Spring Fashions at Belk

Michael Kors has arrived at my local Belk store! It is so new that they were still setting up the department today.

Skinny jeans are still an item for spring. I've paired these white ones with a black knit tank of my own and this fabulous buttery black jacket with ruched three-quarter sleeves. The necklace is by Erica Lyons and my own nude heels are by BCBGeneration.

There were lots of crisply tailored shirts, sweaters, jackets and the ubiquitous khaki pants in the Lauren section.

The three-quarter sleeves of this pink and white stripe shirt have no buttons, just an open cuff. Perfect for an easy casual look without having to turn them up each time they slip down. I am wearing it with khaki ankle pants and my own Kenneth Cole Reaction sandals.

Every woman in my family goes to Belk when she needs a dress. They are known as the south's dress address.

This wrap detail dress is by Ralph Lauren.

I found so many great dresses I had a difficult time narrowing them down to three!

This royal blue knit dress with three quarter length sleeves was available in several colors.

For the mother of the bride or groom there were many special occasion dress for women of every age. This blue gray sleeveless dress came with a matching bolero jacket.

Belk also has a large selection of beautiful clutch bags which look really smart with dresses.

It was great fun chatting with all of you who showed up for the photo shoot today. I hope you found as many great items as I did!

Thank you to Belk for making this post possible.

Daffodils and Sunshine

On Saturday we had a few hours of sunshine and temps above forty degrees for the first time in a long while.

Today I carried the faux alligator skin bag I told you about earlier. I really like it a lot! The size and shape are perfect for me. Sometimes you don't know how much you will like something until you take it for a "test drive". I will look for this size and shape when I invest in a higher quality bag in the future. The navy blazer is by Austin Reed, the red jeans are from Chico's, the boots are by Ralph Lauren via T.J. Maxx. The golf print scarf is from Ross.

Here you can see evidence of my one good day in the yard so far this year. I cut back all the monkey grass edging the front gardens, trimmed shrubs and irises back and added mulch. In about another week we should have nicer weather so that one can go outside without shivering the whole time.

Working in my flower gardens has always given me serenity. I so look forward to warmer weather when something new seems to pop up from the earth each day. So far daffodils and few other early bulbs are the only things to bloom. The pink cherry trees should be in bloom next month. I'll be sure to share a picture of those with you.  

Below is one of my favorite little shade garden paths from last summer. 

Have a wonderful Sunday!
Thank you for visiting with me in my gardens.

March Roars In

This was the brightest sky we saw all day today. 

Between the snow, the sleet and the freezing rain it wasn't much of a day for any outside activities. We wanted to test the new camera so we took advantage of a little break in the weather to snap this photo on my deck. Obviously we need to work on those settings.

We were on our way to join friends for dinner and a small birthday celebration. Knowing that our friends are true champions of the casual elegant look I dressed in jeans from Talbots, blue blazer and bright red scarf. Since it was 27 degrees I also added layers. There is a long sleeve red tee and a navy thin knit cardigan underneath. The boots are Ralph Lauren via T.J. Maxx and the bag is old. We arrived at the restaurant at the same time as our friends. My friend Dee and I had a good laugh because she had on a multicolored scarf but otherwise we had on the same thing.

Thank you for all your good wishes. Mickey is feeling much better today. 

I hope you have a wonderful week!
