Good Morning, friends!
What an interesting week this has been-one of emotional contrasts, for sure. We have been first hand participants in the Circle of Life the last few days, and it helps put things into perspective.
One of my closest friends lost her father earlier this week, so I did what we do in our community at the time of death. I cooked food for the family, I called, I texted, I prayed for her and those close to her.
In the midst of all of this, we got the phone call we had been waiting for. Our daughter-in-law was in labor and our sweet little angel was on the way!
Death and new life.
And on it goes.
Hannah Grace was born right after midnight on October 3, the same day as her great-great aunt. I can’t wait to get a picture of the two of them together! Hannah is a gorgeous baby with gobs-and I mean gobs-of dark hair, and she is a perfect blend of her mommy and daddy.
I can’t show pics because my neither of my sons want photos of their kids plastered all over the internet. I totally understand, so I honor their wishes, of course. But, goodness, I do want to share their adorable little faces.
You will just have to trust me that they are cutie pies!
Now on to our fashion moment for today…..
Kut from the Kloth is like premium denim without the premium price. I can totally justify paying $80 for jeans because the cost per wear is so low. I have had these since summer, and I don’t even know how many times I have already worn them.
Ponte Knit Blazer
I was happy to see that Gap is still offering their super comfy, super versatile Ponte Academy Blazer. For some reason, I am unable to copy the image, so you will need to click over to see it.
Anyhoo. I bought this little number on sale last year and I love it. It polishes up my outfits and the knit (when I was a kid, this kind of fabric was called double knit…now it is called ponte knit-sounds so much better, don’t you think?) makes it soooooo comfy. It is very versatile and comes in a variety of colors.
Crown Vintage Shoes
DSW carries my new favorite shoe brand, Crown Vintage. These shoes are just the cutest ever and quite unique. I love that the styles are a bit quirky and decently priced. I wish they were as comfy as my Clarks, but they are certainly 3-4 hour shoes for me.
