Don’t you wish life was all rainbows and unicorns? With all of the rain that we have been getting (rain every day until Friday), I should have a ton of gold by now. All I would have to do is follow the rainbows with my shovel. The unicorns seem to be a little more elusive and so far I have never found one nor have I found any rainbow-colored droppings. Joe, who has a unique way with words, always says, “in ten years this will all be funny.”I can only assume that he is trying to tell me to “get over it.” There are always going to be disappointments in life. That might go along with the saying that there are 2 things you can’t avoid in life, taxes and death. However, I have found that the faster that you can pick yourself up by the bootstraps and shake yourself off, the better you are. I am talking small disappointments and not the life-altering kind. Those kinds of disappointments take a lot of time and recovery. I am talking about the fact that the store is out of your favorite brand of coffee, or that your television is on the fritz on the night that you want to watch Grey’s Anatomy, or maybe someone you thought was your friend has been saying things behind your back. Just start belting out Taylor Swift at the top of your lungs and “Shake it off!”Welcome to day 2 of the printed shirt series. I guess it would be kind of monotonous for me to talk about this top again since I told you all about it in yesterday’s post. Today I am going more casual in the styling of the top. This is a great look for any outing that you might have to quickly go to. Run to the store, no problem. Need to go to the cleaners or post office, no problem. I love that this style top is dressy but that it looks equally good with a pair of jeans. For all of you ladies who have hot flashes and can’t stand the thoughts of having something on your arms, here is your look.
Gold jewelry is what I am going with today. I love these incredibly lightweight Ciara earrings. They are very thin metal that has a scroll cutout design and a 3.5″ drop. I wear these earrings with everything! The necklace, however, is a new purchase and I think that this is the first time that I have worn it. This Yvonne necklace is a gold hoop with turquoise and white beads all on a peach 36″ braided chain. This reminds me of Indian style jewelry for some reason. I love my Plunder jewelry because it is affordable and I can get all the latest trends without spending a fortune. Go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens to make a purchase and please pick a party with my name in it. In the summer you will find me in sandals the biggest part of the time. This older than dirt pair of t-strap sandals are by Tommy Hilfiger. I love a t-strap sandal but I know that some of my friends cannot adjust to having something between their toes. At the beginning of the summer season I usually have a 2 or 3-day adjustment phase and then after that, I am all set.
Here is a different way to wear the raw hem trend. I think that I might like wearing this trend with a turned up cuff even better than I do wearing it down. I have had long legs forever so ankle pants are still hard for me to adjust to. As a child, it was a struggle to find pants that were long enough. And then my daughter came along and had even longer legs than me. She needs an inseam of 35-37 and I can get by with 32-34 inseams. Next time you see a pretty woman with those long gazelle legs just think smugly to yourself, “I bet she has a hard time getting her pants long enough.” Lol!!!
There was something about this photo that completely freaked me out. I had to go back to my photo album and enlarge it as big as I could to take a look. Do you see the “thing” on my foot that looks like a HUGE spider? I am telling you that I hate spiders with every fiber of my being and just seeing this almost put me into a panic. It is the buckle and the extra material of the strap sticking out. Lol! I swear I still can’t take my eyes off of it even now.
