In about 2 months, 500 followers! 

  I reached a 500 follower milestone in just over 2 months and I wanted to thank each and every one of you (my first real post was June 28th)!  I’ve tried to follow back all of you but there are a few that I haven’t been able to because of some sort of technical difficulties.  So if you fall within that group, I ask that you please let me know!

I’m also on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter @jerseygirlweb.  If you decide to “like” my Facebook page I’d be happy to like yours as well; just private message me the page. 

As far as this blog is concerned, I’ve been working on perfecting it.  Except for maybe 1 post, I don’t think there have been any that I’ve been 100% happy with.  So stay tuned as it improves. 

If anyone has anything they’d like to comment on, please feel free to do so.

Thanks again.

Take care.

I only have eyelets for you… 

   
  

  

  

  It’s funny how a person’s taste can change when they get older.  I remember my First Communion dress was eyelet and thinking how ugly it was.  As they years passed, I learned to like it. 

Unfortunately you may not be able to see it well, but this strapless dress is eyelet.  It has two layers and buttons down the front.  I wore it with tan pumps. 

The green leaf earrings are marblized while the leaf bracelet has rhinestones.  Both items are from http://www.thepinkbarn.com 

I decided to have the dress photographed with and without the black satin belt it came with.  Which begs the question…. do you prefer it with or without the belt?

White halter with blue shorts

  
  

  

  

  Ok, I know I’ve been wearing a lot of halter tops lately but this heat wave has been terrible!  Here I’m wearing a white halter top with tan lace.  I bought this at the Limited.  Personally, I feel like their merchandise is hit or miss.  Sometimes they carry items that have good quality while some of it isn’t so great.  Their prices are also a little high but you can get some items at a reasonable price if you either buy them on sale or clearance.  While I find this particular top pretty, this is not one of their better quality items. 

The necklace is part of an earrings and necklace set from http://www.thepinkbarn.com.  It has a faux stone with a gold tone finish. I wore it with shorts I bought at NY & Co. and the sandals I purchased at a store at the boardwalk.

I hope everybody is having a great summer.   There are just a few short weeks until the unofficial end of it… Are you ready for Autumn?

Pretty in Pink

  
  

  One of my favorite retailers is NY & Co because I like a lot of their clothes and their sale prices make everything affordable.  Sometimes I get coupons from them taking $25 or $50 off almost anything in the store but when I read the fine print there is little left after the exclusions!  Nevertheless, I still like their merchandise and will continue to buy items from them.  

This dress is another NY & Co. item (I’m wearing a size 6) but I bought it last year and the earrings  ($12.99) are from http://www.thepinkbarn.com  

I hope everybody had a great weekend!

Keeping it classy 

   
  

  With the hot weather we’ve been having I wanted to wear something that kept me cool but was dressier than my previous posts.  I picked up the top at Express for JUST $8.99 (I love a bargain)!  It’s material is thin and I like how the straps cross in the back.  In one of the pictures above you can see that my shorts actually  have polka dots.  They also are made of a thin material and I picked them up last year at NY & Co.  The necklace has both silver and gold tone branches with pretty little rhinestones. The silver tone cuff complements the necklace and also has rhinestones. They were $14.99 and $10.99 respectively and are from http://www.thepinkbarn.com 

I had dinner with an old friend the other night.  It was great catching up.  What have you been up to?

You had me at Merlot

  

  
 There’s nothing like relaxing to a glass of wine and some soft music with all this fantastic weather we’ve been getting.  This floral dress is from NY and Co. and the necklace, earrings, and bracelet are all from http://www.thepinkbarn.com ($14.99, $12.99, and $10.99 respectively). 

How are you spending your weekend?

Mellow Yellow 

  
  

   With the hot weather summer brings, I love wearing outfits that keep me both cool and comfortable.  I picked up this top on sale at NY & Co. as part of their buy one, get three items for free.  (it was originally priced at $32.95 but cost less than $10 with the others!). The front has two layers: one is yellow underneath and the top is chiffon.  The layers allow me to not wear a bra underneath so it’s super comfy!  The bauble necklace and earrings are from http://www.thepinkbarn.com.  

I hope everybody has a great hump day! I plan on seeing fireworks tonight with a friend and maybe go to the boardwalk afterwards.

Lace up halter 

 There’s a park not too far from where I live that specializes in gardens and I love seeing all its gorgeous flowers. I picked up this lace up halter as part of a sale NY & Co. is having right now.  They had racks of BUY ONE GET THREE ITEMS FREE (it included skirts and dresses but I don’t recall seeing any pants but I could be mistaken). This top was originally $36.95 but depending on what you buy, it can average to less than $10 an item!  How’s your summer going? Have you don’t anything exciting? 

Lace Halter and pink shorts

Here you can take a better look at the lace halter.  I wore it with pink shorts but it looks great with any color.  It was on sale at NY and Co. for 40% off. NY and Co. also carries these shorts in a lot of bright colors so there’s a lot to choose from.
