That’s right…I’m extra.

Not every day but I was on this particular day.

It started with my face.

I used not one but TWO highlighters!

That was just the beginning…


Check out this super cute dress.

So much cuteness for $7.79.

I’ve had it for awhile. I kept waffling on whether or not it was too short for me.

I decided it wasn’t and wore it out and about with the hubby, along with a recent shoe purchase.

These shoes are comfy and totally on trend.


First stop was Petsmart, to get Miss Oreo a bath. She was NOT happy.

But I was!

Or was I???

As it turns out, I wasn’t.

The material of the dress lends itself to clinging. I had feared that was the case, so I took precautions and sprayed the sh@t out of it with Static Guard.

Yeah, as soon as I got out of the car, the dress was like a second skin on my behind.

I was going to have Mitch take a photo.


Along with the fact the Mitch ended up covered in dog hair, we had to go ALL.THE.WAY.BACK.HOME


…and change. Now, keep in mind, I always, ALWAYS plan my outfit the night before. I literally THREW this outfit together and I have to say, I like it!

I kept to the basics…black and white.

While waiting for Miss Oreo, we hung out at a local casino, where I actually received a compliment on my outfit from a Millennial!

Oh, I almost forgot to talk about my handbag! A gift from my youngest son that we scored while thrifting, the brand is Yoki (sold at Asos, I think) and was $9.99. That’s a tad pricey, but I liked the snake head clasp.

At first, my son thought that we had found THIS bag and he was kind of freaking out…

Yoki did a pretty good knock-off, don’t you think?


It can be worn several ways, including cross body.





By the time we got back home with a clean Miss Oreo…
