Music is Good for the Soul

Posted on: June 8, 2015

 Three Weekends In A Row filled with Neil Diamond, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Billy Joel, has been so fabulous and I have to say the effects last long after the music has ended…

I hope I continue to find music events to enjoy for the Summer.

This outfit is all new from this new line I have really fallen for this season.

It’s called Kate & Mallory from Evine , previously known as ShopNBC

If you’ve been a Dear Reader for awhile, you know of my love of third completer pieces that I value to balance out the curves in my hourglass figure.   When I saw this vest on a live tv presentation, I practically drooled.  

While I have a jean vest that I love, nothing is more fun to me than creating outfits of opposite juxtapositions , what I refer to as Ying/Yang.  Moto jackets and dresses have been a favorite silhouette for Fall/Winter.

It only makes sense that I couldn’t get this vest out of my mind and after debating whether I really needed another jean vest, I just had to go online and order it.

This pose was just for my photographer of the Day, my husband who had parked his car in my usual posing area..

The bad thing about watching fashion presentations in the Kate & Mallory line, is that I am attracted to so many items. Take in case , my dress, which again I couldn’t get out of my head and ordered along with the vest.  

I feel very blessed with my petite 5’3″ height,  that includes longer legs, allowing me not to have to purchase petite bottoms,.  I can’t help thinking of those petites who don’t fall into that category and wish this line would make items in Petite Sizing. The length of this dress on me, means I probably will wear it with wedges or heels to keep the proportions right.  

There is power in numbers and I know that if enough petite women make comments requesting it that other tv lines like this have stood up and paid attention….

I love dresses that I can wear with flats, but it doesn’t hurt to have one in this category and it has such a fun swingy skirt that wearing it with heels will make it move more, so it’s all good.

I really enjoyed wearing this dress and vest today and you can be sure that I will find other ways

to style both these pieces for the season. 

I would also like to note, that I am really loving my haircut and getting use to not having such a neat look and think this ones suits my personality so much better.

Having fun with our friends at the Billy Joel Concert

We met some really fun people and danced a lot, this was my husband being very silly as the woman behind us offered to take our picture!  

Gratitude

I am so grateful for the fun events my husband and I have had these past few weeks and that this time we brought along dear friends. 

I am grateful to my husband for dancing the night away with great enthusiasm, in the past he has done so to make me happy, but this time he was really enjoying himself.  

I am grateful that my husband and I are on the same page with loving these music events, he told me he already is eyeing a few more concerts.  I am just as happy at the free beach events and there are tribute bands this weekend! 

I am grateful that my oldest came over today, I really do miss him since he moved out late last Summer and was very busy with school and work.  Seeing him twice in a week was  a real treat. 

I am grateful for the fun we had talking about recipes as my three adult children have all been trying new things and have dishes to share, so we arranged a night for them each to cook for us. 

I am grateful that my husband supports my passion for fashion!
