Winter style

This winter weather’s got me like – meh – so how do you keep up your winter style when the weather’s got you down? I mean really? So much gray lately! We did the photo shoot for this outfit over a week ago. The weather was colder and windier, but sunny. I must say, it is so much easier to function when the sun is shining, even if it’s colder out. I was trying to get myself to get this post out for the past two days and just can’t even do it. No motivation whatsoever when the skies are gray and my back is aching.

Today, however, was less gray in the morning and my back is finally settling down and feeling better after my last chiropractic visit. Most of the problems with my car insurance are taken care of for last month, just trying to figure out what needs to be done for the current month, and also figure out what is covered this month until I get in for an Independent Medical Exam set up by the car insurance company to see if they think I still need to keep going to a chiropractor.

On those awful gray days, it’s hard to get motivated to wear anything but sweatshirts and sweatpants. Then bundle up in a big old warm shapeless coat and walk out the door. Right? Why look cute when the day looks drab and gray? It’s hard. I managed to put jeans on today, but I am wearing a big old sweatshirt to keep warm. And am trying to resist the urge to jump back in bed under my nice warm down comforter and take a long winter’s nap. Like for the rest of winter. Bears have the right idea, I say! Just hibernate the winter away. I wish I could…

On to winter style though! I have some fun new earrings and rose gold tassel necklace I got for Christmas + a fun winter outfit with a nice warm sweater dress and leggings and knee high boots. It’s all about layering to keep you warm. On sunny days in the winter – we look cute. Gray days, zero s*%#’s given…

Blue and gray on a fine fall day

This past weekend this fine fall weather was amazing! Just a bit cool in the mornings and evenings, but perfect the middle of the day. Sunday we stopped at the park on our way home from church and played in the leaves. So much fun! I felt good for two whole days after my round of physical therapy, chiro, acupuncture and massage, and then the pain started creeping back in on the third day. I was jumping and throwing leaves and having fun because I still felt pretty good.

After I got home, I was worried my back would start hurting really bad because of it, but the pain was just creeping slowly back in like it had the last weekend after my round of appointments, so I don’t think I was any worse for the wear after playing in the park. May as well have had fun with those fall leaves while I still could. The rain is coming back again and they are going to be wet and slimy now. Not so much fun to play with any more… Wah, wah, wah. And Monday’s round of appointments didn’t seem to give me as much relief as the ones the end of last week. So, play while you can, I say!

 

Fall fun!
