Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Charlotte Russe

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For this post I asked a co-worker to take the pictures in order to give my sons a break.  Sometimes they complain even though I provide them with food, shelter, water and lots of love! 

As you know I work in West Chester, PA, and similar to the Marlton office it is surrounded by greenery which makes for a better background than my backyard.

This outfit was simple black and white, a classic combination.

God blessed us with another gorgeous summer weekend and today I am plowing through Monday like a turtle on steroids!   This morning I had to add extra spinach and kale to my green smoothie because I over did it with the sodium and suds.   Yesterday afternoon good friends of ours stopped by the house after leaving Maryland en-route home to New York.   Anytime someone visits us from Maryland I always have just one request – BRING SOME CRABS!!!!   In our house summer isn’t complete without sitting at the table covered in newspaper with a bowl of melted butter and hot sauce cracking open steamed crabs covered in Old Bay Seasoning.   Of course I must wash it down with a cold beer!   Add some boiled corn (which I forgot), potato salad and shrimp and everything is right with the world.

 

 

This outfit was laid out last week, and it’s perfect for today because it’s covering the results of too much sodium and suds but oh it was so well worth it!

Monday…Monday…Monday…coming off a high carb, no exercise weekend and it shows!  Saturday afternoon we went to a friend’s Bar-B-Que and the food was awesome!   They had jerk chicken, fried chicken, barbecue chicken, mac and cheese, peas and rice, green beans, corn, salmon cakes, pasta salad, green salad, ribs, beer, wine, coolers and other adult beverages.  I had a few pieces of jerk chicken, peas and rice and  2 salmon cakes because our hosts are from Trinidad so you know it was authentic finger-lickin, slam yo mama good!  I thought about taking pictures but decided to only feature the 3 bottles of hot sauce, one of which was the “3 5 7 Mad Dog” and I definitely needed a shot of milk after tasting this one!

I am counting down my 2-day work week, I so love when a holiday falls in the middle of the week. Today I threw on something cool, comfortable and wrinkle-free, a spaghetti strap maxi covered with a tank top. Can you tell I am ready for my 5-day staycation!!

If you read my Monday blog you know that my week started out mis-matched because I was unable to prepare my outfits for the week on Sunday night.. It didn’t get any better and to make matters worse I stayed up late last night watching the 2-hour premier of Dallas (OMG IT WAS MUST SEE TV) which is why I have 2 OOTD entries today. The dress is BLUE and white polka dot but the shoes were BLACK and white polka dot and even though my son said, “mom it looks alright – I’m tired of taking pictures , I changed my shoes and accessories and this what I ended up wearing to work.

The rain has gone and the sun is shining brightly (in my eyes) ~ Spring  colors are popping and today it’s Pink!

“Ding Dong…Avon calling…” I am an Independent Sales Rep for Avon but I don’t ring customer’s bells however, this slogan always comes to mind when I wear pink. This morning I started with a red top because it pairs well with a black white combo, but later changed to the pink which works equally well.

In keeping with the Avon theme, my jewelry includes my Avon 125th Anniversary Charm bracelet, a CZ ring, black beaded necklace and Sunshine Nail polish. If you are interested in ordering Avon products, please go to my website http://www.youravon.com/ablake48 to place an order – the new way to “ding dong”! ((^_^))
