Simons' Follow-up

I purchased almost $700 of clothing online from Simons about a month ago. I was giddy with anticipation.

I got the box and immediately raced to the bedroom to try it all on. . . .

And then I packed it all back up and mailed it back. I didn't score 1 item.

The main item I wanted for the spring was some new colored denim. I actually really like the color of the pink pants I'm wearing above. Like REALLY like it. The problem was the back pockets. They were quite small and I didn't like how my butt looked. That is hilarious to write. Hugh thought I was looney until I showed him my tush in a pair of pants with larger back pockets. He then, much to his own disbelief, agreed with me. As much as I wanted those hot pink pants, I returned them. I also quite like the look of the blouse, but I couldn't move in it. #tight

Last week Deena and the crew at the Blended Blog looked at leggings paired with scarfs. Recently, Deena has got me thinking about my signature look and I feel like it would definitely have a scarf in it. My favorite outfit of the two above is the black with the green cardi (Gap) and grey and yellow scarf (Gap). I had read a blog (wish I could remember where) about wearing all black. I wasn't sure I could make all black springy, but I got a few compliments on it at work. So either whether I made it springy or not, score!

Happy Monday!


  1. SO sad about the Simons :( We need to go on a roadtrip and shop somewhere, me thinks. Also you look amazing in that black outfit, hot momma!

    1. Yes. Road Trip. I need some Deena time. Miss you.

  2. I love the black shoes super cute. And how disappointing on the return. I like to make a positive spin and say but look at all the money you saved! HA!

    1. EXACTLY what I thought about saving money. I then went to the Gap Factor and promptly spent some of it! LOL

  3. Oh, what a disappointment. $700 worth of clothes and you didn't end up with one!!! :( I actually didn't notice the bum thing until you pointed it out. LOL. I love your signature looks on the other hand and love the black on black, which I rarely ever do but you know what, this just might be the week to try it out. Thanks Jordan.

  4. I so wanted not to see the bum thing myself. I LOVED the color of those jeans!

  5. Costco has pink denim! Love the black and green. I have this look but with white pants for spring!

  6. Oh no. Hugh and I are on a spending freeze. I best send him to Costco for the next couple food runs!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
