More Dresses and Skirts for Winter

Posted on: March 3, 2015

I began last week with the intention of doing a week of dresses and skirts

to boost my mood for these winter blues and stopped short for bowling day and  once our snow arrived..

To make up for that, I have two outfits…

I wore this Ann Taylor thrifted skirt over the weekend.

The key to success here is the fleece lined tights in navy.

The sequined sweatshirt by is rather thin, so I added another navy t-shirt underneath.

I finished off with a navy faux leather jacket by F21 and my boots from Ireland.

Not the best lighting in this photo,

but the best part of this outfit for me is the swingy skirt.

Movement in skirts are wonderful for boosting my mood and increasing my sassy side.

Now for what I wore Monday…

A thrifted dress and Old Navy Sweater…

I really do like thrifting dresses and skirts because the lower cost allows me to have more in this category.

I loved getting a chance to rock my burgundy knee high heeled boots.. 

I am glad my sciatica isn’t flared up which allowed me to sport heels.  

I like the ease of layering a sweater over a skirt rather than layering with a jacket or cardigan. 

Have you tried that with success yet? 

Dear Readers, since Tuesday is a make up Parent’s Night out , due to our snowfall,

I will be putting together another dress look for tomorrow.  

I wanted to wear a maxi styled for winter , but the wet snow and rain we’ve had changed that desire. 

Gratitude

I am grateful that my daughter is home and that she came with dinner requests. 

I am grateful that we are making progress on sewing her costume for the Anime Convention in Boston.  

I am grateful that  we are having so much fun making the costume and the memories we are building, not to mention the love my daughter feels in our support of her Anime interests…

I am grateful that my son will be coming home Friday, from VCU and will have a few days that overlap his sister’s break.

 I am grateful for the time alone with just my daughter and youngest, this is a first and she is spending so much time teaching him things and being a big sister…

You certainly DID rock those burgundy boots! Very pretty with the white sweater and skirt.

Thank you! I have a passion for boots and was delighted to add burgundy to my collection…

Loving your skirt outfits. Really cute!
