When in Doubt, What Do You Wear?

DSC_0010I survived the weekend!!! My feet are really, really, tired because I only sat down once (to eat) from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  I know what you are thinking, “Do want a little cheese with that wine”? Why, yes, I believe I do. LOL!redGood to know! I just thought I needed a little pick-me-up. I (now) love wearing red, but it has not always been that way. In fact, I never owned anything red, probably till I was around 30. Or, if I owned something red, I rarely wore it. The reason had nothing to do with my skin tone, the color, or anything reasonable. Instead, it was simply because I was shy, and I thought if I wore red, people would look at me. How funny is that since I have now started a blog, a Facebook page, an Instagram page, and I upload my pictures to Pinterest almost daily.  I think I might be cured. HahahaDSC_0009This cardigan really pops in this outfit. I have worn is several times over the past few years, it is the perfect red. I bought this one from J.C. Penny, and it is Worthington brand. I like the longer style cardigans, I think they help me look taller and thinner. The short cropped cardigans, or sweaters, cut you in half, making you look shorter. I am wearing the cardi over a Van Heusen blue stripped button down shirt. This shirt was purchased last year when I went to the Vintage Fashion Show in Atlanta. I love that it doesn’t need to be ironed.DSC_0013The necklace’s were made by my talented co-worker. I gave her the keys, and she made the necklaces. We encourage her to sell her things on Etsy, but she likes giving them away. She is the sweetest thing ever. Did you even notice the bracelet? It is an old key that I gave her, and she bent it to fit around my wrist. It is my favorite bracelet. The only problem with it, is the clasp. I need to buy her some magnet closures, I have all kinds of trouble putting on bracelets by myself. DSC_0011The real show stopper was these cute shoes. I bought them on my trip to Atlanta at a place called the Glitzy Chicks. They sold the shoes, and I had them monogrammed with my initials. No, they are not converse, but I think they are adorable. My husband on the other hand, thinks they are hideous.  What does he know???DSC_0014I know I am just asking for trouble, wearing these extremely distressed jeans. I bought these at Cato’s this past August. I love these, but I usually save them for the weekends. But, since I work in a lumber company, I don’t feel the need to “dress up” everyday.

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving week. The countdown has started, food-topia is about to begin. While this may not be the best timing, I am wanting to lose some weight. I need help, so I hope you guys will be my encouragement. More details to come in the next few days. There goes my cheese and wine…..

  2. I know this is an older post, but this outfit gave mevlife! I dont usually wear red, but I’m loving this. So cute, diva-ish and appropriate! I recently list 80+ pounds and I’m a casual type with an addiction to word t shirts, bracelets and bags. Your blog gives me ideas and new direction! Thanks for sharing and your sacrifice and commitment! And your family is beautiful! Peace, blessings, love and joy!

    1. WOW!!! Congrats on the weight loss! I am so glad you have found my little blog and are enjoying it.

  3. I always wear blue when I don’t know what to wear. I am racking my brain trying to remember if I own anything red! Well, things with Bucky Badger on them don’t count.

  4. LOVE your monogramed sneakers!! And, love the quote from Bill Blass – oh so true!! Thank you for linking up with SHOE AND TELL on Style Nudge!!


    1. Thanks, Cherie for the opportunity to link-up!????

    Tania, still shy about posting an outfit but I will do one day soon. I am writing because even though I have successfully subscribed to your blog, I do not get notification emails at all. This forces me to go back in time each time I log on and remember to look at your blog. Did I do something wrong when I signed up or do you not send daily notifications? I am a fan and you continue to supply my weekly outfit fixes!

    1. Debbie, I had another reader say they were having trouble with the sign up notifications. I added a button to this mornings blog to try to fix the problem. Let me know, if you can signup again, if this works.

  6. I can totally relate in that I hated attention in any way so used to hide away in black. Red is a stunning colour, you’ve chosen a shade of red that’s perfect for you! Love how you’ve chosen a bright green bag with your outfit.

  7. Your outfit made me smile when I saw it! I think you dress adorable and your personality simply cracks me up!

    1. Awww, thanks Kimberly!

  8. This is a fabulous look! I’ve always felt the same about red but it looks beautiful with the striped shirt. And don’t ever listen to husbands when it comes to shoes. They think one black pair is sufficient for everything.

    1. One black, one brown, and if your lucky, one navy pair????

  9. So you and I and Monica were all thinking the same thing. I had planned to wear a striped or checked shirt with my red cardigan today as well. Last minute I changed my mind and wore my Fair Isle sweater (turquoise and blue predominantly) because it is FRIGID here: 22 degrees. I knew I would need warmth. We have 7 inches of snow on the ground. I LOVE the outfit! I just love navy, red and blues (in any hue) together. Well, Happy Thanksgiving PREPARATIONS. I have lots of cooking to do. So what are you wearing turkey day?

    1. Sharon, we just all have good taste! Hahaha. We don’t have a lot of family members here, so I don’t have to do a lot of cooking. I might be in sweatpants. Lol!

  10. I found you on Pinterest and have been following your blog for a few weeks- I Love your style, and today’s outfit is absolutely adorable! Love the bold red look, and the monogram sneakers…. love, love, love. So glad you put yourself out there and started this fashion blog! Keep it up! 🙂

    1. Thanks Jules, for all your kind words. It is sometimes hard to put myself out there. I am still in the learning phase.????

  11. This outfit is perfection and tell your hubby that the shoes are keepers. 😉

  12. Oh yeah on the weight loss front, I’m the same always wanting to lose weight during the holidays, lol.
    Since I’m off this week I’ll be climbing A Mountain everyday to get my butt in gear, lol!! What do you do to as a workout?

  13. Tania, this outfit is the cutest!!!
    I have this week off ( yes I’m rubbing it in lol) and now I know what I’m wearing today to run a few errands. Knew I wanted to wear jeans, boots, n a Jean jacket but was at a loss for a top until I saw your beautiful red cardi…I have a shiny, red blouse that I’ll be wearing today in honor of you! Thanks 🙂

  14. Oh Girl… you are making me want a red cardigan! It’s all about finding the perfect red for me since some reds sallow my skin. And ‘no iron’ shirts are wonderful, I mean… who wants to iron, right?

    1. Thanks Donna and Diane! As far as ironing goes, Ain’t nobody got time for that! Hahaha

  15. You are getting a little bolder ever day Thank God I didn’t scar you for life buying you that dress for prom.

    1. You have scarred me in soooo many ways! Hahaha

  16. Oh my gosh I totally just saw your blog and realized we dressed alike today I put on a stripe blue shirt with a red cardigan today… may switch to jeans but I have a pair of gray slacks on .. don’t worry about others, the distressed jeans are cute and so are the shoes.

    1. Monica, we are style sista’s today????
