Singing the winter blues

Thursday, February 16, 2017

I'm kind of done with winter...no, I'm REALLY done with winter.
 I just despise being cold.
And then there's the snow...ugh.
So the best way to warm things up is with color!
This gorgeous royal blue fit and flare top is from Covered Perfectly. I love the way it hugs the waistline, but gently flares out to cover the muffin top (exacerbated by winter comfort food like chocolate chip cookies!)
A good wine also helps me endure the cold (hehehe).
I'm actually wearing two pieces from Covered Perfectly. I paired the fit and flare top with their black pencil skirt, which is SOOO comfy (elastic waist!) and fits like a dream. I also love the length as it isn't too short when I sit down.
This gorgeous and very unique Contra necklace is from Megan Auman . For my readers only, take 15% off with code MIDLIFEFASHIONISTA
My ankle boots are by Aquatalia---for comfort and durability they can't be beat. Although I slosh through the snow and slush,  the waterproof suede really holds up!  I bought these boots last year so I can't locate them for you, but check out these AMAZING deals on other Aquatalia styles HERE ($68.80 incredible!!!) HERE  ($50.74!!!!) and HERE (very similar to mine and on sale!). It pays to buy these amazing boots at the end of the season.
So although I'm not a fan of winter, beautiful clothes, bright flowers and wine keep me trudging through (and let's not forget the chocolate chip cookies!).

  1. 2 years ago I scored a beautiful pair of Aquatalia riding boots at the GAP Clearance Center in Cincinnati for only $40. That was when they carried all the Piper Lime items (which I think has since closed) I recently moved to Texas; and one thing i miss most about Cincinnati is that Clearance Center. It is the only one in the United States!
