Almost a year ago, Joe bought a ceramic butter dish that sets out on our counter. My mother has always left the butter out on the counter in a dish or bowl, so I never thought that it was odd. It was just smart in my eyes because the butter was always soft and easy to spread. Joe loves toast in the morning, and he wants his butter to be soft, so ordering this one pound butter container was smart.
The container that we ordered isn’t showing, but this one is very similar. I usually keep 2 sticks in the container at a time, and more sticks in the freezer that I can bring out when needed. The other day, we had steaks, and Joe loves to dip his steaks in butter with garlic seasoning from Lowrys. He didn’t use one of the small bowls of butter, so I scooped out the butter and put it over to the side in the container to be used later when I was cooking. Joe came through yesterday and decided to fix him a piece of toast with butter. You see where this is going right? He took a huge bite of his buttered toast, and then gave me a funny look. “Did you put garlic butter in the butter crock?” I smiled and told him that I put it on the side away from all of the other butter, right before I saw him chuck his piece of toast in the trash. Lol! I guess garlic toast for breakfast was a no for him. Hahaha!
I have always thought that a matching set was so elegant looking. I know that matching anything has been frowned upon in the past, but frowning causes wrinkles, so that will be their payback for being judgemental. Lol! A lot of people associate matching sweater sets with their grandmas or the Golden Girls, but the younger generation is starting to catch on to this super easy and stylish way of dressing. Think Jackie Kennedy, and then mix that with Kendall Jenner, and you have the look that is becoming popular again.
This gorgeous Aqua cardigan and tank were on the Final Sale website, so I quickly took advantage of the savings and ordered it in. I love this color for the spring, but it also looks great in the fall with deep browns. This lightweight V-tank comes in three colors, but each of them is getting very limited in sizes. I also ordered this set in the bright violet color, and it is gorgeous also. I ordered a size 1 in the tank, and I think that it fits perfectly.
The McKenna necklace in White Abalone is the perfect neutral for almost anything. It has a blue/turquoise sheen to the stone, so I thought that it looked great with my turquoise set. I also added the AVI large hoop earring in gold, a favorite of mine for a while now. Plus, I’m not sure why I felt the need, but I also added the Rue long necklace in gold and a recent purchase, the Layla Gold Long Pendant Necklace in Bronze Veined Teal Magnesite. Try saying that three times really fast. Lol! Last but not least, I added the Beckett gold link bracelet to finish off my look. I truly think that accessories make an outfit.
You gurls know that I like unique details, and the diamond pattern on these Brigitte Textured Slim Crops really makes these stand out from the rest of the crowd. I never want to “blend in” with everybody else, and you shouldn’t either. I wore these pants with a Silk Ruana the other day, and they looked so elegant with that outfit. I am wearing a size .5 in these pants, and I know that is confusing when you first start purchasing from Chico’s. But, once you get the sizing down pat, it is easy breezy from now on. I usually wear a size 10 from other brands, but I have found that for me, the .5 works best.
I am still loving these Blue Light Blocking Glasses that I just bought. I am having to get used to having the nose pads since the other pair that I had were just the frame only. I remember having to adjust to nose pads years ago when I wore glasses, and if usually takes a couple of days before you don’t even notice it anymore. The anti-blue light & anti-radiation coated lenses are best used for long hours of computer use to reduce symptoms of eyestrain and maintain natural sleep patterns. These are not prescription or readers, they just block the harmful blue light rays.
The high/low Aqua cardigan that I am wearing is also on final clearance. This is a lightweight, long sleeve cardigan, and it will dress up any outfit. As you can see, I simply shove up the arms in the warmer months, and then I’ll wear them down as it starts to get cooler. I ordered this also in the violet color, and it also comes in three other colors that the tank didn’t come in. And, this cardigan is under $20.00, so quit sitting around, get busy ordering. Lol!
