Sunny Days Here I Come!

 I have to admit, planning to pack for my trip to sunny Florida was a bit confusing in the beginning. The temps are so cold here in Maine that I can't even imagine what it's like to be warm! I think I did okay though. I simply planned out a color scheme. I started with navy and white and added the apricot for a punch of color. I can mix and match all of these items and I can dress them up with the one pair of gold sandals that I am bringing or dress them down with a pair of navy blue Keds. Gotta keep that suitcase light ya know!

This "Bon Voyage" tee from Talbots is a necessity for my trip to sunny Florida!

You might as well say it. We are in the nitty gritty of winter. We still have a ways to go, so we might as well embrace it with some cute winter attire!

The good thing about this time of year are all the winter clearance sales. WOW! There are some really great deals out there! Above you will find a cute look that will keep you warm and keep you stylish and below are the links that will lead you right to them:

1. Blue Turtleneck Pullover Sweater from OASAP

2. Crossbody Handbag with Lock Detail from Target

I know it's difficult sometimes to get dressed in the winter time, but if you have some sweaters in pretty colors then I promise you will enjoy it just a little bit more.

Above all, it's important to wake up every day and be grateful. Why, you ask? Because you have a lot to be grateful for!

The Scarf Tucked In Belt Trick

 Well, I call it a trick because the people who look at you will think, "How did she do that?" when in fact it's just a scarf looped around your neck, you know, the normal way everyone wears one, except I just put a belt on to hold it in place. It makes a scarf a little more wearable all day verses looking like I belong in the outdoors.

In my personal opinion, the bigger the scarf the better with this look. The one I am wearing is fairly light, but it worked just as well.

Here are some of my favorite oversized scarves that I think you might have fun belting this season:

White Is Right For Winter!

People say that wearing white in the winter is just plain wrong. I ask those people to give me one good reason why they think this, and they stumble every time. 

When wearing white in the winter all you need to know is to watch your fabrics. Wear white in heavier weight cotton, corduroy and wool and you will be just fine! 

Trust me, wearing white in the winter can be quite invigorating and it will wake up your senses every time you put it on. And we need all the help we can get during these dark days. Here in Maine the sun is setting around 4:00pm! But some days it seems to be dark by 3:30 with all those clouds in the way. Gotta love Mother Nature!
