Layering Up!

Posted on: January 9, 2014

My Dear Readers, please excuse my two days off blogging but these crazy swings in temperatures that went well below our normal winter weather wreaked havoc on my sinuses and I was dealing with sinus pressure migraine level headaches…


Today’s look is entirely evolved around keeping warm…

I layered a red Loft sweater under my red floral blouse, but that wasn’t enough for this woman who gets cold easily, so I added my quilted zip up sweater from Steinmarts.. 

The addition of the third layer did the trick!


These red jeans were a Christmas present from my dear husband who saw me admire them at BJ’s.  

I originally planned to wear my newest boots that came in the mail yesterday and my first purchase from  I quickly switched to my knee high boots for added warmth…

FYI delivery was pretty quick and I also ordered Birkenstocks for just $26.99,They are now back up to $57.99!   Remember I love to score things off season for great prices. I ordered them in both pink and black, perfect for walking in the summer and for days when I feel my boho side wanting to play…


Dear Readers, I hope you are all staying warm and not dealing with the flu that has been having a big outbreak!  I wanted to say that I love this look with the red floral blouse, and red jeans and imagine it styled with my creme moto and tan booties sometime in the future…


I am grateful that my dear husband snuck back after seeing me look at these jeans and surprised me with them!

I am grateful for my fireplace and the reason to light a fire these past few days.

I am grateful to my dear brother who drops wood by anytime he finds it on jobsites and the  pile that will get me through the rest of winter!

I am grateful that the crazy temps in the teens are gone, can you believe we are expecting a high of 72F degrees by Saturday????

I am grateful that my headache was gone today!  

I am grateful that my 18 year old, Nicholas started his first job today, working for my husband’s boss and that he really impressed him with his computer skills !

Sorry to hear that you weren’t feeling well! That was really sweet of your husband to gift you the jeans. Red jeans are a great addition to your wardrobe. Perfect for remixing!

Love your floral blouse!

The weather has been insane…sorry you aren’t feeling well.
