Winter blues

I always associate the color blue with January. Not sure why. Because your lips, fingers and toes turn blue when you’re cold? Who knows? I’m not the only one associating blue with January, so it must be something someone started a long time ago that we have programmed in our little brains.

I thought I’d take some photos in my winter blues in my living room. Mainly because I got to be on set last week and got my hair done up real cute and in my living room because I didn’t have time to do a photo shoot done outdoors. Plus, it was really cold last week.

I was on set again later that week, but since I was on standby for the next day and I got home real late, I had to take the hairdo down and get ready for the next day, just in case. I had a side cinnamon roll Princess Leia hairdo the second day. Ha. So much fun seeing what type of hairdo you’ll get on set…

This hairdo is on day two, I covered it with a scarf and tried to fix up the stray hairs that got out of place as best as I could.

This is a casual every day look, but adding in the hairdo and some pearl earrings makes it classy casual. Throw on some knee high taupe colored wedge boots and you’re ready to run some errands and not look like a total slob doing it. (I confess, most of my errand running days are spent looking a mess in my sweats and a sweatshirt, but it’s all good.)

What are your favorite go-to’s for a casual day look? Do you wear jeans and a t-shirt, or sweatpants and sweatshirts in the winter? Leggings, knee high boots and a long sweater or tunic are another favorite of mine during the cold months.

Metallic Pleats and scallops

Silver and gold metallic heels

Much to my surprise, I got on here to do another blog post and they totally changed the outline so I can’t even figure out what to do. Holy crapoli! I hate it when they do that. I decided to do what anyone should do in my situation, just dive in and attempt to figure it all out as I go. Bear with me. *(I had to get help disabling Gutenberg and returning my blog back to the classic editor layout I’m used to.)

Fuchsia pleated top, black scalloped edge skirt, metallic heels + leather jacket and black gloves

This week, I’ve combined two trends I’ve been loving lately. One, pleats: mostly I’ve been seeing them in skirts, but this top is pretty fun as well. Metallic. Fuchsia. Pleats + bling buttons = a win. In my book.

This skirt is a classic from Ann Taylor Loft a few years ago. I love the embroidery near the bottom and along the  edges. Plus the uneven scalloped edge.

The silvery-gold heels I found at Shop Girl Consignment.

Everything else, I already owned.

Sometimes I like to twirl. This cute little purse is a vintage one and the strap was loose, so at some point the whole thing went flying as the strap came off on one side. Wah. Wah. Wah.

I’m trying to fix it. ^ I couldn’t do it on the fly.

I gave up on the cute little purse. I was just holding it in this photo. Ha. Sometimes fashion falls apart on us. It’s all good.

We also got to watch a heron flying over head and land in a tree nearby. He stayed there the whole time we were taking photos, then flew off just before we left. I missed seeing him fly away as I was probably busy trying to fix my purse. Or hunt for the pin that had been holding one of the straps in place so I could pin in back together. (A good hint that your vintage purse needs fixing is when you see a pin stuck in it to hold the strap on. Ignore that sign at your own peril… Hahaha.)
