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.
How is your memory???
