Tank Top: Maurice’s | Cardigan: Target | Skirt: Forever 21 | Tights: Forever 21 | Shoes: Toms | Necklace: Forever 21 | Belt: From another outfit

Yay!  We made it through another week.  I loved that this week was a short one because it still sure felt like a long one to me!  Starting this week, until Labor Day weekend, we get to wear jeans to work.  We basically had a company weight loss challenge and if our company as a whole lost a certain number of pounds, our reward was “Jeans Summer”.  And lo and behold we achieved the goal and now to get to wear jeans.  (I did help out by losing 3 pounds, woohoo)!  Problem is, I only have like 3 pairs of jeans I really love to wear and that aren’t super tight painted on skinny jeans, HA!  But since it is summer, I’m excited about about being able to wear more skirts and dresses to work.  :)

For this outfit, I was really excited to finally rip off the tags on my blue skirt and wear it for the first time.  Let’s be honest here, I probably bought it MONTHS ago but just never got around to wearing it.  I know, I’m bad, but tell me I’m not the only one who has clothes in their closet with tags on still?  Yes, I see you nodding your head.  ;)  And I’m excited Marvin got a close up shot of my toes, french pedicures are one of my best friends, foreals.  They match any outfit, look sophisticated and last for months!  French manicures on the other hand… they always chip after a few days, bummer.

Well, I just want to close out this week by saying THANK YOU for all your support and sweet comments yesterday about closing up my shop.  I am so happy that so many of you understand.  Based on your comments, I will probably put the shop on an indefinite vacation mode, and who knows, maybe I’ll feel the urge to open up again.  No promises though!  So here’s your last chance, take 20% off your order with code MEMORIAL!  This discount is good through Saturday.  This weekend I’ll be helping one of my best friends celebrate her birthday, so fun!  And next week I begin my summer of travels (for work and weddings)… the first stop being Prescott, AZ!

Don’t forget to enter this super rad Cute Tape giveaway!

Have a wonderful weekend friends!  Got any fun plans?

    aww sandy, this is such a cute outfit. are those tom’s comfy? i was thinking of getting a pair (the regular ones though)… such a good cause. :D

    aww it’s bittersweet that you have to close your shop.. you had such cute stuff! but i understand how things can get hectic and you want to make sure you can focus your time on energy on other things. i still have yet to even open an etsy shop (i know, it’s been like 3 years of me talking about doing it!), because it seems like i would need to dedicate a lot of time and effort into it. i’m such a lazy butt. lol.

    anyhoo, i hope you’re doing great!!

    xx Love & Aloha

    Love those Toms! I am hesitant to buy myself a pair though, since Kim said they gave her horrible blisters while wearing them at work. Were they comfortable for you?

    Happy weekend, friend!

    I adore your TOMS. They are so cute and a great colour.

    At the moment I don’t think I have anything I haven’t worn yet but it is nice to go through the wardrobe and see what I haven’t worn in months. x

    I’m actually pretty good about wearing the clothes I buy…that’s because I shop in a need to basis. For example, I need black pants so I buy them :) And I agree with you on the french pedicure. It last ages and looks oh so classy!

    I’m so bummed that I waited until you were closing up to buy something from your sweet shop! BUT! I just got myself a sweet hair tie! :D

    I need to go shopping in my closet so badly… well, more like shopping under my bed and in boxes. I have so many freaking clothes and I feel like I wear a lot of things that I don’t actually like. Sadly, the things I like most don’t fit! So… I’ll have to go shopping around my room in about 5-10lbs. He!

    I am loving skirts with leggings look. You look so amazing Sandy. : ) I was sorry to read about you closing your shop and am glad it’s just going to on hiatus mode now. Summer is a great time to relax and just take it easy with family & friends, so it’s terrific to hear you’ll be doing that. Have a terrific weekend Sandy!

    Congrats on the company weight loss success!
