It is finally here, Friday….. That day we all look forward to, the one that makes all the rest of the days bearable. The truth is, I don’t do anything different on Friday than I do the rest of the week, but I know that it means I don’t have to get up early tomorrow. But since we never set an alarm clock, I get up the same time EVERY day. On Saturday you don’t have to get dressed up and put on makeup. You can just lay around the house in your pj’s and watch TV all day long. NOT!!!!! Someone might come to the door, you need to get your clothes on and put on your 5 minute face. That is a blush, eyeliner, mascara, and some lipstick. Just 5 minutes and you feel so much better about yourself. If you have never watched my makeup routine, (More than 5 minutes Haha) go here. For the written breakdown of products, go here.Let me start with my hair. I have modified it slightly. It has more layers, so no more bob, and the red color is slightly darker. The red was fading so fast, that we decided to darken it some. Honest opinions only, don’t sugar coat it or say something nice if you don’t mean it. Yesterday I showed you my favorite bracelet, and today I am going to show you my favorite necklace.This is the Atlas necklace by Plunder. What makes this necklace so cool, is the fact that YOU personalize the necklace to be anything you want. Some people are HUGE sports fans, so you can get a necklace with their teams favorite colors or symbols. Some people want a certain verse from the Bible, and some have a special saying that is sentimental to them. All of these things can be put in the Atlas, no one else will be wearing your necklace.I added my grandbabies. I took their picture, and cropped it into a circle. I then added the text to say My Blessings. For the metal tag, I added Nana, which three of them call me, and NeeNee, which Emersyn calls me. These make great Christmas gifts, I am giving one to each of my DIL’s, and I probably will do one also for a few other people. These cost 28.00, and makes a one of a kind gift.I wore a camouflage shirt a couple of days ago, that you gurls seemed to like, so today I went with camo on my lower half. I thought it might hide a few of those pesky pounds, but no such luck. I bought these distressed camo jeans last year at TJ Maxx, and truthfully I was not sure what I thought about them. I have NEVER owned a pair of camo pants before. I had only been doing the blog a couple of months, and I thought that these would be outside my comfort zone, so I decided to give them a try. Besides the print, there is the matter of the distressing. I know some of you are not huge fans, but it gives such a youthful appearance.
I know you have been eyeing my booties. These are truly adorable, and I just received them. White Mountain Shoes contacted me about a collaboration, and since I already wear some of their shoes, I knew they had quality shoes. I picked out two pairs of shoes, well actually both pairs are boots for the upcoming fall and winter season. I got this pair in the mail, tried them on, and ran back to the house and re-took my pictures. I had on another pair of boots, but when these came, those went out the back door. It was like they knew I would be wearing this outfit today. Lol! These are called the Serving Taupe Suedette Bootie. The heel is 3.5″, just perfect for me, I wore them all day with no discomfort at all. When you put on a new shoe, you have to worry about them hurting, but these fit perfect and were comfortable. I wear a size 9 in most shoes, and these run true to size. The lace up detail is what sold me on these booties. Maybe there is a little retro vibe going on with the lace-up, I don’t know, I just know they are cute as can be. Oh yeah, the rest of my outfit. I have on a plain tank top from Old Navy, and a charcoal blazer. My rusched sleeve charcoal blazer is a couple of years old. However, it is still on QVC, and comes in an array of colors. The sleeves on this blazer set it apart from the pack. I almost always wear a jacket or a cardigan. They help hide any rolls around my waistline, and they create a smaller waist illusion. I even wear this jacket over long sleeves in the winter, see here. The ivory purse goes with almost anything, I could carry this purse all year round.
You can see that I have a few Halloween items out already, I am gearing up!!! I loved all your suggestions for Halloween costumes, and after seeing my outfit today, maybe I’ll go as Elmer Fudd, and get Joe to go as Bugs Bunny. Hahahaha That will be the day…………
Be sure to check out white mountain, they have really good quality shoes, that we can all afford. I can’t wait to show you my second pair. They are a knee boot, and since we are going through a cold spell here, they may make their début really soon.
