Welcome to your daily escape from what is going on in the world. Here you will find inspiration, crazy stories about my family, the latest fashions, and hear all about my struggles with my fingernails. (more about that in a minute) You can sit back and relax and hopefully leave your worries and cares behind you for at least a few minutes. You are safe here, you are welcome here, and you are loved here. I try hard always to be a person who doesn’t just see the world through a half-full glass, but through a glass that is running over. So, if you are ready to embark on a light-hearted journey with me for the next few minutes, keep reading.
It is just my nature…I can’t worry or stay sad for very long. I do everything that I can, and then I move along. That attitude has served me well in life in almost every situation, except these dang fingernails. Every time I see a photo of me holding something, I cringe. I have faithfully been using Nailtiques Formula 2 daily, I’ve been taking a dosage of Biotin, and I’ve started taking a multi-vitamin daily. It is strange, but the pinkies and the thumbs seem to be getting stronger, while the others are still weak as water.
Yes, I am aware the fingernails are not a necessity, but I love pretty nails, and I long for those days again. Joe laughed at me (not a big shocker) and told me that if I had long nails, it would be harder to keep my hands clean. Okay, for a woman who is always looking on the bright side, I guess I will embrace my short, germ-free nails, at least for a little while. Lol!
You have seen this beautiful pink cardigan before in my Old Navy try-on session. (here) I fell in love with this color, it is so soft looking, and it is perfect for springtime. Spring seems to be all pastels and pale colors, and then summer is all about bright and vibrant colors. There is a LOT that I like about this sweater. The sweater is not only a gorgeous color, but it is also soft, it is the perfect length, and it is affordable. I am wearing a medium, and it fits me great. The sweater is also offered in several other colors, and as of this writing, it is on sale for even more significant savings. Here is the link to the cardigan.
I added a white and leopard necklace to this look. The leopard print in the necklace matched my shoes, and that simple step is what tied the whole look together. This necklace was a gift from a reader, and it was from Chico’s.
The good news is, the rest of my jewelry can be purchased. The Danielle Hoop earrings are lightweight and just the right size. Here is the link for those. And, the Maggie filigree bangle bracelet (and the Fallyn cuff, which is not pictured) is my go-to for bracelets. It is very lightweight and a great piece of jewelry that will go with everything.
My white button-up shirt is one that I have had for a while. I have several white button-up style shirts, but I think the one that I have on today is from Talbots. This shirt is one of my favorites because it has pleats down the front to give it a fitted style. I wanted to look more casual, relaxed, and springy, so I tied the shirt in the front instead of letting it hang or tucking it in. The size I am wearing would be a size 10, my usual size. A white button-up will be an item that you can wear all year round, and with almost anything. Here is the link to this one (I think), and I’ll link to a few others also below.
My Mavi Jeans and Leopard pointed-toe flats round out the rest of this outfit. I love the crop style of these jeans and how they fit me. They hug me like a glove, but in a good way. They are soft and not scratchy like some jeans can be. I am wearing a size 30, which equals a size 10, my usual size. Here is the link to these jeans.
The Leopard flats are from Old Navy. These are super cute, and even though I didn’t think that they would be comfortable to walk in, I was wrong. They are a pair that I have found myself wearing often, and they haven’t hurt my feet. Mind you, I don’t stand on my feet all day long, and I don’t do a lot of walking, but for everyday use, these are fine and look cute. I am wearing my usual size 9, and they fit me great. Here is the link to the flats.
