If this doesn't look like procrastination, then I don't know what does. Can you tell I'm putting off the inevitable? More work.

Three more days until VACATION! Yay!!! Unfortunately, I think my brain left this morning. Hope you enjoy my lovely artwork here. I went a little nuts in Photoshop. The fruits of my procrastination, if you will.

Love, love, love these white pants. This is the 2nd pair of white linen pants I've owned. The first pair were worn until they eventually blew out in the crotchular area. Nice, huh? These replacements were found at JCP last spring and nabbed for only $18. They're fully lined, too. I will never understand why anyone would make a pair of white pants sans lining, but they do. A nicely lined pair that is still drapey is hard to come by. And for that price?!

I learned a good lesson the day that I bought these, and I think it holds true for most stores. I fell in love with these pants, but they didn't have my size in the store and they were marked down temporarily for a doorbuster sale, so I hated to let them slip away. Luckily, I'm not afraid to ask anyone for help (while shopping, anyway) and asked a sales associate if they could find them in another store. Well, she did me one better. Because they had the style in the store, but not in my size, I was able to purchase the pants then and there for the sale price and a pair in my size were shipped free of charge to my front door from It truly pays to ask! Gap used to do the same thing, but I'm not sure if they do anymore.

The top is another JCP find ($18) and one I wear quite frequently. It's the softest lightweight sweater, perfect for the spring transition. I love the dressed-up sweartshirt look. And of course, I'm wearing the gold Keds (, $26). I kind of look like I should be on a yacht. I'd certainly prefer to be on a yacht.

Well, time to face the music. Three. More. Days.


  1. I like your artwork! I'm still trying to figure out Photoshop on my computer. I can't even do a collage.

  2. Love that sweater, and what a great find in those pants! you can make it to vacay :)

  3. Cute outfit! I need to mix gray and white more!

  4. Awesome outfit. This outfit of yours has inspired me to 1)try pants with flats 2) Pair gray and white together.3) get a hang of photoshop.
    Wow! I should do a more detailed study of your outfits, to see what else can I learn.
