Back to School

Last night we had Open House for our little one.  I should stop calling him that since he is now in Middle School and he's not as little as when I first met him.  Mr. Fantastic and I went to meet his teachers, see where his locker and all his classes are, and join the PTA.  He can't wait to start school!
Top: Express (old)
Jeans: J Brand Martini in Shadow (Buy here or here on sale) 
Earrings: Blue Nile; Necklace: BaubleBar
Purse: Rebecca Minkoff Amour
Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors
These J Brand jeans are my second pair from last week's shopping excursion at Nordstrom Rack.  I found these on sale for $31.60, because someone had them altered (they removed all the pockets in front and sewed the seams up) and never picked them up.  They weren't hemmed for someone 5' tall, in fact, I had to have them taken up almost 6 inches. My tailor charged me $9 to hem them for me, so I ended up paying $40 for a brand new pair of perfectly fitting J Brand coated jeans!

Have you ever had a ridiculous find? I'd love to hear about it!


  1. That's amazing, and they look great on you! I have yet to try out coated jeans, but I'll be checking Nordstrom Rack! :)

  2. Cute look,love your bag,nice blog,follow each other?

  3. Thank you! I couldn't believe my luck. I've tried finding them elsewhere and it was definitely a one time deal.


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
