Asos Bloom

I saw this shirt on and loved the rich jewel tones of navy and green.  I probably could have gone with a size 10 instead of a 12 but it's hard to judge clothing when you buy it online. My sister doesn't buy clothing too often online for that very reason. So let me segue into what we did this weekend. Sister loves my jeans. So Saturday night we went to a local mall that has kind of gone downhill since I left. She found the same jeans in quite a few sizes smaller that I wear (I'm curvy, she's got a straight figure). They looked terrific on her.

She also picked out an orange, belted dress but was concerned about the length. I told her to try it on with the jeans as she gave me a funky look. "Trust me," I said. It looked fantastic on her as a tunic. And we accomplished what we set out to do. "I need outfits to match two pairs of shoes." I'll take some pictures of her and feature her outfit in an upcoming blog. Can't wait. She looks so cute in her outfit.

But on to today's outfit. The weather was nice on Friday morning when I took these pictures. As I sit here writing this on a Sunday evening, it's windy and rainy as we are awaiting Isaac's arrival. School is closed tomorrow so sister and husband get the day off. Guess where I'll be?
