Milestone’s, One Down and Hundreds To Go

DSC_0036_2_2Let’s celebrate!!! I actually made it to the one month mark. Lol! I know some bloggers have been online for years and years, but this is a big deal to me. For this first milestone, I decided to do a giveaway, and wear plaid, pearls, and pants. Aren’t you glad I included the pants?DSC_0036_2This plaid shirt is one of my favorite purchases this year. I bought it a month ago at Old Navy on a trip to Tennessee. This one is similar, I couldn’t find the actual one on the website. These pearls are a vintage find, but you can find these on the Cato’s website. I remember when my husband and I first started dating, I would put on a necklace like this, and he told me that only me and little gray haired old women wore jewelry like this.  Let’s not talk about my hair, but let’s just say I have more in common with those ladies than I did back then. DSC_0036The purse is a little black crocodile print vintage purse. The really cool thing about this purse is the handle.DSC_0085DSC_0053Take off the pearls, change the purse, throw on a vest, and the entire look of the outfit changes. It goes from an elegant look, to a more laid back look. The pants are Mid-Rise Rockstar jeans. They sit just below the waist and have a skinny leg. The knee patch puts a whole new look to just plain jeans.DSC_0052This purse is a Emma Fox that I picked up a couple years ago at T J Maxx. Here is a similar Emma Fox purse at Macy’s. And the bootie’s are Marc Fisher’s that I purchased at the QVC overstock outlet. They are really nice, and are great quality.DSC_0052_2Now about the milestone. According to Wikipedia: A milestone is a significant event in your life. Often a milestone marks the start of a new chapter. My milestone is blogging consistently, for ONE month.

  18. Came across your blog in a fashion linkup. I could tell that I liked your style when I saw the photo of your plaid and pearls–yes! As I’ve gotten older, I make a conscious effort of wearing my “nice” jewelry, like pearls, for an everyday outing, even with jeans, or using the sterling silverware for weeknights. I think your look is awesome!
