Archive for the ‘Autumn Attire’ Category
Although I am not quite ready to start wearing boots full time because it makes me think about snow, I did however, wear a pair last week. I also wore my little black suede booties which I prefer because they are uber cute and comfortable.
This colorful striped dress was thrifted from Goodwill and not only do I love the wonderful colors but also that it is forgiving. It hugs where it’s supposed to and it’s loose where it needs to be!
I chose to wear a multi color bracelet but now that I see this pic, it appears lost!
Pencil skirts and short sleeves are my go-to outfits for work. I do not like to be overheated and I would rather wear short sleeves under a sweater or blazer and you ladies of a particular age know exactly what I mean. #menopause
I normally wear silver tone jewelry with black so with this outfit I have on silver hoop earrings, multi-strand silver tone necklace, silver cuff bracelet and zebra stripped silver ring and watch.
Next week I will be wearing my blue suede booties of which I have two different pairs so stay tuned for those outfits of the day.
How about you, what do you like better, over the knee boots or do you prefer to wear booties?
Happy Thanksgiving – eat, drink and be merry!!!
The calendar may have said November, but earlier in the month Mother Nature had some major hot flashes. Two weeks ago the temps were in the high 70’s breaking all sorts of records, but finally the Autumn weather has settled in here in the Mid Atlantic area.
As previously stated, the only thing I really liked about Daylight Saving Time was having a brighter morning to photograph OOTD pictures. However, depending on the time, some mornings the sunshine can be intense and overwhelming as you can plainly see from this picture.
I think I may have also mentioned in previous posts that I prepare my outfits for the entire week on Sunday nights, undoubtedly I must have missed the weather forecast for this week when I chose to wear this particular outfit. It was however comfortable despite the temps nearing almost 80 degrees!
Long sleeves and cowl neck shirts are my favorites especially paired with pencil skirts and this one was purchased a few seasons back from JCPenney. Ever since they closed the store in the Exton Square Mall which was very convenient to shop at during my lunch hour, I haven’t had an opportunity to visit any the other locations. I had always loved their clearance racks and they always had the cutest pencil skirts out of all the other retailers that I have shopped.
These shoes were purchased from Ross, my “Betty Boop” shoes as I like to call them are quite comfortable because of the platform. The scarf was purchased from Avon and it makes a great “mix and match” print when paired with the skirt – what do you think? The other accessories are silver tone which I normally pair with black and white outfits.
Soon it will be time to bring out the big and bulky sweaters of which I recently thrifted a few at the local Goodwill store in West Chester. When you get a chance, go check out the mini haul video on my YouTube channel and let me know what you think.

Hello friends, I trust you all had a wonderful weekend, mine was quite busy and it’s going to continue late into the night.
This evening I will be heading up to Wilmington to cover the Gordesi Launch Experience – Summer 2015 Collection as part of the VIP Press corp. I am really looking forward to attending this fashion event and I can’t wait to bring you all the exciting coverage.
Speaking of fashion, here is last week’s outfit roundup.
I am going to title this outfit “All in the Family”. Reading through fashion blogs I learned that if you are going to mix patterns, make sure the colors are all in the same family. So with this maxi skirt and black and white shirt, I chose to wear leopard print shoes and purse, I surprised myself with how it all came together.
The belt, purse and top were all thrifted from Goodwill, the flats were purchased at Citi Trends and the skirt has been in my closet forever. What do you think?
This outfit I am calling “Black and Blue Block”. You know how much I like my sleeveless sheath dresses and this one from Ross is no exception, and with it are my favorite Mia heels and Buddah Bag.
Necklace is Avon and bracelet is Old Navy. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the best thing about a sheath dress is that you can wear it all year long by just adding a blazer or cardigan when the temperatures dip. Speaking of Avon, check out my latest YouTube Video, it’s an Avon unboxing which includes beauty supplies that will be part of my Holiday Spa Day Giveaway coming next month!
Here I am in a bright Autumn orange. Orange is definitely a color that works well with my skin tone, not only in the summer but also during the fall. I like this top because it is so colorful and I think it was purchased at Rugged Wearhouse, can’t remember, but the wedge heels were.
I love to mix and match my bangle bracelets as well as the multi color necklace. This Pumpkin floral arrangement was a free find at work, it almost got tossed in the trash but it’s the only thing I use to decorate the house because I donated all the other Halloween decorations a few years ago. Now that my sons are older, we don’t really celebrate it anymore.
Do you decorate the house and yard for Halloween?
My only Halloween Decoration
This last outfit is entitled “Wild Wednesday”. Unfortunately, hubby didn’t get a good view of the peep toe wedges as they also have the “wild stripes” along the bottom.
This purse has been in my closet since 2008, it was one of those “I have to go back and get it” finds at a Flea Market in Orlando. Unfortunately, it has been on the top shelf in my closet for years but I just won’t get rid of it. I love the Egyptian pattern but it’s too small to even hold my wallet!
This khaki skirt was thrifted and the top is a one-piece twin set. In keeping with the wild theme, I am wearing brass earrings, beaded necklace, multi metal bracelet and oversized handmade ring – it was a wild and crazy day! So which outfit did you like the best?
Enjoy the rest of your day and we’ll chat tomorrow at Money Monday.
Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!
Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
In Delaware it is officially Autumn, the temps have dropped considerably (in the 50’s) and hubby even turned on the heat which I am definitely not happy about!
This sleeveless top was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and the slacks were purchase a few seasons ago at Boscov’s. Asymmetrical sweater was purchased either at TJMaxx or Marshall’s also a few seasons ago.
Put on a sweater if you are cold – “don’t turn on the ding dang dong heat – man!” Can you tell that I am a miser – heck you can even call me Scrooge!
Pour little tomato, it waited too late in the season to ripen so now it’s a “half and half” tomato – do you have a recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes?
Pumps // Avon
I love the fact that Avon has really “stepped up” their shoe game because not only are they cute but they are also extremely comfortable!
Have you started wearing your Autumn Attire?
It snowed in upstate New York and Ohio so soon I will be wearing sweaters, hats, scarves and gloves – I am so not ready but maybe this year, hubby will be able to use his snow blower!
Have a fantabulous afternoon/evening – Smooches!
