Coffe Cups, Oceans & Shoes....


Hiya Blogland!! It's been another one of "those" weeks.  I will be glad when October 1st gets here!! I don't drink booze but I'm about ready to start!! I told my supervisor I'm gonna bake the most decadent cupcakes EVER and bring them in on October 1st. We can then eat ourselves into a sugar stupor!

I've been a bit incognito--I was off sick on Monday & Tuesday (nasty Fibro flare-up probably from being STRESSED) so obviously no outfit posts. I planned to make one last night but was just too whupped and irritated to turn on the computer. Today's post will be catching up on all of my challenge and linkys!! My hubby brought me home a little something last night to cheer me up:

First up: My outfit for Shiny T Tuesday: Ocean. I'm not setting a new fashion trends here, it's a tried and true. It's been unbelievably hot and humid this week so I'm dressing cool in oceany blues and greens.  Skirt & T are thrifted. I've had the turquoise jewelry forever and the shoes are Amerimark. i noticed that my tshirt is getting baggy again-I took this in about a month ago.

Next up is my outfit for SpyGirl's 52 Pick-Me-Up Challenge: Coffee Klatch Tea Party.  Most participants are matching their cup. I totally read that wrong and tried to match what was IN my cup. I drink a green smoothie every morning as opposed to coffee/tea. The black in the dress is the inside of the cup. The green is the kale, the blue are blueberries and the white is the almond milk. The cardigan is the celery, cucumber and green apple. The dress was gotten on super clearance at Kohls, the cardigan is thrifted, bangles thifted and the shoes are clearance from Kohls.


Last but not least--this week is Citizen Rosebud's SHOE SHINE!!!  I had been looking for a comfortable pair of black wedge sandals all summer!! These are Croft&Barrow from Kohl's and were on clearance from $70 to well under $20!! They are super comfortable and easy to wear.


Sheila of Ephemera is having MONOCHROMANIA!! and challenged everyone to get together a monochromatic outfit to share. I'll be wearing and sharing mine tomorrow!! Everyone have a fabulous evening and I'll chat with y'all later.

Now THAT is a party trick!

So sorry to hear you've been FM'd out and stressed. Hopefully you're feeling better now.

I love that you dressed in what you eat the morning. LOL I'd be in all brown and oatmeal from my homemade granola.

I can't keep up with all the different linky parties.

I love the blue toenails : )

bisous

Thanks for linking up!

Ahh, I am sorry you have been feeling rough, Tamera, hope that improves. The roses from your darling Lauren are beautiful enough to cheer you up though. Me, I go for the booze - but I can't balance glasses of champagne on my boobs. Well, I've never tried but I suspect that isn't in my skill set...
Gorgeous outfits, always love you in ocean colours, great maxi, and those sandals look fabulous.
Have a lovely weekend, my dear. xxxxxx

I LOVE the gorgeous blue/green combo and we have the same coloured toenails!

Patti said...

Hi beautiful! Missed you and sorry you were feeling poorly. I love your "smoothie" look! Have a lovely Friday, xoxo

Krista Gassib said...

Ah Tamera I do hope oct 1st gets here fast. You can't tell you have been feeling poorly because you look beautiful as ever! You impress me with all these challenges and I love your new wedges! Your hubby us a sweetie for the flowers!
Xxoo

Vix said...

Ouch, you poor thing! what a lovely man you've got, bringing you such beautiful flowers! Roll on 1st October!
Two fab outfits, love that you were inspired by a smoothie! Those wedges were a terrific bargain.
Have a fab weekend! x

Helga! said...

Love you in those greeny bluesy sea shades, my darling!!!

Jane George said...

you look glorious my darling, so sorry you are feeling under the weather...hope you match your smile soon xxxx

Donna said...

You look fab in both outfits! Sorry you've been feeling puny. Suzanne Sugarbaker had a line in Designing Women - "you could serve tea on that woman's butt". Maybe not a direct quote but the picture of the gal serving cocktails on her chest reminded me of the show.

Megan Gann said...

Oooh what lovely flowers! Hope you're feelin' on the up'n'up. You've certainly been rockin' that gorgeous green. I need to hit the green section again next time I'm in the GW.

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I hope you're feeling better now. I think I prefer your version of matching what's in the cup! Brilliant colour combinations, I love greens and blues together. Don't worry, it's not too long til October! ooh and I really like the colours of those roses xxx

Lynn Marsh said...

Hope you feel better. 40 years ago I probably could have balanced the glasses, now a days I could hold a half dozen as long as I had a stronger underwire...lol. I think you are looking better everytime I read your blog. Keep motivating me lady...between you and susan on Fifty not frumpy, I might achieve my weight loss goals....thanks
