Blue tiered maxi dress and cherry blossoms

Hope you all had a lovely Easter. The rain has finally stopped for a bit here in Oregon. So out we went in search of cherry blossoms that hadn’t been pounded right off the trees by all the rain and wind. If you seek, you may still find some. We did.

I found this cute denim blue tiered, smocked waist dress at Ross. I saw it about a month ago, and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so had to retrace my steps back to the Ross I saw it at to see if it was still there. Oh joy! It was. Of course, I have a gift card to spend at TJ Max, Marshall’s or Home Goods, and haven’t been able to find anything there, but found three things at Ross. Isn’t that how it always goes? And this is why I hate gift cards so much. Hate is a pretty strong word. I dislike gift cards. I’d rather spend my money wherever I find stuff. Perhaps another day or another time I’ll find something to use my gift card on…

Winter blues

I always associate the color blue with January. Not sure why. Because your lips, fingers and toes turn blue when you’re cold? Who knows? I’m not the only one associating blue with January, so it must be something someone started a long time ago that we have programmed in our little brains.

I thought I’d take some photos in my winter blues in my living room. Mainly because I got to be on set last week and got my hair done up real cute and in my living room because I didn’t have time to do a photo shoot done outdoors. Plus, it was really cold last week.

I was on set again later that week, but since I was on standby for the next day and I got home real late, I had to take the hairdo down and get ready for the next day, just in case. I had a side cinnamon roll Princess Leia hairdo the second day. Ha. So much fun seeing what type of hairdo you’ll get on set…

This hairdo is on day two, I covered it with a scarf and tried to fix up the stray hairs that got out of place as best as I could.

This is a casual every day look, but adding in the hairdo and some pearl earrings makes it classy casual. Throw on some knee high taupe colored wedge boots and you’re ready to run some errands and not look like a total slob doing it. (I confess, most of my errand running days are spent looking a mess in my sweats and a sweatshirt, but it’s all good.)

What are your favorite go-to’s for a casual day look? Do you wear jeans and a t-shirt, or sweatpants and sweatshirts in the winter? Leggings, knee high boots and a long sweater or tunic are another favorite of mine during the cold months.
