I'm back!

Hi girls!
I am so happy to be back to the world of blogging! I had an absolutely DIVINE trip! Arizona was really wonderful. It was quite warm (115!!) but perfect. We sunned everyday and I read three beach reads and tons of magazines! I finished Gossip of the Starlings, read Mating Rituals of a North American WASP and my summer reading book! All were very good. We went to dinner with our old friends and had many delicious meals.

And of coarse we went shopping! I was looking for a few "party" shirts so we headed to Nordstrom and Macy's. Surprisingly Macy's was a hit! I walked away with five adorable shirts all that were on sale for less than $25! I also found a darling pair of black, polka-dot cigarette pants that are really cute and were on sale for only $14! My best buy was a pair of white jean Lilly capris that I found at Ross for only... get this girls, $19!!!!! It was such a spectacular find! It was truly a shopping miracle. There were only two pairs one in a 0 and the other in my size! They fit like a glove, and I love love love them! We also stopped by J.Crew where I got a pair of pumpkin colored cigarette pants, gray bermudas, a new pair of grosgrain critter flip flops, and two really cute tortoiseshell headbands. It was definitely a successful shopping week!

Here are a few pictures from the week...

First day: My step-father and I at the airport.

  5. Glad you had a wonderful trip!! I love the new Lily capris!!

  6. I LOVE all of your outfits, especially the Lilly capris! I have a few tortiseshell headbands from J. Crew, but they always bent and became too large for my head! If this happens to you, there is a solution! I talked to one of the salegirls last time I went, and she said to put a rubberand around the ends and use the heat from a hairdryer to mold it back into place! They are really great headbands, though. No pain whatsoever! I'm so glad you had such a geat trip!
