Sometimes you need to have both hands free. Like when you have your hands full of books, and yet you want to look for more.
I used to throw away those shoulder straps that come with bags, but now I roll them up and leave them in the bottom of the bag. There are times when I need both hands to be free or the bag worn on my arm gets too heavy after a few hours.
On Sunday we often go to Ming’s for sushi and then we might stop by Barnes & Noble so that I can get my book fix. Reading before I fall asleep is the best sedative I have found.
The Officer Blue long jacket from White House|Black Market is the one I showed you earlier here. I have enjoyed wearing it many times this season. The bag is the same one from my last post here; I just added the shoulder strap to wear it crossbody style. I have ordered several classic styles of smaller colorful crossbody vegan bags for my shop here. When I am shopping or attending certain types of functions I just need my wallet and glasses so I need not carry my big bag with all the things I need for the day. The jeans are Platinum Jeggings from Chico’s last year. The boots are a couple of years old by French Connection. The boots are so comfortable; I am just not ready to let go of them. They are a bit too youthful and trendy but sometimes on Sunday afternoon, I still enjoy wearing them for a few hours. The scarf is a couple of years old by Versace. There is likely a black Covered Perfectly top underneath. I wear the long sleeve versions often in winter because they add no bulk under my jackets, but they keep me warm.
I am wearing that new lip color I told you about in the last video here. It is called Free Spirit from Merle Norman.
The scarf in the banner for today is the newest one from my online shop here. I am enjoying adding a pop of bright orange with blue even though it isn’t a color I normally wear. The contrast is very pretty.
