We made it to another wild and wonderful Friday. This week has really flown by for me since I was off on Monday and then I had a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday. I love the weekends even though I don’t do anything exciting normally. This weekend I think I will work on my taxes. (Insert gasp) OR, if that seems too overwhelming, then I might clean out some closets because they are getting out of hand. I have a choice, go buy more hangers or get rid of a lot of the clothes that I don’t wear. So far I have been choosing the hangers. Lol!I worked in an accounting office many, many years ago and I loved doing tax returns. Somehow it is not near as much fun now that I have gotten older. Before my taxes were pretty straightforward, I had w-2’s and a few expenses but they were easy to file. Now, with the blog, Plunder, and Rodan + Fields added to the mix, it has gotten a lot more complicated. I keep thinking that I will be better organized every year but I know that I probably won’t. I do keep little folders and little totes where I keep receipts but that is about the extent of my organization. It will take me at least a couple of days to get it a legible form to give to the accountant. Anybody else put off filing their taxes until the last day? Lol!!!I have loved this striped shirt since I bought it a couple years ago. It is one of those no-iron shirts so what is not to love? I think that it is the crispness of the shirt that I like, it looks so “sharp.” This is a classic style and the print is classic also, so I should be able to wear this shirt for many more years to come. I bought this at a Van Heusen outlet store on my way to Georgia to visit my sister. The only thing that I am not happy about with this shirt is that it is not tailored. It is boxier through the torso area and can look sloppy. I am thinking about taking it and having it tailored to fit me better.
I decided to accessorize with red today. I added these lightweight metal statement earrings from Plunder Design. These have a filigree design around the edge that gives these earrings a unique detail. The Diana earrings have a 3.5″ drop and since I just read an article from Vogue that said HUGE earrings are going to be a trend this year you might want to get used to seeing earrings this big. Because I want to ease the rest of everyone’s pain of doing taxes, I am going to be giving away a FREE piece of Plunder jewelry for every of 35.00 (excluding taxes and shipping) from April 06 until April 15th!!!Whoa, these shoes are bright!!! I told you gurls that I believed in being BOLD so I had to put my words into action. I actually love these bright red ankle booties by Bellini. I wanted to wear these boots so I used the red earrings and the bright red lipstick to help to bring the outfit all together. These boots have a higher rise to them than ankle boots and I love that look with the ankle jeans. Here is a different way that I wore the boots way back in 2016.
This is the same short-sleeved cardigan that I wore in yesterday’s post but I didn’t wear them back to back. That just happens to be the way that they hit the blog. The cardigan is several years old and I bought it at Old Navy. It isn’t on the website any longer but I did notice that they are having a huge sale right now so be sure to check that out. I love a good sale!!! I wanted to post this look to show you how you can use a short-sleeve cardigan with a shirt under it for a different look. This works out great on days that the weather is chilly and you want a little warmth.
Ladies, in 16 days I will be heading to Cancun Mexico! I am soooo excited but when I was at the beach this past weekend I couldn’t help and notice that I was the color of sliced bread. Lol! I am placing a bulk order for some Rodan + Fields foaming sunless tanner. This is a very subtle lotion so it is great if you are new to sunless tanners or if you miss a spot. This retails for 26.00 but everyone who messages me will get it for 25.00 or 2 for 48.00. I will ship it to you free of charge and with tax, it would be a total of 26.35 each or 2 for 50.55.
