. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Six Things

January 8, 2013

Six Things


There are six things you need to know about this outfit:

1. This dress was purchased in the little girls' section at Target and was under $4.

2. I've written about these shoes before and how they were $3 and that Chris thinks they are ugly.

3. My sister in law made me this scarf for Christmas and I LOVE it.  She is definitely talented.


4. I bought this flower ring at Old Navy last week and it makes me happy.

5. I wanted to wear my favorite grey tights with this outfit but ripped a whole in them with my nails when I was putting them on.

6. Speaking of nails, if you look closely my nails are nicely painted which is a very rare occasion.


Hope you are having a good week!  After not working for almost 7 weeks I am very ready for the weekend already!

That's awesome. How the heck was that in the little girls' section?!

Chrissy + Nate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The little girl section is great for steals! Great find! And that scarf is gorgeous! AND thank you for the reminder: I really need to paint my nails!

JJ said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The dress looks sooooo comfy! Especially in that in-between regular and maternity clothes stage. I would live in dresses right now if I could! And the scarf is beautiful -- what a great talent to have (I'm jealous of those who can knit and crochet!)

Amazing.

I used to work in a store that sold kids clothes and I was always hunting for things that would fit me!

Girls section?!! Never thought to look there! Power rings are the best, they do make a girl smile. And, I'm thinking you and empire waist lines are gonna be besties over the next few months ;)

Kristine Foley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Danielle Smiley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ripping tights is the worst. That's why you need to keep extras on hand!

Betty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I often check the kids section of stores too...especially at REI when I need new long underwear or a fleece. So much cheaper! BTW...love that scarf. I've been craving a comfy infinity scarf-if only I could knit!

I just had to commiserate because I ALWAYS tear my tights while taking them on and off. So annoying! You look adorable, though. :)

Love the dress, what a deal!!! And I never got a chance to congratulate you on your last post. I am so so happy for you!!!! It must have been so scary dealing with the bleeding, especially after going through everything else you have been through. I always thought it would get easy after IVF...I couldn't have been more wrong. Thinking of you and again so so happy for you and your family!!!

Gina Gao said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Alisa Marie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I can't believe you got that from the little girls section for $4 - best deal ever!!! I almost bought a sweater from the little boys section last week, then decided I just didn't need it.

LOL! Have a good one! Hope you are feeling well!

Alison @ Get Your Pretty On said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Gorgeous scarf, that is talent! I've been shopping in the girls section at Target lately too. There are some gems there. :)

What a deal on the dress! My husband often thinks purses and shoes I buy are hideous and then I hang my head in shame. ;)

Glad I found you via the "Look What I Got" Link-Up!

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Not really a fan of the shoes but they work for you!

Love infinity scarves! I was gifted one this Christmas and I adore it.
