Happy Hump Day to everyone! When Wednesday comes around that means it is time to start planning the weekend. Now that it is spring/summer we can start doing more outdoor activities. I hate cleaning house but I could work outdoor all day long. I won’t, but I could. Lol! I know the greenhouses are probably bare because Mother’s Day was last weekend, but I still might make the trek and see if I can find a pot or two to put out on my back porch.It is also time for me to go and buy some ferns for the front porch. I am tired of this poor little shrub that I take my pictures with every day. Here is the problem, I hate watering and feeding plants. I like buying and planting plants but I am not great on the upkeep. I usually buy Coleus plants for the back porch and just ferns for the front because of the ease of care. Yes, I am lazy! (aka busy)I know some of you get frustrated when I wear items on the blog that are not available in stores. I am sorry but I am just like you in that I wear my items more than once and I keep them for years. I would love to be able to have Nordstrom send me a different outfit every day (at no charge of course) so that I could wear them and just send them back. Lol! Until that happens, I will just keep trying to find a similar item for you. Today’s shirt is one that was c/o Purple Poppy. Here is where I wore it last but it looks so different with jeans. This top is still available (here) and it is called the Whimsy Rose Abigail Tunic Desert Bloom Blush. Whew, that was a mouthful! Lol! It is a lightweight tunic/tee and it is perfect for these cooler mornings and nights.
Today’s jewelry is this month’s Posse. This is a beautiful statement waterfall necklace in antiqued bronze and the matching earrings. The Posse is always 25.00 and can be from 1 to 3 items. You can enroll for free and the item of the month will be sent to you. If you don’t like the item that month then you cancel the service (no charge) and you can re-enroll the next time an item catches your fancy. I use these for presents for birthdays and Christmas because they are a great deal.I chose a bracelet called Barbara to match it. It is a basketweave design in the same antiqued gold. When I first glanced at this bracelet in the catalog I thought it was a gun metal color. I had a nice surprise when I opened my package. I also decided to wear the Selma since it is set in the same antique gold color. I like how their jewelry will mix and match easily. I have a party opened www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania9 for those who would like to make a purchase. Old as the hills. I have had these shoes for sooooo long. They are a pair of Kathy Von Zeeland and I love them but they are starting to look ratty. I have looked for a replacement pair but I have such a hard time finding cute flat shoes. These are a snakeskin print with a rhinestone chain across the top. You just don’t find those everywhere.
I don’t really like these jeans. True confessions time. I thought I would and bought two pairs when I bought them, a dark pair and a lighter pair. These are the Boyfriend Jeans from Old Navy and I just find them overall too baggy. I saw my DIL wear them once and asked her if she had lost weight. She just laughed and told me that they were the boyfriend jeans. If you want people to think you have lost weight, then these are the pants for you. Lol!
On cooler days in the springs and even on some summer days, I like to wear a cardigan. I love cardigans for their warmth and also because they make me appear thinner. Both are really good reasons. Hahaha
[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2676152″]A BIG thanks to all of you who follow my blog. It is a labor of love and one that I really enjoy. I hope that it helps you to know you have a friend in Virginia. I had a reader tell me how this blog helped her during the loss of her father. She said she was staying with her mother and would lay awake at night and wait for the next day’s post. It gave her something else to think about for just a little time of the day. That literally brought me to tears. I had hoped to help some with my fashion (whether it was good or what not to do) and I had hoped to inspire some with my Sunday posts, but I never thought that it could mean something more to someone. Thanks for letting me be a part of your life. 😘
Do you know what my number one referrer page is? It is Pinterest! I truly appreciate every time you “pin” a picture. Heck, pin ALL the pictures if you want. Lol!
