How long after the holidays does one have to wait to wear the blingy things again? Is there a rule like the “no white after Labor Day” law that says pretty shiny sparkly things have to stay tucked away until next November??…not that I’ve ever paid any mind to the rules! I’ve been on the island and Mr. Salmon has been in Vegas so we haven’t seen each other since last week. [I know you’re wondering “what does this have to do with blingy things??!!”] Well, I figured this calls for tonight to be date night, and for me date night calls for bling bling bling ;). Now bear in mind that, unless we want to drive into the city, in my little suburban heaven the fine dining establishment [note no plural on this] is a jeans-are-the-attire-d’ jour kind of place. So I thought “rise to the challenge Suzie and mix your bling with some jeans” [sometimes life is so simple]. And while I was at it, I thought “this is also the perfect opportunity for me to do a little remix on those holey jeans I love”. Even better, I thought “if I’m breakin the rules and wearing something twice in a row I could actually wear the shoes that I had to abandon yesterday because of the rain too!” [two wrongs make a right don’t they math kids?]. So I thought about the shoes…and the holey jeans…and the bling…and this is what happened…
Shoes-Michael Kors; Jeans-Gap Always Skinny; Necklace-The South Dakota Cowgirl custom order; Scarf-gifted…pashmina from a friend who brought it from Ecuador; Blingy Sweater-Snob purchased at a little boutique in my town trying to help our women dress up their blessed jeans; Purse-Vintage bling; Red Ring-H&M.
So you still have time to save me from myself before I head out tonight. Is this going to cut it? Or should I change? And while we’re at it…do I look fat in this :) (family joke)?
Seriously love you guys!
