Hi! Hope you all had a great weekend! (please forgive the way my text looks this morning. Having technical issues that we are working on). As I said in my previous post, my in-laws and my sister-in-law were here this past weekend (staying with us) to celebrate my MIL’s 80th birthday. We had the big celebration on Thursday night, then celebrated again with the little grandchildren on Saturday night. The little’s wanted a pinata, so we made my MIL bat at it a few times! Little kids are so fun to watch at celebrations! Today, I wanted to show you this pretty wine dress and pumps I found at Ann Taylor. There is also a $1,000 Nordstrom giveaway at the bottom of this post!
Cabernet is my drink of choice (it’s the only thing I drink, alcohol-related) and this dress and the pumps reminded me of the color of my favorite wine. I happened to walk into the Ann Taylor store in Dallas to look for a top and found these gorgeous velvet pumps instead (true to size). They honestly look like they could be an expensive designer shoe. They are 40% off right now too! The dress with the pretty pleats (wearing a petite xs) caught my eye. The color is one of my favorite’s to wear during the Fall and Winter. This is a sleeveless dress with a fluttery ruffle trim. I would wear this dress to any luncheon, holiday party, or wedding. It’s so feminine! This dress is on sale with an additional 50% off. I know we are supposed to be shopping for others, but when something this pretty is on sale, it’s hard to pass it up! I threw on my trusty leather jacket, because I was cold, but also because I always like to “rough” up a frilly and feminine look.
What does your week look like? I wish I could take a long winter’s nap because I am drained. Three weeks of coughing and not sleeping well have caught up with me, but I don’t have time for lounging. If anyone wants to come over and address my Christmas cards, I’ll give you wine and chocolate! Anyone???
Hope you all have a great Monday! xx
