It snowed last night here in Virginia! I love to see snow; it makes everything look so beautiful and clean. We don’t get a lot of snow in the area that I live, and this one is only an inch or so, but I am like a child when it comes to snow. I can remember playing out in the snow for hours (probably minutes) when I was younger. My sister and I would only come inside when mom demanded that we come in and warm up. Goodness, I can still remember how bad my fingers would hurt as they were starting to thaw out. Yikes!!!
I don’t know if they made snowsuits back then, or if we didn’t have one. But I can remember pulling on several pairs of pants to try and keep warm. You would have on so many layers of clothing that you could barely walk. Lol! I am not sure how many pairs of socks that I would pull on, but I am surprised that my shoes went on feet. We always made snowcream when I was young; it was my favorite thing to do when it snowed. We also broke off icicles hanging from the roof and ate them, so now you know why I am a little bit on the crazy side. Lol! There is no way that I would do either of those things now. Now I know about pollution, chemicals in the air, and yellow snow, so I’ll buy my snow cream/ice cream in the store instead. Hahaha!
Y’all, I am seriously ordering in clothing for spring, but it is so stinking cold outside. I am looking online for clothing to wear when it starts warming up outside, but in real life, I am sitting here is a sweatshirt and a heated throw on my lap. Lol! When you blog, you have to look ahead and order things way ahead of time regularly. I am not good at that aspect of blogging, I am more a reactive type of person, instead of a plan-ahead kind of person.
Do you remember that I told you that I ordered this oversized sweater from Target in this gorgeous wine, and also in a pretty blue color? I now have this same sweater in three different colors since I already had it in the tan color. (see here) Lol! It is such a comfortable sweater to wear, and I find myself reaching for it over and over. It is oversized and relaxed, and even though I am wearing a medium, it is still big. I wanted to give you an idea of how you could wear an oversized sweater alone or with a belt. Here is the link to the sweater.
Pencil skirts are flattering to almost everyone. They hug your hips, and then they fit tighter to the legs, which gives you a curvy silhouette. I am made thicker in my middle, so curves are not something that I normally have. By wearing a pencil skirt, I can “create” curves with fashion. So, I am going to call them my “fashionable curves.” Lol! I usually look for some detail or color to make my skirt stand out from the rest. The solid black panel in mine (probably five years old) helps to bring your eye inward and creates even more curves for me. When shopping, try to keep what you want to achieve in the back of your mind.
Winter is here, and I am cold. I will not be going outside showing skin, so it is all covered up with my over the knee boots. Emersyn went to church with me, and she was looking at my boots. I asked her what she was looking at, and then she said, “how far do those boots go up?” Lol! When I raised my skirt a few inches to show her that they weren’t THAT tall, she was satisfied. I can see her wanting her own pair of over the knee boots in the future. Lol! My BP boots have already sold out, but I want to give you some tips when shopping for these style boots. Try to buy the type with some stretch, so that have some give to them. And, be sure to measure your calves in the widest part so that you can get a good fit. Pay close attention to the description of the boots on the website so that you have a better chance of getting a pair that fits you.
