The girls and Lee got back from Lee's parents' house this afternoon. I guess they had fun and Lee said they were good. Grandma H. sent back Easter bags (aka "baskets") with them and so I let them open them when they got home.

And now the candy rationing begins! :-)
With the girls gone I got a lot of Etsy shop sewing done. I also did some shopping for myself yesterday which was nice. I thought since I'm always sharing about the girls' fashion that tonight I'd share a couple of my own fashion picks!
First, here was what I wore shopping---I am obsessed with puffer vests, especially for things like shopping when I don't want to wear or lug a big coat around in the mall, but it's too cold to go without anything. This vest worked perfectly! (And yes, it's still cold here...we got another couple inches of new snow today :-(
|Please note, the giant pile of laundry behind me *is* clean! I just was too lazy to move it from the laundry room ;-)|
First up, the world's most comfortable jeans. For real! I never owned skinny jeans and then this year I wore boots a lot and decided to try them again (in the past skinny jeans have felt really tight and uncomfortable to me). Anyways, I found these "denim flex" skinny jeans at Maurcies awhile back and fell in love! They are by far the most comfortable jeans I've ever owned. And even though they are "flex"/ stretchy they don't stretch out and fall down as the day goes on like similiar styles I've tried. The sizing is a little different---they come in either xs, s, m, l, or xl....so if you happen to fall right inbetween sizes (like my mom did) then they probably won't work for you. But it's worth a shot because if you happen to fit in one of those sizes well then you will never want another pair of jeans again :-) (I'm normally a 29x33 or 10/12 pant and the size L fits me perfectly). So anyways, I bought a 2nd pair this weekend so that I can stop being depressed when my first pair is dirty :-P

Then my 2nd favorite jeans are from Vanity. I usually like about 75% of the jeans I try on at Vanity---I love their sizing is waistxlength because I am sure to get the perfect inseam. Some of the jeans their are too "young" for me, with crazy washes/rips/etc, but they always have a few basic pairs. This weekend I found a new style that I love---super comfy.... the Vanity Sasha Flare jeans
Then at Old Navy they had these dresses on sale for only $15...normally I look awful in this thin/clingy material for dresses, but I tried this dress on and it was surprisingly flattering! I got the black and white stripe version, and it's so comfy it's like pjs. I plan to wear it around the house this summer because it is so comfy and easy to wear (warning though, I tried the same dress in a solid color and it wasn't nearly as flattering/forgiving---you could see all your bumps and lumps much easier than the stripe version lol...so I'm sticking with the stripes :-) Old Navy stripe dress
I also found a ton of dressier dresses that I tried on for fun and loved...but didn't buy because I don't really have an occasion to wear them right now lol. I also found an ADORABLE casual dress---sort of a chambray material, vneck with a brown belt--but the only size I could find was about two sizes too big and I couldn't pull it off. It was so tempting though--I'll have to keep an eye out for something similiar!
Have a great week everyone! :-)
