Earlier this week, my husband and traveled down to Greenville, SC to see Willie Nelson in concert.  I have always wanted to see him perform live and at 84, this may be his last tour.  This was a birthday gift from my children which included awesome seats.  We had a great time and got to explore the Greenville, beforehand.  What a great city!

The weather had taken a turn and was chilly, so I took the opportunity to wear a new spring cardigan and necklace that Soft Surroundings had sent me.  If you are familiar with SS, you know that they have a softness rating on their clothes of 1-3, #3 being the ultimate of softness.  This "cardi" as they call it, did not disappoint and is very soft (a #3), and warm too.  The rosy-peach color is trending this spring so will be wearing this sweater with tee shirts, and the like throughout the season.

Along with the sweater they also sent this beautiful handmade necklace; a leather bouquet of colorful flowers.  It truly is a wonderful piece of jewelry.  You will see it in the future with a simple black dress and many more outfits.  I have linked these items and my black patent booties below in the gallery.

I really enjoy shopping at Soft Surroundings, not only for clothes but for skin care, makeup and home goods as well.  Watch for future posts showing other spring items!! I look forward to sharing them.

Ready for the New Week...

We all have those weeks! And I am glad to put last week behind me and move on but thought I would share with you a little with you. 

Last Sunday night after watching our team's awful playoff game, I got that terrible stomach flu.  I barely surfaced till Tuesday afternoon as it hung around.  That night my Mom had a mild heart attack and we quickly met her at the hospital.  Thankfully, after two procedures, care and rest in the hospital, she is back home and feeling much better! 

Mom is a strong, independent, fierce, 80 (plus) year old that does things her way!! She still lives on her own with her two little dogs, drives herself, plays bridge 2X a week and enjoys life with her family and many friends.

My Mom and I

My Mom and I

My family is so blessed to have her in our lives and what a loving person she is.   Who was she worried about last week?  Not herself but me!  She was worried that I had not gotten enough rest after the flu and spending the night and days with her. Talk about a mother's love! 

Hoping to get back to normal this week but will be spending a lot of time with Mom till she is back in the driver's seat...so to speak.

I am wearing a cute plaid shirt from one of my favorite boutiques, Luxe Angel in Charlotte, a grey Eileen Fisher sweater from the closet, #ftc and jeans, also from Luxe Angel, which happen to be some of my new favorites.  The brand is Articles of Society and they are a dark gray with a raw/cut hem.  The fit is great and so is the price.  In fact, they are still available here.  My boots are Ralph Lauren from the closet, which I bought on sale at Belk last year for $7.  They have the best sales.  I have linked some similar boots for you.

Hope your week is great and thanks for stopping by as always.  XXOO

Day to Night

Happy weekend, friends! 

I love accordion pleated skirts as they are timeless and an ageless addition to any wardrobe!  This silver and rust leopard print from Anthropologie really caught my eye, for the fall!  I love the length and the beautiful fabric.

I like to get as much wear as I can from any addition to my wardrobe. So... I styled this pretty skirt two ways so that you could see the transition from day to night and how easy it is to make the switch.

These fabulous earrings are also from Anthropologie and found on sale.  The grey suede booties are Vince Camuto.  My sweatshirt is Free People, from the previous season #ftc, and Carolee earrings #ftc.

The evening photo features the same accordion pleated skirt, a J.Crew sequin top #ftc (possibly 10 years old), a Kate Landry evening bag #ftc, Ralph Lauren strappy sandals #ftc and earrings #ftjb.  All new or similar items will be featured in the gallery below.  

These photos were taken at the Pump House in Rock Hill, SC (just south of Charlotte) at the Rooftop Bar.  If you get a chance to visit I would I highly suggest this restaurant and bar.  The views are beautiful and the food and drinks... amazing!  

As always, thank you for reading and I love to read comments so be sure to post them below!
