Someone commented yesterday on the blog about sharing a recipe for all of having to cook because we are staying home. I think that is a wonderful idea! I know that I need simple and easy recipes, especially now. As I said yesterday (here), I like one-pot meals, Insta-pot meals, Crock-pot meals, etc. As far as I am concerned, the simpler, the better! So, if you have a simple and easy recipe, please share it with everyone. I’ll include the Lemon Pound Cake recipe that Joe loves at the end of the post.
Speaking of Joe, I came home yesterday to find him up in the air…literally! He had a bucket truck down at the house, and he decided to change out the flag on our flagpole. The flag that we had up was looking pretty ratty from the winter, and he had ordered a new one a couple of months ago.
Just looking at this photo makes me a little emotional. It is time that we come together, not only as a Nation but as people of the World. We all should be striving for the common good, instead of trying to tear each other down. We are in this together!!!
For most of us, we are going to be living in jeans and a t-shirt for the most part. However, that doesn’t mean that we won’t have to head out the door for necessary trips, so don’t be wearing a t-shirt with holes, stains, or ones that are so thin you can see the name of your bra. And PLEASE, put on a bra!!! Lol!
I added this chunky-knit cardigan to this white t-shirt for some color. The blue color is beautiful, and it is definitely a spring color. The cardigan is an open-front design with no buttons; instead, it has a shawl style lapel. This cardigan is heavier, and it will add some extra warmth for those of you who are still experiencing colder weather. Or, if you are like me and are cold-natured, then this will be something that you can throw on to keep you warm.
The cardigan is boxy, so don’t expect a slim fitted look. I am wearing a medium in the cardigan, and it fits great. Here is the link to the cardigan that also comes in three other colors.
Jewelry should be kept simple for this type of look. I like dangle earrings because I want them to show through my hair. If I wear studs, then they get lost in my hair, and you don’t see them as well. The earrings that I have on are a pair that can be styled with almost anything. They can look casual like today’s look, or they can look elegant. No matter how you choose to wear these, they will look stylish.
The necklace is the same way; it can be worn with almost anything. I love long necklaces; I think they help to elongate your neck just like a v-neck does. The necklace that I have on today is 36″ long, and it has a dainty design. It is not a statement necklace; it is a supporting necklace. It won’t detract from what you are wearing, but it will enhance it instead. Here is the link to the earrings, and here is the link to the necklace. BTW, both of these are on sale for 20% off, and you will be able to wear them for years to come.
You might remember seeing these slip-on sneakers in my shoe try-on session (here) on Tuesday. These sneakers fit me like a glove! I wore a pair of Sperry sneakers (here), but I ordered in the wrong size, so I re-ordered them in the correct size. I love both of these shoes, but for different reasons. The Rothy’s fit like a dream, but the Sperry’s are a little more stylish and a whole lot cheaper. UGH! I don’t “need” both of these shoes, but I want the Rothy’s and since the Sperry’s are on sale…well, you know. Lol!
I am wearing a size 9, my usual size in the Rothy’s, and I am wearing an 8.5 in the Sperry’s. Here is the link to the Rothy’s slip-on sneakers, and here is the link to the Sperry sneakers.
These jeans! You gurls spotted them out immediately when I wore them in Thursday’s try-on post. Lol! I plan on doing a try-on session next week on affordable jeans, and all of them will be under 100.00. I loved this pair so much when I tried them on that, I ripped off the tags and wore them the entire day. They are so soft and comfortable, and they also fit me like a glove. I think that this is the first pair of Wit and Wisdom jeans that I have ever owned, but I doubt that it will be my last. These are a jeggings style, so they are made to fit tight.
The website said that these run big, so you should order a size down. I am wearing a size 8 instead of my usual size 10. However, if you want yours to fit looser, then order your usual size, and you should be fine. These do not come already cuffed; I have simply rolled them up twice to achieve this look. You lucky dogs are going to get these cheaper than I did since Nordstrom is having a 25% off sale. Grab them quickly since they are now under 50.00!!! Here is the link.
The last clothing item to talk about is my v-neck t-shirt. It is by the same brand as the one that I wore in yesterday’s post. This is a white t-shirt by A New Day from Target. As I said yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice these t-shirts were, especially for the price. You can’t see through the shirt, I don’t have on a camisole, and you still can’t see my bra. Yes, I am wearing one. Lol!!! This shirt is on sale for 5.00, so grab one, two, or three while you can get them for that price. I am wearing a large, and it is plenty roomy for me. Here is the link to the v-neck t-shirt.

Don’t forget to share a recipe with all of us. Here is the Lemon Pound Cake recipe. The only thing that I change is, I use the ENTIRE bottle of lemon flavoring ( 1 fl. ounce ) instead of 1 TBS. Also, the cake gets really crunchy on the outside, so it normally only bakes for 1 hour, but everyone’s ovens are different. Sometimes the cake falls in the center after you take it out of the over. When it does that, it is the BEST! Because it is probably a little under-cooked, it is so moist and gooey on the inside. Joe loves it when that happens.
