Freezing Poses & Fun Filled Weekend!

Posted on: January 26, 2014

Saturday was a very busy day beginning with lunch with friends,  followed by a wue tasting and dinner with  my husband’s  new boss and  his wife.

Prior to heading out ,I posed for photos in high winds and was freezing, imagining  and feeling compassion for what real models go through….

Don’t forget It’s Visible Monday, so go check out some other wonderful bloggers!


I went for the three layered look again this time beginning with a blue t-shirt followed by a Leopard Ann Taylor cardigan.   The loepard has grey’s , black and a touch of blue .  Three layers was not enough for a trip to Waterman’s at the oceanfront , so I topped this off with my puffer coat!!!!


This was my quickest photo shoot to date with winds whipping at 25 miles per hour…

I wore the lace fedora the entire day,  inside and out, which made it easy for my husband to spot me in the crowd of wine tasters!   We are both tolerate wine and love the tasting process, but both agreed that none that we tried would have sparked us to buy a bottle…. I can honeslty say that I know that more expensive wines appeal more to me ,but that was not present of course for the masses at this event at our convention center.   It was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon and early evening on a cold January day!!! It was a great fun way to hang out with new people when I think 3 of us are more introverted (my husband is not at all!)  


For you my regular readers, this is my signarture sassy pose ,but not today!  This was an “I”m freezing, but have to do it”  pose….

I tried the 3 layer look for the first time last week or so Here  and liked it so much I was inspired to do this again today..I know those who live in colder temps probably think this is a no brainer and  have been doing so for years… but alas I am expereincing colder temperatures that I can ever recall …. even if we get cold days it doesn’t stick around… Remmeber we had highs in the mid 60’s then got 5 inches of snow in the same day!  I like that alll threee levels are seen and not hidden secrets in this formula and will definitely continue this in my rotation, 


I am so grateful for a fun lunch with friends that began as a trio and turned into both my husband and a friend’s mother joining us- the more the merrier! 

I am so grateful for my dearest freind and sharing her joy as her live moves in a positive direction after years of  stress.

I am so grateful for this friend who reminds me to be grateful!

I am grateful that my husband is working for such great people who are so excited to have him on board!  

I am grateful for weekends and time together as  husband and wife and as a family! 

I am grateful that my husbands schedule allows for more weekend time with us!!!

The lace hat is the icing on the cake! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

Brrrrr! Looks cold, but very stylish! Love the hat!

Layers are the way to go where I live…we so often start out freezing and end up melting in one day! Love your hat!

Super cute hat! It totally fits your fun and sassy personality. It sounds like a great weekend!

Oh, brrrr…you still look sassy, even if you’re freezing! Aren’t hats the greatest for adding style, and helping to keep us warm!

My fave is that leopard card and I love how you layered it over the blue tee.

Fantastic layering and love a touch of animal print there!

Tracey, this layering is look is fantastic. You did such a great job with the color combination, keeping it subtle yet playful with the leopard print.

Brrr, I’m cold just thinking about this! I love the colors of your layers and your sassy hat!

That hat is gorgeous! And I would be wearing gloves and a super heavy winter coat if I wanted to pose outdoors right now!! It’s way too chilly here in Michigan for me!

Yes,Michigan would require indoor posing! Your temps get insanely cold or so my friend keeps posting on facebook.

Looking pretty cute, there! Love the splash of blue with the gray, finished with the print. Masterful styling!

Love that animal print card! Adorable look!
