This week is flying by! Here it is already Wednesday, and I need to get packed for the conference. I will need to leave super early in the morning so that I can get checked in, get registered for the conference, and then get dressed for dinner. All of that after driving 6 hours to get to Nashville. Whew! I am already tired, just thinking about it. But, since tomorrow is mine and Joe’s 33rd wedding anniversary, I thought I at least needed to stick around long enough to kiss him before I head out the door. Talk about time flying, how can 33 years have passed by so fast? I can remember in detail the first few months when he and I started “talking.” But, it is funny how everything from those months until now, are all in a foggy haze. It is funny how our brain works because I can remember a lot of great times, and I can remember the crappy times, but all of the normal everyday times seem to have disappeared. And, let’s face it, there are a whole lot of normal everyday times in our lives. We lived in different states for the first few months of our marriage, and I can remember talking on the phone for HOURS before bedtime. This was before cell phones, and I remember racking up a pretty significant phone bill. Lol! Now more days of long-distance calls, thank goodness. The other day, a young girl at work (17) called on the landline to another landline phone. She looked kind of puzzled and then hung up the phone. We asked her what was wrong and she said that the phone was making some weird beeping noise. We laughed and laughed at her because it was a busy signal. She had never heard one before since she has always had a cell phone only. ?
Here is another example of the big, slouchy, and oversized look that is so popular. I feel like this is a dressy version instead of being something that looks dowdy. I think that ivory and white are such a classy combination, but this look is anything but classic. The sweater is very soft and has a tiny bit of stretch in the material. It is a blend of acrylic, nylon, and wool, with a tiny bit of elastane. I am wearing a medium, and that seems to be the correct size for me. The top is hand washable, and that is a plus. This sweater also has a small variation in height from front to back, but not a huge amount. Here is the link to the sweater.
I have on the same jewelry as what I wore in Monday’s post. I had on a multi-strand black crystal necklace, but I ended up liking the sweater without it, so I took pictures both way for you to see. I thought that the sweater looked dressier without the necklace. What do you think? Necklace stays or goes?
Well, I thought as long as I was getting you out of your comfort zone with the faux leather leggings, I would go ahead and style the over-the-knee boots. I have been looking for this style boot for a while, but everyone that I find has too small of a calf for my legs. My calves are too large for the “normal” version of this style boots but too small for the “wide” calf ones. When I found this pair, I was scared they wouldn’t fit, but they fit great! They are snug so that they stay up, but they are not hard to put on at all. When I put them on with a pair of jeans, I will put on a thin nylon tall sock and pull the sock up over the jeans. Then, I rub a tiny bit of baby powder over the sock so that the boot will slide easily. This works for all tall boots, and you are welcome. Lol! Here is the link to the boots, and I am wearing a 9.5 instead of my normal size 9.
I thought that you might like to see a photo from when Joe and I first got married. We were married on November 14th, and Joe came home from Texas for Thanksgiving. We drove to his mom and dad’s, and I think this photo was taken at that time. We are such babies and skinny babies at that. Lol! He was wearing his usual khakis and a white button-up shirt uniform, and he still wears that to this day. Lol! He is not one to venture out of his comfort zone when it comes to fashion. Lol!
