Real Momma, Real Deal

Who loves a good sale?? I know, me too! Have you ever heard of Shopstyle? It's this revolutionary site that compiles all your favorite stores' merchandise and when you need, let's say, a shirt dress, you can search all the shirt dresses from all the stores to see which you love best. You lose the hassle of hopping site to site; it's all in one place!

The best part though, is that you can push a little button called "Sale Alert" and when the item you love goes on sale, this little app will email you and let you know.

When I saw this beauty from The Limited a few months ago, I loved it but at $69.90 it was TOO expensive.

I clicked "Sale Alert" and forgot about it. A couple of weeks later, it let me know the price had been slashed to $38.00. Nope, still too much. I kept waiting. Just a little after that, the price had been cut to $17.00. Pair that with the 25% off coupon and I bought that little gem for $14.00 (plus tax and shipping).

Here's how I wore it:

A student gave me the flower in my hair as part of teacher appreciation week.
 I was so thirsty; south Texas is in the middle of a drought, so I just took a sip after watering the plants.

Don't you love my necklace? It's made the The Hammering Redhead and I was lucky enough to win it in a giveaway hosted by the always lovely Heather. It's seriously my favorite necklace and I've worn it everyday since I got it. I plan on ordering some gifts from The Hammering Redhead now.

I thought I could pull this off without the capris but I can't. Just couldn't do it. But you, my readers, I love y'all so you get to see the shirt dress sans capris. Too risque? Or am I worried for nothing?

There you have it; my outfit of the week.  Can't wait to see what everyone else is wearing!!

I knew that was you when I saw your silliness with the watering can. ONLY GIN! =) Your happiness is infectious...I can only imagine what you're like in person!
The shirt/dress looks great on you, I'm loving it with and without the leggings!
