February Style Challenge

Posted on: February 4, 2014

 I Want to Pass on an idea I found from Heather at Style Journey, for anyone who is feeling that winter rut right now in feeling inspired to put together looks… Heather found this idea via More Modern Modesty so follow along as they demonstrate their versions…

I will be following ones that appeal to me , but not all do.. 

Now onto today’s look…


Like my windswept look, the winds were crazy and the temps went from 60F yesterday to 40F but with the whipping winds the weather reports it feels like 30F.  I have to agree with the 30F  feel.  It was a very fast photo shoot with my son cringing  and rushing me…


These pants were a gift from my husband and are Gloria Vanderbilt’s in a color they call Ocean Green. I have several other ways in my head to style these and hope to feel inspired enough to do a few looks all at once sometime soon…


I have paisley corduroy skinnys in this shade of green and wore this dolman sweater with it before… I added the scarf in place of a necklace and like this thinner more spring weight scarf for that kind of look.  It will also work with a tshirt for Spring and Summer…

Dear Readers, it was kind of fun having windblown looks to switch things up , although my 13 year old photographer told me I looked like a crazy lady in a few of the shots that didn’t make the cut.  Are any of you looking as forward to spring as I am???


I am grateful that when I went into my daughter’s old place of employment today, that her manager remembered her with fondness and used one word to describe her, “Smart” (he once played a game using only one word to describe each employee using words like “Spunky” but when coming to her said, “Mature”), a very true assessment…

I am grateful that the rain stopped and allowed at least dry photos…

I am grateful that my dear husband made tacos yesterday for the Superbowl and that I won’t be cooking dinner ’cause there are plenty of leftovers!!!!!!

I am grateful for the fun conversation with all of my kids talking about their opinions on the Superbowl Commercials.

I am grateful that my son likes his third permanent subsitute for his college level English class….his teacher is home with her new baby! 

I am grateful that my husband actually had a few moments to just call and touch base with me today, as most days he is so busy and doesn’t get a break.

Happy to hear you will be playing along with bits and pieces of the challenge! It will definitely help get out of the winter blues rut (I hope)! Been so busy I haven’t had a chance to pop by much. Loving the dolman sleeved sweater on you!

Thanks for posting the challenge as there really are a lot complaining of being in the same rut right now.

What a great idea!

I love your bag, by the way!
