Fantastic Friday to you all!
It’s blooming! ~ flowers, trees and my allergies!
Featuring more of hubby’s work….
Here’s my baby boy posing…actually, he’s looking at a cookie that I was holding. Yeah, this worked with my kids, too! 🙂
I look forward to weekends not only because of a much-needed reprieve from work, but I get to wear jeans! I love to add a blazer and heels to dress it up a tad or a t-shirt and sandals for a lazy weekend. I figured you’d rather see the polished version than the lazy one.
This is one serious looking woman!
Elisa at Fun & Fabulousness posted a photo of a Great Dane on her blog recently, and it reminded me of Tobi’s first encounter with my sister-in-law’s Great Dane several years ago when Tobi was just a pup….yep, that look says it all! Drew, the Great Dane, is no longer with us…and her momma really misses her!
Fashionable in his mint green polo….poor Tobi, he didn’t care much for the shirt either.
Have a super weekend everyone!!
Jacket: Theory T-shirt: J. Crew Jeans: 7 for All Mankind
Bag: Louis Vuitton Shoe: Jean-Michel Cazabat
you look great and Tobi’s first picture is superb 🙂
I’m short, so I think skinny jeans are a shorty’s best friend. Very classic take on weekend chic.
Lovin’ the puppy pics!
I just love jeans…it doesn’t matter what color, skinny, boot cut, wide leg…love’m all!! 🙂
Oh, except for high waist jeans…just not very flattering on me. 😦
LOVE the green jean!!
I love that gorgeous outfit!! Such great weekend wear!
And those pictures of Tobi are so cute!! I love his mint tee, and that pic of him and the great dane are adorable. Look at his face! ❤
Thank you Sam!
He was a styling pup waaay back before mint was even popular….although, he hated wearing that shirt!
You are officially my style icon…I love this look, it is so pulled together but it is so effortless.
Wow! What a super nice thing to say!
Thank you so much Bella! 🙂
1. those flowers are beautiful. 2. that jacket you’re wearing is fantastic! can’t wait to see more outfits!
Hopefully you won’t be disappointed! 🙂
You always look fabulous, I bet the “lazy” weekend look is also gorgeous!
Thank you Krista!!
Nah, loose jeans and t-shirt…nothing too interesting but def comfy! 🙂
Love your style (and that handbag, hello!!!)!
You look fantastic 🙂
I hear ya on the allergies…I started taking Flonase last year and it REALLY helped me with no funky side effects 🙂
Thank you so much! Haha…guess you like the bag?:) It’s SO big!!
I may have try Flonase…I’ve tried just about every brands for allergies out there!
Have a terrific weekend!
That Tobi knows how to strike a pose!!! I just want to snuggle him and give kisses too.
You look fab as always. Jackets just add a finishing touch to jeans and T’s.
I do look forward to cking in on my friend Jeannie!!! Have a great weekend! Oh, it was funny, what you said the other day about running and knees, I can indeed relate. My heart is 25, my joints, not so much. LOL. I’m running a little anyway, thank goodness for advil!
Why, my heart is 25, too! What happened to our bodies? 😦
Thank you sweetie for checking on me and your sweet comments. I always look forward to hearing from you….you make me smile. 🙂
As for Tobi, he’s a natural!! I’ll give him a hug & a kiss from you!
very beautiful as always.
Your trees are super beautiful. We are having an early spring as well.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Yeah, it’s gorgeous right now with all the vibrant blooms…I’m just afraid it will be an extremely hot summer since the spring came so early.
Hope you have a great weekend as well!
the structured blazer, jeans and heels is awesome for a casual friday… if i can ditch this last 20-30 pounds that needs to go away? i might try it!
happy weekend! and Tobi is a brave pup — i could never dress up Mr. Pickles, although the kids and i agree that he needs to wear a green velvet smoking jacket when i have parties!
You’d look like a stick if you lost 30lbs! Voluptuousness is a good thing…oh, I wish!
Tobi doesn’t care for clothes…I don’t blame him. Smoking jacket would be so cool!
Have a great and safe weekend!
See, this is the look that you seemed to be going for a few posts ago (I didn’t like) and yet, it is perfect here! You look terrific!
What kind of work do you do? I wish I could dress this way at our office.
Thank you! Glad you like the outfit!
I manage hubby’s business…no dress code at the office for me but I rarely wear jeans. Gotta look somewhat professional….usually slacks, skirt, blouse, etc…
I’m blessed to only work 4 days a week, so my weekend starts on a Friday. 🙂
Lovely pictures as usual ma’am. And I swear, you so don’t look fifty in your pictures. Haha. Really love the way you express your moods with what you wear; you do a fabulous job at that. I love you more, with each new post that I read. Cheers to the weekend! 🙂
Oh my goodness! How sweet are you!! 🙂
Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.
Hope you have a terrific weekend as well!
You look stunning, as always. A note re allergies. I suffered for 35 years with horrific allergies, red, tearing eyes, runny nose & sneezing. Then I started going to acupuncture for a serious back problem and voila! the allergies disappeared. That was 34 years ago and I still go for regular acupuncture sessions, sometimes weekly to boost healing from the massive rotor cuff surgery last fall, or for processing grieving the loss of my soul-sister in January to monthly for an overall body, mind, spirit tune-up. I use Community Acupuncture, that exists in many places. Their suggested donations are totally affordable: $15 for an hour for a senior, $20 for others. I am a BIG fan of acupuncture. And no it doesn’t hurt and I fall asleep during the hour for added rest.
And, if I may be so bold, as a professional photographer, I might suggest hubby may want to consider including your feet in the full body shots. Just a standard in classical photo tradition.
Tobi looks like a Blenhein Cav (Cavalier King Charles). I had several in my life. I think they are the most loving, cuddly and beautiful of all dogs. But they are not runners or watch dogs so now I have a Great Dane/Black Lab mix who I adore and love very much. You can see him on my BLOG. embracing frivolity.blogspot.com
Have a splendid weekend. It’s due to storm here in Berkeley, CA.
Hmm…I don’t like needles that much. Also, I live in a small town and no acupuncturist around here. I’m trying the natural way to fight off the allergies…honey! Now, I do like honey!!
I’ll tell hubby to get my shoes next time!
Yes, Tobi is a Blenheim Cav! I agree with you in all points!! Most lovable!
I think we’re to have a rainy weekend here, too. Happy weekend to you!
I like this look…very put together yet casual for weekend wear. Pictures of your little Tobi are darling. Now I know the secret to pose bribing! : ) ~~Bliss
Yes, it works every time! A cookie works with hubby, too! 😉
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hi Jeannie, modern and youthful outfit. I love the way you wear your T-shirts, with the wrinkle at the waist, you looks good. Your combinations are always correct. Perfect.
I think you must know about fashion/style very well! I like how you describe my outfits….you do a better job than I. I always appreciate your input!
Love the blazer with the pink T, it looks fab! Plus your pup is so super cute! Adorable!
Thank you sweetie! Tobi is a cutie, isn’t he?
He is pretty cute! My boyfriend and I are adopting a rescue dog tomorrow, I’m beyond excited!
How exciting!! You need to do a post with your new pup! Have a great weekend!
That is a perfect blazer. And I like the attitude in how you wear it.
Thanks Bella Q!
Hope you’re doing well in Seattle!! 🙂
I love this outfit!! Your blog is why I have a shopping addiction!
Oh, I see! Blame it on mom…
Nothing wrong with shopping as long as you can pay for it…right? 🙂
Love blazers with jeans; I have loved that look my whole life in every form since the 70s! It’s always “right”. And your FLOWERS! Some of ours came out and now we have a hard frost. So sad–good ol’ southern Ontario.
It’s gotta be one of my favorite look as well…my go-to weekend outfit. A quality blazer can last you a lifetime, and they’ll always be in style….just my humble opinion.
Sorry about the frost… 😦
Yes, those beautiful pictures of lovely flowers = ALLERGIES!! I’ve been in a foggy haze all week. I love your weekend look, so put together. And the picture of Tobi and the Great Dane is priceless! The look on his sweet little face is priceless!!! Love it! The Great Dane looks like a gentle giant. 🙂
Happy happy weekend!
Tobi’s expression IS priceless! He was such a cute pup…now he’s growing up, too. I worry about not having him around for much longer…I can’t even bare the thought.
Is it unhealthy to love your pet this much?
Hope you have a great weekend!
I don’t think it is unhealthy to love your pet too much, just the opposite!! Having a little lovey like him promotes good health and well being…..even years from now the memories will bring happiness. But don’t think about that right now…
I LOVE YOUR PURSE!! it’s been on my wishlist for a couple of years… sigh… one day…
love your blazer as well, the buttons are so fun
Thanks! Having a wish list is good ~ something to look forward to. Although, mine is now a bucket list! Haha! 🙂
Have a fun weekend!
Awwww, Tobi looks too adorable in his mint green polo shirt and just love the pose under the blossiming tree. Too precious … and Mom looks mighty fine herself in pink.
Hope your day is fabulous
Tobi’s SO photogenic! Seriously, he’d look cute covered in mud, or it might just be that I’m so crazy about him!
Hope you have a great weekend!
love your blog!!!
Thank you so much!!
Tobi is a good sport. Is your jacket linen? It’s a lovely combo with the pink and the jeans.
Tobi is good…as long as he gets a treat!
Yes, the jacket is linen, it’s my go to spring/summer material….LOVE linen!
Aww…Tobi is so cute. That first photo of him would make a photo for your wall or table top. He is really adorable.
You look effortlessly stylish and ready for the weekend.
I think we have more photos of Tobi than my kids!! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend!
