Last Saturday, my daughter and I went to a local Farmers Market here in Abingdon. It was sooo cold, and I was bundled up in a puffer coat that I bought in early fall at Talbots. There weren’t many vendors, but there were still plenty of goodies to choose from. I was drawn to the freeze-dried candy, but my daughter dragged me off before I could buy a freezer full. Lol!

Instead, she dragged me to a gentleman named Walter, who was selling micro-greens. I’m sure that is a fancy term that means the plants are grown in small containers instead of the ground. The next thing I know, she has him snipping off leaves from a purple radish plant and is handing me a few sprigs to try. Next, he snips off tendril peas sprigs and gave them to me to eat. I was shocked at how tasty the sprigs were, but I was starting to feel like a rabbit. Lol! Guess who ended up coming home with micro-greens and NO freeze-dried candy?

You have to admit; these do look tasty!!!

Since today is Wednesday, it is time for Hit or Miss. I bring an outfit to you each week and let you be the stylist. Every outfit has parts that you will love and parts that you are not to your liking. Thankfully, we all don’t like the same things, or we would all be dressing alike and have no individual style.

The first item that I’m showing you is this colorblock cardigan. There were several color choices and designs, but I decided to try this neutral-colored one. I like the length of this cardigan that hits me about the knee, and I love the light camel, gray, and charcoal dark gray of the sweater. It is a decent quality sweater and well worth the $32.00 for it. It seems to run true to size; I’m wearing a medium.

Here is the side view that shows the length of the cardigan. The cardigan doesn’t button in the front, but it does have POCKETS! Lol!

Today, my jewelry is all gold (not surprising), and two of the items are new. I got a package in the mail from Kendra Scott, and the Adeline Chain Necklace, the Adeline Hoop Earrings, and the Danielle Gold Link Earrings in Mother of Pearl (not shown) were in it. Usually, I steer clear of shorter necklaces and only wear my Gold Vermeil 18 Kt. Gold Cross Necklace. But I love how the Adeline Chain Necklace looks with my cross necklace; it feels a void perfectly!!!

I will admit that I sometimes struggle with colorbocked items because I can’t decide what color shirt or sweater to wear underneath. Today, I chose to wear a sweater in the shade or two darker than the light camel. I bought the Forever V-Neck Sweater in camel brown earlier this fall, and I’ve found many opportunities to wear it this year. The sweater comes in many other colors, and it is on sale for 50% off! I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me great.

I know many of you are not fans of distressed jeans, and that’s fine. We all don’t have to like the same thing, and I’ll link below to some similar jeans without distressing. The jeans that I am wearing are Curvy High-Waisted O.G. Straight Ripped Jeans for women. These fit loose through the hips and thighs but are snug in the waist. I’m wearing a size 8 since these are the curvy version, and they fit fine everywhere except for the waist.

Loafers and flats are what a LOT of you are asking for me to style. I tend to go toward heels, so I am ordering in a few flats to see if I can incorporate them into my outfits. These leather loafers have a unique buckle feature that keeps them from looking like every other loafer out there. I always look for unique features when shopping for clothing, shoes, etc. These loafers were purchased in early fall, and this color is not available, but there is a pearl version that would be perfect for spring and summer. These run TTS.

I bought this Artsy Louis Vuitton handbag a couple of years ago through The Real Real. The Real Real is a high-end consignment shop where you can buy designer handbags, clothing, etc., and the product is authenticated to be real. When my daughter was here (2019), she asked if she could take the handbag with her. She never carries a handbag, so I immediately said, yes! She brought it back to me when she arrived earlier this month, and it looks like it has never been carried. Lol! Oh, well, I’m happy to carry it even if she didn’t.

Here are handbags that look similar to Louis Vuitton if you don’t want to make that kind of investment in a handbag.
