I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I enjoyed mine!  My husband and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary(!!), and we also had time to take the kids to the Shedd.

I wore outfit this to see all the sea creatures.  It was comfy and appropriate for chasing the kids around in, yet the sandals, jacket, and touches of gold still made it feel like me.

Casual Outfit | An Old Favorite

easy casual outfit - light-weight sweater, jeans, sandals

 I haven’t been putting too much creative thought into what I’ve been wearing recently.  Instead, I’ve been relaying on my old favorites…especially this sweater.

This sweater is so great.  It’s light and airy.  It’s looks great with skirts, dress pants, and jeans.  Just a real winner in my book.

Have you been able to break into your spring clothes yet?  Or has Mother Nature been playing dirty tricks on you?  We had snow – yes, SNOW – yesterday.  Mother Nature, you’re one sick chick.

Before I Shop

In between snow falls and freezing temps, the kids and I took a trip to Target.  We just needed to grab a few things including a pack of men’s Hanes t-shirts for me.  I can go through white t-shirts like water.  I wear them with everything from jeans to pencil skirts, but they’re just so hard to keep white!

Anyway, while we were shopping, I saw tons of cute things for spring!  Now I’m not one for impulse shopping, but if I hear about a really great top or bag from a friend, then I’m more likely to pick one up for myself.

There’s this new site called Before I Shop.  It’s a place where you can read or write reviews to some of your favorite stores.  It’s pretty much like having your girlfriends tell you all the great stuff – and maybe not-so-great stuff – that they’ve recently bought.

Another cool thing about Before I Shop is the shopping tips section.  The Target page shares the stores markdown schedule, best times for shopping, and decodes those clearance stickers.

Next time I make a Target run, I gonna have a few tricks up my sleeves.

And, don’t think I’m too crazy, but there’s another giveaway for you if you’d like to enter.  I think you might.  $50 to spend at a favorite Before I Shop store like Target or Victoria’s Secret – sounds like a good time to me!

Being a busy mom, I really don’t have that much time to do in-store shopping.  And to even think about setting foot into a store now that Christmas shopping has officially kicked off – forget it!

That’s what drew me to ShopStyle by POPSUGAR.  They’re an online site where I can find all my favorite places – they even alert me when my favorite brands go on sale!

This month ShopStyle is showcasing their new look, and they invited a few bloggers to get creative, too!

For my layout, I picked a few of my current cold-weather favorites: thrifted sweaters, a vintage black and gold purse, skinny jeans from Old Navy and GapAnn Klein tan boots (this wedge with a tassel is also cute), and black booties from Franco Sarto.  Of course I had to include a bold statement necklace, some aviators, and a little lip color.

Right now ShopStyle is offering up to 30% off plus free shopping.

I think I’m about to put the kids for a nap and get my shopping on.
