Snowed in and Thinking of Spring…

Posted on: January 29, 2014

I had every intention of photographing my new hair cut ,but alas nature had other plans and I am not talking about the foot or so of snow we got dumped on us…

Just wonderful female issues…. that left me in my pj’s all day! But hey, I at least got to relax in my new reclining sofa…I told my husband that no one mentioned that going into menopause was very much like having a teenager about ready to leave for college… That it has to act up, so you will want it to go away….

So for today’s post, I  thought I would talk Spring…. A lot of boxy and oversized tops are making their way in and as a petite, oversized makes me cringe…. But I’ve always been the woman who looked for solutions.. So, this petite, boho loving girl is planning to embrace Kimonos!  

Lightweight, flowy, prints, what ‘s not to love???  

While this is certainly not a new trend and was out there last year, it will still be going strong again….

Ornate Chiffon Kimono | LOVE21 - 2000126369

I ordered this one from F21

I immediately see this with a white dress, white jeans or dark wash skinnys.  

Free Spirit Open-Front Kimono | FOREVER21 - 2000126408

I ordered this one as well, I like the shorter length and less volume of this one and while lightweight, it isn’t a sheer like the first one.

And here’s the back, with a traditional nod to the culture… 

I see pulling the teal and reds out of the print to pair with this…

Just for fun , here’s the link to all  the Kimonos Forever 21 has right now…..

Dear Readers, I love the 3rd completer pieces even in summer to throw over a simple tank top, especially when going into any place that is airconditioned and think this will be a great addtion for that purpose.

 Funny to imagine how I will style things for warmer weather , while we have so much snow  from last night… it’s going to be a long few days of getting out of this one with the limited resources in our area. I know that they were able to get extra trucks from across the state to prepare for this , but wiht half as much snow last week, it took 48 hours to get to the major roads only…. Lucky for us we live right off  a major road and on a street that is the main entry and exit to our neighborhood, so anyone who does venture out travels down our street… My Boston born husband is home for the day, but doubt he will stay home all day… he will get stir crazy and just have to venture out!!!

Will get Photos of my Haricut and color soon… they will be indoor photos!!!!!


I am grateful that everyone in my family has snow gear, this year!

I am grateful for our new couches and the fun my two sons, daughter and I had yesterday, all reclining with blanckets on watching tv… and my 18 year old suddenly saying… “aaah, this is where obesity begins!”  from my super skinny kid!!!

I am grateful that my husband is feeling so relaxed as he no longer has a full commission job with the constant ebb and flow of money and the confidence and security of a more consistent pay….(this reeally is a huge weight of the shoulders of the sole provider of our family!!!!!!) 

I am grateful for Snow Days and a chance to just laugh and have family time !

I am grateful that we laid  down rock salt and have a snow shovel on the front porch, ready to dig out…. 

I am grateful that before my female issue kicked in yesterday, that I was able to get in a full Fluidity workout and it felt wonderful!!!!
