HIT OR MISS WITH STRIPES AND STATEMENT SLEEVES
I went back and forth with myself, trying to decide if or what to say about the horrific shooting yesterday in Texas. My blog isn’t a news outlet, and I’m sure that you already know about the shooting that took the lives of at least 15 innocent people. I want to say that my heart aches for the families involved, and I can’t imagine their pain. They are all in my prayers, and I know they can use all of the prayers that they can get.
I don’t watch television, and I hardly ever see a news article when I am on the internet. I wasn’t even aware of the shooting until my sister mentioned it late last night, and then I was upset the whole afternoon. Joe tells me that I am like an Ostrich and that I keep my head buried in the sand. I’m okay with being an Ostrich; I hate knowing there are people in our world, and possibly in our communities, that are that evil.
After much consideration, I decided to do a blog post today. Fashion is what my blog is about, so let’s get into the fashion for today. On Wednesday, I try to do a Hit or Miss post; this is when you leave a comment on what you like about the outfit and what part wouldn’t work for your body shape. Today’s Linen Flutter Sleeve Tee is super cute, and I love the unique sleeve detail. This 100% linen tee is perfect for summer and is cool in the heat of the day. I’m wearing a size 1, and the top fits great.
The Summer White Coral Necklace and matching Summer White Seed Bead Bracelet are one of my favorites that I’ve gotten this year. Years ago, I passed up buying a vintage coral necklace, and I’ve grieved over missing out on the necklace. This one isn’t genuine vintage coral, but it is still gorgeous.
You can see the cute flutter sleeve detail in this photo and the length of the tee.
I am loving pants this year; you might have already noticed that. Lol! The Linen Button Hem Striped Crops have a great button detail that sets them apart from the rest. These are 100% linen and have a relaxed fit. I love the pull-on waist that only has elastic in the back. I’m wearing a size 1, and the crops fit perfectly.
Look how cute this small Alabastor Woven Leather Crossbody Bag is! I love the woven leather detail and the tassel accent. The bag is 8x8x4.5, but my iPhone 12 Pro Max had difficulty fitting inside the bag. I have a large wallet case on my phone, and once I took off the wallet case, the phone fit in the bag.
I am so thrilled that Chicos is now carrying shoes!!! The three pairs I have are so cute, and I love all of them. This Lambskin Leather White Beaded T-Strap Sandal has been one that I keep reaching for since it goes with everything. The square toe style has been trending for a while, but I’ve not been a fan. I like a pointy toe since it makes your legs look longer. But, I must admit that this sandal is winning me over, and I might jump on the bandwagon. I’m wearing my usual size 9, so the sandals run TTS.
This photo was taken this past weekend when my DIL and I went to the Omni Grove Park Inn. I hope to share more pictures of the hotel, etc., later. It was a beautiful place, and the scenery was breathtaking. When we got our luggage, the bellhop said, “wow, you got the good room.” We looked at him, confused, and he explained that we were in the room where F. Scott Fitzgerald stayed the summers of 1935 and 1936. That was pretty darn cool!!!
I hope you liked today’s post. If so, PLEASE remember to pin my post on Pinterest.
