I thought I would give you two outfits today seeing that there hasn't been much blogging the past week. I really like this look. Very fun and flirty for fall. You can do this with any dress or jumper and you can add a cardigan and or a belt with it if you like.

I am definitely a boot girl so any outfit I can put together with my boots is a plus for me. :)

The outfit comes in around: $65

1. Forever21 Dress : $22.80
2. Walmart Leggings : $8.00
3. Old Navy Boots : $34.50

1. Old Navy cardigan :$14.50
2. Forever 21 tank :$17.80
3. Old Navy sandal :$15.00
4. Forever 21 skirt: $17.80

Summer Set

Nothing screams summer quite like eyelet lace and seersucker. With this inspiration in mind, I set out to find an outfit to share with you.

I first saw these seersucker pants in the j.jill catalog at my Mom's house and fell in love with them immediately, but they were $79.99. Imagine my glee when I looked at their website and found them $30 cheaper!

So here's my outfit. Inspired by breezy summer fabrics, and under $100.

Seersucker Pants - j.jill - $49.99 (originally $79.99)
Eyelet Top - F21 - $14.50
Cardigan - Pink Ice - $14.99
Sandals - Go Jane - $7.99
Sunglasses - F21 - $6.80
Fishie Pendant Necklace - F21 - $4.80

Grand Total: $99.47

I know the pants are a bit of a splurge, but in a neutral shade and in a classic summery fabric, they're a sound investment. I love yellow and navy together, and the belt can go over the cardigan (or under, if you're kickin' it old-school). And no summer look would be complete without sunglasses and sandals. (Especially if those sunglasses happen to be rose-colored -- Ooh la la!)

Let me know what you think!

I saw this on Facebook this morning:

Apparently they will have jewelry from 2 different name brand companies. As well as a Home Accessory Sale, Special Occasion Dresses, Gift Bags, Drawings, Demonstrations, Prizes, Treats, Fun, Etc.! Go check it out! (I wish I were!)

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, so kind of you all to remember (tee hee).

Thanks to Elaine over at Clothed Much for tagging me for Six Little Things that Make Me Happy. I will get to it as soon as I can!

Also, everyone must marvel at how clever A. from Academichic is. I want to steal this outfit in its entirety from her. (If you aren't reading Academchic, you should be.)

And chicibella is still doing her series on Fashion Trends with staying power, so don't miss the end!

Thanks for reading, and as always,

Happy Shopping!

Look for Less

Margot, from JCPenney sent along this look for less from their American Living collection. While I am not a fan of the original outfit on Katy Perry, I do love the American Living version. I love the navy/white combination for a really summery look. And let's be honest, what is better on a hot summer day than a comfortable t-shirt dress. Throw on some funky jewelry and you're all set! Here are my picks:The Prep in me loves pearls with the classic navy and white, so I'm loving these fatty pearl studs ($2.80, F21) with the nautically inspired pearl and gold ring ($3.80, F21) and these light gold bangles ($5.80, F21).

What do you think? Are you digging the preppy white and navy look or are you so over the nautical look on someone you're sure has never even been on a boat?

Happy Birthday!!!!

Today is Madeline's Birthday!

Happy Birthday to the uber chic-est girl we know!!!

Feelin' Blousy

Outfit: Around $75

A little pricier then what I wanted but I think these crop pants are so dang cute I couldn't help it. For the past little while I have really come to love light washed jeans with neutrals. I think with a summer tan it looks so pretty on the skin (you probably already noticed from my "Ah-Natural" Make-up post). I think these colors, or outfit, are a great transition into fall as well.

1. Dainty Flower Woven Top: $18.90
2. Chambray cargo crop pant: $39.99
3. Tera Gladiator Sandals: $15.80

What do you think of the outfit? Post a comment:)

Bargain Basement: Zenni Optical

Would you believe that the glasses picured above are all under $10?

A friend told me about an online store, Zenni Optical, that sells complete glasses (meaning frame plus prescription lenses) starting at $8. Naturally, this sounds too good to be true, but I checked it out all the same.

Now, I'm not going to tell you that you can get designer frames (read: no Versace, DKNY, or Calvin Klein), but you can find some pretty good-looking basic frames for not a lot of monetary commitment.

So check it out. I have not yet ordered from this site and I can't tell you much about their service, but I did peruse their policies and I was pretty impressed with what they had to offer.


Hey Everybody!

Unfortunately, this post isn't about the color salmon (athough you can read this old post about coral), it's about fishies.

We finally have our website up to sell the fish we are catching here in Alaska. It's called Tustumena Salmon, and I would love if you would check it out. If you know someone who likes fish send them our way!

I hope everything is going swimmingly for each and every one of you.

Ah- Natural

I wanted to share something a little different today. I love to post on clothes, shoes, and accessories, and of course ideas for the home, but what about that part of your body above the shoulders- The Face.

I saw this "how to" makeup and have been dieing to try it- realsimple.com. I love a natural look, and it looks great on anybody...Very fresh, especially great with that summer tan. From:

What You Want:
Dazzling golden liner that sparkles subtly.

How to Get the Look: Try Metallic Eyeliner

1.Start with a neutral shadow that's one or two shades lighter than your skin. Dust on the lids up to the brows.

2. Line the upper lashes with a brown eye pencil. This gives you a guide to follow when you apply the gold liner on top. The brown liner will also soften the metallic effect. ( A little secret that I learned: Line the inside of your upper eye under your eye lashes, as well as the the line of your upper part of your eye lashes (lining both sides). Don't put eye liner on your lower. This will make your eyes stand out like crazy. Add a little mascara and your set!)

3. Apply gold pencil liner. Choose a shimmery yellow gold; it will flatter most skin tones. "Stay away from formulations with chunky glitter particles, which often appear too sparkly," says New York City makeup artist Carlo Longo. ( If you don't want to use the metallic liner, use metallic eye shadow and brush a little above your eye to your crease)

4.When the emphasis is on the eyes, wear neutral makeup on the rest of the face. "Less is more with this look," says Longo. ( Use a little soft pink blush for a more natural look. A girls gotta have a just a little color on those cheeks)
