TAKING A BREAK CAN BE GOOD FOR THE SOUL

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a navy ruffle v-neck top with white denim crops and white moccasin shoe from Michael Kors

 

Y’all, I am slowly losing it. It would be referring to my mind. The other day, I told you about traveling to our new home and how I left my computer cord at the house. Joe was so sweet to drive back an hour out of his way and get it for me. Well, I must be channeling Brittany Spears because, “whoops, I did it again!” This time I not only forgot the computer cord…I forgot the entire computer!!!

I make my living on the computer for those who don’t already know, so it is a pretty important part of my work life. I actually took an entire day off and spent it with two of my grandchildren and my DIL. We shopped, we grabbed something to eat, and we laughed a lot. It was soooo enjoyable, but then I had to pack everything up and head back to the home we live in most of the time.

I walked into the house, unloaded all of my stuff, and then went to sit down and start today’s blog. That is when it hit me that I didn’t have a laptop to work from. Lol! Joe started to give me a hard time until I reminded him of everything he forgot on our little weekend trips. It looks like I will have to make a checklist for both of us and put it in our cars. We aren’t allowed to start driving until all of the boxes have been checked off. BTW, Joe is driving back to Abingdon tomorrow to pick up my laptop. He is a keeper!

This was what I ended up wearing for Memorial Day. It is simple, chic, and something that you could wear at any time, not just on Memorial Day, the 4th of July, or Labor Day. I like versatile items that can be worn multiple ways, and this outfit qualifies.

The ruffle v-neck top is feminine looking, and it can be dressed up or down. It looks great today with my white jeans, but it would also look awesome with a pencil skirt and heels. I am also extremely fond of flutter sleeves, and I think that this length is one that most people can wear.

I am wearing a size large top, and it fits great. The top comes in two other colors, in case you don’t need another navy top. By the way, the top looks much darker in person; the bright sun makes it look lighter. I like this brand, and I will link to a few more tops that you might enjoy.

I love it when I start reading a description of an item, including the words, “no stain.” The only thing better would be if it said no stain AND no iron. Lol! I am wearing a pair of white So Slimming No Stain girlfriend crops from Chico’s. Whew! Try saying that three times in a row.

I ordered a size 1, and I love the fit of these girlfriend jeans. They aren’t see-through, and they aren’t skin tight. Those are two critical details that you want to make sure you have when you are wearing white anything. According to the website, these are powered by Stain-Repel, Bright-White™ technology, and offer a stay-true hue that stays white longer and repels water-based spills.

I’ve had the Natalie Statement Earrings for a long time, but I hardly ever wear them. I am not sure why that is since I like them a lot. Gold is sold out online, but silver still is available. I also added my Rebecca stretch bracelet in White Howlite, and I have worn this thing out this summer. It is out of stock also, but you can sign up for an alert, and they will let you know when it is available again.

My white Michael Kors flats are several years old, and I still wear them all of the time. I love the mocassin rubber bottom since that has kept me from slipping and sliding on wet surfaces. They updated the shoe a tiny bit, and here is the link for the new version, and they run TTS.

So, you tell me, which would you have rather done…played with these two, or worked on the computer all day long? If you said, worked, then I am not sure that we can be friends. Lol!

I would love to hear from YOU!

  1. I’d say you definitely made the right choice playing with those two cuties. I didn’t realize you had a place in Abingdon too. I think it’s just the cutest town. When my husband and I were dating, (he was in Richmond, and I was in Nashville) we’d meet at exit 7 and then drive over to my grandmothers (in Cedar Bluff) for the weekend. Such fun memories

      Yes, Abingdon is gorgeous. We bought a place right off exit 14, so it is super convenient to everything.

    Tanya, you work so hard that it’s a pleasure to read you had an enforced day off. The children are such beautiful blondies xxx. We also have a 2nd home 1.15 hours from our main home, plus I travel a lot for my biz, so I hear you when you mention leaving cables, computers etc. behind! My solution has been to purchase a Surface Pro as a 2nd laptop and it’s ‘mirrored’ to the computer in my office. So, whatever I’m working on is accessible either in the office or wherever I am on the planet (also on my phone of course). My IT people did it for me, but it’s all done through the Cloud (I was skeptical at first, but now a fan). Further, my husband has bought an inexpensive laptop battery/cable that he leaves in the townhouse as he’s always leaving the original one behind in our main house. With floods in our region this week (Canterbury, NZ) we’ve realised once again just how much we rely on power and technology,

    Cute feminine top! Oh my look at your grandbabies…just precious.

    I have to tell a story about when mu husband and I went on a weekend getaway to the mountains. Once we arrived to our beautiful lodge we organized some of what we had packed when my husband noticed he forgot to pack his underwear. Lol. Luckily there was a clothing store in the townsite that sold what he needed.

    That top is very flattering on you. I’m a fan of flutter sleeves too. They just feel so breezy and freeing.
    Love the pictures with your grandchildren; especially the candid one. So cute!

      Love the outfit and the great picture of you with your grandchildren! Chico’s stain resistant white pants are good for water-based stains for about 20 washes. I really like my 2 pair, but still need to watchful!
