Hi, Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. We had our 35th (double YIKES!!!) college reunion from Southern Methodist University this past weekend. I swear I feel like it was just a few years ago that we had our 2oth! My husband and I both graduated in the same class, so it was fun to catch up with all of our friends. We went to a party on Friday night; then I went to a sorority brunch on Saturday with my pledge sisters (Kappa Kappa Gamma). Saturday night, we had already committed to an event for the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center. It’s a great art party for the worthiest cause and were so excited that our daughter-in-law to be had a piece of art hanging on the wall. It was a fun event, and my daughter and son-in-law came in to attend as well. I love it when we are all together!

I was shopping at Nordstrom last week and saw this gorgeous Ted Baker schoolgirl collar blouse. I have always been attracted to schoolgirl collars on shirts and dresses. I think it is because it gives a youthful look! This one is so pretty with the beautiful Kyoto garden detail. The pop of orange butterflies and florals is what caught my eye. I know it’s sweater weather in most places, and that’s why I added a jacket on top. I thought the white jacket made the top really stand out. I also think a grey cardigan sweater would be beautiful with it too.

I have told you about my love of all things Veronica Beard. The jacket I am wearing is in fact, Veronica Beard. It is the Scuba Jacket, and it comes in three other colors. It has the inside zipper for interchangeable dickeys as well. The jeans are also from Veronica Beard. I honestly think they fit me better than any other jean. I know jeans are like bathing suits. You have to try a lot of them on, but the couple pairs I have now, fit me like a glove. What I like about them, is that they hold their shape and don’t stretch out.

I am part of a great giveaway today, that you should definitely sign up for. It’s a $1,000 gift card to Nordstrom that would come in handy for Christmas shopping. Or, you might just use it to get those Gucci pumps you’ve had your eye on! Have a great day!!!
