I am ready to strangle my husband. He is in a great mood, which is usually a good thing, but today has been a very, very busy day, and I need to concentrate. You usually can’t get Joe to talk about anything, but all day long, he has been “chatty Kathy.” Lol! We have had in-depth conversations about cooking a pork roast, about Charlie Sheen from Two And A Half Men, and I can now tell you everything that you need to know about his newfound golf swing. But, I can’t tell you anything about what I was supposed to be doing today because all I could do was listen to him. Lol!
Joe finally went out of town for a couple of hours, and I got the chance to take some photos of some outfits that I have gotten recently. My daughter-in-law and my grandson met me at a school we have in town so that she could take my photos for me. It was freezing outside, and I don’t know how my lips didn’t look blue in the pictures. My grandson was running around like mad having the best time in the world, and he was utterly oblivious to the fact that it was in the lower 30’s. Of course, he did have on a big puffer jacket, and he was running the entire time, so he was the smart one. You will see him later on in this post because he loved hopping in the photos for pictures. He is just like his big sister, Emersyn, blonde hair with blue eyes and cute as a bug!!!
Speaking of cute as a bug, I am obsessing over this adorable reindeer sweater from Loft. I like dressing festive for some occasions, and Christmas is one of my favorites occasions. But, I don’t like having such a short time for being able to wear my festive clothing. So, instead of buying a “Merry Christmas” shirt, or one that has a picture of Santa Claus on it, I opt for things that can be worn all winter long. These reindeer look wintery, a snowman would look wintery, or a shirt that says, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” would all be items that I could wear all winter long. The longer the time that you can wear an item, the more bang for your buck you get.
The sweater is super soft and is lightweight. It has long sleeves and a round neckline, and it hits me right around my hips. I love that the sweater is machine washable, I don’t have a dry cleaner handy, so this is essential for me. I am wearing a size large, which is roomy, but it isn’t too big on me. Here is the link to the sweater, and Loft is having a 40% off the entire purchase and free shipping, so be sure to check it out.
Someone asked me to wear something other than skinny jeans, so here you go. Today I have a pair of flare jeans on that I love. Flare jeans are flattering for almost any body shape. They help to balance out your body, and the extra width and volume at the bottom make your legs look longer. They look great with boots (like I am wearing here), and they look especially great with wedge sandals or espadrilles. One of the great reasons to have a pair of flare jeans in your closet is so that you stand out from the crowd. Skinny jeans are still the king, and since those are what most people will be wearing, you will get noticed for marching to a different tune.
You might be getting sick of seeing me wearing my ankle boots with the cuff, but I love these boots. I love the darker brown color, I am wearing whiskey, and I love how comfortable they are to wear. The chunky heel is 2 3/4″ tall, but the boots are very easy to walk in, and I can wear them all day long without any issues. I am wearing a 9.5 (I normally wear a 9) and these fit great. Here is the link to the boots, they come in a couple of different colors, and they are still 40% off.
I told you that my little man would man an appearance later in the post. You got to see a glimpse of him from the back earlier, but he wanted to tell everyone hello. I told you that he was the smart one, look at how warm he is in his Frost-Free color-blocked puffer jacket. This is a very soft jacket, and it has an attached hood, so you don’t have to always be looking for a boggin. The jacket is from Old Navy, and if you have a little one to buy for, this will make a great gift. Here is the link to the jacket. And, his adorable color-blocked velcro sneakers are from Old Navy also, Here is that link.
I am anxious to hear what you thought about the sweater, about the photos, and about how cute you thought my little man is. Lol! I have a surprise giveaway for some lucky lady who leaves a comment, so let me hear what you have to say!!!
