Tuesday Temptations!

So in honor of the brand new plus size online retailer Eliza Parker, I am choosing items from their website for my Tuesday Temptations. There are lots of great pieces, but I managed to whittle my choices down to these few:

What do you think of Eliza Parker's collection? Do you plan on making any purchases?

Outfit of the Burnt Lunch

Jimmy and I went to lunch at our favorite Mexican place today, and they burned both of our lunches! They replaced Jimmy's right away, but mine took awhile so I ended taking it to go. Eh, it happens.

Here's what I wore to eat a burnt quesadilla:
It was windy today!

How cute are these details? I love the buttons.

Outfit Details:
White Dress: Fashion Bug
Striped Nautical Bolero: Fashion to Figure
Gold Sandals: Avenue
Necklace: Avenue

And here's my nail polish right now. Pretty orange color!

Outfit of the Birthday party- plus new hair!

Today was my youngest nephew's third birthday party, so we went over to my sis-in-laws for a cookout and cake.
The birthday boy, Alex. He got so excited when he opened this toy!

Time for presents! (That's my almost five-year old nephew on the far left)

Jimmy acting silly with a creepy toy frog.
This was the gift Alex got from his parents. This thing is so cool. It has a real radio in it!

And now onto the outfit! It wasn't anything fancy.

I don't know why I look so stumpy in this picture. It might be because my husband is 6'1'' and I'm 5'4'', so the angle is a little skewed. Really this shirt isn't quite this long, and my legs aren't quite this short. : )

Outfit Details:
White Lace Camisole: Avenue
Floral top: Old Navy
Jeans: Avenue
Flip Flops: Avenue
Earrings: Avenue
Bangle: Avenue

I don't know if you can tell (I couldn't seem to get any good pictures!), but my hair is auburn now with coppery highlights. I had JeriLe cut it straight across instead of in my typical angled bob as well. Not very dramatic, but a nice change.

I got into a conversation about hairstyles and color today, and now I'm curious; Do you tend to change your hair based on the seasons? I know a lot of women go shorter and lighter in the summer, but I've never really been one to do so.

Thank you!

I just wanted to let you all know that I appreciate you reading my blabbering! I am so grateful to have met so many great people, and to have made some wonderful friends. So to show my appreciation, I will be having a giveaway once I reach 50 followers! I'll be dropping hints about what I'm going to give away, so stay tuned!

Gettin' my hair did with the girls!

So tonight my friend (and hairdresser) JeriLe came over to do mine, my sister in law, and my friend Stacee's hair. Of course I had to take pictures!

What do you think?

Stacee in the hot seat!

My sis-in-law Mandy, just chillin'.

JeriLe is blowing you all kisses!

We had a blast, and I'm so glad I got to hang out with my girls. I'll be taking pics of my new hairdo tomorrow to post!

Daily Outfit

I received my Fashion to Figure order the other day, and thought I should break out my new duds! I ordered the nautical bolero from last Tuesday's post, and a crochet back shrug. I wore the shrug today with my new black maxi dress from Fashion Bug. It was super comfy and cute (comfy being key as I had a 9am-4pm class today).

Jimmy thought it would be funny to get the dog in the background of my picture doing her "business". This is my "No, Honey!" pose.Outfit Details:
Black Maxi Dress: Fashion Bug ( I think I got the last one or something. It was the last one in the store, and I don't even see it online.)
Lace top camisole: Lane Bryant
Cream crochet back shrug: Fashion to Figure
Silver gladiators: Torrid
Awesome dangly earrings: Forever 21

I hope everyone else had a great day! Are you rocking the maxi trend? Do you love it/hate it?

Tuesday Temptations - Linen & Lace edition

So I've decided to take the easy way out with my "Tuesday Temptations" post and use polyvore to make my posts. This way all the items I've used are viewable and clickable without me having to spend time copying and pasting links.

Loving the Reflection is now on Facebook!

Friend me! My page is still pretty bare, but I'm working on it!

In Support of Gabi!

The gorgeous and wonderful Gabi over at Young, Fat, & Fabulous made a very exciting announcement via her blog today. She is one of 20 finalists in the running to become the very first ever MTV Twitter Jockey! She needs lots of support and Twitter followers people (username @gabifresh). Wouldn't it be awesome to have one of our own curvy fashionistas on MTV?!

Here is her video for the contest:

Daily Outfit

Today Jimmy and I went out to lunch with my sis-in-law, bro-in-law, and nephews, at one of my favorite restaurants. This place has the best fish and chips! I forgot to take my camera with us to lunch (boo), but I did get Jimmy to take a picture of my outfit when we got back home.
Outfit Details:
Tank: Torrid (purchased during one of their awesome clearance sales)
Coral Cardi: Old Navy
Jeans: Avenue
Sandals: TorridSuper Sparkly Necklace: Forever 21
Knotted Earrings: Forever 21

We were driving home from lunch today and my husband said "Your necklace is like a disco ball!" and pointed at the ceiling in the car. Of course, I had to take a picture.

When we got home we turned on the sprinkler, and the dog kept trying to drink from it. I found it hilarious.
And here's my new nailpolish (and sausage fingers). It's called "For Audrey" by
China Glaze. It's a Tiffany blue color. Loving it!
