Daytime Sparkle

Posted on: November 17, 2014

Lucky me that I took these photos Friday…

as I got sidelined and didn’t get any weekend outfits….


We had such a bright sunny day, but this time of year we get others that are just down right gloomy and cloudy…

I really feel my mood changing when sunlight isn’t pouring in my house windows and greatly appreciate days like this one!


Daily when we move from my tree photo to the city driveway next door for the remaining photos, my son snaps this overhead picture of the leaves changing colors….So today I thought I’d indulge him and post one…

It’s the least I can do for my dedicated photographer…


I love wearing sequins in the daytime, as my generation certainly remembers a time when they were reserved for more formal  evening wear.   This top is from a company at ShopHQ called Glitterscape and while my navy top is sold out, it’s available in a teal color for just $12.97.   This tee is lightweight, making it perfect for layering… I layered my chambray shirt underneath for added warmth…

While at the ShopHQ website you could check for other top options in this brand including short sleeved ones.  

My Navy Moto is from last year F21, but here is this years collection….


I love rocking a fedora to keep my head warm of cooler days and will be using a lot of hats in the coming months, as I’ve collected a few in the past couple years.  I’ve always loved hats, but blogging definitely opened me up to getting a bigger variety, something that delights me… It’s such a small expenditure for a great addition that lets my fun character come out.. I still can’t believe my daughter had this lace fedora and never wore it so she gave it to me…

Dear Readers, I am so happy cooler temps have arrived and that boot weather is upon us… Of course I’ll probably be regretting saying that later in full winter, but for now I embrace it!  

I mentioned earlier that the lack of sunlight changes my mood, so wanted to share that I have a Verilux Sunlight Lamp that I use during winter months and indeed it does help… 

Mine is like this one at Bed Bath and Beyond, I know there are more expensive therapy lights ,but since my symptoms are more on the mild range, this does the trick….


I was sad that I was sidelined with menstrual issues that made me not able to spend Sunday with my son at VCU in Richmond for his birthday celebration (his b’day is Monday and he is 19!), but there is always a reverse to every situation and I really am grateful for an entire day all alone…. it’s so rare these days with homeschooling….

I am grateful that I can see the end near and am looking forward to full  menopause… and while I am at it,I am grateful that I’ve had easy cycles with very mild symptoms for my life….

I am grateful to my son for being so gracious about my not making it to see him…

I am grateful that the 3 guys got to spend a day together and that my husband brought a cake and has his 7 suite mates join in singing to him..

I am grateful for sappy Hallmark movies…

I am grateful for the sound of my content dog snoring deeply.
