If you have only been following me for a short time, then you might not know that I occasionally get gifts and rewards from the skincare business that I own. One of the rewards was for a trip for Joe and me, and we had the choice of 10 different destinations from which we could choose. But, we kept putting off making plans for the trip because we could agree on where we wanted to go. I knew that we had a year to choose our destination, so I procrastinated. Are any of you a procrastinator?
Fast forward to April when we were supposed to give our decision. Who would have ever known that COVID 19 was going to hit, and going on a trip anywhere was going to be a thing of the past? So, I got an email asking me if I wanted to postpone the trip until August of this year, or if I wanted the money equivalent put on a MasterCard. I chose to take the money since I wasn’t sure if I would be traveling in August. I had earned TWO trips, so I had decided to keep one of the cards to pay for a potential trip and use the other card to purchase lawn furniture for the patio.
After looking and looking for lawn furniture that I wanted, I threw up my hands in defeat. What I wanted wasn’t practical because of the cat’s and also because we lived beside the train tracks. So, I asked Joe if he would rather have a new mattress instead of the lawn furniture. He couldn’t say yes fast enough, and he already had the mattress picked out. Today our new Purple mattress arrived, and I can’t wait to try it out. If any of you have the Purple mattress, let me know how long it will take to adjust.
You all know that I have been in a neutral mood lately. This gorgeous sweater satisfies my neutral attitude, but it also is perfect for the part of me who loves color. I love the relaxed feel of this light and airy sweater. The dolman 3/4 sleeves keep the sweater roomy, and the deep v-neck is flattering for every body shape. The sweater is a linen and cotton blend that is machine washable. I am wearing a size 1, which is an 8-10, and you can see that fits me perfectly. You can wear this top casual or as dressy as you like. I think that it will look great with jeans and a pair of heels also. HERE is the link to the sweater.
I LOVE the “love” jewelry! The love necklace doesn’t show well in the photos, but it is covered in tiny little crystals for a small amount of bling. This necklace is from the Styled Collection, and HERE is the link. I was so excited when I found the love bracelet that almost matches it exactly. It is from Lilly Pulitzer, and I love the fact that it is adjustable. It can fit the smallest wrist and also larger ones. HERE is the link to the bracelet. The Bamboo hoop earrings (HERE) are also from Lilly Pulitizer. I love the tropical vibe of earrings, and I think that they are a perfect size. The Rue long necklace finishes the look and frames the love necklace. I like wearing a long necklace, especially when wearing a shorter necklace. HERE is the link to the necklace.
If I want to keep the outfit in neutral shades, then these So Slimming Brigitte Button-Hem Ankle Pants from Chicos are a perfect choice. I am wearing a sand color, but I also own this pant in navy and black. I like that they are a pull-on style and that they fit so nicely. With Chicos, I have found that I need to size down in pants, especially if they are stretchy like these. I usually wear a size 10, which is a size 1.5 in Chico sizes. But, when the pants are stretchy, I wear a size .05, which is a size 6. While I appreciate the ego boost, I know that I am still a size 10 in real life. Lol!!! HERE is the link to the pants.
But, if I want to brighten up my look with some color, then these Pixie Pants from Old Navy did the trick. These pants are old, and I bought them at least a year ago. When you purchase colors that you like, you will often find that you have other items in your closet that will match them. I can’t find these on any websites, but I found some purple-ish pants for you to consider.
The wedge espadrilles (HERE) are from Target, and I love the two-toned color scheme. I wore these the other day (HERE) with another Lilly top, and boot cut jeans, and I thought they looked great. I like how they are a neutral pair so that I can wear them with lots of different colors. These fit me perfectly, and I am wearing my usual size 9.
I’ve had a couple of people message me about my new doormat that I posted about that (HERE), I thought I would mention it for a few days. I bought this at Frontgate, and it is so lovely and very thick. In fact, I have been known to stub my toe when I am taking pictures since I am not used to its height. Lol! HERE is the link to this incredible doormat.
Do you think that it was planned for me to talk about buying a Purple mattress and wear purple-ish pants? Silly gurls, you know that I am not that organized. Lol! I do want to know if any of you have the Purple mattress, though, and I am also curious to see which of these looks you like the best.
