I’ve scoured the internet a bazillion times and searched nearly every store I’ve shopped in since then but came up empty handed time and time again.
I found these beautiful little babies at Off 5th, the Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet located at the Prime Outlets by Millenia Mall in Orlando. I was at the store looking for a black jersey dress for our trip to Europe when I saw them.
I rushed over and scanned the display for my size to no avail. I searched and searched the other racks until I saw them. And then I saw two other women trying on the same pair of pumps. We were all quite the smitten kittens.
When I learned that they were 30 percent off, I was sold. I scooped them up and brought them home along with some other finds from the store and the J.Crew Outlet.
I found a lot of great layering pieces and simple cotton dresses for Europe. I am determined to re-wear a lot of my clothing items in original ways and hope the neutral colors I found will allow me to mix and match.
While at the outlets, I also got my main birthday present from my family sized just in time for our vacation.
I love it! They did a great job with this one!
As I headed home from my shopping trip, I got word from Ryan that he was also on his way back to our apartment from his soccer game.
After he arrived home, we decided smoothies for lunch sounded great because he was hot and sweaty from his game and I have a smoothie addiction.
In the mix (for one smoothie):
- 1 1/4 c. milk
- 1 scoop chocolate banana crunch Muscle Milk protein powder
- 2 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 frozen banana
I’m not even lying when I say this smoothie tasted like a milkshake. It was freakin’ fantastic! The combination of the banana, chocolate and peanut butter flavors created a party in my mouth.
I also had a peanut butter roll up about an hour later that include a whole wheat tortilla smeared with peanut butter and topped frozen banana slices and chia seeds. Apparently the peanut butter and banana combination is rockin’ my socks today!
After lunch, Ryan and I headed to Target to purchase some essentials, including a new wireless router because ours crapped the bed last night and plugging your computer into a cord is a pain in the booty.
Now I’m flyin’ high on my Wi-Fi! Time to get to work preppin’ the blog for some fun posts that will be coming your way while I’m exploring Europe.
The rest of my evening will be spent right here…
P.S. The Fashion page was updated this afternoon!
