Stripes and ruffles

I love stripes. And polka dots. And leopard print. But today we’re talking stripes with this little striped peasant blouse. Super cute with the little ruffled sleeves. I think I wore this once on set as an extra, but was so covered over with other stuff, you couldn’t really see it. Let alone me. Life as an extra…

I’ve been meaning to take a trip down to Edgefield in Troutdale. I finally made it down there earlier this month. Caught the last of the fall colors. I should have gone earlier, but I’m glad I went before all the pretty autumn leaves fell off the trees. I still have yet to get some cajun tater tots while there. If you haven’t tried them, you’ll have to try them at one of the Mcmenamins in the Portland metro area that makes them. They are the bomb!

 

Thank you for stopping by, and keep praying for my mom. She is done with radiation but still in a lot of pain. They are trying to get the trial drug approved through a patient assistant program so she hasn’t started that yet. Prayers that everything goes smoothly during this new phase of her cancer treatment and her pain starts going away. We are not sure what shape her lower ilium bone is in now that the tumor is gone. That will just have to start the healing up on it’s own. They’ll do another cat scan a month after radiation treatment ended so we’ll get a better idea then what we are dealing with still.

Pink Bow Back Top – #fashionfriday

Loving this pink bow back top! I think the hardest thing to decide when ordering this product is what color to buy. I loved the color choices for this! I finally narrowed it down to the bright pink or the black one with the leopard print bow on the back, and eventually went with the hot pink one. They also had an orange, a yellow (not my favorites) or a blue. I really liked the blue as well, but had ordered a different shirt in a beautiful royal blue and didn’t want another blue one just yet. The blue for this was more of a cobalt blue – so it was different, and I really loved it as well. The bright pink color was just too fun to pass up though – on the other hand, leopard print bow, right? It was a tough choice.

My shirt arrived fairly quickly – which is always a good thing. The material is a wonderful lightweight chiffon – perfect for summer evenings, and the bow is adorable! I would definitely recommend this item to anyone else looking to buy it. Good luck choosing between all the wonderful colors, though!

Although I did receive this item at a discounted rate to review it, all opinions expressed are my own and I would definitely buy this item again in another color. With the leopard print bow next time, of course! You can find this item here: Bow Top

Don’t laugh at the keychain with all of those store points cards on it. I didn’t notice it was in my pocket for a while and some of my best shots were with the keys in my pocket, so we’re going to go with it. It’s a new cool trend, right? Yeah. Let’s pretend anyway…
