Turning Heads Linkup-Trending Now-Pink and My Statement Sandals

Hello Friends,

Well, I had a nice but busy weekend. We did get to enjoy the 82 degree temps on Saturday as we made our way to a new Vineyard. I hope to write some posts on our vineyard hopping throughout the summer as it would be a great way for me to note certain wines and how we enjoyed each place. Yesterday I wrote about choosing gifts for Mother’s Day via Uno Alla Volta, so if you are looking for a one of a kind piece , check out my post HERE.

Saturday was Truffles birthday! She is now 8 yrs old and I can’t believe it! She still acts like a puppy and loves to play with her plush beehive/squeeky bees I got her as a gift. She picks up the whole bright yellow plush hive in her mouth and runs throughout the house.  My hubby put her bed by the window to look outside and she can sit there for hours staring at I don’t know what? I don’t know if I ever mentioned, but she didn’t bark for 2 years until we got Gibson and now her bark sounds like a high pitched talk.. so weird and funny! I tell them all of the time that I love them “to bits”!

At the vineyard, the guitarist sang Happy Birthday to Truffles and a woman came up to tell her that ” she doesn’t look 8″ haha! I had to laugh, as I thought it was funny that this sentiment spilled over to dogs. How does a dog look 8? I hope to write about this vineyard for Friday’s post, so please stop by!

I think by know we now that pink is a color that is trending now. I can’t say I have always worn pink but now my closet has quite a few pieces. I love the soft pink of blush and some bright pinks. I wore pink yesterday as one of my fav dresses by ASOS. Today I decided to pair my pink top with this bright floral pencil skirt. I wanted my Betsey Johnson blush sandals to take the stage today! I have been on a bit of a shoe spree lately, and you will see what I mean in upcoming posts. I think because I can now wear more block heels and that they are plentiful, that I have unleashed the “inner shoe beast” in myself! When I saw these pearl block heeled blush sandals I knew they would fit perfectly with my Spring wardrobe. Fun! And with a 2 inch heel, doable.

( excuse the lack of pedicure.. im gettin” there! :-))

In yesterday’s post, I wrote about the jewelry I received from Uno Alla Volta. You saw my dragonfly opal earrings from them, and the scarf. Today I am wearing these beautiful pearlized looped colorful fan earrings and necklace. I love them! They are elegant and go with much of my closet. ** c/0 the jewelry was gifted by Uno Alla Volta. All opinions are truthful and mine.

    Jess, what a lovely outfit. You look so cute in a pencil skirt and that one is fabulous! Love those sandals. What cute heels. So funny that your puppy got a birthday song and that that lady told her she doesn’t look 8! Dogs and cats just love looking out the window. I suppose they can see things we can’t. Ha, ha. – Amy

    I absolutely love this look Jess! The color is amazing with your hair. Those are exactly the sort of sandals I love, very stylish but not too high heeled. I’ve got a new pair of pink sandals with silver block heels which I plan to show off very soon in the blog.
    Your summer of wine tasting sounds a superb idea!

    Happy Birthday to Truffles! Sounds like you all had a great time celebrating! Looking forward to the vineyard post!

    And, yes, I like pink a lot, but I don’t have a lot of pink in my wardrobe anymore. Most of the pink I own is in the form of accessories. I may have to add one or two pink pieces this seasons.

    I really love this outfit! The skirt and the top are beautiful, and the jewelry goes perfectly with it. What pretty pieces! And I just love the shoes! The pearls detail is so pretty and fun!

    Thanks for the link up & have a fabulous Tuesday!

    You look beautiful in pink too, so it’s great it’s trending! All the pink pieces work perfectly together.

    Belated Happy Birthday to Truffles! It was Cooper’s gotcha day on Sunday, we adopted him 6 years ago and they guesstimated him to be around a year old at the shelter so he’s only a year younger than Truffles! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a great week and had a nice Easter.
