My Caffeine - Old Navy Wedges!

"Don't forget your coffee!"
That's what Princess Sparkles yelled at me from the car today
(she likes to buckle herself in early and wait for the rest of us).
I forgot my coffee yesterday and I had a "grouchy day."
Not sure it was because I forgot my coffee,
but I guess she wasn't taking any chances.

NAVY FLOWY TOP - Ella Moss (thrifted)
PINK CAPRIS - Old Navy
ZEBRA CUFF - Made by my Mom
RED PURSE - B Makowsky (via Amazon)
MULTI-COLORED HEELS - Charlotte Russe

I got the inspiration for this outfit from the Charlotte Russe heels I got for my birthday last year. I figured the colors worked together so I wore them in an outfit. I got the navy blue top during a Goodwill thrift. It was a "sample" from Ella Moss. The pink capris were from last summer when Old Navy had their clearance. I kept seeing bloggers wearing them. I was pregnant at the time but liked them so much I bought them for less than $10!

Speaking of Old Navy, right now they're having a huge sale on all their wedges (cheaper in the store than online). I went a little crazy and bought "some." Don't worry, Camouflage, I'm actually going to return a few of them tomorrow (if you let me go shopping - hee hee).

Old Navy Wedges ($13-$16)

I was recently contacted by Nuvia Cafe about sampling their instant coffee. I thought I'd give it a try. I tend to like to grind my own beans, though I do have some instant on hand for the days I'm in a rush. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised how tasty it was. It has this nice hint of fruit in it (thanks African mango seed and pomegranate) and it is 100% organic. It also has ganoderma in it, which is a mushroom that many Asians use for it's therapeutic benefits. Check out their website for more information and to order!




I didn't quite realize how many shoes I grabbed until I saw them in that picture (and all for less than $100). But that's how a busy mom of 3 shops. You buy what you can when you can, you try it on at home, then you go back to return what you don't like later. And since shopping is my caffeine, I guess it made up for the coffee I missed!!!

Hello Claire!

Thanks for the email, you're so sweet! Yes, unfortunately I'm trying to work with the comment page on my blog. I've been trying to get the "reply" button that blogspot recently made, but the problem is getting bigger and bigger!!

Hopefully I can figure what is going on ^__^, soon!

But giving you back the spotlight: I'm jealous that you have colored pants & that they look great on you! I can't seem to find my size as Forever 21's smallest size is 24, which is actually big on me. How do you find those Charlotte Russe heels? Are they comfy?

I love how you "shop" - I don't have kids but if I did, that is exactly how I'd shop. Run in, buy it and make decisions later.

Love your outfit too. Those are the pink capris I wanted but they didn't come in Tall. Love them with those great shoes and that awesome blouse!

That's quite a collection of wedges! I'll be curious to see which you keep and which ones you return. Curious about this ingredient in the coffee--it's one I've never heard of.
