Coffee Talk 01.29.23

outfit details

Good morning! It’s been a quiet week over here, as Paul was traveling for work, and it seems like Becca is never home anymore. When she doesn’t have band-related activities, she’s usually out with friends.

I miss her, but I’m just so happy she’s been able to get back to normal and have a typical high school experience after that strange Covid year… or, rather, two Covid years. Some days it seems so long ago, and other days I marvel that we ever got back to normal.

While it was a quiet week in some ways, it was also very busy, so it felt short. I flew back from Virginia early Monday morning and hit the ground running. I had an appointment that afternoon, and then I went to Bible study the next day, where I reconnected with an old friend. That was super fun!

I also went and had a Geneo facial one day, as I’m trying to rejuvenate my tired winter skin for my trip to Florida in a few weeks. You can google it if you want more information, but it uses special equipment that’s designed to exfoliate and hydrate and brighten, by triggering a natural oxygenation process within the skin.

Suffice it to say, my skin looks and feels so incredibly soft and radiant, and I’m definitely going to do it again. I really can’t say if it’s more effective than a typical facial, but they’re the same price. I just wish I’d waited another week or two, and done it closer to my trip, but it’s probably close enough.

I also wanted to let you all know that those Tory Burch Chelsea boots have been restocked! They have most sizes available, as of this morning.

The more I wear these boots, the more I love them. I traveled to Virginia and back in them last weekend and wore them exclusively except for church on Sunday. They were comfortable right off the bat, but they’re breaking in beautifully, just as I expected them to.

They’re true to size, unless you like to wear thick socks, and then you may want to size up. I usually wear my Sheec boot socks or my J.Crew cashmere crew socks with them.

Okay, that’s it for me. I need to cut this short because I’m trying to be more intentional about fitting in time for exercise in the mornings. Have a blessed Sunday!

And go, Eagles! 💚🦅💚

  1. Happy Sunday and GO EAGLES! I want you to know I will be wearing an Eagles jersey/hoodie that I purchased through your link a few years ago (or was it just last year??) when you had a cute blog post with Paul and your NFL gear!! It’s my favorite Eagles top, feminine cut, simple logo on the front and wonderful fabric!! Checked on the Tory Burch black boots and they didn’t have my size, 9-1/2. 🙁 They are stunning!!

  2. I am not a shopper, so your blog has been so helpful to me! I was wondering if you could help me find a pair of straight fit (vintage look) full-length jeans that would looks good with athletic shoes. I have a bunch of track meets coming up and I want my ankles covered because it will still be cold here in the midwest, and I want to be able to wear comfortable shoes. Mid-rise is also a must since I will be doing a lot of sitting in the stands. My measurements and figure are very similar to yours. Thanks!

  3. I look forward to your Coffee Talk posts all week! I have a busy week ahead, and just learned my oldest (high school senior) decided to quit his trumpet lessons. They really are no longer necessary, as he’s not going to be in band after high school, and really now the year will be starting to wrap up. I just can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that he’s graduating. (I need to plan my outfits for the graduation, and the party we are planning for the next day!) Anyway that’s enough blathering from me. Have a blessed week!

    1. I quite violin lessons in my senior year of high school and my mom was so disappointed… I had played since I was 7! But I knew I wasn’t continuing in college, and I was over it. 🙂 I’m sure he feels the same. It’s very strange, the next stage of life for these kids. I won’t lie, it’s not easy, but it is also really cool to see them gain independence and confidence and learn to fly. 🙂

  4. Hi Jo Lynne! I think your skin always looks beautiful, but I know that it’s different for you when you look in the mirror. As I’m local, would you be able to tell me where you got your Geneo facial.
