Before I start today’s blog post, I want to take just a minute and ask everyone to please say a prayer for those who are being affected by the wildfires that are ravaging states in the West. I looked at a wildfire map on fireweatheravalanche.org, and it is mind-blowing to see how many states have fires. The fires are making it hard to breathe with ash in the air, and the temperatures are soaring, which is making everything even worse. Please pray for those who have lost loved ones, homes, and property, and for those who are trying their best to get the fires controlled.
I went on Instagram Stories yesterday and told everyone about Joe’s latest obsession. He cracks me up sometimes with his wardrobe habits. When he finds something that he likes, he will order fourteen of them. I am not even exaggerating about that. He only wears a specific pair of khaki pants or blue jeans, so he has lots of them. He looks like he is wearing the same pair of pants every day, even though it is a different pair. Lol!
I’ve tried for years to get him to branch out with his wardrobe, but he won’t budge. However, he finally has discovered his latest passion, and that is Skecher’s shoes! He ordered several pairs of shoes the other day, and he liked all of them, but he is crazy over this pair of Skechers. He originally ordered the Taupe pair, and after wearing them for about a month, he asked me to see if they came in any other colors. So, I found them in Charcoal, and they came in yesterday. He then asked me to order him another pair of the Taupe ones, which confused me. He said that he was going to keep wearing the ones that he has now for his “everyday/work in “shoes and that he wants another pair for “going out” shoes. Lol! If your hubby wants a pair of shoes that are lightweight, these are the ones. But, you are forwarned, he might become addicted.
You know that I love a v-neck sweater! This gorgeous red pullover sweater is soft and comfy, and it looks terrific. This is a nice medium weight sweater that is light enough to still layer under a coat, cardigan, or vest. Plus, it will look great when worn over a button-up shirt or polo. I love red, so I will get a ton of wear from this sweater. But, if red is not to your liking, then you can choose from one of the other six colors that it comes in. Since the sweater is only $18.00, you might want to select several. Lol! I am especially partial to the cobalt blue and rust-colored one.
Last Tuesday, I did a Target Try-On Session, and these black faux-leather moto leggings were part of that session. I styled them with a casual camo t-shirt, and then I got a couple of messages asking me how to style the leggings more dressy and stylish. Soooo, that is how we ended up here today. I love these leggings, and the fit is so comfortable and amazing. I am wearing a size large in these, and they fit perfectly.
To dress things up a tad, I added this black twill blazer from A New Day. This blazer fits like a second skin! I love how it perfectly hugs you to help you appear thin and then flares out to give you a great shape. This one-button blazer will look fabulous with jeans and boots, or with a skirt or a dress. And, since it is under $35.00, so you know that you will get your money’s worth.
The jewelry that I am wearing is the Kaia fat hoop earrings, the Rue long necklace, and the Maggie bangle bracelet. I have worn the Rue and the Maggie for months, but the Kaia is a fairly recent purchase.
I can’t say enough about this leather handbag from Vince Camuto. The size of this bag and the way the leather feels is amazing. The gold hardware is nice and substantial, and I think that the gold looks very luxurious against the black pebbled leather. The bag comes in several different colors, and since it is from QVC, it is available on the 5 easy payment plan.
I added my red suede pumps to the look to tie in the red from the sweater. I’ve had these pumps for a long time, and since pumps are a classic shoe, I will be able to wear them for years to come. Some people think that pumps look “old and frumpy,” but I see young women strutting in pumps also. You can’t tell me that these pumps look frumpy, especially when worn with these moto leggings. Lol!
