Sunday my mom and my sister came to Lake Charles to visit Larry and I. Since sista had her fall break Monday and Tuesday they were able to stay until today! Now that I live 2.5 hours from them, I cherish and enjoy every moment I have with them. My mom and my sister truly are my best friends.

My Monday morning started off good with my sister waking up early just to fix my hair for me.. how sweet is that? I can not wait till she's in beauty school and she'll be wanting to try out all kinds of new styles on me! Unfortunately I did have to go to work and I couldn't spend the day shopping with them, but they did meet me for lunch. Larry grilled on Sunday night so they brought left over hamburgers and we ate lunch by the lake. It felt great outside, and the lake made for a great background for outfit pictures! After work we went to Old Navy and then we went to eat Mexican (our favorite). I also got home to see that my mom had washed and folded some laundry for me! Now that's what I call a good Monday... even if I did have to work :)

Remember that time I told y'all to try everything on while thrifting? Well that tip applies to shopping in general. See that hideous green Gumby looking thing right there? Well it was actually super cute on the hanger, and I was totally picturing how cute it could be with some tights and booties....yeahhhhh not.

And check out this Margarita! Is that not the tinyest rita you have ever seen? Totally delish, but way too stinkin' small!


  1. Glad you got to spend time with your mom and sister! That's always a fun time! That is the smallest margarita I've ever seen! How cute! :)

  2. I think this is my fav outfit of yours so far. That necklace is incredible!

    Exploring My Style

  6. Oh my gosh, you're so cute! I'm in love with this combination of the chambray shirt + striped skirt + necklace, and in love with the cost. And that picture of you trying on that dress is adorable. So excited to have found your blog!

  8. I've been reading your blog for over a month and when I saw your post today....I knew that bridge! My family lives in L.C.!!! How cool is that! Love your posts and inspirational outfits!

  9. Your shirt is so pretty!! I like the necklace too. I love doing hair for all of my sister--it's fun to try different styles on them, because I like short hair for myself!

  10. I am cracking up because I totally have the Gumby dress!!! By itself, I agree, it's really not the most flattering thing, but it improves 100% with black leggings, gray boots, black cardigan, tan belt and some bling. Really enjoy your blog! : )

  11. Never underestimate a long Gumby-like dress. I bet if you put a belt around that sucker and lifted the bottom up a bit (pulling the dress up through the belt, leaving the access up by your waist, so that the bottom fell to a little above your knees) it would have been a fantastic dress for the spring. I love the color choices of the first outfit. Denim with the black and white skirt totally rocks, cute picks!
