It’s June but I’m not sure Mother Nature got the memo

It’s June but the last two days have been in the low 60s and upper 50s, Wisconsin weather gotta love it!  The cool air, rain drizzle, and fog over the lake puts me in a fall frame of mind.  I start thinking about warm chunky cable knit sweaters, leggings, boots, hot drinks, a good book, and a relaxing place to sit.

Comfy rain clothes


Sweater, Leggings, Boots, Bag

This outfit looks so comfy but I hope I don’t need to bother with heavy clothing for a couple of months.  Summer where are you??

Outfit – After Christmas shopping

The holidays are wonderful to spend with family.  I personally like to go shopping the day after christmas or Boxing day in some countries.  The stores all have sales to get consumers to spend their gift cards and holiday cash.  They are also trying to move out their holiday and winter items so that spring items can have room.  Spring, ya if we get a proper winter this year spring weather won’t be here for another 4+ months.  Shopping can be crazy but usually not as bad as black friday because most people this year have work on Wednesday.  I, unlucky and lucky, do not have to work this week due to holiday shut down, so off the mall I will go.  I feel that after 3 days of christmas’, food, and such a comfy and warm outfit will be fitting.

Outfit After Christmas

Dress | Coat | Tights | Boots | Headband | Purse

The dress looks warm, 30% wool, along with the coat and tights will keep the chilly air away while walking in between the stores.

Merry Christmas!!!


Outfit – Christmas day

Christmas day,  the day that we get together with our family and spend time together.  For me, it can sometimes involve going to about 4 houses in one day.  Lucky, this year I only have on house a day for 3 days.  Having in-laws and divorced parents makes holidays interesting.  This outfit will work great if your going to someone else’s house or spending the holiday at home with your family.

Outfit – Thanksgiving

Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US.  A day that we spend with family and friends filling or over filling our bellies with food and watching football. Some people then try to get a quick nap in before going out black friday shopping

For me it is usually a day of cooking a meal for my husband, mom, and step-dad.  After dinner we take a walk or just relax.  It is a great day to spend with those you care about and be thankful for what you have.  That’s why I think the whole shopping early on Thursday or early (midnight) on Friday really changes the way some people view this holiday.  More of that on another post.  Here are the outfits.

The first outfit could be if you are visiting family or friends.  A cosy yet cute outfit.

Coat | Sweater | Leggings | Boots | Earrings | Bag

This is a two-part outfit.  First a set of ‘protective’ wear for the kitchen:

Apron | Oven mitt | Gloves

Then a set of beautiful clothes for dinner as hostess:

Dress | Sweater | Tights | Earrings | Indoor Shoes

*Indoor shoes, in my upper apartment the front door is downstairs, it is much easier to keep a clean floor if outdoor shoes are removed at the bottom of the stairs.  Plus, at this time of year outside can be very wet and frozen.

At the end of the long day and a filling dinner you might just want to jump into some comfy pajamas.  Here is a cute pair to wear at home or have in your bag so you can change if you are spending the night a family or friends house.


I hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving on Thursday.  Remember be thankful for what you have!

Outfit – Country house in Belgium

This is based off of an international house in the NY Times.  I send a link to the article with the follow pictures described:

“Not a warmer place weather wise, but can’t you picture yourself walking around the house grounds with knee-high boots, skinny jeans, an over-sized sweater and a hot cup of coffee playing with a dog (likes the ones in the 1st picture)?  Well I can :)”

Here is the link to the article House Hunting in Belgium.

The outfit is meant to be cozy and nice for a fall day.  The sweater is completely what I was thinking but it was what I could find.  The boots, I’m thinking about getting those.
