For the Love of Wool…

Posted on: January 22, 2016

I showed a thrifted wool sweater in my last post. 

Living where it hovers above freezing with occassional times of just below that,

doesn’t call for owning much wool clothing.

For days like this one, my Old Navy Wool Cocoon Coat found HERE was perfect! 

It really is a chic piece, very surprisng from Old Navy. 

I’ve worn it once before with all black underneath, this time the added striped turtleneck works just as well. 

I think I could just sub out for my tan Ann Taylor jeans for another option.

Playing off the energy level of my delighted teen homeschooler for a snow day, 

I matched his level of joy and threw my hands in the air and did a spin around….

He took pictures of my entire antics, lol!

I traded out my fringe boots for my thrifted Naotak boots and my Old Navy jacket, for my

Eddie Bauer for a quick walk to the store to extend our outdoor adventure, which my son appreciated. 

We didn’t really get any accumulation, so that was about the extent of our fun, except for the snowball he made, photograhed and texted to his brother…

Here is my third wool piece, my Aran Poncho bought on last years Ireland trip. 

I paired it with a Old Navy pants and loved how the this outfit pulled together with 

pattern mixing from the scarf.

I love having these colder temperatures and getting to bring out some beloved winter pieces. 

I will always love this poncho and the memories of my trip to Ireland !

My daughter ventured to the Primark store in Boston today , which we went to while in Ireland 

and I was actually jealous when she told me that all the upper management was in from Ireland going 

through the store making recommendations for improvements.  

She loved hearing their irish accents and that was what caused my jealously, lol   

Dear Readers, Do you have any coveted pieces you love to wear during the winter season? 

If so please share, I adore reading your comments!  

Self Care

Today in self care, I brought out the exercize trampoline that had been put away for the holidays

and had fun jumping on it followed by strength training.  

Gratitude

I am grateful for the fun and delight my son had today with our little bit of snow. 

I am grateful for the fun group texting we have going among my husband, myself and all our children. 

I am grateful for the daily phone calls I’ve had this week with my daughter as she rides the bus home from her internship. 

I am grateful for how snow always conjures up memories of my dear mother who would always sit at her desk on snow days when I was a child and write letters to family and friends ,as she was homesick for Pittsburgh.
