Two ways to style a striped tunic

With a couple of quick changes, this outfit can be dressed up or down. If you’re at work, or out and about on a weekend and need to switch to a more dressy look without stopping at home again –  here are a couple of things you can bring with you for a quick day to night change.

White House | Black Market striped tunic top, gifted to me; White stretchy pants, Kohl’s; White belt with double hearts, c/o Dresslily; Hot pink Kate Spade New York Sam handbag, c/o; Heart necklace, old; Heart sunglasses, Ross; Wedge sandals, Rue21; View of the Columbia River Gorge with Crown Point / Vista House, priceless.

 

I started out with no belt, a denim jacket and flat leopard print Sam Edelman sandals for a more casual day look.

I brought with me my cute little double heart belt from Dresslily, now sold out. (More heart belts here.)   And I brought a pair of wedge sandals. Then I ditched the jacket. That’s it. Super quick day to night change.

Then we tried to find a place with no people. Despite the threat of Covid19, that was actually pretty hard to do considering it was late morning by the time we set out on a nice cool summery weekend day. We ended up finding a place at the end of the Portland Women’s Forum with people further away, but a snake in the bushes. Oh my. Let’s see how fast I can walk in my wedge sandals on uneven ground to get away once I spotted a snake slithering into the bushes. I didn’t run, but got away pretty fast, I must say.

I hope you all are staying safe out there and avoiding crowds like the plague just as we are doing. We even decided as a family not to go out to Michigan for the interment of my moms ashes this week due to Covid. Too much of a risk and we already lost one family member this year. Here’s to being safe and keeping the other family members alive and kicking if at all possible!

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.)
