Work from home, they said! It’ll be fun, they said!!! I don’t know who “they” are, but I am sure that they are laughing their rears off right now. Lol! I spent the better part of yesterday trying to fix all of my email issues, and I finally have thrown in the towel. I am tapping out; I am screaming uncle. ENOUGH! I am sick and tired of being sick and tired, so I broke up with the “new” provider that was supposed to be bigger and better. Bull Hockey! All it has been is a colossal pain in my buttocks!
So, you may or may not have gotten an email this morning. Since I broke up with the new provider, I went back to the old provider with my tail tucked between my legs to try to figure out what I did to turn off the email notifications. I turned on every button that I could find, and I watched an hour-long tutorial that told me NOTHING, so I am waiting to hear from you. Yes, you got the email, or no, you had to find me on FaceBook or Google. UGH! The next time that I mention doing something new to the blog remind me, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Oh, by the way, I added something new to the blog. LOL! This is working…at least I think it is. Look up at the top of the blog and see a menu in the pink/peach area. To the far right, you will see the words SHOP MY POST. Click on that, and you will see my latest addition to the blog. Why is this anything that you care about? Let’s say that you are interested in the leopard print coat that I wore a couple of weeks ago. With this new page, all you have to do is click on it, and my looks for the past couple of weeks should pop up. Then, you can click on the photo, and it will give you the links that were in the post. How about that???
Did you see my post yesterday? I wore the cutest deer sweater from Loft that is perfect for the holidays. One person commented on yesterday’s post that she liked wearing Fairisle sweaters for the holidays because you could extend the wearing time to include the entire winter season. I agree with her completely, and here is an excellent example of a beautiful Fairisle sweater. I wanted to show you how neutral colors can be festive for the holidays. The colors of this sweater are muted, and not like your typical brightly colored ones, and that is something that I like. This sweater is a lovely shade of creamy beige, and all of the prints are different neutral shades. Plus, to help this neutral sweater with a little pizzazz, there is a gold metallic print in part of the neckline. This metallic thread through the print is perfect for a dressier occasion or a holiday party. It is subtle, but it is also a perfect example of stylish and classy. The sweater is soft, that is something that matters to me, and it is machine washable. I ordered a large, and it fits, but it is just a tiny bit bigger than I would like. I probably should have ordered the medium instead. Would you be surprised to hear that it is also from Loft? I didn’t think that you would be. Here is the link.
I hear a lot of you say that you love the high heels that I wear, but you can’t wear them any longer. I am always on the lookout for cute and stylish flats, but they are so hard to find. I was thrilled when I saw these black flats that I knew I had to order them to see how they looked and felt. The flats are faux suede and the way that the draping on the toe looks, it is almost reminiscent of a bow. The jeweled circles are what make these shoes stand out, and they would be perfect for so much. They will look great with flats, pants, or a dress, and you could wear them out on a date, to church, or to work. They feel really good, although I haven’t walked in them much yet, and I ordered my usual size 9 for reference. Guess what; they are also from The Loft. Lol! I told you that I ordered a LOT of things from the Loft and the Loft Outlet, so you will be seeing a lot from them in the coming weeks. Plus, The Loft is still having a great sale with the code NEWNOW, and the Loft Outlet is still running 60% off your purchase until the 9th of December. Here is the link to these flats.
The Dallin earrings, my large gold hoops, look great with the gold metallic thread in the sweater. I didn’t want my jewelry to be blingy or showy, but I still wanted to look finished and put together. I also added a couple of gold bracelets, the Lelani gold link bracelet, and the Starley gold magnetic cuff.
I promise you that my crop pants are black, even though they look navy. I need to figure out how to combat the color variation when I take my photos in the shade. You can’t take photos in the sun because you can’t hold your eyes open, but when you are in the shade, it casts a hue on the photos that can distort the color. I need to learn how to work Lightroom, an Adobe product that lets you brighten, lighten, and do corrections on photos. Until then, I’ll tell you when a color looks off in the photos. I am wearing an old pair of pants, but investing in a nice pair of black pants is a smart idea. I have several different styles of black pants to choose from. I have leggings, crops, pixie pants, suede, corduroy, chinos, and plain old black jeans. Black is a basic that you will wear over and over again. These are dressier than leggings or jeans, but they are not so dressy that you can’t wear them with a tee-shirt or a sweater. Here are some pants for you.
I was looking back through my most popular items that you ladies enjoyed the most, so I thought that I would show you what you chose. Click on the photo if you want to read more about the item.
