This outfit came together lickity split.  It was just one of those shopping trips where I was so lucky to find the pieces that spoke to me and truly reflect my style.  The pants I already own, last seen here, but I was on the lookout for a new pair of black pumps.  Since I started working again in December I've had to update my work appropriate attire a bit.  My old black pumps are not only a little too high (4 inchers), but also worn out!  So in finding the black shoes, I then found the jacket & necklace (on sale, yippee!), and the blouse, that works ever so well with the jacket.  Also on sale (yippee skippee!).  As the A-Team used to say "I love it when a plan comes together!" 

Mama Said Monday

When the nuggets were young, but old enough to understand me I started a little code talk between us.  It's very simple and short, it goes like this:
Me, "Hey Jack and Ella, guess what?"
Jack & Ella, "What?"
Me, "I LOVE YOU!"
We all smile and laugh.  Now that they're older, they'll say, "guess what" to me.  It's fun and it's a little thing that is special, just between us.

This week I'm in Florida!  Ahhhh.... warm weather!  It's the last visit to our dear Mimi's home.  She passed away in October and to our dismay the house sold in a week!  But our family is so kind and letting everyone use it for vacation before the closing.  I'm very excited to enjoy the sun, sand, and most of all my family.  While I'm away I'll be having a few guest bloggers to join us for the week.  I hope you enjoy them!

Linking up with Mode Monday, Peacoats&Plaid & DC InStyle!

Have a great Monday!
