outfit post: polka-dot portofino tank, blank ankle pants, black pumps

Inspiration - Michelle Williams

I read a lot of blogs and in that mix there are a good number of fashion ones that I read via Instagram. Over the weekend I came across an article about how Barbie has a fashion Instagram and when I checked it out it cracked me up because of how awesome it is. It nails the fashion blogger Instagram perfectly. Makes me sort of wish she was real! :)


So much to do this week! I have to get work sorted out and kid & myself packed up because I am leaving Friday on vacation to meet up with my scientist bestie who is presenting at an evil genius conference in SPAIN! So excited for bestie time!

outfit post: red windowpane blouse, black ankle pants, black bow toed flats

Inspiration - Reese Witherspoon

Wore this outfit last Tuesday to Jr. League dinner meeting after work. Felt spiffy because this outfit had both a new top and fun new bow flats.

The top is from Target that I picked up on impulse. And the shoes are replacement for my other black Tory Burch flats that I have worn so much over the past three years that I wore a hole in the sole. Think the toe bows are a cute update to the gold TB logo on my other pair. Yay new shoes!

outfit post: shopping for snakeskin pumps

Random post today - How I shop for a specific item:
The item that spurred this post is my current hunt for a pair of snakeskin pumps. I have a bunch of cute Pinterest outfits saved that have snakeskin shoes but when I've tried to recreate them with the leopard flats I currently have - they just haven't looked as good.

So I have 'snakeskin pumps' on my mental list of things I'd like to add to my wardrobe. I thought I'd share one of the methods I use when I'm interested in searching for and buying a wishlist items. Read on for the steps below!

(This is not a sponsored post. This is one of the ways I actually shop for things. But because I do all my blog links through ShopStyle I do get a bonus if you download the app using my link.)

 1. Open ShopStyle App on my phone

2. Type in "Snake" into the search bar. (Trying to keep the search general so I will get the most results.)

3. Hit "Refine" to narrow down my results.

4. In the Refine menu - choose "Women" > "Shoes" > "Pumps." (Many times I will also reduce the price, store and color in this menu.) Hit "Apply."

5. Hit "Sort" and then have results returned by "Lowest Price" so I can see the less expensive options first!

6. Scroll through the results clicking the heart on any pair that I think are cute and a reasonable price.

7. Go to the "Favorites" menu (bottom center button) and decide between the pairs I've tagged which ones are my top few favorites.


8. Click into my top few favorites and use the "Sale Alert" button to send me an email when they are discounted. (In this case I can see that they are already on sale - so I can use the Buy Now button if I'm ready to pull the trigger.)

I like using this app because it consolidates a gazillion stores into one searchable location. Sorta like Kayak does for airline tickets. And since there is no way I can keep up with all the off and on sales that stores have every other week - getting the automatic notification when the one specific thing I want is on sale is super helpful.

So now the hard part is my deciding between all the cute pairs of pumps I found!

outfit post: pink tie-neck blouse, navy and pink mosaic full skirt, grey pointed toe heels

Inspiration - Natan

Ordered this skirt from Ann Taylor online without trying it on and I can't believe how much I love it! It is non-wrinkly and pleated (without adding bulk around the hips) and swings very jauntily as you walk. And it has so many pretty colors in the print - navy and teal and pale pink... Makes me want to spin and swish around. Hee hee not very computer nerd office behavior!
