Black & Blue with Color Too!

Posted on: February 22, 2013

Today’s look is one I really love!  I can’t say it enough dresses and skirts with boots really make me feel like my best Sassy Self!


This is my newest scarf made by a c0-worker and dear friend of my husband’s .  I love all of the colors in this and how much it brightens up all the darks in this outfit. 

IMG_2257My first instinct was to put my black boots with this outfit and I talked myself out of it immediately in favor of another opportunity to wear my favorite navy boots.  When I first started making over my wardrobe two years ago and purchased a few pairs of boots, I reached a real turning point when these navy ones made it into my wardrobe.  I felt special as it was the first time in my life that I owned boots that weren’t black or brown.  That’s not exactly true I did own a pair of short red ones at the time.  It was a key for me because I was returning to taking care of myself after years of not doing so… 


Here I removed the scarf to show more of the jacket,which I recently washed in hot water and dried on high to shrink and I think it turned out pretty well.  I don’t think it shows up well but there is black gross-grain ribbon down the front on either side of the zipper and across the top of the pockets.  

IMG_2270I have to end with my Sassy Pose which also happens to show the buckles on the side of my boots!  

Dear Readers, Is there any item that you added that put you over the top and that has a special meaning to you.  I think this might be a common phenomenon among those of us who are fashion obsessed.  Am I alone in this or can some of you relate?  If so please comment as I would love to hear from you!  This will be my last post before I leave for my vacation, but please follow me  to get alerts as I will be posting(or my son will be doing it for me) while I am away.  

Gratitude:  I am grateful that yesterday and this morning began with chaos, that sorted itself out by the afternoon.  I am grateful that my husband is secure in knowing who he is and hie own integrity despite it being questioned.  I am grateful that I have taken some time to myself and actually read a book this week.  I am grateful that I have finished the blog posts for next week.

Love the scarf! I have a necklace that always completes me!

Beautiful outfit, love the boots, skirt and scarf.

The scarf is so pretty! I love the neutral outfit. I have a pair of red shoes that I got on sale forever ago. For some reason I always feel extra special. Enjoy your trip! Heather
