Look for Less

When I saw Olivia Palermo in her lace blazer, I fell in love! (Of course, when do I not love her outfits). So when I saw the lace blazer I’m wearing, I knew I had to get it for my store. This blazer is lightweight and perfect for spring and summer. Plus, the color goes with everything. I have so many outfits planned for it.

Only one blazer left! Shop the Daisy Rae Memorial Day Sale and receive 20% OFF your order! Code: DRB20

Dress Turned Skirt

Remember in this post how I told you I don’t like to wear dresses? I wasn’t kidding. I couldn’t even stand to wear a maxi dress! I got this maxi dress a couple years ago and had only worn it a few times. So I decided to cut it up and make it into the maxi skirt I am wearing today. And when I say I made it into a skirt, I really mean I took it to a seamstress and had her do it. I’m just not talented enough to do it myself. I really like it as a skirt! What do you think of the maxi dress turned skirt?

Silly Grandpa

Does anybody watch Dancing With The Stars? I do! It is one of my 84 year old grandpa’s favorite shows. He can only make it about 30 minutes into the show before he falls asleep, so he calls me the next day for a recap. He also has me call in and vote for his favorite. And he gets mad at Lynn Goodman (or “the old judge” as my grandpa calls him) for not giving his favorite dancer good enough scores. I have to remind my grandpa that “the old judge” is younger than him. Grandpa is too funny! He was happy to hear that his favorite, Katherine Jenkins, has made it to the finals 🙂 You can bet he will have me calling in next week to vote for her to be the champion!

Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful mom! She is the most amazing woman in the world and I hope to be just like her. She truly is the greatest mom and I love her so much! Hope everyone enjoys their Mother’s Day!

Allergies

I think I have developed allergies 🙁 I haven’t been feeling well since Thursday. I’m all stuffed up, have a little bit of a sore throat and I can’t quit sneezing. And thinking back on this time last year, I felt this same way. I just though I was sick but now I’m thinking it was allergies. I always hear people complain about their allergies and I used think ‘so you have a runny nose, big deal’. Well, it is a big deal and it totally suck! I think karma gave me allergies for not being sympathetic to those with allergies. So to all those who suffer from allergies, I’m sorry!

And yes, I said allergies six (well, now seven) times in just a few sentences.

Pretty Little Look-a-Like

Does anyone watch Pretty Little Liars? It is one of my favorite shows. I watch it when I work out in the morning. I am so concentrated on the show that before I know it, my elliptical workout is done. Also, I love to see the clothes that the girls wear. And while Lucy Hales character doesn’t have my favorite style (she always looks cute just not my taste), Lucy Hales personal style is great.  I saw this picture of her and it was then that I decided I needed mint jeans so I could copy this outfit. You could wear any colored jeans with this look but I love the mix of the feminine pastel mint jeans with the tough black and studs for some edge. It was a little too warm for me to wear a jacket and booties but I still love the look.

Lodi Street Faire

Yesterday was the Lodi Street Faire and I set up a booth for my boutique, Daisy Rae. The street faire is about 15 blocks of vendors. The event lasts from 8am-4pm and we (the hubby & I) had to get there at 5:30am to set up. It was a great event and lots of people came downtown to shop the vendor booths. It was super windy, though. I had my tent all set up with the sides on and a cute little dressing room but the wind forced me to take that stuff down. But other than the wind, the weather was great and we had a fun time! 🙂
I’m still a little sleepy from yesterday so if some the spelling and grammar is wrong, that is why. Or it could be because I’m not the best speller to begin with… math is more my thing.

Studs = Tough

For some reason, I feel really tough in this outfit. Maybe it’s the studs on the tank but I totally feel like “you don’t want to mess with me because I’m so tough and scary”. I mean, didn’t you think “That girl is DANGEROUS” when you saw these pictures? Don’t lie, I know you did.

I think I’ve been watching too much Nikita. I really wish I could kick some butt like her, all Jason Bourne style. And she does it so fashionably too. She’s in her pretty heels and most would think she is totally harmless. But then she becomes like a secret agent fighting ninja. I plan on being a ninja one day. I also plan on being a super good dancer like the professionals on Dancing With The Stars. I’ll happen…just you wait and see.

Wedding Season

My beautiful cousin, Rachel, is getting married in September and on Saturday we went bridesmaid dress shopping. After I tried on and ordered my dress, we went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and then went shopping at The Fountains. It was such a nice way to spend the day.

I am so excited for wedding season! We have my sister, three cousins, and a family friend are all getting married this year! The wedding festivities begin this month with one of the two bachelorette parties I’ve planned for my sister. Her first party is a trip to Catalina Island with her bridesmaids. We are going to have so much fun!
