I can't help myself...

Yesterday, Jennifer and I set out to try and locate some 2012 calendars.  We've had basically the same kind of calendar since 2005.  They have varied in size & colors (based on what we could find), but have basically been the same.  No, we don't use electronic calendars.  We're the Flintstones around here, okay? 

Anyway, I just cannot bring myself to use a different type of calendar.  I cannot stand change.  I am the girl that has had the same checking account since 1988, in case you needed more proof of my dislike of change.  All of those problems were solved when I finally discovered that Barnes & Noble is carrying our calendars now (yea!), but not before we just happened to be over by Nordstrom Rack and decided to take a calendar-search detour and "pop" in. 

We both have some great finds.  I'm really starting to love the Nordstrom Rack, and it honestly seems like everything I like is $25 or less.  I think that being able to identify the brands you like, is key to having success there.  Here are some of my finds...


I got this little brown "sweater".  I have 3 in this brand, but they are longer in length & believe it or not, I've somehow managed to never buy a brown one.

I got this little top.  Again, I have several things in this same brand.  It's a little weird...kind of cape-ish, but it has a defined border along the torso, so it doesn't look as odd on as it does on the hanger.

Final article of clothing that I purchased...

A CAPE!

I've been wanting one, but every single one I've tried on made me feel kind of claustrophobic.  This one didn't and the price was right.  I kinda think this is a fad type addition to the wardrobe, so I like not having to invest much money on it.
It's a pretty blue with black outline...
Then, I got some tennis shoes.  I've been on the hunt for over a year.  It's quite a saga, really, but I settled on these Asics and I think they are going to be good.
Yes, having a little dash of pink is always on the must have list!

Y'all have to see one of the items Jennifer bought...
Itty bitty Ugg Mary Janes! 

They are beyond cute, and can you believe they are TOO BIG for Baby Harper!
Since Harper wasn't here, we tried to make Lola model them.

She was uncooperative at best.

Oh, and a couple of weeks ago (funny enough in yet another search for calendars), I got these cute shoes at Marshalls.
I've had a hard time locating brown flats, so I thought these nude color ones would work.
I like the little peep toe too...

Someone wanted their picture taken...
Okay, Lola...

look cute for the camera!

Ohhhhh, the cape!!!! I LOVE the cape! I have been seeing them in all the ads and would love to add one to my wardrobe, but Louisville doesn't have a Rack and I don't want to go spend a lot of money on one. But, that is too cute!

I love the cape, it's so so cute! I'm totally a fan of having a few trendy but inexpensive pieces in your wardrobe - they make you feel fun/hip when you wear them but you didn't spend enough money on them to feel sad when they go out of style and you can't really get away with wearing them anymore. Until then, rock it cape, because it's awesome!
