Here we are back on Monday! I hope you all had a fun weekend! We (I) had too much wine this weekend! I try to curtail it, but I can’t say no when we go out for dinner or are with friends. I have been warned by my oncologist that it is probably not the best thing for me, but life is short and I just love red wine. It’s not like I drink a ton. I only have one glass, maybe 3 or 4 times a week, except for that trip to Italy and two nights this past week (eeks). I sound like I am at a confessional! Anyway, it was a fun weekend that ended in a meditation class (can’t wait to do it again) and dinner with my grandchildren, their mama, and my youngest son’s fiancee.
Y’all are going to be sick of seeing me in jackets and blazers. I am a jacket/blazer girl come the fall. I want every single one I see. I saw this gorgeous blue leopard blazer walking through Banana Republic a few weeks back and thought it would be fun to take to New York. I took it, wore it, and love it! It’s a boyfriend style fit, meaning a little boxy and a longer length. It’s a great one for wearing over skinnies or leggings. Leopard prints are everywhere, but I liked that it was in a color (I bought the size 0 for sizing). Banana Republic is having a big Friends and Family sale right now, so it’s a great time to snag this or one of their other cute jackets (not sure how long the sale will last). I am a sucker for leopard print, so I might have to break down and get this one too.
Not only are you going to get sick of seeing jackets, but I’m afraid that the velvet jeans and my loafers may get on your nerves as well. Apologizing ahead of time! I love both of them, so I plan to wear the crap out of them. The jeans are such a great fit, and you know how much I love the loafers. If you spend a bit more on something, I think you should get your money’s worth! I’m also going to be carrying this bag a lot too! It’s new but old. I bought it used at The Real Real. I promise it looks like no one ever carried it! Now if Mother Nature would just send the heat away, I would be a bit more comfortable in my Fall clothes!
Hope you all have a great Monday! xx
