Last week, I took the boys to get a haircut. I noticed one of the stylists wearing this adorable shirt with colorful birds on it. I gushed at how much I loved her shirt and asked her where she got it. She responded, “Target. No, the Loft!” In my sneaky stalkerish ways, I immediately got on my phone to find the shirt online. I found it rather quickly, but was super bummed that it was out of stock. Not one to take no for an answer, I contacted my friend, who happens to be a manager for a Loft. She said that they sold out of them quickly, but that she could find one in another store for me. She found it for me and it was 60% off AND they shipped it to my house. All of this before we even left the salon! And all it took was a little persistence, my iPhone and one rock solid connection that hooked me up! Woot!!!!

The hubs and I attended a wedding yesterday of my old high school students. It’s crazy that she is old enough to be getting married, like a good hard slap in the face with reality. Life moves on whether we want it to or not. In the words of Ferris Bueller “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once and awhile, you could miss it.” Also, after just having gotten through a season of all my friends getting married/being a bridesmaid in many weddings, I realize how nice it is to JUST be a guest and sit and enjoy the festivities with my husband and not have to be pulled away for pictures, etc. Funny story: This dress was actually purchased to be my bridesmaid dress for my friend Cheryl’s wedding (my second out of three dresses purchased), so I was stoked to finally get to wear it. 🙂

What I Love: Jean Jackets

Posted on

I remember watching “The Wedding Singer” and being completely enamored with Drew Barrymore’s jean jacket and became determined to add one to my wardrobe. And thus began my love affair…

Why I Love Them

-They are so versatile. Just like jean pants, they go with practically any color, pattern, texture or fabric.

-They are crazy comfortable….because they are denim. Duh.

-They are timeless. I mean, hello?! I pray denim never goes out of style.

How To Wear Them

-Dress down with some camo and/or cut off shorts to dress it down.

-Add an oversized scarf, statement necklace and brightly colored skinny jeans.

-Dress it up with a belted maxi (perfect date night outfit).

And I want to get married to my husband all over again, so I can wear a jean jacket with my wedding dress. Why didn’t I think of that six years ago?!?? How cute is this?!
