I have had several of you say things like, “you are so entertaining” or “you are so funny” or even “you are so real.” Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet. I am going to give you a spoiler alert and go ahead and tell you to put the coffee down before you read much further. I do not want to be responsible for getting your phone, tablet, or computer coffee soaked. I was running late for work (big surprise) and I hurriedly picked out my shoes and ran outside to take my pictures. The dogs always go outside with me to do their morning business. After we came inside I gave Beckley his shot and then they each got a treat. I started to go out the door when I noticed that Beckley (yes I can tell which dog it was) had left me a little treat of his own. I grabbed 2 new puppy pads and went to clean up the mess. I grabbed the Clorox wipes and paper towels and straddled the puppy pad to pick up his treat since it did not hit the pad. Apparently, the soles of my feet might have been wet from the grass when I was outside and my foot started sliding. I was trying to keep from falling but since I was straddling the puppy pad there was no way that I could right myself. Down I went in the most unflattering splits you have ever seen………right into Beckley’s treat. I was even later for work after I had to go and change clothes. When I got to work and told Joe what had happened he was so sympathetic and wanted to make sure that I wasn’t hurt. NOT!!! He was completely doubled over laughing. It is a dang good thing that Beckley is sick or I might have had a few choice words for that dog!Was that real enough for you? lol! Here is another example of wearing a summer top in the fall. This is a tank top but I am still able to get more wear out of it by simply adding a cardigan to the outfit. This stripped yellow and white top looks completely different because I added the dark-colored cardigan and jeans. If I had paired it with white pants you would have immediately thought spring and summer. Here is where I wore it in August.
I am wearing the Berkley (short one) necklace and the Victoria earrings. Both of these pieces feature seafoam green crystals and the necklace also adds amber crystals. I don’t have it on but there is also a matching bracelet called the Hilton. Instead of wearing the Hilton I added the Chloe which has a little darker colored beads. The long necklace I have on is the Bernie. I love this necklace but I will warn you that it clinks together as you walk. Sometimes I think I sound like Bessie the cow walking with this. Lol!Here is a good look at the jeans that never made it to my work. Lol! This is a pair of bootcut Vigoss jeans in a dark wash. I love the white stitching on the jeans, it really makes them noticeable. It is hard to miss these jeans because of that. My Isaac Mizrahi navy ballet flats are what I decided to wear. I normally like to wear high heels but I know that not everyone can wear high heels so I try to throw in some flats occasionally. I do like these flats but they do not have very much padding inside them. They would not be good to walk very long distances in them.
How do you like the dark teal cable-knit cardigan that I have on? This was c/o Chadwick’s of Boston last year and they still have it in limited sizes and colors on their website. This is a heavy-weight sweater and will keep you nice and warm. Here is where I wore it last year. Today is the last day of November and tomorrow starts the last month of the year. I am amazed at how fast this year has passed, it seems like only yesterday that I was making resolutions and now it is time to start thinking about that again. Some of the resolutions have held and some are a distant memory. I hope that 2017 was a good year for you and that 2018 holds many blessings to come. Goodness, I must be in a nostalgic mood.
Signing up for my emails would make a great Christmas present to me. This time of the year is when people go shopping, have a family get together, go to parties, etc., in other words, you quit reading blogs as much. My heart drops when I see my reader numbers go down.
