Did you see my post yesterday? Here is the link if not, but I got a huge laugh, and I wanted to share what happened. I read Joe the first paragraph, the one about me joining the Circus. He laughed, and then told me that I DID join the Circus when I married him, and that I was now part of the show. LOL!!! ?
Yesterday, my DIL and I went to take a few location photos for some upcoming looks. It is finally summer, and going outside for photos is a little easier. It is always tricky though, you still have to contend with the sun being too bright, it being so hot that you start to melt, or the summer rains showers hit just as you are getting ready to take your photos.
I had thought that yesterday was going to be a great day for pictures since it was supposed to be cooler than normal and have overcast skies. My son was also on the early shift, so we had a babysitter for the kids which makes it much easier to concentrate on photos. Just as we pulled up to the location, it started to sprinkle. And, then, the sprinkles turned into showers.
I also tried changing clothes in the vehicle for the first time. My DIL has a mini-van, which did make it easier, but it is still no walk in the park. It was downright hilarious! Half of the time I was on my knees, sometimes I was on my back, and once I even had to hop out of the van before I could pull up my pants. So, if you see photos next week, and my hair looks somewhat droopy and I look like I’ve been in a wrestling match, at least now you will know why. Lol!
When I was trying to decide what color to wear with this top, it was incredibly hard. I kept finding so many things that would look good with the top, that I finally decided to take multiple photos.
If you ever see a blogger who has pulled out all of her hair, I bet that I know why. I bought this ruffled cami with the intention of using it to style a different take on wearing red, white, and blue. When the cami arrived, I thought that it would look so nice with so many things, that I decided to take photos with different colored cardigans to give you an idea on how to change the look of an outfit by using color. Then I edited the photos and uploaded them to the blog. Once I got ready to link to the cami, it is nowhere to be found on the website…gone…vanished! UGH!!!! So frustrating! At least the store does have several other cami’s that are just as cute, so I have them linked below. And, for size reference, I am wearing a medium and it fits me great.
The jewelry is the same in all of the photos. I just got this beautiful link necklace the other day, and it looks so elegant and expensive, that I wish that I had ordered it sooner. I will admit, the Beckett (here) necklace costs more than I normally spend on a necklace, but I justified it with the fact that it is something that I will be able to wear for years. I can at least save you 20% off your entire order (if this is your first time making a purchase with Kendra Scott) by giving you this link. (here) I added the matching Beckett bracelet (here), the Amiya gold cuff bracelets with a pearl (here), and the adjustable LOVE bracelet from Lilly Pulitzer (here). My earrings (here) match the Amiya bracelet, and my necklace (here) from The Styled Collection, matches the LOVE bracelet.
I am wearing the same white pants in all of the photos. This is a pair the I recently bought from Chicos, and it is the No Stain White Jeggings! I LOVE these pants! They are pull-on, they fit great and have just the right amount of stretch and don’t leave knee puckers, and they are on sale for 40% off when you use the code 29238 at checkout. I am 5’6″ tall and weigh between 155-160 at any given time, and I am wearing a .5 size in these. Chicos has a different sizing chart, and even though I am normally a size 10 from other websites, I find that I need to size down in Chico’s pants. HERE is the link to these pants. Also, here are some other items in the No Stain family that you might like.
I love these cork strappy heels, and so did everyone else. Lol! These were bought last year, and they are completely sold out on the website. However, because I think that this cork color is absolutely the best neutral that I’ve found, I am going to link to several other pairs in different price ranges and heel height. I hope that you can find a pair that you like. I am wearing a size 9 in mine.
I wanted to show you how long this cami was, and how it showed from under the cardigan from the back view. This doesn’t bother me, but I know that it irritates some people. So, below, you will see how I fix the issue.
You have all seen the front half-tuck, well, this is the rear half-tuck. I tuck the back of the cami into my waist, but I pull out enough of the sides so that it doesn’t look short in the front. What do you think?
It seems like everything that I am wearing today is old, or sold out. This light turquoise cardigan is an old one from Maurices, and it no longer exists. But, that is not stopping me from finding you similar cardigans so that you could get the same look.
An all-white outfit is so classy. Normally, I’ll do a column of white, and then add a colorful cardigan or blazer. But, today, I decided to put the color on the inside, and keep the all-white confined to the outside for a slightly different look. You will have to let me know how you like the outside white look. I think that everyone should have a nice white cardigan for spring and summer. It will match anything, and it serves the purpose of keeping you warm, hiding your bra straps, and not showing arm flab. Lol! Maybe that was just my list of purposes for the cardigan. Haha! This sweater is from Talbots and it is on sale for only $24.50. I am wearing a medium and I think it fits me great. HERE is the link for the white cardigan, and it comes in a LOT of different colors.
I know that you are going to find this hard to believe, but my short sleeve cardigan is an old one, and it is not on the website. I laughed as I was typing that because it is so absurd. This is one from Joan Rivers that I bought YEARS ago, and I still pull it out because of the short sleeves. I did find a couple that is similar, check them out below.
So, which look did you prefer? I am having a hard time picking one over the other. I love the bright color of the light turquoise because it is different. The white is so classy looking, and I love wearing white in the summer. But, you can’t go wrong with red, white and blue, so I am calling it a 3-way tie. That means that all of your comments will decide the winner!!!
