Happy Labor Day, everyone! I hope you are enjoying the long weekend and are spending time with family and friends. I don’t actually have any plans, Joe is playing golf with his buddies, so it looks like it will just be Lucy and me by ourselves. I’m not complaining since it will be quiet and peaceful, and I’ll get a lot of work done. Isn’t that what Labor Day is for…laboring? Lol!

Since my day will be laid back, I figured that my outfit should be casual also. I had a stomach bug that was going around, and for three days, I haven’t been fun to be around. Maybe that is why Joe has played golf almost every day.

Little does he know that he made a BIG MISTAKE, leaving me all alone today. That will give me lots of time to shop all of the Labor Day Sales that are going on. Many of them are ending today, so I have a list at the bottom of this post that gives you the sales info.

Several of you noticed this beautiful blush pink top that I was wearing in my latest YouTube video. I saw a saleslady wearing this top and immediately fell in love with it. If I had seen the top on the rack, I would have passed it by without a second thought. But it looked great on her, so I had to give it a try.

This is the Wearever Perfect Tee from J.Jill, and I am wearing a size medium. I have become a huge fan of the Wearever line by J.Jill, and if you’ve ever tried it, then you know what I mean. It is super soft, wrinkle-resistant, and comfortable. Plus, it is machine-washable, so that is a big plus.

I wanted to try a Petite in the top, hoping that it might be a tiny bit shorter. I wanted the white Wearever layering tank that I am wearing under the top to show more. So, I’ve ordered a Petite in size large because I want it to be boxier and not cling to the top underneath.

My pink and green multistrand necklace is from Chico’s, but I don’t see it on their website. I did find the blue and green version, but not the pink one. Do I even need to tell you what earrings I am wearing? Lol! I wear these gold AVI large hoops all of the time, it seems! They are lightweight, make a big statement, and go with anything!!!

These slim bootcut jeans are a new purchase. I love the color of the jeans, and they fit perfectly! I often get a pair of jeans that fit so well, but I am starting to find a few brands that I can count on. 7 For All Mankind is a brand that I am obsessed with lately. They have the perfect amount of stretch, and they have style by the bucketloads.

This pair is by Jen7, a line that 7 For All Mankind launched with us mature ladies in mind. They are concentrating on the fit in these jeans rather than on trends and seasonal styles. I am wearing my usual size 10, and they run TTS. If your size isn’t available, then try this pair which looks identical.

Yes, I am still carrying this suede animal print handbag; I have to get my money’s worth from it. Lol! This photo was taken before I put my handbag inset in it, so it looks floppy. I love this modern-looking bag, and the two-tone strap is really eyecatching. I get compliments on the bag every time that I carry it shopping. AND, it is on sale at Nordstrom Rack for 49% off. WOW!!!! Thanks, Cathy, for the heads up on the sale.

My Tory Burch sneakers completed my outfit. They are a wonderful neutral color, and I can wear them with anything. They run TTS, and they are extremely comfortable. They are on the pricey side, though, so I’ll link to some similar styles that are more price-friendly.

    Are you wearing blush top backwards? The site shows it as a v-neck. It is beautiful either way!

      No, this top is the same either way. I didn’t notice that it was a v-neck until a little while ago. I don’t see the crew neck version, and the Petite one that I ordered was the v-neck, but it hasn’t arrived yet.

    I really like the blush top, unfortunately it’s not available in my size. I would have liked it in navy also. I like the necklace in the blue and green as well. I might have to get that one. I’m still thinking about it. Enjoy your solitary day. I enjoy having one of those just to do whatever I want for me.

    Your Lucy reminds me so much of my Lil Bit that I had years ago in my 20’s. She was the sweetest thing. Would sit on my lap while driving , put her paws on my arm ,head out the window & press against my chest, like a hug. Miss her!

    I love this lush blusha color. It works like a neutral for me. I also love how you mentioned how to put these two tops together. Sizes matter. You look great!
    I get up at 4 to feed my cat lately, his idea, so I get to read first.
