19 Nov Faux Leather Pleated Skirt, Sable Velvet Blazer and a Pop of Color
Hello Ladies… its almost the weekend! Is this week going fast?
Let’s just say hubby was being “artsy-fartsy” here with the sun behind my head. I suppose one has to experiment from time to time. I just love all of the leaf colors and it was a good day to take pics. I do find that some days I just have a tough time focusing on a task at hand, as I won’t get into it too much, but it has been the second time in 2 months since I have gone out for “fun”. EDS can do that to me sometimes. Anyhow, two of the best things that came out of EDS was Gibson and Truffles my pups. Tell you more about them in the post, but I was in a faux leather skirt mood kind of a day. I have a few in my closet, and this one from Ann Taylor in a chocolate brown really lent itself to styling with some teal tones and soft velvet textures.
Anyhow, I won’t go into more detail, only to say progress is making way, but in regard to my pups, I made my PT laugh the other day, as when the weather gets a chill in the air, and it is cold in the late evening and morning, I LOVE to sleep all cozied up, bundled up with my robe and puppy curled up in a ball next to me. Gibson, my boy, is attached to me a bit more, Truffles a bit with my hubby. So, Truffles was always “top dog ” for 2 years before Gisbon came around. My PT and I were discussing a show she said she saw on 60 minutes about dogs intelligence, emotions, jealousy etc. I told her that Truffles misses her “prime real estate” ( the area right in front of Mommy ( me) where she used to curl up in a ball. Now it is Gibsons! So, the other day, she noticed he wasnt there and made a b-line right for the spot! We have to laugh as they are such characters!
But I have to say, dressing nicely, and having my dogs has certainly helped alot when trying to recover and cope with a chronic condition. They bring unconditional joy to my life, and making an effort to look nice, even if it is us going out for 2 1/2 hours for some wine, makes me feel a bit better too. But illness or not, those of you with pets know what I am talking about!
Nevertheless, I wanted to wear more fall shades today, and I do have a fair amount of fall clothes to spring,but when you come from PA, Pittsburgh, originally there has to be lots of sweaters and layers to keep me warm! So, here in Charlotte, I can get away without wearing a coat yet, in November, but love the pairing of brown tones with teal. It is similar to the colors in our house, we have a room with browns and blues and I always loved the combination. As someone fair skinned, I wanted to wear the teal, close to my face, for added bright color, but pair it with the velvet sable colored cropped jacket
Looking forward to the weekend,
Enjoy the rest of your week!
