I am going to tell a funny story, and then I’ll just be giving mostly the links and sizing information. It was a long day today, and I didn’t get to start on the blog post until very late at night. At least you will find the story entertaining, or at least I did. Lol!



The first night that I arrived at my sister’s house, we had all just eaten dinner. I was still sitting at the table because I had started writing my blog post for the next day. I mentioned that I was trying to get up and walk around more because I sit so much at the computer. I am afraid that the circulation in my legs isn’t good, and I’ve noticed that when I get a bruise, it stays forever.

My sister was in the kitchen, and when I told her that, she started walking toward me. She said, “well, you want to see something pretty?” I looked up to see what she would show me, and she started to unbuckle her jeans. She must have seen the confusion in my eyes because she started to laugh. The next thing that I know, she had pulled down her jeans and was showing me this huge bruise on the inside of her thigh.

Apparently, she had gotten hit with a tennis ball the other day during her tennis match. But, the rest of the night, one of us would start giggling and say, “you want to see something pretty?” Lol!



Today’s look is a simple and easy look that you will wear each item a lot. The white button-down shirt is a summer essential item and one that everyone should have in their closet. You can dress them up or down, and you can layer them under jackets and cardigans. I am wearing a large, and I think that it fits me great.



Something is wrong with me! I’ve never liked the color Olive, and this year, I keep buying it. I love the color this year, and that has never happened before. I think this drawstring waist utility jacket is sharp, and I can see myself wearing this a lot this fall. A bunch of you must feel the same way because I put up a selfie on IG wearing this jacket, and I had a ton of people asking where I found it. I am wearing a large, and I think that the jacket runs true to size.



The medium-sized camel crossbody is another item that I love this year. I normally prefer a large handbag so that I can fill it to the brim with junk. However, this year seems to be different, and I find myself wanting smaller handbags. The crossbody style is perfect for when you need your hands free, and this camel color is going to be PERFECT this fall!



Even my sister liked the neutral espadrilles that I’ve been wearing a lot of lately. She has a hard time wearing high heels but can wear a wedge. The wedge shoe is the easiest to wear when it comes to high heels. It is more stable and doesn’t put as much pressure on the ball of your foot. This pair is from J. Crew Factory, and they run true to size.



I wore these Jag Jeans the other day (see here), but I wore them with a huge cuff. So today, I decided to wear them without the cuff so that you could see how they looked. I really love these jeans because they are sooooo comfortable. They are pull-on jeans, but you can’t tell that by looking at them. I am wearing my usual size 10, and they fit like a dream!

    My husband and I are in northern Minnesota, almost on the Canadian border, with our kids and grands. We have no WiFi and very spotty cell service. So when I was finally able to read my email today, I was surprised and delighted to find I won the gift card! Thank you so much! It will be fun to go on a shopping spree when I get home.
