Why, or why didn’t I listen to you gurl’s and head to Las Vegas or someplace this past weekend? I foolishly opted to stay home instead thinking that I could get caught up on some cleaning. I forgot the cardinal rule about cleaning: you make a HUGE mess before it ever gets clean. I decided to tackle the computer room. Some people would call that room the office but most would people would call my room the junk room. I am not saying which one would be correct but since you know I have the tendency to be a pack rat you can probably guess.I don’t know what has gotten into me lately but I don’t want a lot of crap anymore. I started pulling out things and putting them in a pile for getting rid of. Then I added another pile and another pile and another pile. Finally, Joe decided he better go get me a couple 8 foot long tables for me to pile the stuff on. After I had gone through about 1/2 of the room I already had both tables overflowing. I messaged my next door neighbor and asked her if she wanted everything to put in her yearly yard sale. Thankfully she said yes and her and her grandson came over and started packing everything off. When I told her grandson that all of the stuff came from one small room and that I was only halfway done, he looked at me like I was crazy. I had to laugh because I agree with him. Lol!!! Besides, I might need that room for another closet before long. Hahaha! I am still in my brown phase for clothing. And, if you have noticed, I am also doing a lot of monochromatic styling here lately. (here and here) This duster cardigan was in my Trunk Club box that I received a couple of weeks ago. I kept two items from the box and this was one of them. Here is the other item. I loved this cardigan as soon as I laid eyes on it. It is a light tan color and it has a large shawl collar. The brand is Leith which is not a brand that I was familiar with. My sweater is a size large but I would suggest sizing down one size. This is a tad big for me and I could have easily worn a medium. This is a nice weight sweater, not too light and not too heavy. This is the baby bear of sweaters – just right.The Delsie earrings are hard to see. These are 1″ round studs in tortoise shell design. These earrings work great for anyone who does not like longer earrings but still wants to make a statement. The necklace was last months Plunder Posse. The Posse has sold out the last two months so at the beginning of next month I will immediately show a picture of the item that will be for December. That will at least give you a chance to sign up since you can’t right at this moment. The reason that you can’t sign up right now is that this months Posse is sold out already. The date that you sign up for the service is the date that it will ship to you monthly. You can cancel at any time and the sign up is free. The Posse is $25.00 and can contain from 1 to 3 items. These make GREAT Christmas/Birthday/Teacher etc. gifts. I have on some of my favorite bracelets. The leather one with the gold discs is the Scarlett and the stretch bracelet with the different colored stone beads is the Clementine. Most of my Alex and Ani bracelets are gifts from Rodan + Fields and I can hook you up with that too. Lol!!!I am a fan of corduroy. I grew up wearing corduroy and it just feels comfortable to me. I am not sure that it is on the high end of fashion but, what the heck. I love the darker tan color, it is a richer version and I like that. This pair is by Ralph Lauren and I can’t remember where I got them. This is a bootcut version so I had no trouble pulling them over the top of my ankle boots from Old Navy, which are on sale right now.
Finally, I am left with only my LOGO tunic tank top to talk about. This is one that I bought at the overstock store in town back a couple months ago. I call it a dark gold or dark mustard color but you can call it whatever you like. This color is great when paired with most other fall colors such as burgundy, dark teal, or even the dark plums. They all will have a great contrast to them. I am linking to several similar tops by LOGO in this color but QVC won’t let me always change the picture they show. So, even though these are shown in a different color, they do come in a darker gold also.
This is normally where I say a little blurb about R+F but today I am adding something different. You can still email me if you have an interest in R+F at firstname.lastname@example.org. But, today I wanted you gurls to help me by participating in something that my preacher mentioned in church yesterday. He talked about being thankful and how he had recently been at a nursing home in our town where the residents all participated in a “thankful” session. He would say a letter of the alphabet and they would list things they were thankful for that began with that letter. Would you play along with me? I am really interested in seeing the variety of answers. They do not all have to be soul-searching answers, they can be playful and tongue-in-cheek. So, today we start with “A” which one of the answers the residents gave was America. That is a great answer but I am going with Ashleigh. That is my daughter. Please comment your answer.
