Harry’s bar over in Palomar.

And I chickened out on the hat mostly because I didn’t want to either block someone’s view, hit someone with it or take it off and have to find a place to store it.

  • Hat:Forever21 Basketweave Floppy Hat for only $5.50! I had come across this the night before and thought it was perfect.
  • Dress: strapless from White House / Black Market bought a couple of years ago.
  • Cardi: Target Mossimo bought a couple of years ago. Because I didn’t want to wear a strapless bra with the strapless dress I threw this on so you couldn’t tell. Usually I don’t tie it but it worked better with this dress tied.
  • Shoes: Simply Vera heels from Kohl’s mentioned here previously.

And in case you were wondering, I did drive through betting at Keeneland on Friday. I really wanted Hansen to win. Actually the horse with the best name was Daddy Long Legs but usually those that I’m drawn to like that tend to come in dead last. I had bet Hansen, Bodemeister, and Take Charge Indy for the trifecta and I had also bet a couple of others as well. The only winning ticket I had was Bodeimeister to Place (which means come in first or second) so I will get $6.20 back of the $18 I bet 🙂
