Mixing Patterns How To

Hello friends and happy weekend! It’s been a few days since I posted; I have no excuse for myself! Lol! (I will do better I promise)! I thought I would share how I mix patterns! Here I’m wearing a striped burgundy blouse and a leopard vest. Some people in the past might not think it…

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…

Grateful Streak Continues…..

Hello Friends! If you’re new to reading my blog, I’ve dedicated my last three or so weeks to shopping my closet instead of new wardrobe items to focus on gratitude before Christmas.

Dingy Inversion Day

Hey Friends! Happy almost hump day (I gotta get myself through the week somehow right??) Friends it’s so cold here in Utah and the inversion has us trapped in a soupy, foggy, smoggy mess! I bet it’s 40 degrees at the ski resorts, up above the goop. So today my clothing required a little bit…

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…
