Skirt Anyone?

So remember how I go to church every Sunday and dress up but nowhere on this blog is a Sunday picture?  And don't even worry that this is Thursday and I'm getting around to posting Sunday's outfit - we've had a busy week.

Sally Hansen Nail Effects

As soon as I saw Sally Hansen Salon Effects I had to try them!  The hardest part about buying Salon Effects? Picking out the pattern.  I literally sat in front of the display for 15 minutes.  I chose Cut It Out and headed home to put them on!
While it did take me about 45 minutes to apply to my hands, I was happy with the result.  Extremely professional and they did last 10 days as advertised.  The best part was no dry-time.  I put them on, fixed parts of dinner, and nothing came off or ended up in the food. :) I only had minor problems with chipping - simply because I forgot one of the steps by the time I got to the last fingers. So make sure you rub your nail with the edge of the nail file that's included.
The package comes with 8 different sizes of strips, an orange stick, and file.  Since I had extra, I did my toes too!  I ended up cutting two of the strips so they could fit my teeny toenails.  The package tells you not to do that, but since they were on my feet, I did it anyhow and didn't have any problems.  

I will definitely use these again! They were a conversation starter everywhere I went - shopping malls, restaurants, and church.  Have you tried Salon Effects yet?  What did you think?

Don't forget to enter for the Pedicure Set giveaway - get your feet ready for those Salon Effects you're going to use!

Happy Father's Day

August 2010
Last Father's Day we spent it with family and packing for the hospital.  A year later, we get to officially celebrate Husband's first Father's Day.  To the great dad he is, and to both of our dads,
Happy Father's Day!

I've got the blues

I know, I know - I don't wear skinny jeans and every time I look at this picture I think, "My hips look huge!" (proportionally speaking).  I wanted something low-key and comfy for a night out with a friend.  I went with a top from Ann Taylor Loft (40% off), jeans from Gap, and shoes from Antonio Melani (previous season). 

Have you entered the giveaway for the pedicure set yet?

BDIB: Neon and Neutral

Welcome to another edition of Pretty Shiny Sparkly's Bloggers Do It Better! This round: Neon + Neutral.  Yesterday was a little Neon + Neon, so here's the + Neutral!
Shirt from Gap (50% off!), skirt is custom, shoes from Ann Taylor (previous season), necklace from Cookie Lee, belt from Gap (previous season).

I had forgotten about these shoes until I pulled out my neon skirt for today's challenge and remembered I normally wear this skirt with those one brown shoes.  (Don't tell Husband or he'll make me quit buying shoes.)  And then I forgot I owned this belt too.  Maybe, we just shouldn't mention this entire post to Husband! He can be surprised when he comes home from work! :)
See the outfit for BDIB: Prep School, BDIB: White Out, and BDIB: Color Blocking.

This is one of those outfits...

...where my kids will ask me "What were you thinking? Who wears something like that?"  And the truth is, this happens to be one of my favorite outfits of the moment!  I've had these shorts for years and when I bought this shirt from Gap at 50% off I immediately thought of this look.  It's ridiculously bright and perfect for summer, and for me!

Shirt from Gap, shorts from Nordstrom (previous season), shoes are Jeffrey Campbell (previous season). 

The shirt has a sheer shoulder and to keep it modest I'm wearing a half-tee from Mia Bellina, which I love.  I bought the Classy Sonata in white.  It's a great smooth fabric - dressier than a plain undershirt - finished edges and I think I need to own one in every color!

Do you have any outfits you know your future children will cringe at?
