What I Wore Wednesday

Okay, I am trying to be better at this...but I didn't take a picture everyday.  For the days I forgot...I just made a set at Polyvore...so here we go:

Most of the week I was just hanging out at home...here are the clothes I wear when I never leave the house:

Blah... I know.
Love my linen shorts from Gap Outlet though...$12
My black shorts are velour pants I cutoff ...$10 for the pants at Target
The capris I have are a bit more blue than these and I got them at a cute little shop in Provo called "Cozy" for $20
All of my tees are random and some were free, from sports, or less than $10 at Ross, etc.

Fortunately and unfortunately, I was forced to dress up every single day this weekend, including Friday...I actually took pictures this time!

Friday - Funeral and Luncheon


Shirt: Cutoff and hemmed from Ross...$4
Skirt: $2 Thrift, cut off and hemmed (Old Navy)
Necklace from Charolette Russe $8


Saturday - Wedding and Reception


Just switched out the shirt (this one was from Cozy and was $14)
With these shoes all weekend:


My sister's wedding shoes she just gave me :)  Thanks Jamie!

Sunday - Church


Top: Can't remember...its been that long...


Belt from "Alley Cats" in Seattle


Pencil skirt from Forever 21...only like $12

After church:


Took off the belt and switched out the skirt for my breezy linen shorts (Gap Outlet $12)

The Bathroom: Finished and Ready for Redecorating

I am bored of my bathroom.  Here I am just now finally posting pictures of it for the first time (after "decorating") and I am already bored of it.

BEFORE PICTURE HERE


I don't mind the silver tray my makeup sits on.


I like this towel hanger and the artwork we inherited from Trey's grandparents.


I like the wicker baskets, but I don't really like the toile soap dispenser...that was supposed to be incorporated better into the bathroom but that never happened.


I don't like the mirrors in the bathroom but we are renting so there isn't much I can do about that.


I like this little box me and my mom found at the thrift store.


I also really love this mirror I bought a while ago, but I need to do something different with this shelf I think.

Suggestions...please?

Posting this HERE


PS
For photos of my weekend go HERE :)

Bronzed Envy Spray Tan Giveaway


Some of you saw my bad sunburn the other day.  Not only was I in search of a good sunblock, but also a good spray tan. 
Behold:

Blakely tells us a little about the product:


My name is Blakeley and I live in Austin, TX. I am a stay at home mom of two boys. I always knew I wanted to start my own business, but I didn't quite know what. After doing some researching for a family member about safer, quicker ways to tan I came across Airbrush Tanning. I instantly fell in love with the idea and wanted to start my own Mobile Airbrush Tanning Service. I started Bronzed Envy in October 2008 and the rest is history. People were calling right away! I make my own hours, and am able to be home for my kids during the day. After 4 months I had to hire my fist "helper" and after 6 months, I was so busy I couldn't believe it! This service is so popular and women all over the place are attaching the word "addicting" to this service. All it takes is ONE tan and you are addicted! The results are a natural toasted almond bronze, with NO orange or red undertones in the solution! I know, because I've developed the color myself. I knew exactly what my clients were looking for, and what I couldn't find in a solution. I have clients coming to me after trying other places and stay with me mainly because they adore my color! I want to share this great opportunity with other women as well. I believe its the perfect business for stay-at-home moms wanting some extra income, or someone just like me, looking for something unique to start of their own. Its a fun, easy, low investment and high profit business! Make your own hours, be your own boss, and stay as busy as you would like! I can help you with everything you need to get started. Please feel free to check out my website or email me for more information!


You can also purchase products other Bronzing products on our site that you can easily apply yourself! It's all been perfected so no crazy skin tones and nasty smells going on! Be sure to check out our Self tanners and other products for sale HERE!!!!


"Tan in a can!"
It's the next best thing to an airbrush tan! It will give you an instant tan/color right away AND also develops into a darker tan over the next few hours! This stuff Rocks and is a best seller!!
Your very own jump start on Healthy looking beautiful skin!!




Blakely is offering a can of spray tan to one of my lucky readers!

What I Wore Wednesday

Alright, so I really want to start posting some of my outfits and get some feedback in that area.  So, these outfits are from a couple weeks ago, but I thought I would post them anyways...

Sunday:
White pencil skirt to church, then changed into my white jeans after.



Monday (Memorial Day-Fishing):
The sandals were actually black, but the exact same style...



Tuesday Work Wear (This was from like a month ago when it was still cold here in Utah)



Thursday (Running errands and doing a photo shoot later that evening)



That's all for now...Maybe I will have to set up my tripod and take some pics of me actually wearing the clothes...it is just so much work! :) (Maybe I just need to buy a full length mirror...)

Clothing in the Bedroom?


When Trey and I got the awesome opportunity to be a part of  this photo shoot, I got to go buy a pretty gown.  I really wanted to incorporate it into our bedroom decor, especially after seeing some of these images:

So, what do you think of my dress on display?  Weird?  Different?  Pretty?  Too girly?  Suggestions?


You can see the pictures next to my dress here.
