Lately I've been shopping in the kid's section for shoes and clothing.  Don't judge and I am not bragging by any stretch of these floral leggings.  They're from Kohl's kid's section and they were cheaper.  $9.99 on sale to be exact and I got them with my $10.00 kohl's bucks so they were technically free. 

I added this over sized, Orvis, thrifted button down to cover the chubby upper part of my legs that I am hoping to slim down with my workouts.  Humming to myself..."it's gonna take a miracle".  Anyway, I hope you are all well, I had an easy weekend at work and if you follow along on Instagram @SuitcaseVignettes you can see me in a bathing suit (don't hurt yourself trying to get there, it's not that exciting) and  you can see me working the front desk at work while the receptionist was at lunch.  I cover on the weekends for an hour and I love it.  It's just so fun to greet people coming in while answering phones. 
The brown dye that I put on my hair about 3 weeks ago has mostly washed out, I guess I'm supposed to be a redhead again for Fall.  I may put an even deeper red on my head.  Not sure yet!

That's Georgia, my girl, always by my side.  She is so sweet.  Her sister Caroline is always with Rob when he is home.  She's his little doll.  It's funny how they chose which one they would rather spend more time with.

I could not be happier with the weather, it's cool and crisp which makes me feel alive and adventurous.  Summer was brutal and I swear I'm not spending next summer hiding from the sun.  I am going to learn to embrace it somehow.  My husband wants to move to California but I am not quite ready for such a drastic change.  We're going to vacation there first so we're planning a trip to San Diego for 2013.   He used to live there when he was in the Navy and wants to share his old haunts with me. I look forward to going to a place that Rob wants to share with me, I think it's sweet.

I've been known to buy shoes from the kids department. Size 5 = size 7 and they're often cheaper.

Your hair is gorgeous as usual! The kids section is great for leggings, but the shirts fit me all wrong usually. You look cute!

I really like that outfit! it's a lovely idea to wear floral leggings with a denim shirt and I should actually give it a try sometimes.
and Dawn, red hair is so "you"! I think I haven't seen any other blogger who wears red hair that well.
oh and your doggies are adorable but you know that already :P

Good idea shopping in the kids department! I never would have guessed!!! wow. I haven't had too much luck in kids' sections but I should give it another go. If only they would make sophisticated hats for kids. My head needs their sizes!
