Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It took me a while to get myself together after this morning’s encounter with my neighbor, but I’m glad that it happened because last night I dreamt about my aunt who passed away on Friday. However, the reason for being extremely late this morning was the multiple outfit changes, not the Polka Dot dress, that was a given but what to wear with it. I tried 2 different shirts over it,…2 different shirts underneath it…3 different color blazers before finally settling on this Aqua Cardigan.   I buttoned it and put on a pair of Mossimo flats then looked into the mirror, I immediately thought about FLOTUS Obama meeting The Queen of England.

Remember the flack she got for having the audacity to wear a sweater to meet The Queen for the first time – puh-leeze people – get a life! No matter your political affiliation, that was just stupid with a capital “S”, such an embarrassment for our country…just one of many…okay stepping down from the Soap Box now.

I am so glad that the weather is finally warming up, the birds were chirping in all their glory..aah the sounds of Spring.

Today’s outfit seemed appropriate as a transition from Winter to Spring what do you think?

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

‘Ole Man Winter is finally giving up with temps rising every day this week, by Good Friday all the snow should be melted. Yesterday schools dismissed early so kids in the neighborhood had a chance to play in the snow, 1 house even made a family of snow people including a dog, it was so cute.

I miss not having little guys anymore and hate to see kids that are too attached to electronics. I’ve seen toddlers in grocery carts playing with their parent’s iPhones or iPads.   I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to go outside and play!  Growing up we were up and out early riding bikes, jumping Double Dutch, playing Jacks, BoxBall, Hop Scotch, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, Freeze Tag, all kinds of outside games.

I truly miss those times – what were some of your favorite childhood games?

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

3.13.13 and it’s still Winter but Spring is right around the corner and I’m frantically trying to wear as many of my winter clothes before it’s officially over!

You may remember when I wore this skirt with brown booties in November (here), but today I chose to wear it with beige pumps to lighten it up a bit.

I would also like to thank my Bloggy friends who co-signed on Tuesday’s Testimony, when we are of one accord blessings pour down like rain!

Don’t ever be afraid to testify  –  you never know, it might help somebody!

Winter Wardrobe

I love this brush suede skirt because it’s style is fashionable for a woman of my age and it fits to a “T” with a perfect length.  So glad someone donated it to the GW Boutique (Goodwill). I am going to say the same for these pumps which are also classic in style and just the right heel height because I might cut back on higher heels…NOT!

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!

How does your favorite color make you feel?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

I was born in 1961, so it seems strange to use the term “throwback” when referring to the 1980’s, but it is. Today’s outfit is totally thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) but from two different decades. The blue and white Houndstooth blazer was thrifted in 1989, which you can probably tell by the Dynasty/Falcon Crest shoulder pads. Remember when they introduced Dianne Carroll as Dominique Deveraux; or the pool fight scene or the first time the “B” word was used, or when they went crazy after Rock Hudson revealed he had AIDS? Man oh Manischewitz, that was definitely some “must see TV!”

The skirt and shoes were just thrifted last year however, the styles make them look a little dated as well.  The white shell earrings were purchased at Rehoboth Beach also in the ’80’s and match the buttons on the blazer.

Last week while blog hopping I entered a giveaway contest to win a scarf from The Posh’mina.  One of the Rafflecopter’s entry requirements was to leave a comment on the company’s Facebook page.  After viewing the online shop I chose the Hi’biscus style and commented that I would love to feature it on my blog. Within a matter of hours I received a reply from them with an offer to send one – wow the power of Facebook.  (now I need to find a giveaway that offers to pay my bills-lol)

Anywho, a lovely lady by the name of Debbie, also touted as being “Fashionably Fifty” from The Posh’mina contacted me,  stated that she liked my blog and would love to send a scarf for me to post. I agreed and said that I would wear it to church taking pictures from there, however, upon receipt I was like a kid at Christmas and couldn’t wait to wear it!

The company’s promo states that they had evolved big scarves to become more fashionable and versatile than ever.  I definitely have to agree because of it’s design; the slotted arm holes is by far the best feature.  How many times has your pashmina scarf fallen off your arms and onto a dirty floor in a public place?  The innovative design of the slotted arm holes prevents this from occurring as well as the constant adjusting and slip sliding from the shoulders.

I love the print of this scarf, the style is Hi’Biscus and there are currently 15 styles available online.  Made in India, designed in the United States and are 100% Viscose.  Dry cleaning is recommended but I will hand wash in a tub of cool water and Woolite when it needs to be freshened then lightly steamed pressed with an iron.
