Joe and I have a houseguest this weekend. This is the first time that I have met him and Joe hasn’t seen him in over 30+ years. Isn’t it amazing how it can be so long since you’ve seen someone and the conversation flows just like you saw them last week? They have laughed and joked so much that I think Joe has talked him into staying a few more days. Lol! Here was the part that worried me…I don’t cook very much anymore and I was afraid that my meals might not have been edible.
Last night I fixed baby back ribs, old-fashioned cole slaw, and a bread that is covered with garlic salt and parmesan cheese. That went fairly good but then the breakfast was a different story. I have been on a diet for so long and all I ever get to eat is a fried egg and oatmeal with blueberries. For some reason, I am not sure why, but Joe did not want to serve this to his friend this morning. Lol! Instead, I fixed huevos rancheros or my version of that. Basically, it was a tortilla wrap with eggs, cheese, and salsa. He is staying for another night so the food must not have been too bad. Let me just say this, I won’t be coming out with a recipe book any time soon. I am a sucker for polka dots and this top is truly adorable. I love the cobalt blue and the dark navy blue against the white background. This is a sleeveless top with a v-neckline but it is the waterfall pleats in the back that makes it really nice. This top is by NYDJ and I got it in my last Trunk Club shipment. This is 100% polyester and it is machine washable so it is my kind of top. I only added the Chantilly necklace and the Dari earrings with this look. There are times when I think that less is more. I only have two pieces of jewelry on but both of them are special. I love the teardrop pearls on this set and especially the “bunch” on the necklace. If you haven’t already taken advantage of the SALES section on Plunder, be sure to go HERE now.

These jeans are so comfortable that I find myself wanting to wear them daily. The instructions say that you need to dry clean them but I can tell you that I am NOT going to do that. I washed them and they seem to be fine. They have the curve-hugging fit technology and they are so very flattering on. I didn’t think that I would like the light color but I am really liking them. Did you notice the difference in the shoes? I wanted to show you how the outfit looks so different by just changing the shoes. I prefer the brown shoes over the navy shoes because I think the brown shoes elongate my legs. When I wear the navy I feel like it chops my legs. Let me know what you think, brown or navy? Now, let me tell you about this navy cardigan. It is a blend of silk, cotton, and cashmere and it is very soft. The scallops on the 3/4 sleeves and the edges are so cute and it adds a hint of whimsy. This cardigan is by Kate Spade and this one does have to be dry cleaned. I hope you enjoyed this outfit. It is a nice outfit but it is not a fancy outfit. This is the kind of look that I like, casual but put together.
