Shades of Green


Hello Ladies, I was due for a casual day, ( clothing wise) and today was it. Today was one of those days where we decided to go out to a late brunch. Lets just say, our mornings and afternoons kind of blend in together at times

IMG_3226 IMG_3233 IMG_3232 IMG_3218My mornings are usually taken up by starting with the bubble bath and espom salt routine, while playing some swing or jazz in the morning.  Brunch is often the large meal with delicious fruity drinks ( belinis or Martinis ( doesn’t matter, as long as they end with an “ini” I am usually set :-), and later we may have a small meal and/or snack. I wake up in the morning and sometimes there are sounds from my stomach, I think I don’t even recognize. The translation is all of the same: I;m Hungry. So we head to one of our favorite brunch places, Bonefish Grill, and order a craving I have had for over a month, Eggs Benedict with asparagus, along with a freshly muddled Watermellon Martini and some coffee. My husband and I order the same, yet he basically likes the egg very runny and I like mine practically hard boiled. The waitress’ name was “Summer”, which I think is pretty unique, and all well and good, because I am not good at remembering names. Unless they are dogs.. that is another story… Another hot day, in the 90s, as July is often the hottest month in Charlotte, NC or the Carolinas for that matter. I decided to be a bit more casual today, as I have been dressing up in more dressy attire and just felt like wearing this green ensemble of green printed shorts with a hint of mint in the corner. This, of course, is what I bring out with the top, a wrap mint top, which accentuates the waist. Since I was going with mainly a green theme, I wore my Clark Artisan shoes, my “foot pillows”, I like to call them, as it really feels like you are stepping on one, as well as my green sparkly necklace and matching earrings. Enjoy your weekend! Jess xo

Shorts: LOFT ( 3 yrs ago), top ( Ann Taylor similar), Shoes: Clark Artisan,( different color on sale!) Handbag: LV Damier Speedy, Necklace and Earrings: Jewel Box ( 2013)

    Dear Jess,
    great shorts, great top, great jewellry. Love your outfit, which looks so much like summer. Today it is very hot here too, but heavy thunderstorms are annouced and then rain Monday and Tuesday. We don´t get a long warm period over here this summer.

    Jess, this day sounds like a dream. Brunch is also one of my favorite meals, especially during the lazy days of summer. Your shades of green are awesome and surprisingly blends so well together. Love your ‘foot pillows’, how great to have comfort and style all in one. Have a wonderful weekend, cute lady.

    Love casual days, sadly working for a CPA firm does not allow for them much. If we know for a fact no one will stop by our office we will do casual (so like maybe 3 days a year). Love the mix of colors here!!

    Love the jewelry (vintage style is my favorite) and the Coach glasses are awesome! With all these outfits i assume your husband only gets about 1/2 a foot of space (maybe 2-3 outfits)!!

    Keep up the great work!
