How To // 1 Pair of Shorts, 3 Ways

3ways1pairshorts

I picked up these jacquard shorts at Target a few months ago for only $19.99 because my heart couldn’t leave them in the store. Then again, I may or may not be one of those people that go to Target for mouthwash and end up in the clothing section. Either way, these shorts were coming with me. I treat these shorts more like a neutral (then again, leopard print is a neutral for me too, but to each their own…haha), so there are a ton of things that I mix and match with them. These are just a few options.

Have you ever been the gracious recipient of a gift card from a place you have no intention of ever shopping, but now you’re stuck with a card for some hunting store, when you’d rather have a card for something useful (like some red pumps)? Then you MUST check out Raise.com!

I was recently introduced to Raise.com, an online marketplace where you can buy and sell gift cards. How it works is you take the gift card you received to, let’s say, a hardware store and sell it. Then, you turn around and use that cash to buy a gift card to Target, TJ Maxx, Forever21, or another store of your choosing. Easy peasy.

This is a great shopping tool because if you receive a gift card to a place that doesn’t fit you or your needs, you can turn it into something that will.

Outfit // Date Night + Cigarette Pants

One word of advice for you married folks: Never stop dating your spouse. Ever.

I honestly didn’t even realize that Nine West made jeans until I found these cigarette pants. I actually found them on clearance so I couldn’t leave them. It’s actually pretty difficult for me to find jeans that are a good length on me without my having to roll them up. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good rolled up pant, but sometimes I want to be able to wear heels (btw, I seriously could’ve worn these shoes ALL DAY…they were so comfy) and have my jeans stop right at my ankle.

Our sweet friends (with the biggest hearts and the best teeth) gave Jay and I a night out at a very delicious italian restaurant. I don’t eat pasta (that isn’t gluten free) very often, but this place has some seriously yummy food.

I think Jay had the pork loin with a grilled peach (which I ate) and roasted potatoes with rosemary. I had pasta with shrimp and a light lemon sauce. It was glorious. The atmosphere was relaxing as well. Jason was heading out on a work trip so it was the perfect time to get some face time with one another before he left and before I got busier.

Sometimes we have to purposefully uncomplicated our lives and just be together. Have (or make) a meal together. Enjoy a nice glass of wine. Go for a walk and watch the sunset.

Swimsuits for Curvy Women

Swimsuit season is upon us, folks. For some of you, it’s already here. This can be a time where, as a woman, you may feel self-conscious about your body, for what ever reason. Well, girlfriend (yep, I’m playing the girlfriend card), there is no need. There are so many swimsuits out now that complement any shape, size, and style preference.

When choosing a bathing suit, as yourself these questions: (1) Do I have enough support; (2) Do I feel comfortable; (3) Can I go to the beach now. Well, maybe that last question is the longing of my own heart. The beach is my happy place.

Here are a few different kinds to get your gears going.
