I have still been working on getting me an office so that I can get all of my stuff off of the kitchen table. We have finally gotten it painted, the flooring down, and the trim work is done. There are a few minor things that still need to be done, but the majority of the hard stuff is finished. I have been looking for a desk, but I hate the idea of buying one off of the internet. Those come in pieces, and they look flimsy, so I can’t bring myself to purchase one.
Also, if I am completely honest, I am not positive that I’ll like working from that room. So, I hate to spend money on something that wouldn’t be used. We had an old desk out at the lumber company that hadn’t been used in years. In fact, it was Papa Joe’s desk. (Joe’s father) I had the boys bring it to the house, and you should have heard them whine about it weighing 300 pounds. Lol! The desk had a drawer in the middle, and then it had drawers on each side. If the drawer in the middle is shut, then the other drawers are locked and won’t open.
To get the desk through the door, they had to turn it on its side. After they brought it in, I went to clean the drawers, but they won’t open. The locking mechanism has got off-kilter somehow, and now none of the drawers will open. However, I did manage to get a sliding platform to open, and it had a lumber list taped to it. The list had to be before we installed computers, which was in 1995. I thought it was interesting.
I am back today showing you how to take your loungewear/leggings/sweats etc. and make them appropriate for heading out the door at a moment’s notice. The outfit started with me grabbing this striped tank top from the closet. I was hot from running around and cooking, so a tank was what I wanted to wear. The deep scoop neckline is flattering, and I have found that this tank goes with almost anything. I love the thickness of the material of the tank; it has washed up great since I’ve worn it multiple times. I am wearing a medium in this tank, and it fits great. Here is the link to the striped tank, and I’ll see if I can find some similar ones in other colors for you.
I have some simple gold jewelry on with this look. The Avi large hoop earring in gold are a pair that I just bought the other day. I have had the silver version of these earrings, and I found myself wearing them all of the time. So, when I saw that Kendra Scott was having a sale, I took advantage of that and grabbed the gold version. Almost all stores are having sales off and on at this time because their retail stores are shut down. Take advantage of those sales while they are available.
I am also wearing the gold Rue necklace and the Fallyn link bracelet. Because these are plain colored items, you will find that you will wear them with a lot of different looks.
These woven linen slide-on mules are going to be perfect for spring and summer. They are so easy to slip on as you walk out of the door, that I have worn them multiple times already. I must be lazy because I would rather slide these on instead of taking the time to put on a pair that I have to buckle or tie the strings.
This was one of the pairs that I ordered in when I did my spring and summer try-on session (here), and they made the cut to stay with me instead of being sent back. I haven’t brought my summer shoes out of storage yet, so these keep getting called into action. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these shoes, and they fit perfectly. The heel is small at only 1.25″ so almost everyone can wear these, plus there is some padding in the footbed for added comfort. Here is the link to the shoes.
Leggings are what a lot of us live in on our “down” days. These are the days when we don’t have to get dressed up, which is almost every day now. We might as well take advantage of these comfy days, as long as we don’t slip into comfy and slouchy. There is a right way to wear leggings for when you want to be able to see people, even from a six-feet distance. These are Zella high-waist leggings, and they have moisture-wicking fabric to keep you cool in your workouts. If they can keep you cool during a workout, then they can keep you cool doing housework. Lol! I am wearing a large, and these are still nice and tight. Here is the link to the black leggings.
To head out the door, I would throw on this lightweight open front cardigan by Time and Tru. This is a soft knit cardigan with just enough weight to it to keep you warm on chilly mornings. I don’t want a heavy cardigan at this time of the year, just something that I can put on when you go to the grocery store. Why do they keep grocery stores so stinking cold? You almost have to run down the meat, milk, or freezer section. Lol! Here is the link to this cardigan, and I am wearing a size medium.
I am sorry that I didn’t have time to answer the comments yesterday. Work called and needed me to come in since they were short-handed. Unfortunately, it looks like I am going to have to go in again today to help out.
