What are you wearing for Valentine's Day

What are you wearing for Valentine's Day? πŸ’—πŸ’˜πŸ’• Big plans this year for the big day?  Staying in with the one/ones you love?  Skipping the day entirely because red isn't your color?πŸ–€  Whichever way, I gotcha covered!  I've never really cared one way or the other for all the hype, but I do enjoy red or pink, chocolate and all my boys, so I just go with it.  And if someone wants to bring me some pretty flowers🌹 or chocolate covered strawberries,πŸ“ then so be it! Looks like Valentine's Day falls in the middle of the week this year, so I'm guessing that many of you will be at work.  I gotcha covered!!!  This top is super cute, and though I haven't been in an office for awhile, I'd say work appropriate.  And, on sale for 40% off with code LOVEIT (50% off if you have a LOFT card).  Pants are the same deal.  Loft gets a big Valentine's Day πŸ’— from me!  Heels are also $10 with code KEEPSAVING!   Top , pants , heels , necklace The big question is,

Lofty Goals!

See what I did there?  I do love shopping at Loft.  Right now, all their new arrivals (and not so new) are 40% off, so I thought, why not go see what I could see!  Ponchos/Cardigans ---First up, I have a few wraps/ponchos (whatever you prefer to call them) and cardigans.  Now, I need another cardigan like I need a hole in my head, but when it's on sale and cute, you gotta do what you gotta do!  I loved this reversible checked poncho.  It has armholes, which is always a plus for me.  Love the colors as well.  Size down though, it's big.  I tried the M/L, but needed the XS/S, which is saying something for me! Poncho , button sleeve sweater Next up is a marled coatigan.  I don't know what the heck a "coatigan" is.  I guess it's what happened when a coat and cardigan mated, but can't say for sure.  Whatever it is, it's cute!  I sized down to a medium in this one. Coatigan , striped tee And last in this category is another poncho.  This one w

Nordstrom Rack Gold!

Hi everyone!  Well, I did what you all asked and veered away from Nordstrom!  Okay, so not far, as it's Nordstrom Rack, but still!  I love it when I find things I had in my cart at Nordstrom that sell out, and then pop up at the rack!  That's exactly what a few of these guys did! First up is this cutie little Bobeau flutter sleeve top.  I nabbed this up at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale in July, and now it's at the Rack.  Woohoo!  I love it!  Super flattering on!  I'm wearing in a size L, and it's roomy enough to enjoy my dinner, but not so big it's frumpy.  Pick it up now and have a cute summer top waiting for you.  It's a winner! Top , Jeans , Booties , Similar Booties , Necklace Next up is this cute little Bobeau cold shoulder top.  Or wait, is it a cold shoulder top???  Well, let me tell's a one shoulder, cold shoulder top.  I wore this out on a girls' night to see Bad Moms Christmas and a stranger even told me it was cute.  Now i

Going out, or staying in?

Saturday night...Going out, or staying in? Congratulations!  You made it!  The week is over, and you made it through all your Saturday errands and little kid sports events.  It's time to kick back and relax.  But the question is, will you be going out, or staying in??? It's the age old dilemma really...unless you have kids, then it's usually kind of decided for you.  BUT, maybe you're a lucky parent, blessed with great children, that like to try to eat at new places and don't complain about every...single...thing.  That's not kids start fighting over who gets stuck sitting by Mommy the moment we get shown to a table. Maybe they'll color for 2 minutes until they start begging to play on our phones.  After a 10 minute argument over that, and the fact that they have to get white milk instead of chocolate, they'll do a find-it, or word search, but not without the help of Daddy (because Mommy doesn't know how to spot a cow in that farm picture

Welcome to Buy the Boots

Welcome to the first blog post of the year!  Actually, it's my first blog post every, so be kind! I figure, new year, new adventure. If you know me at all, you'll know that I do love the fashion world. Browsing new clothes, especially sale ones, definitely takes me to my happy place. With a big ol' scary birthday looming in the near future, I kind of figured it's now or never to try to set out to do something that I think I might love...almost as much as taco night! Over the past year, I've been following a few a my favorite fashion bloggers. I prefer to shop on-line, and return in store. Yes, I'm a serial returner and might be part of the reason our local mall is going out of business...sorry about that!!! But the one thing I've noticed through all my perusing, is that most of my favorite fashion ladies are cute, adorable, teeny little things. XS, petite peeps...the kind of girl I always longed to be. However, petite I am not. Teeny, I am not
