Style Savvy Weekend Rewind: Made, Snagged and Wore

A fairly low key weekend found me sleeping as much as possible and catching up with friends. But I did do some formal dress shopping with my little sis that was lots of fun—I can’t wait to see pictures from her big event!


On Sunday morning I awoke to: “I’m hungry! You said you were going to make breakfast this morning!” So I put together this little Mexican breakfast tortilla for my 13-year-old stomach. A few scrambled cage-free brown eggs, sprinkles of an organic “Mexican” cheese blend, chunks of fresh organic salsa, a whole wheat tortilla and viola! Breakfast tortilla! I didn’t have any, but the kid said he loved it and I think it looked lovely—don’t you?

I had a great time at my book club meeting on Sunday afternoon discussing (?) our most recent read A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali. At said meeting, I was forced to create crafts, and since I’m probably the least crafty person I know, those little guys may never see the light of day. But it was good to discover that I have friends who will cheer me on and bolster my self-esteem no matter how horrible I am at something. “You’ll get lots of practice and get so much better!” they practically chanted. Time will tell. But for now, I’ll stick to buying things instead of DIY-ing; everyone will be safer that way.

And speaking of buying things, I snagged a couple of lovely spring tops this weekend. Animal print is mayjah this season—and by print I mean shapes of actual animals, not leopard patterns. I thought these little ponies were just too cute to pass up, and I love the exposed zipper on this yellow striped top.

I’d been searching for a great yellow polish to add to my collection, and I think (hope?) I’ve found one in this Julep “Blake” polish.

how gorgeous is that curve?! * sigh *

A great red pump has been on my wish list for quite a while, and I thought I’d finally found the perfect one in this Jessica Simpson patent version. The heel height is perfection, and the cut is just beautiful. Sadly, said cut was a little too tight across the top of the widest part of my foot, creating a weird foot muffin top thing; and the store I was in didn’t have the next size up. I had to walk away from these lovelies on Saturday, but I’m hoping to find them again and have them fit!


nails inspired by my journal cover

denim dress from Francesca's

I got a little inspired by my darling journal cover and did a trifecta of pastel color on my nails this weekend, using OPI ‘Do you Lilac it’, OPI ‘Alpine Snow’ (seen here and here) and Ginger and Liz ‘Boy Toy’ (also seen here and here).

The orange accent on this denim dress is such a great pop of color, and I threw it on for book club on Sunday. It was so comfy and, with a scarf and a low heeled pump (and low for me is about 3 inches), perfect for the 70+ degree weather we got to enjoy.

How was your weekend? Did you do or wear anything you loved?
