I want to start by saying that my heart goes out to all of the families affected by the tornadoes that hit Tennessee. I am originally from Tennessee, and most of my family still lives there. In fact, Livingston, my hometown, is about a 15-20 minute drive to Cookeville. My son that lives in Tennessee is only about 5 minutes from Cookeville, so I was thrilled to hear from them this morning. Seeing the devastation on the news outlets was just heartbreaking.
How many of you ladies only have cell phones? I know that Joe and I got rid of our landline about a year or so ago. We got tired of getting all of the telemarketer’s calls, and we finally had it disconnected. Here is the biggest problem with only having a cell phone; I tried calling my mother and my son this morning, but I couldn’t get a phone call through. I tried again about an hour later, and I still didn’t have any luck. Finally, I called my brother, who lives in the same area, and he told me that the cell phone tower in Cookeville had been destroyed. I was able to text them over wifi, which made me feel much better. My parents still have a landline, but since so many power lines were down, it didn’t work either. It sure makes you feel vulnerable when you can’t get ahold of loved ones. Please say a prayer for the area.
If this post doesn’t make you get in the mood for Spring, then something is wrong with you. Lol! Green is not a color that I like, except Kelly green. I LOVE this bright Kelly green color, and I couldn’t wait to show all of you this gorgeous cardigan. I bought several green items that I’ll show you later in a St. Patricks Day post, but I “had” to wear this today.
The cardigan comes in several different colors if green is not a color that you like. This is a cotton cardigan, and it is machine washable. I am wearing a size medium, and I think that it fits great. Here is the link to the cardigan.
I added a few silver pieces of jewelry to my outfit. I wanted to keep it simple, so I added the Easton earrings and the Myles Bangle Bracelet from Kendra Scott. The rhinestone circle necklace is one that I wear all of the time. It was a vintage find on Etsy, and here are some that are similar. Be sure to read the description before you purchase and also email them if you have any questions.
Don’t I look ten feet tall in these jeans? Honestly, they seem to go on forever!!! These high-waisted jeans are so soft that they feel like I have owned them for ten years. They are a retro style, but you would think that they have been worn since then because of the faded color and softness. These jeans have a lot of stretch in them, so they fit nicely. I am wearing my usual size 10, and I love the way they fit.
HOWEVER, these are very long with a 33 1/2″ inseam. I like long jeans because I love wearing high heels with mine, but I would suggest that most of you think about getting the short version. My mother bought these when I posted about them here, and she bought the short version and loved the jeans. You don’t know how hard my mother is to please when it comes to clothing. LOL! Here is the link to the jeans.
I have on a white microfiber tank/shell under the cardigan. This is from Chicos, and it fits like a glove. I am wearing a size 1, which is fine for wearing under something. However, if I wanted to wear this tank by itself, then I would size up to a size 2 for a little more room. Here is the link to the top.
How is your memory???
