I started watching for an affordable emerald green top. I stopped in at Coldwater Creek not expecting to find anything. I found both an emerald green tee and a silky top. I decided to go with the silky textured top because it could be dressed up and down more easily. I almost did not buy it because the plus-sized top was $10.00 more than the regular size. I know it takes more fabric to make a plus-size top but it also takes a lot less to make an extra-small one. They don't charge $10.00 less than the regular size for XS, so why charge so much more for 1X? If they gave the XS and S and petite sizes a price break, I could agree with the 1X + being more money. I will stop my rant now, but it does frustrate me.
My outfit today is inspired from the original outfit, but I chose a white jacket rather than white pants. I need to find just the right pair of white pants before trying that combo.

We also took some photos by the fence between our neighbors house and ours. Ilsa & Jim our neighbors love gardening and have some lovely old fashioned roses growing on and through the fence.
The necklace I am wearing today is a vintage necklace I have had for a long time. It is a favorite, but one I don't wear often.
I thought I'd share a couple of rose photos. They vary in the color from bud to full bloom from cream to white.
I hope you have all had a lovely Thursday.
