Happy Monday ladies, I hope you had a nice weekend. We finally got our veggie garden planted, (I had no part in it #blackthumb), including some seeds so I’m hopeful we’ll have things to harvest soon. We did discover there are two bunnies living in our backyard. So far they haven’t found our raised beds.
Here’s some of what’s on my mind this week-
Even at home, I’m reaching for a white shirt many days. I just feel better about myself in a classic white shirt, even if no one sees me. Plus, since I’m cooking more than ever, I’m eating more and an untucked white shirt covers a multitude of sins.
How about this white shirtdress? It’s just a super long cotton shirt with a slight shirttail hemline. I would likely just wear this open over a tank and a pair of jeans or wear it as a bathing suit coverup. This shirt is highly rated so I ordered it and will report back. I also ordered this button up and am very excited to try it. It’s designed by women for women. Town and Country magazine calls these shirts, “the perfect styles to make you look polished, put-together, and effortlessly cool” which says it all for me.
I wore this white shirt from Target last week with a pair of jeans (old) and a leopard cardigan that I’ve worn a zillion times. Yes, I iron it but as one of you mentioned last week, ironing can be a meditative way to relax.
Our electric tea kettle bit the dust last week, which is a real issue because I drink a lot of tea. I knew what I wanted to replace it with but hesitated because they’re pricey. I shopped tons of alternatives online and read tons of reviews..until I found the one I originally wanted on sale. Score! It comes in lots of gorgeous colors and I debated between them all. The blue is gorgeous, as is the pink, and aqua. But in the end, I went with the always easy, white. Let me tell you, this kettle is awesome!! I can not believe how much delight this kettle gives me. Not only do I LOVE the way it looks, it feels substantial and heats up very fast. When my blender goes, which is on it’s last legs, I will be very tempted to get another Smeg.
I never met a stripe I didn’t like. It’s a classic, modern and all-around easy pattern to wear. My favorites always seem to have white in them which look fresh to me. I really love the classic Breton tees but most have round or crew necks and I look better in v-necks. I was happy to find this one on sale. There’s actually more around than I thought.
Are you a fan of stripes?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
