Sweater Skirts

DSC_0008The weather was horrible yesterday. The hurricane pushed a front through which included rain, wind, and cooler temperatures. It actually reminded me of the weather my daughter experiences in Alaska. The misty rain, and a low of 57 with a high of 60, was so much like the weather was when I visited her a couple of years ago. She loves it, but me, not so much. I decided to take advantage of the cooler weather and wear a new sweater skirt I bought yesterday. In full disclosure, I must admit that I actually bought two. I love all the different colors of brown’s in this one. I wore a pair of tights, that I already had, under the skirt. This would be the only way I would wear a skirt this short. I do not have pretty legs and you do not need to be subjected to them. You can thank me later.DSC_0019The boots are my trusty riding boots that go with pretty much everything. If you don’t already own a pair of boots like these, go now. These are a fall “must have”, at least I think so. Here is a gorgeous pair from Macy’s.DSC_0010

I have on a couple of carved bangles in different shades of brown and a handmade bracelet that I picked up last year, from Artistic Icing, that says Amazing Grace. I love wearing this, it never fails to bring me a smile when I look at it. And of course, I like to throw in at least one item that is vintage, and this time it is my purse. This is dark brown patent leather with the middle insert being a lighter brown in suede. Smaller than I would carry on a daily basis, but perfect for taking to church.DSC_0018Not the best angle for me, but here is how the sweater looked from the side. I bought this fisherman sweater last year at Old Navy. This one is very similar.DSC_0020You might have noticed a subtle change in me. I added pink streaks to my hair for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. These “glue” in and usually last me the entire month of October. I will have a post later in the month about some of the activities I am involved in during this month.DSC_0004 DSC_0006The great thing is, when I walked outside this morning, this was what greeted me. The first song at church this morning was “This is the Day”. How appropriate.

    Just found your blog through JoLynne Shane. I love all of your outfits and laughed so hard when I read about your not-so-pretty legs. I try to keep my legs covered as much as possible also, so I know exactly what you mean. You look fabulous in the tights. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks so much Lisa. I really appreciate your taking the time to comment. Us ladies with the no-so-pretty legs really love Fall and Winter. We can just say that tights are a the latest trend. Lol!

      Oh, Brandye, I am so sorry to hear this. I can not even begin to imagine the pain that must still be with you. I can only hope and pray, that in some small way, our actions can save the life of someone by bringing awareness to this disease.
