Dress The Part

No Snow

yet . . .

the scoop

Bet you can’t guess where we’ve been. Yep, back in the mountains. We spent a few days there and I got lots of pictures. It was cold but not much snow. Hardly any really! I imagine that will change any day now. I am ready for a little of the white stuff actually.

Right now I have a fire starting in the fireplace and am watching three little deer munch on the grass in the back yard. Such a country life feel!

my look

I decided that since my days of dresses in this weather are almost done for this year I better put one on. This dress is a fabulous sweatshirt dress with a hood and a tulip hem. Not really stylish but oh so cozy. I wanted outdoor pictures so I put on a pair of fun winter boots and headed out. This is how you dress in a dress in the mountains! There is something cozy about a snuggly dress to hang around inside when winter is howling outside.

  • By the time you read this post we will be heading down the mountain.

  • I have to start getting the house prepped for Thanksgiving dinner.

  • I haven’t made a turkey for a few yeas so that will be a challenge. And I love a challenge!

  • I am taking back little pine trees from our land to put in my pots on the front porch. I think they will be so cute and bring some of the beautiful pine scent to our home.

Happy new year gang! Welcome to my new blog design. I had so much fun coming up with a new look and I hope you enjoy it. Biggest new thing is the drop down menus at the top with lots of options for navigating.  And then the home page is a one stop spot where you can just scroll down for links to recent posts, about me page, categories such as fashion, lifestyle, health and beauty and you can check out our shopping page and link ups. 

I'm excited for the new year! I am putting my best foot forward along with my happy face and digging into my blogging hobby with gusto. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you stopping by to visit and sharing your thoughts! Thanks so much!

my outfit

This look was created on Christmas eve. We were going out to Starbucks for morning coffee and this is what I came up with. No outside pictures that day because is was -3 degrees. These jean are what I have read will be the "it" jeans this year. Read more about them on WhoWhatWear here. These are ( Lolita Capri Cropped) Lucky brand jeans probably my favorite brand for about 15 years. Only over the last couple of years have I found a brand I like as well, 7 for all Mankind.  These jeans are skinny jeans but I sized up so the leg is wider achieving the straight leg style. These jeans have a higher waste and are cropped.  I got them last spring and love the fit and style. I wore a gray sweater with a v neck, a gray lace racer back bralette, a thin leopard belt and my beloved plaid pumps. To accessorize I carried a red tote. So loved this look!

I linked up my exact jeans (size 4) and sweater (size small), and found similar belt, shoes and bags to check out. This will all be kept on the boutique page for quite a while. Note: This sweater is on sale and is not high quality. I love the fit though and got it in a couple of colors because it is a perfect everyday sweater.
