I read somewhere that pedal pushers would be trending this spring. While I don’t really see that trend taking off, I was asked to style a pair so I thought I’d give it a shot.
Now that our kids are older and can be by themselves for a few hours, Paul and I often go out to dinner as a way to get out of the house… and to save me from having to cook! Working from home most of the time, I don’t have a reason to get gussied up very often so I like to use these date nights as an opportunity dress up a bit. This floral off-the-shoulder top is a perfect example of what I look for in a “date night top” — it’s flirty and fun and a step above the tops I typically wear to run errands around town.
I love the juxtaposition of shorts with a long-sleeve or 3/4-sleeve top, so I’m styling white denim shorts with pink tie hem sweater and gold sandals.
You know when a box arrives on your doorstep and inside is a dress you ordered online… It isn’t your typical silhouette, but you loved the material and and the colors and you decided to take a chance. You open the box and hold up the dress, and the material is gorgeous — even prettier in person than it appeared online. You cross your fingers, hoping it fits. You can’t wait to find out, so you run upstairs and throw it on… and it fits PERFECTLY. Like it was made for you. Well, that’s the story of this dress.
Greetings and happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a good weekend. My son is all graduated, his party is over, and it’s time to start thinking about the next phase — moving and getting him off to college! These are exciting times, but as with any change of season, it feels bittersweet. I’m sharing more in today’s post.
I wanted to post try-ons from some of my online orders and my latest Trunk Club delivery, but that will have to wait for another day. I just didn’t have time to pull all that together this morning. Instead, I’m sharing the outfits I wore this past week.
This outfit could be work wear for some office environments, or in my case, it’s something I’d wear to church. This lacy flare sleeve top from Ann Taylor is great for those ladies who get cold when indoors as well as those who like to keep their arms somewhat covered, and it’s 40% off!
