What I wore....

yesterday! I tried styling my new CV for Target wedges for a UL party I did yesterday afternoon. It was a windy, humid day here in central VA, and this outfit was so comfy that I wish I had more places than just the party to go to!

Two things:
1) this is my FIRST polyvore, so it's somewhat bland and I probably didn't do it right, but oh well.
2) I don't have an IRL photo of the outfit.... Campbell was sick with a fever and Ryan was running on about 1 hour of sleep (as was I) from being up literally all night with her. So no photos.... maybe another time?

Sunday party day

Everything listed in the polyvore is right, except for the pants. I actually wore a pair of Gap 1969 cropped jeans from about 3 years ago... but they look just like the ones in the polyvore.

I liked the outfit, and the tunic is so comfy! I wish that it came in more colors or designs though!

I'm really wanting to style the CV's more, but I'm coming up with a lot of "not appropriate for work" outfits, such as fun (shorter) skirts and shorts.... any ideas?

Shoe love

Look what I got my hands on....

Oh yes.... Cynthia Vincent for Target's highly sought after wedges! :) I actually wasn't even looking for them. I noticed them on the website a few days ago, and during a trip to Target to buy diapers, I happened upon the shoe department. What before my wondering eyes should appear? The only pair of Cynthia Vincent wedges in the entire store in a size 9 (my size!). They looked so teeny that I didn't even think they were sized correctly, but *happy sigh* such is the wonderfulness of a super high wedge-- big feet look little!
At $29.99, these are beyond a steal. They are GORGE in person, and super comfy to boot. I haven't had a moment to style these (as wearing them to Romp N Roll this morning seemed out of the question), but I'm so excited. I can see these putting a little edge when paired with a sweet ruffled summer dress, with shorts to lengthen your legs, and with cropped pants and a tunic style top (going to try this look on Sunday). I also loved them with my jeans when I tried them on.... they gave just a hint of hippy chic!
Note: these are NOT available online. I don't know if there is even any intention of them being sold on Target's website since these designer lines don't tend to stay for long. I also saw online that there is supposed to be a woven looking wedge in stores right now, as well, but didn't see a glimmer of them in stores.
Anyone else score these lovelies?

I'm keeping with my goal of losing weight and getting in shape; therefore I'm trying to watch what I eat. But I am absolutely ADDICTED to the Kettle Brand Potato Chips. Ugh... so delish. The nice thing is that they are all natural, so I feel a *teensy* bit better about consuming mass quantities of them.

My fave flav? The Spicy Thai. Oh. My. God. Sweet and Spicy and Salty all in one. It doesn't help at all that Kroger had Buy 1 get 1 Free on these yesterday. Yes, I do have two bags in my pantry, thankyouverymuch.

Excuse me while I sit in my darkened classroom and enjoy a little bliss.... yes, I did bring a little zip bag of a perfectly measured out single serving portion. :)

I'm alive....

yes yes, I'm alive. Just super busy, and without my life-line (aka my laptop). My laptop went kaput just before spring break- apparently the LCD went out? We are lucky enough to have another functioning computer, but you know... it just isn't MINE, so I just haven't been doing my computer stuff. But, once it makes a glorious return, I plan on posting some wonderful pictures of what we've been up to....
such as:
- gardening!
- gardening! (yes, more.)
- decorating the patio with fabulous furniture!

and who knows.... maybe other fun stuff too! :)
