A CASUAL OUTFIT THAT LOOKS SHARP AS A TACK
Yesterday was Easter, and it was sure different for most of us than those in the past. But, it was a speedbump in the big scheme of things. I thought about putting on an “Easter dress” for the church service that I watched online, but in the end, I decided to opt for comfort instead since I was going to be cooking dinner later.
The Easter Bunny practiced social distancing since he left the grandchildren’s baskets in the middle of the night. I don’t think that bunnies can catch this virus, but he must have been extra cautious just in case. My daughter sent a cute joke to us on Snapchat, and I thought that I would tell it all of you to make you smile. Why didn’t the egg cross the road? Because he was a little chicken! ? Maybe you had to see her deliver the line in person. Lol! Kayla (my DIL) and I cooked dinner for us, which was egggcellent, and then Emersyn and I played 6,398,532 games of Go Fish. I feel like this Easter was different, but different doesn’t always mean bad. Look for the silver lining in the storm clouds that are circling overhead. ???
Shopping online has exploded since the virus has forced us not to shop in the malls and outlets. I know that it has been a learning curve for some of you who always went into a store, but I think that it might be a trend that is here to stay. It is so convenient to shop from your home, and a lot of stores are starting to offer free shipping and returns. Because of this surge of online shopping, I have noticed that items are selling out faster than ever before. I have been shopping “new arrivals” trying to ensure that the items will still be stock by the time that I can show them to you on the blog, but even that strategy isn’t working.
I ordered this top from Loft, and it just arrived on Thursday. It doesn’t even exist on the website anymore! All sizes have sold out!!! I agree that the top is cute, but dang…how did it sell out so fast? From now on, I am going to start showing you the items that I am ordering when I place the orders. That will give you a heads-up on what will be coming your way, and let you get your orders placed before everything sells out. Times are crazy, and things are changing quickly. Since I couldn’t link to this exact top, I did find some others that I thought you would like.
I am going to have to order me some more silver earrings. I seem to be wearing these Easton geometric hoops, or the Avi large hoops all of the time. You gurls are probably getting tired of seeing the same thing over and over again, but I do love these earrings. I am enjoying wearing gold or silver earrings. I am going through a phase where I want plain, basic, simple, and classic styles. My taste changes all of the time, and I have learned to just roll with the flow.
Okay, I think that I have found my new favorite pair of white jeans! These slim high-rise jeans were sent to me by Soft Surroundings, and this is the first pair of jeans that I have tried from them. I have to say that I am impressed! I love the high waist, deep pockets, comfortable stretch, and the fit is perfect. Plus, the thing that most of us care about when buying white jeans…you can’t see through them! These are soft and comfortable, and they don’t appear that they will “bag” as you wear them. I’ve worn them all day, and they are holding up nicely. I am wearing my usual size 10 that fits like a dream. BTW, these also come in petite, tall, and plus sizes so that everyone can enjoy these jeans. Here is the link.
I sure am getting a lot of wear from my $35.00 espadrilles. I wasn’t sure if I would like the bright red color on my feet, but it looks like I am not having an issue with that at all. A wedge espadrille is one of my favorite shoe styles, and this pair is very comfortable. I also ordered these in a bright green, but since I haven’t gotten them yet, I am wondering if they sold out before my order was placed. These fit true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9. Here is the link.
Because I know that some of you will not want to wear red on your feet, here is a different look. I added my Michael Kors ballet flats in white to the outfit to give you an idea of how wearing white would look. Fashion is a choice that you get to make for yourself. Wear what makes you feel good, not what someone else wears or likes.

Hi Tania, I’ve never posted before even though I’ve been following you for a while.
I just love today’s blog. About changing styles and wearing what makes me feel good!
And I love the fact that you link items you think we might like. I’m not sure my husband likes it so much… Because I have bought quite a few things from your blog. : )
Have a wonderful night! And thank you for blogging.
Lol! I have had many husbands not like me very much. LOL! Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love reading them even if I don’t get to reply to all of them.
This is a look I could wear all summer! Just changes colors of shoes and tops, I love the lighter look of spring and summer. Winter colors get so dreary. I hate to admit it but I do slip into flip flops style shoes on ocassion but don’t wear them out. They make some cute ones. I have a red and white polka dot pair.
Drat! So wanted that shirt, I saw it last week. They’ve been deluging me in emails with sales. I did find one shirt I wanted in the $15 category. There were tons I wanted but Medium was sold out on every stinkin one I wanted. I have those same flats — I bought some Sheec’s because I found them uncomfortable and now they are great with white pants. I just decided to buy a pair in black to go with my black pants. I don’t recommend black chino type pants if you have a cat. Even if it is black lol.
I really love this outfit and it looks great on you. So light and summery. I’m disappointed that the top is no longer available. I would have loved to buy it . I see that Sue said it was still available and I checked but could not find it
I just found it. Last night I typed in Chevron, cap, and striped, and it wouldn’t come up> Oh, well. Here is the link:
Sooo spring and vibrant looking! Love it.
Tania, I am blown away! I bought that same top a few weeks ago and received it within a week. I love, love it! Same color, too! Great minds…..Your Easter sounds fabulous and I am so happy you had a great time! You look fantastic as usual.
Thanks for the cute look! Just to let you know, the red top you have on is still for sale at Loft. I had just put it in my cart this morning. Most sizes available except small, and a navy version also. After seeing the red on you I switched from blue. I always lean towards navy, black or gray and need something different my closet!
I couldn’t find it last night, maybe I was too sleepy to think straight.
Tania, you look so cute! Have a great day!
Thanks, Mary! It is such a comfortable outfit!
I also love wedged espadrilles! They are my favorite Summer shoes!
Those are some of my favorites!
You look great Tania!! Thanks for sharing about the pants!! I will be ordering those, for sure!!?❤️
I love following your blog….you definitely have my kind of style and faith! I was looking at the white tunic shirt from Loft and read that it shrinks , just wondering if you had that problem? If not I would like to order it.
I will try to throw it into the washing and let you know.
Those pants are great, Anne! You will love them.
