Thanks for the Buttering Up!

Day Two: No Shopping Challenge

"Remember, man does not live on bread alone: sometimes he needs a little buttering up!" 
-John C. Maxwell
Day #2 Look!

Today is definitely a new day! Since I am currently out of “bread” the buttering up of the ladies who read this blog has been such a blessing!! Thank you all, for your encouragement and ideas! Keep them coming, please……

I feel much better today…though the autumn heat continues. As I reached for one of my many jackets , I grabbed first this navy blue, thin cardigan. I purchased the sweater at a Macy’s Red Apple Sale maybe three years ago and know I have not worn it in over a year.  For weather like today.... It feels great! Not hot at all. The pants are a casual cotton twill from Lane Bryant; the pointy toed flats from Target (again); and the green sleeveless sweater and amazing scarf are both items I have mentioned in recent posts.

To complete the look….a large bronze watch from Target; a bronze cuff from Kohl’s; bronze Stein Mart earrings; and unseen is a thin, bronze headband!!

Since this is the second day for Target shoes, I would like to tell you that I find most of their shoes very comfortable (and I am picky!); stylish, and affordable. I have three pair that I wear often…you have just seen two of them!!


Naturally, the day had its temptations.  When I opened the mail, there was an envelope announcing my upgrade in shopping status at Stein Mart..woo hoo, more coupons, private sales, perks....like offering a an ice cream cake to someone who just started a diet!!  Also, I received a mailer from Talbot's which leads to the next WISH LIST.

WISH LIST (a gift certificate from here would be nice)

The Talbot's mailer promoted some of the prettiest styles I have seen in a long time.  Beautiful fabrics (love cashmere), feminine details, soft colors....true strength in classy femininty.  Check out the collection at http://www.talbots.com/

Love the detail on these V Necks!
Femininty is so strong!

There jewelry is gorgeous!

Love those trousers!

This purse was my last official purchase!
I love it...good way
to go out!

Ahhh, Shopping, good night sweetheart!

  1. Oh, the scarf! I have one I've been fussing with all summer and because I've never worn scarves much before, I'm not yet comfortable wearing out of the house.

    I just bought a pair of Target shoes for my November ensembles.

    And YOU are the second person to speak highly of Talbot's current line. Guess it's time to check them out.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
