Good morning, friends! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Ours was fun but busy (thus no Coffee Talk post yesterday.)
Somehow the fact that Easter is next weekend totally crept up on me. We are traveling to Virginia to be with my family and going out to eat after church on Sunday morning, and I just realized on Friday that my kids have nothing appropriate to wear. I’m all set, of course, but we have a case of Cobbler’s Children Syndrome. You know — the cobbler’s children have no shoes. (Or in my case, the fashion blogger’s children have no clothes. LOL!)
So I spent the better part of Saturday shopping with my girls, trying to find Easter dresses and spring sandals. They are 14 and 11 years old, and anyone with girls that age can attest to how difficult it is to find dresses that are a) appropriate and b) they like and want to wear. We did luck out and find sandals for my youngest at Payless and a pretty dress at Target (she can still fit in the size 16 in the girls’ department) but we struck out with my older daughter on all counts. It’s getting too late to order online, and we leave tomorrow, so I’m feeling the crunch. Thank goodness for 17-year-old boys. All I need for my son are khakis and a button-down shirt, and he’s set. Anyway, that endeavor monopolized much of our weekend.
This morning, I had to hit the ground running because I have a lot to do to get ready to go out of town tomorrow, but I’m sure it will all work out. It always does, right?
Meanwhile, I have another outfit for you! This is the outfit I wore our first day in Savannah. I knew we’d be doing a lot of walking, and it was supposed to be in the high 70s by lunchtime, so I wanted to be comfortable.
I’ve been asked to show some casual looks that don’t involve blue jeans, so I ordered these Gap girlfriend twill chinos in the Pink Cameo. Wouldn’t you know it, this color has already been discontinued, but there are tons of other colors to choose from. (They are still available on the Canadian site, if you’re in Canada.)
I do not love this outfit. For one thing, I should have rolled the cuffs on the pants one more time to make them slightly shorter. Plus they felt like they were falling down all day long. It’s possible that they’re too big, but they’re a size 6 and I can’t imagine wearing a 4, but maybe that’s what I need. I also think I need a more fitted shirt to make this outfit work.
I like this Jersey shirred V-neck top a lot, but it looks better with shorts or skinny jeans. It has a relaxed fit and a slight A-line shape to it, so it’s more flattering with something more form-fitting on the bottom.
While I don’t like the silhouette this outfit creates, I do like the muted color palette a lot. It was perfect for a warm spring day in Savannah. I added grey ballet flats and a grey crossbody, and I accessorized with silver jewelry.
These pictures were taken at our resort, The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. We had to take a ferry across the Savannah River to the downtown area, which you can see behind me.
While it was a bit of a hassle to get over and back a couple times a day, we enjoyed spending both afternoons at the resort pool, reading and relaxing and sipping margaritas. It was nice to get away from the city for a bit and feel like we were on vacation. This trip was about 50/50 work and vacation, so when we were in vacation mode, we really wanted to be able to relax and enjoy our time away, and the resort allowed us to do that. I would definitely stay there again.
