What I Wore: Grandma Skirt

Shoes, Necklace & Top: Target, Skirt & Braclets: Thrifted

Excuse the blurry photos.  It was 100 degrees out when these were taken and I was squriming to get back inside to the air conditioning. 

I picked up this skirt during my last thrifting trip.  I think I paid $2 for it!  It has pockets, a cute little detail in the front and hot pink! Im in love!  My girlfriend called it my "grandma" skirt because of the elastic waistband!  I informed her it just allowed a bigger lunch! :) The shoes werent an exact fit it, the outfit would of looked more put together with my nude pumps.  It was just too hot for closed toe shoes!

Stay tuned next week while I have 5 faboulous ladies taking over for me while I'm on vacation!

Have a wonderful week! I'll be back on July 9th!

What I Wore: Coral and Denim

Shoes: Target, Dress: Gap via 330 Swap,  Jacket, Bracelets and Pin: Thrifted, Purse: The Limited, Earrings: c/o Poor Sparrow

This is what I wore on date night over the weekend.  E and I went to a restaurant on the river down the street from his house.  Unfortunately the wait for a table on the water was much longer so we ate inside and then went out on the patio afterwards. 
Do you see the wrinkles too?   Trust me that I did iron this dress but I'm just not that good at ironing. I usually just throw my wrinkled clothes in the dryer with a damp washcloth.  So actually pulling out the iron was a major improvement. 

Ill be back tomorrow with a special giveaway! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

What I Wore: Printed Shorts

Tank & Shoes: Old Navy,  Shorts: TJ Maxx, Sweater: Target, Bracelet: Gift, Necklace: c/o Poor Sparrow,  Sunglasses: Dollar Tree

Lets just say I'm a proud girl in this outfit.  This entire outfit cost me $30!  I found these shorts at TJ Maxx for $5.  They remind me a bit of MC Hammer pants from the early 90's.  They are breezy and very comfortable.  I wear them when E and I go for rides on the motorcycle to stay cool. 

How was your weekend?  Mine was mainly low key and relaxing.  I have 7 days of work left until vacation and I can not wait!!  I have lined up 4 great guest posts from 4 lovely ladies for you guys while I'm gone! 

Have a great Monday!

What I Wore: Denim, Pink and Neutrals.

Jacket & Skirt: Thrifted, Tank: Old Navy, Shoes: Charming Charlies, Necklace: c/o Poor Sparrow, Braclets: Thrifted (gold) and Gift (silver)

I have to say I feel a bit like Baby from Dirty Dancing in this outfit.  Which in 2nd grade all I wanted to be was Baby.  My Mom let me get a perm and I even had a "celebrity" 8th birthday party and dressed up like her. I had little cut off shorts, white keds and a white blouse that I tied at my stomach.  I wish I had a picture! 
I hope you have a great weekend, Ill be back Monday!

June Birchbox and Summer Target Beauty Bag

Birchbox June & Summer Target Beauty Bag from Stacia Momany on Vimeo.

I love Birchbox for many reasons.  Mainly because I would never spend the $ for the full sized products that are provided in the box.  Therefore it provides a special treat just for me that I can enjoy over and over again!  For $10 a month it seems like a no-brainer!  
If you are interested in getting on the wait list for Birchbox click below:

The Target Summer beauty bag was a delight!  Thanks to Lyndsey from a lovely little blog for sharing this great free bag on her facebook page!  I am now using the the make up that the samples came in to keep all of my samples from Birchbox in.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and enjoying the bright sun and warm weather!  I have been watching Downton Abbey Season 1 that I picked up at redbox for $5!!  Im so deligthed with all of the interior decoration and clothing!  How have I missed this?!

What I Wore: Maxi skirt

Vest: TjMaxx, Shirt & Shoes: Old Navy, Skirt: F21, Necklace: Poor Sparrow, Bracelets: Thrifted

This is what I wore for Fathers Day.  This was my Dads 30th Fathers Day.  He was grilling chicken on his new electric grill when I showed up and we had a nice dinner with family.  I picked him up a gift card to one of his favorite stores and he seemed pretty please.  I'm so thankful to have a young and handsome father.  He is always funny and trying to crack jokes.  I probably could do an entire post on "stuff my dad says".  You might pee your pants.

1st Annual Ohio Michigan Blogger Meet Up

It was a success and I am so thankful.  In my mind I hoped for at the very least for a small event with a few sponsors and hoping for 8 attendees.  We had 18 sponsors, 13 attendees and 1 special speaker.  I was beyond estatic.  NBC 24 showed up and I gave an interview and was so pleased that we had TV coverage.  The Toledo City Paper showed up to interview Bloggers for a upcoming special article.  It seemed that I didn't have enough time to talk to everyone and the few hours just flew by! 

Thank you to all of the lovely ladies for attending the Meet Up and a special thanks to all of the sponsors for providing great swag bags and giveaways! 

The event wouldnt be the same without Kathy from Photography by K and Jill from Lake Erie Shores & Islands.  And of course LaScola for such a lovely venue and yummy food. 

Next year there are some ideas being tossed around.  A possible over night meet up on Put in Bay.  Im looking forward to the possiblities!

Make sure to check out all of the lovely ladies below who attended the Meet Up.  And check our sponsor page.

Pattern Mixing: Floral and Stripes

Top & Necklace: Target, Shoes: Old Navy, Shorts: TJ Maxx, Purse: The Limited, Bracelets: Thrifted

Saturday E and I had a wonderful day.  We went for a ride on his bike, had a wonderful lunch at Ruby Tuesdays, did some shopping, went to the ice cream shop, sat by the water and then watched a movie.  It was just what the Doctor ordered.  It was a warm day 90 at the highest and these shorts did the trick.  I thought adding the striped top added a bit of fun to the outfit. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

This week my photographer E,  was out of town on business.  So I had to do with my new iPhone and that meant lack of outfit posts.  Wednesday I had a meeting at NBC about a possible opportunity with the local late night show.  Thursday after I work I did some thrifting at Salvation Army & Goodwill.  I'm looking forward to seeing E tonight I think we will be going out to eat and hopefully catching up over really yummy dinner.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

took the plunge

On Monday after work I took the plunge after contemplating purchasing an iPhone for a few months.  I choose the white iPhone 4s and have been having too much fun getting to know all of the perks of my very first smart phone.  I'm on instagram @free2bestacialee,  can anyone share how to add a instagram button on my sidebar?

Also please suggest away on any apps you think would be helpful!
