Another Long Week

Another one in the closed column!! We are still very short staffed at work. At least my bout of insomnia is over. Let's look at what happened last weekend and most of what I wore this week. Last weekend was Mother's Day. My mom has already passed away, but we did take my MIL Mimi to church and then brought over KFC for her and my FIL Win. That's their favorite. I also made her a bouquet of roses from the yard.

I love the orange ones, and as a bonus, they smell wonderful !!

For myself, I received two new pairs of sunglasses. The first pair are from Dior.

I love Dior glasses because the lenses are large. I don't like the fact that the cases are almost always white, and get worn and grimy easily. These are cool glasses, though.

The second pair are Salvatore Ferragamo. I have never had anything from this brand before.

They are really pretty, with crystals on the arms. 

Onto what I wore this week, with the exception of Wednesday, when I forgot to take a picture. Starting on Monday:

This outfit is a pair of black slacks with sequin detailing at the waist. The top is a T shirt and warmup jacket combination from Onque. I always wear this combination together. I had a meeting to chair.

My necklace is costume and very old. It is from Avon.

On my left arm, two gold bracelets and my yellow gold wedding set.

On my right arm, an enamel/crystal ring from Saks and a costume bracelet from INC.

Onto Tuesday. We had a statewide disaster drill that day.

This dress is a pullover style. It's from MSK and I got it at Stein Mart.

It has peekaboo silver lattice on the sleeves. It's super comfy.

Although I forgot to take a picture, this is the necklace I wore. Here it is, worn on another day.

I forgot all about pictures on Wednesday. Here is what I wore yesterday.

This dress is from Taylor. It is a thick navy scuba knit with black elastic insets at the waist.

Even though this picture is dark, I wore a jacket that I have worn alot. It is a drak blue and black plaid, shot through with lurex.

I wore two necklaces - one lapis and one silver herringbone.

On my left arm, a diamond eternity band, a diamond tennis bracelet and a sapphire/diamond tennis bracelet.

On my right arm, an Italian silver bracelet, a sapphire/diamond ring, and my mom's diamond engagement ring.

Onto today.

This is a Style and Co chiffon blouse with metallic dots, and a pair of Georgiou slacks.

I wore three necklaces, all from INC. there is a short crystal one, and two longer strands.

And that is just about all, except for my Birchbox, which came on Wednesday.

Here's what was inside:

1) Hanalei Lip Treatment in Clear
2) Matrix Total Results Mega Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner
3) Comfort Zone Remedy Cream to Oil Ultra Gentle Cleanser
4) Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Face Polish

Well, I am looking forward to the weekend. I need some R and R. See you next week, I hope!!

Worn Out and What I Wore

Well, I have been dragged through the mud this week. I am having a bout of insomnia and I am covering for a bunch of people at work. We also had a big unexpected visit. Anyway, here I am, looking bad until May 11, when I finally got some sleep the night before.

On Monday, I wore my Mary McFadden tropical print sundress.

I wore my Ann Taylor classic black blazer on top. I wore a gob of turquoise jewelry, but I forgot to take a picture. But nothing is new, it's all stuff I wear regularly.

On Tuesday, another sundress and blazer combo. This time, the tropical print dress is from Halogen, and the blazer is from Worthington.

This swingy number is costume. I polished it up for the outing.

On my left arm, a gold/diamond watch and a black/white diamond ring.

On my right arm, a tiny diamond X ring, and a studded leather cuff.

On Wednesday, I had two big meetings to present at, so I wanted to look my best and most professional. I chose a vintage wool sheath dress for the occasion. I also wore dark hose and really nice shoes.

On top, I wore a dark grey longer length wool blazer from Astuces. 

Yesterday, I opted for a girly look, as opposed to the somber look of the day before. This is a dress that I found in Macy's deeply discounted Last Chance Clearance Section. It was super inexpensive.

On top, I wore my black lace Bar III baseball style jacket.

I wore silver jewelry - a long herringbone chain and a blue topaz drop necklace.

Today, it suddenly turned cloudy and cool, so I got to wear some wintry clothes.

This is a Joseph A sweater - it's gold lurex with pearl trim around the neckline. The knit slacks are dusty blue and are from Express.

On top, an Alberto Makali abstract/animal print long waterfall cardigan.  It's so pretty and figure flattering.

I wore a necklace/earring set that I got in Charlotte at the Taste of Charlotte in 2016. It's wood beads, bone tubes, and a jasper pendant.

Finally, I got my Ipsy bag in the mail :

Here's what it contained:
1) Trestique matte blur stick
2) Air Repair Complexion Quenching Facial Mist
3) Adess Organic Nail Laquer
4) Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum
5) Sur Medic Poreless Carbonic Peel

And that's a wrap!!! See you all soon !!

I Can't Believe It's Finally Over!!

Ugh. I have a yearly work project that I absolutely hate, and it happened this Friday. It's called CPOE - Computerized Physician Order Entry. It is designed to test our computerized pharmacy system, to be sure that different medications can be safely ordered together, and that all the black box warnings appear as they should. It's timed, and there is a lot of pressure to do well. It's over, and we did better than we ever have before. I credit this to the team that I assembled - we worked together like a well oiled machine.

So back to the fun stuff - what I wore. On Tuesday, I had a management meeting to lead, and this is what I wore:

This is a pair of lined wool slacks from Ann Taylor, and a knit tank and jacket set from Antthony Designs. It's very soft and never needs ironing.

I wore the Swarovski pin again, this time on a gold herringbone chain.

Here's a better look at the detailing on the knit set. it's very sparkly and pretty.

On my left arm, a leopard cuff from Betsey Johnson, and a smoky topaz flower ring.

On my right arm, a smoky topaz ring and a stretchy bracelet that is just plastic, but still pretty.

I rarely wear these brown suede shoes with the leopard wedges, but they fell apart today. Luckily, they made it through the meeting. I keep a spare pair of tan shoes under my desk for emergencies, so I switched them out.

On Wednesday, I wore this lavender and tropical print knit dress from eci. That is a Macy's brand.

Since the dress has black and gold chain print trim at the sleeves and hem, I wore my Versace belt.

You can see the trim here. I wore a three strand purple crystal necklace.

On my left arm, an amethyst ring and an amethyst tennis bracelet.

On my right arm, a diamond / amethyst bracelet, an opal ring, and two crystal infinity bands.

On Thursday, I wore this blue lace dress from En Focus Studio. I have four blue lace dresses, so I kept the two that I like the best, and gave the other two to my administrative assistants.

I wore three necklaces - sapphire, amethyst, and faux emerald, since the dress is very simple.

On my left arm, my Hermes CDC and my yellow gold wedding rings.

On my right arm, a sapphire cocktail ring, and a trio of bracelets - peridot, sapphire, and tanzanite.

For the big CPOE day, I wore a very comfy Antthony pants set. I have the same one in red and black.

I also wore a matching necklace and ring set - the center is moonstone and the outer stones are blue topaz.

On my left arm, a silver David Yurman bangle and a wide tanzanite ring.

On my right arm, the matching ring and a bracelet of amethyst, agate and pearl.

And that's it, for a very busy work week. Tomorrow, I may have to report for jury duty. Let's hope not.
