I love Navy and White for Spring and Summer

So , it makes perfect sense for me to add a blue and white 

kimono for the season. 

Linking up with Turning Heads and I Will Wear What I Like- I Will Wear What I Like- 

 so go see other fabulous bloggers

My kimono is from TJ Maxx , but is now sold out.  

They do still have a fun tropical print one.

My shoes are new as well from TJ Maxx and almost sold out

Here are some other great shoes at TJ Maxx, right now.

I love a good wedge sandal and really love the height and comfort of this one. 

I think I will get a lot of use out of this one.

My photographer, DS 16 wasn’t impressed with my mint tote choice, 

but I liked it with the mint necklace.  

It’s funny when he gives me his input and doesn’t just go 

through the motions of taking my photos.

I took off the kimono and added my patterned trench 

for my walk to the store with my rolling cart.  

I found this trench several years ago at Sears and my DH

actually went to another location in a nearby city to pick it up in my size. 

Gratitude

I am grateful that when I ended up back in bed for a nap, that my son was responsible in doing his homeschooling. 

I am grateful for the fun my son and I are having with sign language. 

I am grateful for a call from my daughter, it seemed like such a short Spring Break…

I am grateful for the arrival of Spring , and seeing the wild rabbits in the evenings. 

I am grateful for my strong faith and the legacy of my parents as today is the anniversary of the day my mother passed on seven years ago.   

 

I absolutely love burgundy and Navy together in outfits.  

Lately with these crazy temperatures that are frustrating the daylights out 

of this lover of Fall and her boots.

It’s certainly giving me a great opportunity to get some great use of my pumps. 

I could wear this outfit type often  , with Old Navy Pixie pants , a topper and

a variety of shirt silhouettes to keep it interesting.  

As a stay at home Mom, I had settled on lots of jeans in different colors and silhouettes. 

This past year I’ve added several pants from Old Navy and am much happier with the variety.

Here is another way I’ve worn Navy and Burgundy in the past.

My sweater is reversible , with the other side being the print you see here. 

I could have worn it without the folds and it would have been solid navy, 

I like that it can be worn four different ways depending on whether you highlight the reverse side or not.  

It’s my first purchase of ATTITUDES BY RENEE found at QVC

It’s $39.95 and comes in three color options, sizes xs to 3x  and is made of a poly blend.

My purse is a vintage Aigner one I thrifted and absolutely adore, 

my mother was a big Aigner fan and it reminds me of her. 

I fully embraced the floppy hat trend that is going strong for the season, 

this one is by Rachel Zoe via QVC.  

Gratitude

I am grateful the my husband worked in the evening on Weds. and was able to join in for our homeschool bowling day and that my son stayed after with him to get in some extra practice.  

I am grateful that there is a bowling league starting in December that will be Sunday evenings that my husband and I will join and it will earn us a fun trip to Atlantic City this summer.  

I am grateful that my daughter who is feeling overwhelemed with her internship, her masters homework and projects and applying to PHD programs , called me just for some compassion and Mom love!  

I am grateful that my husband’s job is going well and his new boss is appreciative of him.  My dear Readers, three weeks ago completely out of the blue he was let go after being the number one salesman on pace to do a million dollars and having had no complaints ever from management and the worst part was they wouldn’t tell him why. We know that it was a move by the toxic consultant who is intimidated that my husband’s strengths are his weaknesses and wanted to get him out of the way before coming in full time in January…. No worries, it ‘s just God moving my dear husband into a better place, but boy was it a punch in the gut for a guy who works so hard!
