I've had this trench coat for about 5yrs and it's from Bebe. This is the second time that I wore this trench coat as a dress, it's a very light pink color and I pared it with a wide beige belt, a beige shawl, beige purse and some pink flats. It looks great with a pair of heels or flats as I've worn them with in this post. My camera is 5yrs old and my settings are very limited so the colors just won't show as vibrant as I want them to. I have a Canon T3i and I hear they're up to a T6 or T8 by now. I actually have a new one on my Xmas wish list but I'm not sure I want to splurge right now. We have an upcoming ski trip planned in January during the MLK that I need to prepare for now.

It rained today so I wasn't going to go out of the house at all and take photos unless it stopped. By 3pm it stopped so pieced together this outfit and headed out with my Canon t3i to see if I could get some in before the night fell. It was still pretty cloudy out so I had to crank up the ISO to 6000... it's probably why my sort of burgundy hair looks kind of red. Nothing exciting to report about this outfit, the crocheted knit topper came from Macy's maybe 5yrs ago... the brown top was from bought probably around the same time and the skirt.... well I collect maxi skirts so I have probably two dozen of them!

I'm so glad that I didn't give this little patchwork set to goodwill! Ladies.... you know how we are, if it goes out of style and you think you're never going to wear it again... think again! I've had this set for 15yrs, they're by a company called Miu Miu. I bought it at a little boutique in New York when I was on a layover... I used to be a flight attendant for 20yrs but i'm retired now.

Being retired... it's hard not to get up and put on a pair of leggings...... leggings are my life right now and I have plenty of them. I have to separate them from gym wear to casual wear because leggings meant to be worn in the gym has quite a bit of lycra for the stretch and pull. Even if I don't make it to the gym, I can turn my gym leggings into something a little fashionable by throwing on a pair of boots and a great top and go run errands. Living in CA it's quite the norm to wear legging everyday.

I purchased several great finds on Amazon in the last few weeks! If you follow my blog then you'll know that I try and find items on Amazon similar to those worn by the younger fashionista's that I admire. This dress is made to be worn or layered over several pieces. It can we worn with shorts, a skirt, jeans or even leggings as how I wore them. This gave me the light coverage I needed over my tank top keeping my arms from being exposed while I was out and about in some very cool air conditioned areas.

I don't wear jeans that much but when I do it's a pair from my favorite brand PZI Jeans. I have jeans from this brand dating back to 2007. Before I retired I was introduced to this brand by another Flight Attendant that had curves like mine. We could only wear black jeans through the airports and they couldn't be low rise or hip huggers... yep we had a dress code. This really limited our selections because back then everything was low rise and that didn't suit the figures of the more curvier girls like me. This brand specializes in jeans that flatter curvier women without showing that top butt fat...you know what i'm talking about!

I put together three different outfits with this cute jumpsuit that I found from Mystylemode, a trendy online boutique that I discovered. Their prices are very reasonable for the type of fabrics they carry and this trendy little jumpsuit cost $41.00, I ordered mine in a size medium because i'm 5'7"and I weigh 135 in case you're wondering!

I've had this tropical strapless halter top for quite sometime. I purchased it from JC Penny's and never worn it. I'm top heavy so I have to be very careful not to over accentuate in that area and halter tops have a tendency of doing just that. The skirt I've had for awhile also, I think I have about 5 black maxi skirts that I rotate through and I really like this one because it has a bit of a flair at the bottom.

It's hard to explain but I love feeling confident in every way possible and that also applies to my daily life struggles. I like looking put together even when I know i'm going to be sitting in a chair for 3 hours having my chemotherapy treatment. Today was my 3rd treatment and the first time I let my husband sit with me while having it. I told him that I was going to fall asleep 30 mins after the infusion started and if he wanted to leave and come back in a few hours I was okay with it... but to my surprise he stayed working on his laptop. He bought something to drink and snack on but he told me he did take a little nap!

I was searching for sheer maxi dresses on the internet because I wanted another option to pair with leggings instead of always wearing longer blouses or sweaters. While searching, I was not loving the prices of some of the really cute ones..... so I went to my trusted Amazon site and searched for sheer maxi dresses and so many cute ones popped up I could hardly choose. I bought three from different sellers all in a size large. These were sellers from China and we all know clothes from China automatically run small so you have to go up two or three sizes. I wear a small or size 4 to 6 so I ordered a large and it fits perfectly. There's elastic in the waist and lots of room for jeans or heavier leggings.

Many of us have already been to a Blogging Conference during our time as a Blogger and i'm no exception. This year the BlogHer conference was held in Los Angeles, my home town so I knew I had to attend. This was my first conference and as expected, it was a blast! I had such a good time and enjoyed meeting and networking with so many people.

Normally I don't wear black in the summer but I just couldn't pass up this cute little Romper that I purchased from Target at the beginning of summer. The gladiator sandals I purchased from Amazon and decided to bling them up myself because they were so plain. You can find the links to the exact same gladiators and links to similar rompers on Amazon below.

My pink shawl must be over 100yrs old! I have them in a few colors tucked away in a dresser drawer outside in my garage. I love wearing them to church to cover my arms since my church always has the air conditioner on and it tends to get cold. Anywho.... you might see these again because I have them in turquoise, gold, red, black and navy!
