A little Gypsy soul for this weekend.
Hello everyone and happy almost St. Patrick's day to all. Looking forward to decking myself out in green tomorrow and heading to our favorite Irish spot for some Guiness and Shepard's pie. There are a lot of other dishes I love but usually end up having Shepard's pie because it is so good at our spot and goes well with Guiness beer. Do you have a favorite beer or Irish dish? I am sure a lot of you have your favorite sports and traditions also, then I am sure some of you may not even celebrate the holiday. I would love to hear what your St. Patrick's day favorites and traditions are.
Wanted to pass by quickly while I had a free moment and post a couple photos from over the weekend. I recently won a Instagram contest that Fashion Junkee was hosting, and got a $50 gift certificate. As usual it was hard to select what items I wanted, I want a lot of items from their site and they recently stocked a lot of new pieces so I always have a hard time. Be sure to pass by their site because I am sure you will find something you will love also.
I decided to grab a gypsy soul tank and a pair of denim ripped black jeans. I also got a cute fringed black cardigan, but didn't take any photos if it yet. I will be sure to take some soon and post them.
Here are my weekend photos and tomorrow I will try to pop in and post a St. Patty's day photo if I have a chance. I start six weeks of physical therapy this week and looking forward to this six weeks because it is a lot of massages and stretching. I don't know if I mentioned on her recently that I was diagnosed with MS and Sjorgen's. I have been getting injections and taking new medication along with my Botox injections I was already getting and the occasional epidural for my lower back issues. Aging isn't fun but the MS diagnosis has turned out to be in a sense a relief to know what is going on with my body finally but scary as well. Praying that it doesn't progress and that I can keep it under control somewhat. I am blessed to have found an amazing specialist who has a team of doctors and nurses that are highly educated. Just the injections, medications, diet and lifestyle changes I have made in the passed four months has made an amazing impact.
Enjoy my photos and be sure to check back later in the week for some more outfit of the day photos and fashion finds.
Once I return from vacation I will have some style steals from celebs and tv shows to post like I have in the past along with some home decor posts and of course some amazing deals and bargains.
My Pebby Forevee the mountains are calling, John Muir quote. I got this one in black and the off the shoulder style. Excited just placed a order this week for another tee and finally ordered a muscle tank to try out. Can't wait to receive this style to review for everyone. I love the off the shoulder cut, my favorite so far. I have a crew neck and it's super cute but the off the shoulder cut is amazing. They remind me of how I cut my old concert shirts and tops, which I have done since I was a teen. I even use to get creative and cut the sides to tie and the back to have holes or strap looking pieces. Will have to post some photos one day. I use to get creative when I would go to a concert and make my own unique tee from a band or concert tee.
These are the black ripped jeans I mentioned above from the Fashion Junkee website. They are high waisted and fit amazing. Very slimming and comfy. The rips are amazing and all the way down the legs. Love these and for sure one of my new favorite jeans. I have been looking for a pair of black jeans for awhile and these will get a lot of wear. You can find a link for this amazing shop in the side bar on my blog under favorite shops or you can go to www.fashionjunkee.com. I will be adding a link you can click that will take you direct to the site just have to log on with my laptop or desktop to add that. Currently I am typing on my iPhone once I return from my vacation I plan to spend some more time working on my blog. For now i spontaneosly log on and post when I have free time.
Last post is the black floral kimono and a cute tank I got at Love Culture awhile back. The Love Culture tank says, Love what you do and do it well, with flowers. I have a lot of tees and tanks, then maxi skirts and dresses along with jeans and shorts from Love Culture. Use to visit the store weekly to see the new pieces they got in. Was super sad when the store by me closed down. Now I have to order online which I don't always like if I don't know how certain items run. I have started to love these smaller shops because they have amazing customer service and they will go above and beyond to measure the items for you. It's like having a personal stylist to help you out. I have had the best customer service with Fashion Junkee and they always go that extra mile to help me any way they can. They also make returns a breeze. Love culture being a larger store you don't get a quick response and a lot of items are final sale. They do have a lot of cute graphic tees and tanks for amazing prices along with Machine jeans, which I have really fallen for. They are stretchy fit jeans with lots of holes and destruction which I love. My favorite jeans are destroyed denim, I also love a dark denim with a white stitching like Miss Me, True Religion and Rock Revival have that style stitch. It is very body flattering and makes your curves look amazing. Awhile back I found a blog article online about finding the perfect fit jeans, and how to avoid buying mom fit jeans. This article had some amazing tips from pocket placement and stitching. Both key parts to finding amazing jeans. I need to look up the post I think I may have book marked it and I know I wrote a post awhile back when I had read it. I have always been drawn to certain brand jeans and a lot of people would think that I like these brands because they are high end but really has nothing to do with it, it's all about the way they fit and feel. I never pay full price or retail price for any of my jeans. I have a lot of high end brands but I spent very little. Check back in my blog I have a article about my favorite jeans and finding similar styles for less. If you love Miss Me and Rock Revival jeans check out LA Idol jeans. They have the similar stitching, pockets and bling accents you find on the higher end jeans along with a similar fit for less.
This is the Gypsy Soul, gray tank. This and the black floral kimono are also from Fashion Junkee. The jeans I am wearing are blue destroyed denim American Eagle jeans. I wore the fashion Junkee jeans with the bottom photo and same kimono but didn't take a full length shot.
Love this tank, it is made by the same company that makes the Happy Camper tank I got last week, but I went with a medium this time and may even try a small my next order just to see how it fits. The large is very big on me and I have to wear a tank under it but the medium is also a little large, I think they are meant to have that flowy look to them. Either way going to try out a small to see how it fits if I decide to order another tank by the brand which is Triumph.
Off to bed early have not been sleeping well. Hope you all have a fabulous night and enjoyed a couple photos from the weekend. Excited for my vacation. Can't wait for that mountain air. Good night everyone xoxo ✌️❤️🍀
