My hat's off to the Snowbunny Fashion Bloggers!!!
As one who lives in the Midwestern U.S., I experience all four seasons. I LOVE fall and spring. Dislike (alot!) the sweltering temperatures of late, dry summer, and REALLY dislike tons of snow. (Unless I am bundled up like the kid from A Christmas Story.) It's hard to be stylish in sub-zero temps !
I am always up to the challenge. The attention-getting side of me LOVES to wear unlikely combos, if only going to the grocery for winter supplies!- and turning a few heads who wonder why I am wearing a skirt in this awful mess! ;)
I was too lazy to take my own photos of the newest batch. so I share what it looks like on my street (if i were in Finland!)
Layers upon Layers!
A great pair of shades. These wayfarers are from Banana Boat originals form the 80's.
A thick wool turtle neck with a T under and a thermal lined hoodie over.
This wool vest was thrifted a ways back and is soooo warm, plus I like the baby blue. It has no tag, but appears vintage, due to the high quality of it.
My go-to berets, with my Husband's snow boots!
And a big wool flower on the hoody.
Heavy cotton ribbed tight and thermal knee socks.
My tights are kinda brown, but definitely has some grape in them.
I layered two skirts. I thrifted two of the same American Eagle silk skirts. One on right has pinks, while the one on left has blues.
I layer them together and let one peek our from underneath!
The blue vest added a needed "break-up" between the tans.
The brown flower pin was added to the hoody.
Silver earrrings from the 70's. I do keep things that I feel are timeless, or a part of my natural style. These were one of those pairs. I am gonna remove the blue bead and add a turqouise one. It will add beauty to the sterling silver.(ALSO A GOOD SHINE!) The best way to shine up silver is to use these wipes made by CONNOISSEURS. In a red plastic oval box. They are really cheap, about 5 bucks, They are at the big "W-mart",Walgreens, etc. and thy last forever!
Strapped on my newest favorite thrift. A brown satchel from Goodwill $4.00)
It's definitely from the 70's or late 60's. But it is not leather : (
A lovely photo of an iron fence.
There's no denying the beauty of nature, even if sometimes it seems a bit inconvenient.I Even dislike the Sweat dripping down my back as the sunscreen clogs up my pore during the dog days of summer, although I want to spend my retired days at an ocean-side condo. Just a few skirts. t's, sarongs and flip-flops. Plus big floppy hats and a gelatto (misspelled) shop around the corner. My car- an original vee-bee (Volkswagon) convertible and a cool cruising bike with a basket on the front for my sketch pad and pastel pencils.
Or live in perpetual Autumn or Spring!
FOR NOW I WILL ENJOY HIKING THROUGH THE SNOW TO CAPTURE A FEW PICTURES. FEELING THE NUMBNESS OF COLD KISSING MY FACE. MAYBE I'LL BE BLESSED WITH A BIG, BELLY LAUGH WHEN I SEE SOMEONE BUST THEIR ASS. come on, You Know You Laugh!
A BEAUTIFUL IGLOO.( Looks cozy!)
looks like heaven!
Our backyard baby woods looks alot like this photo. The wild honeysuckles are bent to the ground!
Maybe l'll go hiking tomorrow! :)
