Casual Saturday: Denim and Dots

IMG_0485

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Today on the blog, I am going to show y’all a fabulous Casual Saturday outfit that is perfect for lunch dates and running errands…or shopping *wink* What fashionista doesn’t like a little shopping excursion! *wink*

To create this outfit, I started out with a pair of dark wash Chip & Pepper jeans then added a white lace blouse. To top off this Casual Saturday outfit, I tossed on a navy blue polka dotted cardigan and a yellow scarf for a pop of color.  Tah dah! Ready for anything Saturday throws at me–except snow, rain, and that sort of thing. So, don’t listen to The Weather Girls–you know, the singers–and take an umbrella just in case *wink* Now, cue It’s Raining Men because I cannot simply control the urge to dance *wink* It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah! – It’s Raining Men! Amen! It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah! It’s Raining Men! Amennnn!

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Brr… Are y’all staying warm? It is somewhat warm here today; however, it might be bitter cold tomorrow. Who knows with Southern weather *wink* So, what does the VIP do in weather like this? Watch Psych, of course! I am so excited for another episode tomorrow! Whoo hoo!

To change up Outfit 2, trade pink cords for dark denim jeans, swap the red sweater for a chevron cardigan and matching tank, and last but not least, toss off the hat, and slip into a pair of pink kitten heels–tah dah! FAB-U-LOUS.
