MAKE IT MONDAY....Ankle Bracelets

SO remember a few weeks ago when I told you about the overall trend?!??! WELL....I'm coming to you with another trend....ankle bracelets.

I remember a couple months ago a customer came into the store asking if we had ankle bracelets and I was thinking "yeah, sure...." and then I read it somewhere.....and I've seen it popping up here and there.....I think everything that was cool in the 90's is making a comeback!! I KNEW the type of anklet I wanted....something natural and kinda I gathered my beads and elastic and viola!!

They're SUPER easy to make....I recommend the thinner elastic (it knots easier). Next on my list to make is a peal and skull charm anklet...what kind will YOU make this summer?!?!?

A day in the life....

....Pics via my iphone for the past week....

Went WILD for nail art....

Walked the track with my lil guy and his classmates - 2x this week

GREAT to see kids taking part and getting this day and age all you see are kids noses' in their electronics

Went to my girls' track meets (yes 2 this week...this one sunny and gorgeous, the other cold and windy)

YIKES!! A lil too much first season sun on my worries, now it's a gorgeous tan color and NO, I don't overdue it (that was an hour IF that in the sun) I don't want skin cancer...I stopped doing the tanning beds this past winter and will be UBER mindful of the sun I get outdoors...please please y'all BE CAREFUL

ADORING these sandals....
 Picked these fun "candy coated" (they remind me of Nerds ropes candy) hoops at HobLob for $3.00
(apparently I am channeling my inner hippie this week)

My trusty sidekick...wherever I am. he's no far (UNLESS his "dogma" is home {my daughter}) because of his fur he always reminds me of a fur rug!!

Went to McD's to try and blog in the absence of my internet and WOW their wifi was SO much so that I left...

What have YOU been up to this week?!?!?

STRUCK by Lightening?!??!?!

Y'all I have been FIENDING for my internet / blog fix. It's been TWO weeks!!!

My house got struck by lightening 2 weeks ago....fried the tv, the internet and the satellite....I have 2 of the 3 back thankfully BUT you don't realize how much you take technology for granted (OR how much you can get done when you aren't Online!! I got the curtains hung in my room....

 I cleaned my house Tuesday...should be cleaning the garage today but meh....I'm at my local McD's enjoying a caramel latte and internet(SLOW internet but albeit internet anyway).

(y'all that pic took 10 minutes to load - no joke!!)

Hopefully what "they" say is true...lightening doesn't strike the same place twice....The internet superhero is coming out today SO hopefully I will be able to get back on line and get back to the regularly scheduled programming :)

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

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)
