Out of Hibernation

Posted on: February 22, 2015

After our snow and record cold temperatures came in last week,

I went into hiding and stayed indoors keeping the fire going…..

With some of my time I of course played in my closet and put together some looks for this week

Linking up Today with Visible Monday, go check out some other wonderful bloggers! 


To celebrate normal temperatures returning, 

I’ve decided to do a week of skirts and dresses…

It’s to lift my spirit and let my Sassy side come out to play..

That’s exactly what it felt like to wear this outfit and my heeled boots instead of flat riding boots.  


This outfit is actually a tshirt dress layered with an old navy pink sweater, and F21 faux leather moto.  

A tshirt dress really is a very versatile piece and I’ve had this one for four to five years and never tire of it.. 


I am really looking forward to wearing dresses and skirts this week!  

Just for fun, here are a few other ways I’ve styled this dress


With a Navy and black jacket and navy suede boots..


This was an all neutrals look from a Pinterest Inspiration


And another neutral with black and brown…

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I was so happy to get out Saturday, even if it was just to Five Guys and Walmart.. I realized on that outing how much God did the right thing by blessing me with 3 boys as I saw the plowed snow drifts in the parking lot and my first thought was to turn to my 14 year old and say…”You can’t miss the opportunity to climb on those, pick your favorite and go for it!”   He did so and I was fascinated at how fast he climbed… on the way down he slid on his rear, got back in the car for a split second and then said , ” I have to do it again, I need to find a better way down! ” I loved that he wanted to succeed on the descent and was self motivated to do it again… 

I celebrate any progress I see in my children and this was progress as he’s been the kid who would give up and you have to drag to do anything fun… I think I may have enjoyed it more than he did!  

Note:  I would have encourage my daughter to do the same…. Having a playful side is important to us all..


I am so grateful for a warmer day, in the 5o’s and the melting of the snow

I am grateful that my daughter will be home on Friday, and am so looking forward to spending time sewing her costume for the Anime convention and Ball-dance

I am grateful for being blessed with the precious job of motherhood and the fantastic journey it’s been and will continue to be as I finish these last four years homeschooling

I am grateful for peace and tranquility in my heart…

I am grateful for friends and the joy they bring to my life! 

I am grateful for my love of reading books and the ability to get lost for awhile

I agree, always let the sassy side come out to play! Stay warm and safe. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

That moto is fab! Love that first outfit! Cute, sassy, and classy too! All great looks!

Your nude coloured moto jacket is fabulous, I would so wear it. I know what you mean about the slightly warmer weather, now we can show our legs again!

I’m pushing through with my week of dresses and skirts despite out freezing temps to celebrate getting over record lows at 10F…. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Great looks Tracey! I love the moto jacket and how you layered a pretty pink sweater over the dress. I know what you mean about the weather! When is spring getting here! You look lovely
from the link up,
please stop by, jess xx

That dress is so cute and looks so different with all the ways you styled it. I am definitely going to enjoy getting ideas from you on how to style things. And you’ve inspired me to wear a dress tomorrow, despite there being rain the forecast. Why not? It will be a spring rain!
