Loving Life after 50

Michael Kors mixed with Leopard and Plaid

 On a positive note when I got up this morning to get ready for work, the sun had risen and I was ready for work early, so I was able to take a  few outfit pictures ( and prayed that they turned out) because when I got home from work there was seriously no day light left and I do not work late, I get off at 4:30 WTH.

Seriously at 4:00 today I looked out the window and it was already starting to get dark… I truly hate that part of “Fall Back” so now in order to keep posting outfit pictures I need to get up and get ready quick if I want outfit pictures or I need to readjust to taking indoor pics…. which means I better start carrying my camera because Ipad pictures just do not seem to be as nice anymore.

For today, I was up early and I was ready on time so I did get some pictures for you. If you follow me on Instagram at all you now that I received my awesome leopard booties from Shoedazzle on Friday so today I decided to shake it up and pair the leopard with some plaid.  This dress was purchased at J Crew two years ago before Buffalo plaid became the hottest ticket around but regardless I still love it.  Really should get to a tailor and get it taken in but sometimes a loose drop waist dress is just the ticket right?  It was also cool enough to get my favourite coat out, is this not the perfect red????

What do you think,  is leopard a neutral, does it actually work with plaid or am I trying to hard??? I think its a perfect match but additional opinions are always welcome.

  Are these not the absolute best??? I could not resist the purchase, they were screaming my name.

 Throw on a bunch of pearls because I don’t now about you but for me plaid screams PEARLS,

  So tried a few indoor shoots but am i right, the quality doesn’t quite measure up….so either I start getting up early or I take the camera to work and try t find a great spot close to the office for a noon hour date…. yet another reason I wished I lived in a far warmer climate with lots of sunshine, winter darkness is not cooperative for a blogger.

Now to make up for the fact I just posted possibly not the greatest pictures and you have stuck with me I am now offering up the chance to win a MK Gift Card, yes really,,,, that MK watch you have been dreaming of is within your grasp.
