It is just another day here in the Stephens household. Like a lot of you, I am trying to use my time at home wisely, even though I was home a lot already. I have cooked waaaaay more than ever before. Thanks to everyone who commented about a recipe on my blog the other day. I am sure that I might have missed some who commented by messenger or on a different post. If I did, then re-send the recipe to me, and I’ll add it to the PDF that I created. You will find the PDF at the end of this post.
Joe has been getting my office fixed up for me, and we are almost finished. I now need to find a desk, but they all look so cheap online, and the ones that don’t look cheap are crazy expensive. One side of my room is going to be for a desk and an area to take pictures. The other side of the room is going to be for exercise.
We had two treadmills, but my ankle has been bothering me ever since I fell in the parking lot at McDonald’s on my way to Tennessee. So, Joe bought me an elliptical machine and sold one of the treadmills. Today was the first day that I got to try the elliptical out. Oh my; I am in horrible shape! I was exhausted in just a few minutes. I was on the phone to my mother, Joe was standing there talking to me, and I was almost gasping for breath in just 5 minutes. Oh well, I guess we all have to start somewhere. But, tomorrow, I am going to try it again without talking to someone at the same time. Lol!
I am continuing with the t-shirt and jeans theme today. I love solid t-shirts because they are so versatile, but a striped tee is the next best thing. A striped tee is what I would consider a neutral; it can be worn with anything and any pattern as long as it is in the same color family. I found this navy striped tee the other day when I was ordering me a new white t-shirt for the summer months. (I like a new white tee every year) This tee is a fine knit tee, so it is more polished than most t-shirts. I am wearing a size medium, but I think that I would prefer a large so that I don’t have to worry about lumps and bumps showing. Here is the link to the shirt.
I love my geometric shaped earrings. They are the perfect length, and they have a modern style. These are the Easton Hoops in bright silver. Here is the link to the earrings. The bracelet that I am wearing is the Rue cuff. It is so dainty and cute, and I like that it can be adjusted after it slides on your arm. Here is the link to the cuff. The long silver necklace was a gift that I received from Rodan + Fields when I went to Nashville back in October. This was my first piece of Kendra Scott jewelry, and now I am hooked. I never thought that I would like this jewelry brand, but that is what happens when you make assumptions.
I am wearing the chewed hem jeans from Loft. These are a pair that I wore here, and here is a white pair that I wore earlier. I showed you a distressed pair on yesterday’s post that had lots of holes. They were too distressed for a lot of you, but this pair might work for you instead. These only have mild distressing at the hem, so you get to be part of a trend, but not have skin showing.
I am wearing a size 10 in these jeans, and they fit great. They are snug because they have a lot of stretch to them. Here is the link to these crop skinny jeans.
I added an open-weave navy cardigan to my outfit because I was chilly. The sun was shining for a change, but the wind was blowing, so I was cold. I am not sure how much warmth this type of sweater would be if it were cold, but for a tiny bit of coolness, it was fine. I’ve had this sweater for a while, so it isn’t available on the website any longer, but I found a couple that is similar.
The shoes that I have on are a pair from Old Navy that I bought a couple of weeks ago. I have found myself wearing them way more than I thought that I would. I like how easy they are to slip on, how stylish they are, how affordable they are, and how they spruce up any outfit. The size that I am wearing is my usual size 9, and here is the link to the shoes.
