Sunday evening once again.  We had a busy weekend filled with holiday plans and it was nice seeing a lot of our friends, but I had an underlying sense of sadness all weekend, as I am sure everyone did. 

It seems so irrevelant to talk about fashion at such a sad moment, but it's also a nice diversion isn't it?  I wore this outfit just around town today to do errands, grocery shopping, and then my husband and I took the kids out and about and to dinner.  I love this shawl collar blazer with jeans!  It's such a fun piece to have.  When I was at the grocery store today, I was wheeling my cart down an aisle when a man felt it necessary to tell me, "Da-yum girl, you look sharp! THANK you for keeping America beautiful!"  It totally lifted me spirits, not because I long for compliments from strange men, but because the way he said it was so funny. 

Hope you got to spend the weekend with someone you love.  Thanks for reading.


  1. I walk to work and pass the same security guard everyday and I know my outfit is really good whenever he greets me by hi beautiful what's cooking!
    Those boots are just gorgeous!

    1. That's so funny about the security guard, love it!

  2. haha! That man may have been true! That jacket is so sharp! It doesn't look so much online, but what a great shape :) Jealous!


    1. Thanks! I want to thank whomever it was that brought back the size 6 to the J.Crew in Cincinnati! :) Their take-back, my gain!

  3. That's funny. Well he's right. You looked awesome. I love that top & even more w/the shawl blazer.

  4. A well-deserved compliment! You look lovely.
