Neutrals and Vintage Brooch

Posted on: February 19, 2016

The Brooch is coming back into Style, 

and I’ve worn a few of my mothers on a necklace and on my boho w

raps. DSC_3106-2 (1)

I felt like a Zen neutral look for the day… 

It’s still has enough interest for me with the hi-low contrast of the different shades of tan and brown

and the subtle print in the Old Navy sweater and the Snakeskin bag.

I love having her pieces to cherish and wear , not to just keep in my jewelry box. 

Check out JodiesTouchofStyle blog for ways they are wearing brooches this week. 

I’ve wanted a Joan Rivers Bee Brooch for a long time and finally caved in buying one this week, when I saw this one on Instagram as a memorial one for Joan.

I am so glad I found this open poncho on Jane.com,

as it’s become a favorite this season. 

I really need to taper off my addiction of looking at Jane.com daily as I see 

so many things I love and the pressure to buy since they go away or sell out so quickly. 

I’ve recently bought some tops for Summer in Yellow, Coral and Light Blue (Serenity, Pantone’s color of the Year)

Self Care

I am proud to say it’s day four of owning my Aeropilates and I’ve used it everyday. 

I am actually looking forward to it daily, as one of my goals was to have a strong back and abs to help with my sciatica, 

and these workouts definitely are going to strengthen those areas.  

In addition, upon the recommendation of a friend who has had success with this, 

I began adding Collagen  to help with joint pain I was having in my knee and hip, but also to help with my nails , which have always broken due to housework, lol.   

Dear Readers , What are you doing lately for Self Care?  Wishing you a wonderful weekend with something fun on you to do list to recharge you to face another week!  

Gratitude

I am grateful that my homeschooler took the initiative to take out my Aeropilates machine in between his subjects today to do a workout, which prompted me to do mine as well.  I think I still may do one at my regular evening time frame for two for the day! 

I am grateful that my daughter handled her rejection letter for PHD program at Boston College well, she loves the Boston area and really wanted to stay longer, but she immediately said that she didn’t like the actual school or program, so it’s really for the best. 

I am grateful that I forced myself to get dressed today, as I was feeling blue and thought about staying in my pj’s. Getting dressed in a boho outfit always lifts my spirits and after seeing the photos it sparked even more joy. 

I am grateful that after getting dressed I took a walk to the grocery store ,which also helped to lift my blue mood and I picked up some healthy snacks of fruits and vegetables!

Hah…there we go again being on the same wavelength!! And how thoughtful to link to my website—again!! Thank you tremendously! I am drawn to your poncho—probably because it is very similar to one of mine. And I know what you mean about the Jane.com website—most of the time, I try to delete the email before I look at it—such temptation! jodie
