When I am shopping or looking online, my eyes are always drawn to anything striped. I’m not sure why, I just feel it’s classy, and a more structured look. I love it. You will definitely see my partiality to the striped pattern when I roll out my “February Wants” post.
It was so cold Sunday when I took these pics, in the twenties. By the time I send this post, it’s supposed to be around fifty or sixty degrees. It’s a wonder we all are not sick! Literally freezing one day and two days later, we can go out in short sleeves.
Yesterday was a school holiday in observance for Martin Luther King, Jr. and I took off last Friday for the concert in Nashville. I’ll have to get back into the school groove now.
Everything I have on is old and I’ve styled the dress before. I do have a few clothes on order so I should have new styles soon. It’s a crazy thing. Stores expect you to actually pay for items and I’ve been on a strict budget since the Christmas holidays :0
I’ve also been considering joining Trunk Club from Nordstrom. It’s a style service that basically works like Stitch Fix. You set how often the trunk is delivered, there is a styling fee of $25 but that goes toward what you buy in that shipment. The $25 is waived if you have a Nordstrom store card.
Here is a sample of their Club preview. More stripes!
The closest Nordstrom store to me is Atlanta but I have become familiar with it online. There is a Nordstrom Rack in Birmingham; I plan to check it out soon.
Any of you that are familiar with Trunk Club please send me your thoughts.
By this time of year, I am longing for Spring so any bright color I can add to black, gray or brown I’m going for it.
I wore this to church and had to keep the coat on during part of the service because the dress has 3/4 length sleeves. I really get a lot of wear out of this dress (I believe it came from Old Navy), it was a gift from my daughter. I wear it in the fall and winter.
I really like this RL dress but I do NOT need another striped dress. Oh, and of course it’s on sale!!!! Temptation 🙁
We are getting close
I see red in the bud!
Fun fact: In the Victorian Language of Flowers, Amaryllis means “pride”. I am very proud of my Diane Amaryllis!
