This was what i wore for a Girl’s Night Out to an art show.

All I can say is, I am completely sold on Ponte Knit blazers and want to yell from the rooftops about how comfortable they are.

I now own 4 of them and know they will be workhorses for this Fall/Winter Season.

Trouser Jeans are such a nice break from Skinny Jeans.

I am finding it much easier to leave off necklaces when the top has details like this one with the colors and buttons.

Dear Readers, I saw a preview for a news story this afternnoon about a little boy with a terrible disorder that makes him allergic to most foods. In fact there are only five foods he  can eat.  That made me stop and think, If I was only limited to 5 foods that I could eat, what would I choose?  My Immediate Answer was,

Bacon and Chocolate

Then my practicle side said I’d need something to sustain my body and I chose the remaiing 3

Chicken, Mushrooms and Onions.  

So Dear Readers anyone else want to play, What would your choice of 5 Be?  


I am grateful for a weekend filled with girl fun, an art show and thrifting.

I am grateful that I found my daughter’s “Ice Princess dress ”   she wanted for Halloween on my thrifting venture and on the first try!

I am grateful that my weight loss has resulted in lower blood pressure , which I keep checking to make sure this change is real and lasting, and guess what It Is!!!   

I am grateful that my weekend ends with the Football Game tonight ( sure hope they can pull out a win…)

Beautiful color on you! Have a wonderful week…I love your grateful list!

thank you, that gratitude list is a real lifesaver on tough days!!!

Great jacket – I love the color and the knot makes it so comfortable too. Great look altogether, and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

Love the crisp white top w/ pretty detail to match the blazer.
Hmmm…my first indulgent anwer to your question would include McDonald’s plain cheeseburger and fries, and also tortilla chips with guacomole. But since those are my loves/weaknesses, and not good for my new lifestyle…I would choose instead…
filet mignon steak, baked potatoes w butter/sour cream, linguine w/low cal alfredo sauce , broccoli, Scooters cereal (like honey nut cheerios) w/ vanilla almond milk. Okay that’s technically more than 5 items total, but that’s the best I can do at narrowing it down. Could I also add chicken? 😀

Ponte knit blazers are sooo comfortable, so I can see why you love them. If I could only eat five foods they would be: gummy bears, steaks, potatoes, apples, and tacos. That’s probably not very healthy but I love it all, lol!

Visiting from Visible Monday #50. Great looking Pink blazer and it fits you well. I am grateful to be alive!

I love the look of the trouser jeans, especially paired with your blazer. I hear you loud and clear when you say how comfy they are.

Pretty color blazer, suits you well 🙂

I really, REALLY love this blazer, as in want to run out and get my own! The color is so fantastic for you!

I guess if I had to choose 5 foods I’d say potatoes, chicken, bread, cheese, and…

gosh, I don’t know, this is too hard! 😉

Sweet! Pink, white, brown and black jeans … inspired, and adorable!
Five foods? Couldn’t pick. How sad for the little one.

Thank you and yes that story is sad and his family is hoping for help with research for this rare disorder. I never take for granted the health of my children!

This is a classy outfit. Especially love the silhouette of the pants–very flattering. Nice!

Thank you and a good point on the silhouette, my hourglass figure needs this more often!
