Outfit of the Day: AE colored skinnies + Francesca's top

Loving my colored denim skinnies paired with a flowy top ...

Blouse: Francesca's Collections (Small)
Denim: AE Skinny Jeans (Size 2)
Bracelet: J.Crew

I'm especially loving the hi-lo hem ... making this perfect to pair with leggings, as well!

I've gone a bit crazy with the colored denim here lately, so look for a lot more to come your way on that!  :)

Move Over Tory .... Macy's & Great Deals!

I almost never shop at our local Macys - it's not great... plus I am soooo annoyed that every single week they have a "One Day Sale" - I mean, seriously?  Plus they have a PREVIEW day... which makes it a TWO DAY SALE!  ANYWAY - Here is the first set of what I bought and kept.  The second set is coming soon!

I swear if this doesn't look like a Tory Burch tunic ...  anyway, it's a nice, stretchy, and the colors are amazing!  This one is Charter Club (first CC piece I've ever bought) in a Small and came in at about $21 in the store during one of the last - uh - ten One Day Sales!

This BCBG dress is still on Piperlime for full-price, but I snagged it for about $30!  This is a Small - I was considering the XS, but it didn't have the same blousy look.  I think I'll be wearing this a lot this summer.  I have it pair with a stretchy belt from F21.

This navy and white bring print shirt is Charter Club and I LOVE it!  I'm wearing a Small here.  You have to wear a cami underneath as it is sheer!    It will even carry over into fall as I found it looked good with a Schoolboy Wool Blazer.  I also love it tucked into some dressy shorts!  Again - this was under $20!!
**FYI - This is now $12.99 online!!!!  Click {here}

Sorry for the butt shot here... these are the skinny jeans I got in 3 different colors from Forever21.  I cannot believe how well they fit! (yes, they have to be washed after every wearing because they stretch out - to be expected with F21!) 

You might remember back in the fall I fell in love with the skinny cords they offered in a lot of cool colors ... these must be the same cut.  It's always hard to tell with F21 as they have a million things that are almost exactly alike.  I love that this is a true red - I also got the teal and kelly green!  Loves!  $15. No joke.

Another Charter Club tunic in XS.  This one I'm the least thrilled with, but I still really love it with skinny jeans.

I think I'm kind of bummed about our recent weather because I feel like I have a ton of new cute spring clothes to wear, but we skipped straight to summer!  Not kidding, I've worn shorts most days in the last couple of weeks - and tank tops!  It's literally been too hot to wear long sleeves!  WTH?!  I'm excited to wear my new stuff, so cut the crap, Mother Nature!

Old Navy, much?

I do not shop at Old Navy often, but I ordered a couple of things online during a recent promo and thought I would share the best...

This twill jacket is pretty fabulous for the price it's being offered at.  The color and buttons weren't exactly what I was looking for, but it's probably because I really want the J.Crew yellow trench version of this jacket seen here.... 

I am wearing an XS in the ON version and a Size 2 in the JC version.  The ON version is softer and more comfy, the J.Crew version is a better color and more sturdy fabric, FYI.

Tie-Front blouse - very see-thru, but meant to be worn with a cami. XS here ... a little small in the bust, but still OK.

Sail-Boat print blouse - This is awesome and a total keeper! Wearing an XS here.

Burnt Orange dress.... comes with a self-tie belt, which I didn't like the placement of so I moved it lower.  Also has an attached full-length orange cami underneath.  This is a pretty nice dress for ON, IMO.  This is a size XS.

Old Navy has really stepped it up for Spring!  Thanks for stopping by!

Ted Baker Silk Molye "Playsuit" Romper Review

This is something fun I ran across while shopping in a local boutique.  One-pieces typically don't work for me because I am long-waisted (this goes for swimwear, too) but when I saw this beauty I HAD to try it on.  Part of me was hoping it would not fit ... the "you-so-do-not-need-this" and "it's too expensive" part of me .... the another part of me, the "this-is-so-freakin'-cute!" part of me was pretty pumped that it fit like it was made for me...

I'm liking it with black accessories (I'll picture that later down the road) and even without the belt and long necklaces.  The color felt more tealish once I got it home, but in the store it was more royal blue. These pics were just taken quickly so I could make a decision to keep or not.  PA-LEASE excuse the mess that is my life behind me!  lol

Issues:  bathroom .... yes, if you are not flexible enough to zip and button yourself, you will need a helped in the bathroom!  silk ... not kid, drink, life-friendly!

This is the picture for it on ...  I had a hard time finding it online very much, so I'm hoping this can be my go-outfit for looking chic for a lunch with the ladies or night out on the town and I won't see any  outfit twins!  

For reference, I'm wearing a Ted Size 2 - which is either a US size 4 or 6 depending on what website you refer to!

Have you gotten on the one-piece bandwagon?
