10 Jan Turning Heads Linkup-First Snow Day: Dressing for The Weather-
Hope you had a great weekend! I met with my sister in Charlotte, and we enjoyed lunch at “Corkbuzz” a modern restaurant with an extensive wine list. Why do my eyes always go to the most expensive glass or bottle? Mmm. Well, I enjoyed a glass of a French Red and carefully sipped as to enjoy it. The lunch was delicious and something I would try and make at home, with a piece of thick pita bread, a yogurt lemon sauce and grilled vegetables: beets, brussel sprouts, squash, mushrooms, my kind of meal! This is something I could actually make! ( hubby is more the cook in the family). Anyhow, I am back to shopping my closet, as I will be doing throughout the next several months.
Then we were told by the forecast there may be 4-8 inches of snow by Sunday! I remember the first flake here like it was yesterday! I was teaching kindergarten and got such a kick out of the kids running to the window, wondering what they were seeing. Well, I just have 2 pups here now, and it was very amusing. Truffles, who is afraid of many things, didn’t quite know what to do with the white powdery stuff, and Gibson, the typical boy pup, was galloping around and thought it was time to make a break for the neighbor’s house where he could eat a few bites of the frozen cat food. He’s a bit mischevious!
Anyhow, snowy antics aside, I decided to put wear a more “wintery” outfit today. This outfit is a mix of several of my favorite textures. This pale pink lace button down I bought a few years ago in Ann Taylor is a staple in my wardrobe. I layered it with a cashmere burgundy floral cardigan, mixing pink and burgundy. Rose gold was my metal of choice in my necklace and watch. I paired this with a pair of faux leather chocolate brown leggings and burgundy textured booties. I decided upon my camel wool coat from Chadwicks to add additional warmth and color. It has been a mild winter here in Charlotte, but today was pretty darn cold! It was time to take out those pants!
Do you have a formula for dressing in the winter? Tell me about it!
Keep warm and fashionable,
