I think that I am losing my mind, and surely it couldn’t be age-related. We have been traveling to our new home each weekend, and slowly taking more and more items over there so that we don’t have to cart them back and forth. Usually, I have a checklist so that I don’t forget the important items. I figure that I can make a Target or Walmart run for everything else that I forget. But, they don’t sell “this” at those places.
Yesterday morning, I was up to my eyeballs in taxes. Since there was an extension this year, I hadn’t bothered to get my things together. So, the past few days I’ve been gathering, copying, and making a spreadsheet to send our accountant. I was working in my office, but I needed something that was on my laptop, so I unplugged the laptop and brought it into the office with me.
Our new home is 1 1/2 hours away from where we currently live. I was driving along, listening to Matthew Mcconaughey’s book, Greenlights, when I had a thought that ran through my mind. “You forgot the plugin for your laptop at home!” I was at the halfway point in my trip, and I called Joe to tell him that I was turning around to go back and get the cord.
I figured that Joe would tease me for forgetting my cord, but instead, he said, “I go back and get it for you, I’m only 30 minutes away.” Y’all, that is true love! Give me a man who will drive an hour out of his way for me, and you can keep the flowers.
I am a cobalt blue-loving girl, and this outfit is one that I LOVE to pieces. Some items I style end up being returned because I don’t think that I’ll wear them again, or I already have three other items that look just like them. This outfit is one that is staying in my closet!!! I am not sure where I’ll be wearing it, but I know that I’ll find someplace soon.
You can’t see it from the photos, but this top fits me like they came and took my measurements. It has seams up the front of the top, so it is a slim fit that creates a slimming silhouette. I love the wide straps at the shoulders because I don’t have to worry about my bra strap showing. Also, because the straps are wide, I don’t have arm cleavage!
This is a substantial weight top. It reeks of quality and style, and you will find yourself wanting to wear it all of the time. I ordered a medium in the top, but if you want a slightly looser fit, then you could order the next size up. The cobalt blue color is limited in size, but this is also available in black. Black is a color that is a staple, so it would be a good choice. ALSO, there is a 30% off sale on your entire purchase, so it is a great time to treat yourself.
I don’t even see back fat with this top! This top is worth its weight in gold! Lol!
I thought that the Toile Cardigan looked fabulous with the blue shell. But, now that I look at the cardigan, it would also look great with the black shell. See the black strip detail all around the cardigan? This is a great example of how adding a third clothing item to your look can change it from wow, to WOW!
The sweater is actually ivory instead of white like my pants, but I think it still goes great with the whole outfit. A 3/4 length sleeve has always been my favorite because it is the most slimming. Ever notice that I scrunch up my sleeves to this length?
I am wearing a medium in this cardigan, and I think that it fits great. If I was going to wear something with a sleeve under it, then I might size up to a large instead. Like the top, it is also part of the 30% off sale!
These double-sided pearl hoop earrings remind me of something that Coco Chanel would have worn. They are sharp-looking and they dress up anything that you wear them with. My only other jewelry is my gold vermeil chain and cross pendant.
These white and beige heels are perfect for spring and summer. The shoes are by Rockport, so they are comfortable also. Well, they are as comfortable as heels can be. Lol! I’ve been wearing heels for so long that my feet hurt when I wear flats, but I’m incorporating more flats into my routine.
I am wearing my usual size 9, so I think that these shoes run TTS. This pair is only available in sizes 8.5, 9, and 9.5 at this time. Here are some other neutral shoes to choose from.
I really like these white high-waisted wide-leg pants. The leg opening is wide, but it is not so large that it adds a lot of volume. These pants are great for balancing out our body’s proportions and are especially helpful if you have wide shoulders or wide thighs.
I am wearing a size 8 in these pants and they fit me great. I liked these pants so much that I tried to order the navy version also, but my size was already sold out.

I am going to be going live with Jennifer from A Well Styled Life, Susan from Une Femme, and Deborah from Fabulous After 40. We will be discussing things that we are taking out of our Spring wardrobe and things that we are keeping.
