OOTD- Shopping my closet and the sale!

With Kim's idea to shop our closet I dug through to find something to wear yesterday for a short meeting with our designer.  I wanted to 'dress up' but not look like I *tried* too hard, you know what I mean right? I love this dress it's comfortable and the perfect dress that says *I look nice and did not even try* even if we all know that is not the truth at all!  So what did you think about round deux of the tag sale?  I managed to find a little something!  Here is what I wore for 2 hours yesterday (because as soon as I got home it was back to jeans to finish cleaning up my house!)...

OOTD- Sunshine and Peonies!

Who is excited for The Bachelorette premier tonight?  I AM!!  Now if Anthropologie has a sale it may be too much excitement for one day, and then the week just goes downhill from there!!  Really though this is the last week of school for my daughter and then onto Summer fun!!  We have no real plans for a Summer vacation, maybe camping we'll see!  Mostly just building the house and packing.  Here is what I wore to church on Sunday...

This outfit is actually from Wednesday night when we had a 'GNO' and went out to dinner at Texas Roadhouse (mmmmmm sweet potato) then to the hospital to visit our dear friend who just had a baby!  It was so nice to get out and eat a dinner uninterrupted!  I don't know if this counts as my *cheat* item but I did get one thing from the sale the Pezza dress my hubby actually paid for it since he was in Chicago and wanted to get me something.  He just told me to order it so I did... in both colorways because I am not sure which one I will like better!  Here is what I wore for our GNO...

We had an eventful weekend here!  My son decided to give my daughter a 'hair cut' I love having little girls and LOVE doing their hair!  So I was beside myself when it happened, I curled her hair on Sunday and think I may be able to do this until it grows out (in a year!)  Here is what I wore to church yesterday...

The tag sale is tomorrow... I am on a *shopping ban* and will use my 'cheat' item this week hopefully this top hits sale because I am all over it!!!

OOTD- I am not a Sailor, but I might be a home owner soon!

Yesterday we signed the papers and our new house is being built!!!  If everything goes through as it should *fingers crossed* we should be moving this summer sometime.  I think I am a little nervous to get my hopes up because we have had so many things go wrong in the past.  I am so excited but kinda sad because I seriously live in the best neighborhood in the entire state of Utah, and will deeply miss so many amazing friends I have made here (we are only moving 15 minutes away so it's not that bad.)  My mom taught me to 'bloom where you are planted' so I have high hopes that I will feel the same way about where I live in a year.  Yesterday to sign the papers I dressed as a sailor...

Here is a picture of our house *almost* we changed the outside a bit by making it two different shades of grey, adding more stone and making it a 3 car garage.  We also are building on a hill and have an amazing view of the valley, which gives us a walk-out basement.  I am so excited and will show you pictures of the progress as it happens!  
It will have 5 finished bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, ahhhh room to put all my crap!  I cannot wait to join the club and finally become a homeowner!!
I truly feel blessed to have a hardworking husband who is making this all possible, and a sister who is such an amazing home decorator *and when I can afford it will help me make it look so cute!*

Maxi love from F21!

This dress arrived in an obnoxious yellow bag yesterday and I tore it open and immediately tried it on.  It was love at first try and I am planning on wearing it on Mother's Day for our family dinner.  Can you believe I got this tank, mini-cardi and dress for less than 30 bucks?  I know F21 is all the blogger buzz but, I cannot believe how great the things F21 is coming out with lately, and how much I have jumped right on the bandwagon (and proud of it Fo-Sho!)
Dress Forever 21: Retro maxi
Tank Forever 21: Basic knit tank
Cardi Forever 21: Cropped Knit Cardi
Shoes B Makowsky: Gaby Sandals

*For sizing info- I got a medium in the dress (I think a large would have fit great too), large in the cardi and tank (I usually am a solid medium at Anthro for reference) so I recommend sizing up if unsure.

OOTD- She wore a black polka-dot top!

Did I mention Spring is here?  Finally we are getting some beautiful weather and with it- stitches!?  My daughter was running around in the yard on Monday and cut her foot she ended up with stitches to close it up- should I tell you this is her second set in a week (last time it was her head?!)  Yeah, it's been a little crazy here lately!  Yesterday was quite a sale... I did pull the trigger on Ardennes skirt because it hit second cuts.  Here is what I am wearing today...
Jeans Joe's: my next pair here
Belt Anthropologie: High Gloss Belt
Shoes Anthropologie: Vantine Pumps

*I know I told you I would do a review on these little flats, they came and were really snug.  I am trying to track down a red pair in 7 1/2... we will see!*

*I found them at Endless they should be here tomorrow!!!:)*

OOTD- Jewelers choice!

I sort of felt stuck trying to style this cardigan because it's so unique I wanted to style it with a little 'unique-ness' so I dug through my closet and put this together.  I decided last minute to belt it because I thought I was looking a little bloated (because aunt flow is here visiting) and needed something to cinch it in.  I am wearing another piece from F21 I am really loving that store lately!  Here is what I wore to church yesterday...
