Jacket: F21. Chambray: J.Crew. Pants: American Eagle. Shoes/Glasses: Target. Lips: Revlon Fire&Ice.
Ok so I'm really sorry I don't have a Makeover Monday for you this week. Scheduling was just not in my favor.  But as you can see the Blog did get it's own little makeover. What do you think? I love it! It feels so good to have something fresh to look at wouldn't you say?
Anyways my weekend was great, especially with the hubs being back in town. I miss him like crazy when he's gone and am always happy to have him back. We had a date night planned for Friday night to celebrate him being home but as I came out of class Friday Afternoon there was a small blanket of snow/hail on the ground!
Which honestly is not that surprising but I mean come on Rexburg it's almost May! So as you can only imagine that night was quite chilly. Which I thought would be the perfect excuse to bring out my awesome jacket. Would you call this a jacket? Does it have a fancier name, I'm not sure.  You think I would know claiming to be Fancy and all.
Also please note that Bri (my awesome coder) is still worker on a few things, getting all the links together, and sizing right.  So if you try to click on something and it doesn't work right now it should by tonight or tomorrow.

Fancy Friday

Skirt: F21, Shoes/Belt: H&M, Chambray: J. Crew, Glasses: Target. Lips: Fire & Ice Revlon.
I'm hoping this outfit will inspire the weather to glow with sunshiny rays. Yesterday I swear my outfit(not this one different one don't be confused*) was ready to walk out onto a yacht and then the rains came. But I looked that rain straight in the face and I said I'm not changing so your gonna have to. Alas the rain still rained, and I walked to class in my yacht outfit with my head held high. Even if that head was wet. *This picture was taken on Sunday when the hubs was still around to take pictures. Don't worry he just had to take a business trip, but he is back now. It will be back to regular I really did wear this yesterday/today schedule next week.

Dress turned skirt: H&M, Shirt: Target, Shoes: H&M, Necklace: F21. Another shirt turned dress combo for you, can you tell I'm obsessed? Is it getting out of control?
So our car has been causing us all kinds of trouble lately, and  at least twice a week it won't start! We've figured out  a tempory fix so it will start but it involves unscrewing this pipe and detaching it from this other pipe/box thing. Then you have to pour a little gasoline down the pipe at the same time you start the car. Usually the car will then start. Then the worst part of all you have to put all that back together while the car is ON!  So I tell you all this because little ME and a friend had to do all that yesterday by ourselves. David has been out of town (thank goodness he's back today), and I was stuck way on the other side of town with a car that wouldn't start. So in this very outfit I popped open that hood and got to work. Needless to say I felt like I could almost anything. Including playing Dodge ball for two hours which totally happened however I'm extremely sore. So maybe almost anything. A big Thanks to my good friend Alexa for doing my hair, makeup, and taking the pictures.

Styled like a Gentleman

Shirt/Cardigan: J. Crew, Pants: PacSun. Shoes: Allen Edmonds. Watch: ebay.

This guy! Such a model!  I've often though about quitting our day jobs so he can take up modeling. In fact when we started dating people would say "O I heard he was a model" or "Didn't he use to model" Making him o so mysterious like. Turns out it was true, but we won't get too far into that, don't want to make any you jealous now do I? I kid, I kid! 

I love David's style he's very clean and sophisticated with hardly any fuss. He likes looking good and for that I am grateful. Reason 2,560 why he is perfect for me and I for him.

Also I just wanted to point out that he picked this out himself along with everything else he wears on a daily basis. Reason 2, 561 why he is perfect for me and I for him.

Good For The Soul

Skirt/Shirt: Urban Outfitters, Shoes: H&M, Necklace: F21, Watch: Charming Charlies, Bracelets: F21. Lips: Angel. Review here.

I've changed my vegetarian ways as in I ate.... Chicken. Gasp! 

Last Saturday out of the blue I decided we were going to have Chick-fil-a for lunch, and just from it's name you know the vegetarians don't hang out there. However! It was the most amazing, beautiful, tasty chicken I've ever had, and I didn't regret it for one second. 

 So why did I do it? I just decided I've had enough, I wanted some chicken, my soul wanted chicken if you know what I mean. And I thought long and hard as to why I was not feeding my soul. The conclusion was out of obligation and to prove myself.

But I had already done that. 9 months is a good amount of time to prove you have some will power.  I tried it and loved it. I learned a lot about my body and what it needs, and most importantly I've learned how to better take care of my body.
Since then I've been eating chicken and fish on occasion, I'm not sure I want to go back to eating red meat just yet, and I'm totally happy with my decision it feels good and my soul is now happy.

Now only if I had the will power to go 9 months with no sweets.

Makeover Monday

You asked for it my friends and here it is. Makeover Monday round two or MM's which I have just now abbreviated for you, no worries. In case you missed last week you can check it out here and play a little catch up. 

 This weeks model is a dear friend of mine from Paul Mitchell and the Salon, who loves to wear T-SHIRTS! And when I say love I mean L-O-V-E-S it. She has more t-shirts than the t-shirt elf himself.  So I just want to say that I am loving this first outfit because it is SO Alexa, only more beautiful than ever. 

 Skirt: H&M. Belts: F21, Shoes: Target.
 Dress: Target, Top: F21, Shoes: Payless.

Thanks Alexa for being my beautiful model!

Fancy Friday

Pants/Cardigan: F21. Top: Gap. Shoes: H&M. Watch/Bracelets: F21. Lips: MAC Lady Danger. review here.

It's been a rocky road getting back into the groove of student life again. I haven't been giving myself enough time to get homework assignments done, resulting in a crazy display of panic yesterday morning.

 Only to find out that if I didn't finish the assignment on time it was totally ok and that we had until Tuesday to finish, and I also didn't need to make an emergency run to the bookstore because we won't even be reading those books until next month!

I feel like a freshman all over again, I mean I didn't even remember where the Copy Spot was, not to mention they have totally re-modeled a lot of campus. So yesterday I wandered through the library hoping to find the entrance to the sky bridge ( I've had enough of the wind) all the while trying not look like a lost sheep. 

Also how do you break it to a guy you're married when he won't take the time to notice the obvious ring flashing......awkward.

Husbands Choice

Pants: Paige Denim. Sweater/Necklace: F21. Chambray: J.Crew. Shoes/Glasses: Target. Belt: H&M. Lips: Angel. review here.

Well you can assume since I'm posting that I survived my first day. It wasn't easy, let me tell ya, all that walking was insane. I've been really spoiled over at Paul Mitchell. Parking lot building. Building parking lot. They  like to keep us plump at the hair academy. 

I really did enjoy it though, it was nice to have time to think and enjoy the sunshine. My Classes were great and it feels good to be back, even it does mean I have 90% less free time than I use to. 

Also I just wanted to point out that the hubs picked this outfit out himself last night, pretty good wouldn't you say?

Too School For Cool

Cardigan: Old Navy. Pants/Top: F21. Shoes: Urban. Glasses: Target. Earrings: Macy's. Bracelets/Watch: F21/Charming Charlies. Lip: Color me Coral. review here.

My Big Day is here! The day in which I go back to school after almost two years of being gone! Two years! Doesn't that seem like forever, and where did all that time go? Welcome back late night partying with my homework, Taco Bell for dinner (which isn't all that bad depending on who you're talking to), no sleep and really dirty hair.  

I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. What if all the kids don't like me, and what if I really hate being at school again? (things a worrier worries herself about late at night) So wish me luck that all goes well and I that I can actually remember where the Spori is...... Jokes it hasn't been that long.

Also thanks for such a positive response to Makeover Monday, it's definitely here to stay. If you live in the Rexburg area and would like to be a model for Makeover Mondays send me an e-mail, I would love to makeover your closet!

Makeover Monday

Sure it's easy enough to mix and match your own closet, but what about a closet that isn't your own? 

I'm so excited to add a new feature to the blog. Makeover Mondays. Where I go into your closet, take one of your favorite outfits and make it totally new, and of course just a little bit fancier.

My beautiful sister-in-law Margeaux was kind enough to be my guinea pig, this girl has got some great items in her closet just waiting to be re-vamped.

The first set of pictures is Margeaux's original outfit and the second set is my spin on it.

Pants: Gap. Sweater: Old Navy. Blouse:  Kohls. Shoes: Thrifted. Belt: H&M. Necklace: Target.
Outfit Two: Pants: F21. Shirt: Old Navy. Chambray: H&M. Shoes: Sperry. Belt: H&M. Necklace: Target/Thrifted. 
Outfit Three: Skirt: H&M. Shirt: Old Navy. Shoes: Gap. Belt: H&M. Necklace: Target/Thrifted.

So what do you think? Are Makeover Mondays here to stay?

I'm just really into making all my dresses skirts lately, and it's totally working so go me.

Go on a really long bike ride. 

Paint my nails. It's so hard to find time for this. 

Let the husband sleep in, and I might as well join him, right?
