Welcome to the weekend! It is time to sit back and relax for just a few minutes. Grab an extra cup of coffee, enjoy reading the blog for a few minutes, and close your eyes and listen to the birds singing. In other words, just chill. Then, you can start your day off with the correct mindset before LIFE starts getting in the way. Maybe your agenda calls for grocery shopping, laundry, vacuuming the house, or running errands. Those chores will still be waiting for you, but for now, let’s just sit and talk about this weekend style look that I think is both casual and dressy.
Unless there is some huge event going on, you will usually find me in jeans or leggings. Jeans have been my choice lately, and I usually pair them with a sweatshirt, t-shirt, or a comfy oversized top. You’ve probably seen my posts on taking loungewear to the next level, but if not, then you need to check out FROM THE COUCH TO WORK IN A FEW EASY STEPS and WHAT IS LUXE LOUNGEWEAR AND WHY DO YOU NEED IT. Those outfits will have you relaxing in comfort and style!
This soft yellow argyle sweater is gorgeous! I am not normally someone who is drawn to yellow even though I think it is a beautiful color. But, this year, I keep finding myself hitting ADD TO CART yellow items. One of my favorite looks this entire year was a yellow sweater from Banana Republic that I wore last month. With this sweater, I loved the shorter cropped style that is great for wearing with the high-waisted jeans that are trending.
I’ve always loved it when a sweater has a large ribbing at the hem to help create a blouson effect. I also love the boat-neck design of this sweater since it helps me to create curves. The boat-neck style gives the appearance of wider shoulders which makes my waist look smaller. I am wearing a medium in this sweater and it fits great! Ann Taylor is having a huge 40% off sale on New Arrivals until April 3rd, and this sweater is 40% OFF! USE CODE: INBLOOM
See, I told you that this was a beautiful sweater. All of the items from this post linked for you below.
You can see that the sweater is not very long in the back since it is a cropped style. As long as it doesn’t show my belly, I am fine with the length.
I have styled this neutral camel handbag before, and I saw that a bunch of you took advantage of the sale and purchased it. This is a great medium size tote, and the leather is very soft and subtle. Unfortunately, so many of you purchased it that it is now out of stock. I think that it will be restocked soon, but I’ll link to some similar bags just in case it isn’t.
Chico’s is having a Chic In Bloom sale with 40% off select styles.
I know, I know… a lot of you are rolling your eyes at me for wearing these distressed jeans. It is just a small slit in the jeans, and it hardly even shows up unless you bend your knee a lot. How many of you walk around with your knee bent like this? Lol! But, in the long run, it doesn’t matter if you liked these jeans or not since they are sold out also. I sure wish these retailers would have more inventory, it is frustrating for you and me both when they are all sold out.
I could just sit here and pout about the jeans being sold out. But, instead, I found you some similar ones that I think you will like, and they ARE in stock right now. I am not guaranteeing anything though, that might have changed by the time some of you read this. There are so many sales going on right now that the clothing is flying off the shelves.
I always add earrings with my casual outfits, but not much else. My gold tone large AVI hoops go with everything, and I love that they make a statement all by themselves. The last thing that I added to the outfit is my neutral Steve Madden loafers. These will go with anything, and I’ll be wearing them all spring, summer, and fall. I know that they were limited in size the last time that I looked, but let me see what I can find for you.
Ladies, you know that I am always asking you to sign up for my daily emails, and you need to make sure that you have done that. I will be sending out a “special” Saturday email in addition to my normal daily post, which will include some daily finds, items that I’ve just ordered, and maybe a tutorial or two. You can sign up here so that you never miss a thing.
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???
