Gray Beret

I am wearing my new gray beret that I purchased from Aliexpress. This beret is a nice quality, and on the softer side.  I am sill slowly, but surely collecting then in lots of colors.  I would also like a darker gray one.  I am currently waiting to receive a white one with pearls, and a beautiful, light green one.

The skirt is one I bought lately from Goodwill, and the black wool jacket is made by Talbot's, and one that I bought from Goodwill last year.  It's the perfect jacket, and I have been wearing it a lot alreay this fall and winter season.

The necklace and earrings are something I bought just last week from my favorite place to buy jewelry, Lowemart.

Paisley Pants

Happy weekend!

I am wearing a necklace I just bought this week from the Goodwill in South Hill, Virginia.  I love the natural, fall colors of the stones!  I thought it matched very well with the paisley pants I am wearing.  

Yet again, I am wearing my new Shein sweater.  It really does go with so many things! The sweater came with a matching skirt.

Burgundy Jacket

The colors in this outfit would be perfect for fall, but I think they also work well in winter.  The jacket is one I bought in the L.A. fashion district.  The print top is one I bought from a thrift store several years ago.

The pants are ones I got in a $5 bag sale at Goodwill a few weeks ago.  They were only about 25 cents!  I like the dark navy blue color.  I think I will be wearing them a lot.  I also like the high waist.

Houndstooth Leggings

I am enjoying getting out, in spite of temps in the 40's, it's not so bad.  It rained this evening, but the day started out nice and sunny. 
I had another fun day shopping with my family.

I am wearing my over-the-knee boots I bought at Goodwill while in Ashville, NC last month.  I really like them except for the fact the heels are so tall!  I prefer to wear flats most of the time, unless they are wedges.  And usually wedges are sandals, so most of the time it's only summer when I wear them.

Orange Turban

For today's post I decided to share these photos from last summer.
Hard to believe it gets that warm when we are in the dead of winter right now!

I went with all kinds of shades of orange for this OOTD.  Even the sunglasses are orange!  Color is usually more muted in my winter wardrobe.  It just seems too cold for brights like orange these days.

This sweater skirt is great because it goes so well with so many other items in my wardrobe.  I will probably be wearing this a lot, right up until it becomes too warm in the spring.

The sweater I am wearing is one I bought from Goodwill a few days ago.  I love how soft it is!

Blue Sleep Set

The electricity went off this morning, and stayed off until around 3 or 4 p.m.  It was a pretty cold and unfun day until we got our heat back!

For today's post I am sharing some photos from warmer days...modeling a Ekouaer sleep set from Amazon.

Beige Striped Sweater

It's had been snowing here in southern Virginia today.  I would rather there be no snow, but we might as well enjoy it!

I am wearing one of the berets I bought from Aliexpress, and a sweater from Goodwill.  I think the sweater goes very well with the Walmart leggings.  The cowboy boots are also from Goodwill. I love the beige color!  It's so unique for cowboy boots!

Black and White Sweater Skirt

I can't belive january is almost half over already!  

Pretty soon it will be time for Vaughan and I to celebrate our "meeting anniversary" on the 25th.  It's nice to have something else to look forward to in January, in case of the post holiday blues.

Do you have any events planned for this month?

Right now, we are waiting to see how much snow we are going to be getting in the area this weekend.  Hopefully not much!  At least this time around, we actually bought a snow shovel!  The last snow, we didn't have one so we made it a point to buy one before it snowed again.  

My dad went out shopping today and said shelves were empty in the stores.  We luckily have plenty in our pantry and freezer, so we are going to be okay for a while, anyway!

Long Black Faux Fur Coat

I wore this coat on our trip to Ashville for Christmas.  I have another one just like it, but it is one I used for years so it's not in as good of shape.

The stone wall behind me is part of the Crown Plaza.  That was a very nice place to stay!  We had a nice tme there.

The beret I am wearing is from Aliexpress.  I was so happy it came just in time for our trip to see the Biltmore!  The beret comes in a rainbow of colors, and I received several compliments on it!

Shein Beige Sweater and Skirt Set

I just love this sweater set from Shein!  The neutral color is great because I can wear each item separately with different colors, tops, and bottoms I already own.  
I had been looking for a nice, beige sweater-type skirt, so I was thrilled when I came across this set on the Shein website!

The knit is so thick, and comfortable, and it really does feel like great quality.  The fabric says it is acrylic, but it feels amazingly like cotton.  I am very happy with the feel, regardless.   This is one of the top items I have received from Shein, in my opinion.

I am wearing a size medium, and the fit of both the top and bottom is pretty much perfect.  My waist is about 26 inches, so if you are much larger than that, you may find the medium to be a little uncomfortable.

Leopard Pants

It was a very pretty and mild day here in southern Virginia.  Its going to be a lot colder tomorrow, though!

Are you looking forward to spring if you are in the same season?  I am not sure.  With warmer weather, there also comes the humidity, and bugs here in Virginia.  I am thinking I may actually be liking the colder weather, better!  At least while living in this state!

Green Velvet Wrap Dress

For today's post, I am wearing my new velvet dress from Shein.  I just love the rich, gorgeous green color!  This will be perfect to wear this St. Patrick's Day!
 It would also be very pretty to wear next Christmas...I could add some red and white accessories to go all out with the holiday colors!

I am wearing a size small, and the fit it perfect for me.  The dress is a true wrap dress, and the fabric feels nice, and thick.  The quality of this dress is great!  I am so happy with it!  I love that is can be dresssed up, or down.  This would look just as great with boots, and a nice jacket, or heels for date night.

Black and White Plaid Jacket

This is one of the outfits I wore on our last day at the Biltmore.  I pretty much wore my flats the whole time.  I wanted to bw comfortable for any walking we would end up doing.  

The Christmas tree behind me is one that was just outside of the Village Hotel.  It was a perfect place to stop and take a few photos!

Vaughan wore a coat my mother bought him last year.  We bought new buttons for it online, and made the coat into a triple-breasted one.  I think it turned out great!

Initial Strapless Dress

I hope 2019 have been going great for everyone!  So far, I have just been spending time at home. I am currently running a deep scan on my photo recovery software to hopefully recover photos that I took Christmas day.  Fingers crossed, I will get everything back!

For today's post, I am wearing my new, green dress from Initial.

The fabric of this dress is thicker than most, making it possible to wear for every season.  I just added a sweater, and hose, and it was appropriate for some of the warmer days we have been having.  Because of the white details, I decided to go with my off-white sweater, and a necklace to match.

This dress comes in seven other colors, and sizes XS to XXL.   I am wearing a size small, and the first is perfect for me.  There is plenty of room in the hip area, and the bust area is of course, very stretchy.  That is one of the benefits of this style of dress.

Shein 2019 Wishlist

I am sharing a few of the new arrival items that are on my first 2019 Shein wishlist!  If you do any shopping, be sure to use my special code: Q1libertad15 for an extra 15% off any purchase, available: Jan 1st -March 31th!


I am going to start off with this statement jumpsuit.  I just adore this fringe, and the shade of pink.  I think this would be a really hot look for Valentine's Day!  I really want this for a salsa dancing date!
The movement would be so fantastic!

https://us.shein.com/Joyfunear-Open-Back-Tiered-Fringe-Patched-Cami-Jumpsuit-p-662496-cat-1860.html


These earrings are such a great deal at only $3!  My favorite part is the colorful rectangle.  Because of all the color, these would match well with so many things in my wardrobe. I can see wearing these on a summer vacation to somewhere nice and warm!

https://us.shein.com/Triangle-Detail-Marble-Pattern-Drop-Earrings-1pair-p-662687-cat-1757.html

I particularly love the color, size and shape of this leopard print.  Not all leopard prints look great, but this is one of my favorites.  I also love the shape of the dress.  It would be perfect for retro pin-up modeling, but also can be worn for a modern look.  It's a classic style that will look great for years to come.

https://us.shein.com/50s-Leopard-Print-Zip-Belted-Dress-p-663889-cat-1727.html

Back to summer styles... How adorable are all the ruffles on this top and skirt set?  I love sets like this, because the pieces look great together, or worn with other items already in your wardrobe.
This is another item I can see salsa dancing in!

https://us.shein.com/Joyfunear-Flounce-Sleeve-Knot-Bardot-Top-&-Tiered-Layered-Skirt-Set-p-662379-cat-1780.html

Now for another pair of earrings...and these are just $2!  I love the bold, black and white combination.  These will go with so many different looks.  But, they also come in several other colors, and at this price, you can afford them all!

https://us.shein.com/Marble-Pattern-Open-Square-Drop-Earrings-p-612368-cat-1757.html


Last but not least, this adorable pink flamingo swimsuit!  As some of you may now, I have a "tiki bar" and it has lots of pink flamingos as decor around the room.  I love pink flamingos, so I can see wearing this swimsuit to the Florida for vacation!

Sequin Tank Top

Happy New Year!

The first day of the year started off well here in southern Virginia.  It was a very mild day, with a high near 70 degrees!  I hope we have more weather like this!

How was your first day of 2019?
