Did y’all know that I used to work in an accounting office when I was in my twenties? I was never trained, nor did I take college classes in accounting; however, I did simple returns and loved everything about the jog. I loved that I got to work with my mom’s sister, Nancy, who was the office manager. She was everyone’s go-to person, and her sweet and kind demeanor was her trademark trait. She taught me a lot about taxes and how to do spreadsheets. And I got super fast with a calculator because of having to do audits for companies.
I have a horrible habit of looking at my keyboard when I am typing, even though it is not necessary. However, when it comes to an adding machine, I can make that baby sing without ever even glancing in its direction. That is a skill set that has come in handy in a lot of areas of my life, especially when I was working at the lumber company. Plus, I know how to reconcile a bank account, and I keep mine in good order, plus I still reconcile the lumber company’s account monthly. That one can be a bear since it has a lot of different entries, checks, and deposits. We all have skills that we are good at, so be proud of them, and let me know what your skillset is. I always find it interesting what I struggle with that others find easy.
I can’t believe that I am going to say this, but I am starting to look at fall fashions. YIKES! I want the warm weather to stay, but I love fall fashion and can’t wait to get to wear the jewel tone colors and ankle boots. I am blaming this on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that started yesterday for a few “Icons and Ambassadors,” which I am not either. Lol! I get access on the 10th, so I have been busy trying to get my lists together for all of you. If you look in the MENU, you will notice a #NSale tab. Click on that, and you will see the preparations that you need to start doing now. Plus, I’ll be showing you more and more information as I get it finished, so check back on that tab often. This is when you will get the first peek of the upcoming Fall and Winter fashions, and you can also take advantage of huge savings.
So, to get you in the mood for fall clothing, I decided to bring you an outfit that I just grabbed off the porch. I love the gorgeous shade of rust for this v-neck top. This top has 3/4 length sleeves, which I find the most flattering on any length. And, it is double-lined in front, so there will be no peek-a-boo going on with this top. Plus, I feel like it helps to hold you in with one layer, and the other layer skims the body. I am wearing a size 1 in this top, and it does fit me snug, but I think that it also helps me to look thinner. This will be the perfect top for layering with a blazer or cardigan this fall.
I just opened this pair of blue-light-blocking glasses right before I started taking my photos. I mentioned in my Friday favorites post that I was ordering these, and I love the touches of gold that they have. It makes them look expensive, but they’re not. They also came with a carrying pouch, a cleaning cloth, a small toolset to work on them, and extra screws and nose pads. I was impressed by all of the details.
My jewelry today is the Mckenna Vintage Gold Pendant Necklace in White Abalone, and the AVI large gold hoops that I wear ALL OF THE TIME! I love these earrings so much that I also have them in silver, They are a large statement earring, but they are lightweight and don’t hurt your ears. Finishing up my jewelry is the long Rue necklace in gold and the Beckett statement link bracelet.
Oh, my word! How fun are these jeans?!? I am obsessed with these embroidered girlfriend jeans, and I will admit that I was not originally a fan when I saw them on the website. Embroidered jeans have never been something that I liked, but I decided to give these a try because I liked the colors in the embroidery. Plus, I love large cuffs on jeans, so I took the plunge and ordered them. The cuff is tacked, so you never have to worry about trying to get your cuffs even. Lol! The girlfriend style is a style that I love, and I think that it looks good on almost everyone. I am wearing a .5 in these jeans, and they couldn’t fit me any better, they are perfect!
From now until colder weather sets in, I’ll be wearing sandals, wedges, and open-toe shoes, but I wanted to give you an idea of how to wear these jeans in the fall. I would actually prefer them with my darker booties, but they are still put away, and I haven’t dragged them out yet. So, this fawn color bootie will have to do, and it will at least give you the look that I was going for. Several boots are going to be in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so be sure to check my posts that I mentioned earlier by looking in the menu for the #NSale.
I just wanted to share a couple more photos of the brow defining boost from other people who’ve been using the product. Plus, some of you have messaged me about what color you should choose if you have gray hair, so I included a photo for that.
I wear light for the most part, but I have worn medium and dark also. All of the colors are forgiving, so you can pretty much make almost any color work.
I love that you can see the “overtime” results from Stephanie, who has been using the product for 4 weeks.
And, when you are wearing a mask, it is all about the eyes. No one can see if you are wearing lipstick, but long lashes and nice eyebrows will always be noticed. Check out yesterday’s post to see all of my specials.
