Remix Challenge Day 9- Snow Showers!

Posted on: March 22, 2013

Snow showers today with temperatures in the high 30’s just two days ago we were in the mid 60’s… It’s no wonder this stomach flu is swirling around now when all the temperatures are going crazy and my sinuses are acting up…

This is yesterday’s look on my dress-form, Ruby, who so kindly stood in for me during my time of need… I had dreams that I might photograph myself in this outfit and today’s look, but who am I kidding I am too worn out for that and besides it was snowing!

Notice the snow!  I was getting dressed for this shoot when my boys came in to tell me it was snowing.  I instantly went into my closet where I had packed away my thickest sweaters and resurrected this one for one more showing..  If I was going to stand out in the snow showers I was going to feel cuddly warm… or so I thought,  the sweater didn’t keep my legs warm…

I really cheated here by just adding foundation, blush and lip color, skipping eye make up all together , and that hat disguises all kinds of sins.. It was either that or another look on my dress form and quite frankly I thought my readers deserved better than that.  I’ve shown the boots, sweater and purse before and my love for these navy suede boots by Kathy Zeeland via Qvc.   The sweater is also from QVC’s in house Denim & Co and my very first ever clothing purchase from them three years ago!  I didn’t realize it until I just started mentioning it,but this entire outfit is via QVC except the purse which was a Christmas gift two years ago by Stone Mountain purchased at BJ’s.  The purple dress is by Tiana B. via QVC  and I love the elastic empire waist.  The hat is by Isaac Mizrahi Live,  once again via Qvc.  My apologies that none of these pieces are still available because I am the Queen of Clearance Shopping!

Dear Readers, hope I come up with an outfit carrying over an item from today’s look because when I instinctively ran for my cozy sweater I totally forgot to think ahead to which item I would remix for tomorrow’s look.. I am a planner and traditionally think one step ahead, so should be interesting..Nothing like being  forced outside your comfort zone.  I actually like being forced into situations where I am forced to be more spontaneous,  since I really like that side of myself! Do you like staying in your comfort zone or being pushed?

Gratitude:  I am grateful for the snow showers that didn’t leave any accumulation, but brought joy to the kids… I am grateful that my son is feeling much better today and didn’t sleep the day away.  I am grateful that after only three hours of sleep, that I was able to take a nap today… I am grateful that I found the energy to do a photo shoot. I am grateful that today is Friday and I can take a blogging break!

I am a creature of habit, but stepping outside of my comfort zone is welcomed every now and then. The colors all really come together nice in this outfit and I love you in this hat! Heather
