Skirting It…

Posted on: February 12, 2016

Today’s Challenge Was to Wear a 

Dress or Skirt…

I thrifted this one ages ago and hadn’t worn it yet.

As a woman who fully embraces her femininity ,

I could wear dresses and skirts everyday and be perfectly, delightfully spunky!  

Of course that would be quite silly for my homeschooling Mom life and impractical.  

With only 3 years left with my youngest child, I wonder what’s around the corner 

and if I will find something to do that allows me to wear more dresses and skirts.  

That’s the fantasy anyway!

I was attracted to this skirt because I loved the muted greys and blues and the fact that

it is a sheer overlay that just floats when I walk. 

I want to try it with my grey leather and perhaps a denim jacket.  

My striped shirt is thrifted as well, and didn’t look good tucked or untucked it looked frumpy, 

so I knotted it off the to side and even DH saw the difference!

It was so fun to sport my faux suede grey boots, I haven’t worn very many heeled boots

this season and have missed them.   

I added a hat and gloves because we are at freezing temperatures and are going lower over the weekend. 

For some of you that’s not a big deal, but for this beach woman it is!  

My daughter joked me on the phone that she was bringing Boston weather with her!  

Self Care

I lost two pounds so far this week and hope to lose at least one more…

Going to be very careful for Valentine’s Day! 

Gratitude

I am grateful for a conversation with my daughter who had her PHD interview that was group style and came out of it pretty proud of her answers.  She doesn’t know if they made her stand out, but she felt like the others were very prententious and she was more herself and down to earth.  Her take away was that it was a learning experience regardless of the outcome.  Makes me proud that something I taught her rubbed off!  

I am grateful that my husband didn’t go to work until 3 today , so had some time to just hang out with my homeschooler and I , he’s been unusually busy this week , so it was a good break. 

I am grateful that after waking up only 4 hours after falling asleep, that I fell back asleep for another two hours!  

I am grateful that my sinus headache responded to medication and left me mobile and active for this day of getting ready for my daughter to come home…..

So naturally that leads to….I am grateful that tonight my daughter will fly home for the weekend and I can hug her tight, talking on the phone, facetiming on her brother’s Iphone is just not the same!  

I am grateful that my daughter loves coming home and misses us too!

It’s funny how the skirt almost looks so different in the two different lightings! The gold pops out and looks so great with the jacket against the tree!! Happy Weekend Tracey!!!
