An Anniversary Ring and Lipstick

"I can't kiss you, you're a boy!"
Pigtails told her grandpa, Callaway, last night at dinner.
"I'm not a boy, I'm a grandpa," Camouflage's dad laughed.
"No, you're a grandpa and a boy."
"How do you know?" Callaway asked.
"Because you don't have lipstick," Pigtails informed him.
"But you don't have lipstick either."
"I know. But I'm a girl."

Here are a few outfits from the week.  I was feeling like being comfy so I wore a t-shirt and skirt.  I needed a little color so I threw in the red wedges I recently found on clearance at Target.  I'm a huge fan of shorts and booties so I decided to wear my nude combat boots with something bright and girly.  The crochet vest was thrifted for me by my sister, Polka Dots.  I'm linking this second one with "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.

I recently received this gorgeous anniversary ring from Anjolee.  All of their pieces are custom made and can be tailored according to metal type, quality and size.   I personally love the simple, classic design of this one and was able to wear it with everything from skirt and heels to shorts and boots!  They also have diamond engagement rings which you can customize as well, so if you're in the market for one I definitely suggest you check them out!

And the winner of the Shabby Apple contest is...

Pigtails picks the Shabby Apple winner - Denise Angela!

Denise Angela from Silhouette de Femme!  Congratulations.

I've been really into accessories lately.  They're the key to dressing up simple outfits and with the hot weather I've been wearing a lot of those.  It's nice to be able to throw on a cute top, shorts with some fabulous accessories and run out the door.  Oh, and maybe a little lipstick too, just for that girly touch!

That's cute that you let Pigtails pick the winner- such an adorable smile! And your outfit is really awesome in that second photo.

You look so effortless in both outfits! How do you do it with your little ones? I NEVER look like you when mine were little. I, literally, lived in sweats or t-shirts.
You know what will be great is for your kids to read your blog one day and appreciate how you've captured their funny moments and quotes! Won't that be special?!
