The Suzanne Blouse by Daniel Rainn

I love finding affordable and versatile pieces. Daniel Rainn clothing fits into this category because it can easily shift from day to night or casual to dressy. I fell in love with the Suzanne blouse because of it’s pretty charcoal color and lace necklace. What makes this top work in any season is the 3/4 sleeves, the soft fabric, and the color. The stretchy rayon blend fabric feels amazing on and you won’t get too hot wearing it during the spring and summer seasons.

Feel free to dress up this blouse with trousers and pumps. Or layer a blazer over it for more conservative office look. If you want to do something completely different, why not add a long vest over with slim fit trousers?

I want to thank Daniel Rainn for sending me this blouse and the one I wore on Monday’s post. So glad I could share a brand that I recommend to all my wardrobe clients.

Graduation Day!

Yesterday was my oldest son Evan’s virtual graduation. Earlier in the day, before the ceremony, he was given the Arion award for band by his peers. (This award recognizes amazing musicians.) Both of his band directors came to our house to personally give it to him. It was such a wonderful moment.

It was bittersweet to not see him physically walk across the stage but I tried to make the day extra special. I had Melissa, my blog photographer, do a mini photo shoot with him in his cap and gown. Hoping to share those photos next week. We then watched the ceremony together with many of my family members watching as well from their homes. At the end of our watch party, we had a family zoom where we congratulated him and shared advice and memories. Here is what I shared with my son:

Words of Wisdom

Evan, I am so proud of the young man you have become. Congratulations on this major milestone. I am very sad that you didn’t get celebrate like most of us did when we graduated high school but I do hope the kindness and love that has come out of this pandemic has touched you like it has me. Bring these gifts to Indiana University and be a light to others you come in contact with.

The one piece of advice that I would give you is to not hold back when it comes to meeting new people and having new experiences when you begin your schooling at the Jacobs School of Music. I remember loving every minute of playing with other amazing musicians. Your love of music will grow and it will give you gifts that keep on giving even after you leave. Savor each moment because it goes by so fast.

Don’t forget about us back at home. (A call or text would be nice ever so often.) I love you and will always be there for you when things get tough. Stay strong and work hard every single day. And practice! I love you Evan.

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! XO
