I found that I couldn't reply to a comment on my own blog.  My reply button just disappeared.  I tried all of the browsers I have on the computer--same story (I'll check the mobile version to see if that works).

Inspiration Monday

Our inspiration from Two Birds today is Rachel Bilson. Love her in the comedy-drama television series "Hart of Dixie" - it's a fish-out-of-water story of a big-city doctor trapped in a small town with an unfamiliar culture.

With this outfit, so far from perfect, Rachel is distorting all of her bodily proportions - increasing her hips and shortening her legs. Sorry...Who wants short legs- even if you are a big TV star?
I like her things separately (especially vest and boots), but not together. So my version of a winter outfit.

I wore
Cords: Gap
Sweater: Zara
Hoodie: American Eagle
Boots: Ralph Lauren
Beanie: H&M
Vest: Xersion (JCPenney)

Inspiration Monday

This week over at Two Birds our inspiration is...who knows? call her Jane Doe.
Love this low key casual and comfy winter look.
I think every women has worn something similar - a huge men's sweater that belonged to her husband, brother or father. Unfortunately, my hubby wears t-shirts all year long and hates long sleeves!  So I put on my own cable knit sweater , but it's not over-sized.

Delayed development

When I was young I wanted to be classically elegant, but right now, when I'm twice as old, I'm happy going with a grungy look.

It's Christmas, pretty baby!

Got some shopping done. Ate chestnuts and cinnamon apple donuts, drank hot apple cider.

sloppy screams laziness

Again with the sweat pants?
What? I'm comfortable.
You know the message you're sending out to the world with these sweat pants? You're telling the world: "I give up. I can't compete in normal society. I'm miserable, so I might as well be comfortable"

Two minutes walk to the neighbor across the street for the Christmas tree.

Inspiration Monday

Today's inspiration over at Two Birds is Olivia Palermo, who wore sleek leather pants with a chunky sweater, dark sunglasses, and an over sized croc print bag. She livened up her mainly dark outfit with some brightly decorated ankle strap heels.
So I tried to do the same - a dark outfit with bright heels.
My shoes proved to be too bright for my taste , more like a crow's feet, but anyway I decided to keep them on. Maybe if the pants were shorter, this look would be better.

I hope you are having a wonderful day and enjoying all the yummy food that goes with Thanksgiving!

I'm wearing a boyfriend jeans, a sweater and a shirt. It seems like a reasonable thing to do when you're wanted to be comfy and still maintain a bit of style.

Inspiration Monday

For this inspiration Monday photo from Two Birds is Sienna Miller.
Her knee-length Burberry leopard-print silk dress could have been in danger of looking a little frumpy, but the actress added a fluffy cream cardigan, which gave here a more boho and weather-appropriate look. Then she polished her outfit with complimentary black tights and black Mary Jane heels. Sienna pulled her hair back into a high bun and brightened up her face with a bright red lipstick.

Today was cold enough for me to use my oldest winter jacket. I made it about fifteen years ago and had been really sick of wearing this jacket for such a long time. I think this "sheep" rested in my closet for the last four years.

it's time for another boots purchase

After a few weeks of internet stalking I finally found two pair of boots. I couldn't decide which one I liked more and losing my mind.

What do you wear when you only have an hour before an unexpected trip to the theater?

Just remix things that you have worn these past two weeks. Do you remember my boxy jacket, rain coat, and dress that I wore for a friend`s birthday party? tights from inspiration Monday, and of course my favorite scarf. These shoes are always on my rack.

We saw the Broadway show "Elf". I loved it! Ho-Ho-Ho! Christmas spirit here!

matte vs sheer tights

You know the rule: DON’T wear sheer tights. It’s not summer, so we shouldn't be seeing your legs.
I heard fashion editors give Katie Holmes a big NO!, but everyone liked Miranda Kerr wearing sheer tights shorts and skirts. What heck are the differences between those two celebrities?.. One of them is being a big style icon?

So this is my version of matte vs sheer tights. Which one do you like more?

Inspiration Monday

Today is Inspiration Monday. I am linking up with Two Birds for this challenge. Today our inspiration is
Miranda Kerr. Her killer off-duty outfits are applauded by countless style blogs for their mix of sex appeal, sportiness, and elegance. A "Glamour" fashion editor said, " this is one of her genius outfit ideas: dress up a denim skirt with a blazer and you need to try it on!"
Personally, I like the first look more than the second one.

But anyway...oops! I don't own a jean skirt but I have some denim shorts. So my outfit looked more like this one.

I wore a jacket with a fur vest instead of a coat.

Yesterday's outfit was for surprise 50th birthday party for our good friend. He just thought he came for a Bible study. He was completely surprised.
Sorry for my slightly stern look in some of the pictures.

You may not be ready for snow, but Mother Nature is

I took these pictures after 3 pm, but in the morning there was much more snow.
