Hey Guys! Welcome back to this weekend’s edition of styled in the heartland. I’m sorry i havent been able to blog in awhile but i dont get to wear my fun clothes until the weekend. So here we go! Let me tell you about my busy weekend! I ran a 5k For Race For the Cure ( heres the photo  (im the left one)

We ran at 8am this morning. and I’ve been pretty tired for the rest of the day, i ended up at a graduation this afternoon and had to throw on some clothes, and i came up with this fun mint outfit, one of my favorite summer dresses that i pulled out.

She Look Good But Only On Camera…

Hey There! Its my 5th posting! I am really loving this playing dress up, and photographing it, i mean who doesn’t love that? It’s fun! Ok so today is sunday, i had a bit of trouble this morning with my car and didn’t make it to where i was going so i decided to blog instead. I have a little bit more modern fun look here, and i definitely bring it to a level of fun.  These colors are usually a step away from my normal bright colors but i love this dress so much , that i decided to push it and where it (even though its like 100 degrees outside) I still wore it. I still struggle with my image, believe me, but i think i did a great job in my opinion I’m gonna rock it and get it down!

It’s A Jolly Holiday, When We Go A Yard’ Sailin

Hello again, Ok here’ we go with post #2. Saturdays are usually my days i don’t work, and since i’ve been really sore i took a break from the gym (if you didn’t know before ive lost 42 pounds in 4 months).  Normally when i yard sale, i pick out the ones i want to go to, here a a few tips!

1. Vintage, – Usually estate sales, are the best for this because they have either died, or moved on, (sometimes depending on the home, if its elderly people its usually vintage)

2. Clothes- going into knowing what size you are exactly helps. Because usually you cant try it on.

3. Bargain- i usually try to haggle with people if i dont feel like the price is right, but i’ve come across amazing sales with stories behind everything i buy. Hence why i love yardsales!

Daria Dvd- (I LOVE DARIA) $.50 cents.

Miscellaneous Jewelry – think 25 cents for these. (the big belt buckle was 1.00 because i recycle jewelry so i was making this into something else)

Unicorn Book- (its a journal) -25 cents.

Indian Coin Purse- 25 cents

(the dvd, the coin purse and the book i got all of it for 1.00 at one yard sale)

Vintage German Suitcase – $.25 cents – I saw it and had to have it, im a SUCKER for vintage suitcases

Mexico Purse- (this purse actually came from mexico the lady purchased it there but never used it) -$5.00
