Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, and I can’t wait. When I walked to the mailbox this morning, I noticed that my Forsyenthia bush was in full bloom, and that inspired me to wear something in yellow. I’ll give you all of the details of this outfit in the following paragraphs. But, first, let me tell you that my name is NOT William Blevins. Lol! This morning…..
My cellphone rang with a number that I didn’t recognize. They asked for William, and I politely told them that they had the wrong number. A few minutes later, the phone rang again, but from a different number. I answered, and once again, they were looking for William. That was only the beginning because the phone continued to ring all morning long and from a different number each time. I started hitting the ignore button each time it rang, but it started to get on my nerves.
Finally, I answered the phone in exasperation, told the person on the other end to take me off of their list, and that I had gotten around 85 calls that morning. She apologized, and we hung up. Five minutes later, the phone rings again!!! This time, I answered the phone, “THIS IS NOT WILLIAM BLEVINS!” None of that helped.
Joe had been secretly laughing over the whole mess, but he was even starting to get fed up with the calls. He walked back into the house as my phone started ringing again, and he said, “let me talk to them.” I thought that he would say that he WAS William and that he didn’t want whatever they were selling. NOPE, that is not what he did. He proceeded to say words to the poor man on the other end of the phone that would make a sailor blush. To make it worse, the man on the other end tried to protest, which made Joe all the madder.
As soon as Joe hung up the phone, he said, “what did you think?” I said, “I think this is going on the blog!” LOL!!! Anyway, I am happy to report that it has been several hours, and my phone hasn’t rung at all. Lol!
My pale yellow cable-knit sweater is gorgeous, but it had me searching Google for answers. It turns out; this sweater is manufactured with 60% cotton and 40% hemp. Now, I’ve heard of hemp ropes, and I know that they are very strong, but the sweater didn’t look scratchy or itchy, so I wanted to know more about the material. I found out that the textile is made from the stalk of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp is similar to cotton, but it is doesn’t shrink and doesn’t pill like cotton. Like the hemp ropes, clothing made from hemp is durable and will last almost double or triple that of cotton clothing. Hemp is also breathable, usually lightweight, and is ideal for warmer areas. WOW! I don’t know about you, but I am sold!
If I didn’t already love this sweater, I would after learning all about hemp. This pale yellow is such a gorgeous color, and when I walked through the house in it to show Joe, he said, “you have always loved that color.” I wasn’t aware that I had other things in this color, but if he says so, I am not about to argue with him after the tongue lashing he gave that man. Lol!
I was trying to think of any cons that I had with this sweater, and I honestly can’t think of any except maybe the price. But, remember, this will last for years, so you will get your money’s worth from it. Lol! I love the deep v-neck, and I think it will look great worn this fall with a button-up shirt under it. The sweater that I am wearing is a medium, which is plenty roomy. I saw that this sweater’s white and clay color is now on sale, so I ordered the white version also. I love cable-knit sweaters, and I can never have enough white sweaters.
Today’s jewelry is the Rebecca Gold Multi-Strand necklace in White Howlite, the Josie earrings in a great lightweight medium-sized hoop, and the Natalie hinge clasp bangle bracelet. Each of these items will be something that you will be able to wear for years since they will not be going out of style anytime soon.
I decided to wear my neutral suede kitten heels with this outfit, and I love the look. The kitten heels look dressy, and they elongate my legs, but they are easier to walk in than higher heels. These have a cushioned insole, and they are really comfortable, and I think they are the perfect neutral color. I am wearing a size 9 in these, and they fit true to size.
The search is over; I have found all of you a loose-fitting straight-leg pair of jeans that look great and aren’t baggy. I love the fit, the color, and the length of these jeans. Because I wanted to make sure that the jeans didn’t fit me too tight, I sized up to a 31 instead of my normal size 30. I size up because the higher rise jeans waist can be too tight on me since I carry a lot of weight in the tummy area. Yay, me… The jeans are cut slimmer through the hips and thighs and then fall straight to the ankle. That creates body balance and is very flattering to almost everyone.
The ankle-length jean is great for any style of shoe. Flats look awesome, sneakers look awesome, platform shoes look awesome, pumps look awesome, wedges look awesome, and boots look awesome. I think that you got the picture, right? Lol!
I am carrying a Tory Burch handbag that I bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Nice handbags are my Achilles Heel, and I couldn’t help myself when I saw this one go on sale. At least I don’t have a shoe addiction too, or at least I don’t have one yet. Lol!
