Happy Monday! To start off this cloudy week, I am styling a striped hooded pullover top. It’s from Soft Surroundings; they are a little expensive, but their clothing items are soft and nicely made. I like that their catalog has so many unique pieces that I don’t see anywhere else. I have been ordering online from them and have been satisfied, so far, with the sizing. I bought this top in Small and they also have most of their items in petite sizes as well.
I really like the nautical tone of this top and thought it would be a great piece to throw over a tee or wear by itself as I am here.
This top pretty much stands for itself, so I didn’t add too much in the way of jewelry and accessories.
You can see I am styling it with dark jeans and simple silver disk earrings.
You have seen my block-heeled wedges before. They are by Franco Sarto. I love the neutral color, the cutouts, and the mid-size heel. They are very comfortable and go with everything.
My son, Max, took my photos today. Both he and my husband have been really supportive of my blog. When they aren’t around, I have to set up my tripod and iPad and run back and forth to check what the shot looks like! I’m pretty sure my neighbors wonder what I’m doing and think I’m crazy. My blogger niece who helped me get started with the blog told me I would just have to get over worrying about taking pictures of myself, and I have tried to remember that as I take these photos. lol! This whole blog endeavor has been quite an adventure.
This is the hill across from our house. I know I say this a lot, but–wow!–the foliage has been so beautiful this year! Everything is lush and green. Not just in our neighborhood but in all the surrounding areas–on all the hills that are usually brown and dry. I will be doing a post in the near future sharing some of the pretty sights here in south Orange County and San Clemente. It really is a pretty area.
