Lunch With My Lover

Pictures Taken With My Tripod

When: Friday, January 27, 2012

Where: I was off work, so I met Matt for lunch and then picked our son up from school.  Who knows what the rest of the day will bring?

What:  Dress - Merona; Cardigan - Mossimo; Tights - Kmart; Boots - Simple; Necklace - Belterra Boutique; Bracelet - Gift; Earrings - Gift; Belt - Mossimo

Did anyone else notice the cat in the previous pic?  Maybe it's because I'm home more than ever, but Cleo has been especially needed lately...  Oh well.  Back to the post.  This is a tshirt dress I bought for our trip to Jamaica this past summer.  It's so comfy and I grab for it all the time.  It may be a little short - but I don't feel so self-conscious about it when I have the tights on.  

Matt bought me this sweater for Christmas.  It's the Boyfriend Sweater from my Wish List!  Him and his mom bought me so many things from the list for the holidays - it was awesome!  I'm thinking I'll have to make wish lists more often!!! I have a few more things I haven't posted about that are from the list - so I'll be getting to those soon!

The necklace I purchased from a small fashion boutique in Belterra Casino.  It's one of those places where everything is $10.  I instantly fell in love with this piece and I wear it with many different things.  The earrings were a gift from a co-worker at my old job.  It was one of those things where she bought them for herself, wore them, and decided she didn't like them that much.  Her loss is my gain!!  She did that a couple times, like with this grey sweater.  The bracelet is a gift from my Momma.  If you read my blog regularly, you've definitely seen it before.  Love this piece.  Same with the Simple boots.  Another favorite item of mine.  They're old but they are awesome.  The belt is from a dress that Matt gave me for Christmas (another wish list item).  I haven't worn the dress yet, but I plan on it soon!

How cool is it that I could meet my husband for lunch?!?!  We had Indian food - it's one of our favorite ethnic foods to eat.  YUM!  I was glad I could help him by making him take his lunch and get out of the office (something he doesn't always do).  I was sad when we had to leave and go our separate ways though...  Oh well.  I was able to post this blog to make the time go by, waiting for him to come home!

RN Attire

So as I mentioned before, I came home and took some pictures in my uniform for fun.  Heehee - I know...  Not very fashionable...  But I wanted to do something different for a minute (and show off my cool nursing digs).

When:  Wednesday, January 25, 2012

What:  Scrub top and bottom - Landau; Watch - Casio; Shoes - Nike; Socks - ??

Where:  Work at my new job!

All RNs at my hospital wear navy scrubs.  It's an easy way for patients to identify who is who on the unit as other staff and personal wear different colors depending on their job title.  Since there isn't much else to say about navy blue scrubs I'll go onto the accessories.

My semi-new Casio watch!  I loved the color and I liked how it was made of a soft and comfortable plastic and I don't have to worry about water when washing my hands all day long.  I also liked it cause I could use military time (the standard in medicine).  My shoes are the same tennis shoes I've been wearing since my nursing school clinicals.  They still are in great shape and they treat my feet quite nicely when I'm on them all day. 

Nurses wear uniforms.  It's kind of boring obviously...  So it seems many nurses like to add a little personality with their socks!  I personally own only 4 pairs of white socks while the rest have various patterns and colors.  I was made for the fun sock band wagon and I've been kicking it the entire time!  I love these argyle ones!  And finally, I had to take a picture of my pockets.  I picked out these particular scrubs because they have this little pen/pencil/highlighter holder.  I love it!  No more fishing for my pen at the bottom of my already stuffed pockets!

Well, there you have it!  Scrubs #1.  I have another, completely different pair (still navy blue obviously).  They are actually a little more stylish (which meant they cost more money) so maybe next week I'll take some more scrubs pics?

Can't you tell my cat missed me?  Cleo won't leave me alone when I come home from work until I stop whatever I'm doing and give her my undivided attention for at least 10 minutes....

Still Here

Pictures taken by my tripod

When:  Monday, January 23, 2012

What: Top - Forever 21 +; Sweater - Sonama; Skinny Jeans - Lane Bryant; Scarf - Lane Bryant; Sweater Boots - Sketchers; Bracelet -

Where:  Off work today, so I cleaned up the house, did some grocery shopping, started dinner in the crock pot and of course, homework time with my son.

I'm alive!  I'm here!  I've just been a bad little blogger....  I started my new job a few weeks ago and it's been keeping me busy and engaged most days of the week (even when I'm off work...  SHEESH!)  But yes, I'm still here.  I have made a renewed contract with myself to blog more often.  I really appreciate all the messages and comments you all have left in my absence!  You rock!

Onto the outfit details.  Since it's an off day and I was simply running errands and cleaning around the house, I went for something casual.  Some of you might have noticed...  This is the striped shirt I had on my Christmas Wish List!  My mother-in-law gave it to me!  I really love it!  I don't love that it's supposed to be hand wash only...  Pain!

Do you guys know about Miz Outlet?  They sell costume jewelry at an unbelievable price!  Now, yeah, it's not the best stuff, but for the money, I have enjoyed every piece I have ever bought from them.  (Also - spend $20 and you get free shipping!)  Miz Outlet is where I purchased this bracelet.  I bought the CHI variety.  This scarf I purchased from Lane Bryant a few years back.  It was my first fashion scarf purchase and I still love it.  And because it's January (almost over though!!!) I wore my sweater boots.  They are just too easy to pull on and because of this I wear them often.

Sorry again for being so absent...  I promise do to better.  I started a "to-do" list for my days off, and I have placed blogging on there too!  I really did miss it too - it's just one of those things that got away from me somehow...  (Also - Pinterest has been taking up all my time lately!  I'm officially addicted!  Follow me (Luckeysgoods)!

In other news - I LOVE MY NEW JOB!  Nursing school was not an easy thing to complete, but it was well worth it!

Hope you all have a great week!

Corporate Week

Photots Taken by My Tripod

When:  Wednesday, January 11, 2012

What:  Dress - Sealed With A Kiss; Cardigan - Lane Bryant; Skinny Belt - Lane Bryant; Tights - Kmart; Boots - Trusol; Necklace - Gift from friend; Earrings - ??

Where - Corporate orientation, grocery store, and then home for the usual help with my son's homework, make dinner, and chill on the couch (add some laundry in there too)...

I started my new job this week.  My new nursing job!  But all this week I am at their corporate headquarters, learning how to use their computer system, watching PowerPoint after PowerPoint after PowerPoint of rules, regulations, and procedures...  Next week I get to be on the floor!  But for now I am in a classroom, and I am supposed to be wearing "business casual".  So here was my look for the day!  I actually got a compliment from a total stranger in the cafeteria.  We were walking passed each other and she said "I love your outfit".  That was cool!

This necklace was given to me by a friend a few years ago.  She had taken a vacation to Florida and bought it from a woman who made and sold jewelry on the beach!  A girl can never go wrong with a simple pair of hoop earrings.  And the cuff is a favorite piece of mine that you can see me wear all the time.  Definitely a staple.

I took these pictures really quick in my kitchen.  We had a full schedule tonight but it's been too long since I have posted an OOTD post and I wanted to get one in!

Speaking of kitchen...  I made this great recipe from - meatball and spaghetti soup!  This one was a huge hit with the entire family.  I took pictures of it too - so look for an upcoming post about it!
