XCVI Pastels for Spring, People and a Link Up

Hello my friends. Last Wednesday, I mentioned how much community means when the storms roll in. More specifically, I shared how much this cyber community has come to mean to me. Would you have thought we'd Zoom, Google, and have chats through Instagram or Facebook so much? Me either, but I find myself catching up with friends, long neglected, and making new friends through the world wide web.

I also mentioned last week that I had a cool story to share about how these pictures came about. So at the end of this post, right before the Style 6 link up, I'll spill the beans. In the meantime, I hope to brighten your day with spring pastels, windblown hair and heartfelt smiles. ;)

Linen & Camo, Community & The Style 6 Link Up

Hello. It's spring break, but it's not a typical spring break is it? I know these days are unsure. Schools, restaurants, and store fronts are closing, while churches are choosing not to hold services. It feels so weird. I'm grateful for our health and pray for the health of others as well as the effect these closings have on businesses and their employees.

I'm also grateful for this blogging community. I want to hear how things are near you. Do you know someone personally that's infected with the COVID-19 virus? Are you fearful? Angry? I think we can share each others burdens, while lightning the mood when we can. The momentary distraction is a blessing.  This community is an encouragement and I'm thankful for each and every one of you.

That being said, in addition to this dress, I'm sharing a few things involving community today!

How I Style Wedge Sneakers

Like many trend trains over the years, I hesitated hopping aboard the wedge sneaker trend. However, when I tried on a few pairs I knew I'd cave. Now I have two pairs! I love the fun, casual vibe with added height wedges give. Both of mine are from Target - are you surprised? Anyway, I'll be brief with a few looks styled with these chic sneaks!

Of course a pair of jeans would be fabulous to pair with them, as are leggings, and just about any pair of pants.  For this outfit I grabbed my tried and true kimono vest, a graphic tee and those jeans.

Winter Bucket List Recap: What I Did and Didn't Do

Did you compile a winter bucket list? Over the winter I set out to do several fun activities to embrace life and be in the present. (If you missed it, go HERE). Well, we had a few cases of sickness, full schedules and the list goes on. However, I was still able to check off a few items. Of course I look forward to making one for the spring because this bucket list reminded me to have fun in the crazy. Here's my line up of what I did and didn't do from my list. Thanks again to Leslie from Once Upon A Time, Happily Ever After for organizing this!

Friday Favorites: Jeans, People and Places

Jeans, people and places. Doesn't that sounds fabulous? Maybe it depends on the day because I've had plenty of denim hunting moments where I felt frustrated with life. Can I get a witness? Over the years I've found some favorites that I'm sharing with you today. Also, sprinkled throughout this post are a couple more fashion items, life experiences and more. Thank you so much for joining in!

Sustainable, Luxury Fashion Accessories: A JORD Wallet Review

I have this wallet clutch. It's purple with a removable strap for easy toting. It's been my favorite for years now. However, there isn't a checkout I frequent that hasn't been gifted with material fragments from this special, purple wallet.  It's past time for an upgrade. So, needless to say JORD's timing to review a high-quality, eco-friendly luxury wallet clutch couldn't be better.

Back in the summer I reviewed one of their wood watch designs and loved it. There's something about works of art inspired by nature that draws me. And how the wallet is designed and manufactured is so fascinating! So as you've already guessed, I agreed to review this SUBERHIDE, sustainable wallet clutch. I'll explain more about suberhide, and an amazing cork oak tree from Portugal later in the post.

Amazon Prime Purchase & Wish List For Spring

Prime purchases are some of my favorite blogs to read. What does that say about me? I have a problem maybe? I must say though, it's not all about the purchasing (though I do add a thing or to my cart). I get so many ideas from seeing what your purchasing AND what you're doing with it. All that to say, I hope you enjoy today's quick round up of items purchased and items on my wish list!
