Tired and worn out is how I would describe myself today. The vacation to Alaska was one of the best vacations I have ever been on. The scenery was so spectacular that it would be hard to even describe. I can see why visiting Alaska is on so many people’s bucket list. I have never been a person who wants to travel and part of the reason is that I don’t like to fly. I was letting a fear keep me from experiencing life. Cost is also a reason that I don’t want to travel. It is expensive to fly, get a hotel, eat in restaurants, and then buy everything you want while you are there. But probably the biggest reason that traveling has never held a huge appeal to me is television. I have seen the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, the Vatican, the White House, and even Alaska all on television. I know what all those places look like and I never had to fly and it didn’t cost me a single dime to see them. However, I am starting to rethink that mindset now that I visited Alaska this trip. On television I never felt the spray from Nugget Falls, I never heard the chunks of ice hitting the boat as we slowly inched our way to the South Sawyer Glacier, and I never smelled the fish and water like I did on board the Osprey fishing boat. I can’t believe this but I am going to start making me a list of places I want to “experience” instead of just see. On my Facebook page, I asked everyone to say where they last flew to and it was crazy all the different places that everyone had flown to. It almost seems strange to see photos on my porch. Haha! I can’t believe that I missed this setting since I had been dying for a different look. To tell you the truth, it is easier to “see” the outfit like this than it is when I am in front of scenery. The scenery is so gorgeous that who even looks at the outfit. Also, I missed my tripod. It makes taking pictures a snap. Today’s cute little top is by Umgee. I bought this last year and I love the way it is made. I like the swing style look because there are days where my tummy doesn’t need to have anything touching it. The tassels make the top all flirty and cutesy looking. Look how last time I wore this top I wore it with leggings.
I love the jewelry with this top. The turquoise earrings are called Makia. They are light and have a 1.5-inch drop so they are not huge. I like a 1.5 to 2-inch drop because they show up really well with my hair length but they are not overpowering. Turquoise is great because it looks great in the spring, summer, and fall so you will get a lot of wear out of them.The shorter necklace is the Chrisann. It has wonderful colors on a chain with a little silver bird dangle. It matches the Stevie necklace perfectly. I can’t think of a thing that the Stevie necklace couldn’t match. Lol!I carried the same colors into my bracelets. The Chloe is on the left and it is antique gold with turquoise dangles and it is all one an elastic band. The Bailey is on the right. It is one of my favorite bracelets from the new catalog because of the melon and turquoise color combination. Go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens to place an order. Just pick any party that has my name in it and then hit the SHOP button. Check out the fabulous July special that is going on. This off-white purse is one that can also go with almost anything. I carry this when I am at a loss for what else to carry. I look for details like the gold rivets and the tassels to make the purse memorable.
You don’t often see me wearing flip flop type sandals. I will occasionally wear these Sperry sandals because they are so comfortable. Another reason I like this style shoe is that of convenience. They are super easy to get on and kick off. I am getting lazy in my advancing years. Lol!
These jeans are super cute. This pair was some that I picked up at Cato Fashions a couple months ago. This pair is no longer available on their website. However, there are lots and lots of cute jeans out there. Look for those unique details. Lol!!!
I had R+F withdrawals this past week. When I travel I pack all my R+F products in a separate cosmetic bag than the rest of my makeup. Guess who went to Alaska and left her R+F bag at home? I know it was silly but I felt like that I lost my “glow” over the week. Lol! I thankfully did take my Hydration Serum and Multi-Function Eye Cream.
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!
