weekend recap (shopping goods included)

the hubs and I had to drop the Tundra off for 
regular maintenance on Saturday... so instead 
of waiting in the service center for hours 
(yes, hours... it took them FIVE hours to perform 
the scheduled maintenance,  
even though we had an appointment... 
don't even get me started on how pissed I am with them), 
we decided to do a little shopping.

to be honest, I wasn't impressed with the majority of the items in the store. 
luckily, on my way out of the store, I realized I had 
missed an entire rack right in the front, 
which held all of the things I ended up purchasing. 

here's what I got:

Daytrip Babydoll Dress
I thought this was a top until I tried it on and realized how long it was. it could definitely be worn as a dress (but I'd only feel comfortable doing so with leggings because of my height), so I plan on wearing it as a top. it's really flattering and the chiffon overlay makes it more interesting than just a plain grey top. 


Daytrip Drop Waist Dress
I was nervous about this one, because it's a basic rayon and spandex blend, which means that it hugs just a little bit, but it's still got that stretch. surprisingly, probably because of the drop waist, it fit well and was actually pretty flattering to my body type. I love the vibrant color too - it can be dressed up nicely with the right jewelry and shoes! 
and bonus... it has pockets. I love pockets on dresses.


Rusty Peyote Strappy Dress
perfect summer dress. it has a bit of black embroidery at the top, which gives it just a little more detail than the basic black dress. the elastic waist allows for a little give and slack so that it doesn't have to be worn skin tight, which I love. and again, it has pockets, which made it an instant win. 


the last top I got was impossible to find on the Buckle website, but it looks exactly like this:

yep, it's mustard. surprised?


I also made a stop at Victoria's Secret, because I desperately needed new bras that actually fit me properly. I bought one of the Bio Fit bras in a black/nude lace, which is amazingly comfortable. I also purchased two cotton push up bras (which were on sale - 2 for $45) - one is navy blue with white polka dots, and the other is a basic heather grey. VS was having a major pantie sale as well, so I picked up 7 pairs of cotton underwear for $25. 


other than our impromptu shopping trip, we had a pretty low key weekend in the FoFandee household. I did literally a million loads of laundry, went grocery shopping, did a little cleaning and we caught up on some DVR'd shows. did anyone else catch the Shameless finale last night? I'm so hooked on that show - cannot WAIT for next season! I also did a bit of cuddling with the Bear cub yesterday between loads of laundry. 


oh, and I started reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak last week - I can't really get into it. I'm not sure if it's the format of the writing or if I'm just burned out on fast reads. has anyone read this book? most reviews on GoodReads are raves, but I'm just not feeling it. I'm going to give it another good effort before I decide to put it down... after all, I'm only about 50 pages in, so it could definitely just be a slow start. 

Happy Monday, ya'll!


  1. Ok so I love that black dress. I have been looking for a cute dress for my brothers graduation this summer and that is perfect! Thanks for helping me shop! :) Your kitty looks a lot like my grey kitty too!

  2. Great purchases! I am loving the mustard colour right now =) xo


I love getting comments from readers, so thank you for being so awesome!
