The Martha Prep continues...

I spent the day yesterday shopping with my mom for an outfit to wear on Thursday. (So much FUN!! - I hadn't been shopping in a long time -trying to be frugal after all).  We ended up at Nordstroms.  I have avoided Nordstroms in the past because I thought it would be just too pricey.  Well, what a great experience we had there!  I found a short sleeve, dark pink, rufflely sweater (I will take a pic) that was on sale and quite reasonable.  The closure hook was not quite in the right place, and the sales associate called the alterations dept. who came right up and fixed it!  At NO additional charge.  I am SO shopping there more often!!

So that is ONE of my options.  With a black shirt underneath and black pants.  And a lime green necklace.  or maybe my pearls....hmmm. 

My other option is this


I purchased this from Persnickety Palm in Leesburg VA.  I just discovered this store, and this piece from Shopaholic in Alabama .   It was on sale, plus and addtional 20% off!!! Oh, Linda at Persnickety Palm was SO helpful.  So helpful in fact that she is overnighting the shirt to my hotel in NY.  I had left a message on Sunday, but they were closed Sunday and Monday.  She isn't even charging me any additional shipping!!  Now that is FABULOUS!!  I think my lime green necklace will look good with this too.  Will wear with black pants.

Today I am trying to get the house ready for my departure.  I am heading to the grocery store momentarily.  I have been cleaning and doing laundry.  Still need to make up some pizza dough for Thursday night.  I will be home, but will arrive so close to dinner that I won't have time to make the dough then.  And the of course I have to host the JAS meeting here tonight!  AGH!  I don't have time to host a meeting!  I need to pack!
