Oh so Busy....

I've been very busy lately and haven't had much opportunity to photograph and post photos.

Lia Sophia 'Morocco' necklace; retired
I love the disco ball look!
Tomorrow is another busy day, so I'll make this VERY short and sweet....short on details and content.

I've been outfit lazy since its been so cold; I've wanted to keep it simple and stay warm so I've just been pairing New York and Co stretch trousers in various colors and patterns with a simple sweater.  And, I had to take my picture in the loo!

I have to share this sweet keychain with you

its a little dance shoe, complete with authentic suede-type leather soles!

I had a small, but successful thrift trip the other day and found this top.

The label says 'Field House' but I'm not familiar with the brand.  I had to get this button down with the polka dots.  It has this funny short tie at the neckline; I'm most sure what to do with it, but I'll figure it out.

Hooded NY and C sweater.  

It's super soft and very white with feminine pointelle stitching.

best of all...a gorgeous Ralph Lauren sweater

Look at the beautiful detail at the bottom and the sleeves.  Its 100% cotton and in perfect condition.  FIVE DOLLARS!  I hit the jackpot!

......and for your viewing pleasure, my most recent Lia Sophia piece.  Love at first sight for me!

I will return to my regular chatty blog self soon; I'm just adjusting to this new school schedule and I'm a bit off balance.

Have a wonderful week, lovelies!


  1. The keychain is absolutely adorable! Perfect for you :)

  2. A striped sweater is soooo timeless....& that keychain is cute!!!


  3. Great finds, and you look warm and chic! Tell me about being busy, but today I submitted the last application this time! Good luck with your obligations!

  5. The key chain is adorable and nice find on the Ralph Lauren sweater!!


  6. I love the necklace and the polka dot shirt you found!
    Chic on the Cheap

  7. I just inherited a similar styled necklace but the ball on mine is white with silver dangles hanging from it. I was just looking at it this morning wondering when/where I would wear it.

    I am seeing blouses with neck ties everywhere. Check out Pinterest and see if you can some ideas. I bought a red blouse earlier this winter with a tie...have yet to wear it so I can't help you. ;)

    1. Thank you for the pinterest tip. I do love interest...I think its a go-to. Now I need to find tops like mine!

  8. I love you in stripes. Great accessory pics!

    1. Thank you, Iva....stripes can be flattering on curvy girls!
