boot cut vs.straight leg - fashion Friday

Is it Friday again, already?  Yes I know, it can't come soon enough for most of us.  Today's fashion post has a couple of my favorite outfits in it and I am looking forward to sharing them with you.

This first one combines a few of my go to elements lace, cowboy boots and jeans.



The jeans are curvy boot cut from Loft and I love the way they fit and they're 40 % off right now in limited sizes.  I have been wearing skinny jeans so much lately that I'd forgotten how much I like the little flare of boot cut.  And combine them with comfy cowboy boots and I could go all day.  The white lace tee is also from Loft but it was from last year and is no longer available.  The soft peachy plaid scarf was a find on Amazon.  It comes in several colors and if I were in a colder part of the country I would order me a couple of more.

This next outfit is a favorite as well.



I bought this sweater from Loft in the Fall and we had such a heatwave through December that I never had the chance to wear it.  I am making up for it now.  Not only is it cute but it is so comfortable.  The back is the same paisley fabric as the bottom front and it falls below the hips which is flattering on my body type.  The jeans are gently distressed Liz Clayborne for JCPenneys and their on sale, too.  The are a bit relaxed and very comfy as well.

I found the tassel necklace at Walmart last year.

So that's it for this week.   Both outfits are casual and comfortable and something I would wear when I leave the house.   Which look is your favorite?

Five last minute kids Valentines

I was doing a little research on pinterest ("little" on pinterest being a relative term) for my grandson's Valentines Day treats for his class this year.  I thought with a weekend stretching ahead of us we could manage to make something inexpensive and cute and actually have it finished before the night of 13th.


There are countless ideas but I narrowed it down to these five to share with him after school.

easy chicken roll ups and super bowl cupcakes

I have to be honest when it comes to the super bowl for me it's all about the food, the commercials and half time.  My hubby is not the biggest sports fan so some years the game will actually go largely unwatched except for a sneak peak or two as we switch channels.


This year I'm heading over to a friends to eat view the game and plan on taking an appetizer and

styling open shelves - nesting

I must confess I have developed a little thing for The Pioneer Woman's dishes at Walmart.  I have been happily collecting them one visit at a time and with each new dish line I declare a new favorite.  And so it is with these adorable scalloped ramekins.  (I only have three that I purchased individually but they have a set of six online for a much better deal.)


It's no secret I love color in my d├ęcor and they add just the perfect touch of it to these open shelves I installed a few years ago.

keep your eyes open - fashion friday

Sometimes you find the prettiest things in the most unlikely places.


I was making my weekly Walmart run for paper and toiletries and happened to notice all the pretty new sweaters they have.  As I was practicing restraint with the folded cardigans, (in every color for

how to make mini fabric flags and a giveaway

Edited: This giveaway is now closed.

I was feeling kind of crafty yesterday so I decided to gather some pretty fabric and see what came of it.  As I started to pull out various prints and colors and laid them side by side it occurred to me how cute they would look waving hello as sweet little fabric flags.


And since it's been a while since I did a tutorial I thought this simple project would be perfect to

fresh flowers - ten buck Tuesday

I have always loved flowers both outside in the garden and inside on the kitchen table.  There's just something special about having a fresh bouquet in the house.  Don't you agree?

Here in Southern California there aren't many months that I can't go outside and snip something green or flowering and I love that.  But sometimes I want a little bit more than my yard has to offer.


And I know those of you knee deep (or house deep) in snow can go months without seeing any color for clipping.
