…working on getting my large images to load faster …sorry – I hate that! …also, it seems Explorer has the most problems but I’m always on either Firefox or Safari which seem to run fine. Solution = don’t use Explorer :)

What I’m Wearing
* White top/tunic …Rix Chix Clothing {bought this in 2006 for our wedding/honeymoon ..to wear by the pool …and really, this look is much better bra-less but I couldn’t actually leave the house without a bra, let alone to work}

* Skirt …Victoria’s Secret I just got this {the box arrived Friday afternoon} and I was actually going to return it until I remembered it was on sale for $14.99!!?!?!? I bought it a size bigger so I could wear it lower/close to my hips and belted up at my waist …accompanied by

this most comfortable little sweatshirt dress and the black patent fit flops both of which I have been wearing since I opened the box Friday afternoon. I loved them both so much that I went back online and ordered this dress in every color and got the white fit flops too. It is THE PERFECT “around the house” outfit for me. I love being barefoot and these fit flops are effing amazing. NOW, I wouldn’t say that I’ve actually gotten a workout from wearing them BUT I think they have definitely strengthened my foot and ankle muscles. And really, they’re not actually that horrible looking. They remind me of a pair of converse flip flops I had in or around 1995.

* Earrings ..silver hoops with hearts …Farmer’s Market
* Belt: Forever 21
* Sunglasses: Tom Ford
* Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
* Long Cardigan: Liz Lange ..but I got it at a thrift shop years ago not realizing it was maternity wear until I looked it up for an outfit post once l.o.l. still love it.
* Fabulous Silver and Snakeskin bangle/bracelet from the designer jewelry store ice.com …find it HERE …it’s on sale!
* Hair …still wet …twisted and clipped.
* Wedges …Jimmy Choo …post where I bought them wearing them for the first time today …and really, they are so comfortable!

- the lighting in the gallery sucked today …and no, I did not iron my skirt. lol.

I hope you all had a wonderful 3 day weekend!

    I love that sweater dress!! I noticed the website says order one size up–Would you find that to be true? Also, I’m afraid the pockets will make it look too bulky in the stomach area, which is a problem area for me as it is. Does it look bulky in real life?

    Hi Maegan, I just LOVE, love banded bottom tops, shirts, dresses– they seem to go with any figure (mind being a JLO booty that I can’t shake–) but the Choo’s are fab…

    I was reading you story on this, I admire women and men who work together to achieve their dreams and goals– once you move into your home it will be a “high” like you have never experienced, cause it is all yours–

    I worked in Japan for 8 years… I’ve been there.

    i’ve been stalking that dress and finally bought it with some other stuff to get free shipping…funny how they suck you in that way.

    i wish i lived somewhere where being bra-less was not so tremendously unaccepted. i have the perfect shaped boobs that look oh so chic with no bra. in europe. but not North Carolina. oh well. there’s always around the house for the husband to see.

    I love the skirt- style, colors, everything. I also think it’s so funny/clever that you are wearing that really long white top underneath! The innovation is endless!!!
