The South Wing

At what point after your kids leave home to you take over their bedrooms? During Christmas break of Katie’s first year of college, we repainted and redecorated her room, for the young woman she was becoming rather than the big kid she had been. It’s lovely now but is still her room. This is Jackson’s first year gone, and I have 6 paint samples up on the wall and as I was looking them over today, I realized that I am going to ‘borrow’ part of his room.

I’ve been hesitant to put up and blog on fashion ideas because I haven’t come up with a way to take picture that don’t involve a mirror and my cell phone held in front of me. I decided today to use part of Jackson room, when he’s not here, just for the backdrop. I’m hoping to start out early next week with my ‘capsule wardrobe’ choices for our DC trip. In the meantime, these pictures show you the ‘process’.

I jokingly call the half of our house where the kids’ rooms are the south wing, and the part of the house where the master bedroom is the north wing. The living room, dining room and kitchen are all in the middle. Our home isn’t that big, but we get a kick out of it. The south wing is empty right now, so I’ll put part of it to use for picture taking.

Our school district is on ‘inclement weather’ (otherwise known as snow days) day off number 18, yes you read that right, 18. I don’t know about you, but after a day or two of lounging around in my sweatpants, I like to put on ‘normal’ clothes and feel human again, but still be comfortable. These pants are from QVC, a company called “Women With Control”. These are so comfortable,flattering, and affordable, I just ordered another pair in black to wear to DC. You can click Pants to order. The top is also from QVC, from last year, brand us LOGO and although this particular one isn’t on the website anymore, this One is similar.

This picture taking falls way outside of my comfort zone, but on this new 50+ adventure I’ve embarked on I think it’s a great way to put myself out there. My decision to be a part of the Rodan + Fields business is also out of my comfort zone, but I am so impressed with the products, the company and the people that I have met that are a part of it, that I’m leaping into it with both feet!
