Wow! Monday, why did you come so soon? Sorry I have been MIA for a few days, but with my son returning home from college, I am a little distracted. Between my constant trips to the grocery store (his newfound workout schedule has him hungry all the time), juggling our cars (seems we are one short now that he has returned), and keeping my younger children focused on their schoolwork as we head into their last week of school (is there a reason why we need to schedule a gazillion tests and projects the last week???), I have been busy to say the least. That said, I found a great deal and I want to share it with you. I love the ease of a simple tee shirt dress well-accessorized for a stylish, yet simple outfit as the temperatures rise. One of my favorite looks is a nautical-inspired striped dress with some Keds and sunnies and I am ready for errands, sight-seeing or whatever my children decide we ‘need’ to do. The BOSS dress on the left is from Nordstrom
and costs just under $500 and the dress on the right is from Forever21
and costs just under $30 for a budget-friendly option. Those cool sunnies come from a site I just discovered called Fantaseyes
and they are running a cool 30%OFF sale right now with the code Summer30. Be sure to check them out for sunnies and other fun accessories to dress up your outfits. Hope you have a great start to your week!

Tonight is a big night for us as we will be attending a Transition Banquet for our daughter marking her move from one school to another. Big deal in our household made even bigger by the fact that she will be giving a speech as well as performing a flute solo during the evening. I am sure I do not need to even mention how we agonized over what to wear, further complicated by the perhaps more important question about which killer shoes we should purchase as the perfect accompaniment for her awesome new dress. Of course, my mom intervened and bought her the wildest and most awesome Steve Madden heels–with an inappropriately high (but fun!) heel. Being the true over-achiever that my daughter is, she started practicing walking in the heels a couple of weeks ago and mastered not only going up and down steps, but doing so carrying her flute and music, all without spraining an ankle in the process. While I am thoroughly looking forward to the evenings festivities, I must admit that I am not going to breathe easily until her performances are over and she is safely sitting beside me.
Once this evening is over, I can turn my attention to picking up our oldest who will be returning home from college after his freshman year. I cannot wait for the weekend and it is a long weekend at that. Woo hoo! Great sales abound and I plan to hit a few stores to enjoy the great deals. Forever21
is offering 30%OFF a huge selection of summery items from shorts and tops to bathings suits and accessories. The adorable sunny yellow tank–one of my top picks–is about $8.00 after the discount while the fringe-inspired earrings come to about $3.50 after the discount has been applied. You really cannot beat those prices. Happy Wednesday!
