Yes, I will be the first to admit that my pictures for this week pale in comparison to my sisters’ awesome ones, but sometimes circumstances beyond your control happen (back spasms, kidney stones, no daylight savings time), and you just have to make do with what you have, and when you do, this is what you get! Lol!
With that being said, I must tell you that this little shawl cardigan from the Lou & Grey line at Ann Taylor Loft (Currently 40% off!!!) is super soft & warm & comfy. Kind of like your old bathrobe but much better looking. I bought this cream colored cardigan to wear with one specific top (not pictured), and I soon discovered it would go with so much more than I ever imagined. Now ya’ll know it has been colder than a hair on a polar bear’s ass this winter, and I hate wearing those Michelin man coats every time I step out of the house. This cardigan has been the perfect alternative. You can dress it up or down like I did when I paired it with a flowy pink tank ( similar here) my favorite Luckyjeans & some kick arse booties/boots. Don’t you just love the braiding on these booties?!?! That’s the first thing that caught my eye when I saw them in the store. That & the warm rich color. They’re from Antelope, a brand I was not familiar with, but I can testify there will be more in my future! Can I get an Amen sistahs?!? They are just as comfortable as they are stylish. You know you have a good boot when they only get better looking with time & use. Now if you prefer a tall boot to a short boot then these Frye boots are THE BEST!! Yes, they may cost a little more, but they are so worth it, because they are a classic boot that will last FOREVER!! And the real leather smells soooo good! They should bottle that crap. Also, if you’re smart & you keep your eyes peeled to the Frye site, you just might be able to get them at 40-50% off, and sometimes they throw in free shipping to boot (get it? Oh I do crack myself up.).
Now may I draw your attention to these beautiful brass earrings from one of my all time favorite stores, Carlisle & Linny in Hillsborough, NC. I love this little store because it is crammed full of all kinds of unique & one of a kind cool vintage jewelry. When you buy something at Carlisle & Linny, you won’t see yourself on every other person on the street. Go check them out! Well worth the drive!
Did y’all get snow last week? We didn’t! Well, technically we did if you want to call a teaspoonful a snow storm. ☹️☹️☹️ Do you know the real reason why everybody around us got a butt load of snow & good ole Clayton NC did not?!?! Because I got new snow boots for winter that’s why!! That’s right I jinxed us. I knew if I got new boots it was a guarantee that we would have zero snow accumulation. So, this may be the only time you’ll see my new red plaid snow boots from LL Bean. Cute though, right? Until next winter LL Bean cute red plaid snow boots. 😢😢😢❄️❄️❄️
