It was bleeping COLD yesterday! The high temperature here in good ol’ Maryland was a whopping 27° F (-2.7° C); the low temp in the morning was 17° F (-8.3° C). AND it was windy, so there was a wind chill. Brrrr! Now that the temperatures are getting lower, prepare yourself for my annual, winter whining.
I finally wore the black, velvet dress that I bought last year. One of the great things about creating my capsule wardrobe is that I can take the clothes that I haven’t worn on a “test run”. The black, velvet dress is definitely a keeper. It’s warm and it’s short, so that means I can wear this dress in the rain and (maybe) in the snow.
Here’s yesterday’s outfit. Of course, wearing short dresses in the winter means wearing thermal leggings and legwarmers underneath. The leggings and legwarmers are considered underwear and socks, so they’re not included with the “66“.
Here’s my “lazy face”. It’s so hard for me to wake up and get out of bed when it’s freezing cold, so that means “barely there” makeup:
That’s all for today. I want to say, “Thank you” to all of you who expressed concern, love, and sympathy for my dark mood recently. It makes such a difference knowing there are people who care. ((BIG HUGS))
Hello, lovelies! It’s finally the weekend and beautiful weather has been creeping back in. Such a relief not to have to deal with the snow and ice for awhile. This was the first day of 2015 that I did not have to wear my heavier coat. Woo hoo!
This is the second time this week that I’m wearing my long, black dress. It’s a main staple in my wardrobe. I wear this all-year round, wearing it with a jacket and a shirt underneath for Spring and Fall, and by itself for Summer. I purchased the velvet jacket from dash A clothing (Etsy) and I love it. It’s frilly, but not cumbersome.
Here’s what I wore on Thursday:
**NOTE: There are scam alerts regarding iMosh, which is why I didn’t include a link. While I’m happy that I received this rosary, I ordered another necklace, along with this rosary 2 years ago, which I never received. The last status of the second necklace was on back order. Oh, well. You live and you learn. I would say, “buyer beware”, but it looks like the site is no longer active.
Here’s Thursday’s makeup. Nothing out of the ordinary:
People are starting to take out their Spring clothing, so there will be pastel colors everywhere. But I find black perfect for Spring – the weather’s not too hot, not too cold, and it looks gorgeous against the bright colors of young plants and flowers. Hooray for Spring!
