It is the weekend!!! Do you have plans, or are you just sitting at the house like me? Well, I guess that I do actually have plans for later tonight, but right now I am trying to sort out the mountain of clothes that I have ordered in. Every day another package gets delivered, and it is almost getting comical. I must have gone crazy with all of the specials and sales over the past very weeks. My bedroom has packages EVERYWHERE, and I can’t take photos of all of the clothes fast enough.
I am trying to get everything to you as soon as possible so that you can grab your items before the sales go off and before the stores get sold out. That is the biggest danger at this time of the year; everything gets picked over quickly. Stores are having more sales than ever to try and drive traffic since so many people aren’t shopping in the stores. I never shop in the stores and do 99% of my shopping online. It is so convenient, and I don’t have to worry about where I left my buggy. I was the worst for losing my buggy and having to look all over the store to see where I left it. Lol! There has been more than once that a salesclerk would find it and then put all of the clothing back on the shelves since they thought the buggy was abandoned. I’ll take online over in-store any day; plus, I actually spend LESS money online than when I go into the stores.
I LOVE this cable-knit mockneck sweater. This is a very nice quality heavy-ish sweater, and I love how it feels. It feels like quality, and I know you know what I mean by that. There are things that you touch, and you immediately know that it is a quality made item. I love all of the different textures of this sweater. The ivory color is beautiful and a great neutral, and I love the length of the sweater. It will go with leggings, jeans, pants, skirts, etc. I think that I will wear it with my Spanx faux-leather leggings the next time. I am wearing a medium, and the sweater is still roomy and big enough for me. Use the code CHEERS to get this sweater for 60% off.
I wanted to wear a pair of crop jeans with this sweater so that I could show off my new boots. These high-waisted straight jeans are super stretchy, and they fit slim through the thighs and fall straight from the knees down. I am wearing my usual size 10, and even though they fit, they are a tiny bit snug around my waist. Maybe Joe was right about me needing to lose some weight. Lol!
NOW, let’s talk about these boots!!! Oh, My Word! I have resisted ordering a pair of white/ivory/cream/off-white boots, and now I am kicking myself in the rear for waiting so long. I have a long foot, and I wear a size 9, so I don’t like calling attention to my feet. I can remember having my cousin tease me that I would have to back up to a door to open it because my feet were so big. With family members like that, who needs enemies, right? Anyway, I have steered away from wearing white shoes, even in the summer months, so I am SHOCKED that I love these booties! I will warn you that these boots have a higher shaft, so it will take some getting used to because they hit you on the leg when you walk. I did have to size up in these boots since they run small, and I am wearing a size 9 1/2. Ssssh, don’t tell my cousin what size I am now wearing. Lol! I think that this pair is a little expensive, so I will try and find some with the same look, but at a lower price point.
I thought that you might like an idea about the length of the sweater, so here is a quick glimpse. BTW, I loved reading all of the comments about the plaid shoes on yesterday’s post. Some were entertaining to read, and I loved seeing all of the different opinions. That is what fashion is all about, an expression of your likes and dislikes. The winner of this week’s giveaway is Cindy Roth!!! Cindy, look for an email from me because I will need your shipping address. BTW, the shoes are going back. In the end, I decided that I don’t wear flats that often, and I wouldn’t wear them enough to justify keeping them, even if they were on sale. As someone mentioned, do they bring me joy? The answer was no, so back they go.
The new year is fast approaching, and I have already started thinking about next year. I am making plans, goals and putting the balls into motion. If you don’t act proactively, then next year will be a repeat of this year. You have to start preparing now for what is to come. What are you preparing for? Do you have any goals, any plans?
