What I Bought

I could spend hundreds of $ on clothes, shoes and accessories each month. But I learned a long time ago, thanks to my mom, to shop smart and not spend a lot of money on material things. My mom always laughs at me when I say " I got a new ____." Several of my friends are always in awe of the deals I find online, which is quite often. I have noticed that I am branching out with my style over the past few years. I am willing to take a few more risks (nothing too crazy). Here are the items that I purchased last week:

Dillard's- $11.90, Original $34
This is a very interesting shirt. I love the color and the  cape-like sleeves. 

Dillard's- $48.30, Original $138
I have wanted a one shoulder dress for some time now and I just haven't purchased one yet.

Target: $22.99
I got this shirt in an XS and the colors are so pretty. 

Dillard's: $62, Original $175
There are so many things I love about this dress. The 3/4 length sleeves, the v-back, the stripey sequin pattern.
I wore this to a wedding this weekend and got so many compliments. 

Marshall's: $19.99
Maxi dresses can sometimes swallow you and make you look bigger than you actually are.
This dress has a great fit and the stripes are slimming. 

Marshall's: $19.99
I love the classic look of this crochet top.
An adorable top to pair with shorts this summer.
Kohls: $16.20, Original $54
I picked this beauty up online for super cheap! I usually don't like to pay shipping but I bit the bullet this time
and I am glad I did. This skirt is adorable and fits great! I bought a size 2, for reference. 
If you watch The Bachelor, you saw Leslie wear a skirt similar to this on her date with Sean in one of those tropical locations. There is a blog called Possessionista that helps you locate clothes worn on TV shows and Leslie's skirt was so popular that is was sold out. I did my own search and found this gem. The only sizes left are 8,10,12

Showering Christy

This past Saturday we hosted a bridal shower for Christy Carter. I have known Christy for a little over 2 years and we have become good friends. She is engaged to Austin, one of Kyle's golfing buddies. Austin and Christy got engaged in June and are getting married on April 6th. They asked Kyle and I to be in their wedding and we were happy to accept. We had the shower at Lilia's house in Sapulpa and it turned out beautifully.

Later that afternoon, we met the family at Andy B's for some bowling and belated birthday celebration.

We followed with dinner at Louie's. All 9 of us crammed into a big booth. I love times like that when you realize how your family really loves each other and can be that close to each other, literally.
We got home and Kyle wanted to have a few people over to celebrate his birthday. He turned 31 on Feb 2 but had to attend his grandma's funeral in Ohio on his birthday. Yesterday we ate breakfast at BBD, took the dogs for a walk, went for a run, Kyle played golf and I worked an event at Southern Hills from 5-7.

This week is going to be busy, but there is nothing on our agenda this weekend! I have plans to go out to dinner at Red Rock with some friends...you know we can't have a completely free weekend :)
