OOTD – Weepy Wednesday

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It took me a while to get myself together after this morning’s encounter with my neighbor, but I’m glad that it happened because last night I dreamt about my aunt who passed away on Friday. However, the reason for being extremely late this morning was the multiple outfit changes, not the Polka Dot dress, that was a given but what to wear with it. I tried 2 different shirts over it,…2 different shirts underneath it…3 different color blazers before finally settling on this Aqua Cardigan.   I buttoned it and put on a pair of Mossimo flats then looked into the mirror, I immediately thought about FLOTUS Obama meeting The Queen of England.

Remember the flack she got for having the audacity to wear a sweater to meet The Queen for the first time – puh-leeze people – get a life! No matter your political affiliation, that was just stupid with a capital “S”, such an embarrassment for our country…just one of many…okay stepping down from the Soap Box now.

Polka Dots and Cardigan

I am so glad that the weather is finally warming up, the birds were chirping in all their glory..aah the sounds of Spring. 

Birds chirping - the sounds of Spring

All the snow is gone!

Today’s outfit seemed appropriate as a transition from Winter to Spring what do you think?

OOTD – (It’s still) Winter Wednesday

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

3.13.13 and it’s still Winter but Spring is right around the corner and I’m frantically trying to wear as many of my winter clothes before it’s officially over!

You may remember when I wore this skirt with brown booties in November (here), but today I chose to wear it with beige pumps to lighten it up a bit.

I would also like to thank my Bloggy friends who co-signed on Tuesday’s Testimony, when we are of one accord blessings pour down like rain!

Don’t ever be afraid to testify  –  you never know, it might help somebody!

I love this brush suede skirt because it’s style is fashionable for a woman of my age and it fits to a “T” with a perfect length.  So glad someone donated it to the GW Boutique (Goodwill). I am going to say the same for these pumps which are also classic in style and just the right heel height because I might cut back on higher heels…NOT!

OOTD – Inspired By Kela’s Kloset

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Today’s outfit was inspired by an Instagram picture from Kela’s Kloset, a fashion blogger whom I admire and follow because of her great sense of style.  She like myself has vowed to shop our closet for the month of March, me because gas is too damn high.  I’m always checking the blogs for ideas and to get inspiration for refashioning items that I already own and this is today’s.

You know how much I love my sleeveless shift dresses, well instead of wearing a cardigan or blazer over it, I’m wearing a print top underneath.

Snow is in the forecast this afternoon starting at 4:00 pm,  just in time for my evening commute so I chose to wear an old pair of boots and to accessorize with silver jewelry

OOTD – I Love OLIVES

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

Yeah yeah yeah, we are on the down stroke to the weekend!  I really have to stop rushing my life away, every day is a new day to be cherished and savored, but ding dang dong it – I LOVE THE WEEKENDS!!!

I also love OLIVES, I love the color OLIVE and I love the vegetable… or is it a fruit…OLIVES …hey…in what food group is an OLIVE?

I do know that olives are a staple in the Mediterranean diet which has been scientifically confirmed that it reduces the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular diseases by 30 percent and is great for people trying to lose weight.  I only cook with light Virgin Olive Oil, have used it as a hair care product and if I drank Martinis I would do it only for the OLIVES!

OOTD – Crazy Commuters

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, we’re on the down stroke to the weekend!

Yesterday after work I stopped for gas, paid $3.67/gallon, getting just enough to get home or to a cheaper station. This morning it was $3.69! It’s times like these that I miss living in New York and taking public transportation. Delaware has DART Bus service but I would rather drive than risk being hit over the head with a gun for a bite of sandwich – don’t believe me…it happened on Monday, read the article here

Do you ever drive around burning gas looking for cheaper gas – crazy right!  If I did commute to work on public transportation this Merona tote would be perfect to carry.  It’s not as though I have a lot but if I did, it’s very roomy.  It could also be used an an overnight bag, what do you think?

Animal Print booties were purchased last year on clearance at Deb Shop and the pantsuit is from the back of the closet – the shoulder pads dates it.  Worthington scoop neck top was $4 from JC Penney and Merona tote was part of my shoe haul from Target.

OOTD – Pre V-Day Wednesday

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It’s the day before Valentine’s Day, do you have anything special planned…will Cupid be shooting any arrows your way?  I’ve never been big on V-Day and prefer to get my candy the day after when it’s half price – lol  Hubby and I may go out to dinner Friday night and I bought my sons a card and some candy from Dollar Tree, otherwise nothing special.  I guess when you are single and dating, Valentine’s Day is more of a Holiday, but I tell my men everyday that I love them and the 14th of February will be no different.

Image

 I am still wearing red in honor of “America Goes Red for Women” month and will wear a wee bit more tomorrow.

Image

We are expecting snow but not until this evening so I decided to wear my grey, suede booties to pick up the color in the shirt.

Image

These Bamboo faux fur trimmed booties were purchased a few years ago from Burlington Coat Factory and despite their “ugliness”, they are quite comfortable.

OOTD – Black & White Tight

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It’s mid-week, the temps are rising and the sun will be shining – all is good in the neighborhood! Dark and dreary days really take a toll on the mind and body, which is not good when trying to lose weight. I need to step up my Zumba workouts and cut back on the carbs so that my clothes fit better…this skirt is tight!

Does the weather or seasons affect your weight?

Both the skirt and top were thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill).  The top was made in Hong Kong and has a very unique design with the metal rectangles sewn onto the front.
