Hi there! I hope you all are doing well! My house is full, and it’s been so fun to have my son, daughter-in-law, and kids here. There is never a dull moment or silence! I told them over the weekend that I hoped they were still here in October so that we could decorate for Halloween. I know they want to find a house (soon), but I secretly hope they are here through the holidays. It’s fun to have a little chaos! Speaking of going forward to Halloween, I found a fantastic linen (blend) boyfriend blazer in a deep chocolate brown that is perfect for the Southern fall. Chocolate brown is one of my favorite colors to wear in the fall, and this linen blend is just the right weight for fall in the South. I paired the blazer with a chocolate brown cowl neck camisole and a pair of flair jeans.

The boyfriend blazer and cami are perfect choices when it’s still hot, but you want to wear a fall look. I bought both pieces at Express, and you will love the prices. Both pieces combined are a little over $100! WooHoo!.These pants look great with the blazer if you want a monochromatic look, but I prefer a pair of denim. I’ve been out shopping lately, and I honestly have not been bowled over by very much. In between seasons is a hard time to get excited about, but fall is just around the corner. That’s why I think the chocolate brown blazer is a great choice going forward.

I’m not sure how many of you are on Instagram or TikTok.

I’ve said before that I have a hard time with it. I don’t know why I think I’m too old to get on and dance around like so many other women my age, but it doesn’t feel authentic to me. I’ve heard that everything will be going to video soon; therefore, Instagram will change some. I loved Instagram when it first came out. You could see beautiful images that were meaningful. Now, I feel like it’s turning into sell, sell, sell! How do you all feel about it? Do you like to see 50+-year-old women dancing around? Does it grab your attention? I’m really curious to hear what you all think. Can you tell I’m trying to make some decisions?

I have a hectic day. I was invited by the PR team for Victoria’s Secret to a personal shopping experience in the store to see what is new. Also, I haven’t shopped in Victoria’s Secret in a long time, so I’m anxious to see what they have. I am shooting today with a special “somebody” who will appear on the blog soon!

One more thing, I have fallen in love with a cleansing balm that removes makeup and impurities while it hydrates with shea butter and sunflower seed oil. It’s from Keys Soulcare. I read a great review on it and decided to try it. It is fantastic! I had no idea until yesterday that it was a line from Alicia Keys.

Have a great day! Stay well and be safe! xx
