How many of you are getting sick and tired of being at the house ALL of the time? This might fall under the saying, “be careful what you wish for; you might just get it.” Staying at home sounds so wonderful and inviting, and, for the most part, it is exactly that. But, sometimes, too much of a good thing can start to get on your last nerve!
The other night some of my friends were on a ZOOM call, and one of them mentioned that she was sooo excited. We were all waiting to hear her good news, but we didn’t expect what she told us. She said, tomorrow, I get to get all dressed up and put on my makeup for the first time in 5 weeks. All of us were sitting on the edge of our seats, wondering what in the world she was going to do. With the way things are right now, you can’t go and do anything except to go to a few stores which aren’t exactly exciting. She said, “I have a doctor’s appointment out of town, so I get to drive somewhere!” We all busted out laughing at her for being so excited to go to the doctor. If this had been last year, she would have been saying, “shucks! I have to go to the doctor tomorrow. I hate having to drive all the way there and back. It will take me all day long.” Isn’t it funny how all of a sudden, we went to, “I get to” versus “I have to?”
Ladies, this is the first time that I’ve taken my photos in my new room since I got my desk. I am now debating what I should add to my “photo-shoot” area. I was thinking about adding something on the wall. Do you remember the giant “S” that I had on my porch? Here is a blog post back in 2015 that shows the “S.” That one was covered in moss, but I have a wooden one that I was thinking about painting white and hanging on the wall. I was also going to add a plant and possibly a rug. What do you think? Does it even matter? Do you like the porch pictures better? Inquiring minds want to know. Lol!
Let’s talk about my jewelry first. I am wearing a gorgeous pair of statement earrings from Kendra Scott. These are lightweight, but they create quite a statement. They are made with braided metal for an airy design that looks like a large flower to me. I’ll be wearing these a lot this summer. Here is the link to the Hallie earrings. I am also wearing a dainty gold necklace and a filigree cuff bracelet from Kendra Scott. The Rue necklace comes in gold, silver, or rose gold, and some earrings and bracelets match this design. The Maggie bangle bracelet is gorgeous, and it matches a large pair of hoops that I purchased a while.
This adorable cork clutch is perfect for the summer months. It has gold metallic trim, and you can use the gold chain to make the clutch a cross-body or a should bag. I love the natural color of the purse, and I have a pair of cork heels that I need to get out of storage to wear with this handbag. It is big enough for the necessities that you need to carry with you. The bag is on sale for around 20.00, so grab it by clicking here.
Are you a jumpsuit person? They are so easy to wear since it is only one-piece, but they do have their drawbacks. You all know the biggest drawback, having to use the bathroom. There is no easy way to use the bathroom when you are wearing a jumpsuit; everything must come off. This one isn’t too bad since it slips on instead of having a zipper. This is by Lou & Grey, and it is very soft and comfortable. Also, it is no longer on the website, even though I just got this in the mail. SUE!!! I need your help! Can you find this for me???
I am wearing a size medium in this jumpsuit, which fits true to size. I did find a Lou & Grey v-neck jumpsuit on the Lou & Grey website, and here is the link to that one. And, since that one is also limited in sizes, I’ll see if I can find a few more that are the same but different. Lol!
This type of jumpsuit is very versatile, and it can be dressed up or worn casually. That means that you can wear this to a class reunion, or to the beach, and you would look great either place. For this look, I envisioned getting to go back to Myrtle Beach one of these days and wearing this out to dinner. I added this cute straw hat to keep the sun off of my face. I love the light neutral color that will go with anything and the black grosgrain band that gives it that classic look. Hats don’t look great on me unless they have a broad brim like this one. This brim will be great for keeping the sun off your neck so that no one will be able to call you a “red neck.” Lol! Here is the link to the straw hat.
I also added these straw/linen looking mules that I would wear at the beach. These are from Target, and they are very affordable. Here is the link to these mules.
I forgot to give you the answers to the questions I asked the other day. My husband’s name is Joe. I am 59, but only for another month. ? My dog’s name is Lucy Lu. I’ve been blogging since September 2015. And, I use Lash Boost to get my gorgeous long lashes!!! You gurls sure know me awful well. Lol!
I had one lady jump on yesterday’s ZOOM call. These calls will be happening every week, but I am available to talk at any time. The blog and Rodan + Fields have allowed me to retire, and I know that earning an extra income could mean a lot during these times. Rodan + Fields is offering cashback on the enrollment kits, and I am going to match that cashback. It is my way of giving back to those who desperately need an additional paycheck. Here is the link to look at the different ways that you can enroll.
