Are you following me on Instagram? If not, then go right now (HERE) and follow me because there are times when I share things in my “stories” that never hit the blog. That is especially true when I find a sale that is a TODAY ONLY sale. I can’t get that on the blog for all of you to see, but I can put it on my stories and give you a heads up so that you can save some money. Plus, that is where I will share some cute videos or tutorials.
Over the weekend, Emersyn came to spend the night, and we started having a conversation about her outfit. I decided to video her since she was wearing a Dracula cape and knee socks, but I had no idea the direction the conversation was going to take. When I asked her about the socks that she was wearing, she told me that they were her “mom’s mom.” So, I said that they were her grandmother’s socks, but she said, “NO!” Then she explained to me that her “mom’s mom is mostly my aunt.” I once again explained that her mother’s mother was her grandmother, and she told me, “I don’t get that,” and then she walked off. Lol!
Our conversation continued with me explaining that since I was her grandmother and her father’s mother, then her mother’s mother was also her grandmother. I believe that she might have given me a “whatever” and possibly an eye-roll. I went back to videoing her, and she started ignoring me at this point. “Emersyn,” I said! I am talking to you,” and she said, “I know…and I want you to stop!” LOL! All of that last part was said in a sing-song voice. Hahaha! You would have to have seen the video to find it funny. Writing it out doesn’t do it justice.
Gingham is one of my favorite prints, especially in the spring and summer. Maybe it is because it reminds me of going on a picnic, but there is something about this print that I love! When I found this black and ivory blazer in a linen and cotton blend, I knew that it was something that I wanted to style for all of you. I could see this blazer looking great with an all-white or an all-black outfit. The blazer would also look great when worn over a bright-colored top such as hot pink, red, or light blue. I was undecided on what size to order in the blazer since I sometimes wear a 10, and sometimes I wear a 12 when it comes to jackets and blazers. I ended up ordering a 10, but it is a little tight through the shoulders, so it will have to go back. HERE is the link to the gingham linen blazer.
My gold Elle drop earrings (HERE) are in an Ivory Mother-of-Pearl. Mother-of-Pearl is a genuine shell material produced as the inner layer of a shell and is also what makes up the outer coating of pearls. I love the iridescent sheen that it has, and I love that it is something that can be worn with almost anything. I added the gold triple-strand Elisa necklace in the matching Mother-Of-Pearl. (HERE) I like that this necklace is shorter, but I also want a longer necklace in this same color, so I ordered the Reid necklace (HERE), and I am hoping that I like it when it arrives.
The jeans that I am wearing are by Wit & Wisdom. I have fallen in love with this brand of jeans, and they fit and feel like a dream. They hug you so tightly, but they don’t feel tight if that is even possible. These are a jegging, so they are supposed to fit tighter than regular jeans. The website suggested to go down one size, so I am wearing a size 8 instead of my usual size 10. If you would rather your jeans not fit this tightly, then order your normal size, and you should be fine. I wore these jeans un-cuffed today (the inseam is 30″), but if you would like to see how they look cuffed, then check out this post. Here is the link to these jeans. I am wearing a white bateau neck sleeveless sweater today from Chico’s. I have a similar sweater that I have worn for almost twenty years that I love, but it is a little dingy and stretched out from so much wear. So, when I saw this very similar version, I immediately ordered it since I know how much wear I will get from it. This sweater is a basic item that will you will wear over and over again with blazers and cardigans. Plus, it looks nice when worn alone, which I will do once the weather gets warmer. This sweater also comes in navy if you are afraid that you couldn’t keep the white clean, and it is machine washable. I am wearing a size 1 in this, which is equal to an 8-10, and I think that it fits me perfectly. HERE is the link to the sweater.
