I am so thankful to all of you for the many prayers and messages that you sent me the past couple of days. I feel kind of silly now, it was only a stiff neck and a sore throat. There are lots of people who are in way worse condition on a daily basis, so forgive me for whining just a little. I have on my big gurl panties now, so let’s get this party started. Lol!
I missed a couple days of work, so I played catch-up all day on Friday. I think everyone there was saying prayers for me also, because Friday was payday. Guess who does the payroll? Hahaha Yep, I felt those get well quickly vibes coming my way all day Thursday. They must have worked, because I woke up on Friday and felt much, much better. I even forgot that my neck was sore till Joe asked me something, and I started shaking my head no. That was a mistake!!! Lol!My dress is really, really old. I have no idea even where I bought it, and I don’t ever remember wearing it before. Did someone leave a dress at my house? Too bad, it is mine now. I love the small check print, and who doesn’t love black and white? CLASSIC! This dress is a tank style, so I added a little warmth with my bright yellow cardigan.
Yellow Cardigan: Mustard | Similar | SimilarBoth of my necklaces are new. The short one is called the Isabelle, and the long one is the Blanche. The Isabelle has several charms that hang from a vintage key, and also a piece of lace tied to the chain. The Blanche has a little metal heart attached to the pendant that says Bless Your Heart. Did you read my post about what us southern girls mean by “Bless Your Heart?”Here is a better look at the pendant. It is hard to take a picture without the camera glare. Sorry! I have forgotten to tell everyone HOW to order Plunder from me, and several of you have messaged that you purchased something, but didn’t think I got the credit. If you have ordered anything this month, send me a quick message to let me know. [email protected]My bracelet is also new, it is called the Brenda. The saying is, “With brave wings she flies.” If you wish to purchase anything from Plunder, I would appreciate it if you went to my website. You have to type in http://www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens or you can enter my stylist number in the “box” when you go to checkout. #241007 Also, there will be a spot where you can pick a party, please pick Tania’s Party. I am blown at how nice you gurls are. You could buy Plunder from another stylist, but you choose to buy from me. That is unbelievable!!! I have decided to not be like the cell phone companies, they only give rewards to “new” customers. I think the customers who have been loyal and stick with you also need rewarding. So, I am going to be giving away a necklace this month to two of my customers. I just want to randomly say thank you.I had to “punch” it up just a little with this hot pink tote by Vera Bradley. This tote is going to be perfect in October. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I will carry this most of the month. I usually put pink in my hair, (see here) but I don’t know if I am going to do that this year. What do you gurls think?

This is a super easy way to transition a summer outfit into fall. If the weather was a little cooler, (today it was in the high 80’s) I would have put on closed-toed shoes or booties, but instead I liked the laid back look of the sandals. I don’t feel like wearing high heels EVERY day, so this was a nice change.
Black Sandals: Similar | Similar | SimilarI wanted to show you how buttoning one button on the cardigan changed the look of the outfit. It looks more business like, or it would have had I put on a pair of dressier shoes. Little details like that are how you can take a work outfit, and make it a casual outfit.
