Layered Up…

Posted on: February 11, 2015

I’ve had this outfit in my head for quite awhile…

I really was hoping to wait until I could wear knee high heeled black boots…

Alas, protecting myself from reoccurring sciatic pain, and impatience to wear this took over…


This thrifted black & white poncho is probably my favorite poncho! 

This outfit is all about layering a short sleeve striped  t-shirt dress by Calvin Klein 

Next came the black pullover sweater and the tights….

and last of all the fabulous poncho…


This really was the fastest photo shoot ever…

In fact my dear young photographer wasn’t at all happy about the cold whipping winds…

My normal third side pose pictures all came out blurry as did the one above… 


So for my third picture…. 

I decided to show how I wore this last January.

This outfit is one of my all time favorites and

by the way one of the most popular ones re-pinned on Pinterest. 

Too funny that I’m wearing the lace fedora in both outfits…

Dear Readers,  I woke up this morning and felt that dreaded tickle in my throat from sinuses that happens when we get these big temperature swings, and instantly felt sorry for myself…. That did not last long, because my next thought was,
“How Dare you!  Your daughter is buried in snow in Boston….”   

I love that my goal to live a life focused on happiness has become so ingrained that it’s now a reflex and happens even in the first semi-conscious waking moments… 

Want to add a more focused approach to happiness, don’t forget to check out my Happiness Tools Page which is always at the top of my blog… 

Here’s another list as well..


I am grateful that I finally got this outfit out of my head…

I am grateful that my son so willingly takes my photos , even in a day like today with light rain and bone-chilling winds.

I am grateful that I made Chili for dinner last night, so leftovers for tonight…

I am grateful my brother stopped by to pick up a carry-on for a cruise he won from work and the chance to give him a hug. 

I am grateful that I chose not to go out to lunch with a friend this week and instead watched my son at his bowling lesson. 

I am grateful for my blog and this forum to share my gratitude, tools for happiness and my artistic expression of styling outfits. 

I am grateful to my mother for her un-wavering  faith and helping to foster my spirituality.
