5 Flattering Trendy Summer Fashions that Won't Break Your Piggy Bank

The Summer 2016 countdown has begun.  Temps are rising.  Sun is shining.  Time to pack away bulky Winter sweaters and whip out the sundresses.   

2016 Fashion Forecast calls for denim, coral, jumpsuits and rompers, bold jewelry and sundresses.  

1.  Denim is always on the forefront when it comes to Summer fashion and this year is no exception.  Denim shorts with frayed edges or rolled cuffs are haute.
2.  Jumpsuits and rompers are another stylish fashion choice for Summer 2016.  This black, cropped, halter jumpsuit paired with a pair of wedges is sure to make a statement.  Saucy enough to wear to the office and sassy enough to wear to the club, jumpsuits can go from 9 to 5... that's 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. in the club.  
3.  Coral is the color of Summer 2016.  Whether you're rocking coral in a jumpsuit, rompers, sundress, or as an accessory, coral is the color of Summer.  Alight has tons of coral and other hot Summer colors for plus size divas like myself.  Alight offers stylish, affordable fashions in sizes from 12 - 34.   Check out these Coral fashions...
4.  Whether it's a dress, a jumpsuit or romper, pair with some gladiator sandals and big bold jewelry to complement your Summer look.  Did I mention Alight offers accessories to pair with your Summer outfit?

5.  Sundresses reign supreme on the Summer 2016 fashion list.  There's just something about seeing me in a sundress that my husband loves.  In fact, he often recites lyrics of that Coco Brown tune titled "Sundress" which Coco Brown says "The soul of your femininity fits you just like that dress see, I don't need to see designer clothes, silk robes, or fish net pantyhose. Cause to me, that sundress you wear is the next best thing to you naturally…"
I love the feel of a dainty sundress against my Summer skin and they pair so nicely with a pair of heeled sandals or a dainty thong sandal.  Alight sundresses are true to size and perfect for hot Summer days and cool Summer nights.

To celebrate these flattering, trendy Summer fashions that won't break your piggy bank, Alight is giving one lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog the opportunity to win an item from

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
