Monday blues can’t get me down.

Another Monday has rolled around.  What a weekend I had.  Last night a friend of mine aka my photographer and myself decided to take a little trip to this old fashioned 50′s styled restaurant.  It has been there for many years and each week they showcase a different classic car and I was so excited to see that the one on showcase this week had WHITE WALLS!!! Aka the white strip on the tires.  Sorry, when it comes to cars I’m very enthusiastic.

 Anywhoooo, I’d like to share how I was dressed (of course I loved this part).  Now, just so you know we took some very nice pictures too but haven’t gotten them downloaded yet.  So for now I have to leave you with a picture from behind the lens of my phone.

Today I don’t really have much to write about but I just wanted to ask if each of you (I greatly apologize if you’re not religious, I don’t mean to offend your beliefs) could keep someone in your prayers or just say a little prayer for a dear friend of mine who left for Afghanistan.  I know that someone was looking down on him just because of something I saw on the way to work today; sun rays.  I always believe that sun rays are a little sign of someone peeking through and watching over me and my loved ones.  The pictures don’t do the rays justice.

Since I was feeling a little under the weather, I think I’m getting that end of summer cold that you get right before fall time starts.  Maybe I’m the only one that gets this way, but I bought myself Au Bon Pair and of course had to get my red velvet cupcake hehe.

Also here I am with my fur child.  I figured I needed some kind of a picture today, why not from my precious Lilly bug.

Same outfit two different ways.

I love the weekend.  I really really really do.  Minus that I catch up on all of my cleaning and what not, but other than that I love it.  In today’s post I am going to wear the same outfit but in two different ways.  One is more casual than the other. 

 
The parts of the outfit that are the same are:
 
The white Ralph Lauren tank top found at http://www.stores.ebay.com/EWA-BAZAAR
The crochet pink Unkown brand shorts found at Marshall’s.

For the first outfit the trench coat is Burberry found at http://www.stores.ebay.com/EWA-BAZAAR  It is so lovely and I love the inside of it because it’s the Burberry plaid.  The clutch is Ralph Lauren and also found at http://www.stores.ebay.com/EWA-BAZAAR This can be worn anywhere that accepts casual attire.

The second outfit is very simple.  I added a lot of turqouise jewelry that my Mom made a few years back.  I love anything big and chunky and a statement piece.  These necklaces all together are definitely a statement.  The peep toe flats are Chinese Laundry.  They are so comfortable and I can wear them with a lot of different outfits.

More pretty pictures and my last day of PT!

Well everyone, today was my last day of Physical Therapy!! Oh, I feel so free.  It is an amazing feeling I must say.  I can wear heels just have to be careful.  They said I am free to go however I will have this knee problem until I get knee replacements when I’m older.  My knee cap is deteriorating so I just have to make sure I strengthen the muscles around it.  They said I can run but they would prefer I walk.  I will probably wait it out a little bit and strengthen my body with some yoga.  I love yoga, so that I WILL continue.

It was a little bittersweet walking out of that building because even though I was done I also will miss my therapists, doctors, and all of the other employees.  When you see these people three times a week for a few months you connect with them.  You develop friendships.  Also, my therapist just so happened to be Polish, she spoke it and everything so we used to talk in Polish during my sessions.  Well PT it was real, see you on the flip side haha.

So here is the second outfit that we took pictures of this weekend.  This was taken at the same lake as yesterday’s post.  Only difference is it was on the other side of the lake.  This was by the boardwalk and on the boardwalk.  There is a little story behind this place.  My family and I didn’t always live up here.  When my dad first came to the U.S. he visited this Polish couple up by this lake.  Now my dad was here for a few years before my mom was able to get her Visa.  They would mostly write letters to each other because over seas phone calls back in the 80′s were extremely costly.  My dad took a picture by this rock wall.  Everyone in my family has a picture by this wall.  The following picture was actually taken almost two years ago but I still have it so here is this wall:

ImageHe fell in love with this town and he sent the picture to my mom and said I promise we will live here one day.  Well sure enough some years later we moved up here.  We each have a picture where this wall is.  It is such a beautiful spot and this lake is gorgeous.  Actually right behind where this picture is taken is a restaurant.  People actually come to the restaurant in their boats across the lake, it’s pretty cool.

Anyway here are the beautiful shots of the view that we got that day.

ImageImageSo, now onto the outfit.  The vest (which you can barely see) is H&M.  I got it for 5 buckaroos.  The dress is Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply and you will never guess how much I paid for it; $13.  No, that is not a typo hehe.  The shoes are Nine West. 

ImageImageImageImageImageWhat is everyone doing this weekend?  Anything fun and exciting?

Jack and Jim were a few good men.

For those of you who don’t listen/like country (which is fine I listen to every genre of music anyway) my title of this post is from a lovely song by Jason Aldean, Dirt Road Anthem.  Jack and Jim are the first names of alcohol.  Not only does Mister Aldean have a very deep raspy’ish country voice but he’s not too shabby lookin’ too hehe.  Once I started to become obsessed with making it to Texas (even though I came back I love Texas and always will), I started listening to more and more country music.  Now down south they don’t just listen to country music it’s a mix of music, but the country music they have is awesome.  Each state has their own “flavor” is what I like to call it.

 

Anyway the inspiration for this song was a blog I stumbled upon a few weeks ago.  The blog is called A Fabulous Fete and I suggest you click here and go check it out.  The work that Lauren (who is the blog’s author) does is simply amazing.  She has so many creative ideas.  I have seen many creative diy’s but in my opinion she is the most creative.  I would have to say that her blog all around is lovely.  The colors and the picture quality are just so beautiful.  Ok, well before I ramble about how much I love her blog and blog posts and little creations I want to share a post that she uploaded.

 

Click here to be directed to the post!

 

The title is called Whiskey Party Inspiration.  Now I’m not a big drinker of alcohol, I’ll have an occasional cocktail, beer, or just Jack & Coke.  Now you know why I am in love with this post hehe.  Not that I don’t like other posts but this one is I think my favorite.  Anyway below is my favorite picture of the post which is not mine it is from Lauren’s blog.

Now, need I say more?

 

What I love is that Lauren gives step by step tutorials of her creations.  I think this blog is wonderful and I am so so so so happy that I stumbled upon it!

I walk the line.

Well I will FINALLY be uploading my photo shoot pictures done by an awesome photographer.  She’s one of my coworkers and she’s just awesome.  She actually took a full afternoon/night to take pictures.  The best part is she was soooo into it.  One day I will show everyone what this beautiful mystery woman behind the lens looks like!

 

Where to begin, hmm.  Today was such a stressful day at work.  I can’t even begin to explain how many gray hairs I got from today haha.  Since I’m somewhat tired, I will share my pictures now.  

 ImageImageImageImageImageImage

These pictures were taken by my house.  I live by a lake and my friend and I went to the country club to see if we could take some pretty pictures.  I also wanted to show her the beautiful houses back there since she lives some ways away from me.  We found this random bridge and she said lets go take pictures.  

 

The top is from Texas.  Not sure what brand it is.  I actually can’t remember, I needed a going out outfit and found this shirt.  It’s not the best quality buuutttt it’s 100% cotton which is what I love!  The shorts I bought at Macy’s.  They are Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply.  They look a lot shorter on the hanger than they do on me.  Of course the peep toe flats have made an appearance before, they’re Burberry.

 ImageImageImage

I hope you enjoyed the pictures and I can’t wait to upload the rest of the pictures!!
