Did you experience deja vu when you saw my outfit? It is almost like you’ve seen this before, but not exactly. Lol! I have a good reason for wearing these colors again today, and I’ll tell you about that in just a bit. But, right now, I am going to tell you about my laugh that I got when I was talking to Joe yesterday morning. Joe asked me a silly question; he said, “do you have to tell everything that you know?” He has been married to me for over 33 years, so you would think that he would already know that the answer is, yes! ?
The thing that I thought was so funny was what he considered was me oversharing. If you follow me on my personal Facebook page, then you would have seen to post that when I travel, I like to eat Chex Mix. Joe hates me to eat Chex Mix because he says that my breath stinks afterward. So, if I am leaving town for a few days, then I will pick up a bag and eat on my journey. That was what he thought was going over the line. Lol! Forget that I have told how tall that I am, how much I weigh, or what size I wear in everything. Forget that I show photos of me with foils in my hair at the hairdresser and that I frequently appear online with no makeup. The thing that is over the line is that he thinks that my breath stinks when I eat Chex Mix. LOL! ?
Now it is time to get back to “why” I am wearing the same colors as I did in yesterday’s post. A lot of you might look at an outfit that I am wearing, and get discouraged because you don’t have the burgundy pants like I wore yesterday. I wanted to show that you can take the “concept” and come up with your own outfit. Instead of the cable knit cardigan from yesterday’s post, I added a classic navy blazer instead. This classic piece is a great addition to every wardrobe because it is so versatile, and it will not go out of style. I have one that has a striped lining on the inside that is old, but I still wear it a lot in the summer so I can roll the cuffs and show the lining. This one is a new one from Tommy Hilfiger, but it has already sold out online. Here are several though for you to choose from.
You don’t see me carry a handbag very often lately. I usually carry this small Louis Vuitton or the Neverfull. The Neverfull was an incentive gift to me. I set a goal for myself, and once I reached that goal, then I purchased the bag. The smaller bag (I have forgotten the name) was one that I bought off of The Real Real. That is a luxury consignment website that sells lots of nice clothing, jewelry, handbags, etc., and the reason that I like that website is that they authenticate everything.
Did you see Monday’s blog post? I shared a photo of my niece, where she was dressed for a Gala that she was attending. If you noticed, she was wearing the same earrings that I have on today. These are the Easton hoops in bright silver by Kendra Scott. I love wearing round hoops earrings, but these geometric shaped earrings are modern looking. They looked amazing on my niece, and I love them on me also. The only drawback to these earrings is…your daughter/granddaughter might try to take them from you. Lol!.
The silver bracelets that I am wearing are the Madijeanne (large links) and the Sheridan cuff bracelet. The Madijeanne is on an elastic cord, and the Sheridan is a magnetic cuff. So, both of these bracelets are easy on and easy off. These bracelets are great if you have arthritis or if you have trouble fastening latches.
The Fiora bootie from Sam Edleman was peeking out from under my jeans. I loved the look of the pointy toe, but I thought that you might like a closer look. These boots have a sharply pointed toe, and most of the time, I have to size up with this style. However, I am wearing my usual size 9, and they fit perfectly.
Yes, the heel is higher than you might like at 3 3/4″, but you can still get a “similar” look if you look hard. The flare jeans that I am wearing are from Kut From The Kloth. I love that brand, and I wear these flare jeans all of the time. I feel like they are a medium flare, and not the large flare jeans from the 70s. These are called Natalie.
Yesterday I added burgundy jeans, but today my burgundy is coming from my floral camisole. The color scheme is similar, but I have switched the way that I incorporate the color. This is how easy it can be to shop your closet for a “similar” look. You can add burgundy as a cardigan, a tank top, shoes, or handbag. Just start thinking outside of the box and do your own version. Christie sent me a photo of her “version” today, and she looked fabulous!!! The cami is from the Loft Outlet, and I am wearing a medium. Here is the link.
