I don’t remember buying it, and I was a little surprised when I looked at the label. It came from Cato Fashions, I figured I had bought it at TJ Maxx or Belk. It is on sale right now for only $12.99. I didn’t get a photo of the back, but it is a lace up design.I was going to get my hair cut/colored, so I took a 3/4 sleeve cardigan with me. My hair stylist must stay hot, because she keeps that place FREEZING! I am grateful when I have to get under the hair dryer. Lol! I got smart today, even though it is in the high 80’s, and took my cardi with me.The light blue just matched the small amount of blue in the medallion print. I can’t say I liked the outfit better one way or the other, but I liked the warmth of the cardigan. It is one that I have had for a while, and it is by Old Navy.
Blue Cardigan: Similar | Similar | PlusThere is so much print on this shirt, I almost didn’t even wear a necklace. I finally grabbed my Zuni layering necklace from Stella & Dot. After I put it on, I liked the way it looked on the shirt. It looks like I have a pretty good tan going on, but it is all self tanner. I have had several readers ask me about my products and how I apply them. Here is the post I did on how I get a faux tan.I should have taken a close-up photo of my leather bracelet. It says G.R.I.T.S., Girls Raised In The South. How cute is that? These pants are Harve Benard and they reminded me of riding pants. It’s hard to see the details on them, but they have a seam at the knee going from side to side, then a seam down the middle from the knee to the ankle. Here is the last time I wore them, I wore riding boots with them Lol!
Pants: Similar | Similar | SimilarI am not rolling my eyes at someone, there must have been somebody coming down the hill that I saw. I think it was Joe being silly. Since I told you a story about my dad yesterday, I think I will tell you a short story about Joe today.
Joe’s family has an old hunting cabin that is surrounded by the National Forest. He and the other men in the family have gone hunting there for years. It is not a wooden cabin, which is what came to my mind, but a block building instead. He got the bright idea to take me, and the kids, with him for a weekend. We were not going hunting, just enjoying some peace and quite in the mountains. We drove the two hours to get there, then we dropped off out stuff at the cabin and decided to go for a long walk. Joe was pointing out all kinds of trees, weeds, flowers, etc. along the way. When we came to a huge pile of bear poop, the kids were all interested, but I was ready to head back to the cabin. It was a lot of fun, the kids running and playing along the way. Joe had warned me, that since the cabin was not occupied, that there might be some mice. I thought I would be smart and take our cat with us. This was no ordinary cat, she was a demon. It took months before anyone was able to even picked this cat up, but she had finally settled into the family nicely. The kids and Joe were all sitting on the couch, but I refused since I was thinking a mouse could be inside those cushions. Instead, I sat in a wooden rocking chair across from them. The cat was sleeping soundly on one of the beds. While we were talking, one of the kids said, “Look at that mouse over there by Mom’s head.” Sure there is, I said. But when I turned my head, this little mouse was walking on the bed rail beside my head, all the time that mean cat of mine was sleeping away. I jumped up and started slinging our things back in the cases. We are going home!!! They all thought it was hilarious, but I was having none of that. I made us leave and drive back the two hours to get home. I might have exaggerated about liking to rough it. Haha! Ever so often, Joe will ask me if I want to go to the cabin for the weekend. Lol!
