Awkward and Awesome Friday

Happy Early Holiday Weekend!
I hope everyone has some fabulous plans to kick off their summer.
Awkward:

  • Sitting on the 18th hole of a golf tournament enjoying yourself when a golf ball goes whooshing right over your head into the crowd.
  • Forgetting to turn off your curling iron and placing it in the plastic holder your store it in.
  • Planning to wear a white shirt and discovering the only clean bras you have at the moment are blue, black, hot pink and orange.
  • Walking in a neighborhood you haven't ever walked in and getting completely lost, like you might not ever find your way out, lost!
  • Having a young woman with perky boobs perform your mammogram.  
Awesome:


  • When your friend comes over to your house while you are out and leaves a little gnome on your flower pot! (see above picture)
  • The sounds of a gentle thunderstorm.
  • Finally getting your veggie patch planted.
  • My new go to breakfast...Overnight chia oatmeal.
  • A fun 3 day holiday weekend.
I pulled out these fabulous, pajama like pants again. 
 I dressed them up a little bit
 from the last time I wore them. 
 Not only are they the most comfortable pants ever, 
they are quite versatile.

I would love to hear about your awkward or awesome moments in the comments.

Leopard + Pink

Leopard and Pink!
What is not to love about that combination??
I went for a super casual look today.  
The neon pink and leopard combo
 are what makes the casual look not so plain.
I added some light pink sneakers to round out the look. 
 I love a sneaker with a skirt as long as you 
don't get that clunky "Working Girl" movie look.
What were we thinking in the 80's?
I kept the jewelry very simple and delicate.
I love a look like this for just running all those everyday errands.

Are you a leopard and pink lover?

Pineapples

If you haven't noticed, pineapples are having a very big moment!

Not only in clothing, but pretty much everywhere!

Being raised in the south, 
the pineapple has always been popular
 as a sign of hospitality.
I am excited to see it out in the world 
being used in so many ways now.
 I also like wearing it because the color yellow 
seems to be having a big moment as well.
I am not a huge fan of the color and wearing yellow pineapples
 is a subtle way of getting some of that
 sunshine yellow in my wardrobe.
I went for a pretty casual look today. 
 Soft green pants with my vibrant yellow pineapples.
  A bit of jewelry for some punch
 and I am ready to walk out of the door.

Do you have any pineapple clothing?
Do you use pineapples for decorating?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

We made it to another Friday!
I hope you have some awesome plans for the weekend.
Awkward:

  • That awkward moment when someone points out the size tag strip on the back of your pants.
  • Husband asking where I got the bruise on my ankle and me telling him it wasn't a bruise, but self-tanner.
  • When you are out walking and a crazy, ferocious dog comes out of nowhere and scares the poo out of you.
  • When you get two different recipes mixed up in your head and you end up using parts of both recipes.  Luckily the results weren't terrible.
  • When you find out good news about someone and you are waiting for them to tell you themselves and they take forever doing it. 
Awesome:
  • A great Mother's Day weekend last weekend.
  • Son2 going on an all out cooking spree all week.  Awesome food and no cooking from me.
  • Road Trip!
  • When you only have one item at the checkout and everyone lets you go ahead of them.
  • Answered Prayer!!!!!
I actually wore this last Sunday for Mother's Day. 
 I love the color combo 
and 
the mix of pattern and texture.

Let's hear your awkward or awesome for the week.

Chevron

Boy O Boy!
It has hit 90 here, where did spring go?
I hope this isn't the trend for the coming weeks.
Cool and comfortable is the name of the game around here
 if you plan on spending any time at all outside.
I went with a breezy shirt in a bold and colorful chevron print.  Chevron is always cheerful and fun in my book.
Add some navy shorts & penny loafers:
 you are ready for summer.
I kept the jewelry very simple and dainty. 
 The chevron pattern is bold enough on it's own
 and dainty jewelry is much cooler in the heat.

I hope you are still experiencing Spring wherever you are.
