What happened to Spring?

Last weekend it was sunny, pleasant and in the 70’s.  This weekend?  We had howling winds with gusts up to 50+ mph and I awoke to a dusting of snow on the ground and temps in the 30’s!  I really was done with anything resembling winter but I guess Mother Nature told me.  So instead of a nice spring outfit to share with you I had to go back to something to keep me warm in this cold and blustery weather.

The jeans and the boots are the only items that are currently still available.  The jeans are skinny but the spandex and polyester in them let them hug not squeeze your body.  Plus they are high rise which is a great fit for many body types but it’s the boots here that are stand outs.  These Sorel boots are stylish, warm and waterproof.  I can almost go without a sock when wearing them but I usually wear just a crew sock with them.  I used to think Uggs were the warmest winter boots out here but these have them licked.  They are nice and warm, have much more support for your foot and you can get them wet without worry or ugly water lines.

Now dear Spring, please come back!

Two of Rachel Zoe’s Top 10 Fall Must-Haves – LOTD

While reading an article in In Style magazine – Rachel Zoe’s top 10 list – it dawned on me that I had a few of those items already!  No need to go shopping for them (oh darn!) So I put together this look using two items from her must-have list, the over the knee boot and the cape.

A cape will be very good for hiding a tummy after a Thanksgiving meal 😉
