30 for 30 Remix – Day 30

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

When you leave an orange lipstick in your pocket and proceed to place it in the dryer along with every. piece. of. denim. in the house, you don’t really feel like blogging.

But after removing every. single. stain. from the denim AND the dryer, you do!

So here it is, day 30 of Kendi’s 30 for 30 Remix Challenge.  And the only thing I would do different:  more shorts and shirts – less pants and jackets.

I hope you guys had fun with it.  I sure did!  Thanks for all the fun feedback!

Now, back to 3 Stinky Boys and Me regular scheduled programing.

30 for 30 Remix – Day 29

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Finding a something that’s both fashionable and functional is like the clothing equivalent of striking gold: rare but amazing when it happens. Luckily, there’s a wardrobe staple that not only meets the above criteria, but is also the essence of summery chic: the maxi dress. Whether it’s worn in a casual way for day or dressed up for the evening, these must-have frocks not only come in an array of fits and fabrics, they also can be customized to work for a range of tastes.

Just sayin’…

30 for 30 Remix – Day 26

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

I’m so sad you can’t really see the gorgeous gold and sparkly color on my fingers and toes because it’s totally awesome.  It really is.  But just because my pretty polish doesn’t translate to pictures, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go grab yourself a great big bottle of it.

It’s by OPI for Sephora and it’s called ‘Looks like Rain, Dear’.  The color is a metallic golden color which adds a twinkle of light to your nails with small sparkles of confetti.  Try it!  You’ll like it!

30 for 30 Remix – Day 25

Tucking in your shirt is an advanced style maneuver- one I never thought I’d pull out of my fashion bag of tricks again.  I mean, I ‘tucked’ in high school, but I broke up with the fad the second I stepped into college.   But lately, I’m seeing ‘the tuck’ everywhere, which is why I decided to give it another go during Kendi’s 30 for 30 Remix Challenge

I kind of like it.

David kind of doesn’t.

What do you think?  Tuck or no tuck?  That is the question.

30 for 30 Remix – Day 24

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Often times, when I need a casual yet chic outfit for a lunch date, impromptu party, or girls night out, I pull out my skinny jeans and pair it with a blazer.  I even wore the classic combination when I attended an outdoor musical, 9 to 5, with my mother-in-law.  So, if you don’t have a simple black or navy blazer in your closet, you’ve got to get one.  When you add this wardrobe staple to your fashion diet, your style will never go hungry.  And to switch it up, you can accessorize with belts, handbags, scarves and jewelry.

I love these earrings.  But the best thing about this pretty pair:  the price.  I got them on super duper sale at Target for $3.00!

It’s 97 degrees and 97% humidity here today.  In other words, it’s HOT!  So, in all honesty, did I really wear this jean jacket all day while chasing around a 3 year old and a 4 year old while they were playing in the sprinkler and riding their bikes?

Why, no.

No, I didn’t.

Just sayin’…

It is hot, hot, hot here.  And by hot, I mean I’m absolutely melting in this pair of cropped pants.  Whose idea was it to include 3 pairs of pants, 4 jackets, and 2 cardigan sweaters Kendi’s 30 for 30 Remix Challenge?

Oh yeah, it was mine.

30 for 30 Remix – Day 20

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Instead of posting Day 20 of Kendi’s 30 for 30 Remix Challenge, I really, really, really, would much rather post a picture of David’s back.  I mean, it’s the most terrifying, yet funny, site you’ll ever see.  Ever. 

After going boating this 4th of July weekend, it has turned a nasty shade of fuchsia.  Yup.  Fuchsia.  Not pink.  Not red.  Fuchsia.  He says it’s the worst burn he’s ever had.  And it is.

But what makes this burn much more violent than any other, (because, yes – he gets a serious burn at least once a summer since he refuses to put on sunscreen so he can ‘sit in the sun 5 minutes to get some color’) is the fact that he actually tried to use sunscreen this time.  Keyword:  tried.

I mean, the front of him is fine, and so are his sides, neck and ears, but his back. is. not.  But the best bit about it: the hand prints.  Since David tried to slather his own back with sunscreen there are skin colored hand prints everywhere.  It’s hysterical.  At least, to me it is.  David, on the other hand, is in immense pain and doesn’t think there’s anything funny about it and won’t let me post a picture of  it.

Party pooper, right?

I think the sunburn sucked out his sense of humor.

I mean, white hand prints + sunburned back = funny.  And should be blogged about.  Pain Shmain.

30 for 30 Remix – Day 18

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

I cringed when I bought this checked button down from JCrew.  I mean, I never spend $80 on a shirt.  Never.  You see, it’s not that we can’t afford it, it’s more that I’m a bargain sale shopper.  Or as David would call me – cheap.  However, I prefer to call myself frugal – but tomato, tomato.  (Did you see where I was going with that one?  Nudge.  Nudge.)

But seriously, I’m so glad I bought this pink checkered button down.  I wasn’t quite sure how well it would work in my wardrobe which is why I included it in Kendi’s 30 for 30 Remix Challenge – and so far, it’s gone with everything.  At least, according to me.

And really, that’s all that matters.

Lately, my friend’s 5 year old daughter yells that she has a yeast infection whenever her mom sits her in time out. 

And what, you may be wondering, does that have to do with Kendi’s 30 for 30 remix challenge:  absolutely nothing.

But it’s funny, right?

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

We were under an excessive heat warning today with temperatures hitting 103.  So the question is:  WHY AM I WEARING A SWEATER?

The answer:  fashion over function, my friends.  Fashion over function.

‘Nuff said.

While I love hats, scarves, and a big bunch of bracelets, nothing can accessorize an outfit better than my boys.  My little guys were riding their bikes when David snapped these shots and they stopped everything to pop in the picture.  How could I resist?
