fireworks at dawn...

Good afternoon all,

I just finished a phone call and realized that I said "oh, it's a Monday" when asked how my day was going. So I decided to take a break and update the 'ol blog. 

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty fabulous. As I mentioned last week, my grandmother celebrated her 91st birthday on Sunday so I decided to try out some new eye make-up during night of our family birthday dinner. I love the colors and the eyeshadow primer ensured that the color stayed put all night :)

In another "first" for me, something I swore I would never do, I wore leggings as pants! Huge, right? After making triple sure that my tunic top did indeed cover my broad behind I decided to venture out in public with the leggings/pants. I know I'm pretty much the last person to figure this out, but leggings are comfortable! I was quite pleased with many of the photos, so I'm sharing them all with you.

Thanks ThriftyMomma! The tunic is by Alfani from Macy's. You should try your leggings! :)

Hi Iris! I started out with pointy flats and thought the sandals would look better. I'm glad you like it!

Cynthia-Long time no talk! Thanks :)

I bought that same Target dress! (the brown and cream) It's one of my favorites!

K said...

Hi Sarah-I love it too :) It doesn't wrinkle and the length is perfect. I will admit I bought it in the blue pattern as well :)
