How is everyone doing? It has been a crazy first have of the year for most of us, and we are trying our best to figure out how to have a life still and also to be safe. When the restrictions for going and coming were first put in place, we had rules and guidelines to follow. Even though we didn’t like not being able to get our hair styled and our nails done, we understood the necessity and were happy to comply if it kept us safe. But, things are changing again, and it is not as clear on what we need to do.
Every state has implemented different guidelines, and even those guidelines can change weekly. Here in Virginia, our Governor just announced that everyone who enters a public place should wear a mask. But, in some other states, it seems like the doors have been flung wide open, and everyone is allowed to go and come as they please. Do you have any plans to go on a vacation? Are there any upcoming weddings that you want to attend? We have our condo booked for a vacation in July, and I would love to get away and enjoy the ocean. I am sure that we would take food and cook our own meals, social distance ourselves from strangers, and have a gallon or two of hand sanitizer or wipes with us to use every time we opened a door or touched an elevator button. But is it worth it?
Usually, I consider pastels to be a color that I associate with spring. Once summer rolls in, I will go for brighter and more vivid colors in my outfits. But, this soft pink has me questioning why I would ever relegate it to only being worn in the spring. The softness of the color gives me a softer, more feminine look, and I honestly love the effect. So, this is how I chose to wear pastels in the summer.
This cardigan is one that I purchased from Walmart for under $10.00. I am wearing a medium, and you can see that it is plenty roomy on me. This cardigan is a fine gauge knit with a ribbed hem and cuffs. It is rayon and polyester, and it is machine washable. HERE is the link to the sweater.
Someone commented that they had issues returning an item to Walmart because of the restrictions put in place regarding COVID. You can’t return a long list of things to the store, including fashion items, but you can return them by mail. I’ve recently sent some things back, and I actually prefer sending it back by mail instead of me having to make the trip to the store. I simply typed in the order number, and then selected the items that I was returning. I printed my FREE return label and put it in the mail. It was a simple and easy process.
First off, I am sorry to tell you that my pale pink cross necklace is not available for purchase. This was a necklace that I bought years ago from Plunder, and it has been discontinued for a long time. But, I did want to show you how you can take a long necklace and wear it is a different way. Changing the way you wear the necklace gives you more options and versatility. I simply looped the necklace around my neck and threaded the cross through the loop. You can then adjust how tight or loose you want the loop to be around your neck.
The large leopard print flats (HERE) are a pair that I bought at Old Navy back in early spring. I love the larger print; it is different from most leopard print items that you see. The size that I am wearing is my usual size 9, and I think that they fit me great. Since this style has been on the website for a while, they are getting limited in sizes. So, I found other styles in this pattern (or very similar) that you will also like. They are below, and all you have to do is click on the photo to be taken to the website.
Last week, on this post (HERE), I showed you a gorgeous pair of shorts in a 5″ length. Today’s shorts that I am wearing is in a 6″ length. Does that extra inch make a difference? For some of you, the answer is YES!!! I want the extra length, and possibly even longer. These are the Riveria shorts from Loft, and I have them in several colors. They fit me great, and the length is good for me, so I order multiples when that happens. I am wearing my usual size 10, and they fit me perfectly, so I feel like these run true to size. These are a mid-rise, so they hit me right below my belly button, and they are machine washable. Check out the other colors that are available by clicking HERE for the link.
I’ve been trying to tell everyone about the new monogrammed doormat that I purchased at Frontgate. It is super thick, and it is very plush and heavy. HERE is the link to this incredible doormat. But, it just occurred to me that you might like a different option that was similar, but not exactly the same. So, here are a few more that you might like.
I am not sure if you have been going to the “main” page on my blog, or if you just view a daily post that is sent to you by email. I have a new feature on the blog that I got up and running over the weekend, and I am constantly tweaking the menu section also. Be sure to check those out and let me know if you noticed the addition.
Also, be sure to comment your thoughts about travel, vacation, or eating out this summer. It will be interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts.
