Everlane Combat Boots - Monday Favorite Things


Tis The Season to be Merry

The jolliest time of the year is upon us.  Let the shopping and merriment commence.  Of course, this  HO HO HO holiday will be unlike seasons past and instead will include the necessary precautions.  However, we can still enjoy the festivities with a new spin.  Our plans will be the opposite of last year, yet the joy of giving will remain intact. 

In a way, it reminds me of Cindy Lou Who from the story, cartoon, and movie, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (2000).   All the Who's down in Whoville were merrily singing on Christmas Day without ribbons, packages, boxes, and tags.  They were happy without the usual trappings of the holiday.  The Who's knew the importance of the holiday does not come from a store.  It comes from the heart.   The Grinch's heart grew three times this day.  The Grinch came down the mountain top and delivered the stolen gifts with a greater heart and an understanding of the importance of the holiday.  Nothing would stop him from giving. 

Thus, gift giving remains paramount in our crazy Alice in Wonderland environment.  Giving does not mean bestowing only presents, rather it is the kindness we share daily.  It is the smile, listening, connecting, and creating a beautiful scene for all to enjoy.  For instance, in my neighborhood, everyone has decorated their houses like the house in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)!  The scene is uplifting and the smiles are huge.   Which brings me to my favorite thing for this Monday - Everlane Combat Boots.


Everlane is a terrific company with quality apparel, accessories, boots, and shoes.  You will not be disappointed.  Currently, these numbers are on sale and selling out.  Be sure to follow the sizing guidelines.  I ordered half size up and they fit beautifully.  The brown is a deep chocolate brown, which is always difficult to obtain.  These boots are comfortable right out of the box.  You do not need to break them in.

There you have it.  Get ready to spread gaiety this holiday.  Do not wait for better days to come.  Instead embrace the spirit of Christmas and grow your heart three times larger.  We are blessed.  Let us share exuberance to one and to all. 

And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"
And what happened then? Whoville they say,
That the Grinch's small heart Grew three sizes that day!
And the minute his heart didn't feel quite so tight,
He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light,
And he brought back the toys! And the food for the feast!
And he, HE HIMSELF! The Grinch carved the roast beast!

Happy Giving! 

Until Next Time,

Tee-Shirts - Rag & Bone

  Ultimate Comfort "The tans will fade but the memories will last forever."  Town & Country Summer is coming.   You can feel it especially now with the sunshine filling the land in the Pacific Northwest.  The mornings are crisp with afternoons that are warm with a slight breeze.  The blue skies combined with the yellow daffodils, pink magnolia blossoms, flowers appearing, green trees, snow covered mountains and endless green growth is magnificent.  The eye is endless entertained, and the balm of the sun soothes the weary after months of rain, sleet, hail, snow and cold.  Soon we will be storing our cashmere sweaters and pulling out simple tee-shirts, shorts, bathing suits, hats and sunscreen. Overall, it is a happy time especially this year now more than ever.  We can finally breathe a sigh of relief.   While we are embracing the long awaited change, I have found the perfect tee-shirt for the Summer months to come. Rag & Bone is the answer once again. The quality of t

Red Bathing Suits

  Lady in Red Elizabeth Taylor - Pixabay "When in doubt, wear red." Bill Blass Red is the color of passion, danger, anger and ultimately love.  It is a hue that stands out in a crowd, commands attention, and flatters the owner.  Think of fashionistas sporting a red dress in film or in the real world.  Heads turn, smiles happen, and the world stops for a moment.  Red is the color that truly makes an entrance.  Finding the correct red can be daunting.  If you have light, creamy skin with a pink cast, often a blue red is best.  If your skin is olive shade with a yellow undertone, then an orange red is your choice.  This handy chart by RITO designer knitwear can help identify your personal color of red.  Now the fun begins.  Once you have your color wheel done, you can then choose a delightful red hue from lipsticks, apparel and yes for a bathing suit.  The next mission is finding a red bathing suit, which often is difficult.  One would believe that a red bathing suit would be av

Rag & Bone Sweaters

  Winter Sale Pixabay - No Attribution Required We live for sales these days!  Do we not?  Getting a deal on well made, designed clothing with a percent off. What more can we ask for? Currently, there are fantastic price decreases on one of my favorite brands, Rag and Bone.  During the winter months, and even in early Spring and Fall, there is nothing better than a warm cashmere sweater to drape yourself in against the chill.   Of course, I must recommend purchasing a sweater in a classic shape that is timeless rather than on trend.  Classic or Trendy?  Which brings up a good point?  There are always new trends for us to partake each season.  For instance, flared jeans are making a strong comeback.  Whereas skinny jeans remain front and foremost.  A skinny, cigarette or straight leg jean can be worn for years rather than with a flared hem. Another trend hitting the airwaves are loose trouser pants, which in my fashion opinion are reminiscent of pajamas.  If you are going to buy pants,

Jeans for Spring 2021

  Vi br ant Hues Pixabay - No Attribution Required The sun is out, birds are singing, and Spring is here.  I spent the day in the yard cutting back plants, grasses, and ferns in preparation for the new, glorious, and riotous growth.   The bounty is always stunning with an array of colors.  Later in the Spring, I will fill my pots with hues that add to the décor of the backyard and deck.  Yes, Jeans Please? What does this have to do with jeans in rainbow tones?  Well, the world is filled with beauty.  You must look for it and when you do sigh with delight.  Recently, my favorite celebrity diva, Suzanne Somers, was wearing and rocking skinny orange jeans with black pumps on one of her weekly Facebook videos.  Which, of course, were stunning on her.  Orange jeans are the perfect signal that springtime has officially arrived.   Of course, she is in desert and it is a bit warmer.  However, our day in the heat, will soon be here in the Pacific Northwest.  Right now, is the moment, to pull o
