Dark florals

Hello lovelies! Today I’m back with a gorgeous red and black floral A-line swingy top straight from Ross. Yep. I love that place. New clothing for less, what’s not to love? …The lines, actually. They don’t hire enough cashiers, so the lines are always long as everyone else wants to go there to save money as well. Le sigh. There always has to be that one thing you don’t like about your favorite place to shop…

Swingy A-line top, Ross; black skinny jeans courtesy of Mott & Bow, Betsey Johnson bow bag, also Ross; blingy flip flops, Marshall’s; earrings, made for me by a relative, similar kit here. (They have tiny photos of my mom as baby wearing a hula skirt. Squeee.)

I don’t know if you can see the detail in the earrings, but that is a photo of my mom in a hula skirt on the earrings.

It’s been nice to start venturing out into the world without a mask again now that Oregon has lifted the mask mandate except for health care settings. Which is where I work. I realize there are new variants of the coronavirus out there to watch out for and one can never be too careful. Still, it is nice to see people’s faces again, instead of just their eyes.

I hope you all stay cool out there. Oregon recently hit new high temps of 115 degrees. Yikes. Leave those temps for the states down south of us, please.

Blossom print in a field of blossoms

Spring is coming. Yeah! (I say, after it was just snowing yesterday.) So is the Coronavirus. Boo. However, I found a wonderful field of flowers to jump in a couple of weeks ago. So I jumped. For joy. In the middle of my sorrow. It’s okay to find joy where you can when grieving. And that’s what I did. I see a field of flowers. I jump. I may have been crying a few days later and missing my mom, but it’s all good. I jump while I’m able to.

Blossom print bow tie top, Ross; purple corduroy leggings, Ross, gray fringed poncho cardigan, given to me; pink Kate Spade New York handbag, gifted to me, similar here; rose gold sunglasses, Marshall’s, Shoes hidden in the flowers, Kohl’s; fuchsia flower earrings, old.

This top is perfect for spring. Floral, peach and fuchsia with a bow at the top – what’s not to like? I found both the blouse and corduroy leggings at Ross, so you know I got them at a very good price. Since it’s still cold out, I had a gray fringed cardigan on as well. My bright pink Kate Spade New York handbag was another splash of color to an already bright outfit. Just right for an early spring day.

 

 

Everyone stay healthy and well out there. God help us all.
