I feel that I need to give you a warning. According to my lovely daughter, who is in visiting from Alaska, Joe and I are boring. Are you as shocked as me by this statement? How can she find someone who never goes to the grocery store, never cooks anymore, sits at least eight hours at a computer, and doesn’t watch television boring? I am not sure what she thinks people do who are over the age of 50, but I can’t be the only boring person out there…can I?
Here is the warning part; you gurls follow me. Lol! If I am boring, then what does that say about you? Hahaha! I don’t want to be a boring person. I want to be exciting and active, but everything that she mentions that she wants to do finds me shaking my head. Here is the problem; I don’t want to climb mountains, I don’t want to go cave spelunking, and I have no desire even to do normal things like go to a movie. I will admit that when she “forced” me to go on an outdoor adventure in Florida on paddleboards, I had a great time. So, maybe in 2020, I will say yes to more adventures and get outside of my comfort zone. It would be nice if I could do those from my nice comfortable chair. Lol!
I know that I have loved the Fairisle print sweaters in the past few months. And I hesitated to show you yet another similar print sweater, but this one is so gorgeous that I had to show it. I saw this in person in the store, and I immediately went back to the room (I was at the beach) and ordered it. I hate trying on clothing in the stores, and since I don’t have stores near me to return things if they don’t work, I like ordering the best. Some people might find neutrals to be boring, but I bet they would think otherwise if they saw this sweater. The muted colors are beautiful, and I think this sweater looks luxurious and elegant. The mock turtleneck design is not tight; I can’t stand when things are tight against my neck. This is a soft sweater, and it is a cotton, polyester, wool, and acrylic blend that is machine washable. This sweater is on sale right now for 50% off, and I am wearing a 1 for sizing purposes. Here is the link to the sweater. If you want to see some of my other Fairisle sweaters, then here is a gray one, here is a beige one, and here is an ivory one.
The multi-strand necklace is perfect for this sweater. I felt like the sweater needed “something,” but I didn’t want to distract from the muted tones of the look. The Christine necklace was a perfect choice since the beads blend in with the look of the sweater. The large gold filigree hoops are a new purchase that I am loving. These are the Maggie Hoops by Kendra Scott, and here is the link. I have never been a fan of the stone jewelry by Kendra Scott, but I love the plain metal jewelry. So, far I have a necklace and three pair of earrings, and the quality of my items are excellent. I have the bracelet ordered (here) that matches these earrings, and it should be here in a couple of days. My earrings are the large version, but if you want a smaller version, then here is the link. I have a link for you to get 20% off your first order, so be sure to take advantage of that by clicking here.
I think that the sweater would look great with jeans, gray, white, and a few other colors. But, today, I am wearing a pair of high waist corduroy pants in a color called cool sand. I loved the monochromatic look of the outfit, especially since the colors in the sweater were so muted. I like the skinny pant style, and I love corduroy material, so these were a no-brainer for me. The color is what attracted me because I have plenty of navy, black, and gray pants. I am always on the lookout for something different and special, and I think that these fit the bill. They look more mauve in the photos, but they are a taupe color, a lovely shade that is between a gray and a brown. These pants are also on sale for 40% off, so grab a pair while you can. I am wearing my usual size; that would be a 30, which equates to a size 10. Here is the link to the pants that comes in eight different colors.
I just got these pointed toe ankle boots in this past week. These are by Vince Camuto, and they fit nice. I like the chunky heel; they are easier to walk in than most heels. You can see the elastic gore inserts on the sides that help these to slide on and off easily since there are no zippers. The pointy toe took a little getting used to, but because these are leather, they had some give to them, and now they fit great. I am wearing my usual size 9, which fits great. You can’t see in the photos, but if you look at the pictures online, then you will see that there is a faint crocodile pattern in the leather. These boots are also on sale for 40% off (I love this time of the year), and here is the link if you are interested in getting your own pair.
I haven’t mentioned anything about my skincare line, and I have been getting a few emails asking what I am using. I use, and sell, Rodan + Fields skincare. What I currently use is Redefine Regimen, which is the regimen for anti-aging. If you want to know if it works, then look at the archive search feature and go back to when I first started blogging. Pictures speak louder than words!!! There are a few products that I use daily, and those are the Active Hydration Serum, the Multi-Function Eye Cream, Active Hydration Body Replenish, Lash Boost, and the Intensive Renewing Serum. I also use Radiant Defense as my makeup/foundation, and even that has anti-aging properties in it. If you are interested in starting the New Year looking your best, then here is the link to the Solutions Tool that will recommend what products that you should consider.

There is a one-time enrollment fee, but I will reimburse you that cost since I never want anyone to pay to do business with me.
