Rolling with it

Some days, like today, I love me a simple outfit that takes zero effort. On these days I wonder if I should even post an OOTD, there is nothing too exciting here! I thought I'd bring some springy easter colors to my outfit even if our weather is cooling back down. I paired my rolling ruffle tank with a Jackie in breeze. Have I ever mentioned that I have yet to buy a Jackie at full price? I either grab them on final sale or eBay. It's not that they aren't worth full price (they are) it is just a matter of wanting so many different colors of the same style. I justify the multiples by trying to get them at the lowest prices possible.

Tonight is our last adoption class and then Thursday is our home visit and then the rest waiting for paperwork to be filed. I will be glad to have our part done.

Did you see that J Crew is having 30% off Final Sale items (and free shipping on orders over $150)? Also Banana Republic is offering 20% off their sale items too. And......Macy's one day sale (which is always two days) is today and tomorrow, with extended hours Wednesday (good for you, bad for me)!

It doesn't matter how "simple" your outfit is, you always manage to look great! :) I enjoy seeing your OOTDs no matter how "exciting" you think they are!! ;)
I can't believe that you're able to find so many jackie cardis at discounted prices! I've scored a few on sale at jcrew.com or at the b&m but not many-- most were FP purchases. You're right though, they're worth it either way!!
Good luck with the rest of your adoption process. It sounds like there might be an end in sight~~ Yay!! :D

I always wonder if I should post my OOTD's to when I keep things casual but I think more people dress casual and it's always fun to see other people's take on casual attire. I love your outfit and could easily see myself wearing it.

Keep posting your OOTD's Debye, I love seeing them even if you think they aren't exciting! They spark ideas for me and break me out of my normal rotation of outfits.

Question for you - I've been looking for those Bandolino nude pumps that you reposted from Gigi's blog. I can't find them in my size and I know that Macy's sells the brand. Do you know/have you seen them at Macy's? Thanks!

Those pastels look SUPER pretty together - so soft and lovely! I love a great deal on a Jackie too, and Breeze is one of my favorites :)

I love the ruffly top! So cute!

I need all the ideas I can get, and I like the way you dress, so I like to see even your simple outfits! This one is a pretty color combination.

Debye said...

Thanks everyone, you keep me trying!

Michelle Q, yes, the shoes are at Macys.....if you need me to check out a size for you just let me know!

I love seeing your OOTDs, no matter how simple! I find that I do the same thing whenever I feel my outfits are too simple too, but you really do look fabulous all the time. I have yet to own a Jackie... I do want one, though!

Love this outfit...I would never have paired those colors together on my own but now that I've seen you do it I love it! Totally need that cardi in "Breeze"! I finally picked up a navy one and a tealish-color. Keep the ideas coming girl!!! So exciting that your adoption process is coming to it's end--that's awesome!

Michelle Q said...

Thanks for letting me know about the shoes! I'll try to head over to a Macy's near me sometime soon...

Michelle Q said...

Debye - ok, I tried a couple Macy's near me and am striking out. When you get a chance could you check your store in a size 7 and let me know? I'm just up the 5 freeway from you. ;-)

Michelle Q-They didn't have any at my store but I was able to track down one pair of 7's at Westfield UTC (La Jolla). I had the lady pull them and put them on hold through tomorrow under your name. The number there is 858.453.2060 I am sure they can hold them longer if you call!

Debye - thanks SO much for your help! Sorry I didn't get back to you today but work was crazy and then I had to pack the kids for a weekend at my parents' house. I actually found a pair in my size at the Cerritos store, so the kids and shot up the 5 fwy last night before they closed. LOVE them! Thanks again for your help - you're awesome!
