Warm & Cozy
Posted January 18, 2013on:
Well the Temperatures dropped and it is a miserable wet and cold Thursday. What better way to cope than to find my cozy sweater, a pair of skinny’s and fur lined boots… May not be the most fashion forward look, but works for this kind of day! I apologize for the quality of photos we took them on the porch to stay dry and the lighting wasn’t great!
Did I mention that big drops in temperature wreak havoc on sinuses, so woke up to pain when I moved my head. No worries there though I took some great medicine and it went away. It just makes mornings go a little slower.. Must be why we didn’t start home schooling until 11:30 am.. Notice my metal dolphin sculpture. It was a birthday gift from my mother and I cherish it!
Funny thing about this warm sweater… It was my very first purchase from QVC three years ago and I have loved it ever since…. Who knew purchasing online could turn out so well, but this was the beginning and now I am hooked. These jeggings are Diane Gilman via HSN. Before I know it I am going to be one of those reviewers who confesses that I own 50 pairs of her jeans. I use to think that was crazy when I first read some of those reviews. Not anymore in fact let me count how many I now have….I didn’t check my closet, but off the top of my head, I think I am at 12 right now. In only a year.. oh yeah, I could easily become obsessed….I’ve never even owned more than three or four pairs of jeans before. Then again there are trouser jeans, jeggings, skinny jeans and straight leg, boyfreind and bootcuts these days…
The weather update has changed and what was originally suppose to be an inch of snow was predicted to be 2 to 4 inches. For Virginia Beach that is a big difference. Then, later the forecast changed and it was north and west of us, we didn’t get anything. Oh apparently it snowed but melted immediately as it didn’t get quite cold enough. That is the constant story here in Virginia Beach. My daughter who is at Longwwood, north west of us had several inches but it should melt today…A huge disappointment for my 17 year old who had to go to school on time while cities all around us were delayed two hours… I decided to pose in my purple puffer coat (currently on clearance at QVC) and Sporto boots. If I have to have a puffer to keep me warm, at least it has to be in a Fabulous color!
I also realized one of my two pairs of Talbots printed slacks are in Paisley too!
Gratitude: My daughter’s psychology professor called her business partner and vouched for my daughter and she was given an internship!!!! I am grateful that my daughter, Ashley is so strong and focused, as this final semester at Longwood University is going to be her toughest yet with an internship and a professor who required her to do community service hours. I am grateful to have had the strong mother who fought the school on things for us and set the example for me to do the same, as I have a meeting with my son’s Principal and a fight on my hands….
As always, my dear readers, your comments are welcomed and appreciated. Come back tomorrow and see my look of the week in my Red-Orange Jeans.
