A little cool spell has settled in for a few days. It was only a high in the low 50’s today, how can that be? Has the weather man not looked at the calendar? Does he not realize this is the “middle” of May? It is supposed to be bathing suit weather, or at the very least, short weather. Instead, I had on a North Face jacket when I went out to dinner. That is just not right.My daughter (click here to read about her) called to wish me a happy birthday on Saturday night. She mentioned that she was going to go camping since she had just got off work. I was sitting in the truck with my heated seats on, and was thinking she must have lost her mind. Why would anyone want to go anywhere outside while it is so cold?The fact that she lives in Alaska really made me think she was going crazy. I asked her what the temperature was, and when she said 65-70, I was floored. Here I am living in the south, and Alaska is 15 degrees warmer. Something is just not right with that picture. How do you like this outfit? I have had this blouse for several years. In fact, I have no idea when, or where, I bought it. I really like the print, and I think of royalty when I see this blouse. Maybe it is the gold braiding, the purple color, or maybe I am just a little strange, but I feel regal in this. The blouse is by Brooke Leigh and I really like the color and the print. It is very sheer, so I always wear a camisole underneath the blouse.
Blouse: Lucky | Jones New York | Anne KleinThese ankle pants are by Attyre, and I can’t remember where they came from. That just goes to show you how long I have had them. Basically any beige/cream pant would work for this outfit. These are a little more beige than they appear in the photos. I also took this opportunity to wear my yellow espadrilles by Michael Kors. I bought these years ago at some wear-house type store. They mark down items according to how long they have been in the store. I bought three pair of Michael Kors shoes that day, and didn’t pay over $15.o0 a pair. Don’t hate me because I am a bargain shopper. Haha

Here is a side shot of the blouse. It is very flattering with the high-low style. I am wearing my Michael Kors watch that was a gift for my birthday 3 years ago. I also have on my crystal and pearl necklace from Chloe & Isabel and a bracelet from Plunder Designs. My BFF, Bertha, (click to read about her) just signed up to sell Plunder today so I am sure you will be seeing lots of this brand on my blog in the near future.
Watch: Michael Kors | Stuhrling | Peugeot
Another side view. I have no idea why I carried this dark gray purse. It is fine, but it doesn’t enhance the outfit in any way. It is simply carrying my stuff. Of course, that is what a purse is supposed to do, ” good job purse!” Anyway, it is by Aimee Kestenberg, and you can read about it here.I must have thought you needed to see the top of my head. You sure can see all the different shades of red and blonde that I have running through my hair. There was a lady in the store today wanting to show her hairdresser my picture so that she could her’s done the same. I don’t know if she was wanting the style or the color. Well, this about wraps up today’s look. I think I about covered everything. Be sure to say a quick prayer for my sister as she gets ready to give her speech tonight. (click here for a hilarious story from my youth) I know she will do great, but she is super nervous. I would hate to see her throw up on the stage. I might laugh later, but I would really hate it at the time. LOL!!! What are sisters for???
