We are sisters that grew up in different decades with completely different personal styles, but we both enjoy finding a bargain and having fun with fashion. We don’t spend lots of time and money on clothing, but we like to work with what we have, be creative, and share style ideas and tips.

A Fancier Me

If I wasn't a middle class mother of young children who lives in a small farming city, surrounded by slow-paced living and cotton fields, I would probably sometimes dress like this. Even when I'm in commercials I don't dress like this. Sometimes I'll end up in a business blazer and comfortable heels, but most of the time I'm dressed like a Tide commercial mom (a one colored fitted top with jeans, khakis, and flats.) When not in commercials, I most often wear t-shirts or simple peasant tops, jeans, and flip flops. But, if I dined at fancy restaurants, wasn't worried about stains from little hands, and went someplace other than movie theaters and Chipotle on dates, I'd dress like this on occasion. How would you dress if you could?

Lace and Ruffles

A while back I created a post about the cute and versatile ruffled tank. Well, I recently bought an affordable lacy white ruffled tank (only 3.99 at Factory-2-U) and discovered that it works with so many different looks and outfits. It's now pretty much my favorite item of clothing. Here are three looks that I put together. I hope that they give you some fun ideas of your own!

This is the most casual of all three looks. I layered the tank over a simple fitted aqua tee and added a light pink broach and pearls. After all, what goes better with ruffles and lace than pearls?


This next look is what I would wear for a night out. I threw a cropped black jacket over the tank and wore them with skinny jeans and black heels. I also added some black and silver jewelry. 

For this last look, I channeled my inner business woman and layered a cropped gray blazer over the tank and added gray slacks and heels.

Just in case you don't live near a Factory-2-U, here are some cute layered tanks available online ($12.99 from ToAdorn (which has LOTS of cute clothes, by the way.)

White Denim

Big Sis: It's 112 degrees today and so my daydreams are taking me to far off places (like December and January) where someone like me can wear coats, jackets, and jeans to their heart's content. I created this outfit on Polyvore with a white denim jacket, just to remind me of better weather to come. Also, though I can't wear one right now, I'm loving the white denim jacket look. This versatile piece can look casual or dressy, and can bring a cute, crisp look to any outfit.

Glee's Diana Agron wears her jacket with a flowy, knee length dress and summery sandals. I love the dark blue and crisp white together.

The white denim jacket looks cute and casual with khaki shorts and a ruffled top. 

I never would have thought about pairing this jacket with a white shirt, but with the necklace for contrast, it really works! 

Maxi dress + this jacket = the perfect look for a casual night out or lunch with friends.  

These celebrities rock their white denim jackets. Doesn't Jessica Alba look cute in that scarf? ...sigh. I'll just stand under a fan for a little while, clothes my eyes, and pretend it's fall. 

If you live someplace with nice, cool weather, or just want to prepare for fall, this jacket is available at Target for $24.99. You know the fashion advice that says never wear white after Labor Day? Ingnore it! :)
