Wrap Wonder!

Hello friends!

How are you all doing?? I hope you are well and thanks for reading or following my blog! This has sure been a fun road!

Today I wanted to share my newfound yellow dress! I’ve been on the hunt a couple months for a yellow dress- I’ve found several but style/size/length somehow hasn’t worked. It’s been a (buy the dress- I’ve bought two at Target)-then next day return for reasons listed above. (For some reason I really don’t like trying on items in the dressing room of a store-that annoys me) so I’m constantly or often returning ill fitting items that look good on a hanger. 😂

So late (9pm for me 🤣) I checked out some emails arriving earlier in the day and discovered one from someone I follow: Rach Parcell who launched her own clothing line. Amazingly enough I discovered a yellow gingham wrap dress that was in my budget (her every day line-less expensive) and yellow, along with wrap style (flatters my figure) and ruffles! Checks all the boxes right ??

I have to admit I ordered it that night and was excited when I got it two days later! It’s seriously a darling dress and I paired it with some pearl earrings, pearl necklace for church (no necklace for work) and my new white wedges from Amazon Prime Wardrobe! (I’ve wore the dress twice since I got it- and I think when the season cools I could wear it with my jean jacket and my blue cowboy boots and be super cute!)

I added a link to the dress and wedges so you can buy if you’ve been searching like me!

Have a great day friends!Rachel Parcell Cheery Gingham Dress

Do Geese attack? (selfie concerns)

Hello friends! Happy Thursday!

My second favorite day of the week is Thursday! Yay! How is everyone doing?? I hope you all are having a great week and have some fun weekend plans 🙂

I thought I would share a couple of favorite outfits from this week and my concerns taking pictures this morning: DO GEESE ATTACK??

This morning I was at a location close to my employment (same suburb) and this area has a little creek, lots of trees, and a couple of pretty brick bridges. I love this area, it’s so pretty in the middle of huge office buildings…interesting huh? So I got out of my car to take pictures and there are several geese by me and a weird thought pops in my mind…do geese attack? Should I be worried?

I mean, I’m normally a very cautious person, (except on the freeway); I don’t get close to Bison in Yellowstone National Park or hang over the edge of the cliff at Grand Canyon National Park, but I don’t quite know how to deal with geese. Should I be cautious? Are they going to chase me? Granted I don’t think they’re vicious right? Are they going to squack me to death? Will they flap their wings and blow me away? Not likely but these are odd thoughts running through my mind as I take pictures! Does anyone else think like this or am I the only one?? LOL The things that pop in my mind would probably concern other people!

Anyway here are a couple of my favorite outfits this week. My first one happened by accident! I found this darling spring plaid shirt at Target and realized I have earrings (Also Target) to match, then I thought about wearing white jeans (JCPenney) to make the color in the shirt pop, but it was a little chilly so I wondered what jacket to pick…..my eyes set on my destroyed jean jacket from Forever21 and then I realized I have a coral bag (JCPenney) that perfectly matches the shirt and earrings. The only thing I missed is coral lipstick, interesting I don’t have that color….I’m not sure if it would match my skin tone but now I need to find one right?? It’s a need….

Today (geese picture episode) I have to dress more professional as I have meetings with adults (LOL) but I’m still wearing a pop of color -my red pants (AnnTaylor- old) with my black/white gingham shirt by Express and tassel earrings also Express. I added my black moto jacket by OldNavy because it’s again a little cloudy and chilly 😦 but even though it’s cloudy I still dress my personality with the pop of color and fun print!

YAY FOR FUN PRINTS RIGHT??

Everyone have a happy Thursday!

Fashion and Health? (Not the same unfortunately)

Hello friends,

So I’m still not feeling well and had this idea that it might be good to get out and get some fresh air…I thought maybe the sunshine and fresh air would help me feel better as laying on a couch has NOT LOL..

So I drove to Target which usually has an invigorating effect (I thought walking around would give me some energy, seriously this is the worse flu I have ever experienced-my head and eye socket still hurt-probably TMI). Even though my plan did not help, I found some wonderful items at Target! and quickly came home to lay back down (of course).

I found a darling pair of black/white checked flats with bows that were on clearance, which will go so cute with this green, black/white floral patterned dress. I also tried on a long lavender cardigan (so spring) and a striped pink button up shirt and some pearl studded jeans (also on clearance). I found some great fashion deals, tried out my fresh air experiment, and got some sunshine; although still feel poorly. (Back at home, watching Sherlock Holmes-Robert Downey Jr/Jude Law style-gotta love Guy Ritchie).

I recommend each of you run to Target, even if you feel ill. They have some great deals, check out the clearance aisles in shoes and clothes!
