Mother Knows Best…

Posted on: April 4, 2016

My day began with a trip to the hair salon for a cut and 

I was so happy as the last week or so every picture I took my hair was driving me nuts…

Here is my hair just  a few days ago, on yet another windy day….

See why I said yet another windy day, lol… 

The first thing I noticed after looking in the mirror after the haircut was the 

wisdom of my dear mother who at age 13 had decided that I should get my hair cut short, 

as she said it would highlight my cheekbones.  

Of course at 13 it devastated me, but looking back at the photos of that time I always noticed she was right!

Marbled shirts like the green one I am wearing here seem to be big for this season. 

I found mine on Jane. com and it’s actually a long asymetrical hemmed tunic, which 

I tied off the to side as that longer lenght on my petite height works only when I wear heels.  

I was itching to wear my BEE Happy flats again….

Not sure about the bright yellow purse here , but black seemed to drab and my green one 

is messed up so I opted for a pop of color instead.  

My Bee Happy shoes by C. Wonder are currently sold out , but I heard they will be getting them back in at some point.

Apparently , the plan is to make a new loafer design each month and for April they’ve rolled out a blue pair with leather elephants on them,   You can find it here...

This was an outfit I wore over the weekend to break out my new Ann Taylor anchor print pants, 

which seem to be sold out now… 

Dear Readers, I am happy to report that I’ve lost 4lbs on my first week of sticking to a plan.  In fact the black pants I wore today fit me much better than they had last time I wore them and that gave me a spring in my step all day!  Pressing forward to see how much I can lose before my daughter’s graduation at the end of May…

Gratitude

I am grateful for wonderful phone conversations with my dear friend as we haven’t done that in awhile.. 

I am grateful that my husband realized the green bananas he picked up last night weren’t going to ripe enough for my Tuesday morning breakfast and tonight  grabbed me a small bunch of organic ones that were much better than all the other ones in the store. 

I am grateful to a dear friend who picked me up after my haircut today. 

I am grateful for the laughter and fun of using my son’s Iphone to video chat with my daughter on her commute home and see the 6 inches of snow she had to get through…

I am grateful for a Beautfiul , Sunny Day!  

I am grateful for 4 days free of sinus issues, February and March were pretty tough!

I like the anchor pants a lot. I didn’t realize until I saw them on you that I don’t own a pair of pants with a pattern on them. I have some capris with designs but no pants. They look so good on you that I think I will have to correct that oversight!

I talk a lot about how much a part pattern pants add to my style. I have a few from Old Navy as well as from Loft and Ann Taylor. They really help to make an outfit with solid tops that we all have aplenty… Hope to hear what you find!

The anchor print pants are so cute! Love the bold pairing with the pink.
