Happy Friday! I had other plans for a post today, but being that I had to be up super early to travel 2 hours to meet my parents at the hospital where my Dad is having a procedure and I was already tired last night, I decided to just let this be a random five for Friday post all by itself. We will get back to the regular outfit and fashion posts next week.

1- Earlier this week I discovered that I had been mentioned on GOMIBLOG. It’s a forum where posters make fun of bloggers. I made a thread called “Stupid things fashion bloggers say.” Ha! Here’s the comment –
” Luckily I have all the fashion bloggers to help me out. For example, changing your footwear from heavy boots to pumps is another great way to make transitioning to spring a breeze (https://www.savvysouthernchic.com/2019/02/transitioning-spring-color-fabric.html) or “swap out you wool coat for a lightweight jacket” (https://jolynneshane.com/transitioning-your-outfits-from-winter-to-spring-lighter-layers.html), or “spring is the time to ditch our heavy winter coats in favor of lighter jackets” (https://www.straightastyleblog.com/2019/02/how-to-transition-your-wardrobe-from-winter-to-spring-lighter-layers/). Phew! It is so good to know I can wear light layers as it warms up. I was so worried I’d have sweat all spring and summer in my wool coats, heavy sweaters, and boots. I actually really do like all of these bloggers, but I’m not sure who they are writing this stuff for — people that have never experienced spring?”
I’m flattered to be lumped in with Jo-Lynn Shane and Amy Ann from Straight A Style. I chuckled at the comment. I’m glad the commenter likes me, if not, how mean could they be? I’ll give them this one. Some of these things are no brainers, but then again, I know people who do want to be told what to wear and exactly when to wear it. The point is that you can subtly start switching out pieces whenever you want without having to go full on spring attire and freeze your butt off if spring isn’t cooperating. You can start mixing winter and spring pieces, and be comfortable and fashionable.
2- My favorite outfit of late has been skinny jeans, leopard flats and a cute top. I like this top so much I’ve ordered three of the short sleeve version (in different colors) and these jeans have become so comfy to me I’ve decided to replace my current black jeans with this pair in black.
3- The GYPO Spring Style Challenge is now open for registation, and it’s a good one. No more staring at the closet wondering what to wear- 31 days of outfits are styled for you.
There is also a Spring Work Wear Capsule. The work wear capsule gives you 22 days of business/ business casual outfits. That’s about a month of work wear planned out for you. Shopping lists are included for each capsule, but you can shop your closet too.
4- I’m a sucker for flutter sleeve tops for spring and summer.
How cute is this bold green one from Jane.com?

5- I also love a super easy pull on skirt for the weekends? Check out this camo skirt.

Hope you guys have a great weekend! Your prayers are appreciated for good results and a speedy recovery for my Daddy.
