How was your weekend? Ours was pretty low key, just doing some things around the house, hanging my dad’s photography and trying to keep up with and get a jump on “spring cleaning”! Sundays I go to the gym and I having just got the “go ahead” to lift weights, seems that I went a bit too “gung ho” the last few times. I truly don’t notice it at the time.. but 2 days later my shoulders are telling me to “cut it out!” Well, I live and learn.I thought it was about time I wore some vibrant red and brought out this cute red cardigan from Banana Republic. I purchased this through Poshmark, which is kind of an on-line thrift store that sells gently used or new items from individuals. (I will be publishing a post on How to shop there soon!) For me, details are important in my clothes and I loved the little chiffon roses and beaded detailing on this sweater. I thought of all of the textures and fabrics I love to wear in the winter, I knew it was time to break out the tweed! I have many tweed items in my closet from blazers to skirts and this black and white tweed flounce skirt has served me well through the years. I decided to pair it with this look and wear a bowed silk white blouse underneath for additional style. My black military jacket , boiled wool with intricate silver buttons, is great for layering as it is not lined and provides just a bit more warmth and style.
My croc textured block heels from Zara are worn here with grey patterned tights to again, play with texture as I love to do. This is more of a casual look for Valentine’s day, and frankly that is pretty much our day. We really don’t celebrate Valentines day other than a giving a lovely card and enjoying some excellent wine and dinner at home.
