Wedding season is upon us and I want to share some lovely wedding guest gowns for women over 50 or 60, including one I wore recently. I also have some plant care tips and a bath vanity review for my sister’s new condo.
I’m in southern California right now to help my sister prioritize and plan renovations to her new condo in San Diego. So, of course we had to come up to L.A. for a bit to see our daughter, son-in-law and 18 month old Louisa. There’s more on my Instagram stories.
It’s Five Fave time with Annie and Cindy!
1. Front Porch Refresh
Recently we added more crushed gravel with shells out front along with white flowers to the terracotta pots. I’ve been throwing shells that I collect on the beach onto the “shelly” gravel.
Sorry to you all in the thick of winter…but this is Florida and the weather is good this time of year…get back to me in August with the humidity.
I brought out the hanging door basket (on sale now) and added a new, real ivy plant. The lady at the plant store told us that if you rotate bringing Ivy plants inside and outside they will not get spider mites.
So, I bought two ivy plants to do just that. The other one is on the coffee table right now and when I get back home I will exchange their locations.
There is bubble wrap in the bottom of the basket (leftover packaging) to lift up the plant.
2. Plant Moisture Meter
My sister swears by this long probe moisture meter for her indoor plants. It’s only around $15 and tells you when your plant is thirsty. I’m going to order one.
3. Formal Wedding Attire
I wore this Kay Unger dress to Mercedes and Mark’s daughter’s wedding last week. A couple of people asked me for the source on Instagram. I had to have it shortened quite a bit but I was comfortable.
Notice my T rack for hanging outfits and/or steaming them. Did you catch my closet organization post?
4. More Formal Wedding Guest Attire
Formal wedding guest gowns can get expensive. These are less than $500…still a lot of money but they are well made.
5. Timeless Stock Bath Vanities
My sister needs to update two bathrooms. I gave her nine selections and she narrowed it down to the six below. These stock vanities with marble and stone composite tops with sinks make it quicker for installation. Some assembly is required. Which are your favorites?
That’s what I’ve been up to. Hope it’s all good where you are!
