Oh, my goodness, gurls! I was blown away by all over your responses on my post this past Sunday. 😘 They were so thoughtful and I even shed a few tears reading some of them. It will never get old having someone tell me that I made a difference in their life. ❤ Since this coming Sunday is Easter, I have decided to wear mostly dresses this week. I remember as a child that I couldn’t wait to get a new Easter dress. I don’t remember wearing a hat though. I must not have looked good in hats even back then. Lol!I don’t wear a lot of dresses to work, remember I work in a lumber company, so these have been taken after I got home from church. Joe and I will normally go out to eat after church and then before I change into something more comfortable, I will go and take my pictures. Yesterday we decided to go and eat the buffet at the local Chinese restaurant. We have both been trying to watch what we are eating so we ate a salad (or at least I did) and then ate the chicken and broccoli since it was one of the few choices that weren’t deep fried. They brought the check and our fortune cookie. I took a bite of my cookie and read my fortune to Joe. Then I asked him what his had said since I saw that he was eating his cookie. He started looking for the slip of paper when it dawned on him that he hadn’t taken it out of the cookie. He had just popped the entire thing in his mouth. LOL!!! I laughed and laughed and then I told him that his future must sure taste good.Do you recognize this dress? I wore this just a few days ago on the blog (HERE) so you should remember it. This outfit was part of my before and after type series that I have been doing. I wore this dress from Old Navy to church and then came home and turned it into the everyday outfit that I posted about last Tuesday. That was just showing you how versatile that a dress can be. I love the softness of this dress, it actually took me by surprise when I received it. It has a heathered or brushed feel about the dress. It is a little shorter than some of you will probably like but you can add tights or leggings to make you feel more comfortable if you need to. This dress runs true to size and a large fit me perfectly. It also comes in Heathered Gray and I think I am going to order that right now. They have a 40% off sale running through today. It is difficult to see my bright gold earring because of all of my hair. Lol! I certainly have a head full of hair and it does not always cooperate. The earrings are 2″ long and have a bright blue bead attached. They are the Aila and are 12.00. Unfortunately, the Corey bracelet has sold out and I see that it was on the HUGE list of retiring items. That just means that we have all kinds of brand new items heading out way in the upcoming month!!! I am starting to get excited now that the time is finally getting near. Be sure to go check out what is still on the website at plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and pick a party with my name on it. This deep teal cardigan is the same length all the way around. I have seen a lot that is shorter in the back and longer in the front also. This is made from a jersey knit material so it is silky feeling. I bought it last fall at a local boutique and I think the name was Vena Outfitters. I have another dark teal cardigan but it is a sweater material. I had to look twice to make sure that it wasn’t the same one.
Let’s be honest, the scarf is what “makes” this outfit!!! It ties everything together so well. That is one of the main reasons that I am always on the lookout for a scarf that has wonderful colors or patterns. The scarf takes the outfit from plain to “put together” and that is what my goal always is. I can’t remember where I bought this scarf and I have taken the tag off so that it didn’t show. I even looked back at some old posts of me wearing this (here and here) and I didn’t mention it then either, so I probably haven’t known where it came from for a long time.
I hope your Monday is going well for you and that spring is right around the corner. Since it snowed here this weekend, I was just thankful that Easter Sunday is next weekend when the weather is forecasted to be 67 and partly cloudy. It makes all of the egg hunts so much nicer.
I really appreciate all of the shares and the pins of my outfits that you have been doing. PLEASE continue to do that, you won’t believe the difference it has made in my number of visitors to my blog.
