Hello beauties! I hope you are getting back into routine on this Tuesday wherever you are in the world.  It was a rough Monday for me that is for sure, but I survived. That also reminds me, I am very sorry about my mullet/bad extension hair do going on in a few of these photos.  I don’t even have a mullet hair cut or hair extensions, my hair was just not having a good day.  Okay, so my hair never has a good day, but today I giggled when seeing it in a side view for this post. I thought who cares, it is going up. Trying to keep it real! Oh, and pardon the ‘sitting’ wrinkles on my skirt. I have a desk job and the good ole’ sun does not give me much time to shoot my photos.

Well enough of that bad hair day and wrinkles, your next question might be windowpane?  Yes, that pattern on my sweater is called windowpane in the fashion world these days.  And would you know it looks exactly like an actual windowpane. Who would have thunk it?  It is common on sweaters, shirts, and pants. You may have recognized this pattern while out shopping.  I love black and white and this sweater was no exception this past weekend for 60% off. Yes, you just read that correct, 60% off! I almost picked it up a while back by held out for a major deal and I believe it was well worth the wait for the 60% off price tag. This skirt is another story in itself , but very quickly I scored it on sale for less that $20! BINGO! I was able to score great deals and stock up on some winter necessities for my wardrobe. Oooppps! Some retail therapy never hurt nobody.  🙂

What do you think of the windowpane pattern? Are you a fan? YAY? NAY?  (Don’t be afraid to comment below, I love hearing from you!)

XOXO,

Jessica

Holy Chic Stripes

summer stripes

This weekend was still quite warm here in Indy. Todays outfit post is centered around these blush colored striped Gap shorts I got on sale this past weekend. Maybe ‘Sale’ is not the correct word, more like a bargain! And ladies, this is why I always take a quick browse at those daunting sales racks.  They are always picked through, but you never know what will be lurking in your size. Gap was having a huge sale on shorts and other summer items.  I picked up this pair for $5.11. Yes, that is not a typo, $5.11! I did see online they are still regular price, so make sure to check your stores clearance.  Check out your local Gap to see if there is something worth your while.

This Kate Spade clutch was my first purchase on Poshmark.  It is one of my favorite accessories and glad I got it at low price this past spring. When I clean out my closet I post them in my closet on Poshmark!

State Fair Time

Last week my husband and I enjoyed some fun time at the Indiana State Fair.  It is always a good time to enjoy fair foods and the outside enviroment to round out the summer. Its always fun to check out the huge tractors on display for purchase. I think I found my new ride? We also checked out some of the 4H projects that students work really hard on all year to bring to the Indiana State Fair.

I have always loved these horse stables at the fair

This was the first night we went for FREE day!

We went twice in a two week period. Once for FREE day in which we cut out the free entry coupon in the newspaper. Score on a freebie!  We were only at the fair an hour or so due to it being a weekday after work. The other night we went was $2 Tuesday! Entry into the fair was only $2 per person. Also each food vendor has a $2 item making some of your favorites only $2. This is n  a deal since it usually cost an adult $10 for entry at the gate and most food is double/triple the $2 cost. I would also recommend $2 Tuesdays for anyone with kids, I believe there is a $2 deal for the fair rides as well.

The second night we went it was very chilly outside.  It definitely did not feel like August weather.  Below you will see the outfit I threw together for comfort to walk the fair and stay a little warm since it was chilly.
