Red & Leopard

Posted on: March 13, 2015

This new schedule of getting up early for my walks is starting to wear on me.

I know it’s just an adjustment period as I get use to new hours.  

I am hoping that by next week I can actually sleep until my alarm instead of waking up an hour earlier…

My Mood Dressing Tendency and wanting to spice things up produced today’s outfit choice


It was a very Windy Day, so much so I had to change which side of the tree I stood on..

I wanted to feel spunky today, so hence the skirted legging , leopard and red..

Heeled boots would have felt more sassy, but let’s face it, 

going to jump at Cloud 9 at age 49 is bound to have repercussions…

I don’t feel my age, but there are times…


Just for fun this was our first photo attempt and that’s with part of my hair pulled into a barrette…

I’ve had this silk leopard blouse forever and love it…It was actually a gift from my sister-in-law. 

I typically have worn more animal print in previous winters than I did this season, but not to worry I have leopard pointed toe flats new for Spring that I plan to wear a lot…


The outfit did it’s job today and did give me the feeling I was hoping for…

I have to say I am loving the skirted legging trend and can’t wait to show my second pair 

that has a patterned skirt… They are perfect for Spring!  

Mine are by Legacy via QVC and Here is their current offerings 

Dear Readers, I had another reality smack in the face today when I went to add my beloved Rachel Zoe red trench to this outfit for my walk to the store when it was pulled tight across my hip , so I wore it unbuttoned at the bottom.. 

This just motivates me more as I bought that trench in 3 colors for and plan to have them for a long time. No way I am not losing this extra now, 15lbs…


I am grateful that I managed my morning walk before the soreness set in.

I am grateful for a lazy day with my boys who both were worn out and sore from Cloud 9..It was a PJ day for them!

I am grateful for the fun of watching college basketball with my son this week as his team is in the A10 tournament. I should add I am grateful to learn more about a new sport that I don’t know much about.Another game tomorrow for a total of 3 this week.  

I am grateful for the extra motivation of my too tight trench today, it means I will stay the course over the weekend. 

I am grateful for a chance to make my sister-in-law smile when I call her and tell her I still have and love this blouse. 

I am grateful that Friday is a planned day off from morning walks and look forward to a day of rest.

Great combo!! The leopard & red are spot on for your complexion! Such a young yet appropriate look!!! Jodie

Thank you… skirted leggings by nature are more young, but perfect way to get away with the comfort of leggings for Moms on the Go…
