J Crew May Not Love Me, but Someone Does...

Ok, so I did not get a pair of the Heirloom Flora earrings from Mickey himself. And I am not complaining too much because I did use the free shipping and appreciated it a lot. Plus I am admittedly a JC newbie. I have not been a long time customer, so fair's fair. (this is one of the widely circulated theories, you know.)

However, the lovely, kind, and generous Summerilla did happen to legitimately receive 2 pairs through some crazy Lucy-Ricardo-worthy wackiness with addresses. And she was so sweet to share them with me. I got them in the mail on Saturday and couldn't wait to wear them. They didn't work so well with the pre-planned Sunday shower outfit, so I of course donned them today. I love the the sparkle they add to an outfit.

Wearing today - J Crew cashmere cabin popover (3-PP, I always think of you when I wear this!), white tank, Chicos boyfriend jeans, and braided rope rose gold bracelet. These earrings really are a perfect match to go with the rose gold bracelet or the clementine garden pearl bracelet...and I plan on wearing them with both. And really the muted colors make it work with just about anything.

And it was a nice day to add some sparkle outfit-wise because otherwise it was a bit of a bummer. After a very busy but fun weekend of in-laws in town, lots of indoor time because of the rain, kids running in Young Run race Sunday morning, and then helping host a bridal shower Sunday afternoon, I was pooped.

And oh yeah, poor Lucy's incision from her spay surgery last Monday is infected (4 days of rain + dog tummy surgery recovery = sure infection), so she's now on Clavamox for 10 days, has to wear the cone of shame for the next 7 days, and can't get the stitches out until next Monday. Which means I can't bathe her until then. (yeah, that's what I was really going for) And she has to stay "quiet" with potty walks only. Fortunately, she is suffering from CICD right now - Cone-Induced Canine Depression - which is when wearing the cone of shame will instantly induce depression and lethargy in the peppiest of dogs.

Fortunately for her, she'll have a quiet buddy this week, since M came home from school with 102 fever, dry cough, and headache. Yep, I think I know where this is headed. Will call doctor in the morning...

What does that mean for you? Lots of blogging time for me! I actually caught up on all my blog reading (even if that meant skimping on some commenting), so my Google reader is at 0...at least for the next 15 minutes! I definitely have some posts to catch up on and will start tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Polyvore for today:

Thanks again to Summerilla for the new fab earrings. Time for me to step up my game accessory-wise in the earring department, I think.

Tune in tomorrow for some more generosity...

pretty polyvore and beautidul earrings! If it is any consilation, I live 6000 miles from the USA and everyone is sick here too- something is most definetly going around!

GingerSnap said...

What a lucky duck you are! That is so sweet that Sumnerilla sent you those earrings! Aww :)

As for your puppy, you have me laughing so hard over the "cone of shame!" Poor Lucy. I'm sure she'll be fine, but her poor ego is forever damaged! My furbaby, Charlotte, has had to sport the cone of shame lots in her life...and you're right, it strips the peppiness right out of them. She was so upset! She even refused to walk for the first day she had it on!

Summerilla said...

Yay! They look fabulous on you! You know I still haven't worn mine yet?! I need to make a point to wear these beauties this week. Love the outfit, the cabin popover is gorgeous and looks beautiful on you.

Hope M and Lucy recover quickly!!

Rosa said...

Oh, that was so sweet of Summerilla, they are lovely.
I hope Lucy gets better soon, poor baby.

Suburban Princess - TY!

Lissa - TY! There are so many things going around here, sick-wise. I'm sure it's the same there. Hope you stay healthy!

Jemma Ruby - TY! It's interesting because it's not just 1 thing - we have swine flu, strep, and then what I cal RFV - random fever virus going around. So if 1 thing doesn't get you, another will. ugh.

GingerSnap - Oooh, I bet Charlotte was hating life with that cone. It's so pathetic, isn't it?

Summerilla - thanks again!! Can't believe you haven't worn yours! I think they would look fab with your Trentino cardi & jeans. Get on that... :)

Rosa, Patina, Cloggsy, Zoe Moet - TY! And yes, Miss Summerilla is just absolutely the sweetest - and even more adorable in person as some of you know. :)

The earrings look great on you, Heidi!
Hope everyone gets better in your house really soon!

FabulousFloridaMommy said...

Love the earrings on you AND I love your hair pulled up in the second pic...you should definitely wear it that way!

I hope M and Lucy both get to feeling better soon! :)

Drewablank said...

Lovelovelove the earrings on you!! Yay for weird, Lucy-Ricardo wackiness, donchathink? ;D

Don't you love that the earrings can go anywhere and everywhere? The office, errands, just hanging out, dinner, anything!! And I am loving that outfit. :)

My heart goes out to Lucy. I know what it's like to have a sick furbaby; I'm always restless until they're well. And add to that your dear M is under the weather too! I do hope that everybody gets well real soon! Hugs!!

Kathy said...

I just love a simple daily look like this! I did not even think about the earrings matching the rose gold. They look wonderful together!

So sorry about the sickness hitting your house. I called Seashell's Dr. this morning about a flu shot and the receptionist said to call back on Oct. 29 as that when it will be available for her age.

Poor Lucy! The cone is the worst shame.

Gerard said...

Hi Heidi-
I love your blog-inspires me to be fashion savvy. Still getting there, though! Sorry to hear about M and Lucy. LOVE the Mickey earrings and really like your nail polish posts.

Gerard said...

Oops-somehow this is registered to gerard's account! No he is not a closet fashionista!

HeidiG said...

DaniBP - TY!

FFM - TY! I don't often wear my hair up that way as I never feel like it's "right" but I will give it a try - thanks! :)

Drewablank - definitely cheering for the wackiness!! and TY - will be trying to work these earrings into many more outfits.

kathy - TY! I need to call our pediatrician again about the vaccines. M+E are not going to be happy if they have to get a shot, but since you need a month in between 2 nasal shots, a shot is the only way to get the regular vaccine. So worth it though. Of course, it may turn out that M doesn't need H1N1...

Karen - hehe, so nice to hear from you! When Lucy is over the whole surgery thing and back to normal, we have to get the doggies together. (C'mon, surely Gerard has a secret fashionista side...)
