Have Mercy...Date Night
I'm linking to Patti's Visible Monday post because I feel very visible in this bright fuchsia top, colorful necklace and swingy skirt. I rely on a black and white color palette often, but with spring just around the corner, I'm feeling a visceral craving to add so bright, happy color. Both of these pieces were purchased *retail* at Dress Barn. I guess I'm doffing my typical tradition of black and white.I loved wearing this for date night last night. I enjoy wearing clothes that make me feel vibrant while allowing me to not feel constricted or uncomfortable; in other words clothes that I can put on and forget and still feel special.
I supposed I did stick to my accessory tradition of wearing Lia Sophia jewelry. I have to be honest and admit that when I first saw this piece in the new spring catalog....I didn't like it AT ALL. As the weather started to get a little bit warmer, the necklace began to grow on me and now I LOVE IT!
Its much prettier than it appears in this picture. It was difficult to capture the vibrance of the colors, sparkle and shine. The tiny flowers are actually a pale apricot color, and the dark blue petals on the second 'flower' from the right are actually a beautiful violet shade. The entire piece is very sparkly and colorful.
These earrings are also more vibrant than they appear and they match the color on the leaves of the rhinestone daisy on the far right of the necklace. The houndstooth patterned tights were just fun. We went to a improv comedy show last night and had so much fun. We needed a good lighthearted 'laughing date'.
The necklace to the left is one of the new spring Lia Sophia pieces that I am eager to wear. Again, its not my typical neutral piece....but spring has my heart right now and this piece feels like spring.In my last post, I mentioned that I purchase a kit of 10 pieces that are meant to be given as prizes at LS shows. I mentioned that there were three that I fell in love with and decided to keep. One was the bracelet in my last post and these earrings and the necklace below are the other two.
Monday.....is job search day.
I will be sending some documents to the local DCS (child protective services department) as part of a pre-screening process they have requested. I had submitted a resume and was surprised to hear from them within just a few days.
I'm also applying in person for another human services job tomorrow.
Of course I am continuing my studies, but I'm ready to re-enter the work force.
Enjoy your day, lovely ladies!
