how is it going how there in cyber land?  it has been an odd start to our summer here in northern ohio.  during the last week of school i had the air on and was a hot mess outside.  now?  rain, clouds and under 70.  odd.  but i am not complaining…i am not a hot weather fan.

anyway…this summer is going to prove to be very exciting for our family.  we have purchased a property close to the lake for a weekend/summer home with my parents!  not sure about you…but i love seeing a home come togehter…hate the work.  haha.  although since we don’t have to live there maybe this won’t be as bad.  don’t fret…you will see lots of photos and posts with before and after and projects…but for now…let’s dish on what i should wear to a lake party event…

what screams LAKE more than this mint and blue chevron dress?  and how do you pass it up at only $39.99 (remember i like to purchase everything for under $50).

thumbnail.asp

what fun is this dress?  some different colors and different patterns…this would be unique at a lake party.  and again…$39.99

what about a cooler day?  one of my favorite color combinations is orange and navy.  this dress  ($45.95) screams me (except i don’t love to show my arms…but at least my legs are hidden haha!)

i think this would be a cute necklace  ($32.99) with all the dresses.  i tend to keep my accessories small and light when around sand.

you can find all these and more Made in the USA product at MiUS Collection!  and of course, we are linking this post with lindsey at the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday 🙂

linking up again this week with lindsey from the pleated poppy for what i wore (or in my case…what i should wear ) wednesday.

today my oldest turns six!  i would need a novel to talk about the day of her birth…needless to say it was interesting.  she is an amazingly smart and kind little girl.  she makes me laugh every day and i love seeing how responsible she is becoming as she grows up.  she also impresses me with how she takes a life threatening food allergy in stride.  happy birthday baby #1!!

anyway…purple is her favorite color so i am concentrating on some purple items in stock at …all made here in the good old USA!

can you believe st. patrick’s day is already this weekend?  what do you have planned?  our kiddos get to go to their (non-irish) grandparents the night before so the husband and i are heading out for dinner and cocktails…or maybe just a movie and pizza at home…what to do when your kids aren’t home?!

i am not irish.  but my children are.  despite the italian last name….my husband is almost all irish.  so on st. patrick’s day, i, like everyone else all over the world, am irish.  so i guess it’s time to put on some green no?  i am linking up with lindsey from the pleated poppy for what i (should) wear wednesday.

i am back with wiSww.  it’s freezing here again.  while i love winter…and i actually prefer cold over hot…i am ready for the “dirty” part of this season to be over.  specifically the salt on my car and the dirt on my shoes.  ha ha..i am so anal.

anyway…i will say that i know everyone is getting ready for spring…and i know target already has out bathing suits (seriously?!?!)  but i am going to post an outfit today that i would wear TODAY…a day that is chilly with a chance of snow.  yay!  i like snow…i just don’t like what happens when it melts…

anyway…

since i am still freezing…i would start with the basic black cardi ($24.99)

basic black cardi

and since it is march and we are all starting to want to see a little more color, i would pop this tank ($29.99) under it to brighten it up some but still be warm with the cardi…

coral chevron cardi

and i am loving the new boyfriend jeans ($45.99)…so even though they might catch a breeze or two…they look comfy so i would have to toss them on (oooooh…maybe a cute pair of coral or black tights under the jeans for extra warmth?? i might now be showing my own sense of (non) style….

boyfriend jeans

if its really cold…i can toss on my black snood  ($32.99) and i am ready to roll!

black snood

on a side note…though i might wear it with this outfit because i love it so much and wear it all the time…i got this bracelet at the last trunk show!  love to wear it with my rose gold watch or my white watch.

all items (except the bracelet) can be found in our fab finds under $50 boutique and as always…all items are made in the isa!

20 Feb

so i am going off the beaten path here a little bit in my link up with lindsey at the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday.  usually i do what i should wear wednesday.  and i pick us out some fab finds under $50 from MiUS Collection…but today i am doing my post a little differently…

we had our second trunk show this past sunday.  it was at my parents house with a little under 20 people.  it was great for it to be so small.  it was so nice to be able to intereact with people, and because of that i saw some great merchandise!  actually worn on people!  that is the hard thing about internet shopping…you are not quite sure how something will look or fit until you try it on (but remember that MiUS has free returns!).  but man, MiUS has some great dresses that i want to show you today.  you can wear them to a party, to a wedding, to a garden party, graduation, first communion…the list is endless.

here are some of my favs that were tried on by different people (aka body types)

multi zig zag dress $49.99

colorful floral print dress $49.99

surplice dress – curvy $29.99 (this runs small and looked nice on “non” curvy people too)

thumbnail.asp

turtleneck dress $39.99

thumbnail.asp

chevron print black & ivory dress $39.99

thumbnail.asp

geometric print shirt dress $45.99

thumbnail.asp

charcoal print black zig zag dress $84.99

katie dress with belt $199.99

note: while this model is tall and skinny…you do NOT have to have that body type to pull off this dress!  some girls with a little big of curves tried it on and it looked awesome!!!  and was very soft.

thumbnail.asp

amazing zig zag $84.99

note: i am going to say this is definately a dress one should wear leggings under….it is not for the faint at heart or ultra conservatives…it is quite short….

thumbnail.asp

perfect party dress -curvy/plus $54.99

i loved all the dresses at the trunk show.  they looked great on people and they were soft and comfortable and of course all made in the usa…oh…and look…six of them fit my “under $50” criteria!  hmmmm….

happy shopping!  you can find these and other goodies at our site http://www.miuscollection.com

linking up again with lindsey at the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday.   i have seem more haters for the month of february lately…me…it’s not only my birthday month…its a chill month for me so i like it.  but let’s make some spring sounds over here and highlight an outfit i would consider for spring…

i am shopping off the MiUS websites “fab finds under $50” today.  have you checked it out?  it has some great stuff for under fifty bucks!  (hence the name of the page…he he)

for a spring look…i would pair this dress up with a fun colored pair of tights:

Multi Color Crochet Knit Dress  - Multicolor Purple

and a cute pair of flats.

or if i wanted to smooth out those curves some i would wear some leggings:

Seamless leggings - Black

add a cute necklace...and ready to go!

Book Locket Necklace

it’s wednesday and brrrrr it’s cold here!  i like it though.  i may have said it before, but i like the change in seasons.  i think winter is a time to cozy up and take a break.  spring and summer seem so much about “going” and “running”…i like this hibernating time of the year.

so something cozy and comfy is in store.  and warm.  and decent enough to run up to the school in, or have a friend over for coffee and feel like an effort was made.

Recently Updated

now…when i first saw this sweater i kind of thought of my dad…who has worn a black or navy cardigan at work daily for the last i don’t know how many years.  and even when i first saw it i wasn’t sure.  but picture it with a bright colored shirt underneath (maybe pull a color from the scarf and use that as your color guide for the shirt underneath??).  how cozy with some skinny pants!  i think it works.

and this scarf…i can’t tell you how much i wear this scarf.  with an outfit or outside with a jacket or coat.  it is one of my all time favorite pieces!  it is so soft and i have washed it so many times already and it holds up so well.

i am not a big jewerly wearer but i do like to throw on something.  i think a ring here makes it a little more of a put together look.

charcoal cardigan $32.99

skinny corduroy pants $49.99

fatima scarf $29.99

leather braid ring $34.99

again…linking up with lindsey from the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday!  such a fun link up party.

i love this dress.  i am a chevron fan.  ($42.99)

then there is this one…i know it is more for spring (and really i am not a person you would ask fashion questions to) but i love it…for some reason it reminds me a little of a 1950s style dress.  and i am a big fan of the 1950s…. ($49.99)

2013.01.29.partydress

i would likely wear these earrings ($29.99) with either dress

Petal Shaped threader earrings but what will i really wear?  well quite likely this outfit (because i have it in my closet….)
