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.

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.

Metallic Pleats and scallops

Silver and gold metallic heels

Much to my surprise, I got on here to do another blog post and they totally changed the outline so I can’t even figure out what to do. Holy crapoli! I hate it when they do that. I decided to do what anyone should do in my situation, just dive in and attempt to figure it all out as I go. Bear with me. *(I had to get help disabling Gutenberg and returning my blog back to the classic editor layout I’m used to.)

Fuchsia pleated top, black scalloped edge skirt, metallic heels + leather jacket and black gloves

This week, I’ve combined two trends I’ve been loving lately. One, pleats: mostly I’ve been seeing them in skirts, but this top is pretty fun as well. Metallic. Fuchsia. Pleats + bling buttons = a win. In my book.

This skirt is a classic from Ann Taylor Loft a few years ago. I love the embroidery near the bottom and along the  edges. Plus the uneven scalloped edge.

The silvery-gold heels I found at Shop Girl Consignment.

Everything else, I already owned.

Sometimes I like to twirl. This cute little purse is a vintage one and the strap was loose, so at some point the whole thing went flying as the strap came off on one side. Wah. Wah. Wah.

I’m trying to fix it. ^ I couldn’t do it on the fly.

I gave up on the cute little purse. I was just holding it in this photo. Ha. Sometimes fashion falls apart on us. It’s all good.

We also got to watch a heron flying over head and land in a tree nearby. He stayed there the whole time we were taking photos, then flew off just before we left. I missed seeing him fly away as I was probably busy trying to fix my purse. Or hunt for the pin that had been holding one of the straps in place so I could pin in back together. (A good hint that your vintage purse needs fixing is when you see a pin stuck in it to hold the strap on. Ignore that sign at your own peril… Hahaha.)
