Greetings from North Carolina ladies! I figured I would shake things up a bit and change my salutation…lol! I’m in a playful mood today, this can be a good thing or it can be a bad thing. I am the type of person that comes into work always in a good mood. I like to play and joke around and make things fun, for me and for my coworkers. My kids, well, they don’t like me being playful…they think I’m just mean at times ha!
When I say mean, let me give you an example. When the kids were smaller we had a little Maltese names Gizmo. Gizmo was all about me, he was definitely a lap dog and he usually stayed in mine.
I am that Mom that would call a child (namely Chase) and ask him to pick Gizmo up and take him with him. As soon as Chase would put his little hands around Gizmo to pick him up, Gizmo would growl. A deep little growl for a 7 lb dog. Of course, I would bust out laughing and Chase would say…”You did that on purpose Moma”. Chase, my oldest, is below – totally a picture he
I did and I still get an inner snicker out of those days. Are you guys like that? Do you play around with your kids like I do? I do Barry like that too! I usually put him on FB, but I have given him a break for a while. My family says Barry must REALLY love me haha!!!
I put in that part about my husband because he just told me the other day, I never post about him. I’m sitting here giggling typing this. Barry wants to be on the BLOG so I’m adding him in today ladies! I know he’s reading this, so…hey honey! (smile) This is one of Barry’s favorite pictures of us taken last summer.
Back to the Blog!
Now, let’s talk Spring colors! Coral is going to be a big part of this Spring and Summer color trends. Remember when I went to Atlanta at the first of the month and told you girls coral was everywhere? It is! I was in my local Cato store looking around and found a few cute pieces I thought I would share today. I actually took these pictures on my way out the door this morning and I must say that I really liked wearing this top!
The sleeve detail is what makes this top. It runs a tad big so I would size down. I bought a Medium in this top and have plenty of room through the waist and bust area. It falls right past your bottom and can easily be tucked in, half tucked or no tucking at all. The color to me is coral, although Cato calls it “Citrus”, I got a lot of compliments on the color and I think you ladies will really enjoy this one. Get the top HERE. I did a half tuck with my shirt, but I wanted you to see how long it was in front if you don’t tuck at all.
The necklace I am wearing is also from Cato, it is a layered heart necklace. The length is long and this length looks great when you wear a jacket or blazer. They did not have any online, but they did have a similar one HERE. If you like this necklace, I would check out my local Cato, it was only $9.99! Here is a picture of the necklace in case you want to check it out.
I wore American Eagle Super Soft Super High Waisted Jeggings, these are the BEST wearing jeans I have ever worn. I like my jeans ladies and I have a lot of different styles, but these stay at the top of the rotation list. I love the coloring of these jeans, they have a bit of “wear” look on these. See the pictures right at my hips, you can see the lines that are faded looking. These are so, so soft and they hold you in and up in all the right places! That’s always a plus! If you don’t like them tight or snug, I would go a size up in these jeans. They are roomy enough, but if you feel uncomfortable with your pant legs fitting snug – go up a size. Get these jeans HERE.
If you are looking for a pair of jeans that are durable, yet very flattering and soft – these are some jeans you might want to think about. They are $49.95 and right now they are Buy 1 Get 1 50% OFF. Plus, if you join their rewards program, for every 5 pair of jeans you buy, you get 1 FREE. that’s how I got these jeans! I only paid for shipping!!
I decided to wear my Dusty Rose slippers (Jessica Style) from Sole Society with this outfit, but if you have purchase leopard print shoes this season, they would look so good with this outfit! Another “leopard print” idea is a scarf; wear the scarf with nude, blush or beige shoes – that would look very cute! These are well made and worth the $89.95, I purchased these with the AfterPay service Sole Society offers. They divide the total amount up into 4 payments and it’s much easier on the wallet.
This post is a casual everyday look, but if you throw a jacket on with it then your look will elevate instantly. this top would also look great with white jeans and if you’re out at night throw a denim jacket on. In fact, orange goes really well with gray if you have some gray slacks or gray denim. I have been really talking up jackets this month!
Mostly due to what I have seen in the Fashion Industry – so if you’re thinking about a white jacket, but want it more casual – go with a white denim jacket. This is a timeless piece and it will be a staple item in your wardrobe. It can carry you year-round honestly. I just talked myself into hitting Amazon and getting one LOL!! I’m getting this one, it’s just like the denim jacket I share sometimes. It is not a boxy cut, so it is a flattering style with plenty of stretch in it. I bought a Large. I am a little broader through the chest, so a Large fits perfect for me.
Thanks for all the coffee suggestions, I am definitely going to be getting some of all of them. You girls have a great Wednesday (Hump Day) and I want to leave you with something I heard on a movie Tuesday night. When I heard it, I wrote it down in my Notes on my phone – I did not want to forget this! I hope you girls like it
