Are we bringing sexxy back?!?!? Oh wait, I mean the 90's...are we bringing the 90's back?!??! Last month (or maybe 2 months ago) I saw overalls in inStyle and said NO WAY!!! They are so NOT coming back....Luckily when I was at Goodwill Dolla day I picked these up...

If SJP is doing it, we totally can rawk the overalls...

I ADORE the pic of her in the Full sleeve white top and overalls - GORG!!! 

My overalls are actually shortalls BUT I think I may try to rawk them this about YOU?!?!? Are you on the overall trend?!?!

What I Wore Wednesday lets me link up with all you guys so we can swap ideas and get INSPIRATION....Started by Linds at The Pleated Poppy a way to keep herself accountable for getting outta her yoga pants. Here's what I wore this week....

 What I'm wearing:
Sunnies - Dolla Store
Bomber Style Jacket - Chico's
Necklace - Chico's
Dress - Wal-mart
Arm Swag - Assorted...see Sunday's post
My look for the bomber style jacket evolved from THIS look I saw while flipping thru the latest #instyle. My jacket had enough pattern (the back is a diff pattern in black and white) SO I KNEW I wanted a simple black knee length pencil skirt (SUPA hard to find). While at Walmart for other stuff I ALWAYS check out the clearance and VIOLA!! This black dress was livin there SO I snapped it up and took it home KNOWING full well I'd be wearing it under my jacket (I also styled the dress here

What I'm wearing:
Grey Hoodie - Hanes
New York Graffiti T-Shirt - Maurices
Jean Skirt - Hydraulic via the Thrift
Pink Chucks - Thrifted (see thrifty Tuesdays post for the deets)

MANIC MONDAY....I SWEAR I have a BLACK thumb y'all

OK, it's STILL cold here in the midwest (in fact 15 degrees below average) and I'm getting SPRING FEVER!!! This year I decided to try my hand at starting my seeds indoors....and I HEART the tropics SO what better way to bring the tropics to me than thru plants!?!?! 

Have y'all seen on Pinterest and youtube how "EASY" it is to grow a pineapple plant?!?!? (I tried 2 years ago and FAILED) so after watching the youtube video It seemed EASY!!! (maybe his grew because he lives in Key West
SO I started with my pineapple top like this (rooting it in water)

2 Weeks later it looks like this....pretty dead and dry looking and 1 root.....
 Do y'all have any experience with this kinda thing?!?!? Should I just pop it in dirt and hope for the best?!?!?

Onto the seeds...last year I had GREAT success with cilantro and basil(top planter)....

June 2013

BUT I sowed the seeds directly outdoors in early May....when I start seedlings indoors they always get wimpy and don't withstand the test of time....So this year I got my potting soil, seed started mix (added about 2 tbsp of ground coffee) and mixed my dirt together....sowed the seeds into 1/8" of the soil as the package suggests....

Covered them with saran wrap to emulate a greenhouse...sprayed with a water bottle so as not to drown the soil...moved them from sunlight spot to sunlight spot all over the house (this is when I start feeling a lil crazy)
 LOOK how wimpy they are!!! Maybe some of you are saying woot woot to green - NOT me....I'm getting FRUSTRATED!! (lil pockets of the dirt are starting to grow mold - probably from the moisture)
SO, to all of you green thumb experts out there - WHAT am I doing wrong?!?!? And what can I do to change the outcome of my sad pitiful plants?!??!
