Starting a new job is not unlike starting a new school year. Wardrobe updates are a must. I have plenty of casual clothes for my working-from-home days, but I don't have too many options for meeting with clients. Here's a sampling of what's on my wish list:
1. Neutral sweaters in gray and tan
2. Pops of color - shirts, scarves, shoes, belts, bags
3. Dresses in dark gray, navy or black
4. A summer jacket
I chose to name my first blog "Painted Pink Roses" because pink roses have had a constant presence in my life since I was a little girl. This blog exists to share the beauty and love of home, family and daily life and to keep beautiful traditions alive. Painted Pink Roses is dedicated to my grandmother and great-grandmother, two glorious women who passed their love of beautiful things to me, my mother and my sister. And yes, roses are my favorite flowers, but I do not discriminate - I have all colors in my garden. I do think the pink ones smell the sweetest though. I hope you enjoy my blog!
In 2013, Painted Pink Roses moved to the Gerald & Joan Blog. To continue following our story, click here.
