Baby, I’m a Star (Sweater)!

Star sweaters have been really in this year, but I haven’t been totally sold on all the little stars all over the sweater, but this great big star totally has me!! I love the fit of the sweater. The material is soft and a little better made than some of the other sweaters I’ve gotten through Amazon.  I’ll definitely be keeping this one and wearing it often!!

This also comes in a really cute heart pattern. It would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!!

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!

Gray Leopard Print Sweater

It’s New Year’s Eve and we are headed to the casino for a fun-filled week.  Tonight we will go to a party, then to the ZZ Top Concert.  Tomorrow, we get to go to a special brunch with my sister-in-law.  I’m sure we will find some time to gamble and play slots around that busy schedule. We want to start the year off winning!! (Don’t we all!!)

I already feel like a winner, as I was pleasantly surprised by this gray leopard print sweater.  It fits so perfectly and is a cozy soft sweater material.  I’m planning on wearing this to the casino this weekend, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a staple in my wardrobe!! They have lots of other color options and even some other prints.  I may have to load up on these, because this is the perfect sweater to wear to work or with jeans!  Dress it up or dress it down! I’m wearing a size small.  The price is right, too!! It’s under $20!!

Cheetah Rocks

I love the cheetah shirt that I got from Amazon!! It’s the perfect running around town shirt.  I paired it with a black vest since it was a little cool outside. It’s long enough to wear with leggings and cute with jeans with the front tuck-in.  I am wearing a small and I’m considering getting some of the other color options in this shirt.  There is currently a 15% coupon, but no telling how long that will last!

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″.

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!

Buffalo plaid and Leopard Print

My two favorite prints are buffalo plaid and leopard print!!  I paired them with a buffalo print vest and jeans with leopard print in the holes. (see second picture).  I got them both at my favorite Rockwall boutique, Divas and Darlings!  

Work Coat

I am obsessed with coats.  This Calvin Klein one is super cute and comfortable. It’s a little heavier than a trench coat, but with the same look. This kept me cozy and warm!  I love it on this cold, windy day!!

Wedding fun

We went to a beautiful wedding last night at Chandler’s Gardens in McKinney.  It is a tree farm, as well as wedding venue.  The beautiful trees served as a gorgeous backdrop to get married! I’d never been to a wedding reception in a tent, but it was very beautiful!!

Now that I’ve hit my goal weight, I was worried about fitting into any of my clothes.  Luckily, I found this dress in my closet that fit ok and had sleeves.  My husband had to keep his pants up with a really tight belt.  First world problems, I know!  But good ones to have when you’re over fifty!!
