Today I’m keeping the story portion of the post short…
…Last year I told you guys about this fabulous interscholastic sports program that my district started for my kids. Last night was my their first bocce match of the year and it went into double over time. No, I ain’t playin’. A bocce match that went into double overtime. Regardless, an excellent time was had by all, but dayum…I’m beat.
Even though I’m brain dead tired at the moment I do have a couple of blog-related things coming up that I’m pretty excited about. I don’t want to share all of the details just yet until everything is final, but I have a meeting Saturday with a couple of great ladies I met through Instagram. We’re cooking up a real life and social media collaboration that I think is going to be pretty fabulous. I’ll definitely share as soon as all is settled.
The second thing is an amazing campaign I was invited to be a part of with an absolutely outstanding group of over 50 bloggers across a variety of genres. Perhaps you’ve noticed #thefierce50 popping up in your Instagram feed…if not, check it out! It’s time for the world to sit up and take notice; 50 is not what it used to be, not by a long shot and we are here to prove it!
This Free People paisley tunic is one of my favorites in my tunic collection. It’s the perfect lightweight cotton for the heat of summer, and that also makes it perfect for layering with other pieces in the winter. It works over leggings, denim or a skirt extender like the tulle extender I wore today. The taupe, burgundy, mauve colors are beautiful and play well with so many other shades.
The over the knee boots are new. I didn’t have a nude pair and when I saw these on sale at Charlotte Russe I made them mine. Unfortunately, while they are gorgeous, it is virtually impossible to lace them up tight enough at the top so you know what that means…yep, I spent all day adjusting them because they kept sliding down. I do love them though, so I need to find a way to tweak them so they stay up. Any suggestions from my craftier friends out there are definitely welcome.
Don’t forget about your summer pieces in the winter. Oftentimes they make the best layering pieces, plus the more wear you can get out of items in your closet, the more bang you get for your buck.
