OOTD – Two Tone Trends

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

The weather so far this Spring has been two tone – warm one day, cold the next … sunny one day, raining the next…warm during the day and freezing at night.  This afternoon it’s expected to be warm which is definitely a relief because the past few nights have been extremely chilly so much so that we had to turn the heat back on.  I am not going to complain too much as there are states that are still dealing with snow and flooding which is far worse than anything we are experiencing.

In keeping with the two tone theme, today’s outfit is a combination of two trends:

Color Blocking and Black & White.

OOTD – April a Month of Rebirth & Death

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

April is a month of renewal and rebirth and for many years one of excitement and joy – a cousin’s birthday on the 1st; my grandmother’s birthday on the 2nd; my sister’s birthday on the 10th; another cousin’s birthday on the 12th; an uncle’s birthday on the 15th; an aunt’s birthday on the 19th and finally my ‘best friend since 3rd grade’s’ birthday on the 25th.

Now April is a month of death – my grandmother’s death; my sister’s death; and my uncle’s death makes this a sad month for me.  I look at the blooms on the Daffodils and Tulips with sadness in my eyes…my daily routines are muted…there’s no real joy in my heart…dark colors comfort me…my heart aches and my smiles seem forced…but life goes on and “This Too Shall Pass”.

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!

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!

OOTD 3 13 13 011

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 – Warm Up Wednesday

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today it’s warm yet foggy due to the increase in temps making the morning commute a little slow. There were several fender benders on 95N, one of which was almost mine, however, my Guardian Angel shielded me from it making it a near miss.

You may remember when I purchased this outfit from Boscov’s (here), but it’s the first time that I’ve worn it.  This evening is my son’s Open House, and depending on traffic I may not have time to change clothes.   I wanted to wear something that would be comfortable enough to take me from work to walking the halls of a High School.

What do you think of this “from the office to the halls of high school” attire?

OOTD – Belt It Yay or Nay ?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Now that the holidays are over and everyone is back to school and work we are now looking forward to the first major snow storm of the year.  If I had it my way it wouldn’t hit until late March and then a quick thaw straight to Spring!  I hope your Hump Day is progressing nicely and that you are not trying to cram 5 days of work into 3, but if you are, stop…take a deep breath and say,  “the weekend is almost here!”

Belt or not?

I didn’t wear it to work because I felt it would take away from the necklace, what do you think?
