I’ve been trying to set office hours because I tend to work around the clock doing something for the blog. There are always clothes to order, steam, photo, and I’m always thinking of new posts to write. To separate my blog life from my regular life, I’ve started to go to the basement where I have an office. I try to “clock in” by 9 am and “clock out” between 6 pm and 7 pm.
I bet most of you are scratching your head trying to figure out how I can work for 10 hours on the blog. There are so many tiny things that go into blogging; it is more than writing a post. But, today, it was GORGEOUS, and I didn’t feel like going to the dungeon (my affectionate term for my office), so I came upstairs and sat out on my screened-in porch instead. One good thing about working from a laptop is that it can go with me anywhere. Lucy Lu came out to keep me company, and we both loved the warm weather and gentle breeze.
A White Classic Cotton Crewneck Tee is a Spring and Summer essential item. White goes with almost anything, and a tee is so versatile that you can wear it with a blazer or jeans. I like to buy one or two good quality tees each year, and this one is excellent. You can’t see through it, and it is soft and comfortable. I’m wearing a large because I like my tees to be relaxed instead of tight.
Here is the length of the tee. It is not leggings length, but it is hip length.
It was perfect timing that these Pink Resin Statement Drop Earrings came in yesterday. I didn’t order the earrings to go with this outfit, but they are an ideal match! I’m also wearing my Cross Necklace in 18 Kt. Gold Vermeil and two of the chains from my Davis Necklace. I love that you can adjust the necklace to wear one, two, or all of the chains.
Oh, my word! I just bought this adorable leather Raffia wristlet in truffle. This wristlet has HOBO Bags’ signature circular handle, and I love the textured design. The interior has a bill slot and six credit card slots. Plus, the interior back has a zip pocket for items you want to ensure don’t fall out. You’ll see a lot of this handbag this year, and I’ll probably try a full-size bag too.
I love a denim jacket, and you will hear me repeatedly say that everyone needs one of these in their wardrobe. They are a versatile clothing staple, and you can wear them in at least three seasons of the year. This denim jacket by Wrangler can be styled with a dress, shorts, pants, or a jumpsuit. The jacket is lightweight and unlined, and I love the fit and style. On cold mornings and chilly evenings, this gives me the right amount of coverage to keep me warm. I am wearing a large, and it fits great.
Here is a photo where you can see the length of the jacket.
Now, for the Tossed Flowers Perfect Crop Pants. I LOVE these floral pants, but I’m betting that these pants aren’t going to be for everyone. Joe loved them also and commented about how nice I looked. My daughter told me that I looked like I was wearing curtains. Lol! It is a good thing I love her so much. Hahaha! I chose to wear white with the pants, but I also had a pink tee that looked good with them. I think that navy would also be a great color to wear with them, what other colors do you think? Orange maybe? I’m wearing a size 8, which is what size I usually wear in Talbots pants.
I bought these braided gold sandals last year at Target. Metallics are really in this year, so I should get a lot of wear from them this summer. There is a pair at Talbots that looks almost identical. They are the Cece Braid Metallic Thong Sandal, and the only difference is the Talbots one has two strands of braids instead of the one strand on mine. I have the Cece Sandals in silver, and they are comfortable.
Now, it is time for your input…Hit or Miss? What do you like about the outfit, would you wear the floral pants, and what would you change?
