Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Delaware dodged the snowstorm bullet yesterday, we only got a little rain and heavy winds and today the sun is shining with temps hovering above the 40 degree mark.  Next week’s forecast call for highs in the 50’s to low 60’s, Spring is right around the corner, and more sunlight with the start of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday – don’t forget to “Spring Forward”.

Today’s outfit includes the color turquoise, a color that I like in clothing but not in jewelry.  Turquoise, The Gem of Native Americans was very popular in the 60’s and early ’70’s,  it seemed as though everyone had a big Turquoise ring or necklace, both men and women.  Sapphire Green is supposed to be the “it” color for Spring, but Royal and Cobalt blues are my favorites as well as the lighter shades like turquoise because of their calming effects.

Calm, cool and collected – ready to take on the day!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

Yeah yeah yeah, we are on the down stroke to the weekend!  I really have to stop rushing my life away, every day is a new day to be cherished and savored, but ding dang dong it – I LOVE THE WEEKENDS!!!

I also love OLIVES, I love the color OLIVE and I love the vegetable… or is it a fruit…OLIVES …hey…in what food group is an OLIVE?

I do know that olives are a staple in the Mediterranean diet which has been scientifically confirmed that it reduces the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular diseases by 30 percent and is great for people trying to lose weight.  I only cook with light Virgin Olive Oil, have used it as a hair care product and if I drank Martinis I would do it only for the OLIVES!

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.

It appears as though everyone is back to work because the commute was slow and I drove even slower trying to save gas. Can you believe the prices, I last paid $3.65 for a gallon and it’s goes up a few cents every day.  How much is it in your area?

My commute is 100 miles round trip and it is definitely putting a dent in my wallet, so to save money I have vowed not to shop until April when the prices are supposed to drop. The economic recovery is no where near where it should be and these gas prices aren’t helping!  Before my self imposed shopping freeze I was able to snag two skirts from JC Penney’s for $5 each and am wearing one of them with a thrifted top and blazer.

Hello Friends and Happy Sunny Sunday

This morning’s church service was blessed with a sermon by a visiting minister from Wilmington, and visiting guests from a small neighboring church in Middletown.  A great way to start off the week and I am looking forward to an even more blessed work week, I hope it’s the same for you!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

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.

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

This morning’s Church service was good, unfortunately the building was without heat but our souls was warmed by the Word.   I hope the rest of your day goes well and if you are off tomorrow for Dr. King’s Birthday, (I’m not), enjoy and be a blessing to someone!

I was really excited to realize that the Miche bag I had purchased in November at the Holiday Open House, matched the shoes that I purchased from Target last week. Don’t you love when that happens?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve

Are you ready for some snow? If so, “tonight is the night…is the night…is the night” at least it’s supposed to be in southern Delaware. Fortunately, they are forecasting less than an inch so the commute home may not be too bad.

Today’s outfit, Black and Burgundy is featuring a pair of Merona pumps and Mossimo belted pencil skirt from last night’s haul at Target.Image

If you follow me on Instagram (ablake48), you’d know that I start my mornings with a healthy, green, breakfast smoothie.  Today’s smoothie was made with spinach, carrots, banana, almond milk and Chia Seeds.

ImageI am so loving these heels, I may stop and get another pair in Taupe!
