Good morning and happy Thursday! You may have heard that there are massive power outages here in California as our state’s largest power company, Pacific Gas & Electric, is trying to avoid wildfire risk. Before dawn yesterday they flipped the electricity switch off across 20 counties and more shutoffs are possibly scheduled for today effecting more than 2 million people. Stiff dry winds had been forecast and last year’s heavy winter rains followed by extreme dryness and summer heat have created dangerous amounts of natural fuel. Winds can bring down lines, sparking wildfires that are nearly impossible to contain and after being blamed last year for the deadliest fire in California’s history, PG&E is taking this extreme precaution.
My heart goes out to anyone who is without electricity this morning and I hope you were able to get the needed supplies to ride this out! We have a generator at work so it’s business as usual for us.
Today I’m styling what could be work wear or even a fun night out with friends, plaid ultra stretch skinny pants from Kohl’s with this twist front top from Macy’s.
These Simply Vera Luxury Ultra Stretch skinny pants are so comfortable! They come in 7 other prints, XS to XXL and are buy one get one 1/2 off right now. They pull on, have faux pockets and are a high rise that sits at the waist. You can get them in short, average and tall lengths too.
This INC twist front button up top from Macy’s is a little different for me. I rarely wear black but I thought maybe with my silver hair I could try it. I really like the twist front detail and it can be dressed up with these stretch pants and dressier shoes or would look equally stylish with a pair of jeans and loafers. It does come in 6 other colors if black isn’t your taste.
I thought this Vera Wang snake print satchel I found at Kohl’s would add a fun element and snake print is really on trend right now. It’s 20% off right now with code AGAIN20. It has a lot of compartments and at this price point is great quality.
I always like a purse that has long enough handles that I can throw is over my shoulder so both hands are free.
I think it’s important to add trending items to our wardrobe to stay looking current but still stay within our own comfort zone too. The subtle plaid print of these stretch pants and the snake print accent of the satchel are a fun statement without being too over the top for me.
