” That Looks Irelandly”

Posted on: November 9, 2015

Yes, I am well aware that “Irelandly”  is not a real word, 

However, it was the cute repsonse my son had

when I came out in this outfit , yesterday.  

With my kids all growing up and my youngest being 15, the days of such fun

ways of expressing themselves have gone away,mostly….

So when they do arise, this mother delights in it and is grateful!  


With temperatures in the 50’s yesterday, 
I practically ran to my room to put this outfit together. 

It’s been in my head since I purchased this sweater in anticipation of Fall. 


I have a lot of sweaters, but none that make quite a statement as this baby does.  

I love everything about it, the shawl color, the gold buttons on the sleeves, the 3 button closure, 

the length, the waistband knitted design in the back. 

It’s an Antthony, “Highlander Sweater Coat via Hsn,

and comes in 8 colors and sizes xs – 3x .

I loved this so much that I bought my daughter a different color for Christmas.  

Shhh, don’t tell her, it’s safe for me to post , as she is way too busy in graduate school to

bother to read her mother’s little blog…lol!  


My blouse with the gold detail was actually part of a grab bag of items from

I must say that grab bag came with two very ugly pairs of the softest leggings ever, that are now pj bottoms.  Too be expected when ones dares to gamble on a grab bag, lol. 

I must say that these fun fringe booties by Not Rated via Amazon were a great addition to my boot collection, 

and even DH makes a comment about them every time I’ve worn them.  He also said that I need to repeat this look for a date night , soon…. you don’t have to twist my arm baby!  

 Dear Readers My ponte knit leatherette detail leggings are Old Navy from last year.  

While on the topic of leggings, if you have not yet ditched those cheaper thin versions, 

I highly recommend you invest in some ponte knit ones, they are so much thicker, warmer and 

to a great job of sucking everything in… Yes they do cost more , but in my opinion are worth it! 

Old Navy has two options Here and my newest favorite line on Evine, Kate & Mallory has 

a leatherette side panel option, HERE  and either slim leg or bootcut versions HERE

Please note, I make no compensation for my blogging, so give these recommendations based solely because I adore something!  


I am grateful for the one blustery cold day that appeared , yesterday that allowed me to debut my sweater, gotta say this fashionista is so ready for Fall and getting out my leathers and jackets… 

I am grateful for a fun Sunday of watching Football, our teams were both televised and on at the same time, which made for a fun run to the other room or shouting at each other our games progress.  It was fun when his game finished and he came to watch the nail biting end to my Steelers win!  

I am grateful that despite being away at college that my Nicholas was keeping up with our games and called and was chatting with us about them. I loved giving me phone to DH and hearing the two of them having a long discussion and watching his game together.  I love that my kids don’t just call Mom, but talk to their father too!  

I am grateful that I found a dresser on a local Facebook online garage sale. I really needed an option for my sweaters and also wanted someting to off set the dresser my husband has on  his side of the bed for symmetry.  

I am grateful for my husband for taking me to get the dresser after our games were over and for his fun dash to Home Depot just 8 minutes before they closed to obtain shelf pegs that it needed, so that I was able to put all my sweaters away last night….. Okay Fall/Winter I am really ready now!  

Happy Monday Dear Readers, Thanks for Stopping By!

 Comments are much appreciated and make my day!
