Loving Life after 50


So maybe you are noticing a little strain in the smile today, well, let’s just say AWKWARD… ran outside in the -35 windchill weather with camera and tripod in hand to take some pictures, to realize the entire neightbourhood was outside. Its Tuesday, garbage day so they were all hauling recycling and composting to the curb and there I was in all my glory. So not only do I love taking my own picture but I must be a lunatic is what they are all thinking I am sure. Do you ever do that, as confident as I am about blogging and taking my own picture I still do not like an audience. Why is that??? I do not mind everyone seeing the pictures I have taken but I do not want you to watch me take them, how weird.

so being the little chicken I am I snapped like two pictures and ran back into the house. At least I was kind of dressed for the weather right. I saw this sweater at Banana Republic (similar) before Christmas but promised myself I would wait till I hit the outlets after Christmas,  sure glad I did at a 50% off the lowest price sale.  10.00 but I wish I had gotten the medium so it was a longer looser fit.  Wearing my Rue 21 Jacket (similar)and a pair of Tweed Calvin Klein Pants (old).  Shoe Dazzle leather booties and the necklace is a Vanheusen find ( and the links match the links on my boots perfectly, total accident that was)

Peeked outside and the neighbours were all finished their chores so back out for a few pictures, seriously the light outside is so much better ( but I also thought it was important to show you the indoor pictures, notice anything??? yep no decorations)

last week the weatherman promised that we were only going to experience the awful temperatures for a few days and then it would get a little warmer than seasonal, well guess what THEY LIED, so this is me walking away from the winter in Ottawa ( OK maybe not till February but I really am ready to walk away. Don’t forget tomorrow is A Labour of Fashion Link up on the blog so please come visit.

walking away from winter at least in my head

  • This is such an elegant outfit Lindas. I love that you still did a little print-mixing with the accessories.

    P.S. I did mention/promote the link-up on my posts yesterday and today. 😉

  • loving you boots. I told my neighbor that I'm a blogger. So if they see me taking pictures that's why

    • LOL I finally did tell them but I am sure they all think I am a tad crazy, it was seriously -35 with the windchill

  • I'm a tripod photographer myself, but I am way too embarrassed to take pictures in public. So silly, I know, but I can't help it. I take all of mine on the farm, safe from prying eyes. I wish I could be more like you and take them in front of other people!
    Thanks for linking up, see you tomorrow!

  • Great outfit ! You look fabulous . Love the boots 🙂 x

  • I needed something to laugh about today and this post did just that, probably becuase I can so relate. Although I don't take my own photo's I still have a difficult time when ever there's an audience around (why is that?). Love this look, especially those awesome booties

  • Loving those shoes and the fact that you actually attempted pics outside. You are amazing!
