Pink Sweatshirt for Spring

Happy Monday, ladies! The first weekend of May was gorgeous here in Kentucky. I got out of the house for a few hours on Saturday and ran some errands (social distancing, of course).

It felt great to be out and about, and the fact that it was warm and sunny made it even better. I ran into Target, and this cute pink sweatshirt caught my eye, so I grabbed it.

I don’t typically love sweatshirts, but when it’s pink with puffy sleeves, I can do that.

My tan sneakers are sold out but I found a couple of pairs that are similar. These are a great option for early spring when it’s too chilly for sandals.

I added my pearl necklace and a link necklace both from Baublebar. The pearl necklace is sold out, but I found a similar one here.

My Sunday style is a lot more casual these days, and this was perfect for a Sunday at home watching our worship service online.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~ In addressing the church of Corinth, Paul writes, “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and loved by everybody.” 2 Corinthians 3:2

In a sense, a mother/grandmother’s life is one long love letter to her family, friends, and God. Nothing would make her prouder than to know that her family has tucked that letter in their wallets and purses–better yet, hidden it in their hearts–and lived the same kind of other-oriented life that she has lived.

She would want her family to look for the best in one another. To “make do” with what circumstances they’ve been given. And of course, to stop and look at the sunrises and sunsets, for as she wrote, “they are gorgeous to behold…the handiwork of the Lord.” -Author Unknown

Have a blessed day!

  1. Can you please resend your post from 1/31/2019, ESSENTIAL UNDERGARMENTS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

    Thank you

  2. Yes, we need more American made things. I am trying not to buy anything from China anymore i look at the labels. We have to win back our country. We already have to wear masks …doesn’t it look like we are starting to follow China in so many ways? Its awful and I feel very bad for the Chinese people under the communist rule. Thanks for listening.

  3. Just thought I’d let you know that I didn’t get an email from you this morning. I checked your site for a post, and here you are! Cute outfit.

  4. I took a look around the Amour Vert website. They have some really nice things, and although they are sort of pricey, they are not crazy pricey. I like the look of their clothes and the natural fibers. My husband and I used to be cotton producers here in the US until a decade or so ago when the WTO made some kind of phony-baloney deal that penalized the US for growing cotton and basically gave our market to Brazil. The market has come back very recently, but it’s hard to get back in with the cost of the equipment required. When I was a little girl, I remember my great uncle (he was a cotton trader) talking about touring fabric mills in various states. Those are long gone now, as are the factories that used that fabric and thread. We have to get this infrastructure back!!! When we do, the prices of US made clothing should be very competitive. And, for me, Whether we’re personally growing cotton or not, and no matter what fiber is being milled, it will just be so satisfying to see things put right. I have faith it’s going to happen.

  5. I went out furniture shopping with my daughter on Saturday and Sunday. AND we had lunch in a restaurant (We are in TN too). The restaurant is one of our favorites, and we sat inside and they were very responsible and distancing all the diners. The furniture store was VERY busy, and most people were trying to “social distance” as much as possible.
    I’ve been looking at the places I like to shop and have found almost all have their items made in China – ugh.
    Loft, Ann Taylor, Chicos, Soma, White-house Black-market, and the list goes on. I’m willing to pay a bit more for US made items as some others have said, BUT the US will need to also step up and figure out how to produce without being so over priced. I did see that Karen Kane has kept her items in the US, but they are pricy – good quality usually though.
    Thanks for all you do!!

  6. I saw a bright pink blazer in the Top 10 2020 April 2020. The write up was about no show socks, not the blazer. But I love the blazer & would like to get one like it. Can you tell me where you got it? I enjoy your blog so much & have followed it for a long time.

    Blessings, Marlene

  7. Love the pink top and it looks fabulous with your coloring. Yes to more USA made products. I actually went through my pants and jeans yesterday to see which ones were made in China – 9 pair were. Of the other many pairs, none were USA made . Isn’t that sad? Our state Texas, has opened up a little and we went to a restaurant over the weekend and it was wonderful! I hope your state gets people back to work soon.

  8. Yes, I would love to see American made options:-) I am being very particular now about where items I buy are made. I don’t mind paying extra to help out American companies.

  9. Love this, I don’t know why but I have really taken a liking to soft pink while being home these days. I so wish Target had not stopped shipping to Canada. I will have to look for something similar else where. I can easily do this outfit as I was able to get the shoes in the taupe from Nordstrom Canada, and can’t wait to wear them when things open up again. The weekend was beautiful here as well. Sat out yesterday by the pool it was in the 70’s and repainted my black urns for my ferns. Back to cooler weather today and maybe until later in the week. Oh well!

  10. Agree with more clothing made in USA! More of an investment, but there is a reason for that! I am now more adamant than ever to seek out quality clothing (and other items) ONLY from countries with reputable practices and ethics. Now, more than ever, it matters.

    1. Yay to your comment Kimberlee! The products made in other countries are less expensive for a reason. So many people working in horrible conditions for small wages, so that they can buy food, pay rent, etc.

      On another note….. i just ordered the pink sweatshirt, Cyndi. I’m not one who wears a lot of sweatshirts either, but give me pink with puffy sleeves and i love it!
      Thank you for brightening our day!!

  11. Love this! And yes, PLEASE more USA made items would be wonderful!! Yes, pricier but would rather buy pricier, quality products from USA brands over any others!
