Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!

Yeah, I don't know where that title came from but it was in my head when I found out I'd won  Brett's giveaway!! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get the bracelet and wear it with something! It's so cute! See? I thought it was red but she said it's pink. Pink is good, too!!


Yesterday's outfit was brought to you by Goodwill and today's is from PSToo, well the sweater and skirt anyway. Apparently, it's skirt week around here. When have I ever worn skirts 2 days in a row?! This outfit isn't a cheap as yesterday's, but it's still under $100. $67, not counting jewelry.

Sweater: Ralph Lauren, $14, PSToo
Skirt: Willi Smith, $10, PSToo
Shirt: $8, Kohl's
Boots: $30, Target
Tights: $5, Target
I think this sweater will look really good with jeans, too. And at my new job, I get to wear jeans on Fridays!

Thursday is my birthday!! YAY! And Lise and I are taking off for a day of shopping at The Mall of Georgia. She got someone to stay with Ida all day. Shopping with no kids. Is there anything better?
