Happy Friday! My days are still all messed up because of the holiday on Monday. I was working on my blog post, and it hit me that today was Friday with Friends. I had to scrap what I had written and start all over from scratch. Lol! Today I am linking to a blogger that I have worked with before on a different collaboration way back in 2016 (here.) She is a Dutch blogger, and I love how we can have friends all over the world because of the internet. Greetje has a husband, a dog, and a boat. I am not sure what order of importance she puts those. Lol! She has excellent taste and a beautiful style. She doesn’t do very many collaborations, so we are honored to have her with us today. Be aware that she only posts on Sunday, so the latest post will be from the 26th. I love the name of her blog, “no fear of fashion” and here is where you can check it out.
Do you ever want peace and quiet? I love having lots of people around me most of the time, but there are times when I want to sit in the quiet and not have any noise at all. Even though only Joe and I are the only ones in my home, Joe loves to watch videos on his computer. I can tell you anything that you want to know about golf swings, motorcycles, take off and landings of planes, and some show called Yellowstone. Lol! Joe and I are not in the same room, but we are only about 15 feet apart from each other. So, when I have my business calls or ZOOM meetings, he wants me to close the door between us because he doesn’t want to listen to me. However, when I am trying to write my blog, the door stays open. You talk about making it hard to concentrate; it is a wonder that my posts make any sense at all. Haha! Wait! Do they make sense? Lol!
Yesterday, after I went to my doctor’s appointment, I stopped by the mall. My doctor is a 2-hour drive for me, so I will make it a day and go shopping while I am out and about. I headed to the Loft and scored several nice clothing items. I didn’t try anything on at the store (big surprise), so I still have my fingers crossed that everything will fit. They have a good sale going right now, so be sure to check out their sale. I found this floral cardigan in the store, but I don’t see it on the website. I bought a large in this sweater, but I should have bought the medium. It is too far off to drive back and exchange the sweater, so I think that I’ll just put it in the washer and dryer and see if it shrinks some.
I thought the colors in the Juniper necklace just matched the green in the sweater. I love the iridescent beads and the lariat style with the gold disc dangles. Since the necklace had iridescent beads, I added two bracelets with the same vibe. I took one bracelet from the Rachel set, and one from the Stacia set. I love mixing and matching these two sets. Of course, these two sets are sold out at this time, but keep checking back because they will be restocked soon. To finish my look, I added the large gold hoop earrings called Dallin. These earrings have a textured design and are a 2.5″ drop.
Goodness, this is irritating. I love these white vinyl flip flops that I bought at the Loft. They had a gold rim around the bottom of the sole, and they fit true to size. But, these shoes are NOT on the website either. I know this happens when you shop at outlet stores, but this was not an outlet, it was their normal store. Rant over… UPDATE* The shoes have been located in the Loft outlet. Here is the link.
I can’t believe it; these shorts are actually on the website!!! I never thought that I would be so thrilled to find a pair of olive Bermuda shorts. Lol! Great news of us over 40 ladies, the Bermuda style short is very popular right now. Woohoo! This is the 10″ style with a cuff, but they also some sans the cuff if that is your preference. I bought my normal size, and they fit great this morning; however, they got gotten bigger as the day went on. These photos were taken after I worked at the lumber company all day long, so I look a tad rumpled. You might want to consider sizing down a size. These are 97% cotton, so I doubt if they will shrink much in the laundry. Here is the link to the shorts.
Tonight I am once again stepping out of my comfort zone. I am co-hosting a ZOOM training call for a large group of ladies. I might be a little nervous, but honestly, three years ago I would have been hyperventilating. I can’t thank R+F enough for helping me to grow as a person, as well as have great looking skin. Hahaha! Wish me luck!!!
Also, be sure to hop on over (here) and say hello to Greetje for me.
