Did you know that driving on the sidewalk was a bad thing? Yes, I mean driving in a car and not with a bicycle. Lol! When Joe and I were in Florida last week we had a small run in with a law enforcement official. Joe was wanting Oysters and we found a nice little restaurant on the beach. They had outdoor seating, lots of music, and dollar bills hanging from the ceiling. I am not an Oyster fan but I found something that I could eat too. When we left I asked him if he remembered to get the credit card since I hadn’t seen him put it in his wallet. He remarked something smart like, “take care of yourself.”We left the restaurant and got about 1/2 mile down the road when he says, “crap, I forgot my phone.” I held my tongue as we turned around and headed back to the restaurant. As we got to the end of the road it was backed up with around 6 or 7 cars and no one could pull out because of the beach traffic. Joe pulled out around the line of traffic and drove on the grass to where the restaurant was since it was right around the corner. However, a policewoman happened to be sitting right there and threw on the lights. She gave him a ticket for driving on the sidewalk, which technically he was on the grass but he wasn’t going to argue with her. He apologized for being in the wrong and told her he was just in a hurry to get his phone. She was not amused and she went back to write his ticket. He told me to hop out of the car and go to the restaurant and get his phone. They had already cleaned the table so I asked the waiter. He came back in just a few minutes and handed me a phone and I started out the door. Then I looked down at the phone and realized Joe didn’t have a T-Mobile phone. Lol! I went back to the restaurant and they had a whole assortment of phones to choose from. Evidently, that happens a lot. The rest of the time we were in Florida I would sweetly ask if he had his phone before we left anywhere. Hahaha!Just in case you needed proof, here is a picture from this morning. This is tucked into a corner in my living room and it is out of the way so it doesn’t bother me at all.Mustard is going to be huge this Fall. It is such a beautiful Fall color and I love pairing it with burgundy or teal. This is a sleeveless top from Van Heusen that I bought several years ago on a trip to Atlanta to visit my sister. It is a crepe material so it looks dressy. I really like buying sleeveless tops so that I can wear them throughout the spring and summer and then wear them into the fall and winter by just adding a cardigan or jacket. Here is where I wore this in the spring of 2016 and I put a lavender sweater with it.
I have a pair of Juliet earrings on. These have gray beads and ivory accents. They are on a gold base but they have silver hooks. I thought when I got that these earrings that they reminded me of fall. Here is an up-close look at the matching necklace, the Imogene. This is a longer necklace of 33″ so it is great to wear with sweaters. I love the beaded tassel which is a little different from the normal threaded or leather tassels. The bracelet that I have on is the Selma. It has 4 different styles linked together to create one bracelet. The Topaz and bright green colors are perfect for fall. You can see the extra length I have so this is adjustable up to 10″ just in case you need a larger bracelet.I have been waiting until fall so that I could wear these Earth shoes. I bought them back a month ago at the overstock store. I went to the store on Thursday and they said they would be starting to put out some of the new fall items. Woohoo! Guess where I will be going on Friday.If you don’t own a denim jacket then you need to get one. They are perfect for throwing on at a moment’s notice over anything. They look fabulous with dresses and well as tops. This one is from Old Navy and it comes in light or dark and also in plus sizes. The claret jeans, (fancy word for burgundy) are by Earl jeans. You will be seeing a lot of these jeans in the coming months because they are perfect for the up coming fall months.
It is Friday and I am ready for a relaxing weekend. I doubt if that is going to happen but I am ready for it never the less. I know you are used to me talking to you every day about Rodan + Fields and I am sure a lot of you (MOM) stop reading my blog at this point. Lol! I am here to tell you not to do that.
