Basic Ballet Flats

Some more bargain shopping, I found this classic ballet flats at Land's End and they have become a staple in my wardrobe. I go through several pairs a year and these are cheap enough to wear and then toss—plus most of the colors are real leather!

Just replenished my stock with a pair of classic black and and a pair of nude suede. This should at least last me through the summer. Plus, Land's End has always a ton of coupons of you google it. I got 20 dollars off and free shipping. Total bargain!

Emma Classic Ballet Shoes $34.99 @

Beach Chic Frugalista

Just picked up my first one-piece bathing suit for years. It's actually been so long, I can't even remember which one it was (obviously very memorable).

I found this blue and red stripe halter neck one-piece at for only $27.50! It only got one star in the customer rating, but it's so cute I'm willing to give it a shot. I can always return it, right?! I can even wear it as a tank with a cute pair or white or denim shorts.

I have almost the same one in black and white for Campbell. Birthday prezzie from baby Mimi & co. We will match perfectly.

I'm addicted

...and I just can't get enough--of this song by Black Eyed Peas. Perfect way to start off Memorial Day Weekend and the summer season. Just another few hours of work until I wrap up and head out for a long weekend. The weather report states 82F and sunny all weekend long.

Hot and sunny--just the way I like it!

Word of the Day


Looking for Glasses

New Wayfarer in Avana

New Wayfarer in Dark Avana

RB5244 in Avana 

In desperate need for new Rx glasses--I think the ones I have currently are from five or six years ago. I always end of with decision anxiety and leave the optician with just contacts. I saw these frames in Lenscrafters window this afternoon and I have to admit, I'm intrigued.

Optical collection of Rx frames from Ray-Ban. I'm a huge Ray-Ban fan, so I think an appointment with the eye doc will be in order.

Swing Time

Cutest little thing in the world =)

If we are a little lucky, by next weekend we may have our very own playset all set up in our backyard (maybe this is a little ambitious, but who knows...)

Zara Summer Lookbook

Found the most adorable summer clothes at Zara's on 5th Avenue yesterday. I'm absolutely loving all the colorblocking and bold stripes, bright colors and short skirta and dresses. Checked out their summer lookbook today, and I have already found some more cute stuff—I think it will require a return visit for some additional purchases. All of the styles above are under $100 (most of them are actually less then $60.00)

Return of Glamour

Amazing old fashion glamour from the red carpet in Cannes.

Birthday Girl

I seem to be running a consistent three days late on all my posts lately, so apologies to you all for not keeping up lately. 

Had Campbell's birthday bash on Saturday, and of course the gods promised rain and chilly temperatures. I thought I was quite lucky, when I woke up to one tiny little ray of sun and no rain—I was kind of hoping it would stay dry and somewhat warm. But no such luck—four on the dot the skies opened up and the rain started to pour. Ugh. And I had set up such a pretty dessert table! Right as guest stated to arrive we had to lug all the stuff back inside again. The irony of it all is that as soon as we had brought everything in, the rain stopped. Typical.
