Happy April’s Fools! So, I asked Alexa to give me an April Fools Prank, and here was her response. “Take an old mayonnaise jar and clean it out. Fill the clean jar with yogurt. When someone walks into the kitchen, take the jar out of the refrigerator, grab a spoon, and start eating out of the jar.”
I am not sure how funny that prank is, but it might get you a strange look or two. The only April Fool’s joke that I really remember was when I was a child. My mother came into my bedroom to wake me up for school. But, when I woke up, she said, “guess what? It snowed last night, and school has been called off!” I was so excited until she said, APRIL FOOLS! Not funny, mom…not funny!
This floral top is so feminine, and it is the perfect color(s) for Spring. The ruffle neckline gives the top an extra feminine touch, and I like that you can either chose to tie the front or leave it open. The pastel colors are so beautiful, and it will look great with so many colors. I chose to add white pants, and I think that brings all of the colors out nicely.
I wanted to show you how long the top was in the front and back, but I chose to tuck it in so that you could see my pants. I also saw that this shirt is made with organic cotton and grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides from non genetically modified seeds. That is something that I hadn’t seen in an item’s description before. I am wearing a large in the top, and it is loose on me, but not overly big.
I wanted to add another layer of color to my outfit to give it some extra dimension. Every time you add a layer, you add more interest to your look. This beautiful shade of blue looks great with the floral top. The longer cardigan hits me at thigh level, and I love this length since it covers my backside nicely.
This cardigan is a shaker-stitch material and has a textured finish. With the crazy weather of spring, this sweater is a nice weight to help with the transition. I am wearing a medium sweater, and it is the perfect size for me.
I have started to really embrace this white pair of cropped flare jeans. The length of these pants is fabulous with flats or heels, and they look equally great with sneakers. The flare and the frayed hem add modern touches, which keep us all looking relevant and HIP. Do they even say “hip” anymore? Lol! The jeans are on sale for 50% off, so now is a great time to add them to your wardrobe. Normally, I wear a size 30 in jeans, but I had to size up to a 31 in these. I actually like sizing up when I wear white jeans, so that worked out perfectly.
The Isla tote from Michael Kors is great for Spring and Summer. The rope handles are not something that you see a lot, and I LOVE the linen-colored canvas tote. This bag is stylish and casual at the same time, and it will go with any outfit you choose, other than something very formal.
I love the brown and brown combination of my belt and ballet flats. I’m not sure that I’ve ever worn this combination before without brown being in the outfit. My belt has sold out, but I have the Madewell in black that I linked to below, and I love it. I ordered a large when the jeans were lower cut, and I had to order a medium for the high waist jeans.
You can’t go wrong with these Tory Burch ballet flats. They are pricey, so I will have to wear them for several years to get my money’s worth from them. Lol! I will admit that I love wearing these flats, though, and I think it is the gold emblem that I love. It adds a touch of elegance to the shoe, which isn’t easy to accomplish with a pair of shoes. Here are some more price-friendly options.
I didn’t add much jewelry, but I did grab these new earrings that make a big statement. The Natalie hoop earrings have a Bohemian flair to them, and they remind me of a rattan basket. Since I am a Longaberger basket fan, these earrings spoke to me. Here is an up-close photo so that you can see the design.
Do you think that they look like a rattan basket?
This is the last week for me to celebrate Joe’s Birthday. He told me that I couldn’t make a big deal out of his birthday. I don’t think that announcing for the entire world to see is making a big deal. Lol! So, randomly, each week, I am going to pick a winner for a gift. The gifts will vary in size and price, and I will pick the winner from the comments that I receive during the week.
This week’s winner is…..Vicki!!! Keep commenting, and you might be next week’s winner.
If you have not signed up, JUST DO IT ALREADY!!!
What is your hesitation???
