It’s the day before Valentine’s Day, do you have anything special planned…will Cupid be shooting any arrows your way? I’ve never been big on V-Day and prefer to get my candy the day after when it’s half price – lol Hubby and I may go out to dinner Friday night and I bought my sons a card and some candy from Dollar Tree, otherwise nothing special. I guess when you are single and dating, Valentine’s Day is more of a Holiday, but I tell my men everyday that I love them and the 14th of February will be no different.
I am still wearing red in honor of “America Goes Red for Women” month and will wear a wee bit more tomorrow.
We are expecting snow but not until this evening so I decided to wear my grey, suede booties to pick up the color in the shirt.
These Bamboo faux fur trimmed booties were purchased a few years ago from Burlington Coat Factory and despite their “ugliness”, they are quite comfortable.

I must admit that I am looking forward to eating a least a piece of chocolate tomorrow!
After a long restless night due to a toothache I awoke to this gift from God!
This is the calm before the storm as Winter is definitely in full force, with snow scheduled to begin falling around 3 p.m. The roads have been brined to cut down on commuter accidents because the temps are also going to drop even lower into the single digits.
As you can see, I am fully prepared and hopefully will leave early enough to stop and pick up a bottle of wine (for me) and Chinese take-out for my men. My plans are to be indoors snug-as-a-bug-in-the-rug until at least Sunday.
These Paisley Skinny Jeans and Infinity Scarf were both on clearance at Target and men’s sweater was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill). The boots have been in my closet for several years and most likely were purchased from Payless.
Believe it or not, this faux fur vest once was a coat that I DIY’d because it didn’t fit properly. I shorten the length using the excess for a scarf, removed the sleeves and made a pair of leg warmers.
Do you refashion clothing, if so, what have you done and how did it work out?
Being outside this morning was a little more bearable because of the lack of wind however, the temps are forecast to remain in the teens until at least the weekend. To that end, I would like to say to all of my left coast friends …”STOP COMPLAINING BECAUSE IT’S 40 DEGREES!!!“
I truly don’t mind the cold weather because it allows me to dress in layers and then make adjustments as necessary. For example today I am wearing a sleeveless grey dress covered with a blazer so if I have a “personal summer” I can simply remove the blazer until it passes.
This outfit started with shoes but in the sunshine the tights took on a weird greenish tint so I changed to my OTK, black suede boots.
This black faux fur once belonged to my sister so you know it’s been around since the late 80’s – I really don’t like driving in it because of the bulk.
