Comfy Walking Shoes?

I am trying to prepare (ahead of time) for my Europe trip in June (which is quickly approaching) by finding some comfortable walking shoes. I used to wear these Jack Purcells all the time in high school, but I can't really remember if they are comfy. Does anyone remember?? Or have any other suggestions?

Lilly Pulitzer on Rue La La!

I know a lot of my followers are big Lilly lovers, so I thought I would let you know that there will be a Lilly sale on Rue La La on Friday, May 1, starting at 8 a.m PST. If you don't belong to Rue La La, leave me your e-mail and I will send you an invite (it's by invite only).

I got promoted!

So I got a promotion at work yesterday!! YAY! I am now a Manager! Time to celebrate! The hubby and I are off to Palm Springs (this was planned pre-promotion), but it will work perfectly!
Now I am trying to decide what I should buy myself as a congratulations present!!

I am thinking of these

Has anyone owned a pair of Chanel flats? Are they comfy?

Mini Sirloin Burgers?

I know this is very random, but I can't seem to get the Jack and the Box Mini Sirloin Burgers commercial out of my head!!! Have you seen this commercial? I think it's sort of catchy :)

My Weekend

Hi ladies! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I spent mine with the hubby of course. We watched some baseball, sat out in the sun at Starbucks, went to the driving range, and hit the outlets! What a perfect weekend! Here are some of the things I scored this weekend:
Ralph Lauren Polo shirt dress. I got it in pink with a green horsey!

Tory Burch Thora flip flops in black:

And this book:

Has anyone read it? I will let you know how it is when I finish!

My altered Gap dress, as promised

I picked up my Gap dress today that I had taken in to shorten the sleeves. I am pretty happy with the result! I will wear it much more now I think! Here it is:

I am definitely happy I did this! The sleeves hit right above my elbows now!
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have some fun weekend plans!

Oh and P.S. I am already on my 76th post! I think a giveaway will be in order once I hit 100!

Shop It To Me Contest

Hi bloggers

I just wanted to let you all know that Shop It To Me is hosting a contest in honor of the finale of Running In High Heels. The winner of the contest wins a free 1-year subscription to Marie Claire magazine! Follow this link to their blog to enter! Be sure to enter soon, as the winner will be announced May 1.

Some Carrie Bradshaw Wisdom

When you want to buy something (a dress, shoes, etc.) but you know you SHOULDN'T, do you ever think, What would Carrie do? And we all know what Carrie would do in this situation :)

It's so much more fun to be irresponsible and just buy, knowing that everything will work out later. Sometimes I catch myself thinking, if Carrie can afford Manolos, I can afford a Diane von Furstenberg dress. I will be honest, I can rationalize just about any purchase. I never really got the chance to be a Carrie-like shopper. I got engaged right after I graduated college, so as soon as I started having an income above $7/hour, it was time to think about a place to live, "house stuff", etc. Don't get me wrong, my hubby has caught on to the fact that I love to shop, but I think he would be upset if I purchased Manolos or a Chanel without discussing it first. He's a guy, he just doesn't see these things as investments like I do :) Sometimes I just wish I could drive to my Chanel and purchase the bag of my dreams, and then deal with the consequences later. Being an adult = having responsibilities, which is so overated sometimes. So for now, my solution is to put aside money every times I withdraw cash and put it in my Chanel fund. I am getting sort of close to owning one :)

Today I received my J.Crew Ruffle Cardigan

Sorry I know these aren't the best pictures, but I tried. I think I like this cardigan. It is more lightweight than I expected, but I think it will be perfect for summer. I ordered an XS and it seems to fit well. I think I am just gettin used to the fact that it doesn't close in the front. But I think it will be perfect to wear over dresses in the summer. Does anyone else have this? Should I keep it or return it? Thanks for your help!

Hair Envy

I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I hate my hair. I have major hair envy. Here are some people's hair I want to steal:

Carrie Underwood. Gorgeous!!

Kim Kardashian. I would kill for her hair!!!

Jessica Simpson

Kate Beckinsale

Whose hair do you want?

My bright idea today

Remember this shirt dress from the Gap (from a few summers ago)?

Well I, like every other female that summer, bought this dress. I love the shirt dress look. However, I did not like the sleeves on these. During the summer, it is too hot for long sleeves. Plus I am just not a fan of long sleeves. Therefore I didn't wear this much :(
WELL today I came up with a brilliant idea. . . cut the sleeves off! I took this to the taylor today to have the sleeves shortened! Why didn't I think of this earlier!! I am cutting the sleeves back so they hit right before the elbow.
I will post pictures as soon as I get it back! I can't wait to wear it with my gladiators this spring and summer!

I have (obviously) been playing on Polyvore tonight. While doing so, I came across this really cute pink plaid shirtdress from Wet Seal. I decided to make an outfit out of it, using the concept of mixing expensize pieces with cheaper ones. Here it is! I think it's perfect for lunch out with the girls!

Lunch with the girls

Pretty in Pink!

Pretty in Pink
I love pink :)

I am so excited for my new J.Crew cardigans to arrive that I thought I would make some summer outfits with them! Here are some outfits with shorts, using things I already own :

J.Crew Ruffle
I recently bought those tanks from American Eagle. Aren't they cute! You might not be able to see it here, but the the straps are braided - very nautical and Spring-like! I tried to put these shoes on my Polyvore, but I couldn't find them! They are Kate Spade's Racquels. So so cute!

J. Crew Order

Okay, I think I am going to go for it and order some things from J.Crew now while they are offering free shipping on orders over $150 (code: FREESHIP). Here is what I am considering:

The cotton-cashmere ruffle cardigan. I've been eyeing this for a while. Has anyone seen this (it's catalogue only). I am wondering if it fits true to size. I might get this in 2 colors.

The corsage scoop neck tee. Again, does anyone know if this runs true to size?

My new obsession

My new designer obsession is Trina Turk! Her designs are so fun and colorful, and her prints are so fun! I LOVE this top:

I also like this Trina dress:

Her price point isn't outrageous either. She is around the same price as Tory Burch and Diane von Furstenberg. Plus her stuff goes on sale at the end of seasons, so you can score some pieces at great prices. I am definitely a big Trina fan. AND she is now coming out with a residential line! Look at these prints:

I want it all!

Happy Easter

I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

My week

Sorry again I was M.I.A. this week. When work gets crazy, I don't have a lot of time to blog. Well it was one of those weeks! At least it makes the week fly by! And now, not only is it the weekend, it's Easter weekend! Happy Easter everyone! Any fun plans? I have a day of shopping planned tomorrow followed by the traditional Easter festivities on Sunday!

For everyone who asked about Rachel Getting Married:
- Anne Hathaway definitely made the movie. I see why she was nominated for best actress. A very different role for her, but in a good way. The movie is a little on the depressing side. It's not uplifting, but it's not bad. It is worth seeing for sure. I am curious to hear what other people thought of it.

Have a great weekend, and I will post the results of my shopping day tomorrow!

This weekend

I know it's only Wednesday, but I am already thinking about this upcoming weekend. What can I say, I really live for my weekends :). Anyways, the hubby is going to be out of town this weekend, which means. . . . I can do whatever I want (no no, not like that :)). By that I mean, watch whatever I want, eat whatever I want, and go wherever I want. Of course I love spending my weekends with the hubby, but every now and then, a weekend to myself is nice. So I am already planning the weekend in my head. Here is what I am thinking:
- Chick flicks. I think I need to head to Blockbuster and catch up on some recent chick flicks. Any suggestions? I can always watch my Old Faithfuls (Pretty Woman, Father of the Bride, Mean Girls, Sweet Home Alabama).
- Sleeping in. Usually on weekends, we have errands to run and therefore try to get up relatively early. The waking up early is his idea, so I am sleeping in on Saturday :)
- Shopping, of course. I am thinking of hitting the outlets. He HATES those!
- Mexican food. I LOVE it. He likes it, but doesn't love it like I do.
- Reading fashion and gossip magazines at Starbucks.
- Plenty of ice cream should be involved :)

What do you do on your weekends to yourself? Do you look forward to them like I do? I must say, my hubby and I rarely spend weekends apart. If we were apart more, I don't think I would be looking forward to them like I am. Make sense?
