Showing Off and Trying Fashion

As always, thanks for taking over my blog for me.  What was I doing yesterday?  Trying to be stylish!  I'm not very "hip" but I am very thrifty - one of my biggest coupon loves are those that are save $10 on $10 or more - you get these from JCPenney, Kohls, etc.  So I wander in, find something that costs $11 (socks, etc), and walk out only paying $1 - score. Well this weekend I found at $10 off $10 or more at Aerospstale - I'll have to admit I've never been in that store, but with that kind of coupon how could I not.  I took a coupon for me and one for my mom to use - she couldn't pick anything (so overwhelming!) so I had her buy me something with hers as well - so I got "boyfriend" jeans and a shirt for a total of $8.   Here I am in my jeans (picture from my 5 year old) - yes I'm wearing my glass tile pendant and slippers.  I don't think of myself as old, but as I was surrounded by tweens and loud store music and all these jeans with tons of rips, I began to think maybe I am... 
So enough from me - here's what you showed off yesterday - -
