Work of Art

Today was another beautiful day in sunny San Diego!.I finished The Help the other day and was excited to finally read the new Stephanie Meyers novella I had pre-ordered. Note to self: Novellas are way too short. So now I am on to Heart of the Matter which so far is really promising. I love a book that is gets you from the beginning and even better I love picking out a book and being able to instantly download it on my Nook.

After lounging the first part of the day it was off to run errands and pick up some new flip flops and sandals for the boys. Here is what I wore, I am so glad I finally got this shirt (originally tried on here). I decided to pass on this shirt for full price, then again on sale. Finally I cracked and grabbed it off eBay. The detailing is so cool and it is not thin like the tissue tees.

Skirt-J Crew double surge pencil skirt in Papaya
Tee-J Crew Applique Art Tee
Tank-LOFT essential tank in Vintage Pink
shoes-oldies

So that is what I wore and this is what I picked up for me (hey, it is not July yet) on sale for just $19.99. My shoe wardrobe was seriously lacking flat sandals. Now to change into my sweats for movie night complete with icecream sundaes......yummmm.......

I like your idea of a shopping ban in July...the perfect month for one. It's too hot to wear much, anyway. Love the flats.

I've heard a lot about Rocket Dog being comfy shoes.

Love the colors in this outfit - hooray for Ebay! And those shoes are adorable, I tried them on at DSW and they were really comfy, but not $19.99 - what a great deal! I would have caved to that price!

Congrats to you for scoring the top on eBay. It's so pretty IRL and easy to style, isn't it?
