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.

Hyundai Sonata is a luxury 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!

Snowset in Delaware


Stepping Into Spring or Snow?

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.  I was hoping that by the time we stepped into March, we would be stepping into Spring, unfortunately in Delaware, we are still stepping in snow!

Stepping into Spring or Snow

I was out and about on Friday and Saturday and it wasn’t too bad, but yesterday morning it was snow, sleet and rain so I just got back into bed and pulled the covers over my head.  With a dip in overnight temps this morning the roads were slick and trees were bent but at least we are better off than we were this time last year!

Stepping into Spring or Snow

Not wearing a skirt or dress today, instead I decided to pull out my “goldenrod” suede suit, what color do you see?  By the way, what’s it up with the color of the dress controversy?  I tried to get my girls to explain it to me on Saturday night, but actually I just wanted to know whose dress it was but they couldn’t tell me, so if you know, please let me know.

what color is my suit?

With this suit, the animal print scarf breaks up the color and booties are my go-to ones in the winter.  I hope that spring comes soon because stepping into snow and ice with heels can be dangerous!  I hope the weather is better where you are, enjoy and be safe!
