Super soft chenille sweater

This chenille sweater, you guys. So soft. I walked by it on a clearance rack at Charlotte Russe, it looked soft, so I reached out and touched it. Or the pink version of this sweater. I immediately picked it up.Then traded it for the blue when I realized I already have a soft pink sweater.  It was an additional 40% of the clearance price, so I got it for a little over $7. Score! I love getting a good deal on anything. Clearance racks are my jam!

This is not the first time I’ve walked by something made from a super soft material and immediately knew I had to have it. If it looks soft, I have to feel the softness. If it’s on someone I may even ask if I can touch it. Can’t. Resist. Softness. My poor soft kitties know this. They see me coming and run. Well, maybe not the bigger of the two kitties, she’s too lazy to run, but the other one does. They are softness personified.

Does anyone else do this with things that look soft? Or am I the only one? I can’t be the only one. Somebody out there also reaches out to touch soft looking things. I just know it.

It has been super cold this week, and for some reason, we ended up by the river in Troutdale taking these photos. Even colder there with the wind whipping down the river. I am so ready for winter to be over. Just say no to snow from now on out! March starts tomorrow and I’m asking the snow to please go away now. Spring is almost here. The time for snow is passing. Move along already.

Since this chenille sweater is on clearance, I’ve linked up a couple more that look just like it below.

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.
