I love summer sales!

File this under “I’m So Happy I Can’t Stand It” or “Wow! I Love Summer Sales!”
Either way, I made a couple great finds this week and have to share!
First, strolling The Rack, I snagged these black gladiator-ish sandals from Cole Haan.

Then, not even looking for shoes, I saw these neutral/metallic Franco Sarto sandals and realized I actually DID need them! I mean, you can’t wear black sandals with everything, right?

Finally, doing a little summer shopping for my girls, I found this totally out-of-character crinkly shirt.

Bet I don’t have to tell you why it’s out of character…(see the title of our blog for a hint!)

Just when you thought…

I have to admit, up until recently, I’ve been feeling pretty good about our challenge.

A couple days ago, I posted about how the weather was starting to make my wardrobe difficult. That frustration continued on to the next evening.

A simple meeting of my book club at a restaurant caused a small significant meltdown in my closet. I had nothing to wear! (Insert drama here).
I tried this combination:


Blah! This shirt has barely been worn and has been in my closet way too long. Bye bye!

Clothing meltdowns aren’t fun, as evidenced earlier by my sister’s posts. When the dust finally settled, I had on Lucky jeans, white top from Marshall’s, grey (yes, grey) esprit cardigan and my new Franco Sarto sandals from Nordstrom.


This outfit was pretty simple and I felt good in it. Maybe I just need to remember that well used phrase. Keep It Simple.
