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

Apparently there's a coin shortage.  Signs are posted in the storefront windows everywhere saying "COIN SHORTAGE - EXACT CHANGE".   The pandemic has definitely affected our pockets and we are looking for ways to maximize our income without having to tap into our savings. Learning to budget can be a daunting task but knowing where you spend your hard earned money is the first step.  There are lots of books available to help get you started.  Currently, I'm reading The 30-Minute Money Plan for Moms by Catey Hill.  Financial expert Catey Hill shows moms how to spend less and save big in this savvy guide where each step is designed to take 30 minutes max.   Let’s face it, kids are expensive–in 24 states, daycare actually costs more than in-state college tuition!

And sure, you know you should learn how to get the most o

Come Out & Play BUT Let's Practice Social Distancing

Come Out & Play  BUT Remember   To   Practice Social Distancing COVID-19, Coronavirus, Da Rona, whatever you're calling it has definitely changed all of our lives.  Families are spending more and more time together.  My husband teases me saying I've spent more time in the backyard since March than I have in the entire 15 years we've lived in our home.  Sad thing is... he's right. We planted a garden.  It was kinda by chance.  I bought these seeds and this starter compost.  Put them near the kitchen and after about a week or so, I started noticing gnats in my kitchen.  I figured it was some of the fresh fruit gone bad.  Tossed the fruit. Wiped everything down.  Gnats were gone.  A few days later... the gnats returned.  FINALLY figured out it that I had this dirt near the kitchen and remembered "Oh, you were going to start gardening."   Seeds planted.  Watered.  Now we wait.  It'll be a few weeks but I am so looking forward to cutting fresh spinach and
