Today was a much better day for my cold. I am so glad that I have some energy and that I am no staying asleep on the couch all day long. Getting a shower, putting on some makeup, and finally getting out of my pajamas were the highlights for the day. In case there is anyone under 40 reading this, I will just tell you now……when you cough or sneeze, you run the risk of peeing on yourself. 😱 You just need to learn the stop, cross your legs, and wait method. Lol! Am I lying gurls??? I wanted to share some BIG news that is happening today in the Stephens household. Today my baby, my youngest child, turns 29. Yep, my baby boy who just happens to be 6’4″ tall is having a birthday today!!! Woot Woot! That is part of my fantastic news and then the other part is……today my baby girl leaves Juneau heading home for the winter!!! I am thrilled for her to finally be home since she has been gone since at least 2009, maybe even longer. She asked me on the phone last night if I had talked to one of her friends. I told her no and asked why. She said that they knew that she was leaving Juneau today and thought I might have told them. When I mentioned that I might have told you “gurls” she said, WHAT??? You gave out all the details, etc. Lol!! Actually, I don’t think that I did tell everything but she knows me well enough to know that I might have. Hahaha! Let me put it to you this way; if you don’t want me to tell everyone something, then you have to say that it is a secret. Otherwise, it is free game. LOL! Treat me like you would a reporter…..”this is off the record.”
I have been wanting to wear this color scheme for a while. I love the dark olive pants and the old gold tank top together. This old gold color tank top is one that I have had for a while and it is always a favorite top for me in the fall season. I guess that it reminds me of the leaves after they turn colors. For those who might not be able to wear the brighter yellows, this color could work instead.
I added the Daniella gold fringe earrings to the look. I had been wanting a pair of gold/mustard earrings so I was very happy when these came out in the catalog. Since I was adding a few gold/mustard accessories, I added the Dalls ring. I love the ring! It is heavy and a perfect fit. My large gold metal cuff is called the Muriel. It has removable links and will fit up to an 8.25 wrist. I left the best for last. I love the Italy necklace! I call this the Ivory necklace all the time and then I wonder why I can’t find it in the catalog. Lol! This and the Bronte are my two favorite necklaces right now. Of course, they are huge and very showy. What does that say about me? Lol! Just go to my website (here) and pick a party with my name in it. I have been on the lookout for a pair of dark olive colored jeans. I have become a HUGE fan of NYDJ jeans, so I couldn’t resist these that came in my Trunk Club shipment last month. I have been waiting to show them on the blog until the weather got a little cooler and it has finally cooperated. I even saw frost this morning on my patio! The best part about these Marilyn twill jeans in the Sugar Pine color is….they are on sale!!! I am a sucker for a good sale. Lol! Go here to find them. This cardigan is old. I wanted to say that really fast since I know a lot of you are going to be mad at me because you can’t buy it. I am sorry, I bought this last year at a local boutique and I love it even though I don’t wear it that often. Because it is so noticeable people will remember it when I wear it. That is the downside of having a statement item. Here are a couple of suggestions instead.
I sure am glad to be feeling better. Thanks for all of the kind thoughts and prayers that were sent my way! If Joe gets me sick again this year, you may need to be sending prayers his way because I am going to “jack his jaws.” Lol!
