Pinterest Inspiration….

Posted on: March 12, 2014

What’s a blogger to do when she is under the weather, but really wants to get dressed and take blog photos? 

Well, she turns to Pinterest to peruse her boards of outfits that she would like to copy….

Linking up with Pinned It and Did It

LOLO Moda: Women's dresses 2013

As a woman who lives in the south, we all have an inner cowgirl… Well, maybe not all of us, especially here in Virginia Beach which is a true melting pot area,  as we are surrounded by military bases.  Of course that brings so many transplants from all over… In fact both my parents are from the north, Pennsylvania.  The Navy brought my father here and my mother came here on vacation with girlfriends and fell in love!  I love my mother so much for understanding my spunky personality and my love of boots…  I was truly blessed… I had a pair I loved when at 25 I met and married a Boston northern snob… He didn’t like that side of me too much and I let her go for awhile, never replacing those much loved boots after I wore them out… Something happens to women in their fourties and they really embrace themselves, hence my return to cowboy style boots… And the best part is my dear husband sees how sassy and happy they make me feel and has learned to embrace  them!!!! 


Such fun and an outfit I would love to wear to a fun music festival, but for today, it helped me to feel a little spunky when my sinuses are trying to drain my energy…


I small floral print and a boyfriend navy sweater with black tipping..

IMG_3299At 48, I feel time running out on my chance to wear outfits like this, so going to embrace it for now!  Some may feel this is already to young of a look for me, but I dress to fit my spirit, not the chronological age…

Dear Readers, this was a fun adventure and really did help me feel better today.. A cure for a fashionista, play in you closet and ignore that sinus pressure and headache… Sure beats sitting on the couch and pouting, wishing this sinus stuff would pass by quicker…


I am grateful for Pinterest and the fun it brings to my oufit styling.

I am grateful for the fun memory of my mother indulging my cowgirl.

I am grateful for National Geographic channel and the Brain Games show I had on  DVR that three of my children are now watching together… With kids aged 13 to 22 a rare moment together…

I am grateful for a beautiful sunny day, as sunlight is a mood booster!  

I am grateful for the love and supporting family that I’ve built and the knowledge that my children really like each other!  (a mother’s dream) 

I am so grateful for my 18 year old son ( I am so going to miss him when he goes off to college next year) as he told me today, that when I turn 80 I can wear anything I want again, so not to worry...He then went on to say that he woud even proudly escort me and point out that I was old and allowed to do anything…

Tracey- I’m sorry your sickness seems to be hanging on. Hoping for better days soon for you! Your outfit is adorable…and I must tell you that you don’t at all look 48!! You barely look 38! I would guess early 30’s!!! You dress however you feel you want to dress, because you look so good that you can pull it off. 😀 Feel better soon!

How sweet are you!!! I am blessed with my mother’s young looks and know that is a luxury… I do however try to balance being the mother of adult children… Thanks so much… I am not the only one sick for this length seems like it is happening a lot in my parts…My fever is back today with winds and rain on the horizon and a huge 40 degree drop in temps tonight…

Oh how cute! I love the inspiration photo and your spin on it too. Hope you are feeling better soon 🙂
