Finding my way back to mysefl

I have always wanted to live in the fifties and I know that is ridiculous statement. I after all would not be able to do half things I do right now like blogging. However I love hats, I love poodle skirts, and most of all baking. I serious wonder sometimes because my job that I jokingly have said is to be a nineteen fifties housewife without the cooking and cleaning. Throw in poodle skirt and it is hard to tell difference. I am nanny and my job involves supervising four children under the age of three and two other school age children.

My problem is I wear the most boring clothes to work. The fifties house wives had that down, but I am not sure how they did it not having snot and spit up all over their amazing sweater sets! I had fashion crisis about five years I ago and it was not pretty. I am someone who loves to dress up. If I am best dress person in room I feel like I have done my job. With children you cant wear skirts and beautiful things unless intend them to be ruined. I have gotten better since I make enough now to buy things that are quality. I still don’t feel like me. I have been trying to make my way back to myself ,but is hard journey. I really hope I can find happy medium between vintage and successful women , but isn’t that what we are all trying to do get to best version of ourselves in clothes and in life.

five things I love!!

I want shopping with my mom this Friday. I am a crazy shop all day sort of girl. I can shop most people into the floor. I pride myself on finding deals wherever I go. So this edition well be the top five things I loved today. We shopped at Camarillo outlets it is just down the way from me I know it is amazing I have any money left with it so close by.

1. Not real a purchase ,but my new favorite restaurant Panera Bread. They have great fresh and delicious food. They make their own bread and bakery items. I could go one forever , but won't. I had Fuji apple salad and green tea. So delicious. my mom is totally addicted too!

2. So you will not believe this because I can hardly believe it myself. One of my favorite brand is J.Crew because of their quality classic pieces. Honestly ,I have a major problem paying over $100 for clothes. So J. Crew outlet and I have become best friends to my husbands dismay. However ,not even he could argue with my purchased of classic khakis for $11.95 no joke. It was originally $54 and then marked down for $14.97 and additional 40 % off. I know amazing right !!!

3. This not a really a store ,but my new haircut I got on thursday made my day . it is fun , and summery I am loving it!!

4. We also stopped by at New Balance outlet. As old cross country runner I now importance of good shoe and so a good walking shoe was on my list things I need. Of course athletic shoe shopping is not that exciting ,but New Balance not only had cute shoes ( as athletic shoes go) ,but super comfortable. After an additionally 25% off I got my new shoes for $32 my feet are already thanking me and I am happy to oblige .

5. I love to people watch and two best place to people watch are shopping center and amusement parks. I know it is little weird ,but people dress up to go shopping it is always interesting. My favorite people are the ones that dress all the trends together ,but not sure what they are doing. You know the ones feathers in the hair , leggings with t-shirt that is to short wearing flats. it is like a train wreck walking around. I am sorry , if I just describe you. E-mail me well talk about fashion !
Have a good weekend !!
