Sparkling Saturday!!

Can I just say, I MISS LISE! I need her home!! Ok. Ahem.

So, we skipped out on the Black Friday madness. As I read around, a lot of folks got some really good deals. YAY for fabulous bargain finding.

Saturday we met up with a friend and headed to the Mall of Georgia for some shopping and to see Harry Potter. We had some good luck. Leah found her Christmas present from my mom and the shoes that she had been wanting for ages. Blake had some money burning a hole in his pocket and bought a game at Gamestop that he had been wanting for ages. And I bought a pair of skinny cargo pants that I've been wanting for ages, and some floral tights. Hopefully, I'll wear both those things this week.

I wore a white long sleeve tee and layered a white sequined tank over it and then wore my silver, sparkly cardi over that. I paired it all with a jeans and black boots. I should have taken a picture without the cardigan on, but I didn't think about it at the time. I was COLD.  The tee and tank were both from Charlotte Russe, which is where I bought the pants and tights. The girl at the counter said, Oooh. I like how you layered our shirts. I think I'll try that.

It made me feel good, cause my daughter had been telling me all day how stupid it was to wear a tank top over a shirt. So, HA!  The jeans are from Kohls, the cardi from Target and the boots are Miley Cyrus from WalMart. Yeah. I like cheap shoes!

Harry Potter was so very awesome. It was dark and and bleak and tense, but soooo good. I can't wait for the last one. And I also can't wait for The Green Lantern & Cowboys and Aliens. There's a lot for a geek out there.

We came home and watched the Dawgs whip up on the Yellow Jackets. GOOOO DAWGS!! Even Jakey got in on it.


  1. Who says daughters have better fashion taste than moms???

  2. Well, she's 12 1/2 and apparently knows EVERYTHING and I know NOTHING!! LOL

  3. love this look. after obsessing with color lately (i only devoted two posts to my color obsession, but in reality have a lot more to show off, hopefully soon)... anyway, after obsessing with color now i'm very much into gray. and expecially gray cardi or gray sweatshirt paired with "rich" leather and jewels. yum!
    LOVE your gray and sequin combo!

  4. IIIIIIII'mmmmm back! (12 hour drives are...well...12 hours long)lol

  5. I love the story about the layering. All that texture makes this outfit very interesting, even though it's quite simple. Very chic!

  6. Ha! Yay for store clerk vindication! I love it and the sequins and the layering! Casual and perfect for a weekend! And, your dog is pretty cute!
