Outfit #16

Sofia wanted to be in the picture

I wanted to show my boots close-up but Sofia didn't want to move :P

This is just precious! I'm rubbing off on her big time!

I woke up this morning cursing to myself, "Why can't weekends always be long weekends?" "Why do I have to come in to work today?" "Why don't I have a nanny?" Sigh... And then it dawned on me, it's Friday!!!! I have no business complaining! Obviously, the cursing didn't last very long. I had a full day ahead. There is a daughter to feed and dress. There are financial statements to review and reports to write. But first things first, what to wear? I'm not the type who plans what to wear the next day the night before. I just basically think through the stuff I have and mix and match them in my head. Yeah, I'm that talented hahahaha.... Kidding aside, I did give planning the night before a bit of a try. And I ended up changing my mind and wearing a different outfit the next day. So my mulling and trying on outfits the night before ultimately became a waste of time. So after a few of these incidents, I just stopped doing it. I didn't see the point. I'm convinced however that it will save me time in the morning. I just need to convince myself to stick to the original plan LOL...

I told my co-workers about the 30 of 30 Remix by Kendi and asked them what they thought of me joining. They didn't seem convinced that I could do it. No surprise there, they know what kind of a shopaholic I am. I can't stop thinking about it though. I guess I will sort of follow along on the side. Safest bet if you ask me :) I can still shop wooohoooo.... There is still a 50% off sale at RW&Co. We're talking 50% off the last ticketed price, not original price! These are my kind of deals - dirt cheap! LOL... I think it will end this weekend so I think I'm going to go check it out tomorrow. We'll see what the husband says. He hates going to the outlet mall. I can't really blame him. I could easily spend two hours at RW&Co. alone. Then there's Nine West, Esprit, Mexx, Le Chateau, Gap, Town Shoes, Brown's, etc. etc... Aaahhh, so many stores, so little time :)

So for today's outfit, I found this old old old old scarf I bought from Old Navy. It's such a lovely combination of colors that I didn't need anything else with it. The mustard sweater was purchased for a whopping $4.95 and I just love love the color! The jeans was bought off of ebay. I would never pay full price for designer jeans! The thought of paying $200 for a pair of jeans is completely alien and downright ridiculous to me. So I hunt for them on ebay and I've been lucky enough to score a few pairs :) All that hard work paid off! But then, shopping is never hard work for me hehehe...
