Pink and Purple for Spring

Posted on: March 28, 2016

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Weekend! 

Our weather took a cold turn with rain, so it was a nice 

chance to break out one of my leather jackets.

I orginally took this shot without my glasses, but in order to indulge my

photographer who thinks my glasses add character, 

I happily put them back on and posed again.  

Love that kid of mine!  

For a few months, I had misplaced my camera and recently found it in the back pocket 

of my purple purse.  After recharging the battery, my son couldn’t wait to take my photos, 

even making me wait for him to get dressed when his father was right there willing to take my pictures. 

I love how invested he is in my blogging journey!

My husband hadn’t noticed this Gili leather jacket despite my having worn it before. 

He actually complimented it three times , once when he first saw me in it, once when we were at 

the grocery store and again when we got home as I took it off to get cooking dinner. 

It’s currently on sale in several colors for $109 on QVC with payments of just $18.16 available.

 I am wearing a size 10 in this line, which was perfect as the arms fit snug,

so an 8 would have been too tight.

My Liz Claiborne NY blouse, which I absolutely love, is the opposite

and runs big as I am wearing an xs and it’s not tight on my 34DDD chest.  

You can’t see it very well, but I am also wearing a Halston Belt from QVC ,which I recently bought in a size xs/s , as I didn’t want it long enough to have to tie it in a bow.  

Jeans are wonderful bootcuts by Diane Gilman and a great weight for Spring/Summer. 

Purse by JOY & IMANfrom Hsn as well. 

My Peep toe booties are last year’s from Payless. 

Gratitude

I am grateful my daughter used her boyfriend’s cell phone to call me Saturday night after her Anime conference to share with me all that happened and how much fun she had. Her own phone is shutting off  and messing up. 

I am grateful that my husband took our son to see Batman Vs Superman movie, allowing me a rare night at home alone. 

I am grateful for all the texts I received from my siblings on Easter and the one my sister shared where she had made a donation to church in memory of our parents and their names were printed in the bulletin. 

I am grateful for a fun evening of cooking Easter dinner together with my husband, as we don’t get to cook together often.

I love the colors & brightness of your outfit (of course, because I too, am a color lover). Especially for this time of year and for Easter. It’s funny, because at church yesterday, there were quite a few ladies in black…so I told Rob, that at my funeral I’m banning black! We all should wear color more often and your outfit is a perfect example!! jodie

Yes wearing color is the celebration of life. I will never forget as a teen the woman from church who wore a red dress to her husband’s funeral because it was his favorite color!
