Looking Forward


2.27.15

I’m working with what I have – and looking forward to spring! This blue sweater will be a nice “bridge” piece – it’s cotton, so I’ll be able to wear it well into March and maybe April if the cool weather sticks around. With Texas weather, you just never know. We’ve had snow in March!

Today’s Outfit:

Brown flannel shirt: Old Navy
Blue cotton sweater: Old Navy
Jordache skinny jeans: Walmart
White Mountain brown boots: DSW

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Stripes – Part Two


2.24.15

2.23.15

2.20.15
I hadn’t really thought about putting a striped t-shirt under a sweater until I saw a couple of photos on Pinterest, but it’s really pretty brilliant. I would normally just put a solid shirt under a sweater, but the stripes add a little extra punch. It was amazing the positive comments I received when wearing these outfits. A number of people said they’d never thought about this combination – and were going to try it soon. The mind reels with possibilities!

Today’s Outfit:

Outfit #1
Striped long sleeve tshirt: H&M USA
Merona grey turtleneck: Target
Jordache denim leggings: Walmart
Bandolino black riding boots: DSW
Green scarf: Target

Outfit #2
Striped long sleeve tshirt: H&M USA
White Stag black turtleneck: Walmart
Jordache grey skinny jeans: Walmart
Bandolino black riding boots: DSW

Outfit #3
Striped long sleeve tshirt: H&M USA
Red turtleneck sweater: Old Navy
Jordache skinny jeans: Walmart
White Mountain brown boots: DSW

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Stripes



2.23.15

2.2.15

I want to talk about stripes today (and about thinking outside the proverbial box, in general). Striped T-shirts are much more versatile than I ever imagined. Like a lot of people, I sometimes think too narrowly. I’m enjoying stretching myself – and you are part of the reason. When I started this blog I was pretty comfortable in thinking I could easily put together a different outfit every day. Not so. Writing and posting every weekday has been more challenging than I ever imagined, but I love every minute of it.

This striped t-shirt from H&M has been a true foundational item this winter – as evidenced by the multiple ways I’ve been able to wear it. Whether paired with a scarf or sweater, it adds a little variety to the normal jeans/sweater/boots combination. And I have a few more ideas up my sleeve…

Today’s Outfit:

Striped long sleeve tshirt: H&M USA
Jordache skinny jeans: Walmart
Jordache grey skinny jeans: Walmart
Nine West black booties: DSW
Anne Klein grey booties: DSW
Scarves: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Singing the Blues


 

2.24.15a

Good grief, when Texas decides to finally have winter, it doesn’t mess around. Sleet Sunday night and Monday, roads freezing over tonight and snow (yes, SNOW) in the forecast for tomorrow. Crazy.

I wore this outfit for a gig over the weekend – I really like tops like this because they hide whatever needs hiding. I will definitely be wearing similar tops all the way through Spring. A girl has to stick with what works!

Today’s Outfit:

Cobalt blue top: Sample Sale
Denim leggings: GAP
Black boots: White House/Black Market

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Winter. Still.



2.23.15

Texas weather is, if anything predictably unpredictable. I had a feeling we were in for one last cold front and sure enough, it’s here. We don’t get much pretty snow here – it’s usually sleet that coats everything in ice and makes driving ridiculous. So we just hunker down and watch movies while enjoying a nice fire, hot chocolate and lots of homemade chicken and noodles. And take comfort in the fact that Spring is just around the corner. I hope you’re staying warm!

Today’s Outfit:

White stag black turtleneck sweater: Walmart
Striped long sleeve tshirt: H&M USA
Jordache grey skinny jeans: Walmart
Bandolino black riding boots: DSW

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Warm Up/Cool Down


2.21.15

I love this outfit. The red checks just make me happy and the black sweater is the perfect compliment – it makes the red pop nicely. It was a great combination for a day that started off cool and warmed up nicely. A brief respite before the classic warm-up/cool down we often experience in Texas winters. I decided to vary my footwear a bit and forgo the normal boots and jeans. These little booties are some of my favorites – and they’re comfy, too!

Today’s Outfit:

Red checked shirt: Old Navy
Black 3/4 sleeve sweater: Costco
Denim leggings: GAP
Nine West black booties: DSW

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Target Style


2.19.15

You all know how much I love shopping at Target. This outfit is a perfect example of the gems you can find if you take a few minutes to peruse the clothing on your way to the frozen food section of your local Super Target. The ankle skinny green pants are the perfect weight to wear year round – in Texas, anyway. I bought the pants in several colors last year and was disappointed when I couldn’t find them this season. I hope Target will bring them back at some point!

Today’s Outfit:

Merona grey sweater: Target
Mossimo ankle skinny pants: Target
Merona black tank top: Target
Bandolino black riding boots: DSW
Scarf: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Mix it Up


2.20.15

If you’re like me you’ve pretty much exhausted your winter outfit options and are desperate for something different. After perusing Pinterest for a couple of hours last night, I decided to try mixing things up. I love my striped t-shirt, and my red sweater has been underused this season, so I thought they might be good companions – what do you think?

Today’s Outfit:

Red turtleneck sweater: Old Navy
Black and white striped t-shirt: H&M USA
Denim leggings: GAP Outlet
White Mountain  brown boots: DSW

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Winter Days


2.18.15

Well today’s outfit was a success. I got lots of compliments on my boots and a thumbs up from the cashier at Twisted Root who said “Wow! I love your boots! And your outfit is adorable!” I’ll take that. Especially in these last gasp days of winter when every sweater looks old and tired to me. Does anyone feel that way right now? I’m determined not to succumb to the temptation to buy something new – it just doesn’t make sense when spring is just around the corner.

On another note (pun intended), my music career seems to be taking off – well at least baby steps. I had a great time singing at a wonderful supper club called the Kitchen Cafe last Friday. It was a “Night of Romance” so I got to do some wonderful love songs. I won’t bore you with too many photos, but I can’t resist sharing one…

Thanks for indulging me!

Today’s Outfit:

Mossimo black sweater: Target
Denim leggings: GAP Outlet
Merona brown boots: Target
Scarf: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Over It


2.16.15

2.17.15

I couldn’t decide how to wear my scarf today. I tried several different ways, and finally decided on the second one. I’ve worn this sweater with other scarves, but this one might be my favorite. There’s just enough purple in it to make it work and it’s nice and bright for grey days.

I have to admit I’m over winter. We’re having another cold spell this week, and in all honesty I’m ready to put my winter clothes away for awhile. I’m struggling to come up with different ways to wear what I have – but you keep me motivated! I won’t give up. I promise!

Today’s Outfit:

Mossimo eggplant sweater: Target
Denim leggings: GAP Outlet
Bandolino black leather riding boots: DSW
Scarf: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!
