Weekend Birthday Haul

As you know from this earlier post, Saturday my mother-in-law Cindy, sister-in-law Holly, and I went on a “shopping spree” to celebrate my birthday. As much as I wanted to challenge myself by shopping places other than Old Navy, we ended up there and I scored the majority of my birthday haul. It was almost ordained by Heaven and impossible to resist because of their 30% off storewide sale over the weekend.

We first stopped at Maurice’s where I found this lovely pair of studs on clearance for only $2.99!

Then we stopped at JC Penny’s for Cindy to find a pair of new dress pants for work. There I picked up these two tops. The first is a long-sleeve button-up flannel shirt by St. John’s Bay and the second is a Boyfriend cardigan by Liz Claiborne, which hits about thigh-length on me since I’m only 5’3″. The back of the SJB button-up is about an 1-2 inches longer than the front, which makes it pair great with my black skinnies.

We hit several shoe stores in between JCP and Old Navy. Cindy and HJ had great success; however, I did not. I was on the lookout for a new black handbag but just couldn’t find one that I “just had to have” which is my selling point on most items I buy now. I guess it’s a new thing in my older age.

And lastly, my finds from Old Navy. I adore my new flats and have worn them almost non-stop since I bought them. And yes, I know I’m late on the chambray fad, but in my defense, like the black handbag, I just haven’t been able to find one that I knew I “just had to have” until I found this one. It’s the perfect shade between light denim and dark denim. And the skinny jeans, were more of a necessity buy. The only other pairs of jeans I have are my boot cut jeans, boyfriend jeans, and my maternity skinny jeans. And God knows I have vowed no more pregnancies. Two is good enough for me. Any more babies will be adopted.

Also, Jimmy, if you read my blog, just get me a gift card from ON for my Christmas gift because I left behind a green sweater that I’m literally mourning over. Thank you, sir!

{Refashion} Denim Shorts + a bit of joy

One last super-easy, quick refashion for your week.

These jeans were previously refashioned from a pair of jeans that I wore post-pregnancy with both my babies. They were fine as refashioned skinny jeans, but I found myself never wearing them… So going with my “chop-it-if-you-don’t-like-it” theme this week, I got rid of those legs to make a new pair of long shorts:

These I like a lot more than just another pair of skinny jeans. I left the edges raw to fray, but I may go back and hem them if I decide I don’t like it after a wash.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll leave you with a little pick-me-up…

You are created like no one else. You are fashioned with a specific purpose that no one else can complete. Stop comparing yourself to others, who themselves are created for separate plans other than your own. You cannot complete their purpose. They cannot complete yours. Love yourself for all that you are.
