Hecho en Mexico

Skirt: Bought in Mexico
Shirt: JCPenney, old
Necklace: Kohls, old

When I was on vacation in Hawaii, back in high school, I remember over-hearing how a fellow traveler buys herself some jewelry as her souvenir whenever she goes on vacation.  I thought it was a great idea, but knew I would probably tailor it to my deal-seeking outlook. On our first few vacations, mr. shopfreak and I brought back some tribal art for our home, but we kinda forgot about that tradition after awhile. 

On our last big vacation to Mexico, I brought this skirt back. So it's not entirely something that I wouldn't find here, but I love that it brings me back to that vacation 
whenever I wear it. 

What type of souvenirs do you buy on vacation?

Blue & Yellow = Green

Jacket: Old Navy, $10, old
Shirt: Target, free with coupon
Purse: Nine West via DSW $20, old
Jeans: Target, free with coupon
Rainboots: Charlotte Russe: $10 2011

I'm not  a big colorblocking person, but I guess I have my moments. I probably wouldn't buy anything colorblocked because it limits your options, though. 
Unless it's a neutral, so I guess there is always exceptions to the rule.

I really love the colors, it's so bright and cheery! It's the perfect comfy summer dress, very caftan-like! Thank you nicole by Nicole Miller!

Lucky Lucky!

Sweater: Victoria's Secret, free with rewards card 2011
Leggings: DSW

I was soo excited last year when one of my Victoria's Secret rewards cards turned out to have $100 on it. I love when VS does this promotion when you buy $10 at their store. I usually buy gifts for my daughter's friends and for the teenagers on my Christmas list. It's a win-win for all of us. They get something they'd want and 
I get a little shopping spree of my own. 

This year I was lucky enough again to win another $100 rewards card! So I'm currently strategizing my online purchase to order some clothing. I would much rather use the money on something that everyone can see instead of bras and underwear. 

I can't even believe how lucky I've been recently with this and other giveaways. 
I'm never win anything so I guess my luck is changing!

A JLo Fan

Dress: Jennifer Lopez, Kohls, $17
Sweater-lined leggings: Ross, $5
Boots: Fashion Bug $20

My BFF was crushing on this dress, so I tried it on to see what the fuss was about. She was so right! I love the neckline, the puffy sleeves and the shiny tweed fabric! I'm already  a fan of JLo style and hair, so I guess I'll have to add this dress to list too! 

Since my BFF lives in SD, we end up buying some of the same clothing since we don't have to worry about showing up to an event as twins. I've been her personal shopper for awhile now and I love shopping and spending her money :)

Do you ever buy matching outfits?

Shirt: Target, free with coupon
Jeans: Target, free with coupon
Boots: Ross, $20
Purse: Marshalls, $25

There was an old lady 
who lived in a shoe, 
she almost tipped back, 
could've been black and blue!

Besides dealing with rain, crazy wind and illness, we had a nice mini vacay down to 
So Cal. My daughters and I even recreated a pic that I took with my mom in front of this same windmill when I was in junior high.
