Dressing to Stay Warm

Hey y’all! How was your weekend?? Ours was pretty low key. It included Netflix, Laundry, my son’s Rec League basketball game and more Netflix. Yee Ha!!! So when Raenette asked me to go see a movie at an actual theater, I jumped all over it!

Now I don’t know about ya’ll, but sometimes I struggle with what to wear when it’s chilly outside. Used to I’d throw on a warm, fuzzy sweater, but now I live in the land of Menopause. This chick CANNOT get stuck in a fuzzy sweater when a hot flash hits out of the blue!! Ya hear me!!! I just CAN’T! So a leather biker’s jacket it is!!!

Jacket// Tee// Scarf// Jeans// Boots//

This sweet ass leather biker jacket from Lucky Brand is a perfect layering piece. It’s heavy enough to keep me toasty, but is lightweight enough to be Menopause Approved. I ordered this jacket in a Small, and really wish I had gone up a size. It fits perfectly with a tee underneath, but is too small to accommodate a sweater. Dang it!!!

This jacket looks great with a flirty little dress, as well as jeans and a tee. I love it with my light wash jeans, booties and snake print scarf. It’s a really simple outfit that looks totally pulled together.

Trying to find something to spend money on!!!

Oooo who doesn’t love a Planet of the Apes Game???

Raenette talked the skin right off his bones! Lol

EEEk I NEED a spiked milkshake STAT!!!!

If you live in the Raleigh area, you have got to check out Alamo Drafthouse!!! It’s a super cool theater that includes a lounge area, alcoholic milk shakes (and cocktails and beer), big cushy reclining chairs, delicious food and assigned seats. You preorder your tickets online, then go straight to your assigned seat when you arrive. A server then comes to your seat to take your order! It’s the BOMB!!! It makes it pretty tough to go back to a plain ole theater, that’s for sure.

The lobby area has a wide variety of albums/vinyl, DVDs, and games for purchase. Everywhere you turn there’s something fun to check out, including vintage movie posters and memorabilia. So cool!

One more plug. If you haven’t seen “The Green Book” I recommend that you do! It did not disappoint. It was enlightening, funny, infuriating, and touching. What more could you ask for?? I just loved it!!

So to review, you’ve just got to

1. Get yourself a leather Biker jacket

2. Check out Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

3. Go see “The Green Book”.

Now go make it happen!! Lol

Don’t forget to come back Wednesday to see what Anjanette’s wearing to stay toasty warm.
