Coffee and Shopping Are My Cardio

 Every now and then I'll spot a graphic tee, read what it says, laugh and say "Yep, that's me!".  This top not only did that, but it had so many other things going for it that I knew the minute I saw it that it would be going home with me.


This long sleeve tee is actually Exersion exercise wear from JCPenney;  but I bought it as a fashion statement because I loved the message, the long sleeves, the long length, and the thin sweatshirt material.  I hate thick, bulky sweatshirts because they are not only uncomfortable, but they add a lot of unwanted pounds to my frame.  This sweatshirt is a thin knit.


I wore this outfit driving home from Chicago during the week of Thanksgiving.  It was the perfect travel outfit.  The vest was all I needed for warmth getting in and out of a car for potty breaks and meals.  I bought the vest at Old Navy and last showed it to you HERE.


I normally wear leggings when traveling by car, but these Kut from the Kloth Kate boyfriend jeans from Stitch Fix are so comfy that I can wear them when I travel as well.


My scarf I bought last year at the Mall of America the day after Christmas.  The Mall of America has the most AMAZING Day-After-Christmas sales.  Last year I bought dozens of new items and I don't think I even spent a hundred dollars.  I got this pink scarf and another one in white probably for around $3.00;  but I don't remember what store it was.  My husband and I are definitely going back this year for more deals.

 Now for the deal of the day:  Would you believe I got this great top for only a few dollars?  Yup, I did!  I had a $15.00 off a $15.00 purchase from JCP.  The top was on sale for $17.99, so I got it for $3.00!!!!!!  I know your all sick of hearing about my JCPenney purchases, but seriously, it is the place to shop if you love clothes but need to stick to a budget.  If you have a credit card with them, they send you lots of great coupons!


I can't say enough about this sweatshirt.  I just love, love, love it!  It is totally me.  I feel so good when I'm wearing something that is not only true to my style and personality, but is so comfy as well!


I always wear jewelry under my scarf in case I get hot and remove the scarf.  I kept the look casual by adding a silver braided necklace.


And I also wore a simple silver bracelet as well.


My new grey booties I showed you on Friday's Fashion Post HERE, echoed the grey graphics in the font.


And yup, there's that burgundy bag again.  It just goes with everything.  No worries, on Friday's Fashion Post I will have a new bag to show you!


Textured Frost Free Vest - Old Navy:  Here,  Exersion Graphic Sweatshirt - JCPenny:  HERE,  Nicole Miller Kira Satchel (no longer available) similar:  HERE,  Kut from the Kloth Kate Boyfriend Jeans (no longer available) similar:  HERE, and Blowfish Suba Bootie - DSW:  HERE.

Have a Great Day!  Amy

  7. What a fun shirt, and love it paired with the vest!
    I'm not really trying to take a blogging break, just a break from my linky parties, but it really is getting so hard for me to get a card made. I think I only made 2 Christmas cards this year...I wanted to do photo cards, but didn't even get a chance to do those! And time is running out quickly.

    1. Thanks Elli! I just did my photo cards today, and all my Christmas Cards were done two years ago because I goofed last year and ordered the wrong size photo cards and had to remake new Christmas Cards at the last minute. Oh well, it turned out to be a blessing because I didn't have to make any this year!

    1. Thank you, yes, I want more of these thin sweatshirts myself. They have other styles and slogans, but I didn't like them...boo-hoo!

  17. I love this outfit, Amy! The sweatshirt is so fun! I'm always on the lookout for soft, thin sweatshirts, too. Big, thick, bulky ones are so not flattering, and they are uncomfortable... I can see why you love this one so much! And I love the reds and pink with the outfit - so pretty! Finally, those boots are truly fabulous!
