Loving Life after 50

Black and White and Snow all over

stripes and plaid
March 3 and it came in like a big white snowy Lion. Actually it did not come in that badly. Sunday was a beautiful sunny day, so nice we actually went out for a walk to the grocer store, just maybe this will be the end of winter or so I thought… Monday started out well sun was shining and then bham a snow squall, off and on all day. No major accumulation and warmer temps but still more snow.  Frigid temps or warm temps with snow, NOT A FAIR TRADE OFF if anyone up there is listening to me..

On another note how about those pants??? Friday I had the day off, thought I would check Target out… seriously not really great sales yet but I picked up a few things ( including some slip on steel toes, and man do I want some of those dress racks, I will keep watching). On a serious note I did pick up a strapless bra for under $5.00 and now you are totally confused right, bra pants.., ok getting there I promise. I figured on Saturday I would check out the other Target to see if I could get a black strapless, well a few hundred later ( and no black Bra) I was finished shopping.  I managed to finally find the BAR CART and ice bucket and a few other pieces and of course these pants.  Not the greatest sale price (shame on the people in charge of the sell off) but I really liked them so….  Why do companies who are going bust raise their prices??? I bought my plaid Merona suit last fall and the pants were 15.00, so why now are the back to 29.99 with 25% off, I seriously have to question corporate logic at times.

I seriously believe it is not possible for me to wear one pattern anymore, as soon as I got these pants home I kept thinking this would totally work with my Old Navy Turtleneck ( and oh yeah maybe the new necklace I found at H & M Friday, slight shopping addict here) and the plaid gloves and I am loving this outfit. I threw my Banana Republic Wool moto jacket over top for the rule of three and then a great pair of boots ( F21). Bonus today I realized I actually am in Black and White so finally playing by the rules on Trend Spin Linkup

and now as you are all reading this I am winging my way back to Yellowknife for an unexpected set of meetings ( and praying this time I get to see the Northern Lights, and I am packing the tripod to try and get some decent pictures.)
