This post should actually be called “crazy past few weeks”! 😛 But I felt that was too long. My family started school in late August (we can do that because we homeschool), just to get a bit of a head-start this year. So adjusting to the new schedule is partly why I haven’t posted in a while (sorry about that). And yeah, one of my sisters recently had a birthday. Things have generally been crazy these past few days.
Anyway, here’s the outfit I wore the other day.
I love this simple look. I have quite a few gray tops so I’m pretty much always wearing a gray tee and denim skirt these days 😀
Yesterday I was out at a mall with my family and I found a great sale on maxi skirts (10$ for one) so I bought a couple and here’s one.
This one is my favorite of the two, the other one is just black and gray. I really wanted to get a colorful one because I have to many gray and black things… so I got this one which still has gray in it but pink stripes is better then say white or black! 🙂
I love this skirt so much! I like having pieces of clothes that can provide a pop of color to my outfit! It can be anything from a skirt, to a necklace. Just something to turn a boring outfit into a less boring outfit. 😀
My “choker” is actually a silver chain I had and I just put it to fit around my neck like a choker. Have you ever done anything like that?
Shirt- Thrift Store
Skirt- I can not for the life of me remember the name of the store.
Well, I can never think of a “cool” way to end my posts so….
Nothing really special happened today except I finally remembered to take pictures of my outfit for a post. 😀
I was looking though my closet wondering what skirt to wear, I saw this one and I remembered how much I liked it so I decided to wear it. 😉 It’s one of those days I don’t have to wear shoes! 😀
Cami- Dollar Store
Skirt- Thrift Store
Necklaces- Gift\Thrift Store
The other thing I wanted to include in this post is a cleaning hack\stain removal I learned this week. My sister got a new (pink) skirt recently and I forgot to wash it separately so pink dye got on not everything but a few things like one of my favorite dressy tops, my brother’s white t-shirts, and my other brother’s church pants. oh and they also went though the dryer which usually sets a stain!
Obviously I wasn’t happy, I mean common that’s one of my favorite tops! I went online and Googled my problem, the first thing I found was something saying I should buy this “wonder” product, I’m a “take action now while I’m thinking about it” kinda girl so I kept looking. There was pretty much only one other thing I tried to and it didn’t work…. So I grabbed a bowl filled it with hot water, added some vinegar and soaked my shirt really well and wrung it out. I did this three times and I could see the dye coming out. I then simply hung it on the clothes line and waited to see if all the dye had come out and it had! I did the same thing for my brothers stuff and it worked as well.
So yeah if that ever happens to you at least try doing that.
Eek! I’m so excited! I mean how awesome is it that it’s the 150th birthday of Canada and I will live to remember it?
Anyway today was amazing, we are at some other friends house right now and they (and us of course) celebrated by having a cookout. Their entire church was invited plus some of their friends, so I was able to make some new friends! Of course it started raining so we had to go inside but it was still fun. They played a game too (it lasted basically the duration of the party), everyone had a clothes-pin and you weren’t supposed to say the word “like”! It was so fun I lost my clothes-pin pretty soon but I had fun trying to trick others into saying it. 😛
Here’s my sister’s post aboutCanada Day, it’s pretty awesome!
Okay so here’s what I wore. I wanted to wear something different but, like an idiot :P, I forgot it! 😦
The pics are kinda bad quality because my six-year-old brother took them ’cause everyone else was to tired!
I’m just popping on to post what I wore on the first day of my vacation. I was able to quickly snap a pick of it so here it is!
This pic was taken around 7:30 but we had to leave the house at 5:30! It was a good first day even if I was in the car most of it. 😛 There was some super great scenery (I wish I had gotten some pictures 😦 ).
