Cool outside = Xhilaration

DSC_0149Good morning everyone! I hope you are staying warm, it was really cold here this morning. I would not have been surprised if you could have seen my breath in the pictures.  I think it was 32 when I woke up this morning. This fur vest just seemed to be calling my name when I was looking through my closet. I bought this Xhilaration vest at TJ Maxx last year, however when I searched online, I could only find these at Target. It is very similar, just a little different color.DSC_0144I thought silver accessories just seemed like the right choice. The watch was a gift from one of my best friends. I love it, but it needs a few links taken out. One of the disadvantages to small town living, there isn’t a jewelry store close by. The earring’s are just round silver discs that dangle, and are from Cato’s. I think they were 3.99.DSC_0146Here is a little better shot of the watch, I think it is called a boyfriend style. The necklace is multiple chains that connect two silver buckle’s, and it is also from Cato’s.  DSC_0143For a little interest, I added a vintage silver bracelet. The stones reminds me of an aquarium. You can’t see great detail, but you can see all the different colors. DSC_0147I bought these boots last year, and can’t remember for the life of me where I purchased them. I think I bought them on a trip to Atlanta, when I went to a Vintage Fashion Show there. Here is a similar pair from Lord & Taylor. My red Dooney & Bourke purse added some much need color.DSC_0148A black turtleneck from Old Navy, and a pair of Simply Vera Vera Wang black ponte pants, complete the outfit. Here is a similar pair of pants, on sale, from Kohl’s.DSC_0150Beckley is getting in the holiday spirit with his glow-in-the-dark shirt. He may have to start his very own doggie blog. Got any suggestions for the name? Lol!
