Loving Life after 50

Take me to Buffalo, or not

I may not be in Buffalo but I am still not happy, minus fourteen with the windchill was not what I wanted to experience today. I know it could be worse, we could have gotten in excess of one foot of snow, but this is still not November. Standing outside without a coat did not last long, so enjoy the solitary picture.  I did snap a few others but apparently I have not mastered the “Model’s” ability to pretend I am in sunshine and warmth, the painful expression on my face was telling.
Why is mother nature playing such a cruel trick on us??? Forecast for next week is fall is back but I will believe it when I see it. I am seriously feeling bad for Buffalo, have you seen that snow.

 Shopping the closet again, three Michael Kors pieces, all purchased at different times.  I found the skirt in Tannersville in October, the blouse in November and then the sweater this September. They all are a perfect match and my favourite colours. Pearls from Forever 21 and Boots from GH Bass ( Shoes were George )

In keeping with the random Wednesday theme I wanted to touch on last weekend at Spark Session,  my first fashion and beauty blog conference and my first meeting with fellow bloggers. The blog world is to funny so many people you stare at thinking hey don’t I know you???? and quite possibly yes you do.. I finally meet two of the bloggers that I have been following and corresponding a bit with. Iva from Falling in Style who was actually leading a fantastic panel on taking your blog further, we have been Instagram buddies for awhile now and of course I have always followed her blog.  Then there was Deborah from Fabulous after 40, funny story I quite literally had just sent Deborah some outfit pictures while I was on the train to Toronto and then we ended up at the same table.  It was great to meet fellow bloggers and we we started strategizing about trying to get an Over 40 get together going,  anyone else in???
