BOYFRIEND BLAZER AND JEANS
Happy Saturday, gang! I hope this has been a great week for all of you! It went by too fast for me! Between running errands, playing catch-up, trying to work, and wanting to be with that little grandbaby every second, it’s already the weekend. I have to admit that I am having difficulty keeping up right now (hence why I am posting today). Also, I am not so great at delegating and have had two very part-time virtual assistants that have not worked out (mostly my fault). I have difficulty handing over the reins; therefore, I am constantly spinning my wheels and not doing a great job at anything, unlike my friend, Heather, above. I am constantly in awe of her that can get everything accomplished and look like she does to boot!
Heather and I are great friend’s as you guys already know. We were asked to be guests on a podcast called, The Remedy this past week. It’s a great podcast from two extraordinary women in Dallas, Tova Sido and Janice Gaunt. Tova is a pastor, speaker, counselor, bible study leader, author, and one of my very best friends in the world. Janice is a practicing counselor specializing in helping both individuals and couples experience abundant living as they overcome the effects of their own childhood trauma. They believe that our lives should be happy, healthy, and abundant.
The podcast has educational, inspiring, and fun conversations. We were asked to come and talk about our blog (business). It’s a fun conversation, and you will understand what I mean about Heather accomplishing all she does and me…well, I am all over the place! You can find the podcast here (Tova refers to me as Kitty, which is my nickname). It was such an honor to be on this podcast!
Okay, a little about fashion. We decided on boyfriend blazer and jeans for today. Both of us have a love for blazers and jeans, especially going into fall. We love the longer and roomier boyfriend blazer. It’s the perfect piece for fall over a pair of jeans. Are you all embracing the roomier leg jeans? I am all about them! They are so much more comfortable than tight skinny jeans. I’m not saying give up the skinnies (we need them for boot season), but the wider leg jean is my go-to for now.
Both of these blazers are from Express and on sale for under $80 (if you can believe that). They come in several different colors and look very nice in person. Most of the blazers at Express are on sale, and a great time to get a few. If you are an Alabama fan, this is the perfect chic blazer to wear to the games. I paired my boyfriend blazer and jeans, with a graphic tee from Redone. I am obsessed with their graphic tees and grab them when they come out with new ones. They sell out very fast, and I am purchasing this one today!
Do you all have any big plans for the weekend?
We don’t have much going on. Since my son and daughter-in-law are on their excursion and my daughter doesn’t want to get out much with the new baby, we will probably have dinner over here tomorrow with my mom. I become a football widow starting today; anyone else? It’s a good thing there is online shopping!
Did anyone see or hear Kamala Harris state that parents should be shopping now for Christmas (this is not political, it’s informational)? She said, “the stories that we are now hearing about the caution that if you want to have Christmas toys for your children, it might now be might be the time to start buying them, because the delay may be many, many months.” YIKES! It got me thinking, was that code for shipping is going to be backed up, or are we shutting down again? Either way, I think I am going to start Christmas shopping. There are so many sales going on this weekend, and that’s what I will be doing. I’ve included some sites I will be perusing below.
I hope you all have a great holiday weekend! Stay well and safe! xx
