A LITTLE MOTIVATION

I’m walking much better now that my fall is almost 3 months behind me. I still have a ways to go before I can run again, but I’m back in normal shoes and am beginning to take on a little height.

Nothing keeps me motivated like a pair of new shoes. And twice the pairs of new shoes means twice the motivation!

These were not on sale, but they were so reasonably priced to begin with that I’m not bothered by it in the least.

The THOUGHTFUL Gladiator Sandals on the left were $51.00.
The TREAT ME Heeled Sandals were $40.00.

Gosh I hope they are as cute in person as they are in the photos!

SHELLS ON SALE

As a child, I was confused by the concept of a shell. What my mother called a shell looked to me a whole lot like a tank top and I always wondered why my mother had so many “shells” in her closet.

I totally get it now!
They fit perfectly under a jacket and avoid the whole bunched up sleeve scenario. They are also a smart option for summer when it is blazing hot outside, but you need a jacket indoors to counter the blasting AC.

Now I am growing a shell collection of my own!
This week Ann Taylor marked everything on their website down by 40% and I picked up this classic shell in 3 colors. The promotion reduced each top from $39.50 to $23.70 each.

POSHMARK PICKS

It’s been a month or so since I posted about my Poshmark finds, so let me get you caught up.

J.Crew Cabled Cashmere Sweater $18.00
Jack Rogers Nude Sandals $74.00
J.Crew Tweed Jacket $40.00

Summer is a great time to buy winter clothes because they are all on sale! I am always keeping my eye out for the reduction notices on Poshmark for additional savings.

My go to Jack Rogers sandals finally kicked the bucket last week after having been resoled twice and so it was time for a new pair. I found these never been worn Jacks for only $74! That’s a savings of about $30.00. Not bad!

TASSEL CRAZE

I’m loving the tassel trend and Misa’s hot pink earrings are all the rage right now, but man those things are expensive!

I have found the same look for less!

I found this vendor on Etsy who is selling these tassel earrings for $9.99. With shipping it comes out to $13 and change. They are made in Thailand so it took about a month for them to arrive, but they were well worth the wait! Other colors are available so check it out!

JAMS WORLD

When I was little, my family would go to the beach and my mother, sister and I all had these light weight flowing coverups/summer dresses that were very colorful. I had all but forgotten them until my sister brought it up about a year ago. We all had a laugh remebering the silly prints and the good times we had at the beach growing up. As a joke, my mom bought one on eBay for my sister this past Christmas. She actually loved it and now wears it to the beach all the time!

A couple weeks ago, I went online and found one for myself! If you buy them new they are around $125.00, but this one on eBay was only $24.00!

I went to the beach last weekend and was excited to wear it for the first time.
I have to say, this dress is pretty great. It kept me super cool. I wasn’t hot in it once! The pockets are a nice bonus also.

This is now officially my go to beach/pool coverup.
