Good morning, friends! I’m doing my best not to start out this post with a weather report, but it really is almost laughable by now. It is yet. another. rainy. Sunday.
I think we should ditch our plans to move a few miles away and start looking at homes in the Pacific northwest. They’ve probably had more sunny days this spring than we have.
So yesterday was fairly productive. Paul and I took a walk in the morning, and we packed up a few boxes of books. I made some good headway on my son’s graduation slideshow, got all of my clothing returns from the past couple months boxed up and ready to ship, and shopped for the summer clothes the kids were wanting.
Last night Paul and I decided to go out for an impromptu date night. There’s a French bistro nearby that we like frequent — the restaurant isn’t our favorite, but they have a cool bar area, and you can call ahead and reserve a high top, which is nice because it’s always crowded. If you get there before 6PM, you get Happy Hour prices, so we usually go around 5:30.
They have good cocktails and a nice wine list — I guess the beer selection is good too, but that’s not my thing. I also love their appetizers — particularly the cheese and charcuterie plate. We get that almost every time we go.
We hadn’t been out alone together since Paul’s diverticulitis episode and all of the house buying/selling craziness, so it was nice to sit and chat without interruptions.
Of course, as soon as we left the house, it started to rain… because not only has it rained almost every Sunday this spring, it has also rained (or snowed) every single time we have had a date night since December. I know this because Paul bought me fancy designer suede pumps for Christmas, and I haven’t been able to wear them yet. It’s killing me slowly… haha!
I told him last night, the next dry day we have, I don’t care if it’s the weekend or not, I’m going to make him take me out somewhere so I can wear them.
Anyway. Let’s move on to fashion-related topics…
Adore Your Wardrobe Registration
Registration for the next session of Adore Your Wardrobe opens today!
For the uninitiated, this is an online course designed by Kelly Snyder to help you demystify fashion with the principles of math and science. Kelly teaches the science and math, formulas and rules behind creating an amazing looking silhouette on your individual body.
Taking the Adore Your Wardrobe course made SUCH a difference in how I view my body and how I dress myself. Don’t believe me? Look back through my blog archives, and see the outfits I was wearing 3 and 4 and 5 years ago. YIKES!!!
I don’t always get it perfect now, but I’ve come a long way, and AYW was a big part of that evolution.
In this course, you start by determining your unique body type, and then you learn what styles and colors look best on you and how to put outfits together that create proper balance and proportion.
I’ve had people ask me to address these topics on the blog, and I try to slip some tips in here and there, but there is no substitute for the personal attention you get in a course like this. Plus I’d never want to compromise Kelly’s course by sharing information here that is for paid members only.
I do always try to be mindful of that, but honestly, there is so much about this course that is personalized to your individual body type that it’s impossible to convey even a fraction of it in blog post format. You really need to take the course to know how to apply the information.
In fact, it’s not just a course; it’s actually a community. When you register for Adore Your Wardrobe, you will be added to a private Facebook Group where Kelly and her team members offer you personal advice to make sure you get the most out of the course, and you also end up bonding with other course members and learning from each other.
You may be wondering if this course is for you. Basically, this course is for anyone who isn’t 100% confident about putting outfits together and dressing her unique body.
If you feel like you have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear, this course is for you.
If you struggle to put outfits together, this course is for you.
If you love shopping and fashion but get discouraged when your clothes don’t look as good on you as you expected them to, this course is for you.
If you hate shopping and need some trusted formulas to make getting dressed every day and looking good a breeze, this course is for you.
No matter where you are in your fashion journey, this course will transform the way you think about clothes and how you put outfits together.

I also took Course #2, which builds on Course #1, and it was amazing as well. In fact, I often say that’s when everything really came together for me. So if you’re a Course #1 graduate who is debating about Course #2, I highly recommend going for it.
If you’ve already taken the course, feel free to chime in and let us know how you liked it.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
