Loving Life after 50

A Labour of Passion 5

Lets start out with #bloggerwoes, I totally loved this picture with the exception of the snowflake on my nose…. but apparently I am not talented enough to edit out the snowflake without making me look like cirano de bergerak. Sadly the scarf looked great, the hair was good the pose was even ok but for that large white dot in the middle of my face, anyone else wonder why those beautiful snowflakes have to look like white blobs in your pictures??? I think my next blogger course should be photoshop ( oh wait maybe I need that program first)

Old Navy Vest, Plaid blanket scarf and Shoe dazzle OTK wine boots

I may have gone a bit shoe crazy earlier in January and ordered two pairs of shoes and a pair of boots from Shoe Dazzle ( not bad unless you remember when in Charlotte I purchased three pairs of shoes). So my tally was 4 pairs heels, 1 pair brogues/oxfords and one pair of amazing boots and to date I have only showcased the Black and Gold captoes I purchased.  Well today it is all about the boots, are these not the prettiest colour???

I am not sure why but every morning that I look at this skirt I believe it is Navy, and then I get dressed and it is usually not till the drive home that I really look and state I could have sworn this was blue not black, and then Kent says “you say that every time”. Maybe because I always wear it with blue… not sure  but sure does not look blue in these pictures does it.  Love the floral pattern and the chiffon like material, thanks Old Navy for making amazing skirts.

  • Another great plaid outfit! Love your smile.

  • I always love your mixture of prints, colors, patterns and more. This outfit turned out so cute. Dying over the boots and gloves. You can send them to me, any day. =)

    Anjd thanks so very much for your latest lovely comments and your advise. I have loved your layouts and blog desings so I will definitely contact Ash via your reccomendation.

    Happy Thursday My Friend!

    P.S. I will link up another post later today and mention your lovely new link-up. I hope it grows just as large and wonderful as your personality!

  • I just love all of the beautiful puffy snow that is falling in these pics! It looks like your boots and gloves match, and that red puffer and the scarf go beautifully with the navy and skirt!

  • OMG Snow! How cute is that! Although it looks lovely I'm glad it's you and not me. I just don't do cold!

  • Those are some damn awesome boots my friend! And I agree, falling snow looks pretty in outfit shots unless it's right in front of your face or it looks like dandruff on a black shirt…ha!

  • Love your new boots! I have no idea how to use photoshop either and too lazy to learn it. I didn't even notice the snow flake until you mentioned it.

  • Thanks for inviting me to link up! It's nice to finally see your blog since I've been following you in IG for a few months. There's something about the dark of winter that makes getting dressed in the morning just a tad more difficult when trying to decipher black and navy. My mom has several of the same pairs of shoes in both colors and sometimes wore one of each without realizing it!

  • Love the scarf & the necklace hun!!!

  • Super a cute winter outfit! Love your patterns mix. Boots are awesome!
