Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a restful weekend. You will hear more about mine on a later post.
Last week I titled my Visible Monday post as “April Showers“. This week I share an outfit I wore for another type of shower…my Belle Fille’s bridal shower. I was still sick with a bad cold and cough when the day of the shower arrived. I really just wanted to stay home–my energy levels were zero. But seriously, this was not an option…obviously. This was to be Belle Fille’s personal shower–I wouldn’t miss it for the world. However, finding something to wear was very challenging. Jeans were out of the question but I didn’t want to be too dressy. I opted for this:
(jacket, skirt–j.jill; handbag–coach; scarf–no brand/vintage)
I was comfortable and the shot of turquoise livened me up a bit.
Do you own a metallic leather (or pleather) handbag? I recommend it…they are great neutrals and go with anything.
And my granny shoes worked too.
I wore my “pave” bow ring on my right hand. I typically never wear rings on my right hand. I went through a period where I kept buying the “perfect” right hand ring only to never wear it. I’ve given up. Once in a blue moon I’ll pull one out for a special occasion. I am the same way about bracelets. And yes, my skin is that dry. Time for a mani.
The shower was beautiful and intimate with only about a dozen close friends. She got many elegant, tasteful lingerie items. In my card, after I said the gushy stuff, I told her to look around the room and note that these women who are showering her with so many gorgeous gifts, all share the same secret…they all know the fluff and lace doesn’t matter because at the end of the day, he just wants you naked. I know she truly values my insight no matter how embarrassing it may be for her. It’s my job.
The JCPenney Model has recovered from her fall…we think. She’s a bit unpredictable. When asked to capture a “mother of the bride” pose, she stomped her foot and declared she was too young to pose for that. Once reminded that she is under contract and many other JCPenney models would love to be working right now, we got:
Nice. We weren’t overjoyed with this shot or her interpretation of the “mother-of-the-bride”, so we asked that she try it again. Much to our dismay:
We decided it wise to give it a rest and encouraged her to get some rest. Perhaps it was a little too soon for her to work since the “accident”.
Now it time for you to go check out the other ladies at Not Dead Yet Style. Have a great Monday!
What is your “go to” outfit when you aren’t feeling well but are forced to be somewhere?
