June 11, 2017 / Video Post Notes


When I shot this post a few days ago, it was sprinkling out, which was somewhat of a break in the weather, actually, because it’s been pouring all week. That got me wondering how on earth do “professionals” film rainy-day scenes without getting their camera equipment soaked? I don’t know, so I was glad for the cover of this porte-cochere!

Versatility of My Necklace

Getting back to the subject of my outfit, this necklace is the one I featured in my May 2017 Favorites post, and I’ve been having so much fun with it. Because of its neutral, soft colors it pairs easily with dressy outfits, particularly a simple black shift dress–gorgeous. But I also love how great it looks with just a white tee and skirt or chinos or jeans. It makes an otherwise simple outfit interesting.

Another Bargain Hunting Win

Now, about this Ralph Lauren skirt: I found it at Marshall’s. How great is that? I know it can be daunting going into stores like Marshall’s and TJ Max. Often I come out without having bought a single thing. But what keeps me going back are the numerous amazing bargains on quality classics that I do continue to find. In fact, the cute leather tassel hanging from my Tory Burch crossbody bag is also from Marshall’s. I found it last year. For more on this crossbody, see my Favorites December 2016 post.

Hope you’re having a sweet weekend, and thank you again for visiting my blog.

P.S. Another great store for bargains is Nordstrom Rack. We have one in the same shopping center as our Whole Foods, so it’s Heaven for me. I’ve bought several pairs of Tory Burch ballet flats there over the years, including the ones I’m wearing here.
