What is with this Weather?

Posted on: February 17, 2013

I  may have lost my mind choosing this outfit on such a cold day!  We had temperatures in the 60’s then snow the next day!  It didn’t stick, but it left a cold windy Sunday!  

IMG_2121I was really glad to have sweater tights on, but nowhere near warm enough with the sun that disappeared behind clouds and the whipping winds….Next Photo really shows evidence of the wind!!!  This is an outfit I have had in my head for awhile, as I love black with the tobacco colored boots.  I tried this with my riding boots of this color, but they just looked like galoshes and not right with the volume of the dress.  I’ve seen lots of bloggers who can do that look successfully, but think it doesn’t work for my petite height and just makes me look shorter and wider.  No woman who has worked hard to lose weight wants that!  

IMG_2124We spent Sunday going tanning (to get ready for the Cayman trip)  and going through my husband’s choices of what to pack for the trip.  That took much longer than I anticipated and before we knew it, it was time for dinner!  So glad we were having leftovers and were able to have dinner at a normal time.   On Monday’s agenda is a morning haircut and that finishes up preparations for the trip, yeah!  Now I’ll have the remainder of the week to concentrate on blogging and home schooling.  I have already made lists for everyone of what to do, so can have a more relaxed week before the trip!  I hate doing things last minute and feeling unorganized!


My husband really wanted a back view and took several photos, so this one is for him!

Linking up with Visible Monday

Dear Readers, Sorry for such a non inspiring post, but my brain is so full of preparations to leave my three son’s home alone… This is a first!  I hope any of you who have this federal holiday off are having a wonderful day and enjoying the three day weekend! 

Gratitude:  I am grateful to have a 26 year old son willing to take on the responsibility of his siblings so I can enjoy this vacation!  I am grateful that the tanning salon has a special for February for free tanning the entire month(we’ve gone 3 times already).  I am grateful that my husband is packing his own bags for this trip, as I usually do everything due to his work schedule.  I am grateful for taking a break from all vacation plans, housecleaning , home schooling and blogging on Saturday to spend the day at the mall  with a friend looking at Spring fashions (we were at the mall for 5 hours!)

I hope you have a wonderful vacation (I am sure you will!). This is a great look; I love brown with black-and-white. Thanks for linking up!

What a cute outfit…love it that you put boots with it! Have a great holiday and do not worry about the 26 year old in charge. I am sure they will be fine. Just enjoy!

thank you and I will enjoy it and not worry because I will be too busy!

Tracey, I LOVE this outfit! Not sure why you think this is an uninspiring post because I think you look beautiful. Black and brown is such a chic combination and the white gives it added pop. The dress is adorable! Who is it by?

Isn’t it amazing how time stands still when we are shopping? Five hours feels like five minutes!

By the way, I hope that you have an amazing trip!

Thank you, I just felt tired and not like writing, so didn’t feel it was up to my usual standard… This dress is one I ordered online two years ago through Chadwicks, but it is made by Connected Apparel. And yes time flies when you are a lover of fashion and are in your element. This is the second time my friend and I did this at different malls.. so lucky to have a friend who likes this as much as I do!

Have a great time! Send us pics so we can live vicariously through you on your vacation. I had to laugh at your comment about being grateful that your husband packed his own bag cuz I know how you feel. When I pack my bags, it’s a production! I really don’t want to repeat it with his stuff but I always do.

I am taking my camera and will have photos, but we run and are so busy any postings will have to be once I get home… I am going to have posts that I am pre-doing while I am away, so continue stopping by.
I am sure a lot of women can identify with my gratefulness concerning hubby doing his own packing…
