If anyone local to me is reading my blog today, you have to swear that you won’t breathe a word of this blog to Joe. I am about to let you in on what I have in store for Joe for this coming Father’s Day, and I want it to be a surprise. It is kind of funny to say that I want something to be a surprise as I get ready to post it online for the ENTIRE world to see. Lol! The truth is, I feel like we are all friends, and I know that I can trust you to keep my secret.
Do any of you remember the Southern Comfort commercial that featured a gentleman in his 40’s-50’s walking down the beach in a speedo? It has been a running joke between Joe and me that I am going to buy him a speedo for him to wear. A couple of years ago, I found a regular pair of swimming trunks that were the speedo brand, so I bought them for him for Father’s Day. He loves those trunks and took them to Los Cabo with us, but they weren’t the type in the commercial. Well, this year I ordered him a black pair in the same style as in the commercial. I can’t wait to see his face when he opens his Father’s Day gift. Don’t worry, I got him some other things too, but I promise that the swimsuit will be the biggest hit. Lol! No…you won’t see any pictures. Hahaha!
Did anyone spit out their coffee yet? I promise to be good for the rest of the post. Lol! Today I am wearing a beautiful bright orchid cardigan that I bought from J. Crew years ago. I love this cardigan, and I hate so bad that it isn’t on the website any longer. I love adding a bright color when I am wearing black and white. I think the bright color makes the whole outfit POP. The white tank that I have on is from Chico’s Off The Rack. This is one that was gifted to me by Chico’s, but I just ordered four more tanks yesterday. They are having a big sale on their tanks, and I can wear a tank year around. Everyone needs these essential items.
I decided to do a small amount of pattern mixing today with my earrings. The black and white striped earrings go nicely with the striped zebra skirt. Same colors, but a different pattern, and that works well for an outfit. These earrings are no longer available, but the Adaline and the Dana would both work just as well. The beautiful cross necklace that I have on is probably 5 or more years old. I bought it at my local Cato Fashions, and it has been a favorite of mine ever since. I love the pearls and the bling from the rhinestones on this necklace. I have looked for years for another necklace that is half as pretty, but so far I haven’t located even one. Sorry. 🙁
This skirt!!! Oh my, I am in love with this skirt! This is my way of taking a stroll on the wild side. Haha! The zebra pattern is supposed to be big this year, but animal print, in general, is almost always in style. This skirt is so full and flowy, and I feel like I need to start twirling round and round. I guess that is the reason that they call this a swing skirt. Lol! It has a pull on waist and is made from 100% polyester, so it is machine washable. The belt is one that I already owned, but I thought it made the look. Here is the link to the skirt, and it is only 21.99. If you would like the plus size, then click here.
Can you believe that Joe agreed to have a photo made together? It might be the last one that he takes with me when he gets his present. Lol!
I put a post on Facebook yesterday, asking people to tell me what were their favorite R+F products. I think that Lash Boost might have been the winner. Any guesses why??? Lol! If you are interested in lash boost, then message me at email@example.com and you can be on your way to having longer looking lashes, just like me.
