I hope everyone has some wonderful plans for the weekend. If not, then I hope you can relax and just enjoy spending some time taking care of yourself, that person we sometimes neglect. I am amazed at how many emails that I get from you gurls who say that after reading my blog you are starting to take care of yourself more and invest in you. How did we, as women, ever forget that we matter? I was guilty also, the children and Joe always came first. Truth is, they probably still do, but now I am able to at least spend a small amount of time tending to “my” needs also.Raise your hand if you have not eaten what you wanted because you wanted the kids or your husband to be able to have plenty. Raise your hand if you have not bought yourself clothing because the kids needed new things. Raise your hand if you didn’t buy something for yourself so that you could spend the extra money on gifts for others. How many of us have colored our own hair to save money or done our own nails, etc.? I think we you look up the words giving and selfless you will find a picture of a woman. She might have on older looking clothing and her hairstyle might look like it did 15 years earlier but deep in her soul, she is satisfied. BUT, when those kids leave home and create their own families, then we can finally start putting some emphasis back on ourselves. You deserve it!I have no idea why that morning inspiration came pouring out. My weather is still really nice outside but I am back to a sweater and jeans outfit today which can also be used as a spring transition look. The beige/tan cashmere cocoon sweater is so soft. The color is soft as well as the material. I love the coziness of the sweater and how it wraps around your body. This sweater is lightweight and provides enough warmth in the mornings without being too heavy when the sun starts to warm everything up. If you live in the colder regions then you can slip a heavy coat over the outfit and take it off once you are inside.
I have on the Addison earrings with a 3″ drop today. They are a mustard color which is just a touch darker than my sweater. They aren’t a bright yellow which is what I would have expected when I saw the word mustard. The Rhiannon necklace has been one of my favorite items from the fall catalog. I have worn it and worn it and worn it. I bet all of you are saying, “we know!!!” Lol! The leather straps matched my sweater perfectly and the gold discs popped against the burgundy background. I chose the Gail and the Ashlyn bracelets to go with the gold discs. They are both easily put on with the Gail being on elastic. The soft ankle booties from Old Navy goes perfectly with the sweater. I bought this pair last year and I still ear them a lot. The block heel is very much still on trend and you can’t go wrong with this light fawn color. Since spring is coming soon I am also linking to a few booties that have the open-toe design. PERFECT for spring and showing off a pedicure!One of my favorite color combinations is beige/tan and burgundy. Today I added a burgundy short sleeved sweater under my cardigan. Adding a short sleeve top under the cardigan allows me the opportunity to take off the cardigan if it gets warmer as the day goes on. If I had a sleeveless top on then I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing that at this time of the year. The burgundy provides the perfect backdrop for the gold jewelry and it looks rick looking.
