Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Saturday I ran around in Avon’s super casual Tina Cold Shoulder Top in Purple and the sun charm from the Daily Charm Necklace Set!  (See other charms from the set featured here and here.)

The top is made up of thick ribbed t-shirt material, making it a bit too oppressive to wear in any kind of actual heat, but it’s not remotely see-through!  I found that the heavier material wasn’t as forgiving towards hiding my mama belly as a thinner material would have been.  If you need something that isn’t clingy, skip on by this one. The cut outs on the shoulders are generous, but still small enough to not look ridiculous on someone (like me) that has weak shoulders.  I chose the purple top and, while I love it, it’s more orchid/pink than a traditional purple.  If you don’t do pinkish hues, pick up one of the patterned tops instead.  I do love that this top actually has some length to it so it covers my trouble spots – and the rounded bottom in the front further helps with tummy concealment…total wins!

On Tuesday, I was chasing rainbows in Avon’s Rainbow Riches Necklace! We had the rain – just needed the sun!

I love the modern twist this necklace provides with all the colored stones!  Since so many colors are included, this necklace can be worn with anything and bring a burst of color with it!  I am also really digging the newer Avon necklaces that have the chain extender built into the chain itself instead of it being a separate chain you link onto the end of an existing chain – they look nicer in the back when your hair is short or worn up and you’re not wearing a top with a collar that will hide it.  In addition, you can lengthen or shorten where the necklace falls according to your preference or whatever your outfit calls for – super convenient!

Wednesday evening I savored the stormy evening (thunder, lightning, downpours and power surges) cuddled up on the couch at home with no power for about an hour and took the opportunity to post my AM selfie in Avon’s Colorful Beaded Earrings in Blue!

These are smaller than I anticipated – and I couldn’t be happier about it!  I was concerned the beads would hang down a lot closer to my shoulders, which I generally find bothersome – particularly when I’m working.  While the overall size delighted me, I was also thrilled to find they are much more dainty and lightweight as a result!  The bead color was lovely, but I feel like the beads themselves look a bit cheap against the delicate scroll work of the rest of the earring.  All that said, I can’t complain too much since they are insanely affordable!

Those are all of the past week’s selfies! What was your favorite and how would you have worn it?!

      I generally leave cold shoulder blouses alone because I have weak shoulders – no need to draw attention to that flaw! This top is pretty forgiving in that regard and the color is amazeballs! I’m just not a fan of how thick the material is – I was overheated and it’s not at all forgiving in how it lays.

      I love the earrings, but wish they’d chosen colored see through beads rather than the ones they did…I really do think the beads cheapen the look overall.

    I’m just go ahead and call the Rainbow necklace a Prid necklace. I love the Pride necklace.
