What a week:
Hi guys! Whew – I just finished a whirlwind of a work stretch! I was originally scheduled 7 days in a row starting last Tuesday, which amounted to ~65 hours in the week. Another pharmacist was looking to pick up hours in our district, so I happily gave up my shift last Wednesday. I figured, hey I can do this now. Then the stomach bug took my husband down this past Friday and our dog got really sore on one of his back legs on Sunday, so we ran him to the ER vet (after losing Lucky a few weeks ago I’m overly paranoid!). Unfortunately, that vet thinks he may have a partial ACL tear in his leg, which honestly stinks. He’s been depressed (he’s eating, just overly cranky) after losing Lucky. We started a couple supplements to help his overall wellness, and tried acupuncture last week to no avail. He wasn’t having the needles (I don’t blame him!). Anyway, back to the vet we go later on today for a referral to an orthopedic vet. Husband is doing better. I think I got a slight version of whatever stomach bug took him down, and after all that work I’m BEAT. I cancelled my trip to see the horses today, and decided a nice quiet day up until the vet appointment this afternoon is just what I needed.
I missed out on all the President’s Day sales, but honestly guys – they were just normal sales. And I’ve noticed when they throw the normal sales at you that happen all the time anyway, that means they are getting ready to release better stuff the next week and then they usually have a better sale + free shipping LOL! So anyway, I guess of all the good holiday sale weekends, this was as good as any to work through.
So, I sat down this morning and thought about what to write about here on the blog for spring. You’ve probably noticed I tried last week focusing my time here more on creating actual blog written posts. Not outfit posts, and I saved the roundups for the end of the week. I tried so hard for so long just to become an ‘outfit blog’, but honestly that gets boring after awhile. I love styling outfits and creating new color combinations, but hey if I’m going to make my blog different, then why not write about it? So anyway, I hope you guys are enjoying the posts with more of a “visual” look with verbiage in between.
Leopard in Spring:
I mentioned awhile ago I’ve seen leopard pop up in stores more-so lately then in the fall. I’m still having a hard time wrapping my head around buying a new leopard top or sweater, but ahh it’s wearing on me. The accessories are getting me the most! In today’s blog post I wanted to share with you all the new leopard items for spring! Some stores have put their own spin on items, like lightweight tops, or different colors then brown/black which make the print more ‘spring-like.’ Like I said…. it’s growing on me! But, I guess if you stare at something long enough that happens?
Since the accessories are my favorite (fun, but not over-done?), I picked out my favorites below! And one leopard top. 🙂
belt | scarf | drop earrings | tie-neck scarf | blouse
hoop earrings | loafers | bag | sandals
How to style each piece? Go crazy and call it Kimmy Gibler style! Or… make it the best part of your outfit and wear a simple white top and blue denim/black pants. Or pull out a bold top like teal or poppy red for spring and wear it opposite of the leopard piece (i.e. leopard earrings with white top and colored flats…. or bold sweater with white/blue jeans and leopard flats). How to style the tie-neck scarf? Don’t wear it around your neck! Tie it around your wrist and make it a bracelet. 🙂
