I was so happy to hear from so many of you yesterday. I think that my blog post (here) resonated with a lot of you because we all have fears. I haven’t found a way to rid myself of fears completely, but I have found a way to manage them. I know that it is my body’s natural tendency to try to protect me from a stressful or dangerous situation and I need to ask myself, “what is it protecting me from?”If the worst thing that could happen is that I sit at a table by myself, then I can deal with that. If it is telling me not to follow a stranger back to their house, then I am going to listen to that. It is a matter of weighing the fear and deciding if it is a true “danger” situation versus a “stress” situation. When I started the blog, I didn’t tell anyone because I was afraid of what they might think. I was afraid that they might laugh at me when they found out, probably behind my back, and I am sure that some people did. However, when I think of all that I would have missed out on (meeting all of you), I am so glad that I didn’t listen to my fears. Is there anything that you are wanting to do but are letting fear keep you from trying? It is hard for me to believe that I used NEVER to wear the color red. Once I finally got up the nerve to try red, I have found that I love this color and that it looks good on me. Red is the color of love, passion, and desire. Red is also the color of fire and blood, but we will ignore that for the moment. Lol! This cowl-neck sweater is an old one that I bought from Ann Taylor several years ago. You don’t have to buy THIS sweater, but you do need to start looking for something in red because Valentine’s Day is coming soon and you will want to be prepared.
I love the Jewel earrings. You are probably getting tired of seeing me wear them so much here on the blog. Lol! I love the huge silver pearl, and then the crystals that surround it are very eye-catching. The Virginia necklace is not one that I wear very much. I can’t decide if I like the necklace or not. What are your honest thoughts? You won’t hurt my feelings if you hate it. Lol! The bracelets that I have on are the Ezra, (gray bling) the Becca, (large beads) the Maggie, (small silver beads) and the Essie. (black bling) I love wearing Plunder jewelry, and I wear it all the time even if I am not taking pictures for the blog. I did not start buying Plunder to sell it, I simply loved the jewelry, and the business came later. If you are interested in any of their jewelry, then go here and pick a party in my name. Try to ignore the mud that I got on my heels when I walked out in the yard to pick up a large flower that Emersyn had planted. It had blown over, and I picked it up and put it back on the porch. I didn’t even think about mud getting on my shoes until I looked at these photos. I guess it is hard to ignore something when “I” am pointing it out to you. Lol! My classic black pumps are by Coach, and I love the look. I wore these pumps with my jeans on my trip to San Francisco, and I wear them with dress pants and dresses. You can never go wrong with a classic pump.
A small print is too cute in a pair of pants. I think the rule of thumb is that the smaller your frame, the smaller print you should wear. If you are larger in stature, then you should wear larger prints. I wear them both so that must mean that some days I am feeling my petite side and some days I must be feeling a little more on the Plus side. Lol! I do think that there is some truth in that rule, but I also think that you should try on your item and see how it looks on you. This pair of pants is older, and it was from Cato Fashions. Here are some cute ones that I found online.
