Get Those Camo Pants Out of the Fall Clothes!


This week has been a whirlwind of crazy. Summer time at our church means a lot of children and student events.  Vacation Bible Camp is one of our biggest events, hosting over 1000 children!! Wowza! It takes a lot of prayer, planning, resources and man power to make it all happen. Every year the theme changes; from Amazing Space to Power Up, you never know how it will all come together, but of course it does. There's even a paren't breakfast with fruit, biscuits, donuts yogurt and coffee (all the coffee was donated by a company that is going to open up in our city - yay! Tradewinds Coffee Co.)  for those dropping off their children, if they are feeling a little hungry. 

This year I've been assigned to the drama team and I love it.  My character "Chrissy, Player #2" is a scientist with an accent that ranges from Hispanic, to Russian or maybe even Italian. Yeah. I won't quit my day job!  Our fun begins at 8 a.m. and ends around 12:30. That's only 4 and a half hours, but somehow you feel as if you pulled an all nighter when you get done. My age must be showing.

Of course there is more to share, but I'll leave some news for my next posts. Besides my brain has short circuited twice since I started writing this post! So before, it's total mush let's talk about this simple, but fun outfit, and how I managed to find time to run up to Splat to nab that free cupcake.




On a whim, I pulled these camo pants out of my fall clothes storage and I'm so glad I did. I've worn them twice already- once casual and once dressed up a bit.

For the first outfit, I pulled my #bloglife tank out to match my coral colored toe nails and chaco sandals.  It was easy and comfortable!

Outfit Breakdown:
Top: Old Navy (sister screen printed)/Pants: LOFT (Latest Pair at LOFT,  Similar at Target), Chacos (Similar On Sale)/Jewelry (Premier Designs)

Outfit 2




I wore one of my latest linen tanks and added pops of pink with my bag and scarf.  The only newer items in this outfit are the top, the necklace and the bag! Another example of mixing old with new.

Jumping Java goes to this friend for a Happy Belated Birthday!



A pic she sent me from an outing her and her husband were on. I love it when friends text me and say, "We're at Splat! Where are you?"



Ok! That's all for today my friends.

  1. These camos look great with that coral top. I can't believe that you still pick up these cupcakes! For me cupcakes wouldn't have been a win, but a punishment! LOL. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Have a great 4th!

  2. I couldn't agree more about camo in warmer months. I like how you styled yours with the layered coral tank for a casual look. I love them dressed up a bit with the blush!
