What is your go-to when you need to go somewhere fast but still look nice? I get up fairly early in the mornings but I do a ton of stuff on the computer before I even start to get ready to go to work. My goal is to go to work by 10:00 or 11:00 and work until 5:00 or 6:00. The other day I was answering emails and messages when I got a text from my son. I glanced at it and it said, “Emersyn is graduating Pre-K at 9:00 am. That meant that I was going to have to be ready to leave the house by 8:30 am. 😮It was 7:30 when he sent me this message. I quickly jumped in the shower to start the process. I don’t know about you but it takes me at least a good hour to get dressed when I have to wash and dry my hair. I made it to the auditorium about 3 minutes before they started walking out. I am telling you that it was so adorable seeing all of these little kids singing their songs. You could see them looking in the stands for their family and a big grin would break out on their faces when they spotted them. Emersyn kept pointing to us in the crowd and smiling broadly. Once they graduated and received their diploma they were also given a medal. When we met her to pick her up she was in tears because her medal had fallen off and all she had was the ribbon. Her teacher and I are friends so I told her what happened and she went back to her classroom and got her another medal. She was so proud and cute that I, of course, wanted a picture with her. She is my mini-me and we even matched our clothing. Lol! In case you were wondering, blue and gold are the school’s colors. Since the school’s colors are blue and gold I have a lot of accessories in those colors. I didn’t want to be fancy since it was a Pre-K graduation so I picked “fun” accessories. The Sydney hoop earrings have a hammered gold finish with navy blue fringe. These are wonderful for making a statement but they aren’t HUGE. They have a 3″ drop which strikes me at the bottom of my chin(s). Lol! You can’t get more playful than the Constance necklace. I love all the mixed media in this necklace. You have fabric, gold, and wood all making up this 37″ statement necklace. Finally, I added the Tasha elastic bead bracelet. Plunder actually has several bracelets in this style with lots of colors but I had to have the blue and gold one first. I do plan on getting the other colors because I think it will be cute to layer them. If you are interested in any items from Plunder just go to plunderdesign.com/taniastephens.I am loving my new cork platform sandals by Tommy Hilfiger. These are perfect for anything! I can wear them with pants, jeans, or shorts and dresses. I love when something is versatile and you get more bang for your buck. Or, if I was proper I would say, “it is a better return on your investment.” 😇 I do like the looks of these wedges over just a flat pair of sandals. You tell me which you like the best, here or here.
When you are in a hurry, choose a dress. There is no extra item to have to make sure that it goes together. There is no worry that the shirt fits but the pants are too tight and gives you a muffin top. There is no guesswork at all, it is “one and done.” I don’t want to hear that you don’t like your legs. I don’t edit my legs to make them look smooth and flawless because that is not real life. I have sun damage from my youth, I have veins that don’t look great, and my legs are chunkier than they were when I was in my 20’s. BUT, (notice the capitalization) they get me from point A to point B and I am ever so grateful for that. Why would you want to hide a part of your body that does so much for you? Throw on a smile and no one will even notice your legs, they will be too busy looking at your gorgeous smile. 😉 BTW, this ties into the giveaway that I am doing.

When I went to Livingston to visit my mom and watch my grandchildren play in some games, we got to talking about our favorite R+F products. She told me that her favorite product was the Active Hydration Serum. She said that she might skip doing her regimen (yes, I fussed at her and she knows better) but she won’t skip her Active Hydration Serum. You have heard me say that my skin is like the Sierra Desert but the funny thing is that my face and the back of my hands are not dry at all. I always use the AHS on them. When I took off my shirt and pants the other day and it looked like it was snowing I got mad. I got mad at me for not using the products that I knew would work on the rest of my body. I am not talking drenching myself, although I would like to, I am talking putting one drop on each forearm, two drops on the tops and bottoms of my legs, and one drop on my feet. This is my foot. I propped it up on the window seal in my bathroom and took the photo. Three days later I did the exact same thing. I used the AHS morning and night, except that I did not put any on the day that I took the second picture. Wow! What a huge difference. You can still see a tiny bit of dryness and flaking on the far right. I think I might have missed that spot. Just another example of these wonderful products that actually “WORK!”
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.
