Coral & brown two ways

As you can probably tell, I’ve been pretty unmotivated as far as the blog goes. I’ve been trying to get through a rough patch & keep my head down to get past Mother’s Day. All of these first holidays are hard to deal with after someone you love passes away, Mother’s Day being especially hard because I no longer have a mother here on planet earth.

I’ve been stressed out and overwhelmed at work. Breaking down left and right. Can’t ever seem to catch up anymore due to the extra things we are doing behind the scenes to keep things going after Covid19. I’m pretty much done with it all.

I’m sure some of you are at that point as well. Whether your staying at home, or out in the working world right now. Just done with it.

I don’t really have any new and exciting outfits to post, however a friend gave me a bag of clothes that I thought I’d pick something out of to feature. This post is all about the color theme: coral & dark chocolate brown.

First look:

Coral sweater & coral t-shirt, given to me, chocolate brown capris, old, The Loft; high heel sandals, old; Betsey Johnson Cat ear sunglasses, old; Shell necklace, old, from Papua New Guinea.

Second look featuring the same color pattern:

Coral sweater, given to me; dark brown pants, old, leopard print ballet flats, Ross; Betsey Johnson cat ear sunglasses, old; shell and seed necklace, Papua New Guinea, brown metallic DKNY watch, old.

And if I’m doing photos near my home, the cats want to be involved. Or maybe not. Perhaps I decide they are too cute to not include in the post somehow. Look at those fluffy furbabies! The one in the first look is Sheba, and the one in the second look is Isis. Best accessories ever, amirite? (Minus the claws when they want to get away.)

What to wear for a Mother’s Day brunch

Do you have a Mother’s Day brunch planned for you mother this year? Or a church brunch, family brunch, friends to get together with for a Mother’s Day tea or brunch? Here’s some ideas on what to wear for a Mother’s Day brunch!

~ Flowers are always in because Mother’s Day is in spring and mother’s love flowers. Or most do. So bring out your floral tops, skirts and dresses.

~ Pastels are still in, because, again, spring.

~ Casual but cute is always a good way to go because brunch is not as formal as a dinner. Why not wear those comfortable jeans with a nice blouse and nice shoes?

~ Cute accessories. Purses, earrings, necklaces, ect. I’m not really big into bracelets because they really bug me flopping around on my arm for some reason, yet I wear my watch every day even though I can now look at my phone for the time, and it doesn’t bug me at all. Huh. Not sure what’s up with that.

~ A maxi skirt or dress is another cute but stylish way to go.

~ Cold shoulder tops and ruffle or bell sleeves are pretty in right now. Just be careful not to get those big bell sleeves in your plate of food!

~ Capri’s and a cute tee are another fun way to go.

~ Throw on a lightweight cardigan or a cute jacket just in case it’s too cool wherever you’re having brunch and you’re good to go!

I’m looking at the skirt in the photos below thinking I would probably end up getting food all over it. Perhaps denim is a better way to go. They say jeans never get dirty, right?  (Unless they’re white or pale colored ones. Ha.)
