Casual Diane Freis


Butterfly Earrings: Gift from Sister-In-Law
Orange Watch: Gift from Brother
Black and Yellow Bracelets: Burke's Outlet
Belt: Local Leather Shop
Tank: Wal-Mart
Skirt: Refashioned from a Diane Freis Dress

I just love this skirt.  Love it!  It has crazy color, crazy pattern, and it's SILK!  It just floats.  What a dream to wear.

And the earrings!  They flutter around on my ears light as air.  So much fun to wear.  They are real butterfly wings that have been laminated.  I had fun matching my bracelets to my earrings. :o)

Happy Birthday



See that face?  That is my "I'm so excited I got an Orange Leather Motorcycle Jacket for my Birthday" face!!! :o)  Thank you Hubby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why the broom you ask?  I wanted a pretty broom and my sister found one with Orange and other bright colors on it!  Sorry it looks Red in the picture, but the sun had already set so we didn't have good light for photos.

I got lots of great birthday loot from my WONDERFUL family!  They really know me and bought the perfect gifts.

I think I will frame that last photo.  Yes I will!  Rocket wanted to relight the candles and blow them out again. :o)  Hubby singed his fingers a bit lighting alllll of them, so we didn't go for a second round.

I kept my outfit pretty simple for my birthday, but I still loved it!  The top is thrifted vintage.  The skirt came from Dillard's on clearance.  The sandals are Crocs.

Only a half hour left of my birthday, it was a great day! :o)

I Have Giraffes on My Ears


Giraffe Earrings: Claire's
Heart Necklace: Gift from a Friend
Silver Rope Necklace and Silver Ring: Gifts from Hubby
Yellow Necklace and Black Stud Bracelet: Burke's Outlet
Ceramic Watch: TJMaxx
Dress: Gift from Mom
Belt: Local Leather Shop
Zebra Wedges: Dillard's (clearance)

The goal in picking out my dress was to wear something I hadn't worn in a while.  I must have succeeded, because someone commented at church on my "new" dress.  I had a hard time convincing them it is old.

This dress has a bubble hem (remember a while back when those were just THE THING?), but it's a subtle one, not too poofy.  Since the dress has an overall classic look, the bubble hem comes off as a fun feature, rather than a trend defined item.  At lease that's what I think. :o)

My favorite part of this outfit has to be my earrings!  Aren't they the most fun? :o)  I giggled over pairing them with this outfit, as they seem to be more something worn with a t-shirt.

It's also been a while since I wore the big Silver ring Hubby made for me for Christmas a couple years back.  He has plans to make me some more rings, maybe I should ask him to make them different sizes so I can wear them all at once?  It'd be like wearing brass knuckles! :o)

PS:  I've decided to try "open" comments.  If I get weird comments from the Annons, I'll just go back to making y'all sign in or maybe that horrible word verification thingy. :o)

Bloglovin

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So I ran into a brick wall with my reader today.  It would NOT pull up any of the blogs I follow!  I have had this happen before, but a quick refresh usually pulls them up.  Not this time!  So here I go trying out Bloglovin!  I hope I like it. :o)

Does anyone have any input on Bloglovin?  Love it?  Like it? Hate it?
