Two Teens And Their Mama: Whatever Is Lovely Part Five

Whatever Is Lovely Part Five

I think Carrie is busy with Create28 today, but I'm going to share Whatever Is Lovely anyway, because we all need some loveliness!


--Have you ever seen a "cloud bow" before?  I'd never even heard of one, until I saw this picture, taken about an hour away from my house in a town called North Bend.  This one was even more lovely because it happened at sunset.

--Earlier this week, my friend Shaunacey lost a very special friend.  I was "introduced" to Nicole last year through Shaunacey's blog, and every day I went to Nicole's facebook page to read her updates.  She was one of the most beautiful, lovely, kind souls I've ever encountered.  No matter what difficulty she was going through, her posts were filled with positivity and light.  Even though I never met her, Nicole uplifted me daily, a complete stranger thousands of miles away.  Please go here to read more about this amazing woman, who will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and people around the world.  Her message about Metastatic breast cancer is so important, and needs to be shared.

--New York Fashion Week is just wrapping up.  So many lovely clothes! At nyfw.com, you can see video of every show, and yes, I've watched most of them because I'm weird like that.  My two favorite looks are both by designer Naeem Khan.  Someday I will go somewhere that requires a dress like this.  I hope.



--However, this is my big fashion statement most days:  yoga pants.  I feel like my workouts are a little easier when I'm wearing something fun, and animal print is always a lovely bonus.



--Starting March 2nd, The Blended Bloggers will be running a lovely new series called Style Perspectives:  How Would You Wear It?  Each week one of us will be the featured "fashionista", and on Wednesday's we'll all share our interpretation of the outfit.  I hope you'll join us - even if you don't have a blog, you can tag in on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. Here's a sneak preview of the prompts:



Have a lovely weekend!

  4. A cloud bow - how beautiful! I'd never heard of that. I read Shaunacey's post earlier this morning. So sad. What an inspiring and beautiful person Nicole was. It seems most things on the runway are crazy, out-there outfits, but those dresses are lovely.

  10. That red dress is the BOMB. I have so many nice dresses, but Military Husband and I spend so much time at home now. Hoping when we pcs we will get out more. I really had plans for us to go to a dance this year, but life got in the way. Ahhhh. We will be in a bigger city next year, so I expect to be more fashionable than my usual t-shirts and shorts, haha.
