Color Block Sweater 2

This is the second color block sweater I got from Amazon.  I was expecting not to like this much, because I don’t love over sized sweaters on me, but the length of this sweater makes up for that.  The sweater material is so soft.  I don’t think it’s going to be very warm, so it will be best on a cool day.   I love the colors on this one.  The light blue paired with the orange is really striking together!  I will definitely get my money’s worth out of this one!!

Color Block Sweater

I’m a fan of the color block sweaters! I’ve been eyeing them, trying to figure out what color options I thought were the best for me.  I finally decided on the blues.  This one is extra cute because it has bell sleeves!  The sweater material is soft and loose feeling.  I ordered a small and it fit true to size. It’s meant to be oversized.  This is a fun sweater that you can dress up or dress down. It made for a great opportunity to wear my over the knees boots!

This is the first group of photos I took using my new selfie lighting ring and tripod! It was really easy to use!

New Year’s Eve

I got another sparkly tank top as an option for New Year’s Eve.  I like the way this fits a lot, but I might be too cold in this, even in the casino.  The back of this is just plain black, so if I wear it with a sweater or something, it could work. I got the small in this shirt.  It also comes in other color options.

I also got these faux leather leggings, but I don’t think I would pair these two together other than to just try it on.  The leggings feel really strange, like plastic or something.  They are a little tight, but will probably stretch if I wear them. They hide all the bad stuff, so that’s a bonus to these leggings!!   I’ll be set if someone has a Grease Party! Lol!  I got the medium in the leggings.

I’m leaning towards the leggings with my over the shoulder sparkly shirt for New Year’s Eve, but I’m going to keep this shirt, because you never know when you’ll need something sparkly!!

Batwings!!!

I’m totally loving the batwing look.  This sweater is so cute. It comes in several color options.  I love the sweater material and will be wearing this every chance I get.  This is a size small.

BTW, the belt I have on in the second picture is pretty awesome, too!  It comes with three more belts, so there are lots of options. It’s a stretchy material in the middle.  I’m only wearing this one since these pants are too big, but it can be worn to help style your outfit, too!  Mine is a sized 26″-32″.

Buffalo plaid

This has been the year of the Buffalo!! Buffalo Plaid that is!!! I had planned on getting an awesome Christmas Card Photo this year, so I bought myself this cute shirt. I bought Alan and the dog cute shirts to match, too.  It was going to be the perfect card photo.  The only problem is that I never got around to taking the picture!  Oh well! There’s always next year!!

Hair dryer brush

I have A LOT of hair and it drives me nuts when I try to get ready.  I can’t let it air dry, because it looks like I have a perm when it dries. It’s not a cute perm; it’s a flat out mess.  I have spent so much time drying my hair, then straightening it.  If I am going out I have to dry, straighten and then curl.  It’s just so time consuming, so I usually just wear it in a ponytail.

On a whim, I bought a hair dryer brush.  I had one before and the bristles were so small that it didn’t work with my thick hair, but I wanted to give it another try.  I’m sure glad I did.  I was able to dry my hair today and didn’t have to straighten it afterwards!  I highly recommend this dryer brush if you have thick curly hair!

Concert Night

Another fun concert night at Choctaw for Alan’s birthday weekend!  Charlie Daniels Band was great! It’s hard to believe he’s 83!! He put on a fun show and engaged with the audience.  Travis Tritt was also on fire!! We had such a great time!!

Alan wore the buffalo plaid shirt that he said made him look like he was wearing a table cloth. We were supposed to be taking Christmas Card photos in it, but we never got around to taking them. I didn’t want to be all matchy matchy at the concert, so I wore my khaki knotted back sweater.

RV Christmas

I got the cutest Christmas decorations for my RV. I’m really happy with how it turned out.  It makes me feel more at home while we are out of town celebrating my husband’s birthday!!

The two pictures are a little close together, but I didn’t want to change the hooks I already have up, since I normally have different pictures up there. Maybe I’ll have to get some more pictures and turn it into a picture wall.  

Ugly Xmas Sweater

Once a year we do an Ugly Christmas Sweater day.  I’ve worn the same ones for the last 30 years or so, so I decided to update my ugly Xmas sweater.  I actually think this one is pretty cute!  I really like the material and it fits true to size. This is a small. I can’t wait to wear it to work!!
