Good morning, Monday! That was a fast weekend...but yesterday was a delight to celebrate the resurrection with dear people, so actually I'm starting the week feeling rather blessed. If you stop by here on a regular basis then you know that I link up with Greater than Rubies on Monday. The challenge this week was a Redress Challenge: Repair ~ giving life to a new piece. I had planned to skip this link up because I just wasn't sure what I would post. But as a thought about it on Sunday evening a ... Continue Reading...

It’s a Third Thursday

Every month has a third Thursday. That's an important day for my blogger friend Selah @ A Bibliophile's Style. Every third Thursday is a link up called Thoughtful Third Thursday. Basically, give a synopsis of what your reading, a short quote and create an outfit that corresponds to it. Such creativity! Now, I thought I was a reader until I met Selah. What I have realized is that I am a lover of books. I love books BUT I LIKE to read. I just don't accomplish all I desire to accomplish in the ... Continue Reading...

What I Wore…so far in Spring Style Me Challenge

What I Wore - Day 3 w/out cardigan

A few weeks ago I signed up for the Spring Style Me Challenge at Get Your Pretty On. Alison provided a list of items that she would be styling for 21 days. I had almost everything on the list except a maxi skirt. My mom took me shopping and bought it for me...honestly the exact skirt I had pictured in my mind. On Monday, the daily styles began. Here is my version of Monday's challenge: Jean jacket {Yes}, white skinnies (blue jeans}, a print blouse {pink gingham} + a statement necklace {Yes} ... Continue Reading...

It's Monday! Do you know what that means? Time to link up with Greater than Rubies. This week the for the Remix Rewear Restyle challenge, it's Double Duty. What piece do I wear multiple ways? This was such a no-brainer for me because my go to piece is a black cardigan. I have a couple black cardigans - a round neck and a v-neck. Typically, the round neck is my go to piece. Today I'm styling it with several tops underneath. ... Continue Reading...

When Plans Don’t Go As You Plan

There are definitely times when I make plans and move forward only to have a wrench thrown in there. That is what has happened with Tuesday Trades. We were just rocking along in March and I for one was having a blast. But here it is April and I have yet to mail those lovely blouses back to my daughter. I have an idea of what to send her but I just have not made it to the Post Office. Life hit me! And life hit her. She's in the processes of moving and we are in the process of getting my parents ...
