Today’s smoothie wasn’t as green as my outfit because I am low on spinach, I used blueberries, strawberries and non-fat yogurt and it was quite tasty. Today is Hump Day Wednesday and the week is dragging after last week’s short one but I am plowing through in anticipation of another great weekend.

I simply adore this green rhinestone turtle ring, his head and legs move and just looking at it makes me smile. It had a clearance sticker on it for $3.00 but I don’t think it was correct, however, they let me purchase it at that price.

Today is going to be another hot and humid summer day but it’s FRI-YAY!!!! When I got home yesterday it was still 99 degrees but today it’s supposed to be cooler and stay in the low 90’s. My outfit of the day are closet staples purchased a couple years ago and are my go to comfort clothes. White denim capris and a sleeveless top always feels good and is cool enough to wear in this weather. I ventured into the back of the closet to find my summer sandals, these are one of my favorites purchased last year from Bear Feet Shoes. My jewelry is always a mix of gold and silver and today I added a bronze ring, bracelets, and earrings. Bronze is a metal that I also like to wear especially in the summer.
I chose to cover the maxi dress with a top and belt because I’m not comfortable wearing skinny straps to work. The temps are expected to reach 100~ and we have a scheduled fire drill at 2:30 this afternoon so I might have to remove the top while outside.

Why is it that when you are on vacation you tend to buy things that you wouldn’t normally wear at home. That happened to me while in Florida a few years ago when I fell head over heels in love with these gold tone gladiator sandals. Now I can count on one hand just how many times I have actually worn them! It’s not like they are uncomfortable, they are just a bit too shiny for my taste. I have decided to wear them just one more time before they are packed with the rest of the Goodwill donations.
Yesterday I was so busy and exhausted after cleaning out the crawl space after a minor plumbing problem that I didn’t follow my Sunday evening routine. Normally on Sunday nights I prepare my outfits for the week, they are pulled, matched and hung neatly on the outside of my closet door. In the mornings I don’t have to worry about what I am going to wear or waste time trying to match shoes and accessories which for me is vital because I definitely am NOT a morning person. In addition to not having my outfits prepared, I had a restless night thinking about Malik going to an amusement park with his friends today. Can’t imagine why I am so anxious but I can now appreciate how my grandmother felt every time I left the house when I was in High School. I prayed that they have safe passage to and from the park and he did send a text that they had arrived safely.
Now on to today’s miss matched outfit which I didn’t notice until after viewing the pics – not one color in this shirt matches the pants!

It can’t get any better than that but I do hope that the rain holds off because tomorrow I plan on setting up a table at the Flea Market in Middletown. Over the past few weeks I have doing some serious purging around the house in hopes of making a few extra dollars, but anything that doesn’t sell will be donated to Goodwill!

I don’t remember where I purchased the bracelets and ring, but I bought the earrings from a shop in Rehoboth Beach back in the 80’s
