Red- Orange Love is Going Strong…

Posted on: January 7, 2015

I have had a wonderful love affair with my red-orange jeans 

and was wondering how much longer I would be able to keep this going 

without being completely off trend…

In today’s pairing I chose to feature my new sweater from Kohl’s that 

I used a gift card that my oldest gave me to purchase…

I am also featuring the cloche hat that style guru Angie Cox from You Look Fab, 

recommended I try out to add to my hat collection.  

Gucci Pre-Fall 2015 - Collection - Gallery - Style.com

This is a pin from Angie Cox’s board from Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection…

I know this color is a true orange, but that doesn’t deter me at all..

This excited me that my love affair will continue strong through next winter …

Truth be told I would have kept going with my jeans through next season anyway…

I even celebrated by heading for a walk to the store to get orange lipstick..

Last time I wore this hat, my kids teased me about being like Mary Poppins…

I prefer to think of myself as more like Mary from Downton Abbey…

Note to self:  after using flour to make calzones, check your outfit before photographing…

Wearing my Diane Gilman Red-orange Jeans was a wake up call for me today…

I’ve gained weight and they are tight on me… I really need to get my eating back on schedule..

It seems like I’ve been saying that since returning from Ireland, but not really following through..

After my kids head back to college on Sunday, I am going

to go grocery shopping to stock up on things to keep me on track..

I will go into more detail next week of exactly what my eating healthier looks like…

Gratitude

I am grateful that the Calzones turned out well and that my children all greatly appreciated my efforts.

I am grateful that I made plenty and will not have to cook dinner tomorrow..gotta love left over nights..

I am grateful that tonight is trash and recycling night, as with Christmas and kids home, both recycling cans and trash were Full…I am also grateful to my two youngest for taking on the duty of stuffing the last bits from the house today into those cans.

I am grateful for these last days with my children and the fun we have even making a late night Walmart run…

I am grateful that as I type this my three children all sitting behind me on the couches watching Divergent, it’s rare to find movies that they all like and are appropriate for the youngest…
