11 Feb Turning Heads Linkup – Plaid Blazer with Jeans
If you usually wear a sweater with jeans and that is your winter uniform, try adding a plaid blazer for some extra oomph. I am a blazer kinda girl and just adding that 3rd piece amplifies your look. If you are still looking for Valentine’s looks, read yesterday’s post- Valentine’s Day the Casual Way. I am wearing red roses on my booties today, so that should count! 🙂
First, I want to thank you for the well wishes while I am titrating down on pain medication. It has been a trying time and at times I questioned whether I should do this or not. The reality is, with pain meds, you build a tolerance and an increase in pain sensitivity. I really is possible to go down on the medication and still feel the same level of pain over time. Anyhoo, it took about 2 weeks for me to “balance out” and not feel all of the withdrawal. I have a way to go, but I appreciate your care and support.
Since I have posted 3 looks for Valentine’s Day, read the posts here-Valentine’s Day The Casual Way
Maybe that will give you some ideas! 🙂
I was ready for a change and this week it called for denim. I love my AG jeans, but my second favorite is my Old Navy Rockstars which I wear often. Yesterday I wore them in grey, today ina darker wash. This exact plaid blazer I bought at H&M, is not available anymore, but I linked similar ones.
We celebrated my sister’s birthday over the weekend and I bought a white chocolate curl cake with white cake and banana cream.. oh yeah! We have a great bakery nearby that my husband lives for!
How about the Oscars? I wasn’t able to watch it, but I did catch who won the day after, all well deserved! It was funny as that afternoon we thought about going to see “Parasite”, but I wasn’t up to it.. and it wins Big Picture! I often love indies and foreign films over blockbusters. But- Glad to see Brad Pitt won as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was a creative and fun movie, along with Josquin Pheonix winning for The Joker.I’m always amazed at actors that transform and drop bodyweight for a roll. Does anyone see The Machinist with Christian Bale? yeah….
I just had to add this gold leaf brooch! 🙂
