Besides being known for how he loved his wife, Asa will always be remembered for being a snappy dresser. I think I’ll always picture him in his bright green sport jacket and cream colored pants. Not everyone can get away with an outfit like that, but he sure could. It went well with the twinkle in his eyes and the smile he always sported. He pulled it off with warmth and charm.
I’ve always kind of wanted to be a snappy dresser myself, but the truth is, the closest I’ll ever come to it is by HAVING a snappy dresser.
I love this dresser (and the stuff on it) from Pottery Barn:
Mine (cough) is not nearly as stylish. It’s is currently under a layer of dust, littered with receipts and loose change, and in desperate need of an overhaul. Today it’s more like a gauche dresser.
Today’s Small Thing is to clear off your bedroom dresser in a snap!
I know mine will only take a few minutes to look dapper again. A light dusting, a quick removal of the miscellany and a deft straightening of the decor will have my dresser back in style.
POINTS: 40 for having a snappy dresser today
Oh, alright. How about 30 MORE points for BEING a snappy dresser today? Put something on with a bit of style! A necklace, a scarf, a bright blouse....who says heels are just for going out? Sometimes I dress up a little when I'm around the house because it makes me feel professional and productive - you should try it!
Have fun...and then tell us: what will you put on that says "snappy?"
Now, how about a little bit of Company Girl Coffee? I got SO behind on everything this past week...emails, art, visiting last week's blogs....I can hardly believe that it's Friday again! If I owe you an email, I apologize! I'm trying to catch up. This weekend I'll be out of town, visiting our college son but I'm going to really try and get around to visit everyone. Link up! It's a fun and easy way to get to know some really great ladies and their blogs.
