WIWW: A Classic Look + Link Up

I'm going with a classic Wednesday post and going to talk about some random things that have been going on lately.

- To me, this look takes all the classic pieces I have in my closet, and combines them into one great outfit. When my friend was taking these pictures, we kept talking about how great and comfy this outfit was! 

- You know what's funny? I'm not even a soccer fan, yet I'm guilty of yelling at the tv while watching the Women's World Cup. I guess the competitive side of me just naturally gets into it, but by my shouting and hand gestures, you'd think I was a huge fan.

- The last two days I've had to wake up and go to a workshop a school and by the end of the day I feel like I've been hit by a bus. I can hardly keep my eyes open and all I want to do is lay around. It's amazing how quickly you can fall out of "work" shape. 

- I've already worn this dress an embarrassingly high number of times.

- Does anyone watch Devious Maids? If you don't, you need to. So good.

- While we're on the topic of shows, I'm still hating The Bachelorette. It is terrible this season! I'm ready for Bachelor in Paradise!

Now for the link up!

- All I ask is you link back to my blog and link to a specific post.

- Write about something fashion related!

- Instagram @SarahTuckerUp for more outfits and randoms!

A Funny Story

tee (they restocked all sizes! ps: size down) // skirt // sandals // cuff  // jenny bird earrings // watch 
I know, I'm sure the title is what brought you here. I don't blame you. It's not everyday you come across a lucky mole.

Last week I went to lunch with a friend and while I was waiting for her to get there, the waiter brought over some water. Before he said anything he GASPED and said, "That mole! Oh my God, you've got a lucky mole!" I'm sitting here thinking, "Lucky mole? What the heck?!" He was referring to the mole at the bottom of my neck.

I proceed to question him about it and he says that his grandmother used to say that moles in that area will bring you good luck in life.

Now, this man is probably in his 60's, Middle Eastern, and his name is Alibaba, but he says I can call him "Ali."

Alrighty, Ali-boy, let's hear about this luck.

He goes on to tell me that his wife has a lucky mole on her breast/nipple/breast...he literally said those words (my face looked like this)...and that she has been so lucky in her life. Two beautiful kids, a great husband (as he refers to himself) and she has been able to be a homemaker, which was her desire. He says his grandmother was so lucky to have 17 kids; seven girls and ten boys. Yikes, you can imagine the look on my face thinking about having 17 kids.

Ali then says, "And Cindy Crawford, you know? She has that lucky mole on her face and look at all the luck it has brought her." He then noticed the mole on my face that is located close to where Cindy's is (you can't see it in any of these pictures because it is where my laugh lines are) and he, seriously I can't make this up, GASPS again and says, "OH MY GOD! You're going to be so, so lucky! OH MY GOD! Where else do you have lucky moles? Let me see!"

At this point I am milking it and just playing along with Ali's game and tell him that I am just an all around moley person and so I must be the luckiest person alive!

He tells me, "Never, ever erase the moles. You wait and see, you will be very, very lucky."

Well, Mr. Alibaba, in my short life here on earth, I'd say I've already hit the luck jackpot. I've got my health, my husband, and the best darn friends and family a girl could ask for. But I'll take all the luck I can get!

Happy Camper

tank // shoes // skirt
I'm a happy camper today because it's Friday! The work week is finally over.

Never mind, who are we kidding? I'm off for the next two months. We may need to replace the cushions on one side of the couch because my butt has been holding them down really nicely.

I hope to have a "day in the life of a stay at home wife" post up next week (read last year's post here). I just need to make sure it is a day that I actually do something or else I'm going to get hate mail for being a lazy bum. My Real Housewives of the Suburbs lifestyle is almost going to make all the RHOC jealous. You just wait for it.

But, in all honesty, being off is such a blessing. I've been able to have lunch with friends I don't see often, run errands that have needed to be ran for months, write many to-do lists and proceed to do everything but what is on the list, and regain my sanity.

Happy Friday!
