Navy, White, and Green and AWESOMENESS

Linking up today with lots of parties including:
Sunday Style at Modern Modest Beauty
Watch What I'm Wearing at Watching Out for The Woestmans!
and Sundae Scoop Link Party at I Heart Naptime.

Welcome to Pinterest Told Me To ladies!

This was an easy one.
The moment I saw this Pinterest combo I knew I could pull it off, so I wore it that very day!
Yep....I found it one morning at around 6:00 a.m., and I was wearing it by 7:00 a.m.
Thank you Pinterest!
Trouser Jeans:  GAP outlet a couple of years ago.
They were like $12!
Navy Striped Shirt:  GAP outlet
Green Cardigan:  LOFT
Necklace:  Lucky Brand

I've been seeing navy, white, and green together all over Pinterest....
and I totally dig it.
Plus, I feel like most people could have these pieces in their closet and could also recreate this look lickity split.

It's the shirt that makes this outfit.
I HIGHLY recommend you purchasing a shirt similar to this one.
I've worn it several times in the last month, and it always really ads a nice punch to an outfit.
I wore it with my melon cords here.
And here is another one of my navy striped shirts that I love (this is my very first post!).
They look great with lots of different colors!

I found this striped shirt at Old Navy...and even though none of them are navy and white, there are lots of great colors and they are only $11.50!  I've had these shirts on, and they are SO soft.  

Okay, now that I've done my outfit recreation, it's time to move on to the AWESOMENESS I referenced in the post title.
This just happens to be one of my favorite stories ever.
And I'm quite certain it might become one of your favorites too.
It has nothing to do with fashion, but I feel that I need to share this story with the world.
You're welcome.
My girlfriends and I are often trading stories about less than stellar "mommy moments" that we all have every now and then.
Well, I had shared a story with a friend (don't even remember what my story was because her story TOTALLY beat mine), and she decided to make me feel 100% better about myself by telling me her story.
She is such a good friend to me that she completely threw herself under the bus.
And I can't even tell you how much I appreciated it.
Not only did it make me feel better that day,
it makes me laugh every single time I think of it, and I think of it often.
Let me start about saying that this friend of mine is an AMAZING friend,
but she is an even more amazing mom.
She is kind, patient, fun, loving, encouraging, and prayerful.
Still, even the most awesome of mommies can break.
And she did.
Oh yes, she did.
I don't remember the background story or anything, but after having one of those days all day long, something made her crack at the end of the day.
When she cracked, she looked her child straight in the eye, and said this.......
"Do you want me to spank your face?"
I think that just may be one of the funniest (and completely hardcore)
mommy moments I have ever heard of.
She of course did NOT spank the child's face, so don't worry about that. :)
{Remember, she's an incredible mom who just momentarily broke!}
Thank you dear friend for sharing your mommy moment with me.
We all have 'em.
And that my friends is one of my most favorite stories ever.
Don't judge my friend.
You can't tell me you haven't had moments where you've wanted to spank your child's face.
Because you have.
You totally have.

p.s.  Remember that you can still shop my trunk show with Stella and Dot HERE!  
Come on peeps, buy something pretty for the ones you love and for yourself. 
You're cute.  
You deserve it.  
Plus, Christmas is just around the corner.
Don't even act like you don't want one of these rings for yourself.
That green Suzanne cocktail ring is only $39!!!!
The fox ring is sold out.  Sorry.  ...but check out this amazing sidewinder ring.
And you guys already know I LOVE and ADORE the stack rings. If you want to see me wearing a couple of them with my engagement ring, click here.
The Jules ring is $49 and is an awesome statement piece.

Go shopping with me!  You'll be so happy you did!


  1. I have thought about that "spank you in the face" comment a million times! I would never do it...but that doesn't mean I don't think about doing it! (And not just to my kids...I think about doing it to total strangers too!)

  2. LOL! Oh mommy meltdowns are the best. Thanks for sharing. I love Shay's comment about spanking stranger's faces. Totally relate!

    Your outfit today is darling. I may try to recreate that one. I have a pair of trouser jeans that I haven't worn in awhile. Thanks for the inspiration!


  3. My 3 year old totally told my husband that I had spanked him in the face. Which I totally did NOT! Maybe he could read my mind that day!

  4. I think I might have a bit of an addiction to buying green pieces so I'm thrilled to see new ways to wear them.

    Spanking the face....lol! So tempting at least 3 times a day!

  5. Funny, I wore navy, green and gray on Friday. I love a good kelly green!

  6. going to the outlets this weekend and would really like to find some $12 trouser jeans! :)

  7. That poor poor poor overwhelmed mommy-- she probably needed a glass of wine or 3
    ; )
    I'm sure "she" feels much better knowing that many other people can relate to her moment of intensity (aka insanity, but not really insanity, cause "she" was totally sane and clear headed when she felt like, and held back from, spanking her dear child's face). There's nothing like the mouth of a child sassing her mother. Not that I know ANYTHING about ANY of that stuff personally. I'm just imagining...you know, trying to relate to this friend of yours who is probably really really smart, and cute, and kind, and patient, and loving, and loyal, and caring, and funny...
    Now to the real stuff that matters, I have a green cardi and trouser jeans. Gotta get me a navy white striped top (the one I have is long and flows, not right). What shoes should I pair?!
    I'm thinking I need a tassel necklace from Stella & Dot...

  8. Great combination! Ill be trying it out this week for sure. That story literally made me laugh out loud, too funny!


  9. Your blog is so cute! And the title is hilarious and uncanningly true :) Love the outfit, and I'm the same way-if I saw it on pinterest it must be ok to do!
