1. This top. I love it. I love the color and the length of the sleeves and the crochet bib. And hello….look how scrumptiously it matches my shoes. Yes. I just said scrumptiously. That's how much I love those shoes. And the best part…they were $10 bucks at Ross. And they are gen-u-ine leather. Back to the shirt though….can't wait to pair it with several skirts I have in my closet.
And it looks like it was born to be best friends with this favorite sweater of mine.
I'm kinda loving the look and the color. All of it. It was a keeper.
I had to get votes from the family on these. I mean, I liked the way they looked. I don't have any this slouchy so that was good but they were super big in the waist. And they are stretchy. Which translates that you can only wear them once and then you need to wash them and dry them. Now confession time: I usually wear my jeans a good 3 - 4 (sometimes 5) times before they get washed. So I was worried about these getting super stretched out and falling down and having to spend half my day pulling them up when I walk. (you know you know what I'm talking about) I checked with customer service and they now offer an exchange on sizes if they have them in stock. Holla! And they did have these in a size smaller. Holla! But the only thing is, that you can't return items that you exchanged for a different size. So instead of taking a gamble, I decided to keep the slightly too big jeans and have a nice comfortable pair I can throw in the dryer and not worry about them shrinking on me. Because a slightly too big pair of jeans is a 1000 times better than a slightly too small pair of jeans in my book any day.
And that amazing tee is from the sweetest JessicaNDesgns.
3. This sweater.
I loved it. Loved the color and texture. Very Fallish. Very "lets grab a caramel macchiato and walk in the leaves together" kind of feel to it.
I didn't have the time like I usually do to try it on with different outfits and take pics for y'all but I will be wearing this over several dresses with tights and boots real soon. Stay tuned.
4. This purse
I was in love with this purse. LOVED the color. Loved the styled…those zippers were so classy. But I gave up my big purses a couple of years ago and converted to smaller cross body bags. It was the most freeing thing I did. I gave up my need to be Mary Poppins and carry everything plus the kitchen sink in my purse. It was hard at first…not having 20 shades of lipstick, super glue, a screwdriver, mouthwash and whatever other "just in case" item you can think of. But I'm good now. I do have one gorgeous big bag a friend sent me that I adore and love and it is the only exception to my big bag recovery program. But I only have room for one in my life so I sent the big blue beauty back.
5. Last and definitely least… this shirt.
I din't even want to try it on. But I did for you inquiring minds who would feel gipped if you didn't get to see all five pieces in my little box. And I had to practice what I preach and try it on because like I always say…"you never know". But this time I did know. And I didn't like it. However, I did like the color of it though. But it went back.
Three out of five pieces were keepers. And they are great wardrobe builders that I can wear with a ton of other stuff in my closet. My stylist did good. Real good.
