Those words describe my mood as well as why I haven’t been posting much lately. I’ve been under the weather a bit as well as having some family issues with my wayward teenage son (please pray for us) and I have been uninspired to dress. Yeah, I said it, I am feeling uninspired! I know that the cold weather months have fashion nirvana for most fashion/style bloggers however Fall and Winter leave me cold in more than just the temperature. Since I absolutely love summer with a passion, I concentrate on building my summer wardrobe into what I want to look like. I spend my little clothing budget on pretty sundresses and sassy sandals only to be smacked in the face by a blast of cool weather when October rolls around. Then I am scrambling to rework my summer apparel into Fall appropriate attire. The funny thing is I do this every year, so it’s not as if I don’t know I need to save my cash for cold weather clothing, I just get carried away by the fabulous offerings of warm weather attire. Now don’t get me wrong, I do like Fall clothing….I love chunky sweaters with jeans tucked into tall boots, I love woolly hats and colorful scarves wrapped around my neck with a pop of color on my hands by way of gloves but nothing will ever persuade me to love the cold, period! I tolerate the cold because of where I happen live but if and when I get the opportunity to live somewhere that it is warm all year long, I will be all over it!
But until then I will accept my fate and attempt to find ways to transition my summer clothes into Fall until I am able to purchase more warm clothing. My outfit below is what I wore on Tuesday. After looking at this picture, I realize I could have accessorized more but I was sick that day and barely made it to work.
Please forgive the background, it was the end of the day and I had to work with what I had.
