Have been beavering away here on many work-related projects, so slipping in my blog here and there as best I can.
It is a truth, universally acknowledged by me, that as soon as I say something definitive about ANYTHING, I immediately do the exact opposite. (see my old posts on neutrals, which were always followed by colour or vice versa, my statement that blazers were not for me that was immediately followed by me purchasing a blazer, etc, etc, etc.)
So I giggled when I noted to Dani, in comment to her post about her gorgeous new sparkly giraffe print coat, that I had all but given up on wearing much sparkle.
It was sort of true, but not entirely.
I am unsure if this makes me a serial liar or simply someone with underlying magpie tendencies, who, when she tells the universe one thing, immediately has the universe reward her with exactly the opposite.
Or maybe not...
Because sitting in my closet was this sparkle linen cardigan from J Crew, waiting for it's day in the sun:
It no longer appears to be there, and to be honest, I bought it about 6 weeks ago during one of the crazy summer promo thingys, because I liked the idea of sparkly neutral pieces.
I wore it for the first time today:
And here is the closeup of the sweater:
I really like this sweater a lot. Here I have paired it with Gap white jeans, my cole haan loafters, a vera modo sleeveless shell and a scarf from Target, which I swear has the best scarves going!
$16.99 and very fresh looking!
I am living in my white jeans these days, since the temperatures are still on the cool side. These are gap 1969 always skinny white jeans I purchased on sale for $45 to replace my old ones which were looking quite worn.
This is really a Wendy outfit these days. I am getting a little uniform and it is quite comfortable..
On the happiest of notes, a hummingbird arrived yesterday. There was much jubilation! Because whatever else I am, I am most definitely this: a hummingbird lover!
Somebody sent me the following video on Facebook the other day and it made me so happy. It's the little things, I tell you...
Have a great day and stay safe out there!
