When it rains, it pours

after these message

I’ve had quite the eventful couple of weeks.  So much of it is not my story to tell, but I will say, the fog is starting to lift.  Thank Heavens!

A new fave

This is my new uniform top. I’ve seen it advertised under many different names: henley, tunic, popover, whichever, I’m in love.  It’s basically a rayon, collarless shirt. 


I have all 4 of these pictured.  The first one is Old Navy, the other three are Loft.  (The last one is not really the same style but I added it anyway, Ikat in a top, uh yes please)

The versatility of it has been making it really easy to get dressed.  It works for the office and weekends as well as with skinnies, slacks even a skirt.  E-Z  I tell ya.

It’s comfy and feminine without being stuffy.  (Just like me)

Tuck it in or leave it out.  (I mostly leave it out). 

Roll the sleeves.  Wear them long.  (A girl needs options, but I’m a roller)

Dress it up.  Or rock with flats.  (I’m in a flats phase of life and I’m ok with that).

Add a scarf or necklace.  (I’ve tried both, cuteness)

And most importantly, always, always, wait for the sale.  Old Navy and Loft are notorious for sales, I get different discounts via email every.other.day.  I’ve seen a few at Target too but they haven’t gone on sale just yet. 

I’m always a little behind on the style curve, but if you’re anything like me, you’re just trying to stay out of the mom jeans and you will love this top, trust me.

So many works in progress

snow cone machine

My snow cone table is coming to a close.  Yesterday, our area hit 40+ degrees and one good sunny day pretty much melted it all.  Today called for rain, so I’m pretty sure my slushy lemonade nights have come to a close.  Good thing warmer weather comes with that, heeeeey!

Kitchen Counter

This(!) has been the kitchen counter for far too long.  Coupons, magazines, catalogs, circulars and mail - all waiting to be sorted & purged.  Tonight, hopefully

Just after Valentines Day, the folks at LG came and pronounced our washer dead.  After weather delays the replacement was successfully installed yesterday.  So this week, no trip to the laundromat, although, I have to admit it was a good learning experience for my children. 

Real quick, Pottery Barn is a catalog fave.  I have borrowed their books at the library multiple times.  I was pleasantly surprised when I found their books on Amazon today for .01 (plus $4 s&h), .01!!  Yes, they are used, but these are sturdy hardback books for a penny.  I know physical media is on a decline but if you like to finger through pages check it out, they are great for inspiration.
