It is very early in the morning as I sit down to write today’s post. I don’t normally start my blog post until around 7 or 8 at night but I have something that I want to go to this afternoon so I am trying to get my creative juices flowing. I haven’t had coffee or breakfast yet so you might guess how that process is working. I keep finding myself doing the FaceBook scroll while I am waiting on a picture to load or a comment to finally process. There is nothing wrong with scrolling FaceBook except when you have things that need to get done. Then it can seem like you have only been on there for 15 minutes and it has really been over an hour. Lol!!! Tonight I am going to watch Emersyn play in a basketball game. She is in kindergarten so you might be able to imagine how good they are going to be. Hahaha! She had a game last night that I didn’t get to go to and when I talked to her mom I found out that she got hit in the head with the ball. She came out of the game crying and since there was only a minute left in the game she never went back in. I am wondering if she will shake off that experience or if it will make her shy and skittish tonight. Either way, I will have a blast getting to cheer her on. She is playing for the same team, the Vansant Vikings, that her daddy played for when he was young. I still had one of his old practice outfits so I took it over to their house last week. She thought that was so cool. I don’t think that she can “see” her daddy ever being young or small since he is now 6’4″ tall. Lol! Here is her picture from the other night. Don’t let that sweet, innocent look fool you. Lol!!! I had looked at a t-shirt like this online one day but for some reason, I ended up not ordering it. Then, last week, I went to a local boutique and the owner had the t-shirt on. I told her that I loved the shirt and that I had wanted one but just never got around to ordering it. She just smiled and said that “she” just happened to have the shirt in her store. Woohoo!!! The only problem was that she only had larges left in stock but I just had to have the shirt so I bought it. It is a little big so I did the knot side tie to help with the extra volume. Remember that little trick because it makes a t-shirt look more fitted and gets rid of the tail that hangs and looks baggy. I am not sure if she has any more in stock but you can message her and see. I also found several similar shirts on Etsy so you can check those out by going here. Are these Aryah earring to much for you? They are only a 3.25″ drop but they seem even bigger. I love the gold circles and the white drops that dangle and give movement to the earrings. But, I realize that for some of you this look might be bigger than you are willing to wear. But, there is NO reason that you couldn’t wear the Becca and the Rochelle bracelet. The Becca has large marbleized beads on an elastic cord and a gray leather tassel and the Rochelle is a leopard print gold cuff. Be sure to watch for my video on Friday when I show you all the new fall items that I have gotten in so far. Don’t forget about this month’s giveaway since this is the last week to take advantage of it. I have been celebrating my 3 year blog anniversary by offering a free piece of jewelry with every 50.00 purchase (excluding taxes and shipping) for this entire month! Go here and have fun shopping! Make sure that you pick a party with my name in it so that I can track the purchases. These faded looking jeans with the patched knees are a couple of years old and they were purchased at Old Navy. When I first bought them I wasn’t sure that I liked the look of the patched knee but they have grown on me over the years. I have plenty of black pixie pants but I don’t have many black jeans. I think everyone could use a good pair of black jeans because they look fabulous with a plain white t-shirt and maybe even a denim jacket. I do like the look of the faded black instead of the DARK black jean. Maybe it has been the influence of the raw-hem and distressed jean trend that has me liking that look.
My two-tone espadrilles were a hand-me-down that became a hand-me-up. My sister had a friend whose mother bought her these shoes. She loved the shoes but couldn’t wear them so she gave them to my sister who couldn’t wear them either. Yep, you guessed it, my sister gave them to me!!! I was super excited to have these given to me because there is no way that I would have ever bought them for myself. The look is cute but the price tag was ridiculous. If you want the real thing then go here but if you want the look without the price tag then shop below.
It appears that we were pretty much ALL in agreement that the top that I wore yesterday needed to go back to the store. It looked cute in the store but not so much on me. Lol! I also think that we can all agree that Rodan + Fields products really do work, whether they are a magical potion or snake oil. Lol!!!
