A Sister Day

My sweet sister and I recently spent the day together shopping and having a delicious lunch at 128 Pecan in Abingdon, Virginia.

Look! I am wearing flat shoes!

That's my fabulous friend Karen. She is the owner of Foxglove Antiques Etc. in Abingdon. I always find something special here! When I saw those bronze and marble lidded urn cachepots from across the room, I said, "Come to momma!" 

There are so many beautiful objects and quite a large selection of design books in the shop.

The garden statuary behind the shop is not to be missed!

Below is a picture of my living room with the new addition of the lidded urns to the mantle. When I see something that speaks to me, there is no doubt in my mind when I buy it. Whether it is urns or that fabulous Ivanka Trump bag I am holding, I know immediately that I want it. If I have to talk myself into something, I walk away. This ensures that I am always happy with the objects I choose to bring into my life. I don't buy anything now unless it takes my breath away.

On this casual sister day, I wore jeans and a silver-gray tank and an old necklace from Chico's with an off-white blazer from Express. The crocodile-embossed leather satchel is by Ivanka Trump via Saks Off 5th. The flat shoes are by Halogen via Nordstrom.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Wise decision to only buy what you are really convinced about.
Your flat shoes are so elegant, love them!

Have a nice weekend, Susan,

Dawn said...

Uh, where is a picture of your "sweet sister" on "Sister Day"?

Andrea said...

Great shoes! You look wonderful like always!

And I finally started buying only what I absolutely love not too long ago. There is no place for "okay" pieces in my house or closet!

Nice look Susan. Like the urns.

She was the photographer today but my sister isn't fond of having her picture taken. I did ask her.

Buying only what "speaks" to you and what you love is a wonderful practice. As always, you inspire.
