Ombre Lace

Hey y'all! Hope everyone has enjoyed the weekend.  I have enjoyed spending time with my family, going to church, and just RELAXING...lol.  Another week is upon us and I don't know about you, but I'm counting down the days until summer vacation right along with my kiddos.  When they're out for summer break I'm off as well.  Ahhh, the perks of being a school nurse.  I have a jam packed summer planned for us and can't wait to dive in.




I snapped these pics a few weeks ago, so this post has kind of been hanging around waiting to be blogged.  Can any of my blogger friends relate to that?...lol.  I found this awesome blouse from The Clothes Mentor.  It's another thrifty spot that has become one of my go to places when shopping for gently used items.  I like shopping here because it's cleaner, brighter and this particular location smells ahhhmazing every time I visit.


I couldn't believe what a steal this was when I saw it hanging on the rack.  Can you believe it was only $4.00?  I know, shocked me too...  It's a Cato Fashions brand blouse.  The ombre effect along with the lace overlay drew my eyes to it immediately and I, of course, had to have it.  I had to stay true to my femininity of all things girly and frilly and lacy and ruffly....well you get my drift.  It just jumped off the rack into my arms and said "I'm going home with you".  Of course, I didn't argue.  Just swiped my card and skipped out smiling ear to ear.

Ombre Blouse ~ Cato Fashions via The Clothes Mentor $4

Hot Pink Slack ~ Gabe's $8

Nude Pumps ~ Rack Room Shoes (old)


Metallic Clutch ~ Family Dollar $5
Gold Bracelet ~ Avenue
Necklace ~ Charming Charlie's

  5. I love the mix of colours. Orange and pink are one of my favourite colour combinations. I like the lace detailing on the top. Your not only in taking pictures and keeping the, I find it makes blogging consistently so much easier.

    1. Carrie, thanks so much! Bright pants have added some zing to my wardrobe. I was growing bored wearing dark palettes typically associated with winter. Thanks for stopping by :)
