Happy Tuesday! This week is a busy one for me!  I am off this weekend to Kansas city and Chicago. This last weekend i really cleaned out my closet. I got rid of 14 bags of clothing. I have been really under going a change in my style. I only actually kept a few things that i felt really like me. I kept this cute little sweater and skirt. I thought i would post them because i am celebrating over 100 consecutive posts today! To think this last year, i was merely a baby blog. I have grown so much since this last year. I want to thank everyone and (even the my fans on GOMI) for driving me to do better !


Mad For Plaid


One thing i love about fall is all the pretty colors. More recently i have been breaking out my plaid and flannel. I haven’t been feeling well, so i have been browsing lots of cute fashion ideas. I am obsessing over these plaid items i found. I am in love with plaid for the fall. I hope you enjoy the fun things i have found! Have a great monday.

A Little Casual

Happy Monday, although fall is here I often find myself missing the summer. I found this cute t-shirt this weekend on mega clearance from my local Ann Taylor, even though it makes me miss summer. I though it would be a fun idea to throw in a pop or a color to my look. Old Navy has these amazing pants that are out now called the “pixie” pants, they are amazing, they’re very versatile with everything! The pixie pants are available in plus sizes via thee old navy website! I hope that you have a great work week.

Hi! Happy Monday! This week is gonna be busy! I start my full time school this week! This past week i received an interesting question via a reader. The question was proposed, if i have such a problem with my body type, why do i blog? Am i subjecting myself towards a even more critical world. To answer that question, my blog is the only place i can dress how i want to dress. I don’t really get to wear all the stuff i want during the week. This is my creativity and play space.  With that, i really stepped up the to challenge of adding crazy prints with neon. Its the last of sweet summer (believe me when i shot this it was 90 degrees)! I hope you have a wonderful begging to your week.

Hi there! I decided to pull this sweater out. I bought this sweater last year, at Goodwill. I love anything and quirky. The squirrels are just funny and cute.  I love that its a two separate piece. I also paired it with this super AMAZING bag. As if you read my MSB recap, you know that i am a yard sale queen. Every summer here in Ankeny Iowa there is a major yard sale at Our Lady Of Immaculate Heart Catholic church. I have a co-worker who attends there and told me about it. Last year i had a phenomenal experience two coach bags purchased one for only 2.50! This year i was so super excited! The first day i went, i ended up spending 15.00. I picked up this fabulous bag! The first thing i hit was the purse table. I was sorting through the bags and found this amazing D&B bag. All the purses were only 2.50! I think its only because Ankeny is a rich town. I picked up a ton of other goodies. I ended up going back next day, because everything was half price. I think that the more i church rummage sale the more i can outfit my self. I ended up at the half price sale finding a bunch of cool pins, and a few other small things. I hope you enjoy.

I want to go to Disneyland









I have been feeling so VACATION lately. I keep thinking about school starting up. I picked this shirt up over fourth of July. I  love Disney, and i have never been to Disney land. This shirt was only .29 cents! I paired it with all my fun and favorite jewelry. The purse is totally a collage of Princess Dianna, its pretty awesome! I hope you enjoy!

But I also felt this way when I was still with you









Well it’s clear where the cutting line
Woke up deep for the longest time.
But I can’t offer any help.
You must do this all by yourself.
And no love can be guaranteed.
It don’t come with no warranties.
So wake up, or wake up alone.
If you want me, show some
