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…

Holiday style on a blustery day

Has it ever gotten windy and blustery in Oregon lately. Whew! We went outside yesterday for a photo shoot and almost got blown away. So much for styling my hair before we went… The wind chill factor was making it several degrees colder than it actually was outside, so we didn’t last long before skedaddling back indoors where we finished the photo shoot in front of the Christmas tree with two fluffy kitties. One of whom seemed to be sitting just far enough away that we never got good photos of her. But the lazy fat cat, Bathsheba – otherwise known as Sheba – cooperated somewhat for some photos.

Not sure how all the fashion bloggers keep going all winter… More indoor photo shoots? Move to a warmer climate? I must know your secrets to winter fashion photo shoots! Hahaha.

Just know that the jacket is faux fur, the cat fur on my cat and satin skirt is real. Which the cats like to shed all over the place so I can be fashionably furry in an animal friendly way. Le sigh. I should appreciate that fact more than I do…
