A Sneak Peek to My Outfit for my Daughter’s Graduation

Posted on: April 15, 2016

Missed Me?

No worries I’ve been fine, just not especially motivated with this darn

cold front that’s hit us and stolen my thunder of wanting to style Spring Outfits.

I’ve been in quite a funk over it ,but have purchased a Fitbit Charge and Have been MOVING!  

I got the last completer piece for the oufit I plan to wear for my daughter’s

graduation next month with her Master’s in Psychology from Boston College.

 725-349 - Marc Bouwer Stretch Knit Cap Sleeved Sheer Detailed Fit & Flare Dress:

I have been missing a modest , but dressy enough black dress in my wardrobe, I lucked out when I found 

 this Mark Bouwer one on Evine to fill that hole.  

I bought this several months ago, so it’s nice to have a place to wear it!  

Celestial style. Show off the star you are with this button-front jacket. Featuring 3/4-length sleeves and a starry pattern, it makes a stellar style statement, day and night. From the Joan Rivers Classics Collection(R).

I chose this Joan Rivers star print jacket as my topper. 

I loved it because it’s my nod to my amazing daughter

who is still shooting for the stars with her goal of getting a Phd!  

The good news is that despite my weight gain the size 6 looks great and was a size left on the clearance sale. 

Showing off your style is a cinch with this reversible G.I.L.I. Obi Wrap leather belt. Each side of the 2-in-1 design--including a solid leather look on one side and embossed leather on the other--provides a variety of styling options. Wrap the obi sash around your waist to give shape to loose tops, dresses, rompers, and more--then tie the tapered ends for a comfortable, customizable fit. A slit at the center back allows the belt to lay flat and stay in place. <br><br>Enhance your look and y...:

To accessorize, I opted for this Gili obi belt in the color of the year Serenity. 

I love this unexpected pastel shade against the black.

The pictures show the belt and shoes being so different in color , but in reality the shoe very much 

coordinates with the obi belt and not this almost lavendar shade.  

I don’t mind being matchy-matchy with just these two small touches of the pastel shade. 

These are my favorite Payless Comfort Plus style pumps.  

Dear Readers, 

The long awaited Jimmy Buffet Concert is tomorrow and I am looking forward to a great night. 

I wish you all a fabulous weekend filled  with laughter, fun, family and friends!  

Stay tuned Monday for my Parrot Head Photos! 


I am grateful that my dear friend who has been dealing with a mold allergy is set to move out of the offending house this weekend and early next week. I am breathing a sigh of relief as finding a place near our beach area is not easy this time of year for a single mom’s price range.  

I am grateful that my dear friend who owns a truck has agreed to help with the move on Monday morning, which is what I will be doing Monday!  

I am grateful that my bowling mom friend stuck to her instincts and had her daughter’s ball checked and redrilled, fixing the problem that was hurting her wrist and causing other issues , just in time for another bowling tournament this weekend. This sounded the alarm and I am set on investigating  my son’s situation to go have someone else look at his as he has issues with the new ball I got him in December that never exsisted before. 

I am grateful for plans for a Girls Night Out to go see a movie and some music and drinks afterwards.

Can’t wait to see the outfit in person! My mom was just talking about making Nancy & I an obi belt!! jodie

I love myself an obi belt and now have three, black, this pale blue and a chestnut one… Mom should absolutely indulge you all!

Just ordered a fit bit myself. Hoping it will get me moving! Love the dress and jacket

Dorothy as a Stay at Home Mom, it’s the best tool ever to really awaken me to getting moving more. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do. By all means let me know how it’s going for you!

I love the notes of gratitude that you post. It reminds me to be thankful for all the blessings in my life and put pancreatic cancer on the shelf where it belongs.

I like that Joan Rivers top with the black dress and I think the touch of blue will be pretty. I read blogs like yours to get ideas because I am in a rut of always using the same things in the same ways and I really like to see what everyone else is doing.

Thank you, saying prayers for you! Getting out of a rut is a journey we are all in together.
