Wrapped in Luxury

Hello friends, if you read Monday’s post with the review of the 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid then you will understand why I entitled today’s OOTD post “Wrapped in Luxury”.

Driving the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited was definitely a luxurious experience, one that I do hope to duplicate in the near future.  A few hours before the driver from DriveShop was scheduled to pick up the Hyundai Sonata, I starting thinking about how I would spend the last few hours wrapped in luxury both inside and outside of the vehicle.

This faux fur from Chadwick’s has been hanging in my closet for several years now and it very rarely makes an appearance because it never really gets cold enough to wear it.  However, I have a funny feeling that is going to change very soon.

Although we have been blessed with a very mild winter, not a snow flake in sight, I know that it is just going to be a matter of time before we get slammed with something close to, but may not exactly be another Polar Vortex so I am getting prepared now.

I have begun sorting through my thrifted sweaters and I found this one as well as few other turtlenecks; pulled out my booties and suede boots, then checked the hall closet for my hats, gloves and scarves, now I think I’m ready – BRING IT ON!

WIWW OOTD ~ Mixing Prints

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.  

I have gotten away from the OOTD posts because of the weather, hubby is my photographer and he and cold just don’t mix!  However, today, the weather is warmer and the sun is brighter so I took advantage of it to get a few shots of my outfit of the day #workwear.

This is a short work week for me so on Sunday I didn’t prepare my outfits for the entire week as I normally do.  This outfit was pulled together last minute before heading to bed and the mixing of polka dots and animal print seems to work, what do you think?

Fashion after Fifty

Taking full advantage of not only the bright sunshine but also the lack of snow, I chose to wear a pair of my favorite pumps from DSW, along with a pair of light color hose. The pencil skirt and polka dot top are both thrifted from Goodwill and the cardigan …. can’t remember where purchased #seniormoment

Monday was much colder so I wore my OTK Suede boots and if you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen these, which are my all time favorite suede boots.
