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.

OOTD – Out of the Closet

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve

How often do you venture into the back of your closet? Are you afraid of going back there…are you afraid of what you might find…or are you just afraid of getting lost never to be seen again? I very rarely look in the back of my closet, not because of it’s size but because that’s where I keep clothes that no longer fit but don’t want to get rid of…as if I’ll ever wear my Wedding Night nightgown again!  Unfortunately, included with those items are also others that wish they could see the light of day because they have been forgotten yet still fit.

Thanks to the avalanche in my closet I can now see clear to the back and guess what I saw….pantsuits….lots and lots of pantsuits, which were very popular in the mid-90’s.  At one time in Corporate America before there was a “Work From Home” program when you could wear sweats, jeans or pajamas, Casual Friday’s for women meant wearing pantsuits to the office and I had quite a few.   The one that I am wearing today was probably kept because of the unique buttons which is it’s best feature otherwise, it’s just a “plain Jane” pantsuit.

I think my son may have been a little upset with me this morning and took it out on my head which in most pics has been chopped.

OOTD – Don’t Step on my Blue Suede Shoes!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This morning I jumped out of bed when I realized it was Friday….tomorrow I can sleep in – yay!  I am such a sleepy head, I never get enough sleep – sometimes I am tired of being tired.  Commuting back and forth to work 1 & 1/2 hours each way every day really takes a toll on me and my car.  Tomorrow I am sleeping in until noon!!!

How many of you remember  Elvis Presley’s hit, Blue Suede Shoes – well this is my version of the shoe, actually booties and they are much nicer than what he sang about.  If you do remember Elvis, what was your favorite song or movie, I liked Blue Hawaii.

Wednesday, my son’s Business Class went on a Field Trip to Macy’s in NYC, he purchased a pair of Nike Sneakers and this T-Shirt which I thought was really nice.  I can’t wait until he no longer wants it because I’d love to wear it!

OOTD – Sensible Shoes

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, 15 days until Christmas and the 7th day of Hanukkah 2012.

 Today is one of those, “jump back into bed pull the covers over your head” type of days.  It’s cold, damp and dreary,  but it’s also another day the Lord has kept us so I’ll rejoice and be glad in it.  However, the dreary weather is cause for my dreary outfit including the sensible shoes.

OOTD – Autumn in the Air

Happy Tuesday my friends.

Today’s Autumn-like weather, which officially doesn’t start until Friday had me breaking out the sweater and umbrella.

OOTD – Work Week Skirt Week – Day 2

Today this morning it was brisk, bright and cloudless, eerily similar to the morning of 9.11.01

RIP to all those who were tragically lost on that day – our Angels forever

Day 2 of skirt week is completely thrift-free which for me is a feat!  In June, I purchased this Valerie Bertinelli skirt  (worn here) at Marshalls, I didn’t want to pay full price but I also didn’t want to wait for it to be marked down.  The top was either purchased at Marshalls, TJ Maxx or Ross, as they all have similar clothing items.

Wishing you a wonderful evening.


OOTD – Work Week Skirt Week – Day 1

Monday…Monday…Monday…and what a beautiful day it is – the Lord has truly blessed us with a gorgeous pre-Autumn day.  I am happy to be able to turn off the AC and open up the windows, I will however miss the heat but not the high electric bills!  I had planned on clearing out my closet over the weekend but decided to work outside instead.  In addition to the shoes scattered on my closet floor I have a lot of skirts hanging.  It’s time to start wearing them more frequently so that I can determine what to keep and what to donate.  This week the theme “a skirt a day”, starts with an Army green denim which is perfect for today’s brisk weather.

Toes are staying out


OOTD – Rainy Days and Tuesdays

Breathe in through the nose….blow out through the mouth….again….breathe in through the nose….hold it….hold it….now….breathe out pushing hard…  Whew – I love shortened work weeks but sometimes it can be a bit much especially since I was also off last Friday and will be off again this Thursday.  Last Monday’s post was entitled “Rainy Days and Mondays”, and a tribute to The Carpenters, today’s post is “Rainy Days and Tuesdays” a tribute to Summer 2012.  If you live on the East coast, one thing we can all agree upon is that Summer 2012 was extremely hot AND Summer 2012 went by extremely too fast!  I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time poolside and even lucked out on Friday and got one last day before the weather turned.  There probably won’t be anymore 90 degree, lazy, hazy pool days this month and next month I will have the pool closed.  The rain is supposed to continue here until Thursday and I hope it’s the same forecast in Charlotte, North Carolina.  President Obama’s acceptance speech is outdoors and it would be terrible for people to be standing outside in the rain, so prayers going up for good weather!

I am wearing another shift dress from Burlington Coat Factory, which I love because it can be worn all seasons by simply adding a blazer or cardigan in the fall and then tights and boots in the winter.

Toes are going to stay out until it starts to snow – sike! These Fioni shoes were purchased last year from Payless and are very comfortable.  Bracelet and earrings are jewelry box staples, the ring is my birthstone, Sapphire – September…Virgo….yeah!!!  Necklace purchased over the weekend from Rugged Wearhouse for $1.49!!!!

Although we didn’t leave town or go on vacation this summer, I must admit that it was very nice to have mini staycations because it allowed me to spend quality time with my men.  Looking forward to cooler temps and beautiful colors of fall.  Have a fantabulous day and stay dry!

Apple Bottoms purse was also purchased last year from Burlington Coat Factory
