Happy Saturday, gurls! This week has flown by and it is hard to believe how much fun I ended up having. Living your life doing things you love with those you love is amazing. Of course, eating and paying your bills is amazing also, so I guess it is time for me to head back to good ole Virginia. I think Joe and Lucy have missed me just a little bit but I have missed them terribly. Talk about an adventure, I can’t wait to tell you all about it on Monday. Instead, today I will tell you about a little experience that I went to on Wednesday. I went and got a spray tan the other day. You should be able to see the difference when I take get back home and start taking pictures again. It was one of those machines where you stand inside and then do four different poses and the machine moves up and down spraying you all over. I hadn’t done a spray tan in about 15 years. Lol! I was surprised that things haven’t changed very much in that span of time. I love the look of a tan but my skin does not get that pretty golden brown color when I get a real tan or even when I use tanners. This, however, looks really nice and natural. I may have to start making the hour-long drive that I would have to do in order to get a spray tan (in a machine) near me. All we have in town are people who will use a spray gun and spray you. NO WAY that I am going to do that! I did it once with my hairdresser who I know and love but it was still a humiliating experience. NEVER again!!! Lol 😱Blue is my favorite color. Just sing this to the tune of the Aerosmith song, “Pink is my favorite color” and you will experience how I feel about blue. I especially like this bright turquoise shade of blue because it not only looks good with my eyes but it elevates my mood. It is what I would call a happy color. Hey, if Bob Ross can call them happy little trees then I can call colors happy also. I love adding a cardigan to an outfit for lots of reasons. 1. They add dimension to your outfit. 2. They cover your arms if you are not willing to share that part of your anatomy. 3. They provide a small amount of warmth for chilly offices, restaurants, or nights. 4. They trick the eye into thinking you look thinner. Really, do I need to say anything more? I could have added peach, purple, white, or black accessories but I decided to stay in the blue family. Let me tell you about the Susan bracelet first. It is 7 strands of light blue beads on an elastic band and attached to a 7 strand rhinestone centerpiece. This is 7″ and it is snug to put on. There is not a lot of giving in this bracelet so if your arm is over 7 inches then I wouldn’t recommend it. The dainty Quinn necklace is strung on a black cord that has black and white beads and then has a marbled turquoise stone drop. I have really become fond of this necklace because of its length, it fits nicely in the void that is left by v-necks and rounded neck tops. Even though I never take off my wedding band or my black opal 10-year wedding anniversary ring I still like to add a ring on my pointer finger. I ordered a size 9 which is plenty big and I could have worn a size smaller. The ring that I have on today is the Verna which features a very pale blue large stone. Now for the dress! This is a dress by Maggie London and it is ultra feminine. It is a chiffon sheath dress so it is flowy which adds to the romance. It is lined thought so you don’t have to worry about it being see-through. Then there are the swoon-worthy ruffles which coordinate with the large flowery print border. It is 100% polyester meaning that it is machine washable which is always a plus. This is such a cute summery outfit for any occasion. I added the belt but it does have an elastic waist. The dress was part of my recent Trunk Club shipment ad if you are interested in having a personal shopper then here is the link. Speaking of a personal stylist……I am thinking about offering a similar service as Trunk Club. For a flat fee (yet to be determined) I would send you my recommendations (and links to the items) based on a profile that you would fill out. While I can’t physically go shopping with you each month, I could go shopping FOR you monthly. Comment if you have any interest at all so I can see if it is anything worth pursuing.
