I hope that you've had a fabulous St. Patrick's day. I wanted to share some of my favorite green things. Some of these lovelies are in my closet and others are on my wish list. But I have been slowing amassing green items over the last few seasons. This is a color that I generally shied away from because I did not own a lot of green or its complementary colors. So, it always looked weird when I would wear something green. But emerald and mint green have been drawing me in and I am finding it hard to resist. So, I have taken the plunge in small doses. And I really like what I have found. I was over the moon when Pantone announced that Emerald green is the color of 2013. And immediately, green offerings are everywhere to be found. Thanks, Pantone. My closet and jewelry box now love you. Do you have any colors with which you are obsessed? Is this a new find or and old friend?
Today was a one of those Sundays that I treasure. I awakened to sunlight streaming into my window. Luckily, I did not have any morning appointments. I did not set my clock forward last night. But with the wonders of modern technology, I remembered that Daylight Savings time has arrived. Satellites and cellphones are a godsend. I love this time of the year. The days are longer. The sun seems a little brighter. And I am more productive. Go figure! I chucked the gym for an outdoor workout and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Later, I meet friends to catch up on life. Noshing on goodies was an added bonus. I had my first macaroon today. Citron macaroons are divine! Moist, yummy goodness that I will have to seek out again. I made a pit stop at the mall to kill time and avoid a headache as the traffic on the highway was going nowhere fast. I made 2 lovely purchases and treated myself to a caramel macchiato. I am officially hooked on this drink thanks to my BFF who loves this beverage. And I am now home with a few items to check of my to do list before the work week begins. All this with very warm temperatures and sunny skies. What's not to love.
Did you have a lovely Sunday? How will you spend the extra daylight hours now that our clocks have sprung forward.
Friday evening are always tricky for me. I am usually tired by the end of the week but eager to see friends and get out for a bit of fun. So when my friend emailed me about a play featuring the works of Langston Hughes, one of my favorite poets, I jumped at the opportunity. I almost usually pick my clothing based on type of event, my level of energy, and expected temperature of the venue. It was a little nippy yesterday. So this is what made the cut. The turtleneck sweater is actually navy blue. But this one appears to be black. Do you have a go-to look for the evenings or weekends when you are zonked but still want to socialize?
