Happy Thursday ladies. I was missing in action yesterday because we bought a house, lost a house then made an offer on another house. Whew, that’s stressful and I’m guessing my blood pressure is up. There’re lots of houses to choose from but many are seriously outdated and in need of work. I’d actually prefer to buy a fixer-upper so I don’t have to pay for someone else’s idea of nice.
It was gray and breezy so I wore my newest sweater blazer in Smoky Wisteria. I’m not sure why J. Crew calls it that because it looks like a clear lilac color to me. J. Crew makes these sweater blazers in many shapes and lengths with varying collars, belted and unbelted. It was the color that sold me on this one which I discovered during DRD here. This runs very large so size down two sizes.
I paired it with slim ankle jeans, a white blouse, and mules. Mules are a great shoe for spring. I prefer ones that fit higher on your foot. The longer toe box means they stay on easier with less toe gripping when you walk.
I can only take a few pastel colors on me in one look without feeling like a flower garden. This pink bag tipped the scales but I’ll do anything to rush the season.
I’m really looking forward to getting into a home of our own but I’m dreading the moving process. We left tons of boxes still packed and stacked in the garage from our move last year, but there’s still so much to move.
If I haven’t needed it in a year, should I donate it? Many people believe in that process for their wardrobe. I don’t…so it’s not likely to happen with my household things either. I’ll be decluttering as I pack and unpack because I just don’t need 6 cookie sheets and 8 pie plates! How did I get so many? I merged the contents of two homes and didn’t get rid of enough.
Are you downsizing in preparation to retire or move?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
