What I Wore Wednesday.....

I have so been looking forward to cooler weather so I can break out some different clothes!  Particularly since last week when Mom and I went out to Kohl's and I scored an awesome pair of brown boots (which were on sale and I had a 30% off coupon on top of that)......

Well, the mornings have been chilly enough,but the afternoons quickly warm up.  I've resorted to blending clothes from one season to the next.  You know - lighter weight top so I don't sweat to death, paired with skinny jeans and boots.  This way, all that sweats is my feet, right?

This is what I wore last night to meet with the ladies in the book club for dinner.

Lightweight 3/4 length shirt, blue & green print,over a cool cami - Apt. 9 from Kohl's
Stretchy skinny jeans - Jennifer Lopez at Kohl's (key word being "stretchy")
Boots - Apt. 9 from Kohl's
Earrings and bracelet - James Avery 
(oh, wait, you can't even see the earrings - in either of these shots - but, trust me, they're pretty!)
Watch - Fossil you see a pattern with Kohl's developing here!  Maybe I should buy some of their stock?

 Okay, so y'all chime in and tell me......

Which "selfie" works best???  Should I take one of those shots where I hold the camera in front of my face (perhaps in an effort to convince everyone I am a serious photographer), or do I go with the camera down lower as I struggle to compose my face while feeling like a dork in front of the mirror????

At any rate, this was comfortable for a casual dinner.  The lighter weight on top seemed to kind of balance out the boots on bottom.  Do you have any tricks to share on balancing the change of seasons in the wardrobe department?  If you do, please share!!!

Keeping it real.....


  1. Cute boots! Iowa has proved to be very frustrating weather-wise. We will have a week with highs in the 50s and 60s, and then this week it's all 70s. I'm constantly back and forth. I went ahead and rotated my fall and winter clothes to the front of my closet in hopes that it will work some magic and settle the weather on one season.

    1. Hey, we would take the 70's, Amber! Before you know it, you will be knee deep in snow.....for about 3 months! I am sure it is going to be a huge adjustment for y'all. So, enjoy these mild days, my dear!

Loving Our New Woven Blinds......

Hey, ya'll!  Labor Day weekend is winding down.....hope yours has been great!!!
Mine was actually pretty busy.  Since Eddie Dale had to work all three days, I decided I would work, too - only I stuck around the house to do my work! 
I decided to go ahead and give the woven bamboo blinds I found at Home Depot a shot.  I've been eyeballing them online for weeks because the cost was only $16.97 each.  I simply hate the plastic 1-inch mini-blinds throughout our house - they are not cottage-y - at all! 
So, I ran out to the local store (their handy dandy website indicated they had thirteen 27"x72" shades in stock) and picked up enough to do the living room.  I really like the roman shade style and the way these filter the light, creating a nice soft ambiance in the room.  Although they are not completely private, they are fine in the living area.  Oh, and did I mention they are only $16.97 a window?!?!?  So reasonable, yet they give me the "look" I've been…

Super Bowl Sunday - What's for Supper!?!?!?

One of our favorite things to do when there's a big game on TV is make up a variety of "finger foods" to snack on during the evening.  Tonight's Super Bowl was no different and we went for some of our favorites - buffalo wings, sausage balls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and, of course, one of our old standbys,  this yummy spinach dip.

It's a tradition to have this creamy dip at least once during the holidays, but we rarely have it during the year.  So, it's a real treat!  It's delicious and rich; and the basic recipe makes a ton - we snack on it for days!  My favorite way to enjoy it - scoop it up with "hint of salt" wheat thins crackers.  Yum yum!!!
Most of you probably have this recipe down by memory.  But, in case you haven't tried it, I'm sharing it below.

Spinach Dip
16 ounce container of sour cream 1 cup mayo 3-4 finely diced green onions 1 small can water chestnuts, diced 1 small package frozen chopped spinach 1 package Knorr vegetable so…

Procrastinating on a Project

Sitting here, listening to the thunder and the pounding rain against the windows and wishing I had made good on my plans to clean out my closet today.

You see, I've been contemplating emptying my closet for months.  And I mean empty it completely!  Then reload with way fewer items.  Some call it a capsule wardrobe - that is a pretty popular term these days.  Others might say it a 'minimalist approach' to dressing.  Either way, it is something that has been wiggling around in my mind for some time. 

And yet, I continue to put the project off.  Why the blazes is that?  It's definitely something I want to do - downsize and simplify my wardrobe! 

The main reason is the sheer size of the project.  It is daunting, to say the least.  Perhaps even overwhelming.  I know it is probably going to take several hours and create a huge mess if I do it properly.  So, I start thinking about the process and begin to lose sight of the end result - which is a simpler wardrobe and less …
