You saw this outfit yesterday, but this is what I wore Monday. Hospital gift store kimono, black pants, black top, Kendra Scott half price birthday necklace, and black booties. One of my lovely readers, Nancy, commented on how good hotel and hospital gifts shops can be – also museum gift stores have really unique things. Maybe an idea for Christmas gifts if you happen by one of these.
Tuesday’s outfit was my new Old Navy flannel, long black Walmart cardigan, black leggings, very old Target Frye knock off boots, and faux pearls that were half off last year at a boutique. My hub and I went to a Great Gatsby themed wedding and I wore these with a black dress that looked a little flapper-esque that I’ve had for years.
I managed to do one coat of this Monday night.
I just love my library. These are all recent recommendations from other bloggers.

Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand
I will let you know what I think. I have to start on Winter in Paradise because it’s a 7 day only book.
Remember how I have dark green Matilda Jane consignment pants that were $29 and I just found brown and grey ones for $17 at the same consignment store? Well, I have a confession. I ordered black and black velvet pants brand new. They are $58 dollars each which is more than I typically spend. But, I have been struggling with pants options and feel like all I have is leggings and jeans for winter. My next door neighbor teacher is a man and he keeps telling me his 5 and 7 year old daughters have the same pants! So, yes, maybe I look like a little girl. I just think they are so unique and they are very good quality.
When you have teen boys in the house, it’s very hard to have letter boards or anything spelled out. I have these “BELIEVE” blocks as part of my Christmas decor and it has been changed twice. Right now it is “bile eve” and yesterday it was something about an eel. They think they are so clever!
Hope you have a very happy Wednesday and as always, thanks for reading and sticking with me! Your comments make my day and I’ve really appreciated all of your kind words!
