Hello Friends and Welcome to the Weekend!
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and regardless of where you went, what you ate or what gift you received, you were able to spend quality time with people you love because that’s all that truly matters.
Last Saturday hubby and I spent most of the day with our son at Appoquinimink High School’s Wrestling Team’s Senior Day – now that’s a mouthful! Some of you may know that my son started wrestling after the Thanksgiving break and he finished the season with a 5-5 record due to a knee injury. Saturday was his last match, which he lost but all in all he enjoyed the experience and bonding with his teammates and the coaches.
Prior to the match, each soon-to-graduate Senior escorted their parents/guardians onto the gym floor and presented their mother with a rose.
Malik enjoyed wrestling this season and regretted that he didn’t join the team during his earlier years of High School.
Wrestling at 170 lbs, this was his last match and you can see the disappointment on his face after the disappointing loss.
But like the good athlete he is, it only lasted a few minutes and after talking to his dad, he was back enjoying the rest of the matches with his teammates.
It was a great day and watching the team knowing that it’s the end of the season was more bittersweet for me than for him.
Mom being silly unbeknownst to hubby or son!
I ended the afternoon getting a new camera bag from Cameras Etc. in Newark.
Did you share love and laughter last weekend?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
I was recently featured on the website “Fabulous After 40”, and chosen as “Glam Gal of the Week”, (click the link to read in case you missed it.)
I was also selected along with two other ladies who we weren’t afraid to wear the color red after the age of 40. The red sheath dress that I was wearing was received from eShakti as a product review. Sheath dresses are my favorite styles and even with the the change in weather they will remain forefront in my closet.
In today’s outfit I am wearing a color blocked sleeveless sheath dress from Avon. I gave the outfit an edgier look with the pleather jacket thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill), studded booties and stud and spike accessories.
Remember when I purchased this Spike Necklace/Earring Set on my birthday at Rugged Wearhouse for a $1.00 on clearance?
Stud & Buckle Booties – Ross
House of Dereon Bag – Burlington Coat Factory
Last Friday I also wore a color block sleeveless sheath dress purchased from Ross with a pair of suede over-the-knee boots and long knit sweater.
These pictures were taken at at Camera’s Etc in Newark (pardon the drunken eyes)
I believe these rhinestone embellished boots were also purchased a few seasons ago from Ross.
As you can see, I have no intentions of putting away my sleeveless sheath dresses anytime soon.
How about you, what are your wardrobe items that you’ll wear in any season?
I was inspired by Transatlantic Blonde in wearing footless tights with a dress, and they were purchased at Target.
Today I am linking up with What I Wore Wednesday with The Pleated Poppy, come on over and meet some new bloggers.
