Boot Weather is Here!

Posted on: October 9, 2013

A huge shout out to Tropical Storm Karen that brought heavy rains yesterday

and left us with temps in the 60’s today!  

A twenty degree drop from sleeveless dress and bare-legs to jacket and boots!


Why not welcome in Fall temps with Teal Skinnnies and New Black Boots….

These pants were clearance buy from JCP online and I love them, the slanted front pockets are perfect for hanging my thumb in….


I really love the addition of this striped ponte knit jacket as it is a great way to add pattern into an outfit. 

In this case I think it helps to lighten up the bright and dark tones of the teal and black.


Feels really great to wear these boots for the first time.  I haven’t taken them off since I put this outfit on today! 

At home, I usually kick off the boots,but loving this moment and making it last! 

Dear Readers. at least I can spare you my singing declaration that Fall is Here, every time I come back in from being outside today!  My kids are use to my nutty behavior and just laugh , not sure if it’s with me or at me, but don’t care either way.  I love being silly and playful and can’t imagine myself any other way… Of course, this is a side to me only my family sees!  I think that the shock has worn off and it has really set in that next year around this time, my boots will be in Ireland!  I have been in a daze since Saturday over this….  Have you ever had a twenty year dream within your grasp and been stunned that it is really happening?

I witnessed a dream in the making like this a few years ago when the owner of my husband’s company gave away a total of one million dollars to his employees that had been there for at least five years.   It was an incredible experience to be a part of a long dream of his .  There is such power in dreams coming true that have been with us for a long while. 

My Mother’s was to take a trip to Scotland, she was so weak and exercized every day to make herself strong enough and made that trip with my younger brother who she named Scott for her heritage. I am always inspired by the memory of  seeing her work so hard to make that happen,  and hearing my brother’s account of how much his legs hurt from all the hills and walking, yet my mother never once complained!  

Some dreams are worth holding onto, so don’t let them go!  


I am so grateful for this blog, as I had no idea when I sat down to write this that talking about dreams would come up! 

I am so grateful for all the blessings and wonderful people in my life.

I am grateful for a wonderful conversation with my daughter today.

I am grateful that during that chat, I took my jewelry all out and reorganized it. 

I am grateful to my mother for her example of unwavering faith and the strength she had because of that faith.

I am grateful that during my trip to Ireland , that I know I will carry my mother with me and be able to imagine more closely what her Scotland trip meant to her. 

I am grateful that we have an entire year to plan for this trip!

i love the combo of teal and black and white and I really like the striped jacket. I am going to have to look for one!!!
You are going to love Ireland!! We spent 10 days there this summer and I wish we would have been able to stay longer. The people are so friendly and the countryside is beautiful. We rented a car and although it was a bit unnerving to drive on the opposite side of the road it was also wonderful to have the freedom to stop for photos whenever we wanted. Have fun planning your trip!!!!

Good luck finding a striped jacket,they seem to be easy to find. I found mine at Sam’s Club while gorcery shopping… Everyone talks about how friendly the people are! Imagine how friendly my husband’s extended family will be!

I like this! I have a similar jacket and now you’ve inspired me to wear it a few more times before winter chimes in!

Glad to be of inspiration and to see you posting and looking so fabulous! You are inspiring!

I’ve got a lot of great looking outfits to catch up on here at your blog spot. I love this striped jacket mixed with the black and teal. (envious of your trip across the pond)

Thank you so much for all your wonderfull comments and I still can’t believe that this 20 year dream is coming true!
