It has been my least favorite spring time for the last couple of days. It’s windy, cloudy, rainy and chilly. I am desperate in need of sunshine! 😦

Under this kind of weather condition, I have to put on something that’ll keep me warm. By surprise, I found this long cream jacket by Cynthia Rowley from our local TJ Maxx store last week for only $32.00 (retail price is $98.00). It’s an XS size. The sleeves are a little long so I rolled them up. The overall length is perfect, just slightly goes over my hips. Inside, I was wearing a bateau neckline striped t shirt from Old Navy I got for only $5.00 after discount a couple of years ago. Fyi, Old Navy is my go-to-place for comfortable yet super affordable cotton t-shirts.  🙂

To add a little fun to this outfit, I paired my orange heels from Nine West I bought years ago. I don’t exactly remember how long ago I bought these. I would say they’ve been with me definitely for at least 10 years. I know it sounds crazy! But I barely wore them after I bought them. Somehow, I fall in love with them again these days. Isn’t it amazing to feel refreshing when you discover the beauty of your oldies and you fall in love with them again? 😉

Hope you enjoy today’s post! Let the sunshine come to me soon please!!

  1. My brother recommended I might like this web site. He was totally right.

    This post actually made my day. You can not consider simply how so
    much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!


  2. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after going through some
    of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely pleased I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it
    and checking back regularly!


  3. Hey there are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world
    but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?

    Any help would be really appreciated!


    1. Hi there,
      I’m quite new to WordPress too. I’m using a theme which you could find thousands of themes on once you become a paid member. You can customize the theme and it does NOT require any html or css coding expertise. However, if you want to get more customization work done on your site, it’ll need coding. Hope this information help and good luck on building your own blog!



  4. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any


  5. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
