Joe is back home and he is worn out. Lol! He had an absolute blast playing golf with his buddies. He called me Tuesday afternoon just thrilled with the round of golf that he had played. He said that he hadn’t played that good in probably 10 – 15 years. He was on cloud nine and was almost giddy. Of course, half of the fun after that round was in getting to rub it in on his friends. And then, it got even better on Wednesday……..When Joe called me Wednesday I could tell that he was outside talking. Normally, he will call me after they have dinner or sometime before he goes to bed. He sounded so excited. He got a Hole In One!!! The funny thing is, he has made 3 hole in ones in his life and 2 of them have been at Myrtle Beach when he was playing with this group of friends. I told him they must be his lucky golfing buddies. I am sure those poor buddies lived hard the rest of that night too. Lol! Men! They do love to brag when they do something and getting to have your buddies witness your accomplishment was just icing on the cake. Lol! I teased him that his head would have a hard time getting through the door when he got home. Hahaha! I really really liked this high/low knotted top by Halogen. EXCEPT, the low part was just too low for my taste. The top is 95% rayon so it has the slinky feel to it and felt so nice when I had it on. I think that the little knot in the front combined with the stripes makes this top very flattering on. The stripes bend to the center fooling your eye into thinking you look thin. I loved the effect but I just felt like I was Liberace or something and that I was wearing “tails.” I could just see me walking over to a piano and flipping out my tails to sit down. Lol! The top is so affordable that I almost kept this top (it was in my Trunk Club shipment) and took it to have the back cut off and hemmed. But, I was afraid that it would always “look” like it had been cut off and that I was just wasting my money. I really hated to send it back though. It also comes in a navy with a bold stripe and I am not sure that I don’t like that color even better. Which do you gurls like the best? Fringe is the newest trend and statement earrings are “the” jewelry to wear this year. The Paula silver hammered look pair of earrings from Plunder combines both trends in one look. These have a 3″ drop and I love where they fall on your neck, it is a very flattering placement. The marbled bracelet with the dark gray tassel was part of a Plunder Posse set but everyone liked it so much that they added a bracelet to this catalog that is almost identical, it is the Becca. Plunder has come out with a whole slew of the magnetic closure bling bracelets. I love all the different colors that they are offering and I need to get some of those ordered for you to look at. The ones that I have on today are the Ezra and the Chalon. I will be sending out the free Plunder jewelry to those who have made a purchase over 50.00 (excluding taxes and shipping) from the 1st of the month through the 15th. Then those who purchase from the 16th through the 31st will receive their free jewelry the first of June. That way I don’t get confused. Lol! My leather flip flops are Tory Burch. I wanted something easy to slip on but I really didn’t want the rubber flip-flops like I normally get. I wanted something that looked a little nicer so that I could wear them with a nice sundress and the look still seems polished yet casual. I wanted the gold color but they were sold out so the black was my 2nd choice. You know that I like to feel like I got a good deal on my things so I ordered these when they were having the bi-annual sale at Nordstroms. If you want higher priced items you need to watch for those sales.
On yesterday’s post, I had on watermelon colored pants from Old Navy and today, I am styling the black version. I wear a lot of Pixie Pants from Old Navy because they fit me well, they wash up well, and they are super affordable. I think that these are on sale for 29.00 right now. For that price, you can buy more than one and add a color to your wardrobe that you might not normally. The black version comes with a “never-fade” technology so that your pants will stay looking new for a long time. Joe told me that when he went out to dinner one night that there were these two ladies that looked around my age sitting at a table across from them. He said that they looked “put together” and that they looked like they took pride in their appearance. When he got up to leave, he went over and spoke to them. If he told that he had noticed them and that he thought they would love my blog. He also told them that since they obviously took care of themselves that they would love my skincare products. He must have seen the horror on my face because he quickly said, “I told them that I wasn’t telling them that because they looked like they needed the products but because that people who take pride in their appearance WANT the products.” I am going to have to start giving him some of my business cards. Lol!!! What do you think those women said as soon as he walked away from the table? Lol! I sure wish that I had been a fly on the wall. Hahaha!!!
