Crushing on Color

Hello friends and happy Thursday! I love Thursday because it’s right next to Friday and I know I’ve worked really hard and the weekend is my reward! Yay! Hubs gave me an update to our retirement plan this week: work 10 more years and then we can retire-??? 🙁 gosh…only ten huh? 😂 but I think to myself, I just have to get through it one week at a time 😊 Anyway back to more fun subjects; I’ve got so much satisfaction shopping my closet that I continued with this fun look! My raspberry suede look pants, raspberry hat, and…

Dressing with Plaid

Hello friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend (now that the last minutes are ticking away LOL) I visited with two of my grandkids that live farther away so it was a great weekend getaway so to speak ❤️ I want to share my love for these green/purple/black plaid pants I got on clearance…

Play That Sweater Again

Hey friends! I think I’m finally getting the hang of 2019; it’s taken a couple weeks but I might be back to myself. Two weeks of three day work is nice but the added burden of completing 5 days of work in 3 (two weeks in a row) is exhausting. How do you adjust to…

2019 Doesn’t Like Me

Happy New Year friends! Seriously this is what I thought last week! (I have this thing against odd numbers!) but seriously I experienced some unexpected difficulties at work which hijacked my whole week of blogging and life as a hopeful-positive person. Life is hard sometimes but then I just have to keep going right?? So…

More of the stuff I Love

Hello Friends and happy Friday! It’s been a three day work week for me and boy has it been hard. Who knew a three day week would be so difficult. I guess it’s hard to have four days off and then boom, be back in the grind….it’s an adjustment right?? So I thought I would continue (on some posts) of the same closet shopping I’ve been doing for the past month. I am enjoying discovering new ways to wear the old stuff I love and I hope you enjoy it too! Today I wore a denim look top by Target…

Inspiration Outfit

Hello Friends and happy Monday! I normally don’t like Mondays, I mean they come every week and I really should make peace with them but ew, I would just rather not have Monday part of my lineup. I know that’s unreasonable and that would mean Tuesday would be the same as Monday now is, but…

More Closet Shopping!

Hello friends! How are you all today? I hope you are staying warm! It was 16 degrees here yesterday! Brrrrrrrr….. I discovered more ways to shop my closet-actually close to the same outfit but for two events. One is a Sunday outfit and the other I wore to work. Sunday I wore my blue/cream striped…

Thrifting to be Thankful

Hello Friends! Wow I hope everyone is staying warm! We had a huge snowstorm last night into today and there is about 8 inches of wet cold snow out there. Be safe too! I’m continuing my thankful thrifting/shopping my closet today! This will be a regular feature until after Christmas. I hope you enjoy 🙂…

Closet Creativity

Hello friends! And welcome to another installment of my thriftiness/thankfulness marathon labeled as closet creativity! I hope my efforts to shop my closet help you think of ways you can also do the same! Today I’m sharing a new (yet old) outfit I created from my closet and I really had some fun! First I…

Shopping my closet for Pink

Hello Friends! I thought I would start out the week right by sharing a recent shopping trip to my own closet! I have a pink pleated skirt (Asos) a pink sweater (H&M) both from last year and I love pink! I got some inspiration from my friend @trinagrand to wear all one color as a…
