One of the reasons that I started the blog was that I wanted to be able to work from anywhere. I used to love to watch an HGTV show called House Hunters. My daddy has been in the building business all of my life and I love watching any kind of show that has to do with houses. Yes, I especially like the shows that show remodeling an older or a fixer-upper. Anyway, when I would watch the show and they would ask everyone what they did for a living. The answer always seemed to be that they worked from their computer. I loved the concept but I had no idea exactly what that meant. I thought they worked for a company that didn’t require them to come into the office every day but that was not a possibility for me. So I started trying to think of ways to work on my computer and blogging was what I came up with. Anyone can start a blog, that is the easy part. The harder part is to acquire readers and followers but I had no idea that was hard. Sometimes ignorance is bliss because if I had known the odds were against me then I probably would have never even tried. Blogging opened the door for my other two businesses which are also worked on my computer. I would have never even considered a direct sales company before but those are actually much easier than blogging. Lol! This top doesn’t show as bright a color as it really is. This is a really bright green almost like grass. I bought this top a month ago at Old Navy but it doesn’t seem to be on the website any longer. I have noticed that a lot of off the shoulder tops this year that they have the larger elastic band or even an elastic ruffle. I really love the look that creates. You can see that I don’t have this pulled down for a true off the shoulder look so don’t feel like you HAVE to. There are a ton of shades of green so you can pick the one that speaks to you.
I wanted to add a pop of color in addition to the green top. I am not sure why I chose hot pink but that is just how I roll. Haha! The earrings were part of last months Posse set. The Posse is a monthly subscription service from Plunder that is a flat fee of 25.00 (including taxes and shipping) and you will receive between 1 – 3 pieces of jewelry each month. The bracelet is a new type of bracelet for Plunder. It has an adjustment method that is the thread pull. It will adjust from 6″ to 10″ so even a child can wear this. This bracelet is called Violet and it has multi-colored beads on a navy thread. Printed pants are all the rage this summer! I love printed pants even though Joe will sometimes tell me that I look like I am wearing curtains. Hahaha! You have to love a man that has a sense of humor and can dodge a frying pan. Lol! These pants are a pair that I actually bought at a street fair years ago. I loved the slinky material because they felt like pajamas. The colors in this pant are navy and white even though on my screen it looks like black and white. I don’t know if I am the only one but I have been known to not notice the difference until I was out in the sun. Lol!
I added a pattern and a pattern together. The scarf and the pants have the same color scheme going so they go together. I don’t do a huge amount of pattern mixing because I am not that skilled at this trend. I guess this goes under the “HIt or Miss” category. So, what do you gurls think?
