I’ve Got the Blues….

Posted on: February 18, 2015

That blog title reference my Navy blue Hiking boots and Outfit

Not my frame of mind…

It’s a Wonderful Rare Snow Day!

I loved getting a chance to wear my thrifted navy hiking boots that I dreamed of 

and miraculously found in brand new condition at Salvation Army…

They aren’t just good for a trip to Ireland…

They Inspired me to go with a mostly blue outfit for the day...

The dark outfit against the snow is exactly what I was aiming for!  

A pair of skinny jeans, black cashmere sweater and navy cape are all for warmth

and what’s more fun than a cape?

My hat is down a little more than I’d prefer…

I liked adding the navy and white scarf I found at F21 last year and the white necklace 

as a nod to the snow background…

I am very happy I scored the fun cape on clearance off season for just $9.99.

 Dear Readers, It’s still late afternoon as I type this, but I know that the finish to my snow day is going to be a nice cup of hot chocolate with a nice shot of Ameretto… I haven’t done that at all this winter, which is unusual.. I guess my eating hasn’t been the best, so I didn’t further indulge as a way to maintain my weight.. I think I have that backwards and should do better during the day and indulge in an evening cup of relaxation ….A new plan for the rest of the month???

What’s your ultimate winter indulgence???

Gratitude

I am grateful for the fun of a snow day and a day of from homeschooling where I got to be the Fun Mom, instead of the pain in his neck teacher!  

I am grateful for the sharing and connection all around with everyone’s excitement over the snow. 

I am grateful that my husband didn’t have to work today, so he could hang out with our son and have some good bonding time, cause this mom isn’t much for playing in the snow….
